About Modern Proverbs 31’ers
Growing up as a Pastor’s kid I always thought there was something missing from church. I felt there needed to be a place where we could learn about the Bible but also discuss how to apply it to our Practical & Spiritual lives. This led me to launching & lead a teen ministry at 22 years old. By 31, I launched speaking ministry where I traveled, spoke at conferences, and coached women in discovering their business & ministry purpose. Now, at closer to 40 than 30, Modern Proverbs 31’ers ministry is a combination of all my experience in Life, Leadership, and Business and where I can Mentor and Coach other women’s in the path our ABBA GOD destined for them.
About the Founder
As a young adult in my early 20’s, I saw success as having a job in a building with my own cubicle. In my own eyes, I didn’t have any hard skills such as accounting or coding or hair styling. People always told me that I had the Gift of Gab, which for me didn’t sound too promising, career wise. This was what launched me into success. After getting certified in office management I landed that office job. Soon after the CEO moved me to where I would shine: Sales & Marketing. I was made the face of the company and put in sales training where I learned my superpower was in Sales & Marketing!
I now advocate to empower all women to find their sweet spot in life and build their own platforms.
