Proverbs 31 Woman Bible Study – Day 14 Overview
Let Your Husband and Children PRAISE You!
I love these two verses!
Here we have a husband and children pouring out praise and adoration for the Proverbs 31 Woman and all the great things she’s done for her family.
It’s interesting because there is no mention of her specific character traits, like diligence in her work, resourcefulness with all she had, giving to those in need, enterprising, speaking wisdom – none of it. It simply says that many women have done well, but she excelled all of them!
In their eyes, no one else could compare to her. What a lasting impact she left on her family!
Wouldn’t it be wonderful for your husband and family to say the same thing about you? There are so many women who have done wonderful things, but YOU excel all of them! There is no comparison to you!
I want my family to speak of this about me. I want it for you, too!
Create A Living Legacy
Here’s a loaded question for you. . .
What legacy do you want to leave for your children and husband?
Consider the message you want them to carry and tell of you and your life.
As your children are speaking about you, when you are not in their presence or they are adults, think about the message you want them to have about you.
The message they’ll tell their friends.
The message they’ll tell their teachers.
The message they’ll tell their roomates.
The message they’ll tell their future spouse.
The message they’ll tell their children.
What message do you want that to be?
Same is true for your husband. What is the message you desire your husband to say about you?
To his coworkers?
As you ponder on this, take the time to jot down the message you want said about you, while you are yet alive.
List all of them.
Then, evaluate where you are on this list.
See where you’ve accomplished greatness.
See where you need to grow.
See where you need to keep going.
Then get to work!
Work On You More Than You Work On Others
This is a really important idea for us to discuss.
Work on you more than you work on others.
It’s so easy for us to get caught up in what the next wife, mom, and woman aren’t doing.
It’s so easy for us to criticize another woman’s life and her choices (especially when we don’t know the full story.)
It’s so easy for us to see all of the flaws, corrections, and mistakes in others.
It’s so easy for us to know what another person needs to do to make their life better.
But what about us?
Do we take the same time and level of intensity to evaluate our lives and work on the areas necessary to grow?
I want to challenge you to make a decision to point less fingers and give less criticism to the lives of others. Instead, focus wholeheartedly on growing, pruning, and maturing in your own life.
After all, isn’t this the essence of Matthew 7:1-6? It’s not that we can judge or evaluate others’ lives. It’s that we should only do so, once we’ve addressed that same area in our own life.
Plus, like we learned in yesterday’s lesson, we really should spend more time working on our own lives to the glory of God, than focusing on others.
Because at the end of the day, we want our husband, children, family, and friends to rise up and call us blessed! We want them to have words of praise and adoration for the kind of woman we’ve become and the kind of life we’ve lived before God.
Promise me you’ll commit to becoming the best wife, mom, sister, friend, woman you can be![clickToTweet tweet=”Your Living Legacy matters just as much as the one you’ll leave behind after you’re gone. #p31″ quote=”Your Living Legacy matters just as much as the one you’ll leave behind after you’re gone. #p31″]

I have enjoyed this scripture study. It has helped me become more aware of the kind of wife and mother I am and need to be. It has also given me a much better understanding of the proverbs 31 description of a godly wife. Thank you for putting this together. It’s been a blessing.
My pleasure, Christy! So glad you enjoyed it!

Tommorrow are last day
This has truly been a blessing to me. I have been a widow for 16 years with the favor of God over my life, and my children. It has been a long time being single and God had to work on me to become that proverb woman again for the husband he has for me in my new journey becoming a wife again. I have so much more understanding and wisdom as a virtuous woman now. Thank you for awakening me up again to be the Godly wife that my Father created me to be. I’m the same but at a different time in my life. God gets all the Glory and Thank you Angelica
Thank you Angelica for being a blessing to me. I’ve really enjoyed my morning start up, while listening to you. Embracing being a Proverbs 31 woman.
