July Proverbs

During the month of July, a group of girlfriends and I have been reading the book of Proverbs. It is such an encouraging read (duh Jana… it’s the bible). I’ve listed a verse from each chapter that stood out to me. I definitely could have written multiple verses in certain chapters, but God’s word has a message for each of us no matter what season we are in.

PROVERBS
