A few years ago God gave me a name that I would not understand the magnitude of until last year. On August 17, 2016 (If I’m not mistaken), I embarked on a journey that God had been nudging me to begin for so long. On this day Daughters of Virtue came in to existence. Since then I have struggled, cried, succeeded, failed, been angry with God, been obedient, been disobedient, and above all grown as a woman of God. It’s been such a long row to hoe for me with no prior, formal spiritual leadership and counsel to speak of. God has beat me over the head, but no more than I’ve beat myself over the head and he’s also sent me awesome spiritual counsel that I have been so blessed to have in my life. I thank him for every woman in my group and pray that we continue to grow leaps and bounds in the kingdom.
The mission/goal: To become and be women of God. We shall grow as Titus 2 and Proverbs 31 women while also striving to be the complete women that God called us to be without worldly compromise. We exude the likeness of true women of God by carrying ourselves in a manner that’s truly honorable and pleasing to God. We will love one another as God called us to love, respect one another in agreement and disagreement, and be there for our growing sisters in Christ.
*The group is safe haven an open forum for sisters in Christ to be able to have open and transparent conversation about the ups and downs of our walks with God.
“Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.”Titus 2:3-5
“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.
She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
Strength and honor are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”Proverbs 31:10-31
A note from the leader:
As the leader of this group, please know that I love you all dearly whether I met you today or two years ago. I will continue to do everything that I know how to lead you all and to keep us all within sound doctrine with my teachings. Know that I try to be as lenient with everyone as possible but I am VERY adamant about keeping biblical order. That being said, please know that any time I correct you I am not trying to “hurt your feelings,” “come for you/at you,” etc..
2 Timothy 3:16-17
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
“Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.”
*Know that even I myself will be judged and greatly held accountable for how I lead you. Please just do your best to trust me as I have to trust God to lead me throughout this process.
