This is the letter that I wrote, read and presented to the women of our congregation this morning following the presentation of, “What Does the Proverb 31 Woman Look Like Today?” I pray that it blesses those God leads to read it.

Greetings My Dear Sister,
I have written you this letter because the world is looking for and in great need of the woman that’s inside of you…because the woman that’s inside of you is not just any woman…No, she’s a virtuous woman. Now, you may be asking yourself, what does it mean to be a virtuous woman? Well, the word virtuous can be defined as “one having or showing high moral standard.” In other words, her greatest asset is not what she sits on but rather what she stands on. Her greatest power does not lie in what’s between her thighs but rather what’s between her eyes. Her worth is not found in what she wears or does not wear but rather her value is instead found in her virtue. She has a standard and she does not lower that standard to be accepted. She instead accepts her high standard and challenges those around her to raise their low standards. She’s the woman that every little girl should want to someday grow up to become. She’s the woman that every little boy should want to someday grow up to marry. The writer asked, “Who can find a virtuous woman?” You can…because today, she’s no longer confined to the 22 verses found in the 31st chapter of the book of Proverbs. She exists inside of you and she’s been artistically assembled, beautifully built and carefully crafted by God to come out of you. The question is…will you let her out?
Much Love & Many Blessings,
