9 SECRETS OF A WISE WOMAN 

Bisi Adewale 

Every wise woman buildeth her house, but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands” (Proverbs 14:1)

Though, when young men are looking for wives; they do emphasize outward appearance than inner development, wisdom and intellectual prowess. But after the wedding; all men expect their wives to be very wise and intelligent. So it will be right if say, it takes WISDOM to keep a man that BEAUTY won for you. It takes a good attitude to maintain a man that your gift got you. So sister, GET WISDOM!

“Wisdom is the principal things, therefore get wisdom and with all thy getting;

get understanding” (Proverbs 4:7)

 Your nagging can not win him, you can’t get his attention by fighting, but this you can do by wisdom.

Your academics attainment cannot build a great marriage for you, your beauty can remove agony from matrimony, but your wisdom can put harmony into that matrimony and turn your marriage around forever.
