How Women Can Use Their God Given Talents to Start Their Own Business

Become a Better WomanEmerging Women Service | No comments

One thing every woman should understand before entering the work force is that she needs to love what she does. Having a job or career that does not inspire excitement in your soul will lead to an unfulfilled life. One of the ways that you can ensure that you are in love with what you do, is by taking something that you already love and turning it into a career.

Sewing – Crochet- Knitting

If you are the guest at the baby shower who is always giving the homemade blanket and booties that everyone is in awe of, you could make a career of it. Unique baby items are a hot ticket item, especially for the rich. Come up with some adorable designs, create a line and advertise online, and you will find yourself in charge of a growing baby wear business.

It is not unusual to find a caterer that is working out of their own kitchen. If you have a penchant for pleasing your family’s palate, or find friends are in a frenzy for your signature dishes, you could advertise catering services for small events. You already have all of the equipment needed right in your kitchen, so why not make some money off of that deep fryer you barely use that cost you more than a few bucks. Even with just a deep fryer you can quickly whip up finger foods and appetizers that people would love to buy.

Gardening

Whether flowers or veggies, what you have growing in your yard could equal money in the bank. You could grow plants to sell, or have a makeshift flower shop right in your garage. If your talent is with tomatoes and cucumbers, open a fresh farm stand right at your mailbox. People today are in constant search of all natural foods, and it doesn’t get any more natural than growing in your yard.

Jewelry

With a basic kit, you could design and make jewelry accessories that all women would love. This is an easy hobby to turn into a business, with plenty of retailers who could do the selling for you. Be unique and come up with signature designs to create your own line of fashion accessories.

Essential Oils

Essential oils are all the rage right now and you can bank on that if you have a penchant for growing the plants that they are derived from. You will need to learn how to extract the oils, but once you do, you can experiment, making your own fragrances to sell online or to brick and mortar retailers.

With all of the responsibilities a woman has already, it is a blessing to find a way to support your family with something you love that can be done from home. Think of the many passions you have, and how you can turn those into money making opportunities.

Characteristics of a Godly Woman

Emerging Women ServiceGodly WomenLife Principles | No comments

characteristics of a Godly woman

We all want to be a Godly woman who would give up everything in her life to serve the Lord instead. She would have some flaws too, but being imperfect lets her turn to God and seek His guidance. In Proverbs 31, the scripture has explained everything a woman could ever imagine to be. An amazing goal in life is not just to live a life of success, but to be a woman as exactly described in that  verse. Don’t you wish you have those characteristics, too? We will now know some of the characteristics of a Godly woman.

She reads the Bible and has a familiar sense of God’s word.

She tries to live up to the word of God in her actions, thoughts, and words. Having this kind of characteristic does not mean you blurb out scriptures to anybody to prove that you had memorized it or know about it. Instead, it is better to be a woman who has faith and pairs it with action.

She seeks God first and foremost.

A Godly woman knows that only God is the answer. She does not rely on other things aside from that, as she believes that God is superior and nothing is impossible through Him. As quoted from Matthew 6:33-34, “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

She knows her worth as she is made by God.

One of our favorite Proverbs 31 verses is this: “Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.” She knows that she does not need those expensive jewelry and designer clothes to make her know her worth. This is in a sense that a Godly woman knows that she is beautifully crafted by the Master and it is better to beautify the personality than the body which will eventually deteriorate with time.

She is selfless and thinks of others first.

She would rather serve others and the Lord than herself. She is generous of what she has because she thinks of herself less. She never holds back because she knows that God abundantly gives back everything she gave away. She knows that through a woman’s ministry, God is pleased with her.

She forgives easily.

A woman like this knows that everyone commits mistakes and deserves a chance of forgiveness. She knows that we were all unconditionally forgiven by God despite all our mistakes and shortcoming. Though it may hurt, she chose to forgive anyway because time heals every scar that was placed in her humble heart.

She knows that everything comes in perfect timing with God’s will.

She trusts in the Lord that everything happens for a reason. For that, she patiently waits for what may happen, as she knows that God only has the best things in store for her.
