Christian Women - MIA

I started The Christian Woman website a little over a year ago to organize all the information I had come across in researching work at home ideas and to address the role of Christian women in general. I’ve been longing to update the site to focus more on topics that are uplifting to Christian women and to promote frugality for giving, but as a working mother who is “domestically-challenged” I can’t seem to find the time. However, I have been doing some researching and brainstorming here and there and have been disappointed by the lack of literature available on historical Christian women.

Now maybe I’m just not looking in the right places. My problem is that I don’t know too many names of great Christian women in history, so perhaps if I looked for information on particular women, I would have more luck. However, I have found some website listings and I must say, the pickins are slim. Is it that the roles that women usually take are out of the spotlight or that the lives of great Christian women just haven’t been documented well? I’m guessing it’s a combination of both.

I was happy to find a devotional type book that spotlights women from the scripture and provides insight into their lives. Not quite what I was looking for, but it will do for now. Once I start the book I hope to have some things to share. Ultimately I hope to highlight more women and women’s issues on my website. I have to stick with that kind of stuff since no one would appreciate my advice on cooking or cleaning.

Ha - really I am not a spamer, just like to comment on posts - really.
Not sure which devotional book you are talking about, but I have one that is titled "Women of the Bible" by Ann Spangler. But maybe we are talking about the same book. :)
Would you mind if I add you to my blogroll? Just let me know.
In His grip,

Yes, that is the book I have. I haven't started it yet.

I would love to be added to your blogroll, thanks!

Now I'm off to take a look at your blog.

I think that (in church history), the women have been the supporters, not the main event.
