Pretty Lady

posted on: 9.20.2011

Lady:  a polite name for a woman.
One of the promises the Lord has graciously given me is found in Proverbs 31:25. It's actually the ground this blog is rooted on. I became a lady the day He revealed to me what I was created for. It often happens that we ask "Who am I?" before asking "Whose am I?". If you don't know the designer, you won't understand the design. The design assigned to me, and many others, was the role of a woman. One I didn't get to choose but a gift from the Lord nonetheless. Elisabeth Elliot said, "In order to learn what it means to be a woman, we must start with the One who made her." A truth that sets us free. It's been 7 years since I've known Whose I am and through those 7 years I've also learned what I, as a lady, have been made for.

The Lord has given me a task to share with you what I've learned through those years, though there is still so much to learn! I recognize there is a big need for mentorship out there and God intends to use this as a vehicle of mentorship. I've invited some other godly ladies in for the ride to share their lessons too. I hope you enjoy the Lady Lessons Series.

This is for you, from God's heart to your lady heart. Prayer requests and questions will  welcome through my email & formspring. Do not hesitate to do so. I look forward to taking each request & question to the Lord (as my commitment to you) and responding with truth. The lessons learned will touch every aspect of a woman, from singleness to marriage, from being a daughter to being a servant int he house of God.
Let's walk the path together to become the woman God is calling us to be. That when the call is heard, Who can find a virtuous lady? (Prov. 31:10) God will look down and smile at us; the virtuous lady is a God-fearing woman (Prov. 31:30).

  2. me and a good sister were talking about this last night. As women who believe in marriage a lot of us often talk about marriage... Alot... Yes, I have and am guilty at times. But anyways she brought up the scripture about "who can find a virtuous woman" and we both just shut up. I thought about how much we must be seeking God fully to be content and dependent on Him only because otherwise we could end up married with a husband who stays on the roof because of the troublesome wives we are...

    but yeah. I got a bit off topic.

    Love the idea and new series. Your heart for the Lord is amazing.


    blessed I found you girl!

  10. Well hello Lovely! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog today! I would definitely have to agree that the best honeymoon location is in the Caribbean... which is also probably a biased opinion haha!

    Anyway, I think this is a brilliant idea! My husband and I just finished up youth pastoring at our church this past June, but last summer we did an entire series on "The Summer of Femininity"/"The Summer of Masculinity" for the boys and the girls. I love celebrating all that it means to be a woman (being lovely, fierce, gentle, kind, loyal, bold...) and all it means to be a man (warrior, poet, provider, gentle, peaceful, leader, full of integrity...). It was one of my favorite things we ever did as a youth group and I hope it helped guide the boys and girls into better understandings of who God made them to be and who He really is.

    It's so nice to bloggy "meet" you!
