The Proverbs 31 Woman Today. Often women believe that Proverbs 31 doesn’t really apply to our modern lives. But I believe that God’s Word stands the test of time, don’t you. God’s Word is still relevant today.

These 10 Virtues of the Proverbs 31 Woman demonstrate how, as Christian women today, we can all be Proverbs 31 Women. For the Stoics held that the soul's passions cannot be in a wise or virtuous man: whereas the Peripatetics, who were founded by Aristotle, as Augustine says (De Civ.
