about this blog.

Hello! I’m a soon-to-be hitched, graduate student tying the knot with Mister Cook.

This next year is a learning season for me to grow into being a godly woman, future wife, and future mother.

You may be thinking how can you learn all that in one year?! I can’t.

But I am going on this journey and will enjoy letting God shape me into His Bride for the rest of my existence on this earth.

With this blog, you can learn how to live on less so you can give/save more, receive tips on living an organized life, get delicious-tasting recipes, learn more DIY projects, get some fresh wedding ideas, hear some life stories, and a lot more!

Come with me on this quest to become a Proverbs 31 woman….

10 Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?
She is more precious than rubies.
11 Her husband can trust her,
and she will greatly enrich his life.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.

13 She finds wool and flax
and busily spins it.
14 She is like a merchant’s ship,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household
and plan the day’s work for her servant girls.

16 She goes to inspect a field and buys it;
with her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She is energetic and strong,
a hard worker.
18 She makes sure her dealings are profitable;
her lamp burns late into the night.

19 Her hands are busy spinning thread,
her fingers twisting fiber.
20 She extends a helping hand to the poor
and opens her arms to the needy.
21 She has no fear of winter for her household,
for everyone has warm clothes.

22 She makes her own bedspreads.
She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns.
23 Her husband is well known at the city gates,
where he sits with the other civic leaders.
24 She makes belted linen garments
and sashes to sell to the merchants.

25 She is clothed with strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future.
26 When she speaks, her words are wise,
and she gives instructions with kindness.
27 She carefully watches everything in her household
and suffers nothing from laziness.

28 Her children stand and bless her.
Her husband praises her:
29 “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world,
but you surpass them all!”

30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last;
but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
31 Reward her for all she has done.
Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.

-Proverbs 31:10-31

  1. I’m enjoying your blog, thanks for going out on a limb and publishing your journey for other young women. This is truly a radical walk.

  2. To be honest, Proverbs 31 has always freaked me out a little– in the sense that I know I am so not that woman and fear that I may never be. But I absolutely love the way you put it, that you want to “enjoy letting God shape [you] into His Bride for the rest of [your] existence on this earth.” Because you’re so right– it’s a process. Excited to read more from you! =]
