Happy Woman’s Day 2023

Mother Teresa said:  “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”  Women are such powerful beings, we were created for a higher purpose, and when you finally realize your worth in Christ, you will be unstoppable.

Whether you believe this to be true or not, we as women have a major impact on society every day of our lives.  By fulfilling our roles as godly employers, employees, mothers, wives, friends, sisters and daughters, we are changing generations and creating many ripples.

A woman sets the atmosphere in her home, yes, we are this powerful! The first thing I can do as a homemaker who wishes to bring glory and honor to God, is to set the atmosphere in the home. As a homemaker I have the ability to make our home in a way that either steers my family closer to God or tears them away.

Powerful women uplift each other and fixes each other’s crowns. Let’s start treating each other as sisters and look out for each other.  Instead of judging each other, let’s find ways in which we can support one another.  We all have an opportunity to help someone else.  Let this be our life long motto.

Support our Mercy Bags project, dedicated to every woman who has been affected by gender based violence.  Bring hope to someone who is still stuck in an abusive relationship, or support someone who has taken the brave step to stand up for themselves and leave a toxic marriage / relationship.  Handbags can be filled with toiletries, and will be handed out to Houses of Safety by Care Protect Invest SA.  We salute all women, especially those who have had it hard, and still continues to do what’s best for their children and families. We see you, we value you.

Bags of Mercy Initiative

South Africa has one of the highest rates of violence against women (GBV). The Bags of Mercy Initiative mobilises women to become an invisible friend to an abused woman by gifting a handbag – old or new – filled with things that can make her rediscover her self-worth.

Abuse against women usually takes place behind closed doors:
Hard words where no-one else can hear.
Blows where no-one can see it.
