About the Ministry

The inspiration for Lydia & Naomi, Inc. is the Book of Ruth and the Book of Acts. From these books of the Bible come four persons of character.  Add to Lydia and Naomi, Ruth and Boaz. Their profiles are included to give you an opportunity to take a look at what we saw as exemplary and sometimes even surprising.  I mean, how often do you see an ex-daughter-in-law stay around to help out an older woman who’s no longer her mother-in-law?  Or a wealthy man whose business leaving grain for the poor to pick up?  Or find an ex-mother-in-law helping her ex-daughter-in-law know how to present herself to a wealthy benefactor?  Some would say there was “hanky-panky” going on….but we don’t think so!

We believe you will find in these four profiles the Six Pillars of Character –Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship – that anchor the lives of people of integrity.  We believe so much so that we pulled from their profiles a “one word” descriptor of each person.

The “one word” descriptor serves a twofold purpose. It acknowledges our view and serves as a place of connection for those who want to gain another’s insight about a personal, professional or business decision or situation.

You will find a confidential login blog space called Ruth’s Heart to vent personal, relationship, family issues. This is a space where a facilitator…one who has experienced and overcome a variety of issues…will be there to help discussions stay on track and offer her/his insights when needed.   

So, you also will find Naomi’s Counsel for those who are beyond venting and know they want some seasoned, experienced direction from an “aged” woman or man able to follow your situation over a period of time…hoping to see it to a successful conclusion.  You will find Lydia’s Trust from current or former accomplished business women and men who can guide confidential blog discussions and provide personalized direction as an external mentor.  You will find a space for Boaz’s Benevolence, accomplished (if not wealthy) socially responsible businessmen who are ready to give back!

This ministry of Lydia & Naomi is here for you wherever you are in life!
