I remember when I chose the title for this blog. I was looking specifically for a name that inspired me. Proverbs 31 had always inspired me, so hence the name I chose. The virtues of the Proverbs 31 woman are virtues I try to apply to my own life. Not to achieve perfection, not for “bragging rights”, not for salvation. I desire those virtues in order to be a better wife, a better mother, and a better light to this world.
I know that many wives and women see the Proverbs 31 Woman as this perfect, unachievable, goal setting paragon of virtue. And what do we do when we see something we cannot reach? Most of us will turn away. Only the dreamers will keep trying.
But what if we broke that chapter down? Instead of seeing perfection at it’s greatest, we break it down so we can see the individual character traits that are praise worthy.
When you break things down into small parts, stuff starts to make sense; and that is what a group of wonderful ladies and I did recently. We took Proverbs 31, verses 10-31, and assigned a character trait to each verse. Suddenly instead seeing the perfect impossible, we could see places where each one of us was actually being a proverbs 31 woman!
Those verses have been turned into an e-book for you! We took each verse, and wrote down what we felt to be learned from that particular passage. At the end of the the devotional, we wrote down a prayer and then a list of goals to try and accomplish that reflected the virtue we had just studied.
The result became a 28 day study guide on the Virtues of the Proverbs 31 Woman.
Virtues of the Proverbs 31 Woman. Character traits we covered:
Fears the Lord
As well, we created a number of beautiful printables, and a study guide/worksheet that you can print out to use along side the book. One of the printables is an 8×10 print of Proverbs 31:10-31. Two others are pictured below. As well, there is a character trait card for each day that can be printed and laminated to form a little booklet with each of the verses.
Our prayer is that you will be blessed and encouraged by this book, and that you will come to a new understanding of your own virtues and how to bless your family with them. As well, we hope that it will inspire you to nurture virtues that are not your strong points so you may grow in the Lord.
Our e-book is available at $3.99 for an easy download found here. Even if you do not have a kindle or an e-reader, these files can be easily read on your laptop.
