You can never fully understand the complete measure of your power as a woman:  you are, after all, in the image of God.  But, it is in you, the ability is there, to create the difference for your husband and your future together.  It is by becoming your best self  . . .  A man cannot know what your influence on him should be or will be. In the beginning you cannot know your ability  . . .  but as you move ahead with integrity and try to create a useful life it slowly happens.

From Scripture you can get a clear picture in your mind of how to proceed:  with boldness and courage from a wise and quiet spirit.  You offer your husband (and household) an advantage … you are his advantage!  A wise person beside him, like you, is his advantage

You nudge him closer to a useful, stable future … and at the same moment … yourself.  He is only a man, but with your affirmation of his strengths and gifts, he is likely to succeed.

The heart of her husband safely trusts in her; she will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.”  (Pro 31:11)

In the deepest part of her spirit and soul, she is God’s person and his “other self”.  The heart of her husband safely trusts in her because she is trustworthy from her core.  Not perfect, but her intentions are.
