I read this about 12 years ago with a group of other ladies. They all seemed to enjoy it, but I wasn't so sure, though I didn't express my feelings at the time. After thinking about the book in the following months I realised that the material in it was more of a reflection of the Protestant work ethic and American culture than the Biblical message on women. I did get something out of the book, hence the two stars, but I have avoided anything else by this author ever since.

Do you know where Dorothy Johnson was when she went to heaven to meet her Lord face to face? She was in her favorite chair, with her table lamp lit... crocheting during yet another evening alone. She was thinking of others, doing for others, and, knowing Dorothy, probably praying for others as she worked with her hands.

The author of this book works one by one through each verse of Proverbs 31 in order to constru

This book was a much needed reminder of all I am striving for. Sometimes circumstances and the way people treat us can and will get us down or make us cruel. This book reminded me that I must look at them with the eyes of God, showing them mercy and kindness even when I don't think they deserve it because that is what God did. I hope one day to be a living example to those around me of the Proverbs 31 woman but I sure have a long way to go, and am grateful that God is with me every step of the w ...more

I am more than thrilled to be done with this book. I debated about giving it two stars, but there is some good content, which is why I assigned three. I have read quite a few Elizabeth George books and they were ALL excellent. When I got together a group of women for a Bible study, I decided to use this without reading it first. Big mistake I will not make again. I feel like we have been on this book forever. Although there are many good points, they are made so often that they become redundant ...more

By far my favorite line of study guides. This study guide was perfect. Questions, sections & overall content was very well planned and executed. It looked at Proverbs 31 and slowly worked through it so I got a very good in depth study of what it means to live as a Proverbs 31 woman. This particular study guide was easy to put down and pick up while still retaining the info (which is needed with small kids)!

The study was good. It did seem repetitive and less interesting toward the end. Also even though I am a woman who stays at home even I found some of this book to be a little too traditional at times. But overall you take what you want from the book and I enjoyed it.

very well written... the only thing I didn't like was how short of time it took to do each lesson...

Repetitive but perfect for the woman on the go...not too long and sticks with you.

This book should have been much shorter. We were miserable in the study group until it was finally over.

I just finished this little gem yesterday. I used it for my daily quiet time and just devoured it! I always love her studies!
