A popular quote, with no credit

“A woman should be so lost in God that a man has to seek Him in order to find her.”

Have you seen this quote floating around the Internet? I’ve seen it a lot. No one seems to know where it originally comes from. I’ve seen a couple people’s names attached to it, but I was never able to find it on an official website or published book.

Only a couple minutes on Google, and I see there are several versions out there: “A woman’s heart should be so lost in God that a man has to seek Him in order to find her.” And then I was browsing through the Desiring God blog, and it looks like one author has changed it for a younger audience: “A girl should get so lost in God, that a guy has to seek God to find her!” But finally, a name! Dannah Gresh. I haven’t confirmed it yet, but it looks like she does conferences and retreats for young girls across the US, so it was probably something shared there.
