New kid on the block! I hope I can catch up and stay with all of you as we venture this topic
I have ordered book from Proverbs 31. Hoping to get it soon to start! I am reading the blogs. Thanks for the wonderful ideas.
Looking forward to your study! Hope to purchase the book soon. Love the idea of downloading it from Amazon, gonna try that!
I am so excited about this study!!! I am a mother of 3 busy teenagers. We are rarely home…It is tough to keep up with everything. With in the past few years we have quit having friends and family over for dinner, family doesn’t even stop by….I can’t wait to get a new perspective on making my home welcoming again. It is a blessing to me to have people over and comfortable. Thanks for doing this study.
PRAISE THE LORD!!! And for me that is never cliche… I don’t know if this is where comments are re ways to make hubby more welcomed.:) Married for almost 36ys, realized he wants me to put medicine on a condition on his back. He didn’t expressed a need before but when I commented on how his body was healing, he expressed he couldn’t reach the ones on his back!!! Imagine that-rubbing cream on the back of my hubby was sexy to him….After 35 ys, should have known his hands don’t reach the middle of his back…. And I still get excited when I hear his key in the door…..

I just found you via the Prov 31 blog and I am super excited about this study. My husband is in the military and we just moved to the west coast and I have been lamenting leaving “southern hospitality” to anyone who will listen. God seems to say to me each time I feel sorry for myself that this is my chance to be the hospitable one… Your study is perfect. Thank you :) I’m ordering the kindle version so I can start right away!
