Welcome to Home on Liberty Hill!
Taking care of business like a Proverbs 31 woman. Serving my husband and children, and taking steps to live a self sufficient life.
It is my life’s profound pleasure to serve my husband and children, and live the consecrated life of “A Wife of Noble Character”.
If you’ve been around for a while, you might remember that this used to be a blog dedicated to DIY projects in our home. I learned a lot from those projects, got comfortable using power tools and developed some skills that I honestly never thought I’d have. Over time it began to feel shallow and waned in importance, especially compared to this unrecognizable world that we now live in. As a result, I took a two year break from DIYs, blogging and posting on social media while I focused on my family.
During that time I became overwhelmed by all the shortages. The infant formula shortage especially took its toll on me. It was the first time in my life that I’ve ever felt that my money was worthless. It was a sobering revelation. I had enough to buy formula, but it was nearly impossible to find. Even when you could find formula, it was rationed. We asked our relatives to be on the look out wherever they went. I decided in that moment I would never allow my family to be in this position again. So I took action. I planned to take steps, big and small, towards living a life that was more self-sufficient. I craved a lifestyle free from political manipulation and independent from a fragile supply chain. I studied the forgotten ways of seed preservation, growing your own food, and stretching every household item to its fullest.
Home on Liberty Hill is a place in my heart that honors the major and minor sources of freedom in my life, Calvary’s Hill and America, land that I love.
I hope you choose to join me on this path forward. If you’d like to be a part of our Liberty Hill family, please subscribe to our blog.
A Wife of Noble Character
10 Who can find a virtuous and capable wife?
She is more precious than rubies.
11 Her husband can trust her,
and she will greatly enrich his life.
12 She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.
13 She finds wool and flax
and busily spins it.
14 She is like a merchant’s ship,
bringing her food from afar.
15 She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household
and plan the day’s work for her servant girls.
16 She goes to inspect a field and buys it;
with her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She is energetic and strong,
a hard worker.
18 She makes sure her dealings are profitable;
her lamp burns late into the night.
19 Her hands are busy spinning thread,
her fingers twisting fiber.
20 She extends a helping hand to the poor
and opens her arms to the needy.
21 She has no fear of winter for her household,
for everyone has warm[c] clothes.
22 She makes her own bedspreads.
She dresses in fine linen and purple gowns.
23 Her husband is well known at the city gates,
where he sits with the other civic leaders.
24 She makes belted linen garments
and sashes to sell to the merchants.
25 She is clothed with strength and dignity,
and she laughs without fear of the future.
26 When she speaks, her words are wise,
and she gives instructions with kindness.
27 She carefully watches everything in her household
and suffers nothing from laziness.
28 Her children stand and bless her.
Her husband praises her:
29 “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world,
but you surpass them all!”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last;
but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised.
31 Reward her for all she has done.
Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.
