Women of Virtue

Here at Maranatha, we want to encourage women to serve God in every aspect of their lives. Being a Proverbs 31 woman is not about being “perfect.” It’s about living life with purpose, diligence, forgiveness, and repentance.

  1. Faith – A Virtuous Woman serves God with all of her heart, mind, and soul. She seeks His will for her life and follows His ways. (Proverbs 31: 26Proverbs 31: 29 – 31Matthew 22: 37John 14: 15Psalm 119: 15)
  2. Marriage – A Virtuous Woman respects her husband. She does him good all the days of her life. She is trustworthy and a helpmeet. (Proverbs 31: 11- 12Proverbs 31: 23Proverbs 31: 281 Peter 3Ephesians 5Genesis2: 18)
  3. Mothering – A Virtuous Woman teaches her children the ways of her Father in heaven. She nurtures her children with the love of Christ, disciplines them with care and wisdom, and trains them in the way they should go. (Proverbs 31: 28Proverbs 31: 26Proverbs 22: 6Deuteronomy 6Luke 18: 16)

  6. Finances – A Virtuous Woman seeks her husband’s approval before making purchases and spends money wisely. She is careful to purchase quality items which her family needs. (Proverbs 31: 14Proverbs 31: 16Proverbs 31: 181 Timothy 6: 10Ephesians 5: 23Deuteronomy 14: 22Numbers 18: 26)

  10. Beauty – A Virtuous Woman is a woman of worth and beauty. She has the inner beauty that only comes from Christ. She uses her creativity and sense of style to create beauty in her life and the lives of her loved ones. (Proverbs 31: 10Proverbs 31: 21 – 22Proverbs 31: 24 -25Isaiah 61: 101 Timothy 2: 9, 1 Peter 3: 1 – 6)
