To all those spiritual mothers who've led us on the way. Those faithful souls who shared wisdom laced with integrity and joy. The ones who brought comfort to our sorrows big and small. The ones who've modeled for us what loving Jesus and serving God looked like. The musical ones who taught us to sing songs about Jesus that remain with us to this day. And the teachers who showed us how to tuck Bible verses deep into our hearts.
Mamas and grandmamas. Aunties and Sunday School teachers. Pioneer Girl leaders and music instructors. Camp counselors and youth group leaders. All you college professors and mentors and women's Bible study leaders. You know who you are.
And you Titus 2 women and pastors. Our spiritual directors and counselors, friends and coaches along the way.
You are our Proverbs 31 women, filled with beautiful valor and integrity, godliness and strength. We join hands and say, with tears in our eyes and hearts overflowing, that with everything in us, we 'thank God upon every remembrance of you ...'
