Aloha, Mel here💛 There are girlfriends that are family, who love you just the way you are. They shower you with prayer and encouragement. They are compassionate. They always check on you. Such closeness.. you talk with them every day.  And not only via text, you also talk on the phone. We meet up often, at least once a week. There is transparency, forgiveness and always good influence. We go through troubles together and always come out stronger and better.

We make time for each other just because we love one another wholeheartedly. We serve others together, care for the community.  We confess sin, cast out darkness.  We rebuke lies and speak truth and life.

Together.. We grow deeper with the Lord.  Miracles happen. There is healing and breakthrough. Dreams come true, dreams are planted. We increase our faith. We grow in our hope for the future.

There is such overwhelming joy when I think of my sisters in Christ.  Our bond can’t compare to anything else.   I honor them as God does. They are beautifully and fearfully made, Proverbs 31 women. They share a little of their hearts through these interviews. ~
