Colossians 1:9-10 is our 2017 prayer focus for you.
"Since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We pray that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way: Bearing fruit in every good work."
Bearing fruit can be a challenge in this weedy world! We believe each of you are God's Proverbs 31 woman in your unique family, ministry and world. During 2017, we'll look at snapshots of our Proverbs 31 mentor for encouragement to live fruitful lives worthy of the Lord.
