What do Young Women Need to Hear?

In about 2 hours I have 20 young women coming to my house. I will be teaching them about …..ummmmm…….something? Anything?

I am not so sure what that something will be, yet. I’m not usually this much of a procrastinator, ask my hubby, he knows how  “over prepared” I can be for things like this. But for some reason, I just have a peace that it will come, but I need your help.


I’m sitting down to brainstorm, so I thought I would collaborate with you.


What I know right now is that being an 18/19 year old woman in today’s world is not easy, and what they want to hear and what they need to hear are totally different. I’m trying to reflect on what I would have needed to hear at that age, but these group of girls know Jesus, I didn’t. They’re in bible college, surrounded by mentors, I wasn’t.


So what does a young, female, bible college student need to learn from someone who grew up caught up in every entanglement imaginable?


I feel that the pure desire of a young woman is to love, to be loved (feel valued) and to be happy.


So if I am to facilitate in one meeting, how they can get there, what would I tell them?



#1 . Don’t settle.

#2.  Accept Who you are.

#3. Take control of your emotions

#4.  Take your thoughts captive. 


Can you add to this list? What does a young woman in today’s world need to know?

    (if they are single) They need to learn to love themselves and be content with being single and in love with Jesus before seeking a man…..well at least that’s how it happened with me. I needed to learn and I did learn that once I found my self complete and satisfied in Jesus, it was only then that he blessed me with a man. Won’t happen like that for everyone, but it may happen for some. Biggest thing I suppose is learning to love your self at that age and not find worth in what a guy thinks of you. Seems so cliché and the typical thing to say to a young girl, but it was real in my life.

    Look at what the lie the devil was telling you with each of ‘the entanglements’ you were caught up in. How we struggle may present itself differently but I suspect the devil uses some of the same lies to trap young women. And I know for me I learn best when I hear personal testimonies of God working in someone’s life. My advise is be vulnerable and expose the lies that trapped you. Bible college or not, I think young women would would be able to learn best about how to get freedom and victory in their lives from another woman who’s gotten to the other side and got freedom and victory over a struggle. The lie that comes to mind that I remember believing at that age was “You’re not worth it”

      Yes, that’s really good thank you. I was thinking a long the same lines.
