Question – Just wondering why you choose Proverbs 3:15 over Proverbs 31 for the name of your women’s ministry?   Thanks, C.C.

Answer – Good question! When I choose to use Proverbs 3:15 for my ministry I figured I might get asked this question frequently. Proverbs 31 is an amazing scripture for women! However, there are two reasons I did not choose Proverbs 31; aside from the fact that there is already a Proverbs 31 ministry in existence…

One, out of obedience to the Lord. It was during a time of prayer that the Lord gave me the name for my ministry. Who am I to go against the Lord?

Two, the focus of Proverbs 31 is an example of a godly women. And while I do want my ministry to help women live more like a Proverbs 31 woman, it is not the main focus of my ministry. Biblical wisdom is my focus, and Proverbs 3:15 is about wisdom.

I have spoken with many Christian women over the years who told me they don’t read the scriptures very much; if at all. (I confess, I was once there myself). I have heard it all… I don’t have time, I don’t understand it, I get enough scripture on Sunday at church; the excuses go on and on. The truth is, if we are not immersed in the scriptures on a daily basis, then how can we really know the heart of God? How do we know if we are living in obedience to His word? How do we know that the messages we are hearing in church on Sundays, and else ware throughout the week, truly come from the word of God? If the Bible was an unnecessary part of a Christian’s daily walk, then why did God provide it to us?

My hope and prayer is that women will daily choose to make time for the Lord. That they will make spending time with Him a priority in their lives, not an afterthought or ‘leftover’. That they will immerse themselves in the word; and that through the process of studying and reading the Bible they will gain wisdom…for in gaining wisdom, not only do we draw closer to our heavenly father, we automatically become more like the woman described in Proverbs 31.

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)

Questions and Answers


Hello, and welcome to Prov315 Ministry!

I am a wife, mother to three amazing children, a homemaker, author and much more! Born just outside Chicago, I have lived several places throughout my lifetime. Right now our military family currently calls Woodstock, CT  home.

I came to a knowledge of Jesus at the age of fifteen; though I did not fully understand at that time what it meant to be HIS. Like many, I had a head knowledge and not a heart change. For years I continued to live life ‘my way’, pushing God away. (Believing myself to be saved, but heading on a fast track to Hell.) One day, I realized just how messy my life had become; surrounded in sin from trying to ‘do life” on my own. Knowing that I could not continue living as I was, I cried out to God. Once I gave myself fully over to Him; body, mind and spirit. He immediately stepped in, and began the process of healing. For the first time in my life, I understood what it really meant to forsake all and follow Him. (Luke 9: 23-24) Shortly after my salvation, I picked up a Bible and began to read the Word. WOW! It has changed my life.

I am by no means perfect; I still mess up. But now, I have a sweet relationship with my heavenly father. I no longer live in fear and I no longer look to the world for answers. My eyes are fixed on Jesus. My hope and prayers for this ministry, is that women all over the world will come to realize, that they too have a father in heaven who loves them. It does not matter your past… (Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17) You are NOT your past. If you have placed your faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior,  you are a NEW CREATION!

I pray that women will stop wandering in the wilderness, (just as I did for so many years.) That is not God’s plan for us. Just as it was not His plan for the Israelite’s to wander forty years in the wilderness after their exodus from Egypt. His plan is for us to draw close to Him!

Let’s boldly step into the sanctification process through the reading of God’s word, study, prayer, and worship. Let us not be satisfied with a safe, mundane life. Instead, let us thirst for His word. (Matthew 5:6) Let us study His Word, and rightly divide, so that we are not ashamed. (2 Timothy 2:15) Let us be different, separate from the world. Let us be His light! What an AMAZING place to be! To experience all God has for you. And not just in the world to come, but here now, today while on this earth; His healing, His blessings, His joy and His peace!
