God had always surrounded me with Balcony Women growing up. I thought everyone lifted up and encouraged others. As an adult, I had an experience that opened my eyes and heart to the realization that not everyone is as fortunate. I began praying for God to introduce me to other Balcony Women and to help me teach women how they too could be Balcony Women. He placed in on my heart that I needed to join Him if I wanted to make my prayer a reality. I was happy to, but I was thinking small and willing to work in my own circle of influence. God was faithful in His promise, but He expected more of me then I realized when I agreed to join Him. As God’s vessel, He is working through me to create a women’s ministry that shows women how to live a life of purpose by following three key verses: Train a child in the way she should go… Proverbs 22:6 (Balcony Girls), Therefore encourage and lift others up… 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (Balcony Women), Religion God finds pure and faultless it to take care of His widows … James 1:27 (Balcony Women for Widows).
Our Balcony Women Board is comprised of women within our community who desire to lift up and encourage other women. Their devotion to this calling is evident in how they live their everyday lives.
We believe we are called to strengthen women of all ages and help them fulfill the purpose for which they were created. When we participate in helping another woman fulfill her God given purpose, all women succeed.
