You know, that kind of person that simply motivates you to be a better, bolder and more authentic version of yourself.
Back then God had called me to the marketplace, but I was terrified. And, while I was silently skulking in the shadows of not-ever-being-good-enough, suddenly, she appeared!
I had read about her many times, but this time God showed me who she really was:
- A successful entrepreneur.
- A money-savvy businesswoman.
- AND an accomplished woman, mother and wife.
Everything I wanted to be, but was so scared to step into back then!
Maybe you have already guessed: She is the Virtuous Woman from the 31st Chapter of The Book of Proverbs!
She is the epitome of God’s idea for us women, reflected in a Scripture that is more than 2,500 years old!
AND surprisingly different to the stereotypes we have been molded into for the past hundreds and thousands of years.
Since then the Proverbs 31 woman has been my inspiration for true womanhood. I tried to paraphrase everything God showed me through her in my new book, “The Sleeping Queen”.
(Which is already available for purchase at this link).
This is one of the comments I have received:
Your list of attributes of the Proverbs 31 woman (The Virtuous Woman) is remarkable all by itself. That should be a poster on the wall in every Christian household, especially the ones with daughters. Just remarkable!
Sooo…I decided to write down my paraphrased version of the Virtuous Woman, in form of a Business Manifesto, so she could also inspire you and help you see the greatness God has put in you…and fully embrace it for your business and life!
The Sleeping Queen’s Business Manifesto
For the Entrepreneurial Woman of Faith
Based on the Proverbs 31 Woman
P.S. Feel free to share Sleeping Queen’s Business Manifesto with any other woman you might feel would be blessed by it.
Let’s encourage one another to start seeing ourselves as the woman queens God created us to be!
