This book was pretty funny, which at times took away from some of the deeper issues the author seemed to be getting at.

This was a very good book for my women's small group. The "Digging Deep" sections at the end provided wonderfully thought-provoking questions. Personally, I could have done eithout the lead in stories. While a few were funny, I found a lot of them simply too silly to read. I skipped the second half of them during our study as I didn't feel they were adding anything to the learning. Overall,I enjoyed the lessons and conversations that came from the book.

Good women's group book. One of the funniest books I have ever read. Chapters are short and to the point. Great for Christian book clubs especially when people never have time to do the reading.

Very Funny--this book is a series of essays on each of the author's experiments with trying to live the different virtues of the proverbs woman. Very relatable!!

Nobody's perfect,only Jesus is.But as we aspire to be a Proverbs 31 woman, we are simply to do our best under God's guidance, and leave the rest to him
