Here at Equipping Godly Women, we’re all about … (drum roll please)… Equipping and teaching you how to be a Godly Woman! (bet you didn’t see that coming!)
It’s what we’ve done for years now, and I LOVE it!
But recently, I had somebody ask me a very good question. We had just met. I had just introduced myself and my website. And she asked: “So what does being a Godly woman mean to you?”
I thought that was just a really good question! After all, how can I equip you how to be a Godly woman if we don’t first define what being a Godly woman means?? And how will you know if you’re on the right track to being a Godly woman if you don’t know for sure where you’re headed??
So on this week’s podcast, I’m sharing How to Be a Godly Woman — including the 3 characteristics of a Godly woman (that most of us honestly don’t have!)

How to Be a Godly Woman
(abridged audio transcript)
Godly Woman Characteristic #1: Love God
“Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together. One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.” –Matthew 22:34-38
Do you love God? And I don’t just mean of all the religions that are out there, if you had to pick one, you would pick Christianity. But honestly: Do you love God?
Do you love him with this huge love that is so big that it just pours out of you, or is He just another thing on an already full to-do list? How much do you actually love God?
If you want to know how to be a Godly woman, if that’s what you are aspire to be, this is the very first characteristic of a Godly woman that we need to cultivate.
Godly Woman Characteristic #2: Love People
“And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” –Matthew 22:39
If you want to learn how to be a Godly woman, it’s not enough to just love God. You also have to ask yourself: Are you loving your neighbor as well?
What about the people at your work who get on your nerves? What about your in-laws… are you patient with them? What about your children? Are you kind? Are you loving towards them?
“But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.” –Luke 6:27-28
Who are your enemies?
Now, I don’t mean people who are actively trying to kill or destroy you, but those people who you consider “on the other team” or “on the other side.”
What about politicians? How are you treating them? Are you praying that God would raise them up as Godly leaders? Are you praying that God would give them the wisdom and the courage to make good choices? Or are you just getting on social media and talking about what terrible people they are and talking trash about them?
What about people who believe in abortion? Do you get on Facebook and just argue with them about how you are right and they are wrong? Or do you pray for them? Do you pray for the moms who feel like they don’t have any other choice?
Are you reaching out to the single moms? Are you reaching out to the children who don’t have parents who can support them spiritually the way that they need? Are you stepping in where others have left the gap? What needs are in your area?
Godly Woman Characteristic #3: Commit to be ALL IN
“Large crowds were traveling with Jesus, and turning to them he said: “If anyone comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters—yes, even their own life—such a person cannot be my disciple. And whoever does not carry their cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.” — Luke 14:25-27
So the third characteristic of a Godly woman is someone who is committed to be all in no matter what. And I spoke about this a little bit more in my last video, so I won’t get into it too in-depth here…
But let me ask you: Are you somebody who is committed to be all in? Are you someone who says, “It does not matter what else the world has to offer me. None of it matters. I don’t want any of it. If I have things that’s fine, and if I don’t, I don’t care, because I am following after God hard-core. No matter what. No matter what it cost me. He is where I am headed.”
Because if you want to know how to be a Godly woman, this is the life that God is calling us to.
