Where Spiritual Women Grow in Business, Entrepreneurialism and Leadership
The Lydia Leader Project is a ministry that helps women lead in entrepreneurialism and business with a spiritual heart. The Lydia Leader Project is based on the powerful woman named Lydia in the bible.
Lydia, who was an Asiatic, derived her name from the country on the borders of which her native city, Thyatira, was situated. She was a devout woman who worshipped God. While she wasn't a Christian, Lydia had a hunger for a deeper spiritual experience. She was eventually baptized and was converted to the Christian faith. Because of her conversion, she told her household and those in her circle and they were converted! Lydia became a woman after God's own heart.
Lydia possessed the following attributes that's important for women to have:
1. Lydia was a hospitable woman: She had a welcoming spirit and opened her home and heart to others so they too could learn about Christ. (1 Timothy 5:10; Hebrews 13:2; 1 Peter 4:9)
2. Lydia was a consecrated woman: The word consecrate means that you declare something as being sacred. Lydia treated herself and her home as a consecrated temple of God. Her home was used for worship and she presented herself as a living sacrifice to God with her reasonable service. (Romans 12:11)
3. Not Slothful in Business: Lydia took pride in being a consummate professional. She was known in the land as a woman who sold purple dyes and garments, which was considered extremely honorable and notable . As her business grew, she extended her growth to providing assistance in order to advance the kingdom of God. Lydia had no problem being a cheerful giver.
The Lydia Leader Project is a ministry that will help women build relationships, expand their territories, and learn how to use the primary tools that Lydia used to be successful in every area of life.
