Have you ever wanted to be "mighty?"When I was
seven years old I had a hero. She was in my comic
books...she was beautiful...but mighty. She wore her
red, white and blue proudly. Nothing ever harmed
her...she was invincible, according to my comic
books. When bullets were fired they rickshaw ed off
her bracelet cuffs. She would take her lasso of truth
and put it around the enemy...and they could do
nothing but tell the truth. Oh the bad guys she caught and subdued.
I daydreamed about being "Wonder Woman." In my
imagination I would lead a group of women and we
would round up all those "bad guys". Yes, I would be
As life continued, I grew up and put my comic books away.
But I think about the 'Might" of women. Are we

There is a scripture in Ephesians 6..."BE STRONG IN THE LORD AND THE POWER OF HIS MIGHT."
We are an army of Mighty Women who love and care
for our families. Who stand against enemies and are
always in prayer. We do have the truth and that
truth is love. We do have weapons and those
