If only I could truly express how excited I am about this site!  Here we are…building a sisterhood community of Christian women from all different cultural backgrounds, denominations, professions, passions, and lifestyles who love God and live to serve Him in all areas of their lives.  It’s…ParaDime!

I was searching “women” online earlier this year and was very disappointed by the picture media sends to us.  In fact, if you search “beautiful women” in Google images right now you’ll see half-naked women, baring all for the world to see.  On top of that the “Most Beautiful Female Celebrities” are always chosen based on their physical beauty only…despite the ugliness of their personalities.  And well, let’s NOT go to the music videos, songs, “family” tv shows, and commercials that we are bombarded with each day that send us unbiblical messages about femininity, motherhood, beauty, and sisterhood (thanks Love & Hip Hop for your beautiful portrayal of that …sike!).

Well, I sat back that week and really began to reflect on the unbiblical messages that I had been sent about myself and women… and well, I was saddened.  Although I would never be seen half naked outside shaking my butt on the hood of a car (like I saw two girls doing in Chicago last night *pray church*), I certainly have been displaying my acceptance of the degrading messages in ways that many people could never see.  I had received the messages in my heart.

And that’s why ParaDime exists.

ParaDime was created so that women can have an online spot to go to where Christ is exalted, womanhood is celebrated, unfading beauty is embraced, and females all over the world are challenged to be better people each day of our lives.

The contributors on this site are not perfect and we certainly do not know everything, but we have taken on this weighty task of trying to serve you the best that we can through our experiences and varied knowledge.

We are setting a Godly standard of the Perfect Ten.

  • Wow.
  • I too was that "good" girl and based my righteousness on my actions. When I did commit one of those sins you listed (as if I wasn't already sinning with my pride in myself) I went into deep depression because I placed so much weight on being "good." When I realized (like you) that He is good and my righteousness (actions) are like filthy rags it gave me a new freedom. I was a slave to my misguided perceptions and my so called perfection. Christ offered me a freedom based on who He was and not what I did or did not do. He loved me in spite of me. That for me was freeing. Thank you for sharing this post. Now I see that I wasn't the only misguided one...lol...I'm sure there are many more of us. I look forward to reading more of your posts.
  • I am in tears after reading this! This spoke to me! I can relate! Just a while ago my selfishness rose her head and placed pressure on an old friend to be my superhero. God is the only superhero! He is near ready to comfort! Lord you have spoken! May God Bless this ministry!
  • This is a much needed topic in the church today. I dont know whats worse these church floks that fill your head with lies or that christian mingle commercial?
  • Very wise words, son. Hopefully, they are listening with spiritual ears and a heart to obey.
