Proverbs 31 (#6) - PRAYER and the Fear of God

In this episode, we are concluding our 6-week study through Proverbs 31, from a Mission-Minded Perspective. Our focus is PRAYER, and living with the Fear of God in our lives. "Charm is deceitful and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fear the Lord shall be praised.."  

Ladies, let's spend time with the Lord in PRAYER (drawing near in fellowship, because of the blood of Jesus, by grace and through faith), but let's also remember He is an Almighty, All-powerful GOD to be FEARED with Awe and Respect.

Proverbs 31 (#1) - A Mom's Advice (about alcohol and personal convictions))

In this episode, Ann Dunagan introduces the first, but lesser-known godly woman referred to in Proverbs 31: it's the MOTHER, who is giving strong council to her son, as he prepares to become a king.

As we begin this new 6-week series on Proverbs 31, we discuss the importance of teaching biblical and personal convictions to our children and teenagers and having a high standard of love and example as Mission-Minded Families.

As we study Proverbs 31:1-5, we consider the strong testimony of Missionary Hero and Olympic Gold Medalist, Eric Liddell (and his personal conviction about not running on Sunday), along with a personal conviction regarding drinking alcohol - including five good reasons for Mission-Minded Families to abstain.
