Mothers Who Have Chosen to Be the CEO of Their Own Families

Mothers Who Have Chosen to Be the CEO of Their Own Families

Written By Elizabeth Shine I’m not a mother, and at 48 I’m unlikely to become one. My whole professional life, I’ve been leaning in. It’s wasn’t until things went badly wrong that I realized the human-capital value of a group of women modern society tends to ignore or  dismiss, stay-at-home-moms. As a global management professional, I’ve lived and traveled all over the world. In 2015, my life exploded. On a dark April afternoon in Dubai, a perfect storm of issues…

Do I Condemn Mothers Who Are NOT Keepers at Home?

Do I Condemn Mothers Who Are NOT Keepers at Home?

“What I find appalling is you condemning women that don’t have the privilege to be keepers at home. Most moms have a difficult time with self-esteem and you are adding to this anxiety. What about single moms? Are they less of a woman because they have to support their family?” A woman wrote this comment to me on Facebook last week but I hear similar sentiments often. Do I condemn single mothers or mothers who can’t be home full time…

Her Career Was Worth It?

Her Career Was Worth It?

There’s an article written by a Christian woman who went to college and had a good career before getting married. Once she had children, she decided to stay home full time and raise her children. When asked if going to college and having a career were worth it, since she’s now a full-time keeper at home, she answers, “Yes!” She then rattled a bunch of reasons why, yet her husband is still working hard to pay off her large student…

The Modern Day Proverbs 31 Woman

The Modern Day Proverbs 31 Woman

The Proverbs 31 woman was not a real person that once lived. She’s an example of a woman who the King’s mother told him to look for in a wife. There are no commands to us in Proverbs 31, but this woman is a good example for us in many ways. I am going to match the attributes of this woman to the commands given to us for today that are clearly spelled out in the New Testament so we…

Biting on the Feminist Lie

Biting on the Feminist Lie

The Facebook page called Fix the Family-Citadel Catholic Media shared one of my handwritten posts about women being keepers at home. No, I am not a Catholic but this site teaches almost everything I do about mothers being home for their children full time which I fully appreciate and they clearly understand the harm that feminism has done to the family unit. Here is a comment they received from my post which is similar to the many comments I receive…

Your Happiness Does Not Negate the Word of God

Your Happiness Does Not Negate the Word of God

Many believe they can have it all. Women are not immune to this thinking: believing that they can have a career, a marriage, and children without someone or something suffering. Too often those who suffer the most are those who “gain the whole world but lose their soul.” They lose the things that are of eternal value for nothing but wood, hay and stubble that are to be burned up in the end. A life well lived will not be…

Why Aren’t Women’s Ministries Teaching Biblical Womanhood?

Why Aren’t Women’s Ministries Teaching Biblical Womanhood?

The first Women’s Bible Studies began in the mid-1800s by Katherine Bushnell when women began watering down the language in the Bible towards women. The way they by-passed the limited role of women in the churches was by focusing upon the verses about the equality of men and women, then pointing out those women in the Bible who had leadership roles (all from the OT: Deborah, Ruth, and Esther). They even wrote a Woman’s Bible in the late 1800s. Thus,…

The Christian Woman’s Legitimate Sphere of Action and Influence – The Home

The Christian Woman’s Legitimate Sphere of Action and Influence – The Home

Studying the Word of God is something I love to do. Each time I read it, even with those passages that I have read many times, I learn something new. God’s Word is definitely a twoedged sword! The KJV uses the word “suffer” in this verse which means to allow or permit: “But I suffer not a woman to teach, not to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence” (1 Timothy 2:12). Once in a while, I…

Career Grandmothers Make Young Mothers’ Lives Harder

Career Grandmothers Make Young Mothers’ Lives Harder

You are probably asking, “How in the world do career grandmothers make young mothers’ lives harder?” I will tell you. Many people will encourage older women that after their children are grown, they are free to do as they please. They can finally do something for themselves! They can go back to college, pursue careers, travel, or do whatever they want but is this God’s will for them? In 1 Timothy 5:10, we are told what older widows (those over…

Men Have Made Our Lives Better, Not Feminism

Men Have Made Our Lives Better, Not Feminism

Recently, I wrote a post about the ease with which homemaking is today because of the inventions of men. As expected, I received many angry comments from women telling me about the things women have invented. There are sure a lot of angry women out there who don’t want to acknowledge and appreciate all men have accomplished! While researching what men and women have invented and achieved (which men win hands down; no, there is NO comparison), I found an…