Totally blessed by this study! Has opened my eyes to areas I need to work on, and also proud of areas I excel in. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful Wisdom Angelica
Day 14 Study
Thank you Angelica for this amazing study! I am 51 years old & know that I will always be a work in progress & I love learning and this study has been a BLESSING to me! I have 2 grown sons 25 & 30 years old and pray for their future wives daily. I will also be sharing this study…and tell others what a great help it has been.
What is my legacy & what do I want my sons & husband to say about me? That I Love God & I am a believer, I Love them & tell them often, I am always present when they need me, that I pray for them, that I make them proud to have me as their mom/wife and that I love them dearly. Also that I was kind to others, generous & worked hard. I really mainly want my family, friends & others to know I love them and for them to feel loved.
What do I need to work on? …well I do need to work on “me” more, so that I can give more.
Looking fwd to day 15. Thank you & God Bless you❤
Mary Givens says
Thank you Angelica! This has been a great study and I am so glad I have been going through it. Yes! I want my husband and my children to speak highly of me when they are talking about me. I have three daughters and ten grandchildren. I have been the best mom and wife that I know how to be. I truly believe God has guided me every step of the way. But I do know there are things that I can do better and with His help I will get there. I believe, as I look over my life they will have good things to say about me. I know there are some things that I can do better and God will help me to do them. This study has opened my eyes to see that I am doing a lot of what the Proverbs 31 Woman is doing and I am very proud of that. Thank you again for your time and thought in doing this study.
Kellye Chambliss says
Thank you for this lesson! It really opened my eyes and my heart to focusing more on my life and what Id loke my living legacy to be. Im turning 50 in Feb and as I look back over my live I find that as my children were growing up they did call me blessed, now they are grown and living on thier own; Im wondering if they still feel the same? I can only hope they do. It sure causes me to look at my life and do a “heart check”. Thank you again for this lesson, its truly been a blessing!
I am absolutely completely loving this bible study. I am learning so much more about how to be the woman Christ wants me to be. Thanks for allowing God to use you in this way!
Vicki Nowak says
I got more out of these 15 days than you can imagine. And although I learned so much about this amazing woman, mostly I learned that she is me. But that I need to give myself grace. I need to stop being so hard on myself, and let the light of God shine through me. Thank you for this, it has been simply amazing!
Debret Harrison says
I love this Lessson! It is really important the kind of legacy we leave to our family. And it’s most important to the Kingdome Work!
Rhonda Kinsey says
I did not want to miss this opportunity to let you know how much of a blessing this study has been to me Pass by. This particular study on what your husband and children say about you, is the most importnat to me personally. I am truly grateful for the family God has blessed me with, and it is always important what they think and say about me. Your words have served as a comfort to my spirt and an encouragement to be the Best Me!
Blessings Im Christ
Stacie Johnson says
I would really like to be that woman . I know I have made grave mistakes and I pray that I have risen up from those mistakes to become the proverbs 31 woman. Keep me in your prayers.
This study lesson has shown me where I have slacked off. For example, my kids love when I put them to bed and stay 5 min with them. I stopped doing this over the past month for no reason other than laziness. Thank you for the reminder to jump back in and start doing it again. The living legacy I want to leave behind is to love and love unconditionally to love even when you don’t feel like it or feel it is deserved. I want my husband and kids, family and friends to say this about me. I also need to start working more on myself, building me up because I am mostly doing that for others including my family, friends rather than myself. I just love this study and have enjoyed every moment of it. Sad to see it ending.
Way to grow, Nakresha!
Day 14 I will work on me more than I will work on others. I want to grow in being the best wife and mother I can be. Thank you!
Maris Luker says
Thank you for this Bible Study and for sharing it. I have enjoyed your teaching, your joy! I am working on Day 14 and starting Day 15. I am thankful that we can work on these days at our own pace. And learning all of the different character traits that this woman had. I fall way short. But I am thankful that when we do fall or fail we can stand back up and brush our selves off and start again. Thank you again. God Bless you and your family!!
That’s a great attitude. I’m thankful for the ability to start again, too! I’m so glad you’ve enjoyed the study.
Mary Turner says
