The Proverbial Woman



I don't know how you feel about Proverbs 31, but it's always been an inspiring scripture passage to me.  I don't pretend to actually BE The Proverbial Woman, but I think that she represents what I can strive for as a godly woman.

Lately, however, I have felt like I've been really falling short of serving my husband and kiddos in the way that I should.  I don't mean by "serving" that I should be slaving away daylight to dusk, but truly making our house a home and giving my all emotionally.  I have felt behind on everything house-wise and very short on patience lately, to just be honest.  I need some serious time-management therapy--even when and especially when our schedule is totally crazy.

Because of all of these thoughts floating around in my head recently, I was thrilled when I saw the new summer Bible study that Good Morning Girls and Women Living Well is hosting: The Proverbs 31 Woman, One Virtue at a Time.  It's going to be for 14 weeks--all through the summer--and will go through the the chapter one virtue at a time. I am excited about digging deeper into this passage!

It's not too late to jump on board either, if you're interested.  Just click those links above and it'll take you to all of the info you need to join in.

I would also encourage you to talk some girlfriends into doing this study with you.  Having that accountability will make all the difference!  I know that I've tried doing an online study before and failed miserably in keeping up.  This time, however, I have gathered together a group of friends who are participating along with me.  We're going to hold each other accountable and encourage each other throughout this study.  I know it will make all the difference.

I feel the same exact way lately and feel as though life has been so busy that I haven't really spent quality time with my family lately.

I also love the GMG studies, I did the winter one this year and it was the first time in my life when I consistently read the Bible for 12 wks straight. But then when the study ended, so did I and I didn't read or have quiet time for a couple weeks. So I am SO happy the study is back and I'm recommitted and ready to start fresh! It's going to be a great summer!!

Thanks for sharing this! Our ladies bible just ended for the summer so I am going to try to participate in this. I also let them know I found them through you. Well I guess I need to go so I can get studying! :)

"I am excited about digging deeper into this passage!" Me, too. Now that I've made peace with the woman. ;)
