Proverbs 31:16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

Proverbs 31:18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

Proverbs 31:20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
Greetings, sister. In regards to the words "keepers at home", I was discussing those verses in Proverbs 31 with my wife just last night. I would also add this verse:

Proverbs 31:24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
