Rachel Held Evans’ Blog Post About the Proverbs 31 Woman

Ever since I first found the works of Rachel Held Evans, I’ve been transfixed by her ideas. A sweet lady at church handed me her book, “A Year of Biblical Womanhood: How a Liberated Woman Found Herself Sitting on Her Roof, Covering Her Head, and Calling Her Husband Master” and I was blown away by this woman who tackled some of the more difficult passages directed to women with seriousness and humor at the same time. Here’s a link to this book:

She also has another brand new book out called “Faith Unraveled.” I can’t wait to read it. After I read Mrs. Evans’ works, I also started reading some of the women she quotes, including Sarah Bessey’s “Jesus Feminist.” That book is little by little blowing the lid off what I thought I believed.

I want to share her latest post which is a nice complement to the post I wrote yesterday. Mrs. Evans was the one who opened my eyes concerning the Proverbs 31 Woman–who has somehow become a bit of an old testament Urban Legend.

Please enjoy her post about the Proverbs 31 Woman.

  1. ” But be careful of focusing on marriage, motherhood, and domesticity, when it is not our roles that define us, but the integrity and bravery we bring to those roles.” Really, really good! It’s not about what I do that makes me a woman of valor, but HOW I do it, the integrity I bring to the table. Very good, thanks for that take on the Proverbs 31 woman!
