Now Keep Reading!
I have found that many women get so overwhelmed with reading about this woman. They often question whether or not they can live up to these standards. (I know that’s how I used to feel.)
It can seem like an impossible standard to reach because she seems so perfect! After all, the Proverbs 31 Woman raises the bar of what we should aspire to be like.
I want to share this with you, though. . .
. . .it’s not about her deeds that makes her the epitome of womanhood, but it’s her character!
The Proverbs 31 Woman is a woman of noble, impeccable character.
In our Proverbs 31 Bible Study, we are going to dig deep into the characteristics of the Proverbs 31 Woman. We’ll be asking ourselves hard questions and evaluating where we stand and where we need to grow, as Proverbs 31 women.
The real question we should be asking ourselves is not how can I be like her, but how can I have the character of the Proverbs 31 Woman?
(That shifts things a bit doesn’t it?)
You see, character leads to deeds.
Good, Godly character will always lead to good, Godly deeds. And well, not so Godly character will eventually lead to not so Godly deeds.
This Proverbs 31 Bible Study will show you how to grow in your Godly character, this way they Godly deeds will just flow from your spirit.
Godly Character Starts In Our Hearts
So then where does good, Godly character begin? As a Proverbs 31 Woman, how can we cultivate it?
It starts in our hearts.
Proverbs 4:23 reminds us to guard (or keep) our hearts with all vigilance for out of it springs forth life.
That’s POWERFUL, ladies!!
That word “heart” is the Hebrew word “leb.”
Here’s what it means:
- seat of emotions and passions
- seat of appetites
- moral character
If you were to replace “heart” for one of these meanings, in the above scripture, I think you’ll see how important it is for us to take our guarding our hearts seriously. Our hearts encompass our emotions, passions, conscience, and CHARACTER. God wants us to guard our heart because He knows that’s where life happens.
The Proverbs 31 Woman maintains her noble character by guarding her heart because she understands that life flows from it.
As we journey together in this Proverbs 31 Bible Study, you will learn how to maintain your noble character through Christ and then you’ll be able to live fully in the characteristics of the Proverbs 31 Woman!
I hope you’re excited…I am!

I invite you to take a look!
A Mother Teaching Her Son
Another really interesting thing about the entire chapter of Proverbs 31 is at the very beginning, we are told this proverb is a teaching, which King Lemuel’s mother taught him.
How interesting is it that his mother would teach her son about the traits of a Godly woman and what to look for in a Proverbs 31 wife?!
Have you sat down and talked to your sons about the character traits of a Godly Proverbs 31 wife?
I wonder how many good, Godly Christian families have taught their sons what to look for in a Proverbs 31 wife so they can carry on their family’s teachings, faith, and legacy to a new generation of Believers?
We certainly have our work cut out for us, as mothers. But we can know this…if King Lemuel’s mother had the foresight to teach her son, then we have all the blueprint we need to teach our sons, too!
One final thing, as you are on this journey of studying the Proverbs 31 Woman. . .
. . . be open to how the Holy Spirit will move and speak to you about the Proverbs 31 woman character traits and how you can be molded by the hands of The Potter, after her.[clickToTweet tweet=”Proverbs 31 Woman isn’t about deeds, but CHARACTER!

In the meantime. . .
I take a counter-culture, deep-dive approach into the characteristics about this woman and how we can apply them to our lives. It’s not a beat-you-over-the-head-with-an-impossible-standard type of bible study, either.
It’s about liberating you, to know the truth of God’s Word, so you can live in the fullness of your calling and purpose.
It’s truly a deep-dive + life application bible study that will transform, comfort, and inspire you, as you walk and live as a Woman of Valor!
