Church Lady-Freed To be a Woman of God

Somewhere along the way, this woman of noble character—wholesome, God-fearing, lovable, kind, giving, and serving—lost her respect. You’ve seen her. You may even be her—the godly and beautiful woman who, in spite of herself, has resembled her complete opposite twin, evil and ugly, a time or two in her life. And wouldn’t you know it? That was the exact moment someone snapped a picture and recorded it on the hard drive of her mind, filed it under Stereotypes, and titled it Church Lady. It’s time for a do-over, a truce, a meeting of the sisters. Delete the hard drive, wipe out the negative stereotype, and shine up her tarnished reputation. Join Chandra Peele and reclaim the honor and humility that is the Church Lady.
