Book Description

If you’ve ever wanted to tear the 31st chapter of Proverbs out of your bible this book is for you.

She is a wife, mom, business owner, seamstress, she serves the needy, speaks life and wisdom, and seems to be a major overachiever, perfectionist type.

Except that…she’s not.

Come along and journey with Amy and take a look at the real woman of Proverbs 31. She isn’t as perfect as she seems. In fact, I think she is a lot like you and me.

In Pursuit of Proverbs 31, Amy Bayliss gives you a biblical view of the scriptures that are found tucked away at the end of the book of wisdom. With Southern charm and raw, real emotions she’ll tug at the core of your being. She’ll give you a new perspective and inspire you to pursue Proverbs 31; she’ll inspire you to pursue Jesus.

5.0 out of 5 stars A treasure worth visiting again and again! February 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
In Pursuit of Proverbs 31, I believe Amy Bayliss has truly captured the heart of God for His daughters. She has studied the Proverbs 31 woman extensively. Reading this book feels as if she takes you by the hand and guides you into her treasured discoveries. Step by step, Amy inspires a deeper relationship with Our Father. Her words encourage you to delve into the scriptures to uncover nuggets of wisdom for yourself. The captured wisdom challenges you to break free of preconceived misconceptions and become the unique individual God intended. I thoroughly enjoyed my journey through these pages, and I know this is one of those books that I will revisit again and again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Are you Noble? August 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Let me say that this was a very invigorating read. You can tell she has done her research,, spent plenty of time in prayer and contemplation in regards to this portion of the book. She writes so very well too - it is inspirational, and directs you to look at things in a way that we may not have before. II did run across a number of things that I didn't agree with due to my more conservative nature and faith but I cannot say that it changed how I felt about this book. Either way this was a very valuable read for any woman seeking to expand and better herself in her walk with the Lord.

In any case, there was a boldness to her writing, an honesty that made this well worth the time I spent in study. I loved the part where she said "When I wake up in the morning, before I even brush my teeth, I say good morning to Him. When I see a beautiful landscape while driving, I make sure I praise Him for it. When I need to make a decision I ask Him to help me. When I realize I need money for a bill, I ask Him to supply it and then thank Him for it. When it dawns on me that I messed up, I immediately ask for His forgiveness. I ask Him to keep me away from tempting situations, to grant us safe trips, to keep Satan and his cohorts away, and when I am studying His word I ask him to explain to me what I don't yet understand." Quotes like this are throughout the book showing that she doesn't just have a faith and talk about it but that she also strives to live it. Let us all be able to show our faith as she does.

There were many other wonderful attributes to this book. I do believe this is an excellent purchase, not just for the resources she provides within.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great bible study! October 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
"Yet even in the midst of wearing the Superwoman cape I echoed the questions that have plagued the hearts and minds of so many: Why can't I get it right? How can I find more time to get it all done? Why isn't God helping me?"

I love, no I ADORE, reading books and bible studies, but I will tell you that the topic of Proverbs 31 has always intimidated me and I know I'm not alone. The Perfect Woman described there is unattainable (or so it seems). That's why Amy's study really is a breath of fresh air! She reminds us from the get-go that Only Christ can completely fulfill Scripture. He did so on the cross. That was His job. My job is to accept that and follow Him. We aren't expected to be all that is written in Proverbs 31 and yet, in our imperfections we are still worth "more than rubies."

I needed to hear that. Don't you?

This study is broken into ten chapters, and at the end of every chapter, Amy lists Focused Thoughts, Scripture for Memory, Essential (points made), Useful, and a Bonus. Each chapter takes Proverbs 31 and breaks it down into understandable, usable and attainable pieces of study. I love Chapter 4's reminder that "We should be praying for our husband daily. They face so many fleshly temptations and as their helpmate it is our responsibility to cover them in prayer" and Chapter 6's directive that "We must parent on purpose". And, I'm a huge fan of saving money and resources, so Chapter 8 - Pocket Full of Resources just speaks to me.

So, if you're looking for a personal or group bible study, I wholeheartedly recommend "Pursuit of Proverbs 31"!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Get this book! March 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow, where do I begin???

If you ever wanted to have a heartfelt conversation with Amy Bayliss, here's your chance. Amy opens here heart to share what God had taught, shown, and told her over the last few years. She lays it all out there- allowing herself to be vulnerable by sharing personal stories, struggles, trials, and accomplishments.

I find it quite easy to relate to Amy as a fellow woman seeking this seemingly elusive Proverbs 31 woman. How refreshing to finally have this "woman" explained as more than just "someone to emulate."

This is more than a book, more than a story, more than a "chat". It is a challenge to leave your failures and fretting in the past and make changes that will improve your future from day one.

Amy gives practical, down-to-earth advice, tips, and suggestions. She shares what works for her and encourages her readers to find what works for them.

I read this book straight through twice. I will now be reading this book a third time, this time REALLY digging in and journaling my journey.

Thank you, Amy, for allowing your readers to have a genuine and real visit with you! I only wished you lived closer so we could sit on the porch, share a pitcher of sweet tea, and get to know each other more! You have inspired me to take the necessary steps to put into action that which I've felt led to do for God and have not done for far too long. Thank you.
