What is God’s design for women? In a world that is constantly redefining our worth and identity, we need to know that the only one who can define us is the One who designed us. The Girl Defined Show is for Christian girls everywhere, offering a distinctly God-centered view of beauty, femininity, identity, and worth. Join Kristen and Bethany every Monday for a hope-filled, counter-cultural, and totally down-to-earth conversation about God’s radically better vision for femininity.
Recovering Womanhood from Toxic Femininity
016 - As women, we ALL want to be happy, fulfilled, content, worthy, and loved… but so many women (whether Christian or not) find themselves feeling the opposite. In fact, in researching for Kristen and Bethany's first book, Girl Defined, they came across a study published in the UK Daily Mail which stated, quote: “Women are less happy nowadays despite 40 years of feminism. Despite having more opportunities than ever before, they have a lower sense of well-being and life satisfaction.” This is heartbreaking. Instead continuing down the same path and hoping for different results, let's ask some hard questions. Let's talk about why women are less happy and less fulfilled. Let's talk about the lies many women believe about their identity. Let's talk about what the secular world teach about being women in today’s society. Let's talk about toxic femininity. In today's episode, Kristen Clark and Portia Collins are discussing God's good design for womanhood and offering hope-filled biblical truths to guide the modern girl.

Purity Culture: What Went Right and Wrong
Ep. 012 - When did Christians start talking about virginity and purity like it was the most important thing? When did sex become the big “no-no?” And how did purity culture become such a hot button issue? Kristen and Bethany both grew up in the height of the purity movement. Purity rings and true love waits were a part of their young adult years. They both had purity rings and both advocated for things like... saving your first kiss until marriage. Their insight on the issue of sex, purity and purity culture come from a unqiue perspective. Having grown up in the movement they speak from personal experience, as well as bring biblical insight to the table. In today’s episode, Kristen and Bethany debunk three false narratives about purity and unpack the truth of what God actually says about sex.
Christian Girls With a Radically Different Purpose
Do you find yourself struggling to be a girl of the Word instead of the world? Kristen and Bethany have found themselves in that place many times. There are constantly things pulling us, as girls, away from our greatest purpose, identity, and mission as Christians. We need to remember that we aren't just girls. We are Christian girls. And that should radically change everything about us. We should have a radically different purpose in our: Goals Relationships Identity Sexuality Politics Family Social Media etc. Thankfully God is the one who gives His children the strength to live for Him despite opposition.
