A new phase...



doing something new
Okay ladies, I would love for you all to join me in a new phase of my blog! Starting Monday, May 6th , “Prowess and Pearls” will be launching its new weekly series entitled, “Michell’s Weekly Pearl”, where you can ask me ANYTHING!  If you’ve got a question on relationships, family matters, women’s issues, parenting, marriage, homemaking, etc., and you want an honest, biblical, to the point answer, please email me! Just to give you a little background on myself. I’ve been married for over 24 years to my husband, a pastor. I’ve worked alongside him in ministry full-time for over 17 years and during that time, established a women’s ministry(Women of Excellence). We have three adult children and a son-in-law.  I specialize in family, marriage and women’s issues. Hopefully the (Godly)wisdom I’ve learned through
my years of experience will lead you to and keep you on the road to doing you well!  I don't profess to be an expert, as I am constantly learning, but, what I have learned...I'm willing to share. As my husband always says...why spend your life going down a road you don't have to travel, when someone else has already learned the lesson and can show you how to avoid that path. Here’s how it works! You email me your questions via my email address prowessandpearls@gmail.com and I’ll post them(along with an answer), on my blog anonymously! Simple as that! Come on, email me those questions, so we can get the conversation started! I'm so excited to have you join me on this new journey! In the meantime, I'll leave you with a post I wrote when I first started blogging, entitled "The Balancing Act". Hope you enjoy it!

Why does it always seem as if we as women are the only creatures on this earth who have to learn the fine art of…walking that thin line of trying to get it right, but not going overboard? For some of us, the most used word in our vocabulary is “UGGHHH”! The late Mrs. Margaret Hicks said it best when she said, “In this day we are more challenged than ever before to be godly women who are strong, but not overbearing; wise, but not arrogant; courageous, but not insolent; confident, but not defiant”. Some of you may say…” that’s easier said than done”, but it CAN be done; IF you do it God’s way! ;-)) When we try our best to do the right thing, but get told, that in fact it wasn’t the right thing at all; this can be such a BIG let down! I have learned to use these moments – THANK GOD they’re not as many as before - as learning tools in my life. Instead of letting them break me(which makes matters worse), I find out what wisdom I can get from them – learn and move on - WITHOUT condemning myself(which by the way, is the most important part). You will find, while reading my posts, there’s no secret formula or magic potion, BUT it is going to be our reliance on and trust in the Holy Spirit to lead us and guide us in EVERYTHING we do, which will allow us to come close to getting it right. ;-)) Yes, we will find that we can’t and won’t get it right, IF we operate outside of Him. Ladies, we’re living in a day and time where our reliance on our “OWN” wisdom will NO longer cut it, we MUST TOTALLY depend on Jesus! As God’s Girls, we’re learning how to balance our lives like a fine oiled machine, because we totally rely on HIS wisdom and trust in Him, and not ourselves! Trust me…it makes life SO much easier! Proverbs 3:7a; 13-18, James 1:5

  3. YES! Great idea! It's wonderful that you've chosen yet another way to minister and sow Godly wisdom in the the lives of so many. 24 years of marriage (to a pastor), ministry, adult children? I'm excited to see what's in store.
