Womanhood: blessed, not cursed

True womanhood is subject to God's law of good, not to cycles of suffering.

For generations women have suffered from the assumption that being female carries with it certain liabilities—such as periodic pain. For some it's a physiological belief: that normal body functions are likely to cause discomfort. For others it's a theological belief: that original sin, stemming from Adam and Eve, brought a curse to mankind forever after. Either way women are left feeling burdened.

But is such suffering in accord with God's law? It is not. God's law is the law of divine Love, which brings good, not evil, to His creation. An understanding of God's law has actually brought freedom from pain to many women.
