Excellent Wife

Okay, so lately I have been convicted of studying more on how to be a better wife (I can hear the gasps – slight sarcasm there). While the Bible is ALWAYS the first place you should go I wanted a “guide” to help me pull together all the great verses and explain to my stubborn self some of the, hard to wrap my tiny head around, verses. I have read reviews on books, briefly skimmed some that were borrowed about being a good wife, and none really grabbed my attention until this one. She immediately got me when in the first chapter she said “Submissive!? Me, be a submission wife? With an angry yell, I picked up the Bible and threw it directly at my friends who had been witnessing to me.” Okay, if this lady can get it together surely there is hope for me. I am not going to recommend it until I completely finish it yet but it is jam packed with scripture and she isn’t preaching to me about how far from the Proverbs 31 woman I am she is guiding me in the right direction to getting to a comfortable place AS A Proverbs 31 woman. My favorite thing, so far, that she has said is “Many women have a desire to be the excellent wife of Proverbs 31 they just don’t think it is possible, at least not for them.” Yes!! Yes!!! That is what I needed. So remember my Proverbs 31 friends and Titus 2 sisters we can do all things through Christ, remember!

“Teach older women to be holy in the way they live. . . They should teach what is good. In that way they can teach younger women to love their husbands and children. They can teach younger women to be wise and pure, to take care of their homes, to be kind, and to obey their husbands. Then no one will be able to criticize the teaching God gave us.” Titus 2:3-5

I can't wait until you finish it so you can tell us what it's called! By the way, I ordered the book that you recommended from the library, the one about Teaching Children, Training Hearts??? Something like that. I can't wait until it gets here!
