How Proverbs 31 Changed My Marriage Before It Started

NOTE: I had the chance to write for Dallas Family Magazine this month. Here’s a look.

I was trying to decide on a chicken course for my wedding when it hit me: I was going to be a wife. I was starting a new family, and I didn’t know where to start on me.

My fiancé and I had read a handful of books on marriage since we became engaged, and we’d also talked through dozens of “questions you should ask before you get married.” However, besides being in the midst of planning our summer nuptials, I was still worried.

So in between proofing invitation fonts and dress fittings, I started looking for God’s design for a wife, and my first study included Proverbs 31, a chapter that many women have looked to for guidance. It’s list of qualities includes getting up early, working hard, sewing, and feeding the poor—some of which were traits and tasks I hadn’t even perfected as a single woman.
