Because, what I really want women to acquire in this series — is the knowledge that YOU ARE VALUABLE. You are a treasure. You are a gem. You don’t need to compare yourself with anyone, because you are without compare, an exquisite and rare creation. You have been designed with infinite wisdom. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. You have gifts that you alone possess, to bestow upon people that you alone can reach, to produce a harvest that you alone can reap.
