Trusting God to fulfill all your “What ifs” and beyond.What if you… fulfilled your dreams? weren’t afraid? needed healing and received it? believed in yourself and partnered with your amazing God? could learn to live out of your passion?
And what if you lived in the Kingdom of God, which means you live in righteousness, peace, and joy—it’s true! You can be enjoying a life of joy in the Lord, peace in the Holy Spirit, and the righteousness of Jesus Christ, your personal Savior.
for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking,
but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit (Romans 14:17).
Today you can join your “What ifs” with God’s love and anointing—and you will be amazed at what the two of you can do together!
Employing three conceptual frames; medicalization, the public-private distinction, and intersectionality, Candace Johnson examines these differences through the narratives of women in Canada, the United States, Cuba, and Honduras. In Canada and the United States, women from privileged and marginalized social groups demonstrate the differences across the North-South divide, and women in Cuba and Honduras speak to the realities of severely constrained decision-making in developing countries. Each case study includes narratives drawn from in-depth interviews with women who were pregnant or who had recently had children. Johnson argues that women’s expressed preferences in different contexts reveal important details about the inequality that they experience in that context, in addition to as various elements of identity. Both inequality and identity are affected by the ways in which women experience the division between public and private lives – the life of the community and the life of the home and family – as well as the consequences of intersectionality – the combinations of various sources of disadvantage and women’s reactions to these, either in the form of resistance or compliance.
