Welcome to Week 1 in Proverbs 31!!! We are so delighted that you are here.
I know that a lot of women have mixed emotions about the Proverbs 31 woman – I mention in the video below how some women are intimidated and even irritated at this passage in the Bible.
I want to challenge women everywhere to read it, accept it, tremble in awe of the mighty God we serve who has called us to such a high task and pray.
This week’s reading assignment is found on our reading plan here and is also in our study guide here. (if you don’t wish to print the study guide just grab a spiral notebook and use the SOAP method below for each passage you read.)
We encourage you to daily be in God’s word using the Bible reading plan and the SOAP method. What is the S.O.A.P. method? So glad you asked!
The S.O.A.P. Method stands for:
1. S- Write out the scripture passage for the day.
2. O- Write down 1 or 2 observations from the passage.
3. A- Write down 1-2 applications from the passage.
4. P- Pray over what you learned from today’s passage.
This is a place of grace – college students, nursing moms, working moms, homeschooling moms, room moms, grandma’s caring for their grandchildren or ailing parents, and women from all walks of life are here! We women are busy and doers! We need this time – but this needs to be a time of peace – NO pressure – do what time allows.
Even when you miss a day of your quiet time, it’s important that you stay connected to your group. It is very easy to lose fellowship if you do not remain committed to your accountability group. Be honest. Say you are struggling – I KNOW they will lift you up in prayer! And Girls – we ALL need more prayer – don’t we?
I’m lifting you all up in prayer this week! Now dig in and enjoy!
Walk with the King!

**This Wednesday we will have a link-up for bloggers. If you have a blog, we invite you to write about what you are learning in your quiet time or about your GMG group. You DO NOT have to write about Proverbs 31 - we are interested in hearing from everyone about all the studies you are all doing. So please join our link-up party. If you are not a blogger, we invite you to visit other GMG’s blogs and to share here in our comment section what God is teaching you during your morning quiet time.
