My Daily Bread

There are so many different ways to get spiritually fed.  A couple of years ago my sister Jessica introduced me to Proverbs 31 Ministries.  It is one of my sources of daily spiritual bread.  Proverbs 31 Ministries' mission is to "bring God’s peace, perspective, and purpose to today’s busy woman".   I am one of those "busy women" who needs words of wisdom to help me improve myself and get right with God.  I receive their Daily Devotions via email and it is amazing how God speaks to me directly to me.  The readings always seem to apply to some part of my life.  I encourage you to sign up!

The Seven Principles of the Proverbs 31 Woman
  1. Pursues an ongoing, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
  2. Loves, honors, and greatly enriches the life of her husband, encouraging and supporting his leadership within his family and his church.
  3. Nurtures the next generation, shaping and molding the children who will one day define who we are as a community and as a nation.
  4. Creates a warm and loving environment for family and friends.
  5. Is a faithful steward of the time and money God has entrusted to her.
  6. Speaks with wisdom and faithful instruction as she encourages others and develops godly friendships.
  7. Shares the love of Christ by extending her hands to help the poor and opening her arms to the needy.


  1. Thanks for telling us about this site and for sharing these wise principles. Happy New Year!

  2. Thanks for this, Yoli. I've ordered my (still paper-based) Bible notes for the year but they haven't arrived yet - no post until tomorrow! I think that this list doesn't make enough of one of the special attributes that you share with the Proverbs 31 Woman - making beautiful things and selling them with great skill. It always really impresses me that she balances her home-life with a great entreprenurial talent - and so do you!

  3. That is a wonderful site. I stop by often, very encouraging and inspirational.
    May the new year bring peace and joy to you and your family.
    God Bless,

  4. A lovely post. Have a blessed New Year.

  5. Great help for daily Bible studies which are so vital! Spending time in the wonderful Word of God on a daily basis is one of the best ways to fulfill #1 and the encouraging Bible verses we find there are such a blessing to us throughout the day. Have a lovely Spiritual Sunday :)

  6. This is a wonderful program, Yoli. I'm glad you're taking advantage of it. Thank you for sharing the information so others can join you.
    Blessings for a Happy New Year.
