My cowgirl warrior is a woman in the west who worked on cattle ranches. Women ran them while the men went to war or on long cattle drives. Wives and daughters of men who owned small ranches could not afford to hire men so they had to do the hard work. They needed to ride horses and be able to perform tasks what you and I would agree was a man’s job. Keep in mind, these women also planted their own gardens, hunted, cooked, sewed their own clothes and many of them gave birth on their own, then had to get up and stoke the fire and feed the children and teach school and about living a life trusting in God.
These women were strong and able to take on anything. They needed the hand of God, his direction and covering to able them to perform the necessary tasks of everyday life. Sometimes God was the only strength they had and they trusted in him, “It’s the cowgirl way”.
The Lord continued to birth His vision in me for hours, weeks and years. I would write and listen as he excited me with the thought of a ministry for women called “It’s the cowgirl way”. Just one problem…. I lived in the Bay Area of California and had no thoughts of moving to Montana. As the years progressed I wrote notes and heard him directing me to study women of the Bible who trusted in God with all there heart and soul.
Less then five years later, here I am living in Montana and He is racing through my head at all hours of the day and night feeding me about women and the need to minister his strength to them.
