As I mentioned previously, I am participating in an online book club through Good Morning Girls using the book "Ministry of Motherhood" by Sally Clarkson. Each day we have a scripture passage that we use the "SOAP" method to meditate upon. Each week I will post a "wrap-up" about what I have learned. I will choose my favorite verse and share my “SOAP” entries with you. I will also share the Bible references and my personal prayers for the entire week. Feel free to check out my previous posts too!
I chose Thursday’s passage: Proverbs 14:1
S- Write out the scripture passage for the day
"Wisdom builds her house but Folly tears it down with her own hands"
O- Write down 1-2 observations from the passage
1. what is building? productivity, moving forward to better things
2. what is tearing down? destructive thoughts and actions
A-Write down 1-2 applications from the passage
1. Act with wisdom-
- think before you speak
- Make wise choices
- be productive
- know the Lord
P- Pray over what you learned from today’s passage
Prayers for the week

Tuesday: Lord, please help me to make my children into Your disciples. Give me the grace to know how to teach them Your ways. Amen.
Wednesday: Please, Lord, lead me in a way that I may learn everything I can from you, the Ultimate Teacher. Please show me ways to pass my knowledge on to my children. Amen.
Thursday: Dear Lord, please give me the grace to make wise choices and build my home. Help me to avoid being foolish in my decision making. Amen.
Friday: Dear Lord, please help me to speak wisely to my family. Please give me the grace to be patient and think before I speak. Also, Lord, please help me to find ways to turn my idleness into productivity. Help me to build my house with You, Lord. Amen.
