Through the summer, I'm teaming up with my friend Kelli at Adventurez in ChildRearing to bring you a series of reflections and link ups on Proverbs 31 as we study along with Good Morning Girls. Get all the details on the study in the kick-off post. Daily discussion is going on in our Proverbs 31 Facebook Group. You're invited to join us too – just request to be added to the group.

Week 4 Reflections:
What's Your Field?
The Proverbs 31 Woman is quite the business woman:
She considers a field and buys it;
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
When is the last time you ventured out and purchased real estate on your own? Not me! But here's what I did do: I figured out what I enjoy doing and what God has gifted me to do. Then, I figured out how do it in a way to benefit my family financially.
That income combined with a tax refund, small amounts I squeezed out of our tight budget, and some extra money Josh was able to bring in enable us to pay off over $6,000 in debt in 3.5 months. Josh's student loan, gone. You can read the story and read the technical details of how we used You Need a Budget to track our finances. That all came about because I wanted to be a Proverbs 31 woman. I wanted to follow God and be debt-free.
Every day I work as a VA and technical assistant for multiple clients. That's my field. My profit runs my business and pays off our debt. That's my fruit.
