W.O.W.  (Women of Wisdom)






This scripture came to my mind as I begin to think of what I wanted to share; Romans 12:1-2
Saying as women of God we are to present our bodies as a living sacrifice unto God which is our reasonable service. The world can offer many thing that will take our minds away from the things of God, so be mindful how we present ourselves to the world. We are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds.  Allowing the word of God to transform our actions, thoughts and our deeds. God bless you all

First Lady Loretta Tyler is a wife, mother, grandmother and the First Lady of the Progressive Baptist Church of Modesto.  Lady Tyler has a very humble spirit and is always gracious and loving every time I have had the pleasure of being in her presence.  It is her hope that she can encourage someone along the way.  We are grateful for her words of wisdom and we thank her so much for sharing with us. ~Phyllis



“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson

This beautiful reminder was shared by a beautiful young lady, Tanea Waller.  I was blessed to have become acquainted with Tanea when I lived in Fresno and our friendship/sisterhood has only blossomed over time.  She is a young, single mom that has a heart for helping others. She is kind and she is faithful to the ministry. Tanea has a heart for the young girls 14-17 years of age. We have all made mistakes in life, but Tanea has a passion to reach out to the young girls in and out of church that she see’s traveling down roads that are familiar to her, but that lead to unfavorable results. Tanea, a true GraceFace that I adore. ~Phyllis
