To Be a Handmaid of the Lord - Homeschool Edition

Encouraging young women to confidence in the Lord

What Every Young Woman Needs to Know to Grow into a Confident Christian Woman

“To Be a Handmaid of the Lord” takes the student through scriptures that prove that each woman is created for a special purpose. It shows how God values every woman in very high esteem, and He has from the very beginning. This study puts into your hands a foundation on which to build your own confidence in the face of the conflicting concepts Satan offers through our society’s devices – the media, fashion industry, politics, and even sometimes religion.

"This book was so helpful to me as a young woman going through high school! I felt so loved by my Creator and inspired to be the best I could be and serve Him with all I had."

- Paige

The World Offers Young Women Nothing but Conflicting Concepts about What it Means to be a Confident Woman

This impacts the way you think and make decisions.

How you make decisions is often based upon how you see yourself and the purpose you believe you fulfill.

When your friends push ideas they say would mean you are "sexy", "a real woman", or "taking a stand for what you believe in" - if you do not know what YOU believe, you end up taking the stand you are told to take, going places you don't want to go, and doing things you don't want to do.

Peer pressure works because you aren't certain about who you are or what you want.

For a young woman, the world makes it very hard for you to see yourself as being valuable - now or in the future. Plus, other women define your value by what they see as important.

All the while, you are struggling to figure out just who you are - am I right?

To Help Young Women to Stop Listening to the World, They Need to Know How God Sees Them

It all comes back to knowing you are created by God.

He created you to do SOMETHING.

The simple truth is, if God intends you to do it - then logically it means that YOU can.

God cares about you and finds you valuable to His service. Single, Married, Old, Young - there is work that you can do.

The frustration has to be kept at bay - the noise that comes from the world; all those people who say women are one way and all those other people who say women SHOULD be another way.

Fortunately, you do not have to figure all this out by yourself!

God's word will give you the knowledge to empower a life-changing awareness of how you fit in the world in which you live.

The Question is: How Do You Step into the Role God Designed for You?

I get it. It is hard.

Here is my story.

I remember my teen years very clearly.

I avoid high school reunions because I do not want to recall the girl I was then. That version of me simply never knew where she fit in. Not as a student. Not as a Christian.

I wanted to be useful and serve others, but was always so insecure that I could not begin.

I was afraid of messing up, unsure what I was even able to offer to anyone.

In short, I was listening to Satan whisper in my ear that I wasn't old enough, good enough, wise enough, or pleasing enough to be of any use to anyone.

It took me many years - into my late twenties - before I was able to let go of the lies that I had held on to. When I was faced with two daughters struggling with the same issues at age 12 and 13, I had to do something. Telling them how wonderful they were would do them as little good as it had done when my mother tried to reassure me in that way when I was a teenager.

I needed to SHOW them what I had come to understand through studying God's word. So the material that is in this course was born.

The material in this course puts all in one place the very things my mother tried to instill in me when I was young. This course contains the information that, once I realized it for myself, saved me from traveling down a life of misery and self-doubt.

What my daughters needed is the same thing every young woman needs; to see how wonderful they already were, as well as their potential. They need to hear the words that show them the role God designed for them and how they are capable of filling it.

The only source I knew that could do all of that: God's Word.

Let me ask you:

  • Each individual is created to bring glory to God. Would it make a difference if you were convinced that was true?
  • God is aware of you, personally. Would knowing that God cares about what you do and how you feel make a difference in how you see yourself?

But will it work for me?

I believe absolutely that it will!

Everyone who goes through this study comes back with one reaction: the certainty that God cares about them as an individual and they do have something to offer to the world no matter what season of life they are currently in.

""To Be A Handmaid of the Lord" is an excellent, thorough, thought-provoking study and so desperately needed as we strive to be women "after God's own heart." There are character studies of many women of the Bible and Angela...has a gift for bringing these women to life before our eyes and helping us see that they were like us in so many ways as we read about things they did and said. The beauty of God's Word is that it is relevant and applicable to every woman who has ever lived, no matter when she lived or lives...This is such a needed book. If you are looking for a book for your own personal study or for a group of women to study together, I heartily recommend this one. Angela is truly a diligent woman whom I feel very blessed to know."

- Leslie

"Just doing the first lesson of Angela's Handmaid study made me realize so much about myself and how I should see myself. It was very empowering; I cried. I believe that all ages can benefit from this study from learning (or re-realizing) God's love for you to who you want to be as a woman and so much more."

- Ariel

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
Is this material appropriate for all ages?
The material, generally, is appropriate for anyone over the age of 11. Pre-teens as young as 9 likely could answer the questions, but the lessons on Song of Solomon and the Bonus lesson about Tamar, Tamar, and Dinah are more appropriate for someone older. It will be up to each Parent's judgment as to whether or not they think their daughter is ready for all of the content in the study.
Isn't Song of Solomon too adult to teach to Junior High girls?
Yes and No. It depends on how you teach it. The lessons are designed to handle the book modestly. There is no discussion of things young girls do not need to be thinking about. Included in the curriculum is an explanation of how Song of Solomon is handled, as well as the author's perspective of the book. If you have more questions about this, feel free to email me at [email protected]
Is there a Teacher's Guide or Answer Key to the material?
No to both. The nature of the material is that it promotes independent thinking and problem-solving. Everyone who studies the Bible comes at it from their own perspective - where they are right now. So each person may have a different response to some of the questions or on the Study Builders. The other questions are built straight out of the verses they refer to - so answers should be found within the scripture itself. Using NKJV will make the lessons easier because this is what was used for the wording of the questions. For this reason, an Answer Key is not needed. The teacher would do well to be familiar with the material - study it along with the student even - to be prepared for any questions the student may have. If you do run into a question you or the student do not understand what is being asked feel free to ask in the comments of the lesson or to email the author at [email protected]
For what grade level is this material best suited?
Junior High and High School grade levels should have no trouble with the material. The material is written with a 13 - 15-year-old in mind, but more mature 11 or 12-year-olds would have no trouble. I wouldn't expect a 9-year-old to have enough understanding from life experiences nor time spent studying the Bible to be able to do the lessons independently, but they certainly could with guidance (just leave out the Song of Solomon and Bonus lessons to use when they are older.) But again - each parent knows their child best.
Is there a study guide for boys as well?
Yes! See our school for the bible study guide "To Be a Man of God." This is the companion study guide to "To Be a Handmaid of the Lord."
