Proverbs 31:10

This past Saturday I was motivated to be a godly woman at our Biblical Womanhood Seminar. I am sure that most of the stuff discussed I had heard before but I don't think it ever touched me like it did on Saturday. Both of my daughters were there and I think it impacted them also. Another thing that touched my heart Saturday was the fact that Amanda, Sara and Raluca (Our Pastors wives) want to help us bring up godly women.

10 An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. 11 The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.12 She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life. - Proverbs 31:10-12

One of the things we learned was that our marriage reflects the relationship of Christ and the Church. Our Husbands should be top priority. The best way to be an excellent mom is to be an excellent wife. The way we show love and respect for our husbands will make the greatest impact on our children.

You can teach your children many things but how you live your life will make the greatest impact.

Sara, Raluca, and Amanda

God is so Good!
