Seasoned Women

Thank you to all the “seasoned” women out there! You know who you are; you’re the ones who inspire other women, who lead by modeling what we younger women can strive to be, and who teach us with a gentle and virtuous heart how to be women of integrity and compassion.

My life is so much richer not only in knowing you but in having you journey with me in my life. Some of you have been part of my life for a long time; you were my teachers who taught me not only academic subjects but also how to grow as a teenager. Others of you have accompanied me through my university years and have helped me discover and begin to accept my God-given talents. And there are also some of you whom God has recently brought into my life to now guide me through womanhood.

I am so blessed to hear and receive your words of wisdom, to read your messages of hope, and to see your examples of love. It is a privilege and honour to call you as cherished and respected friends.

For all that you are- and have been- in my life, my pledge to you is the following:

I promise to live a life of integrity.
I promise to do all that I can to speak out on issues of injustice.
I promise to live a life where I am an example of love, patience, and kindness.
I promise to listen not only with my ears but also with my heart.
I promise to mentor and model in the same spirit that you have done so with me.
I promise to pass on the lessons I have learned from you to the next generation and the generations thereafter.
I promise to keep you in my prayers.
I will live my life under the shadows of God’s grace, as a woman of God filled with his promise of an eternal life.

Thank you beloved and seasoned women!


“Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.” (Titus 2:3-5)
