New Episode of Word for Word: More precious than jewels

April 7, 2011
Women – particularly mothers – are hard on themselves. This became very apparent to me as I joined the ranks of mommy groups after my first baby was born two years ago. With the pressures of caring for our children, our homes, and our family’s faith life placed squarely on our shoulders, we have good days and bad… but all with that nagging feeling that, somehow, we’re failing or, at least, not doing as good a job as _________ (insert name here).
So it’s easy, then to understand the mixed feelings toward the woman in Proverbs 31. Here is a woman more precious than jewels, with an accomplished list of tasks, from cooking and cleaning to exemplary care for her family and devotion to God. Instantly, our defenses are up and we have a whole list of excuses as to why WE cannot be like HER.
But in this upcoming episode of Word for Word, we meet author, mother, and homemaker Kimberly Hahn. Her book, Graced and Gifted: Biblical Wisdom for the Homemaker’s Heart, puts the accomplishments of the Proverbs 31 Woman into both perspective and reach.
Join us for Word for Word on April 8th at 8:30pm ET and discover the words and wisdom of the Proverbs 31 woman.
