  1. Wow.. Thank you for posting this and allowing God to work through you. I’m 17 years old and God’s working me into the person He wants me to be and He’s let me know that Proverbs 31 is an important step I need to make.. I was reading through it but didn’t understand half of it so when I researched it and found you I was so relieved and this has been amazing.. I have all of your posts printed off so that I can keep reading through them in each step that I walk with God.. And if that isn’t ok with you then I’d be more than happy to ripe them up and throw them away to respect your wishes.
    Thank you again. God bless and I hope you have a great day!

    • Nellie, your comment is a joy to my heart. The Proverbs 31 woman is my own hero and role model. and the Lord put young women like you on my heart when He prompted me to do this blog.

      I encourage you not to simply take my word for it, but to be a good Berean, continuing to pray and seek the Lord’s truth. May He bless you richly as you grow into a godly, Proverbs 31 woman.
