I am so blessed to be studying “Stressed-Less Living” with all of you. I can honestly say that I don’t have a lot of stress since finding Proverbs 31 ministries a few years ago. I had a lot of stress then: my son was scheduled to go to Afghanistan, my daughter had graduated high school and was going to college 10 hours away, I had been moved to a different department and we felt led to leave our church home. Talk about stressed to the max!! I was the poster girl for it, and even went to the ER once with high blood pressure and unable to catch my breath (turned out to be anxiety related).
At first I just followed Melissa’s blog for 2 studies. Then I joined a facebook small group for a study. Now I am honored to be a facebook small group leader. I am so thankful to have found OBS because I had so missed the fellowship of other believers while my husband and I were “church shopping”; it was the first time in our 30 years of marriage that it took us over a year and a half to find a church home! This avenue of studying God’s Word with other ladies was just the prescription I needed from our Great Physician!!
I am blessed as I read Melissa’s blog. I am blessed by the authors who allow themselves to be used by the LORD to bring messages of hope and healing. I am blessed by the wonderful ladies who work in leadership and those who work behind the scenes at Proverbs 31 Ministries to provide these Bible studies on the Internet. I am blessed by all the prayers that are uplifted on behalf of so many hurting women and families. I am blessed by all the leaders of the facebook small groups who volunteer many hours. I am blessed by the awesome ladies in my facebook small group. I am blessed by every lady who posts on Melissa’s blog. I am blessed by EVERY single lady who participates in these studies!!
