Strong women never get any sympathy. Ever notice that? Who do strong women go to when they feel like whining? Hey, it’s tough wearing the weight of the world on our shoulders. Maybe that’s what blogs are for. J
Seriously, I never considered myself a strong woman, and yet family members and friends tell me I possess that quality. I’m someone they don’t have to worry about – which is good and bad, I guess. Good because I’m not a burden but bad because I get ignored when I do need a shoulder to cry on. And let’s be honest; we all need a shoulder from time to time.
And so it was with this paradox in mind that I set out to create Valerie, (Unwilling Warrior), Sarah, (Uncertain Heart, Renna (Unexpected Love) and Bethany and Annetta (Undaunted Faith) I wanted to show their strength and determination while illustrating their weaknesses as well. For instance, Sarah McCabe longs to assert her independence and yet she’s completely dependent on others. The contradiction between self and her situation gets Sarah into all kinds of mishaps and forces her to bravely search her heart and become the woman God wants her to be.
