I am excited to welcome Amy Bayliss, the author of Pursuit of Proverbs 31 as a guest poster for today!


We all need to be inspired once in a while so we are encouraged to keep moving forward or re-invent something that might work better. How can we do that?

One of my goals in writing Pursuit of Proverbs 31 was to inspire and motivate other women to not only see the Proverbs 31 “woman” in a new light, but also to encourage women to dig deeper into God’s word and discover these truths on your own.


Don’t take someone else’s word about what is in the Bible. All too often, God’s word is misinterpreted or
taken out of context. I, too, have taken for granted what someone else told me is biblical fact without researching for myself. It can happen to any of us. What is worse is that we can then turn around and teach these falsities
to others and misguide them. This is avoidable. We must seek Him for ourselves.
We must be fully confident in what we teach, especially with regard
to Scripture. We will be held accountable for each word.

James 3:1-2 “Not many of you should presume to be teachers,
my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be
judged more strictly. We all stumble in many ways. If anyone is
never at fault in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to keep
his whole body in check.”

I don’t want to scare you with that. I only hope to encourage you to seek
His word for yourself. Most of us are, or will be, teachers to someone at
some point in our life so we must know how to study the Word. For yourself,
your family, your friends, your neighbors…seek His word.

There is so much inspiration to be discovered when you read God’s word for yourself. It’s amazing how much more insightful and exciting it is when God shows us something, specifically. It carries a wee bit more weight.

If you’ve ever wanted to tear the 31st chapter of Proverbs out of your bible this book is for you. She is a wife, mom, business owner, seamstress, she serves the needy, speaks life and wisdom, and seems to be quite the major overachiever, perfectionist type.

Except that…she’s not.

Come along and journey with Amy and take a look at the real woman of Proverbs 31. She isn’t as perfect as she seems. In fact, I think she is a lot like you and me.
