A woman of faith and unquenchable zeal...
Charmaine's is employed as a dental hygienist and has raised two adult boys, who are also active in the church. Her life experience has equipped her to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and compassionate toward people. She seeks to be in alignment with the will of God in every respect and endeavors to help others experience and have a growing relationship with God.
Charmaine is also one of the most creative and gifted people I know, kind hearted, humorous and able to think deeply about the scripture. Her vision for what the Women's Fellowship can be is something I pray every woman would embrace.

1 Peter 3:3-4
“Don’t be concerned about the outward beauty that depends on fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should be known for the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God.” (NLT)
Have you ever heard a sermon on the Proverbs 31 Woman, and felt the pressure of meeting that standard. Have you left the service feeling depressed instead of encouraged, thinking - I'm not that super woman. Your not alone. But there is hope, because the bible also tells us of the many ordinary women that God used in extraordinary ways, so don't limit your God giving potential, pray that by the power of the Holy Spirit you will pursue the standard that God has set for His glory.
Read: Proverbs 31:10-31
If this is a picture of a godly woman; which part is God not able to empower you to achieve? Why do we struggle with the best that God wants for us?
“And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever. The LORD will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace”. Exodus 14:13-14
There are three parts to being properly aligned, first know your position, second move into your position and third guard your position. This article will touch only on knowing your position.
The scripture is from the well-known story of the Exodus, and we can learn so much from that single chapter; but one thing becomes clear we will not enter the promised land if we are out of alignment with the will of God.
The Lord wants us to be with him in the end, he said that he is “going to prepare a place for us so that where he is there we will be also”, I hear the Lord reminding me even now as I write that where I am there you may be also, He wants to be close to me, He wants to be close to you, He desires intimacy with us; but how do we get to be where he is?
When the battles of life are raging and the enemy seems to have us cornered, God is fighting for us just as He did when the children of Israel were fleeing Egypt. God is holding our peace, we just need to know him, and know our position in Christ.
Reading his word is the primary way to know your position in the Lord, staying consistently connected with other Christians, especially those who are growing and grounded in God’s Word, is vital for your own personal journey. God will often communicate His will and wisdom to us through other followers of Christ. I can’t even begin to count the times God has used another Christian to get a message through to my heart.
If I forget who he is and turn my eyes from his face, I will no longer be in line with his promises or his plan if I forget who I am to him, and forget his promises and forget to support my relationship with my creator with daily prayer and supplication; if I forget to tune up my gifts, and allow the enemy to take an active role in my day to day activities and if I believe the lies of the enemy then I will not inherit the promises that my God in heaven has for me. I choose to remain humble and teachable so I can hear God’s direction, so I will not veer off track, crash and burn.
Keeping in touch with the Lord on a daily basis moment by moment, forgiving one another, loving one another, will keep us in alignment with the Lord "thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven"; in heaven everything is in perfect alignment, so we pray that on earth in our lives, in our church, in our community, in our children, in our leaders, that we seek that alignment, that God’s will be done.

The Power of a Praying Woman
While the scripture places a high premium on male leadership; history has been paved with the prayers of godly women. It is probably safe to say that if it were not for the prayers of those mothers and grandmothers, the disintegration of the family would be far worse and the frayed fabric of society would be completely undone. When you fight for your marriages and the salvation of your children, you'll begin to recognize that the battle is truly won on your knees. Prayer is a force to be reckoned with.
