This book is a must read for all woman! Author Elizabeth George has written an enlightening interpretation of the Proverbs 31 woman. Reading this book will encourage you in your every day life as a Christian woman.

Beginning with verse 10 of Proverbs 31 the author takes each verse and applies it to your life today. Some of the chapter titles include, A Spring of Goodness--Her Mission, An Eager Attitude—Her Work, and The Law of Kindness—Her Words. There are a total of twenty-four uplifting chapter
This is the next best book to A Woman After Gods Own Heart...also a great book about how a woman should conduct herself.

Again ELizabeth George shares the truth gently but firmly.
This was a good book to dig in deeper to the Proverbs 31 woman. I did my own study in addition to this book and between the two, it was amazing!

This book is totally amazing. A couple friends and I read this through the summer and met weekly {for the most part} to discuss the book and life.

Mrs. George is sugary sweet in her writing and at some point I think I may have called her a Robot. But her writing is amazing. It's like she's writing you a letter and you are her closest friend. She totally lets her difficulties to attain the "Proverbs 31 Woman" status show. She hits it straight on many points about why you'll struggle and encourage

This was a very helpful book in growing in Biblical Womanhood. I like how Elizabeth George went through each verse in Proverbs 31:10-31 expanding on each verse and giving practical ways to live out each verse. It was a challenging book because when I looked in depth at the proverbs 31 woman I saw how excellent her character was and realize how far I fall short of that. However, I am excited to grow in godly character as a woman and I plan to refer back to "Beautiful in God's Eyes" many times to ...more
This book is definitely written more towards married women, but as a single gal there was a lot that I was able to glean from it. There were points that did not settle well with me, but I always try to go into a book like this balancing who I am and my personality with becoming more of what God wants for me. So there was quite a bit that I did not necessarily take to heart and that's ok. A book does not define me - God does. I really do want to be able to live like the Proverbs 31 woman and cont ...more

I loved this book because it helped me put my current life into perspective with what a present day Proverbs 31 woman would look like. It gave me permission to do more than I thought I could do.

Ensina como uma mulher, que teme a Deus, pode se comportar.
Every woman, married or not, should read this. Some of the concepts seem a bit dated but if we look at the bigger picture, we will see how wonderful God has created us and what His plans are for us. Great book for the feminist perspective as it gives us a different take on how submission to our husbands is not negative. You will argue with some of the author's explanations but overall I felt a deeper understanding of my role in my marriage, and God knows I was struggling with that. LOOK AT THE B ...more
I give this book 3 out of 5 stars. I read this within acouple of days since it was a quick easy devotional read. The reason why I give it 3 out of 5 stars is because I liked it but I couldn't really relate to the stuff when she mentioned having a husband or a family of your own, it was a good devotional on the woman in Proverbs 31. I recommend this to any woman out there who is a Christian, married, or engaged.

The proverbs 31 wife is within reach and this books explains how to get there. It doesn’t delve into the theological aspects of this woman, however, it’s still worth taking a look. Certain chapters encourage women to become better mothers and wives by giving simple instructions on becoming more godly and refined.
Every woman with a heart for serving God, family and friends should read this book.

Whether married, single, wife, mother, business professional or homemaker...this book really elucidates the blueprints set for us as women of God in Proverbs chapter 31.
Well, I'm in the process of reading this book. I think it's going to be very good though. The Proverbs 31 woman can almost seem so hard to achieve. But, taken step by step, and a lot of grace from God, it can be done! Anyway, I'm not finished yet!
This is the first book I have read by Elizabeth George and I loved it so much I immediately ordered her devotional book upon completing it! She truly breathed life into Proverbs 31 for me, and I will never look at that passage the same way again.
Such a great book! Made me see the Proverbs 31 woman in a whole different light and see how practically each day I could act out what a woman after God's heart does in her faithfulness, diligence and love!
This is a spiritually uplifting read. Just when you think you are just worn to the bone, find the women in the Bible that have walked the same path and what they did to get by.
I really like and recommend this book as well, especially to single and married women. I love this book and desire to be this virtuous more and more!!

No harping, no munipulation, just good clean examples of that Proverbs 31 woman that we look up to. The author brings it together and makes a beautiful thing.
Danielle Provau
helped become a better wife. I need to go back to it every now and then I get off track but it really helped my marriage and family in general
This book is amazing! Elizabeth George brings the Proverbs 31 woman to life in an extremely inspiring and insightful way.
I've read this book several times and keep it close by for inspiration! This is definitely one of my favorites!
Another excellent book. So encouraging and I'll keep this one handy as I'm sure it will be reread often.
I'd give it a 3 1/2 if I could. Good practical suggestions, but mostly aimed at married women.
So far, nothing really new but it was recommended so I'm slowly making my way through it.
The most encouraging, inspiring book I've read. Practical living for women today.
Pam Bailey
She is an excellent writer-after reading her books I see and feel changes within me.
Ferrer Joey Fesico
God is the root of all goodness and love. I'll say treasures are treasure.
I am currently reading this book.
It motivates me to keep pushing on in life.
Virginia Knowles
My favorite Elizabeth George book. I should reread this one!
