Real Life Wisdom Hunter: Ivette

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Name: Ivette Alegria Diaz

Hometown: Covina, CA

Occupation: Teacher-in-residence to six amazing cousins.

One sentence that describes you: I’m a vivacious, strong, compassionate and sentimental woman who is overwhelmed by the Lord’s goodness in her life and is passionate about living out biblical Truth and Love to see lives restored and God glorified.

One fun/interesting fact about you: I’ve been to jail…One of my former jobs required going to the L.A. County jails to help prepare incarcerated women to transition to life outside. I treasured my time with them and have many interesting jail stories to share now.

How long have you been a wisdom hunter (passionate follower of Christ)? I gave my life to Christ as a child and have been growing in grace and in wisdom since then. The longer I experience the Lord’s goodness the more in love with Him I am.

What wisdom have you been learning from scripture lately? To truly trust Him and do good without giving up when I do not see the results because He is faithful to complete the work that desperately needs to be done in my life and in the lives of those I love so dearly and He alone is able to touch hearts of stone and turn them into flesh. It’s a lesson I have to learn again and again. (Ps. 37; Gal. 6:9; Phil 1:6; Ez. 11:19).

Wisdom Hunters is based on Proverbs 13:20, what is the most impactful word of wisdom you have received from a fellow wisdom hunter? I was recently told, “As Christians we are called to tell the truth about the character of God in the way that we live and relate to others.” May our lives ever resound with the truth about the holiness and beauty of our Savior.

Any tips for new wisdom hunters? Do not run from accountability. Seek out wise, godly relationships and mentors who will lovingly call you out and speak hopeful truth into your life.

We’ve got to ask…why are you a fan of Wisdom Hunters blog and Facebook fan page? Because it is a voice of encouragement on the journey toward Christlikeness. It offers nuggets of biblical truth to keep my mind focused on the Lord and the redemptive power of His Word.

Any last piece of wisdom you want to share with your fellow wisdom hunters? Lean not on your own understanding, but in all your ways acknowledge HIM (Prov. 3:5-6) by allowing the Word of God to have the final authority in your life, no matter how uncomfortable or unpopular. The LORD will always honor and bless a heart that trusts and obeys Him.
