Just in case you’ve ever gotten a sinking feeling of not quite measuring up at the mention of the Proverbs 31 woman in the Bible, I think I should quickly admit, me too.
When I helped start Proverbs 31 Ministries over twenty years ago, I had never read Proverbs chapter 31. A friend on our team thought of the name and I thought it sounded good.
A few months into this ministry adventure it dawned on me that maybe I should actually read these scriptures. And when I did, I felt I should resign.
I remember thinking this Proverbs 31 woman was perfect. She was someone who had it all together. It seemed like she actually enjoyed cooking and cleaning. She raised flawless children who never had outbursts. She never had issues with her friends. She stayed balanced with her finances. And she never had hormonal responses to the problems that came her way.
I honestly didn’t feel like I could measure up.
But I quickly came to realize it wasn’t her activity but rather the Proverbs 31 woman’s identity that mattered the most.
A Proverbs 31 woman is, at her core, someone who seeks the Lord in everything she does and trusts Him wholeheartedly with her life. The mission behind our ministry is to meet women right where they are in the real, hard places we all experience and to intersect God’s Word right there. Because we truly believe when we know the Truth and live the Truth, it changes everything. Our hearts. Our families. Our communities.
We also believe that, while many of us have physical access to the Bible, we are lacking personal access to the Bible. So, every day my team and I walk toward eradicating biblical poverty. Everything we do at Proverbs 31 Ministries is to equip you to open God’s Word with a sense of excitement and expectation instead of hesitation or confusion.
