Carolyn Custis James (M.A. in Biblical Studies) thinks deeply about what 
it means to be a female follower of Jesus in a postmodern world. As a cancer survivor, she is grateful to be alive and determined to address the issues that matter most
. She blogs here at WhitbyForum and at Huffington Post. Her speaking and writing ministry is dedicated to addressing the deeper needs which confront both women and men as they endeavor to extend God's kingdom together in a messy and complicated world.
