“The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.”
Sisters, we have some encouragement for you! In the month of May in honor of Mother’s Day, we have wanted to share episodes to inspire and encourage women. The episodes for this and next week we will hear some of our favorite episodes from last year as Liz Curtis Higgs shares on the Wise Woman from her book, It’s Good to be Queen: Becoming as Bold, Gracious, and Wise as the Queen of Sheba. When we feel lacking in the roles we play in this life, we can remember as daughters of God that we can do all things through Christ and He will complete the work He has begun in us.
