A Proverbs 31 Woman


Becoming a Proverbs 31 woman isn't about being perfect.

It's about living life with purpose.

A virtuous woman finds freedom from perfection and

the confidence to live her life with purpose.

A Virtuous Woman

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

Proverbs 31: 10-12


I'm only a SERVANT

Be Encouraged

We all need to be inspired at some point in our lives. I understand your pain, sweat and tears. Hang in there. Only those that has experienced being in our shoes can understand. Things will get better; therefore, do not beat yourself up.  Don’t give up, you can do this. Take a few deep breaths and continue on. You were chosen for the task and that makes you qualified.

There is no perfect person and we all learn as we go along. Give yourself credit that you are still standing in the mist of all that you have or are going through. I believe in you. I salute you!


Those that are in my inner-circle knows how I feel about PEACE. There is nothing like having peace. When you have been in an environment where peace did not exist and you are blessed to get peace, you become a different person. 

I characterize peace as floating on air without any distractions. It feels so good; therefore, once you experience it, you NEVER want to let go.

Expect Change

"You Get What You Picture"

Open Mind

Keep an open-mind because you do not know who will play a role in your success.

Remember, some people get on the bus and some people get off the bus and that is ok.

Learn to adjust to change and always look for the good in yourself and others.

There is a reason for everything, we will learn it in due season.

Inspirational passages

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Jeremiah 29:11

Daily Dose

One of the simplest ways to stay happy is letting go of the things that makes you sad.

Set Yourself Free

I found that when one is willing to forgive themselves, they then can be set FREE and not focus on judging others!      

Be Encouraged

Be encouraged if you support others during their storms and yet, they are no where to be found while you are going through your storms. 

I am grateful for those that are in my inner-circle.  

You know who you are. I thank God for you all and I speak blessings upon you and your families. 

Proverbs 18:24

One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.



There is a difference from thinking you are better than someone and


One must understand the importance

 & power that is giving when we encourage others while experiencing difficult times ourselves.



              Ask Yourself!

  • What is your PURPOSE?

  • Are you walking in your PURPOSE?

PURPOSE - Means the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists.

Focus On Being POSITIVE

Surround yourself around positive people and people that have "your" best interest at hand. If you are always the person that is pouring out and never receiving, please examine yourself.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about such things.

             Philippians 4:8                                                                       

What About You?

Take Care of You?


 It is not selfish to think about yourself.  I would always say to others "if you do not take care of you, no one will"; HOWEVER, I was not doing it myself, because I did not know how.  

You see, I've been a mother since I was a teenager so my entire life was caring about another person beside myself.  

With God, my husband and  our children. I am learning  how to put myself in line also. 

I learned that people will pull on you and drain you dry IF you allow them. 

I found myself in the Emergency Room several times due to being run-down and who was always there?

My husband William.





Remember, we sometimes BIRTH SUCCESS THROUGH PAIN!

When some people come in contact with me on a "personal" level they say the following to me:


"Wow, you are nothing like what people say about you. You are a wonderful person to be around".

I have heard this in church also; however, those exact words I used as fuel to accomplish the mission God has assigned me and this is why I have had the opportunity to touch thousands of lives  all over the years.

  • Always get to know a person for yourself before passing judgment. They may end of being your best friend.

  • Get fact and not make decisions about a person off of gossip or assumptions.

  • When people do not want to look in the mirror and deal with themselves/family, it's easy to judge others.

  • Never go down the evil road with them and miss your blessings. 

  • Pray for them, be there for them if they need anything, and keep it moving.


I've learned over the years of the power of accepting people for who they are and not what I want them to be.  People act and re-act differently based on their up-bring, experiences, and surroundings.

It is OK.....  



Some people you have helped, will disappear when you need them and that is ok.

When some  people think you are doing well, they will want to jump on board; however, if they think or know things are not going well for you, they are no where to be found.

These are the one's you do not need in your life. LET THEM GO!

Holding grudges only hurt you and not the other person.

This may be in God's plans.  You may re-connect with them in due season so DO NOT  hold a grudge.




My response is "Yes, I am difficult to deal with when it comes to messy, backbiters, liars and deceivers" and I will never play in Satan playpen. because God expects more out of me. (When you learn better, you do better):

29. Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30. Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31. Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32. Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

                        Romans 1:29-32                                                                                                 

Do not be a witness against your neighbor without cause, And do not deceive with your lips.                                                                         Proverbs 24:28                                                                     

But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.

                          Matthew 5:44                                                                                                                   

Remember when you are BIRTHING something:



However, the world will eventually see the ending results.



If you are being attacked by the enemy "DO NOT GIVE UP".  Keep doing what God has called you to do.  You will INSPIRE more people when they see that you are focus and refuse to GIVE UP.

There were times in my life when I did not think I could overcome some of my trials; however, I had to continue encouraging myself during the most difficult times with family, work, school, church and health.

I must say the journey was not easy BUT it was worth it, because it made me the strong person that I am today.

It seems like there is not enough time in a day to accomplish our daily tasks; however, if you want to live a long healthy life, now is the time to start working  on SELF.

Overcoming abusive relationships

Overcoming Fibromyalgia

Overcome being a people pleaser

 Learning how to deal with tragedies regarding friends or love ones



Rather than sitting and looking at my situation, I saw myself coming out of it.

Some of the most difficult time in my life was when I lost five of my loved one's in a house fire in our family home. I had one day to get from MS to NY to handle the arrangements. A few months before the incident, I had lost my brother-in-law who was killed in a car wreck and my aunt died from cancer.

Between my husband and me we have lost close to 30 loved ones.


I do believe that everything happens for a reason regardless of how painful the situation may be at the time. It was always my desire to encourage the next person regardless of what state I was in, because I found myself feeling better. You never know what a person may be going through, this is why it is so important to smile, give someone a hug, visit or take them out to dinner or lunch.



 Our daily schedule leaves little time to do things that will help us feel better and live a purpose driving life.

My challenge for this season is to help you:

  • Find Peace (the best space you can encounter)

  • Learn to forgive (yourself & others)

  • Find your GIFT (you have at least one; however, some have many)

  • Walk in your GIFT (stand strong and do not allow the spirit of fear to stop you)

  • Take out time to meditate, exercise and relax (search inside yourself and learn more about you)

  • Strengthen your relationships (we must learn the power of building each other-up)

  • Make better food choices (this is my struggle - we all have one if we are honest)


There will be times when we will list the dates, city and state of the speaking engagements; however, we will not post pictures of events unless there is a request to do so. Some people do not want to be made public, some people are hurting and they are trying to heal in their own way, or some people are just private and we will respect their decisions. 

Hope to be in a town near you soon!

Pray for us as we be obedient/orderly and we will do the same for you.

Be Blessed,
