Building a Quiet and Gentle Spirit

"Unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, 
is of great worth in God's sight."
I Peter 3:4b
What does this verse mean to you?  Does it mean as women we are to be quiet and meek?  I think God finds beauty in a spirit that is under control at all times.  A quiet spirit is one that is true grace under pressure.  When the world throws all it can throw at us, would others see beauty in our response to the stress and unanswered questions?

I want to build a faith that is gentle and quiet, that no matter what circumstances I am facing, others will see a spirit under control and depending on God for every need and every answer.
