31 Days

Join me on my adventure as I spend the next 31 days with the Proverbs 31 Woman.  I hope that the next 31 Days with the Proverbs 31 Woman will change your life! (And change mine!)

Depending on the day I'm having, I'll swing back and forth in my love/hate relationship of this Biblical character.

I hate this woman.

I love this woman.

When I consider the last chapter in the book of Proverbs, the incredible depth of my envy, awe, and guilt is staggering, but in the next breath, I find myself wanting to BE her. I respect this unnamed woman SO much, and yet she sets a standard that is impossible to imitate. Or is it?

Five years ago, just months after my marriage, I picked up this book: Beautiful in God's Eyes: The Treasures of the Proverbs 31 Woman. After chapter two, I literally threw the book across the room.

An impossible woman! Why is she even in the Bible? To make women feel bad about themselves?

But over the years, I have developed a hesitant, but growing interest in her. The verses tickly my mind, heart, and imagination. Waht would it be like to really set my heart on studying this woman? Would I grow in admiration? Would my life change? Would my marriage change?

I am NOT June Cleaver. I am not Martha Stewart. Hey, I'm not even Monica Geller Bing. (Just ask my husband, cleanliness is not my strength.)

But there has to be a reason the Proverbs 31 Woman is in the Bible, right?
And I'm determined to figure out why.
