I am talking about the virtuous woman in the Bible...the Proverbs 31 or P31 like some call her. I've always wanted to know what "she" looks like. When I dove into the word Proverbs 31 to be exact I was amazed at how well the Bible describes her. I've also wanted to focus on one thing at a time and really try to master it so little by little, I can look like her. Imagine if we could answer yes to all the questions above...what a beauty that would be! Many of us posses some and even alot of those qualities. Those we lack we should try to work hard at achieving and those we have but stumble upon from time to time we should try to keep permanently. God wants us to be christ like and as well as the Proverbs 31. Knowing that us women likes descriptive words He left us an amazing example of what we shoudl aim for. I encouragement you to join me in trying to work towards that goal! I guarantee you that you'll reap many blessings through your efforts with the biggest being more like God!
