A Strong Woman vs. A Woman of Strength

“A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape…but a woman of strength builds relationships to keep her soul in shape.

 A strong woman isn’t afraid of anything… but a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of her fear.

 A strong woman won’t let anyone get the best of her… but a woman of strength gives the best of her to everyone.

 A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future… but a woman of strength realizes life’s mistakes can also be unexpected blessings and capitalizes on them.

 A strong woman walks sure footedly but a woman of strength knows when to ask for help.

 A strong woman wears the look of confidence on her face… but a woman of strength wears grace.

 A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey… but a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong.”

(Abridged version of a poem by Luke Easter and Dee Cheeks)


This is Steve’s favorite poem for women he loves and admires.
How are you strong that you don’t always acknowledge in yourself?
How do you see a ‘woman of strength’ different, more empowered and admirable than a ‘strong woman’?
