A Woman of Influence

Lisa Rice wrote this.

“Every woman whether rich or poor, married or single, has a circle of influence within which, according to her character, she is exerting a certain amount of power for good or harm. Every woman, by her virtue or her vice, by her folly or her wisdom, by her levity or her dignity, is adding something to our national elevation or degradation. A community is not likely to be overthrown where woman fulfills her mission, for by the power of her noble heart over the hearts of others, she will raise that community from its ruins and restore it again to prosperity and joy.”
~ John Angell James

Today’s flashy, brassy female personalities could learn a few things from the public figures of yesteryear. Author, speaker and broadcaster, Elisabeth Elliot (1926 – 2015) was a measurer of words. She spoke with conviction yet made a point of using a quiet voice which drew the listener in. Humble wisdom does have influence. Elisabeth Elliot was the epitome of it.
