Who Can Find A Virtuous Women?

I have been commissioned to apply the following principles to my life. They can be found Proverbs 31:10-31. I at times struggle with each of the following principles.

There are times when sleep is more alluring than rising, while it is still dark. And rebellion seems to be a much sweeter temptation, when I disagree with my husbands decisions. But I have decided to surrender to the will of God. I have chosen to be obedient to my calling as a women, wife and mother. Below are the standards that I use as a measuring stick for a life of Godly excellence.
