Call for Guest Posters

So it has been almost six months since I issued my "Women in the Scriptures Challenge" and I'm curious to know how it is going. In July I'd like to host some post written by some of my readers who are taking the Women in Scriptures Challenge and how it has affected them. I don't care if you just barely started the challenge, if you've been doing it "on and off", or if you've been diligent about it... I would just love to hear what you've learned and what your experience has been.

So PLEASE if you've started the challenge (even if it has only been for a week) please send me a post. It could be about a specific woman you've learned about, a specific insight you've had, how your perspective on the scriptures has changed... really just about anything you have learned. When you submit your post please put your text the body of your email instead of a file-- that makes it easier to re-post it. Also include a little "blip" about yourself with links to your blog or website (if you have one). If you choose to include pictures please attach them as files and make sure you include captions and the source of the picture if it doesn't belong to you.

My email is heatherlady at

I'm so excited to hear from you all!


  1. Hi
    My name is Ramona and I have been reading your blog for about a month. I am a new member to the Church of Jesus Christ and LDS. I want to take the challenge. I can tell you that the woman that gives me inspiration is Sarah, Abrahams wife. I have recently read the record of Sarah with fresh insight, and I came away feeling releived of various burdens felt by myself and most women. I was blessed to know that our Heavenly Father considers "his Handmaidens" so special that he kept his promise to Sarah to come back at the "appointed time" so that she would bear Issac. I don't have children,and until I read the record of Sarah,and heard the testimonies of women like me,I felt as if I were being punished.Now,I am 50 years old, and I probably won't have any babies any time soon, but the hope and the promise of children in the life to come,is what sustains me.
    So I will start with Sarah,and Hannah,and Rebekkah. Thank you for this challenge.

  2. Ramona,

    Thank you so much for your beautiful insights! I am always amazed at how there is always a woman mentioned in the scriptures who helps answer hard questions of our soul. I'm inspired to hear how you've accepted your trial of infertility... that is beautiful. I'm so glad you are doing the challenge... I'd love to hear what you learn!
