Proverbs 31:24 says, “She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchants.” This verse in Proverbs 31 depicts the enterprising nature of the virtuous woman.

In our make-believe world, we were going to live […]

Proverbs 31:15 says, “She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.” As I mentioned in a previous article, I was challenged by a friend to read Proverbs 31 every day for a period of time. During that time, as I read, I would […]

Proverbs 31:14 “She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.” While our family was stationed in South Korea for two years, I met an older Korean woman who was just as curious about our American family as I was about the Korean culture. She knew enough English for us to be […]
