We are committed to seeing women firmly planted in the Lord Jesus Christ so they can display His Womens-Logosplendor to their world.

Mission: Build mature followers of Jesus through her Church and home.
Vision: Transform her heart… Transform her home… Transform her world

“… to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.” 
Isaiah 61:3
