I Saw the Light. I Felt Loved. I Had Hope.

You’ve probably noticed that there’s been a theme in the last few weeks–giving/investing. The idea for the theme actually came from two places: the devotion I wrote, your comments, and an adorable woman I “randomly” met in the airport. (Make sure to read her awesome story next week!)

In the midst of all this, I want to share an opportunity to invest along with me. There’s an organization that has captivated my heart, it’s where I joyfully give my time, my talents, and my personal finances. It’s an organization that I can confidently say spends donations wisely and with integrity.


Here are my top 5 reasons that I love P31 and am passionate about investing there:

  1. Our calling is to eradicate biblical poverty. That’s a goal I long to help fulfill!
  2. Measured growth is an important part of our DNA. As you saw in the video, our First 5 app was downloaded for the millionth time, and our devotions are now distributed to over 900,000 people world-wide. Our team plans for growth.
  3. I deeply love and respect the people I work with and follow. How many of us can say that about our work place? What you see online in social media, blog posts, and our website? That’s the real deal. No joke. These women love Jesus and each other. We’re not perfect, but we’re fully committed to follow Jesus.
  4. I know that there are eternal returns coming. When I read the comments left by the women who read and participate in our content, I see lives being changed and drawn closer to Jesus. Beautiful!
  5. We believe in the power of a community. Before Thanksgiving, I got the blessing of participating in our Thank-A-Thon. Our team called over 500 donors, and I did a small percentage of those calls. I hope you got one! It was amazing to connect with the women who do ministry with us. That’s the way we see it. You don’t pay for us to do ministry. We’re in ministry together–straight up!

There’s nothing that shows what God is doing better than a story. Please click here and take a few minutes to watch a beautiful story of the difference our ministry is making. I’m delighted that you get to see up close what I see in Proverbs 31 Ministries.

I’m proud to invest with you!

    • Thanks so much, Ev! It’s wonderful to know that our hearts and ministries are joined in this Kingdom work!

  1. Thank you for reminding me why I support this ministry! It’s easy to forget when you are far away and I’m sure that’s just what the enemy wants…so to that, I stick out my tongue and blow a big raspberry in his face! I will continue to support for as long as He calls me to and pray for others to come along side us to grow His kingdom and share His love.

    • I absolutely relate, Donna. Sometimes I get bogged down in the “work” of ministry, but in writing this post, my heart swelled with even more love for P31 than before. Thank you for being part of the Proverbs 31 ministry team!

  2. Light- what a blessing from our heavenly father ! Even in creation darkness was a CHAOS to the creator.He had to create light in order to make His new world visible.Not only was God concerned about physical darkness BUT spiritual darkness is a far more greater CHAOS which eventually costed the life of God to rid off.So far Proverb 31 Ministries is giving the light of the Gospel not only to women but to the nations of the world.Keep on with that.By the way, Jesus said we are the LIGHT of this spiritually dark blue planet.

    • Beautiful truths, Ev!

      My love-list for P31 could have gone on and on, but you brought up something that I can’t miss. One of the projects that has made me incredibly proud of P31 is the commitment to international partnerships. That’s been a joy to be part of, and the First 5 app is in all but 6 countries of the world. God has given us amazing ways to shine His light into the nations. Praise Him!
