A Proverbs 31 Woman is…
“A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than diamonds.” Proverbs 31:10.
No matter their background or current circumstances, our desire for all beneficiaries of 31 Bits is for them to grow into and be identified by the characteristics described in Proverbs 31. Women that are being taught and encouraged in certain skills, besides that of bead making, in hopes that they will become Godly leaders; initiating hope, peace, and change within their communities.
Throughout the next couple months, we will be highlighting individual women who portray these “Proverbs 31” characteristics in their day-to-day lives.
Proverbs 31:11 Her husband trusts her without reserve, and never has reason to regret it.
19-year-old Justine is a hard worker and a great asset to the 31 Bits team. Dependability and honesty are traits that she is known for around the compound. Although her parents passed away many years ago, she believes that she has learned many valuable lessons from them. She remembers her mother as always being honest and desires to take after her in that aspect. When asked why honesty is so important she replied, “lies are not good things, my father was a liar and a drunk and I will not become like him.” Even our design manager, when describing her, says that she cannot even tell a lie.
Justine has been married for two years and is very much enjoying life with her husband Douglas and 1-year-old son, Nikolas. Her husband is thankful for Justine’s job at 31 Bits and gives her the respect and trust she deserves.
Justine’s reputation of honesty and reliability are a testament to her faith in God and her endeavor to live more like Jesus. She is truly a trustworthy woman and a great example to other women both young and old.
