Most women I know will run themselves to exhaustion before they’ll let a friend down.
- If you promise to make a meal for someone, you’ll whip up a feast for them while you eat PB&J.
- If you say you’ll babysit, you’ll rearrange your plans not to let your friend down.
- If you volunteer to help at church, you’ll be there.
Most women will stick it out to the bitter end when it’s something for a friend or loved one. We put others first, because that’s the right things to do.
But if you commit to something for yourself, say to eat healthier, write that book, or start a new hobby … now that’s easy to give up. If the pressure’s on or things get tough, promises to ourselves are easy to break.
Why is it so easy to quit on things for myself?
Why do I so often put myself last in the list of priorities?
That’s a question I want to explore, because I want to be a woman who doesn’t quit on myself when things get hard.
That’s why I’m going to join the Proverbs 31 Online Bible Study of my friend Nicki Koziarz’s new book, 5 Habits of a Woman Who Doesn’t Quit. And it starts today!!
Nicki goes through the book of Ruth, and pulls five principles we can use today to persevere in the things that matter most.

I’ll be praying for you!
