My wife is a God fearing woman. She worships God with the unfading beauty of a gentle and quite spirit. She constantly submits her life to Christ and is careful to do his will at all times.
She is a woman of purpose. She walks in her calling as a help meet to me; her husband and she helps in nurturing and bringing my dreams to birth. She brings up our children in the fear of the Lord therefore we call her blessed.
My wife is a submissive woman who submits to God, his word and his constituted authorities. Therefore, she has no problem submitting to me, her husband, in everything. 
She is a woman of godly character. She clothes herself with the garment of honesty, gentleness and the fruits of the spirit. She concentrates her energies on building godly virtues in her inner man. She is thus favored of God and man.
My wife has the mind of Christ and a humble spirit. She doesn’t think of herself more highly than she ought to but she gives honor to me; her husband and those around her. She chooses to serve in humility, so, she receives promotions from both God and man.
She is a virtuous woman. A woman of great worth and value. She honors the Lord with her body and presents it as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto him. Thus, as her husband, my heart safely trusts in her.
My wife’s tongue is a well of life and she knows how to speak a word in season to him that is weary. Her words are seasoned with salt and they minister grace to everyone who hears her. She speaks to me; her husband, with wisdom and to our children with kindness. She is a woman of prayer. She abides in the secret place of the most high. She walks in faith and she is full of the Holy Ghost. She births my dreams and visions in prayer and prays for our children through the circumstances of life. There is no mountain too high or valley too low that she cannot overcome in prayer.
My wife has the spirit of God in her and thus she is able to forgive every wrong. She relates to me; her husband, and all around her with the love of Christ, so she is not easily offended. Therefore, great is her peace.
She shows respect to all people at all times, irrespective of race or religion; class or status; power or position. She treats others the way God wants her to treat them and she recognizes that God is no respecter of persons. She particularly shows respect to me, her husband, and our children, thus, earning our respect.
My wife is a good woman who looks to the welfare of our children and me. She does not eat the bread of idleness. She is relentless in her efforts to see to the needs of our household and she does not engage in idle chatter and fruitless ventures.
She is content in all things so, she maintains a thankful spirit. She does not walk in covetousness because God supplies all her needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
