“If we mean to have heroes, statesmen, and philosophers, we should have learned women.” – Abigail Adams
It’s striking to note how many of the Bible stories featuring women pivot around each woman’s willingness and ability to speak, and speak well. From Esther’s boldness and tactfulness, to Rebekah’s initiative to be warm and gracious, to Abigail’s diplomacy and winsomeness, to Ruth’s respectful but bold address, to Deborah’s good counsel, and more, the communication skills of biblical women are often in fact a major plot point — and point of praise. The aptness, eloquence and poetry of their words are striking examples in themselves.
The aspiration we should hold is to follow their examples. The challenge is to learn how.
We have always encouraged girls to think outside the box, and pursue creative and resourceful ways to cultivate their minds. We were thrilled, then, to see this new online course in Elocution and Composition become available. Taught by the eloquent and erudite Becky Morecraft, herself the quintessential example (and one of our greatest role models) of the skills she teaches here, this promises to be a great resource for young women looking for ways to augment their educations.
