I have seen a lot of contest going on for people to write about their “hero” and see if their story would win. Well, there is NO contest in which person is my hero. She is my mom! She is truly the most amazing, self-sacrificing woman I have ever met. She has been such an amazing example to me even as a little girl.
LOVE: Her LOVE for God is the first quality that you could never miss when you meet her. She has such a deep love for God and a commitment to the Word. She has never wavered knowing how much God loves her or how much she loves Him. She lives out the scripture.
SACRIFICIAL: She is willing to do whatever God calls her to do no matter what sacrifice it requires. I have seen her leave everything she loves twice in her life to follow the calling of God and to push and encourage the dreams of her husband. She has left family, houses, ministry and everything familiar to her; to launch a ministry in Beloit, WI and then to do it all over again in Phoenix, AZ. I have seen her sacrifice financially over and over to build the Kingdom of God. She has lived out the scripture.
SUBMISSIVE: She is a strong woman, anointed and powerful and yet knows that beautiful boundary of submission to her husband. If he say’s it, she will stand by him forever. You don’t dare come to her about her man, all 5’ 1” of her will go nose to nose with you to protect and honor him. She loves him with an amazing unconditional love. Will never see or hear her disrespect her husband with her words or actions, it is first instinct to honor and respect him. I know this comes from her LOVE for God and her ability to submit to the Holy Spirit in her life.
For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church,
his body, of which he is the Savior.
Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should
submit to their husbands in everything.
LOYAL: She is a loyal friend and she is my best friend. If you are in her life, no matter who you are or what status you are; she will ALWAYS protect you first. She will not let others talk about you to her; she will stop you dead in your tracks and say “you will not talk about them without them here too”. I love that about her.
MINISTRY: She has the most beautiful call of God on her life. She is rich with the word of God and full of wisdom! She is a woman that has lead the Proverbs 31 life, without question! I am blessed as her daughter to have been able to watch her, learn from her and model who I am today because of her. I would NEVER be who I am if it wasn’t for her!
but a woman who fears the Lord shall be praised"
I Love you mom, YOU are my hero!!
