HOW IT ALL BEGAN

The phrase - “Silly Women” - is actually taken from 2 Timothy 3:6, where Paul is writing to young Pastor Timothy describing the type of jacklegs in the church in the last days. (His list sure sounds like the modern day church too -- but I’m keeping my mouth shut since I used to be one of the biggest hell raisers in the church! But that's between us, okay.) It took Paul four verses to list all the characteristics of these unsavory saints ... and he rang my doorbell on a couple of them! In verses 6-7, Paul went on to say that those kinds of people are the ones who can work their way into the homes of SILLY WOMEN and take advantage of them because they are loaded down with sins and swayed by all kinds of evil desires. He says in verse 7 that silly women are ever learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

That hit me like a brick. “Ever learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth…” Ever learning... Ouch. That was me. Busting through the church doors at least four times a week. Heading auxiliaries so I could be the shot-caller. Quoting scripture backwards and forwards. Shouting until the organist’s fingers went numb. Holding down The Amen Corner (except for when the pastor was condemning stuff I did on the sneaky-sneaky). Speaking in tongues on Sunday and cussing in English on Monday. Yet I refused to accept the truth about myself. The old folks used to say that the truth hurts. And the Bible says that the truth will make us free. If I don’t know anything else, I know that the old folks are usually right and the Bible is always right. The truth was indeed painful. My life was jacked up because I kept making jacked up choices. To my surprise, my life got better around the same time my choices got better. That’s when I set out on a journey to discover WHY I did all the stupid stuff I did.

SILLY WOMEN ~ THE CONFERENCE

Silly Women ~ The Conference addresses some of the “WHY” questions that we have. These unanswered “WHY” questions and many more like them are the reason so many of us feel burdened and unable to reach our God-given potential. BUT … a change is coming!

Silly Women ~ The Conference benefits women of all ages. The freedom to choose is the greatest gift given to us by God -- much greater than salvation because we must CHOOSE to accept it. The basic premise of The Conference is to help people recognize that “we have choices ALL THE TIME, and all the time WE HAVE CHOICES." The power of making better choices starts with each of us individually. We have the power to change our lives, one choice at a time!
“... I have set before you life or death, blessing or curse.
Oh, that you would choose life; that you and your children might live!
Choose to love the Lord your God and to obey him and to cling to him,
for he is your life and the length of your days.”
DEUTERONOMY 30:19-20 ~ THE LIVING BIBLE
What is a Silly Woman?

Silly Women come in all flavors, shapes, colors, ages and economic backgrounds. In our opinion, a Silly Woman is any woman who has ever done or is currently doing some of the silly things we once did. But the Bible defines a Silly Woman by the people she allows in her life. The scripture lists in detail the type of people 'who worm their way into the homes and gain control over weak-willed women.' (NIV) If it sounds like we're talking about your Silly Friend, please turn her on to www.SillyWomen.info. However, if it sounds like we're talking about you, don't feel bad because you're not the only Silly Woman in the world.

We (Silly Gail and Silly YoBo) come from a long line of women who have been suckers for love. We never knew our maternal grandmother because her stupid butt tried to get between her husband (our grandfather) and his girlfriend, who they say was also his cousin. Guess which one of the three ended up dead, leaving behind four children between the ages of 6 and 10? (Hint: We just told you that we never knew our grandmother.)

Our mama was raised by her ho-hopping daddy and her maternal grandmother, who was also a sucker for love, but we’re going to save that story for later. The legacy passed on from these women to us was the insatiable need to look for love in all the wrong places. It is obvious that we never had an example of how good love looks and feels.

So Silly Women, trust us, we know what all of you are going through. We do not mean to point fingers and place blame. Nor is it our intention to beat up on men because dysfunctional men come from the same homes as needy and insecure women. It is not a man’s fault that he is screwed up, just like it’s not your fault for wanting that screwed up man in your screwed up life. We are all products of our environment.

It is time for Silly Women to stop being ashamed of our choices and behavior. Instead, we must take accountability for our actions and re-create our normal. God has not given someone else the responsibility for our happiness. It is not too late to realize that there is a lot of our lives left to be salvaged. God has given each of us the ability to make better choices, and thus have a better life.
