Session 1: The Mind of a God Driven Woman


What does the Mind of a God Driven Woman look like?  Let breakdown some of the meanings:

GOD -  We must agree that God is who we get our instruction from.

John 11:25-26  25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

DRIVEN - God Bless a Woman with Ambition

Matthew 5:6 "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. 

WOMEN - A Christian Woman is a Differnt Kind of Woman

Proverbs 14:1  The wise woman builds her house, But the foolish tears it down with her own hands. 

When we think about what being a God Driven Woman means, we need to reference what God says in the Bible.  So we must 1st do our do diligence and understand the instruction book!  As we read through passages in the Bible and take steps forward in our walk of Faith, we learn that there is so much knowledge that God wants us to have.  When we seek that knowledge we can better understand it and then apply it appropriately to be confident in our Bible knowledge to ultimately share with others in fellowship.

It is VERY important we believe the information we are basing all of this knowledge from.  So as a God Driven Woman you will already believe that God is who he says he is, Jesus Christ died for our sins, was resurrected and the goal here on earth is to lead as many people to Jesus Christ as their Savior in order to take as many people to heaven as we can!

Also notice that I will refer to you as a God Driven Woman but the name of this project is God Driven Women.  God tells us we are not to live life on our own!  We should always surround ourselves with the healthy relationships God has designed for us.  This includes our Personal Relationship with God, Our Spiritual Relationship with our Spouse, Children and other Like-Minded Women!  So that ALL Relationships are covered....so it doesn't matter if you are married, have kids or are by yourself.  These relationships we talk about are for EVERYONE IN EVERY SITUATION.


  1. Get a journal or notebook you can specifically designate for GOD DRIVEN WOMEN
  2. Read Proverbs 3:5-6 and take your journey to God in prayer. 
  3. Watch the video on how God Driven Women got started.



Session 2: God’s Rules and Regulations for the God Driven Woman


What does it mean to be a Godly Woman?

SEEK GOD FIRST: Reject the lie that anything or anyone else can satisfy you. 

SPEAK FAITHFULLY: Love others with godly wisdom, boldness, and kindness as a faithful completer of others. 

SHOW TRUE BEAUTY: Bodies deteriorate; persons develop. Invest in that which lasts. 

STAY HUMBLE: Be constantly aware of pride and selfishness. Don’t think less of yourself but think of yourself less. 

SERVE THE LORD: Set your mind on eternal things, serve the eternal King, and live to please only Him. 

When we are chasing what God has set before us we are pleasing Him and he is SMILING down on us!   A WOMAN'S REACH SHOULD ALWAYS EXCEED HER GRASP! The prime example of DRIVEN!

Proverbs 31:10-31 God's instruction for women.  This is the goal, where we are always reaching towards. Being the Proverbs 31 woman.

So how is this even possible?  That may have worked back then when women didn't work and take on all these responsibilities! God has assured us the lesson's he teaches are valuable from the beginning to end of this life on earth.

God is using the HOLY SPIRIT to tug at your heart, your life and your mind. For us to be obedient we MUST listen!  For us to receive his Grace and Mercy we must equip ourselves with God's protection.  So the hardest part for you and I may just be giving up the control we feel we have to have in order to get through just one day! 


  1. Read over the scripture mentioned in this lesson.  Journal some ideas that God is putting on your heart to pursue becoming a God Driven Woman and what that looks like for you.
  2. Listen to Tara's testimony of experience that led her to becoming God Driven.  Journal key takeaways from the podcast.

Tara's Testimonial

Session 3: The God Driven Women Leadership Formula


  • Living With a Purpose

God's Relationship with us in on PURPOSE!  He has uniquely designed all of us for success!  No matter what God puts in your path is it all meant to guide you thru HIS plan for you.  Think of it as God up in Heaven putting the orange caution cones down to show you where His plans will be utilized for the Glory of His Kingdom!  In our lives we inadvertently run over the cones, sometimes miss the cones, and more times than not are willing to admit we ignore the cones completely?

  • Passion vs Purpose

Passion is what makes our hearts cheerful; it is in our Passion we find our Purpose!  Our purpose is ultimately becoming a God Driven Woman by obedience thru God's instruction manual (The Bible).  God's Purpose is laid on our hearts thru prayer and increasing knowledge in his Word. 

  • You Cannot Do It Alone

We were not meant to live life alone!  Whether we are single or married, have children or don't, we are all designed for fellowship.  Becoming God Driven Women means we impact others from a Biblical perspective.  We are to reflect Titus 2:3-5 to influence those around us.  We all have a story to tell, God tells us when we share what is in our hearts we find healing in fellowship and interaction with the Kingdom of God.  This also means we havn't figured it all out!  We learn AND teach one another in sharing God's grace and wisdom.

  • What If I Can't See My Purpose Yet?

First understand you cannot THINK your way into your purpose.  The more we act the clearer it becomes.  Second Passion doesn't come from your head, it comes from your heart!  Take the steps to do what you LOVE!  You will be inspired to have a purpose you may not have even thought of yet!  Embrace the journey and take a step back.  Your visual becomes bigger when your perspective is from the outside and not the middle!  It is also important NOT to focus on ONE thing.  We need to keep looking for those open doors and treat them like stepping stones.

  • Community Is Important I Get It, That Takes Time I Don't Have!

Do you pause before you take on something new? Well you should!  Not all of us do though.  We jump from one thing to another hoping to find joy in the next new thing only to find out we still have not found it yet!  One of the most important things I have done in my life was "make room" for an hour long Bible Study in my local church.  I cannot begin to tell you the dynamic change in my life that came from just one simple hour out of my day in God's word with other women.  LIFE CHANGING!

  • Faithful and Obedient Lifestyle

Just like anything you commit to changing in your life, you MUST be CONSISTENT!  You will not see results if you dabble in commitment.  So HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO YOU TO REVEIVE GOD'S BLESSINGS
