The Proverbs 31 Guide for Stressed Out, Normal, Far from Perfect Moms

The Proverbs 31 Guide for Stressed Out, Normal, Far from Perfect Moms

Do you picture the Proverbs 31 wife as Martha Stewart in robe and veil? Do you wish you could do half of what this superwoman does? Have you given up trying? In this message, Sara offers a different perspective based on her year-long experiment studying this biblical woman so many say is our ideal but so many of us feel incapable of becoming. What DOES it look like to follow God in our day-to-day mom and wife life? And is perfection really required?

We’ll talk about what it looks like to be a woman of influence, and examine what the Bible says about the enormous influence we have, for better or for worse, in our families, with an emphasis on the influence we have and the potential difference we can make in our church and in our community when we seek to follow Christ as our example.

Women will be encouraged to:

  • Understand the most important lesson we miss when we talk about Proverbs 31 (and it has nothing to do with housework!)
  • Realize the influence God’s placed within you for your family, for better or worse, and learn three ways you can quickly become an influence for good.
  • Think about God’s purpose for your lives as wives and moms and women and develop your own set of Proverbs 31 traits (discussion/interaction opportunity)
Love His Way

Love HIS Way - Choosing What Changes Our Marriages & Families for the Better

All of us want happy marriages and happy kids - but for most of us, if we’re honest, we feel less happy than happy on any given day. We don’t always feel loved or appreciated. Sometimes we don’t feel... anything. But tired. And stressed. And overloaded from responsibilities we’ll start all over again with tomorrow.

In this message, Sara shares with women the lesson God’s taught her in what it means to love and be loved - and the choice she needed to make to see not only positive changes in her marriage and family, but positive changes in herself.

Women will be encouraged to:

  • Understand why most conflict in marriage and family starts and what minimizes it or completely prevents it
  • Discover the reason so many of us become disappointed in our spouses and why it may not be all his fault
  • Learn how to apply three words in your marriage that will change how you see your husband - and maybe even how your husband sees you
