October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and we had the opportunity to donate some tote bags to a wonderful organization, Lump to Laughter.
Lump to Laughter is a Christian organization that is dedicated to providing support to those diagnosed with breast cancer and helping them share their stories. It was started by two friends who diagnosed six weeks apart from each other and were walking the journey of breast cancer together. Their joint diagnoses convinced them that God wanted them to turn this trial into a triumph and they have done just that. They have created a beautiful space for community and encouragement along with providing emotional and monetary support. We love that they are helping women use this trial to grow fear into faith.
We were moved by their story and their mission and wanted to support their efforts. This led us to donate tote bags with the phrase, Eshet Chayil which means “women of valor” in Hebrew, referencing Proverbs 31. This passage is a blessing, celebrating womanhood, and how a woman of valor embodies perseverance and strength. We are celebrating these brave and strong women, who truly are women of valor.
How can you encourage the strong women in your life? What does being a woman of valor look like or feel like to you? We are all created to be this woman, and everyday we not only have the opportunity to be women of valor, but also the chance to love and encourage others. Let’s celebrate all the strong women in our lives by lifting each other up and encouraging them to be who God made them. Eshet Chayil!
