A 52-week devotional for women. Describing a woman as "defiant" can generate and unsettling response. Some aren't comfortable with women, especially women of faith being defiant. Discomfort, however, is not necessarily a bad thing. Growth often stems from a place of discomfort. I would argue that defiant is not a dirty word from which women should disassociate. In some respects, defiance is the only appropriate response for women who are determined to live authentic and free in a world that is designed to keep women in a certain place. A little defiant faith is requirement for women seeking to live the abundant, authentic lives Jesus afforded us.
