A Virtuous Woman

I found this cute handbook for moms and thought it was neat. If you happen to be an organizer, you will appreciate it and if you would like to be more organized you may appreciate it as well. I thought this entire website was so good .



This morning in Bible Study, we were discussing the topic {dreaded topic for some} of submission. Later today I was searching for a book on the internet, and came across this article that ties into that very subject. I thought it was kind of like a "short, quick study". If you are interested...

That is the woman I want to be in a "nutshell." I just wonder if they had more hours in the day back then. That was a very powerful message and I am glad you shared it.
