1 31 Practical Tips for the Proverbs 31 Mom Presented by Andie Davidson




5 Preparing Yourself…

6 Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23 Tip #1 The state of your heart is often the state of your home…

7 Tip #2 Stay in the Word and maintain consistent fellowship with Him in prayer If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. John 15

8 Tip #3 Do not resist the Holy Spirit’s sanctification through your homeschooling journey But women will be saved through childbearing--if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety. 1 Tim. 2:15

9 Tip #4 Cheerfully & faithfully adjust to the workload that the Lord gives you in each season Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Cor. 10:31

10 Tip #5 Remember, God’s grace is not a limited commodity so give it freely and trust Him to refill you

11 Tip #6 Be like David, stop listening to yourself and start talking to yourself Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. Psalm 43:5 “Have you realized that most of your unhappiness in life is due to the fact that you are listening to yourself instead of talking to yourself? Take those thoughts that come to you the moment you wake up in the morning. You have not originated them, but they start talking to you, they bring back the problems of yesterday…” - Dr. Martin Lloyd Jones

12 Tip #7 Set goals for yourself and your family Plan a date night with your spouse to set some annual goals for your family Write down your personal goals & ask a friend to keep you accountable Physical Goals Reading Goals Quiet Time Goals Child Training Goals Homeschooling Goals

13 Tip #8 Treat your body like a tool, not a treasure… Prepare physically Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. 1 Cor. 6:19-20

14 Tip #9 Adopt a biblical philosophy of ‘Me time’ “There is no getting around the fact That to give yourself wholeheartedly to the rearing of children Will eliminate you from a lot of activities your friends are enjoying And often from activities that seem to be obligations Not merely social, but perhaps church, Family, business and civic ones. You will have to ask God for wisdom to choose And the guts to stick to the choice. Don’t pay attention to “you-owe-it-to-yourself” talk. You owe nothing to yourself, and everything to God.” ~ Elisabeth Elliot ~
