Trying To Become Her: The Virtuous Woman

Many of you know me to be impatient, opinionated, very cautious, and perhaps a little overbearing at times. These are things that I struggle with on a daily basis. They are also things and I’m currently praying about pretty much on a daily basis.

I think back to the scriptures which often point out that Jesus doesn’t expect us to be perfect. He wants to see us continually trying to overcome our worldly side and helps others on their journey. People mature into different levels of Christianity. Some of us are still drinking milk, while others are eating whole chickens by now. In my mind I am now at the stage where I’m truly trying to be the Virtuous Woman found in Proverbs chapter 31.

The Virtuous Woman is a woman that does it all. She knows how to take care of her family, how to make wise financial decisions, and how to be a pillar for her community.

I think one of my biggest obstacles, in my opinion, is figuring out how she was able to organize everything. If you look at scripture The Virtuous Woman was organized in order to do all the things that she did throughout the day, throughout the week, and even with preparations for future events. I lack organization. In many ways I feel like the lack of organization creates chaos pockets within my household, and that’s one of the things I want to try to work on.

Of course I know I still need to work on my patience, judging, and my temper. Yet, part of me wonders if better organizational skills might help to eliminate the chance for impatient and temper flares. I’m talking about scheduling a healthy sleep schedule, dinner time, cleaning time and family bonding time. Currently we go to sleep anywhere from midnight to 2 a.m. and we eat dinner after 7 on most nights.

Simply put, I think we are all dealing with some sort of sleep deprivation. Even after we fall to sleep we awaken a couple hours later which kills us the morning after. It makes maneuvering through the rest of the day extremely difficult. So, planning is on the menu today. I think a better plan will give birth to a better us.

Take Notice Of Religion and Kids

Anytime Can Be Special Time

My family and I have been studying the Bible together for over four months now. We study with our children because we both believe religion is important.

Our Youngest Holding Her New Bible!!

We both were taught in church that Bibles were very important, but it was something we didn’t pay close attention to until a few weeks ago. We were reading one of the books of the Bible together and we noticed that our readings were a bit off.

Confused About The Matter!

We decided it was time to get the girls the same Bibles we were reading in order to cut down on confusion. I am sure everyone can identify to things they need to work on. If you are like my family, you have a bucket full of things. We are trying to work on faith, patience, temper and accountability.

After going over our Bible study I found that we missed a clear chance to talk about patience which was something we really needed. I am posting our studies to show that Christians aren’t prefect and that we all struggle with raising our children from time to time. In this clip, everything is going fine until My daughters find out about Lot’s daughters. I wanted to edit my daughter’s response out, but then I also wanted to be real. If God wanted us perfect, he wouldn’t have sent his only son to save us.
