Growing up, I’ve been fortunate enough to have multiple role models and godly women to look up to in my life.

I’ve witnessed the way they speak to others, the way they not only talk the talk but walk the walk, and the way they carry themselves daily. It’s something I’ve always taken notice of and want to apply to my own life.

I thought about the characteristics and qualities about these women that make them stand out among the rest. There are 5 habits in particular that are not only backed up by scripture but easy to apply to your own life!

  1. She puts God above all else.

Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you.”

Putting God before school, relationships, our own desires, and so much more is so important. Once we learn to put God as our highest priority, everything else falls into place.

  1. She makes time for herself.

Matthew 11:28 says, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Setting apart time for yourself and for God is something you need to do in order to grow closer to Him and find out who you are in Christ!

Set apart a half an hour a day or more to give your undivided attention to God. It’s important to discover your true identity in Christ and in Christ alone!

  1. She treats her body like a temple.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 says, “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies.  

Ladies! We should learn to respect ourselves and our bodies. God created us so uniquely and perfectly, and we should use our bodies to honor Him! What an amazing way to glorify him and his creations.

  1. She’s content in her singleness.

1 Corinthians 7:32,35 says, “I would like you to be free from concern… I am saying this for your own good, not to restrict you, but that you may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord.” 

Oftentimes, singleness is made out to be such a bad thing. But when we’re single and focusing solely on ourselves, we can work on self-growth and strengthening our relationship with God!

Consider it a gift. For most of us, there’s only so many years left of true singleness. Take advantage of them and be truly content in the waiting!

  1. She practices selflessness.

Philippians 2:4 says, “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”

When we learn to put the needs of others before our own desires, our attitude completely changes. We learn to extend a hand and help those we never thought we could’ve.

What other habits have you noticed in the lives of godly women? There are so many more qualities and characteristics that you can take note of to adapt to your own life!

Practice each of these habits daily and see what God does in your life!

Real Life Application: Be Nice to Everyone

When I was little, my parents would always remind me: be nice to EVERYONE.  Still to this day they remind me.  I used to have trouble understanding this, “Why should I be nice to someone that treats me awful?  I’ll never have to see them again once I leave this school or quit this job”; but as I started growing up and maturing…it all made sense.Chelsea Crockett- character

Life has a funny way of working out.  Picture this.  Remember that boy that used to pick on you?  Or that nerd you used to make fun of?  Rewind 15 years later.  He’s your boss at your new job!  He’s turned his life around, is good to others, and has a Godly heart.  The last impression you made on your new boss was not a good one!  Don’t you wish you would have been nicer back in the day?

You always run the risk of running into your past.  Why not make it a good one?  If someone is mean to you…pray for them.  If someone is picking on you, don’t retaliate, but instead keep your head up.  See someone getting picked on?  Befriend them!  While you don’t have to be best friends with the people that treat you badly, it’s always important to be the bigger person.  Be nice…to EVERYONE.

XOXO,

Are there certain traits you HAVE to have in a boyfriend? When you have sleepovers with friends, do you dream about the perfect guy and discuss everything you want him to be? If so, you are the average teenage girl J. I read a recent study about the top traits that women want in the guy they date, and they really aren’t surprising! In fact, most of them were on MY list of traits I want to see in my guy. Here is a list of the top character, personality, and practical skill traits females want in a man.

 

TOP CHARACTER TRAITS: FAITHFULNESS, DEPENDABILITY, AND KINDNESS

When it comes to the character of your guy, most women say faithfulness is a top priority. Rightflully so! You want to know that he is there for you and only you, and that he will stick with you through the tough times. You also want to know that he is dependable and that when he says he is going to do something, he does it! You want him to be responsible. Lastly, you want him to be kind. I know that it is sometimes tempting to fall for the “tough guy” or “bad boy”, but as you grow up kindness wins. Most girls want a man who will be sweet to her AND her mother!

TOP PERSONALITY TRAITS: SENSE OF HUMOR, PASSION, AND INTELLEGENCE

I don’t know about you, but I love when I can laugh with my guy. Having a sense of humor makes life so much more fun! Passion is another must. You want a guy who is passionate about something, whether it is playing the piano, playing basketball, or evenrelationship-perspectives cooking! Another personality trait that women swoon over is intelligence. Nothing beats a guy who is great at problem solving!

TOP PRACTICAL SKILLS: LISTENING, ROMANCING, HELPING

Studies have shown that women love a guy who listens. This is a no-brainer! Girls feel safe and loved when a guy will sit there and let them vent and listen to their problems. Romancing is a given, we love a guy who can show his soft side and can sweep her off her feet! And the last one, helping. If he can help me cook a dinner, clean my room, or run errands, he is on the fast track to winning my heart! Who agrees?!

XOXO, Chels
