The Country Song Wife

Growing up in church I always heard about the Proverbs 31 wife... She is a precious woman who knows what it means to be kind, trustworthy, a good steward of her faith, husband, and family while providing compassionate, generous help to those around her. I grew up thinking that's the only way to be a good wife. And maybe, that is. 

But, I've spent a lifetime listening to some very sweet souls sing of what makes them love their women. And, I want to be the spunky, God-loving, boot-wearing wife they love.

You'll be my soft and sweet, I'll be your strong and steady. You'll be my glass of wine, I'll be your shot of whiskey. (Blake Shelton)

Saved two months, bought a little diamond. Tonight's the night, feels like perfect timin'.

  5. This is precious! LOOOOVE it!!! I am totally borrowing it, but of course linking and giving complete credit to you. This is too cute not to share!!!

  6. This is so special and precious! You will DEFINITELY be that wife! x

  7. This is completely adorable. Clearly, you are going to be *that* kind of wife :)

  8. Amber, you're gonna be a great wife! You've got such a kind, compassionate heart and are sweet to everyone you meet! I love this post :)

  9. What a sweet post with such beautiful pictures!

  10. i totally want to live in a country song too. and isn't mrs. laura beth the CUTEST?!


    Love LB!! She's awesome.

  12. As a country girl- I kind of really love this!!

  13. I absolutely love this! There is nothing wrong with shooting to be a country song wife.

  14. Love it!!! You sure don't find any country divas like Miranda Lambert twerking!!! Country girls have class!!! :) I love this Amber!!! I know this took some work! Good Job girl!!!

  15. I've honestly kind of sort of felt like I've been failing at this whole wife thing because I lack some things that the Proverbs 31 wife possesses.


    She's a Saturday out on the town
    And a church girl on Sunday
    She's a cross around her neck
    And a cuss word 'cause it's Monday

    But I sure do have a whole lot of love in my heart :)

  16. This gives me chills, I'm so in love with it and all these amazing songs! Seriously it is so perfect!

  17. Absolutely loved this!!!

  18. ISN'T SHE SO DAMN CUTE!?! She is. That's the right answer.

  19. This country girl might be more of a hybrid because I find myself in some not-so-classy messes! :)

  20. The Proverbs 31 wife stresses me out more than anything. Have you read Rachel Held Evans' A Year of Biblical Womanhood? --> It sounds uppity, but turns the understanding of a "biblical wife" on its head from what we've been taught. And, it's such a freeing breath of fresh air.

  21. Thanks for stopping by Elizabeth! You're so right, who doesn't love a country wife!?! :)

  22. Aww I love all these sweet songs! And I love 'Dear John' too (well actually any Nicholas Sparks books)
