There is so much information being passed around these days for women on every level, in and out of the church. And it can be terribly confusing at times; how to lean in, how to lead, to be a boss, a great negotiator, a glass ceiling breaker, how to be as good or better than any man in the room, how to stand out and be heard, how to rule well and teach your daughters to do the same, how to lose weight and dress better, how to get everything you want all at the same time.
But there is “scarce little” (as my grandmother would say) on how to be biblically wise, astute, sharp and discerning. Bringing godly honor to not only ourselves but our families as well. Everyone wants to be liked, and it can be argued that we all want to be loved, but the bible tells us that “Favor can be deceitful and pursuing beauty in and of itself is just vanity.” It goes on to state: “Now a woman that feareth the Lord, she should be praised”!
Why did I want to gather virtually? Well, it’s extremely hard for women to get together these days. We are all so busy and so spread out. I wanted to use this site and this platform to remind us all of who we are and the power we have as women in Christ. Not in a strong-armed way, not even in a loud or boisterous way but in an inspirational and occasionally witty-satirist type of way (is that even a word)? Well, the way my grandmother and my mother-in law-showed me.
Through this virtual medium, I plan to regularly blog, share some pictures and videos and encourage, motivate and perhaps even inspire in my own unique style. Now for some of you, this may be a whole new and refreshing line of conversation and for others, it may just be a reminder that will welcome you back home to some familiar truths. It’s our own fellowship, encouragement, discipleship, mentoring and support outlet all at the same time. After all iron always sharpens iron.
Now, I plan to jump all over the map cause that’s kind of what my life is about! I wear a lot of hats. We all do. Sometimes I’ll blog about food and even share my killer miso sauce for salmon (I will divulge for sure I promise). It’s discipleship techniques – hospitality is my secret weapon. It may be travel or the humorous and often mundane truths of my life, which is typical of so many of my female friends. It’s some great DIY project or a fail-proof technique to giving the best dinner parties. It’s conversations we can share about God and our walk with him. Other times it’s featured blogs or videos of ladies that I admire and have learned from. Women who are living life to the fullest no matter the circumstances or obstacles that they have faced. Real people just like us who have opened their eyes and ears and said yes Lord, this is a beautiful life and I want to make an impact in some small way.
Something quick to keep you thinking whenever you check-in. It’s my honest introspection on walking well with God that we can all recognize about each other. At the end of the day, we should enjoy this beautiful life that he has given us and still remember who we are in Christ. It will all fit into my writings, somehow ladies, I promise!
So, pop around, read a few things and come back as often as you like. I’m so happy to have met you. I would love to have you follow me regularly as we discover some wonderful people, receive inspiration and encouragement on our own lives and hopefully find joy taking this journey together…
