Planning from the Heart

Planning from the Heart

Proverbs 31 was written as a beautiful Hebrew acrostic poem to celebrate valor, strength, and dignity in women. It’s not meant to be taken absolutely literally in that every woman in the world should spin flax and sell real estate; but it is meant to show us how we, as women, can walk out daily life, serve those around us, be diligent, be industrious, and, most importantly, do it all with the right heart.

The Resourceful Woman

The Resourceful Woman

It’s so easy to rush and cut corners and do as little as possible, but this is a life calling we have as women to diligently work to create an environment of nourishment for our families and for those around us—nourishment that includes spirit, soul and body.

Willing Workers

Willing Workers

We are workers! The question is, are we willing workers? Do we delight, as the Scripture says, in the work of our hands? Jesus said that the kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy. Do we approach the work of our hands with peace and joy knowing that we are demonstrating the kingdom of God and his righteousness with the work of our hands when we do so with delight in Him?

A Trusted Woman

A Trusted Woman

Trustworthiness isn’t something that can be possessed in degrees. “I’m mostly trustworthy” is an oxymoron. Trustworthiness is a result of one’s commitment to godly principles like speaking truth, living honorably, owning your mistakes, being a woman of integrity and dependability, and walking in spiritual maturity.

Valuable & Virtuous

Valuable & Virtuous

Proverbs 31 verse 10 begins with the question, “Who can find a virtuous wife?” The rhetorical question implies that a woman of this caliber of character is not easy to find. In our flesh, we are not programmed for virtue, and our temptation is to take the easy path, doing what pleases us in the moment. That’s what makes a woman of excellence such a rarity; it is in her choice and practice of virtue that she sets herself apart from the average woman. Thankfully, this comes through the grace and empowerment of Jesus. As New Testament believers, we can look at this through the lens of the equipping of the Holy Spirit in us daily.

Divine Order

Divine Order

The Word of God encourages us to walk in obedience and be subject to our husbands in everything because as we do this, we come back into alignment with God’s divine order for us. In this divine order, we become beneficiaries of our husband’s covering, protection, care, and leadership.

Being Kind & Good

Being Kind & Good

As Women of the Home, the call to be “good” and “kind” is a vital call to heed. In our culture, we have lost a solid understanding of what these words really mean. They have been watered down to refer to that which is desirable to, approved of or a benefit to man – so the rule of standard fluctuates based entirely upon the whims of another person and their preferences. But God’s call to be good and kind are based solely upon His unchanging character.

Being A Homemaker

Being A Homemaker

In our culture, we fight against the idea that women can do anything men can do. In some ways, being a “homemaker” in our culture takes a back seat while trying to pursue a man’s career. However, according to Scripture, women and men have equal value but different roles. We are not made the same. That’s why we work so well together! According to this passage, women are called to be managers of their own homes, and loving toward their husbands and children. This is not a woman’s-only place, but it is a vital part of our role as women. We are made to care, to nurture, and to bring beauty that refreshes and nourishes.

Being Women of Purity

Being Women of Purity

We are called to be women of purity! Purity is freedom from anything that would contaminate or pollute. In this culture, there are many things that can seep into the soil of our hearts on a daily basis. So how can we get pure and stay pure? For years I strived for purity in my own strength, but I was full of mixture. It was not until I submitted fully to Jesus and His sacrifice for me that I realized there was nothing I could do in and of myself to attain the purity He desired for me.
