I was a strong willed child. I am a strong willed woman. A strong will, in and of itself, is not a bad thing – when it is bent to the will of God and his service.
That’s what I’d add to this quote: Resist the urge to “tame” a strong will person be it man or woman, but instead teach the strong willed person to Whom their will should be submitted to (GOD). Because we as christians are ALL called to submission – an example set by Jesus Himself.
A strong will person bent to selfish purposes results in “bossiness” and a power struggle. A strong will person bent to the will of God accomplishes work of eternal impact.
