The Man Plan was inspired during my adult years of singlehood. Year after year, I devised and refined my vision for the perfect man. I wanted to stay focused, not waste my time and know exactly what I wanted. Those were my plans.
A man’s heart deviseth his way:
but the LORD directeth his steps.
Well, I never did get what I wanted (thank God) because I was too focused on the natural instead of the spiritual. When the Lord changed my confession from the natural to the spiritual, my strategy changed. I began to focus on the spiritual nature of the man I desired. The physical and material took a backseat to character, integrity and values. I was also committed to preparing myself to receive what I was asking for. A year after I refocused my journal writing to reflect the Lord’s desires for me, my husband came. He was everything I had written about and more. We married three months later, on my 50th birthday. We are celebrating 12 years of marriage as of 2022.
I pray this journal blesses you as you write the vision and make it plain. I believe that the Lord will hear your prayers and bring the perfect husband to you at the right time. Meanwhile, prepare your mind, your heart and your spirit to receive what you deserve because you are more valuable than rubies.

FOR MARRIED WOMEN
This journal can also be helpful to married women. If there are areas of your marriage that need improvement, write the vision and pray for your husband to align with God’s will for your life as a covenant couple. Pray God’s best for him. Visualize him being the man that you know he can be.
Likewise, ye wives,
be in subjection to your own
if any obey not the word,
they also may without the
word be won by the conversation
of the wives;While they behold
your chaste conversation
coupled with fear.
1 Peter 3:1-2
