    Highly recommended!!!!!!!!

    This book is about the Proverbs 31 woman. Vicki Courtney breaks down the chapter and uses meaningful and relevant examples to deconstruct the text. Additionally, she uses correlating Scripture to support her explanations. I truly enjoyed reading it and I shared it with 4 friends. I plan to re-read it in the near future.!
