Beautiful in God's Eyes

I love this book. It's one of my favorites! Elizabeth George is the author of Beautiful in God's Eyes. She is encouraging as she shares the historical and Biblical perspective on the Proverbs 31 woman.

I've been using this book in the teen girls Sunday School class. I don't teach every week, so it seems like it's taking so long to finish it. We're getting close, but won't be able to finish it this spring. The teens have a different set up for Sunday School in the summertime. 

Each chapter focuses on a verse, or a portion of a verse. The author talks about the customs and historical significance of the time; but she also gives helps on how we can emulate this beautiful woman. I've added some of my own ideas to make it more practical for teens. After all, this is great for them, too, as they're becoming women and should now be working on character qualities and home skills. I've really learned a lot studying the life of this woman, too. God's been working in my own life about some of these things. Taking care of my husband, children (future), as well as learning how to be frugal and wise with money is something I want to exemplify.

"Favor is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised."  Proverbs 31:30

I'm glad you like it. You might want to check out or Ebay to try to find a good deal on this book. The author has several other books that have been a help to me, too. Good to see you back. How did the move go?
