Created to Be His Help Meet~Chapter 1

I just started reading Created to Be His Helpmeet and thought I would share my notes from each chapter. They may seem rather random, but that's the kind of note taker that I am and I will be typing this exactly as I have it written.

~Regardless of what kind of person you have been in the past, with instructions from God's word, you can become a heavenly sent gift bride. You can still be your man's dream come true and in the process your dreams will come true also.

~A man who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor with God. Proverbs 18:22

~You were created to make him complete.

~If God created a special woman perfectly suited to be my husband's helper, would I be that woman?

~When you are a helper to your husband, you are a helper to Christ.
When you obey your husband, you obey God.
When you honor your husband, you honor God.
The degree to which you reverance your husband is the degree to which
you reverance your Creator.
As we serve our husbands, we serve God.
When you dishonor your husband, you dishonor God.

~ Who said anything about what your husband deserves?

~ It is better that the job be done poorly by your husband, than to be done well by you.

~ His place of authority does not make him better, it simply means that we are here to help him do his job better.

~If he can trust you he will make you his closest advisor, his confidante, etc.

~ A perfect help meets readiness to please motivates her to look around and see things she knows her husband would like to see done and do them.

~Meet-suited, suitable, proper, due, useful
A helper suitable
A helper suited to him
A proper helper
A useful helper
The helper that is due him

~ Virtue-a virtuous woman is far above rubies Proverbs 31:10
Graciousness - a gracious woman retains honor Proverbs 11:16
Wisdom - she opens her mouth with wisdom Proverbs 31:26
Prudence-a prudent wife is from the Lord Proverbs 19:14
(Prudent=discreet )

~A good help meet has a passion to be of service, first to her husband and children, then to others.
