Encouraging women to stand boldly in their faith, knowing who they are in Christ;

“more precious than rubies!”

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 word of 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. Proverbs 3:15  is about wisdom. I have spoken with many Christian women over the years that 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 and 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 the word of God? How do we know that the messages we are hearing in church on Sundays and else ware throughout the week truly come from Gods word? If  the Bible was an unnecessary part of a Christian’s walk then why did God provide it to us? My hope and prayer is that women will choose to make time for the Lord daily. That they will make spending time with the Lord a priority in their lives, not an afterthought or ‘leftover’. That they will immerse themselves in the word and 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.

Hello, and welcome to Prov3:15 Ministry!

I am a wife, mother, author and inspirational speaker. Born just outside Chicago, I have lived several places throughout my lifetime; I currently call the Boston MA area home.

I came to accept Jesus as my savior at the age of fifteen, though I did not fully understand at that time what it meant to be HIS disciple; I was saved, not sanctified. For years I lived life ‘my way’, pushing God away. One day I realized just how messy my life had become; surrounded in sin. I was tired of trying to ‘do life” on my own.  Knowing that I could not continue living as I was, I cried out to God. I may have been pushing him away, but he had never left me. Immediately he stepped in and began the process of healing. For the first time in my Christian walk 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 I now have a sweet relationship with my heavenly father. 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, then you are a NEW CREATION!

I pray that women will stop wandering in the wilderness as I did for so many years. That is not God’s plan for us, just like it was not his plan for the Israelites 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. 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!
