Before we get into the biblical womanhood resources guide, we want to recommend our 12-day Colossians Bible study: The Preeminence of Christ.
It’s the quickest way to start a daily Bible reading habit and learn how to get more out of God’s Word. Colossians is a short and powerful letter by Paul, because it’s all about Jesus and his authority over all things. The Preeminence of Christ study will teach you how to read the Bible and apply it more faithfully to your daily life.
The Preeminence of Christ
12-Day Bible Study
This Bible study will help you set a steady pace to study the book of Colossians over 12 days. Each section highlights a particular passage, provides background context and helps the reader examine what God is saying.
Then, it finishes with a few questions to guide your personal application.
Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters exists to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the exposition of Scripture and personal relationships in order to equip the Church to impact this generation.
The Goal of Biblical Womanhood
- Take Up Your Shield – The world is trying to distract you and pull you away from Christ. Here is what you need to know to recognize your enemy, put on your armor, and pursue the Lord faithfully.
- The Fight Against Sin, Our Affections for God – In Ephesians 2, Paul tells Christians that we’re in a battle. The local church needs godly women who are pursuing the Lord and fighting sin. Here are 6 truths that will inflate your affections for God.

- The Steadfast Love of God – Here is what Scripture says the steadfast love of God is, with practical guidance on how to look at the covenants and promises God gives us in his Word. This is how we protect ourselves against false ideas that creep into our hearts and minds.
- The Power of Intentions – Right thinking leads to right living. Our thoughts can sometimes become so repetitive that they can become sinful in the way that we’re thinking. This is how we submit to the Holy Spirit.
- The Fruit of the Spirit is Christ – We can’t guard ourselves against the ways of this world if we’re not walking with Christ. Let the Spirit lead you by pursuing the Lord through reading his Word and prayer.
- The Fruit of the Spirit is Cultivated by Christ – Counterfeit fruit won’t last. Too many Christian women decorate their lives to look clean, but fail in walking with Jesus daily. The Lord is patient with our failures and works to sanctify us; so let’s walk in a manner worthy of the Gospel.
What the Bible Says and Doctrine

Biblical Womanhood Resources on Culture
- A Christ-Centered Home – Are your kids being raised in a home that strives to keep Christ at the center of everything? Here are some thoughts to consider.

Women in our culture tend to either flex their independence or are content with being dominated. Here’s how to recognize our natural temptation toward sin and fight our flesh by submitting to Christ.
- Consistently Walking with Christ – God’s will for your life is sanctification, but Satan wants to distract. Keep your eyes on Jesus; he is all you need.

- Christ Makes us Whole – Rahab’s life is a message of hope—in tune with suffering. We serve a God that is bigger than our brokenness. Your sin is not bigger than the Gospel, so don’t let brokenness define you.
