This July, I got to work with a group of wonderful women in planning for and teaching in one of our church events for single women called Ladies’ Night. What a blast! Not only did I learn from their wisdom, their convictions, their life stories, but I believe our bonds were forged in an even greater way. I had so much fun talking, coming up with and exchanging ideas, laughing, and EATING (hahaha) with them. What an honor to be co-laboring with these women to teach, to encourage, to connect with the single ladies of our church. I’m so grateful that I am surrounded by women who are real — imperfect and humble enough to admit that they need God every second of their daily lives, just like everyone else. Women who are strong — not immune to huge trials but endure through them because they love & trust God and because they surround themselves with people who love God as well, who encourage, support and pray for them. Women who are secure — vulnerable but unafraid to stand for their convictions because they know who they truly are. Women who are wise — know much but also know that they don’t know everything. Women who are grateful — “old” christians but are still overwhelmed by God’s love for them and by how He is continually making them new.

As we teach, others learn. But as we teach, WE also learn. These women never claimed to be experts on womanhood, in honoring their families, on finances, on relationships. But they do claim, we do claim….we testify that God has worked miracles in our lives that are worth sharing to anybody who would listen. Kudos to these ladies who made a great impact on many lives for 2 consecutive Thursdays! Kudos to Ptr John and the leaders heading this event. Kudos to all the staff and volunteers who helped us. I honor YOU, my dear friends! 🙂
