“Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” Colossians 4:7 (NLT)
The Wise Woman Builds Her Spirit
- Before getting out of bed in the morning, commit your day to God. Acknowledge God’s sovereignty over the day and ask God to help you accept His plan for you.
- For a simple and cheap luxury, use this simple recipe: Mix brown sugar and olive oil together to use as a hand, foot, or lip scrub.
The Wise Woman Loves Her Husband
- If your husband wears a suit or collared shirts to work, spend some time ironing and folding his clothes. Write a sweet note saying “Ironed with Love,” and fold it or hang it with the garment where he will find it when getting dressed.
- Let your husband sleep in or take a nap, guilt-free! Consider taking the kids out of the house while he rests to give him peace and quiet.
The Wise Woman Loves Her Children
- Commit to only using positive and uplifting words when speaking to your children for at least two days this week. Let your children see you always ready with a kind word and a helpful hand.
- Let your children plan the dinner menu one night this week. After the menu is set, get them involved in preparing the meal that night. Small hands can help wash vegetables, set the table, etc.
The Wise Woman Cares For Her Home
- Stop to consider what in your routine is not working for your family, and find a new solution. Don’t be afraid to cut something out of your schedule in order to give your family more time together.
- Stick to your family budget this week. Don’t buy anything that is not budgeted for in your plan. If you do not have a family budget, sit down and create one with your spouse.
