My thoughts: It has been quite a long but fulfilling 90-day journey with this book and I can confidently say, it has changed my life in so many ways. I am not one who likes to read non-fiction, however, I can say I was moved to buy this book (Literarily) in addition to the fact that I have always admired the qualities of ‘the Proverbs 31 Woman’. I would have thought that I had most of these qualities (well, at least some) but going through this study taught me so many new things that I did not know or did not think I was capable of achieving. The most visible change in my life which my husband and kids can attest to is in the area of ‘Home Management’ (which many people close to me think I am soooo good at). I learnt new and better ways to manage the home front a lot better, my health, my business, ways to win souls for Christ and most importantly the drive to start-up this blog. I am grateful to God for giving me the opportunity to grow not only spiritually but in all aspects of my life as a wife, mother and everything that I am and strive to be. I have decided to use this book as a daily devotional which I will start all over again after 90 days (Yes, that’s how good I feel about this book). I encourage every Christian woman after God’s heart to get a copy of this book and go through the study. You will come out to be a modern Proverbs 31 Woman whose husband and children will rise up to call you blessed!
