I met Lemon during a beta group coaching event and immediately admired her ability to break down the Gospel into small, understandable chunks. She inspired and opened my eyes to living a Proverbs 31 life helping me become a better Christian wife and mom.

1st. WOW!!!!!! 2nd. You had me at Biblical Femininity. 3rd. This was very thought-provoking and much needed to help me to ground myself with taking it all the way back to Genesis. I can appreciate this. There's os much here I would like to take a week and ponder and infuse the concepts into my daily thinking. I can't wait to move the next lesson. Lesson one was FIRE!!!

Charise Brunner

I admire how GOD works! I have been talking about Femininity a lot recently, and yesterday I invested in a Biblical Femininity course by Lemon Price 🎀 Finished the sessions today! It was amazing 👑 My favorite module was on friendships. Confirmation!
