When we initially thought about writing a blog together, we had a million ideas of what to write about, share, etc. However, upon further thought, the verses found in Proverbs 31 truly inspired us. We wanted to build a blog upon the truths found in the Bible about "The Virtuous Woman".
As Christians, our desire is to pattern our lives after the Proverbs 31 woman. The verses below expound upon how she was a creative, hardworking, ingenious, Godly, ambitious woman. The premise of our blog solely hinges on these verses. They are a wealth of knowledge and wisdom as to how to achieve the characteristics, crucial to becoming a woman whose "price is far above rubies". There is no higher calling than being exactly what the Lord would have you to be.
We're excited to introduce this collaboration of thoughts, recipes, ideas, tips, blessings, you name it! We hope and pray it will be an encouragement to whoever stops to take the time to read it.

10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.
12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.
13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.
14 She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.
17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.
18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.
19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.
20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.
22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.
29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.
30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.
