The Lord used Ann to bring healing to her blended family. She was a peacemaker and loved everyone as her own. 2. She was a good wife. Her husband knew that she was trustworthy and faithful. Ann enriched his life, being a comfort and an encouragement to him. She brought him much joy and love all the days of their life together. 3. She was a homemaker. Ann took excellent care of her home and family. Every holiday, birthday, or special event was a celebration of family, fun and good food. 4. She was charitable. Ann was generous. She shared what she had from her abundance, giving money to the less fortunate or those in need, giving of her time and talents to benefit others. Ann was always ready to help anyone when she saw they had a need, never expecting anything back in return. 5. She was prepared for the future. A Proverbs 31 Woman rejoices over the future because she makes sure that her family is ready for it.
