4 Women Role Models I’ve Patterned My Life After

In today’s world there is so much chaos.  Women marching for what they call “oppressed women” here in the United States and the rest of the world.   From what I have been able to figure out these women who’ve started this march are not at all oppressed!

These  are women who have everything a person could want or need.  Million dollar homes, careers, credit, food, a roof over there heads, the freedom to marry whom they choose, able to obtain a credit card in their own name, buy a car, a home, etc all on their own.

 Oh and let’s not leave out that in the United States of America women could not vote until the 1970’s! VOTING! 

Which brings me to the top five women role models in my life.

5. Betsy Ross

Without Besty Ross and her patriotism for these thirteen colonies of the United States of America would there have been a flag? 

The Flag Of America And Betsy Ross stand for something.   

Betsy Ross herself was a humble seamstress creating a flag for the emerging nation is a treasured national legend.   

She inspires me because of her creativity and perseverance to complete a task inspire of all obstacle.

4. Esther 

Do you know the story of a little Jewish girl who grows up to become Queen of Persia and saves her people?

Esther was born  in 450 BC or there about.  Her journey started as becoming adopted by her cousin Mordichi.   Later she would come before King Ahasueurs of Persia as one of the many virgins of that time period only to be chosen and become the next queen of Persia. 

Her story is one of never ending faith in Jehova.  Her wisdom, patience and humbleness lead her to save thee Jewish people from extinction.

Patience, grace and perseverance was a testament of her life.

3. Katie Couric 

During high school I  wrote for the Aurora Central High School newspaper.  Researching stories, interviewing teachers and past alumni helped me turn writing into passion. Then I saw this strong, passionate outgoing women on the Today show.  Her name was Katie Couric.  At times she was soft spoken and other times her words were stern and harsh for some of those she was interviewing.  I wanted to be just like her.

I may not be a journalists; however  I am a published author of the book Terror In The North Tower.  Katie Couric along with the band Aerosmith and a few others are celebrity mentions.  The main reporter Sharline Pickles was created and fashioned after Katie herself.

Katie Couric always stay honest in your reporting and keep us smiling.

And lastly my number one pick is my mother Reverend Barbara Elizabeth Hickock Agnew. 

Born in Binghamton, New York on November 7, 1929 to Charles and Olga Hickock. She went of to college and received her bacholorets degree in Histology.  Later in Denver, CO she would meet my father Reverend Frank Roland Agnew. 

My mother taught me to always speak mind, poise in a room with grace, pray without ceasing.  She always said to me; ” Alicia no matter what happens in life always remember that Jesus Christ is on the throne and we serve a might God.  Never ever forget that I will always love you and that God will keep watch over you even when I’m gone”.

My mother passed away on June 21, 1993.

There were times when she would call me on the phone just to share a  new scripture she has learned that day.  Sometimes I would get so annoyed that she was calling.  Now I’d give anything just to hear her voice again.

Role Models 

I believe every person should have someone to look up to.  To cherish, love and be crazy with.

Do you have a role model?  Someone you pattern your life after?

Comments are welcome and as always
