Project 31

She Breathes Deeply


I've decided to jump on with Project 31. I've really been praying and seeking the Lord on what it looks like to be a biblical wife (like reading Proverbs 31), so it is so neat to see this come up on my updates. I feel like this little day by day blogging experience can help me get my thoughts out there and get feed back from other beautiful women who are my friends, wives, mothers, etc. So...sit back and be encouraged while I and other women blog for the next 31 days.

I first saw this here and here.

Tomorrow will be the first day and I will blog about "What does beauty mean to you?"

What is Project 31?
"Project: 31" is you celebrating your God given beauty, and celebrating the beautiful women around you. The meaning behind the project is taken from this:"

Proverbs 31:10-31
The Virtuous Wife
10 Who can find a virtuous wife?
For her worth
is far above rubies.
11 The heart of her husband safely trusts her;
So he will have no lack of gain.
12 She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.
13 She seeks wool and flax,
And willingly works with her hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
She brings her food from afar.
15 She also rises while it is yet night,
And provides food for her household,
And a portion for her maidservants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
From her profits she plants a vineyard.
17 She girds herself with strength,
And strengthens her arms.
18 She perceives that her merchandise is good,
And her lamp does not go out by night.
19 She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hand holds the spindle.
20 She extends her hand to the poor,
Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.
21 She is not afraid of snow for her household,
For all her household
is clothed with scarlet.
22 She makes tapestry for herself;
Her clothing
is fine linen and purple.
23 Her husband is known in the gates,
When he sits among the elders of the land.
24 She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies sashes for the merchants.
25 Strength and honor are her clothing;
She shall rejoice in time to come.
26 She opens her mouth with wisdom,
And on her tongue
is the law of kindness.
27 She watches over the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband
also, and he praises her:
29 “ Many daughters have done well,
But you excel them all.”
30 Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
But a woman
who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.
31 Give her of the fruit of her hands,
And let her own works praise her in the gates.
