Chapter 7 {An Enterprising Spirit}

"Don't waste your time looking back on what you have lost.  Move on, for life is not meant to be traveled backwards."
-Unknown Author

"She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar."
Proverbs 31:14

Like the merchants ships of her day, this Proverbs 31 woman sets sail and glides on and on...searching, looking , seeking and obtaining what she wants to provide for her family.  Motivated by love for those she cares about, she sets forth on a mission with vigor and anticipation, willing to explore beyond the familiarity and convenience of her neighborhood market.

Here's how:
#1.  A heart of love is the first thing on the list.  Without love we are nothing (1 Corinthians 13:2), and so, without love we will want to do nothing! So...
Make your home your first priority
Spend time with other women. Listen to women who speak with heartfelt love about their husband, their children and their home.  You'll find the enthusiasm contagious!

#2. A vision of loveliness gives wings to an enterprising spirit.  As a creative individual, nurture you own vision of loveliness and offer your family your personal expressions of beauty.
Surround yourself with beauty
Make your vision of loveliness a reality

#3.  God's assignment to love your family in the practicalities of daily life gives an enterprising spirit of direction.
Become a wise shopper
Search for the unusual
Consider bartering
Become the "resident artist"

See you soon!
