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.
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.

Bible Reading and Personal Devotions
Ep. 010 - The struggle to get into God's Word on a daily basis is real. It seems like there are a million distractions and things pulling us away from being quiet before God. If we're totally honest, sometimes reading the Bible can feel like a boring chore or simply a box to check off. Have you ever felt that way? Instead of continuing on with the same plan (or no plan) and hoping for different results, let's take a step back and rethink the entire purpose of the Bible. Let's ask ourselves, "why should I read my Bible?" In today's episode, Kristen and Bethany unpack five strategies to help you create a plan to get into God's Word on a regular basis. They share their personal favorite Bible Study plans and resources to make Bible reading an exciting part of your daily life. https://www.girldefined.com www.GirlDefined.com/Devotional

Men Wearing Dresses...What's the Big Deal?
007 - A recent cover of Vogue featured Harry Styles wearing a dress. Yes, a dress. Is this a big deal or is it not? We see people responding on both ends of the spectrum. Some are applauding Harry as being bold, edgy, and forward-thinking. Others are appalled that a man is being praised for wearing women's clothing. The goal of today's episode isn't to discuss personal opinions. It's to figure out how we, as Christians, should we respond to this.
