Find friends of strong character and moral integrity. Spend time with women who are truth-seekers, who walk humbly and love mercy. These are the friends who will challenge you and encourage you in godly wisdom.

From the day we are born our days are numbered and knowing that, living with a careful understanding of that, is living wisely. (Psalm 90:12)
Maybe it comes after we are an adult or when we become a mother. Maybe when we turn 50? Maybe it’s comes after our children leave home and or when we become grandmothers.
But we are instructed to seek wisdom right where are. Today. That we may be women filled up to overflowing, seasoning those around us and igniting our world with the wisdom of Truth.
