The Ladies of Proverbs 31 have been Hot and Sizzling this July!!!

The ladies of Proverbs 31 have been busy this month! And we have enjoyed every minute of fun. We attended the 1st Annual White Party sponsored by Black Diamonds Book Club Distinguished Gentlemen on July 10th held at the Fort Shepherd Armory in Montgomery, AL. The ladies of Proverbs 31 showed up and showed out!(see picture: Left to right; Regina, Carolyn, Chelsa, Nicole, Alesha, and Jona) We had a wonderful time and truly enjoyed partaking in the all you could eat food and drink menu. We look forward to attending Black Diamonds Book Club's Annual Black and White Ball coming in January 2011. Look out for future updates for the date of this event!

Of course the fun didn't stop there! The Preacher's Kid was our movie selection for our movie night this month and we also celebrated member Regina's birthday. We had a wonderful time watching the movie and we ate waaaay too much of the delicious food that everyone brought. We started watching a second movie but were too tired and stuffed to complete it. I'm sure you can tell that we had a great time this night as well. Proverbs 31 favorite quote from the movie was, "I was platinum before you knew what a demo was!!!" Okay you'd have to have seen the movie to get it. LOL

And last night was our book club discussion of the book "The Ex-Files" by Victoria Christopher Murray. Keep an eye out for updates for a review of the book. All the ladies loved the book! This meeting was held at local restaurant Smoothies N Things, which is a small but cozy place with comfortable couches and great music. This spot was the perfect place for a book club meeting. We enjoyed the Happy Hour menu and the appetizer of choice for the ladies were the tasty chicken quesadillas and wings. Owner, Darian O. Clark, topped off our night by giving each member a slice of delicious cheesecake and for free!!! You should check out this great restaurant by checking out the link at We will definitely be back for another book discussion meeting.

As you can see the ladies of Proverbs 31 have been having a lot of fun and we're just getting started. We have community service projects coming up, in the process of planning fundraisers, and some giveaways. Please continue to stop by for future updates!!!! Don't forget to sign our guestbook! Have a fun and blessed weekend!!!

~ Peace & Blessings~

Think you can't work full-time and become a published author? Think again...

Yes, you can work full time and become a published author

Author Faye Thompson used her lunch hours at her day job to write her second novel.

Are you a novelist waiting to exhale? If so, it is time to make your passion a reality. Terry McMillan made it happen and so can you.

Meet Faye Thompson, a government employee for more than 25 years whose recent novel is being compared to Terry McMillan’s Disappearing Acts. Thompson’s second novel, Cheesecake and Teardrops (Urban Trade Paper, $12.95), was written during her lunch hour, vacation, weekend, after hours -- basically any time she wasn’t at her 9-to-5 job.
