Item description for The Virtuous Woman: Shattering the Superwoman Myth (Workbook Journal) by Vicki Courtney...
Does the woman in Proverbs 31 make you feel like a sluggard?
For years Christian women have struggled to understand what the Proverbs 31 woman was all about. Instead of encouragement or instruction, for most, this passage offered "more guilt than eating a one-pound bag of M&Ms." Is this the ideal woman? Or is the Proverbs 31 woman an outdated fixture of the past?
Vicki Courtney believes that this passage is not in the Bible by accident and that a virtuous woman is a rare find in today's world. Join Vicki as she sojourns with you to unravel the mystery behind the Proverbs 31 woman.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Virtuous Woman: Shattering the Superwoman Myth (Workbook Journal)?
TRIED TO ELLEVIATE GUILT IN WOMEN AND JUST LEFT EXCUSES Mar 18, 2007
I realize that the Proverbs 31 woman is awe inspiring, but she wouldn't be in the Bible if she weren't someone to emulate. Mrs. Courtney seemed to give excuses as to why and how we can't be like her, sooth our frustrations and give us very watered ways to improve our pathetic lives. This book was ineffective and unhelpful. It didn't make me want to be like this beautiful woman - only how to make excuses for myself as to why I can't.
Excellent Book! Dec 2, 2006
From the moment I started this book, I knew it was going to teach me... and it did. When you first read the bible and these verses, it is extremely intimidating. These days, who actually buys sheep, makes their own thread and then makes clothes and bedding with it? This book has 12 chapters, each chapter discusses major points drawn from the Proverbs 31 passage about being a virtuous woman. Something I like about this book, is that it uses other verses of the bible to make a point. This book has high impact. With the help of this book by Vicki Courtney, I've learned I am not that bad... I have a long way to go, but, with the help of God, I can get there -- I can be a virtuous woman.
Wondermus!!!! Oct 2, 2006
I thought this book was terrific. It helped me as a woman to see that the virtuous woman spoken of in proverbs was an idea of the perfect woman that God desires. It validated me in ways that helped me overcome insecurities and feelings of inadequacy about being a woman in general. God has provided us with a wonderful model of the virtousity that He desires in a wife for the GOD-man! Vicki Courtney does a fabulous job at showing that she too is a work in progress. Thanks for sharing your insight with us all Vicki.
great book! Jul 13, 2006
I have always been intimidated by the "proverbs 31 woman" But Vicky Courtney does a great job bringing her down to earth and giving real life advice on how to follow God's ideals. I suggest this book for all women who are tired of trying to be "superwoman"
Very Practical! Jun 29, 2006
I have really enjoyed using this book with my mom's group Bible study. It is very applicable and practical. It is thought-provoking and very funny.
