I feel funny writing this, because as off the chain as I can be at times, people don’t realize that I do strive daily to be a better woman and servant. It’s hard when you have people provoke you, you allow yourself to be stressed and fazed, or you feel overwhelmed. It’s easier to go crazy, to snap, and to lose sight of why you’re here in the first place. However, lately I’m finding that my only sense of peace comes from knowing that I diligently pursued happiness by any means necessary. I’m only content when I believe in my heart that I pleased my Creator in some way by being the best person I could be to the people around me. I keep saying that I’m not perfect; I do have my “ratchet” ways at times, please don’t make me mad. Lol. Nevertheless, growth and progress comes from knowing that as you go all-out to be a better woman on a daily basis, similar to exercise, you will see that “ratchetness” occur in your life less often. I think that’s all God wants anyway, for us to at least try, not judge, but try to be better people individually. So, while we attempt to improve our own lives, hopefully people can be inspired by that and make every effort in their own lives as well.
What is a Proverbs 31 Woman?
Over the years, I’ve heard a lot in church, from my parents, from my mentors, and other ministry leaders about the Proverbs 31 Woman. So after doing some research and studying the BIBLE, I found the Proverbs 31 Woman very interesting to say the least.
Interesting enough, a Proverbs 31 woman is no wimp. I would consider her a “DIVA” :). She is a super woman. She represents a role model that any family woman should strive to emulate.
It is also interesting to know that the book of Proverbs is a book of wisdom. We learn how to handle our family, money, and how to work.

Now which one of you wouldn’t want to be this type of woman?
Exactly! I’m working on trying to inspire myself and other women to be more of an example for other women. People will get angry and say we’re stuck up and bourgeois (bougey) but we know whom we are. Inspiration can come in all forms, so as people talk crazy about for living as if we are worth more and we’re blessed, they’ll eventually start to conform and see that blessings are coming our way. Therefore, they will begin to convert in the Proverbs 31 type of woman as well.
