About the Pro 31 Women’s Compendium

Welcome to our blog site!

The Pro 31 Women’s Compendium consists of a group of 4 women who are going to blog together.  We will all write a blog on the same topic and publish it.  Our prayer is that it blesses you, encourages and edifies you.  We know you may laugh with us (or at us- whatever ), cry with us, agree with us or disagree with us. We are real women, walking out our Christian lives in this world, just like you, and we want to keep this real.

Let me introduce us in a nutshell:

I am Peggy Gilbert, a want-to-be writer, wife, mother and grand-mother (when did I get old?!  geez!).  My husband and I are founders and Pastors or Ruach Glory Ministries, which is primarily a ministry to network and coordinate churches and ministries in our region for corporate prayer efforts. I was a stay-at-home mom for a few years, but mostly I have had to work to keep the home fires burning. I loved to read Erma Bombeck  during the “raising of the children” years.  If you don’t know who she is, then look her up and read some of her stuff. You will laugh, and you will identify with her for sure!

I had an overwhelming urge to start this blog, and have invited 3 other women to be contributors to it.  I will tell you who they are, but I will leave it up to them to tell you more about themselves if they choose:

Ronda  is an author, strong woman of faith and I know you will be blown away by things that she writes!  You can also read her works at her personal blog: the Kelbey Chronicles on blogspot.

Barbara  is a friend who is someone for whom I have the utmost admiration and respect. She is one of the strongest prayer warriors I have ever known, and I believe that her writings will encourage and challenge us all as we take this blog journey together.

Andrea is a friend of mine for many years now, and is someone I consider a true overcomer!  She is one of the most intelligent and articulate women I have ever known, and I can’t wait to read her posts!

The way this blog is going to work is that I will choose a topic and give it to the other authors.  We will not collaborate on content, but will all write a blog on the same topic and post it on this site. We all have a different lifesong, and I believe that reading different perspectives in the same topic will be very interesting. Once we have our contributions together, I will put it out on the facebook so you all know there is something to read.  We hope you enjoy it, and that we can encourage you in your life.  I do have to warn you, though, that if you are looking for some “holier than thou, uptight church ladies”, you will not find it in us.  While, yes, we are all strong Christian women, we all also believe in telling it like it is and just being real.

Our first topic is “The Proverbs 31 Woman in 2014” and will be published in a few days. We welcome your comments and hope you enjoy!
