The Beautiful Faith of Fearless Submission

Over at Girl Talk, (www.girltalk.blogs.com) Carolyn Mahaney, wife of C.J. Mahaney, and her daughters, have posted a wonderful quote by John Piper:

"A Christian woman does not put her hope in her husband, or in getting a husband. She does not put her hope in her looks. She puts her hope in the promises of God...She looks away from the troubles and miseries and obstacles of life that seem to make the future bleak, and she focuses her attention on the sovereign power and love of God who rules in heaven and does on earth whatever he pleases. She knows her Bible, and she knows her theology of the sovereignty of God, and she knows his promise that he will be with her and help her strengthen her no matter what. This is the deep, unshakeable root of Christian womanhood."

I love this quote! May we faithfully teach our daughters to be this kind of wife!
