Women in the Scriptures

I have been slow at working on the new Young Women's Medallion. I earned mine when I was 17 in 1995 I believe. It has been a very long time.
The church has re-designed the program and now any woman can obtain it. Which I want the new medallions.
Divine Nature is a wonderful value, especially when it comes to being a woman and a mother. In researching about motherhood and women I came across a wonderful website. I am not sure I can fully take on this assignment (please see Women in the Scripture challenge button at the bottom of the page)in a year alone. I plan on doing it spread out with the other things in life. It will be fun to learn more about the sacred and special women in the scriptures. Hopefully it will strengthen my appreciation for being a woman and a mother.
I have started a scripture journal on topics. Motherhood is, of course, my first topic. Although I think the women in the scriptures challenge needs its own journal. My niece had a great idea with passing the journal off to your children. I will pass the women in the scriptures off to Isabel and I will start a Men in the scriptures for my son.
