The Proverbs 31 Woman: One Virtue At A Time (E-Book)

The first book I finished for this new year is the free e-book, The Proverbs 31 Woman: One Virtue At A Time. The recommendation was to read one chapter a day. But I could not wait, I finished it in one day. It is an easy read at 43 pages.
The author Courtney is from Women Living Well Ministries. I found her excellent blog while blog hopping and I immediately added hers to my RSS reader.  What led me to her blog was the free e-book and the topic of Proverbs 31. 

I will never be tired of studying Proverbs 31:10-31. I have stated many times how I aspire to be one. Yes, that woman which Solomon wrote in Proverbs is not just a pigment of his imagination.

How exactly can women relate the verses to one's daily life as wife, mother and homemaker? According to Courtney, we can all be a Proverbs 31 woman if we:

  • Are a treasure to our husbands (v. 10)
  • Trusted by our husband in all aspects (v. 11)
  • Act - not just words and promises (v. 12)
  • Work with eager hands even with the mundane tasks (v. 13)
  • Find the best deals for the family and stretches the family budget (v. 14)
  • Rise up early and make sure the house is up and running (v. 15)
  • Make our her dreams happen (v. 16)
  • Keep our house clean and strong enough to do chores (v. 17)
  • Stay productive until evening (v. 18)
  • Works on mundane tasks or house chores without complaining (v. 19)
  • Help those in need (v. 20)
  • Prepare our families for each season in our lives (v. 21)
  • Dress with class (v. 22)
  • Support and speak highly of our husbands (v. 23)
  • Strive to excel in our craft (v. 24)
  • Exude confidence (v. 25)
  • Speak wise and kind words (v. 26)
  • Manage our household effectively (v. 27)
  • Make our family proud of us (v. 28)
  • Hear praises from the one person who matters most to us - our husbands (v. 29)
  • Value our faith more than superficial beauty (v. 30)
  • Have a happy family (v. 31)

I hope you are as enlightened and refreshed as me. Now, every time I have to tackle a house chore I least like, I think about the Proverbs 31 woman and I stop complaining and do the task willingly. When I am tempted to be idle, I remind myself there is more I could do. 

The Proverbs 31 Woman just raised the profile of stay-at-home wives and mothers. We all can become so much more than society is depicting us to be. 

If you want to read the e-book, you can get it for free by "liking" the Women Living Well page on Facebook. Click on the Free E-book button right below her photo. 

I had been blessed with this book and I want more women to be blessed as well.

Enjoy reading!
