10 Virtues of the Proverbs 31 Woman

10 Virtues of the Proverbs 31 Woman {FREE Printable} @ AVirtuousWoman.org

The Proverbs 31 Woman Today

Here at A Virtuous Woman, I want to encourage women to serve God in every aspect of their lives. Being a Proverbs 31 woman is not about being “perfect.” It’s about living life with purpose, diligence, forgiveness, and repentance.

Often women believe that Proverbs 31 doesn’t really apply to our modern lives. Here at A Virtuous Woman, we believe that God’s Word stands the test of time. I wrote the 10 Virtues of the Proverbs 31 Woman as the mission statement for A Virtuous Woman, but soon realized that it was more than a mission statement. The 10 Virtues of the Proverbs 31 Woman demonstrates how, as Christian women today, we can all be Proverbs 31 Women.

    Melissa thank you so much for this site, I am so glad I came across your site at my time of need. Me and my husband are going through some very trying time. We are both being pulled in so many directions and I have found myself looking at the man and not the God in the man. Which has caused me to fall from my up holding my Godly duties and dishonoring my husband . I to homeschool our children and work from home for myself as well as for my husband. I believe this site will be very helpful to me and my family.

    Thank You

    Hi Melissa,
    I too am a busy mom, 4 kids 7 years and under. My struggle is respecting my husband in my heart. He isn’t healthy, and I think a lot of it is a heart issue. I am left holding almost everything. The mothering and homemaker I can do, even handling the money. But, when I have to figure out how I can pay the bills because he didn’t make it into work again (most of the time due to health), spread my mama bird wings because he is being a mean old grouch or ask for help only to get the negative reaction I thought I would get… well it leaves me weary. I try hard to the woman God wants me to be – but do I have to relate so well to Hosea? Just wondering if you had thoughts on how to be the Proverbs 31 woman when the husband isn’t a Proverbs 31 man yet?

    Hi, I have a prayer group and would like to share this information to the group giving credit to you on the hand out and to your website. Would that be ok?
