Last year this time I was a Jesus Girl. This year, I am a Kingdom Woman. I used to refer to myself as a Jesus girl because…well…I frankly, because I was a Jesus Girl. I believe in the power of Jesus Christ. I pray about Jesus, I think of him often. I teach my children about Jesus.
But this summer, I decided to upgrade myself. I became a Kingdom Woman. And being a Kingdom Woman means that I’ve grown up a bit. I take my love of Jesus Christ and I apply biblical principles to my life to the glory of God. Like the Proverbs 31 woman.
Stop hyperventilating. It’s not all that.
That lady was good. And she did do a lot. But we don’t need to compare ourselves to her because we will automatically freak out and say we can’t do it.
What she did do that we can do is embrace the season and the path of life that God currently has us in. If we do that to the best of our abilities and give 100 percent, then we’ve done it. We’ve become Kingdom Women.
My friend Chrystal and her father wrote a book entitled Kingdom Woman where they tell you more about becoming a Kingdom Woman and why it’s important. Chrystal’s dad is a well-known minister here in Dallas. He is a great teacher of the Bible. I think I’ve heard him say something to the effect that it’s our reference manual or rule book for life. Chrystal is a wife, a mom of 5, a homeschooler, and a meal planner. She does all of those things because the Lord guided her to.
In the book, Dr. Evans uses scripture and biblical teaching to tell us what the bible says about this Kingdom Woman and the kind of life we should lead as such. Chrystal compliments his teachings with her real-life practical knowledge and experiences with accepting her current season and doing what she should to embrace it. She talks about the good, the bad, and the literal dirty laundry in her house.
The Kingdom Woman movement has led me to a much better place in my own life as a woman, a mother, a friend, etc. If you follow me on social media, you may have seen me use hashtag Kingdom Woman a lot. I read the book at its launch and am still referencing it in my life daily. I think I may have said to some misbehaving tweens I know, “The worst thing I could have done to you right now is read the Kingdom Woman book. It inspires me to ALWAYS call you on the carpet and make sure you are accountable for all your actions.”
Even though they know Chrystal, they weren’t too pleased when I made that comment. Ahhh….they’ll get over it.
So here’s what I’ve got for you! Don’t you just love prizes?
