Who is Shamira Gambrell?

Allow me to introduce Shamira Gambrell, Spiritual LifeStyle Coach.

I was married for ten years- got married young. It did not work out. He did a lot of things to cause the end of that relationship (that’s a story for another time). After my divorce I realized I too did a lot of things that contributed to the demise of that relationship…

I shrank so he could feel big…

I muted my voice so he could feel heard…

I dimmed my light so he could shine…

I lived beneath my privilege as a daughter of the King so he could feel like a king…

I lost myself and who I was so he could find himself and who he was…

I could go on, but I believe you get the picture. Can you relate? It may not be a spouse; it can be your behavior with anyone!

Now after doing that for so long, I was barely a shell of who I was meant to be. As a mother, those were not behaviors I wanted to pass on. Even if I was not a mother- you never know who is watching you!

I decided that I needed to get closer to God and work on myself. That is how 31 Modes Of A Virtuous Woman aka 31Modes was born!  As I did my “lifestyle work” I realized that I had models in the Bible. So, I went into Hannah mode and became a woman of prayer; I went into Esther mode and became a woman who not only took good care of herself but also recognized the power of fasting; I went into Proverbs 31 mode and organized my home, life, finances, etc.

As I did this “lifestyle work” I invited others to join me. That’s when I knew that God had given me something that wasn’t just for me but that would help women all over the world.

If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well.

Romans 12:7

(New Living Translation)

can tell you that the “lifestyle work” never stops. I continually work on myself utilizing Biblical principles and examples as the foundation. 31Modes has put me in a better place in this life!

I have built and continue to build my God Confidence. I learned and continue to practice the power of fasting. I use prayer as my mode of operation in life. I have developed a biblically based debt free program (which of course I used first lol). I learned the power of forgiveness and so many other things that I teach and share with others.

But the most important things that have come out of 31Modes is that I have deepened my relationship with God and continue to do so; and I have a MUCH better relationship with myself.

I believe that God uses everything and wastes nothing. He allowed these things in my life so I could come to recognize who I am and Whose I am (think prodigal son - Luke 15:11–32).

This lifestyle put me in a place to be God confident; be a woman of prayer and fasting; realize that ByFaith I can have what I desire and oh yeah- it allowed space for me to be “found” and become that “good thing” (Proverbs 18:22) to my friend and now husband- C. Thomas Gambrell!

31 Modes of a Virtuous Woman is a practical break down of the characteristics of a Proverbs 31 Woman. We focus on the development and everyday application of those characteristics in your life.  31 Modes of A Virtuous Woman is a lifestyle; it speaks to the different aspects of how you live your life *Spiritually *Financially *Emotionally *Physically *Intellectually etc.

She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.

Proverbs 31:25

(New Living Translation)
