Feature: The Strong Women Who Define The 'World's Best'


The above quote summarizes the essence of a modern day woman. Kristen Dalton Wolfe writes in Inspiration about the qualities of a modern day lady. A modern day woman is gracious, steadfast, a leader, promotes moral excellence, is honest, is self-aware and she thinks before she speaks.

A modern day woman is the best version of herself, draws boundaries, is temperate, hospitable, uses her words wisely and represents herself with class and dignity on social media.

She is original, honoring, knows when to let things go, humble, adaptable, kind and expresses genuine interest in others.

She takes pride in her appearance at all times, noble, peace maker, cares about health and hygiene, she gains knowledge, listens, noble, seeker of truth, has a heart of justice and believes in her creator.
