Woman of Worth

I have some really exciting news! I will be creating craft projects and writing an article to go with to be featured in Woman of Worth magazine which is published four times a year! The article will include photos and instructions for completing each project. I have enjoyed perusing their web site and being encouraged in my journey toward being a Proverbs 31 woman!

As I was praying about this opportunity, God brought this idea to my mind: to walk through Proverbs 31 and create a project that reflects the idea or thoughts presented in each verse or series of verses.

I don't know about you, but I love Proverbs 31! And, I am excited to be on this journey of crafting a project to reflect the values presented here - I want to bring these values more into my home and life so what better way than by expressing my creativity to do so!

I'm not exactly sure when the first article will be featured, but will keep you posted ~ here is a photo of the first project (click to enlarge) and I'll update with directions and download after it has been printed.

I want to say one thing right up front ~ God is the one who has given me these gifts and is the one who inspires these projects. I want Him to receive the glory for this and use these projects for furthering His Kingdom and writing His word on our hearts! I am excited and humbled to be available to Him in this way.

Hope you'll see a project you want to make and that it will encourage you to become more like Him!

How exciting Monica! Wonderful craft! I really like the worn look of the frame. God has indeed given you a wonderful talent and I am happy that you will be able to use it to inspire us and to spread His word!

I have never heard of the Woman of Worth magazine and look forward to checking it out.

CONGRATULATIONS, Monica! I am so proud of you and I adore all of your mad crafting skills. You have been such a source of inspiration to me- although my crafting is pretty poor :)

Carrie said...

Awesome! Congrats! I love that picture of the "worth" project. Can't wait to get started.
God bless :)

Oh, I can't wait to read this and see your projects! I have never seen this magazine before...I think I need to order it! Thanks for pointing us in that direction. It is very common for churches to have "ladies' meetings" here in Peru and they always do a craft. I can see this as a neat theme for a year...do a Proverbs 31 Bible study with them and have crafts to go with it! Fun, fun! Thanks!
