My favorite book by one of my favorite authors!

Elizabeth George is an excellent writer.  Her devotionals and study books are ALL a must read.  This book, Beautiful in God's Eyes: The Treasures of the Proverbs 31 Woman, is my favorite book and I have been reading it every January since it was first published.  Thank you Elizabeth George for your insightful words of encouragement in every book your write!

This book is a must read for all woman! Author Elizabeth George has written an enlightening interpretation of the Proverbs 31 woman. Reading this book will encourage you in your every day life as a Christian woman.

Beginning with verse 10 of Proverbs 31 the author takes each verse and applies it to your life today. Some of the chapter titles include, A Spring of Goodness--Her Mission, An Eager Attitude—Her Work, and The Law of Kindness—Her Words. There are a total of twenty-four uplifting chapters that correlate with the verses found in Proverbs 31.

In the chapter titled A Spring of Goodness—Her Mission, she gives a helpful list called the ABC’s of Goodness. This particular list is great for brides to be or any married woman. Some of the list includes, C-control your spending, E-encourage his dreams, and L-look not at what others have. You will learn how to be an encouragement to your husband and family.

In the chapter titled An Eager Attitude—Her Work she shares some reasons why we put off housework and ways to look at the work in a more positive way. She lists four main reasons for failing to do the work: poor use of time, lack of motivation, failure to plan, and procrastination. Each of these reasons is discussed and helpful information is given on how to overcome them. You may even start enjoying some of those tedious tasks!

In the chapter titled The Law of Kindness—Her Words you will be reminded how much what you say influences those around you. Just your words in the morning can start your family’s day in a positive or negative way. She reiterates your need to think before you speak.

Those were just three examples of the many great chapters in this book. You will find the book easy to read with excellent illustrations for today’s woman. All women will enjoy and learn from this book whether married or single. You will feel like Elizabeth George is sitting next to you offering these great words of wisdom. Her words encourage you to live up to this Godly Proverbs 31 woman without discouraging you from all the hard work it takes.

I would recommend this book for every woman and teenage girl!  This is a 5/5 star book!
