30 Days in 1 Samuel 25, Day 19: Abigail’s Action

It doesn’t take long for Abigail to move into action after learning of the impending danger that threatened her household! As soon as the young man finishes speaking, we’re told, “Then Abigail hurried…”  She didn’t panic. She didn’t run to find Nabal and ask him why he had acted so foolishly. She didn’t sit back and say, “Serves him right. Let him deal with his own mess.” Instead, she started […]

Time for a Giveaway!

I’m already looking forward to our next study in November! I’m praying for all you ladies who are still working your  way through Proverbs31. I’m so glad you’re not quitting just because we’re not posting any new lessons. If you get done, and you haven’t done some of our earlier studies, check the archives. There are five other studies just waiting to be done! I’m also continuing to pray for […]

Thirty Days in Proverbs 31 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 29: Ruth, Part 2

The fact that Ruth is clearly identified as a woman of valor should give us hope. Ruth, at first glance, doesn’t seem to fit the Proverbs 31 Woman mold (just like us ). She’s a foreigner, a widow, a poor woman gleaning in the fields. She seems more like the poor and needy that benefit from the Proverbs 31 Woman’s kindness. But a closer study of the book of Ruth reveals […]

Thirty Days in Proverbs 31 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 28: Ruth, Part 1

What does a virtuous woman look like in real life?  If you turned the page in the Hebrew Bible after you’d read the last words of Proverbs 31, and you would find out. The book of Ruth follows immediately after the poem about the virtuous woman in Proverbs 31. First we read her description; then we see a real living example. We’re going to look at Ruth’s story. I think […]

Thirty Days in Proverbs 31 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 27: Catch-Up and Optional Lesson

If you’re “behind”, don’t feel bad. I started out telling you these assignments would take five to ten minutes a day, and I haven’t done a very good job of keeping my word. I think I should have made this a 60-day study! There’s so much to study and think about in this chapter! If you can only carve out five to ten minutes a day to study, then take […]

Thirty Days in Proverbs 31 for Busy, Busy Mamas, Day 26: But…

The little word, but, is always a big word when we’re studying the Bible. It lets us know that something new is coming. Grammatically speaking, but is a conjunction; it joins one statement with another, and those two statements contrast with each other in some way. We always want to look for the buts when we study a passage!  That’s what we’re finally going to do today. Assignment: Pray for God’s continued working in your heart as you […]
