Are You the Proverbs 31 Woman? Should You Be? – 092

A catchphrase often used among the Christian community “a Proverbs 31 woman” is thrown about with underlying expectations. It can bring with it inspiration, but also pride, fear, and even insecurity. This passage is referenced when discussing “how we should live” as women of faith and even the way it begins, the “wife of noble character” can be intimidating. Can you be like her? Should you even try? Co-hosts Darlene Brock and Julie Graham (both Christian women who have been in church for decades) candidly share how they feel about this woman they’ve been taught to look up to (and emulate). They consider how grit and grace apply while learning what we can from this woman portrayed without the expectations of others. This episode offers encouragement to remember that your value comes from who you are, not what others see you do.
