Strong-willed women, on the other hand, are often characterized as “bossy” or “controlling.”
Author Cynthia Tobias says that strong-willed women are trail blazers. Strong-willed women:
God doesn’t want to rid women of their personalities. He wants to direct their strong wills and use them for His purposes. When women submit themselves to the Lord, He can channel their strength into transforming their marriages, influencing their children in the right direction, and seeing God’s kingdom advanced in whatever other ways the Lord chooses to use them.
On our Focus on the Family Broadcast “How a Strong-Willed Woman Can Be Used by God,” Cynthia Tobias is with us to encourage strong-willed women to make the most of their abilities by harnessing their will and submitting to God’s plans and purposes for their lives.
I’d like to invite you to become a special partner with us through our monthly “Friends of Focus on the Family” program.

Before I close, I want to mention Focus on the Family’s See Life 2021. Focus is combining the convenience of an online experience with the power of an in-person live event. This engaging pro-life initiative premiered across Focus on the Family’s websites and social media channels on Friday, July 16th. Each Friday, another episode of See Life 2021 is debuting, offering powerful testimonies from women and men whose lives have been impacted by abortion and practical information about the pro-life movement for families. Then, on Saturday, August 28th, See Life 2021 will culminate with a LIVE celebration of life at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas-Fort Worth. We’d love to see you there!
