E. G. White Quotes About Women

                                        “We may do a noble work for God if we will. Woman does not know her power for God…There is a higher purpose for woman, a grander destiny. She should develop and cultivate her powers, for God can employ them in the great work of saving souls from eternal ruin” (Testimonies Vol. 4, p. 642 and Evangelism, p. 465).


                                      “There never was a time when more workers were needed than at the present. There are brethren and sisters throughout all our ranks who should discipline themselves to engage in this work, in all our churches something should be done to spread the truth. It is the duty of all to study the various points of our faith” (Review and Herald, April 1, 1880).   


                                       “If there were twenty women where now there is one, who would make this Holy Mission (one-to-one ministry) their cherished work, we should see many more converted to the truth. The refining, softening influence of Christian women is needed in the great work of preaching the truth” (Evangelism, p. 471).


                                       “There certainly should be a larger number of women engaged in the work of ministering to suffering humanity… When believing women shall feel the burden for souls…they will be working as Christ worked. They will consider no sacrifice too great to make to win souls to Christ” (Evangelism, p. 465).


                                        “Intelligent Christian women may use their talents to the very highest account… wives and mothers should in no case neglect their husbands and their children, but they can do much without neglecting home duties…” (Welfare Ministry,  p. 164).
