  • Christal for verse 10
    I feel a virtous woman loves God as well as fears a life without doing her best to be the woman God wants her to be and not living as a good christian. She loves her husband and children. She will do everything she can to care for them and make sure their needs are placed before her needs. She also cares for others and helps others in need. She stands with her husband, trusts him, supports him in his decisions for their family, and trys her best to be a voice of reason for him during times of need. In short she is his best friend outside of God. She also shows loving, kindness, an careing in everything she does. She does not gossip, metal in other peoples business, or show an unkind heart to anyone and keeps her love of God and then family above all.
  • Kathleen maynard for verse 10
    A virtuous woman is one who loves god cares for her family and the needs of others.
