The Proverbs 31 Woman – Week 8

she brings him good not harm

  This week we are looking at verses 23, 24 & 25. Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land. She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies the merchants with sashes. She is clothed with strength and dignity: she can laugh at the days to come.   We’ve heard the saying, “Behind every great man is a great woman!” ……that saying is especially true for the husband of the Proverbs 31 woman!

P 31 15 she is up while it is dark

  Photo credit Welcome back to week 4 in our Proverbs 31 series! This week we are reading: Proverbs 31:15-16 She gets up while it is still dark; She provides food for her family And portions for her servant girls.

The 1950’s Wife vs.The Proverbs 31 Wife

  Pictured Above – my grandmother with 2 of her 3 boys and my mother   On the Rachael Ray Show I was dubbed a “1950’s Wife“. But my grandmother, a mother of 4, is the REAL 1950’s wife.  She is ALSO a Proverbs 31 woman.    Were all 1950’s wives Proverbs 31 wives?    No…the two terms are not equal.  I know that nostalgia makes us believe the old days were better but what distinguishes a 50’s wife from a Proverbs 31 one?  Her fear of God.      Grandma’s life was full and busy as she lovingly cared for her family.

Tuesday Morning Kylie Bisutti, former Victoria Secret Model, was in New York City on Fox and Friends doing this.  And Tuesday evening she was in Ohio at a Starbucks, doing this!!! Kylie graciously gave of her time, to share her story with me and my 2 friends – Diana and Clare (Peak 313).
