“if you can find a truly good wife, she is worth more than precious gems! Her husband can trust her, and she will richly satisfy his needs.  She will not hinder him but help him all her life. …. She gets up before dawn to prepare breakfast for her household and plans the day’s work… She is energetic, and a hard worker,…. She is a woman of strength and dignity and has no fear of old age. …. She watches carefully all that goes on throughout her household and is never lazy… Charm can be deceptive and beauty doesn’t last, but a woman who fears and reverences God shall be greatly praised….” Proverbs 31:10-30 LB


Idella loved Jesus and going to church which she did as long as she was able to go.
