For many women, the Proverbs 31 woman is too perfect. But in reality, she is an ordinary woman who made herself available to an extraordinary God--and became a tremendous blessing to everyone around her.

It "is" possible for a woman to make the treasures of the Proverbs 31 woman real in her life--and become the woman God designed her to be
From Publishers Weekly The Proverbs 31 Woman. Since time immemorial, pastors and theologians have
weighed in on the valiant woman of Proverbs 31, finding in the acrostic Hebrew
poem a recipe for a perfect wife. New England minister Matthew Henry wrote in
the 18th century, for example, that the biblical passage showed that a woman
should keep to her sphere: She applies herself to the business that is proper
for her. It is not in a scholar's business, or statesman's business, that she
employs herself, but in women's business; She seeks wool and flax. In recent
years, feminists have recovered other aspects of the Proverbs 31 ideal, noting
that the woman was an entrepreneur, household manager and ancient real estate
agent. In Discovering the Treasures of a Godly Woman, Elizabeth George offers
a fairly balanced Bible study about Proverbs 31, stressing traditional
interpretations while also emphasizing the heroine's many strengths. While the
content is similar to many other evangelical books, George's is distinguished
by its attention to poetic devices and linguistic issues. Its interactive
workbook style will also encourage readers to engage the text for themselves.

Analyzing a Paragon Nov 28, 2009
I have used Ms. George's Bible studies for some time, but I was reluctant to have my class do this one. The Proverbs 31 woman is such a paragon of virtue that I didn't think any of us could measure up. This study acknowledges that the Proverbs 31 woman is a composite of virtues, which are probably not attainable by any one individual, but is, instead, a way to set goals for improving one's life. The study is worthy, and each lesson can be completed in twenty minutes or so, which is a virtue in our busy society. I recommend this study to individuals and small groups of women.
Great Study on Proverbs 31 Nov 5, 2009
I found this book very helpful because it's easy to read and it's broken up into do able time frames. Each chapter/study takes no more then 20 minutes to complete, but it makes you really consider what this woman was like and how that applies to you. I have found it very enjoyable. I highly recomend it to anyone wanting to further their study on the Godly Woman of Proverbs 31.

I think I have done all her studies and enjoyed them very much.
There are really only two things I have to say about them.
#1) I'm really not sold on the Calvinist beliefs, but could still do her studies without feeling like that perspective was shoved down my throat. She allows Scripture to speak to you for itself.
#2) She could really drop the "honey" and all the oozy, drippy sweetness and would lose nothing in the process. I grew tired of the condescending tones. I really imagine that in person, she probably relates that way and it comes across as truly loving and caring - but the written word somehow does not convey the same meaning. At least that was my perspective.
Yes, I highly recommend all her studies. You will grow for sure.
