bladingWhat career plans have you made?

Education goals?

Things you want to teach your children this year?

What about goals as a wife?  Have you set any of those lately?

Most likely not…but if you have, way to go!  Most of us don’t approach marriage as intentionally as we do, let’s say, shopping for groceries or planning a vacation.

Here’s a goal for each of us to strive for from Proverbs 31:10:

A wife of noble character who can find?  She is worth far more than rubies.

So how can you increase in “noble character?”  It does sound rather nebulous, but as you think about it, there are several measurable things you could do:

  • Read Proverbs 31:10-31 aloud every evening
  • Read a good marriage book
  • Keep a list of the things you’re grateful for in your marriage
  • Put a guard over your mouth – only speak words that are constructive
  • Read biographies of noble, Christian women you admire
  • Have coffee with an older, more mature Christian who can be a role model to you as a wife

As you can see, when you set a goal to improve your marriage, you can be specific and tailor make a goal to suit your needs.

My goal at the moment is to learn how to rollerblade happily.  Sunday afternoons has become our family time to rollerblade.  James loves it.  The kids love it.  And I’m…well, just trying not to be too grumpy.

My goal is to smile while learning.

What’s the next “wife goal” on your agenda?
