Why WOG

The original WOG’s from left to right: Trillia Newbell, Amy Maples, Lillian Prince

It’s spaghetti night! The most anticipated night of the week. The girls will be coming over in just a bit. Amy’s bringing the sparkling grape juice this time. There’s a knock, on the door. Yay!

One at a time the girls file in. We have small group with our church tonight so we only have two hours to talk, which is just not enough time for three girls! Amy goes first. “What’s on your heart, girl?” Generally it’s the same thing. Then Lillian chats, and now she’s crying. My turn.  They encourage me to choose one thing to work on rather than ten!

Each and every Friday afternoon I had the privilege to meet with these women, women of God. We shared our hearts, cried, laughed, prayed, shared secrets, shared scriptures, and prayed some more. We were accountability partners and what started as a way for Amy to disciple me as the younger Christian, turned into years and years (approximately 8!) of meeting together faithfully.  We became best girl-friends and remain very close.

We also named ourselves, thanks to Amy,”WOGs”, Women of God. Our friendship is the inspiration for this site! We were young women relating as women, being real and raw, bearing with one another, loving each other, challenging each other. It was a real friendship; the way the Bible speaks about friendships (Proverbs 18:24, Proverbs 27:6, Proverbs 27:9).

My hope is that women will come here and find real news, real stories, real struggles, real faith and our real God all related to and for women. You will find interviews, recipes and fun features such as our Man Corner. We will also have fun contests and giveaways, and much more.
