The ministry of Proverbs 31 Lifestyles is committed to helping today’s woman serve God by being her best, in and out of the home. The mission statement of Proverbs 31 Lifestyles is as follows:
Empowering women by creating the serenity they need to reach their full potential through their faith in Jesus Christ, and contribute in their unique way, both in and out of the home. We use the model of Proverbs 31:10-31 to help a woman develop each area of her life. We also believe in charitable giving and will undertake various community projects at any given time.
I’m Shari Grenier… a Proverbs 31 woman, lifestyle blogger, Christian lifestyle coach, author, wife, mother, and forever-young grandmother! I am married to my high school sweetheart, Dave Grenier, and we live just east of Toronto, Canada. I feel equally at home in Toronto, New York or Paris.
I am an ordained priest with the Community Catholic Church of Canada. We are part of the “Old Catholic Church” that separated from Rome during the 1800s. So I like to say I’m “Catholic but not Roman.” In our church, each member of clergy has their own parish. Mine is St Helena of the True Cross. We have no building, because I use it as an opportunity to go out into the community. My main goal is to be a church for those who have no church, bringing Jesus to the homes of those who are unable to attend a more traditional church setting.

In addition, I plan and officiate weddings, certify and coach wedding planners through a separate division of Proverbs 31 Lifestyles, which is called Sandcastles Weddings
Proverbs 31 Lifestyles is not a registered charity or non-profit organization, and is self-supporting. To that end, we offer a collection of P31-related services, and clergical services such as funerals and baptisms. A portion from all revenue made through Proverbs 31 Lifestyles will be returned into the community though our ministry’s various projects. I go into more details on our structure on the FAQ page.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that all of my interests seem to fall in line with living our best Christian life and serving our families. Dave likes to tease me that I’m like Barbie — so many different professions — but I don’t think she has ever been a Reverend. So, Barbie, that makes us even, because I’ve never been an astronaut!
