The Woman I Want To Be


Blogger Amy Bowman

A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than diamonds. Her husband trusts her without reserve, and never has reason to regret it. Never spiteful, she treats him generously all her life long.  

She senses the worth of her work, is in no hurry to call it quits for the day. 

She’s skilled in the crafts of home and hearth, diligent in homemaking. 

She’s quick to assist anyone in need, reaches out to help the poor. 

…..and she always faces tomorrow with a smile. 

When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say, and she always says it kindly. 

She keeps an eye on everyone in her household…

Her children respect and bless her; her husband joins in with words of praise: “Many women have done wonderful things, but you’ve outclassed them all!” 

Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades. The woman to be admired and praised is the woman who lives in the Fear-of- God. Give her everything she deserves! Festoon her life with praises! (Notes from Proverbs 31MSG)


I love this Proverb and it is the desire of my heart to be this woman.  Oh how often I fall short.  Thankful for grace, forgiveness, mercy and growth.

    I saw your pic on FB and came here. You look so amazing girly! I love your hair. I have never left a comment but I have been watching your blog for a few years, so I know what you have been through. I am so happy that you are doing great! I remember crying when you announced that you had cancer. I thought of your girls and the struggle you and your family will encounter. When I saw this pic this morning, I just thought to myself, LOOK AT HER! God is good, I am so happy that you are well. I needed to read this today also, thank you. Keep teaching us and sharing with us, you have touched so many lives.—-Rachel
