I recently had my first public appearance for “Virtuous by Veronica” at the EmpowerHer CA expo in Elk Grove, California, and it was such an amazing experience! It was a women’s empowerment event focused on uniting women in business and bringing awareness to the endeavors they are pursuing. Amazing things happen when we support each other.  There were everything from hair stylists, to singers, dancers, makeup artists, reporters, motivational speakers, travel agents and more. This event was for anyone of all ages who wanted to show support for us ladies.

I was there as a vendor promoting “Virtuous by Veronica” & VBV merchandise. I knew going in that this expo was not particularly a religious event, however, women in business from all different backgrounds were invited & encouraged to come out. There’s beauty in unity & the best way to reach a soul is to display love & kindness regardless of different individual beliefs. As a woman of faith I think it’s important that we don’t always “preach to the choir”, but that we get out there & spread the news of God’s love in areas where some may not know. I noticed at this expo that there were so many people who had never heard of the virtuous woman before so it was an honor to be able to bring awareness to the type of woman God designed for us to be. And it was appreciated. I was overwhelmed with the amount of support received from all of the women at this expo and I can’t wait for the next one. Ladies were purchasing “virtuous” tees and I got a bunch of new subscribers! All credit to God. What a blessing it was.

New subscribers!

I’m not going to say that I wasn’t a little nervous before attending because I was. In the beginning. It was my first public appearance and I didn’t know how people would receive it. When it came down to it though, God gave me this vision and whether or not people support or think I’m qualified enough to carry it out, I’m going to continue doing what he told me to do. My faith has been greater than my fears and for that reason I know God will continually bless me.

Journey to Virtuous

When we think of the virtuous woman, we often think about the perfect woman. The woman who has made no mistakes and has her life completely together. We think of the sought after woman of the bible who is praised all throughout Proverbs: 31. “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.”

But what about her journey to get there? And the battles she goes through to stay in a place of virtue? Especially in today’s society; Where unmarried sex is glorified, and fashion’s new motto could potentially be “the less clothes the better.” In a world where the main stream proposes that our bodies really aren’t temples, and that we should see casual sex as liberation rather than a bold divider between us and our earthly and heavenly inheritance–how does a woman achieve a title of virtuous? Sometimes the journey holds just as much significance as the accomplishment.

My mission for the Virtuous by Veronica brand is to provide motivation for woman to overcome all of the temptations to conform to the ways of this new world. From our lifestyles to what we wear. We can live out our dreams and look good doing it. All that while still living in God’s divine will over our lives. Although the now minority, the virtuous woman is still a light of this world, and through community, we can inspire each other to get and stay in a place a virtue.
