March is recognized as Women’s History Month by many in the United States. In honor of this month’s theme, I’d like to recognize our amazing team at She Prayed. She Prayed is made up of bold, faithful, serving, loving, empowering, and inspiring women leaders. I cannot recognize our team without first recognizing our phenomenal leader, the Founder of She Prayed Ministry, and the woman behind the vision, Zuleika Guzman. What a powerhouse for the Kingdom of God! We are blessed to have a leader who serves from behind like a shepherd leading his flock, who uplifts and encourages while still holding us accountable, and whom invites us to hold her accountable as well. Zuleika’s passion and dedication to this ministry can be felt in the way she carries herself. Even greater is her passion and dedication to achieving our mission to inspire, heal, and empower women all over the world through the power of the Gospel. Zuleika pours into our team, always pushing us to be our best and represent the Kingdom of God righteously. Unafraid to cheer for us when we succeed or accomplish a noble achievement outside of She Prayed. She gives us the tools to be greater than the day before. She’s made it clear from the beginning that this is not her ministry, but instead it is God’s ministry. Her drive and burning desire to please God are infectious. She has helped each of us be more intentional about putting our relationship with God first and has encouraged us to prioritize our family life and to foster meaningful, positive relationships. Certainly, prayer and seeking clarity and an in-depth understanding in the Word of God are key tools for success in our ministry. Thankfully, Zuleika’s strength, wisdom, and leadership skills have played a central role in cultivating a spirit of sisterhood within our team that has proven invaluable as we continue to fight every day to be the best mothers, wives, fiancées, daughters, sisters, friends, and professionals we desire to be. Imagine a world where women lift one another up rather than tear one another down; where women pray for one another rather than judge and criticize one another; where women hold one another accountable in love rather than gossip about one another's flaws behind their backs; where women cheer each other on without comparing themselves to the other and being spiteful if “their time” has not yet come; where women are genuinely happy for their sister’s success rather than jealous of her progress; where women cry together, laugh together, heal together, serve together, study the Word together, and pray together. This is what we have been blessed with and equipped to develop at She Prayed Ministry and wish to share with women all over the world so that they too may be able to experience spiritual freedom and healing in pursuit of paying it forward and spreading the Good News. Sisters, I share this in hopes that it might motivate you to do the same in your own network of sisters to cultivate this atmosphere of love, accountability, inspiration, empowerment, and healing. We were designed with the natural instinct to be nurturers. Let us use this to nurture one another and birth the purpose within us, remembering that our gifts were never meant to be kept to ourselves, but instead to be used to bless others. This is her-story in the making! 1 John 2:9-11 (NIV) Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness. Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (NIV) Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. 1 John 4:20-21 (NIV) Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.
