Resisting the Bread of Idleness


“An excellent wife who can find?”  (Prov. 31:10)

Hopefully, you’ll find a few of them right here.  At least, you’ll find a few women who are striving for that title.  Our blogging venture begins as a way to share recipes among ourselves and with others; however, I trust it will continue as a way to remind us to serve our families diligently and willingly as the Proverb goes on to describe.  “She… works with willing hands” (Prov. 31:13).  For this reason, we have christened our recipe blog, “Cooking with Willing Hands.” 

On “Cooking with Willing Hands,” you will find delicious recipes that our ladies have cooked and served successfully to their families and friends.  Some will have been passed down through generations.  Some will have been created by our ladies.  And others will be great finds that we want to share with each other and with you. 

I eagerly look forward to trying the recipes shared here, but I also look forward to the examples of my sisters in Christ in how they care for their families.  As they work in their homes, they are like the Proverbs 31 wife who “looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness” (Prov. 31:27).  Their efforts will be an inspiration as I also pursue those goals.

Finally, I ask you to read our recipes and enjoy them with your families.  Please take time to provide us with feedback.  But more importantly, as we strive to bring glory to God, I encourage you to work with willing hands, look well to the ways of your household, and resist the bread of idleness.
