The Strawman Argument For Female Nurses and Teachers

The Strawman Argument For Female Nurses and Teachers

Undoubtedly, every time I teach women to be keepers at home, women will cry, “What about female nurses and teachers? We need them!” This is a strawman argument since there will always be female nurses and teachers. Few women read what I write and even fewer want to do what God commands of them, therefore, there is no need to fret that there will be no more female nurses or teachers. Many women believe that being a teacher or a…

Practical Skills to Know Before Marriage

Practical Skills to Know Before Marriage

Our culture doesn’t prepare young women for marriage. The churches and the schools don’t. Most mothers aren’t preparing their daughters for marriage and neither are the older women in the churches, so most women go into marriage knowing little about being a wife, mother, and running a home. I asked the women in the chat room what practical skills they wish they knew before marriage and this is how they answered. They wish they had learned how to cook healthy…

The Epitome of the Slave Mindset in America

The Epitome of the Slave Mindset in America

On yesterday’s post, a woman who used the name “Baker” tried to convince me that her family is doing much better that she is no longer home full time but is in the workforce for 30 hours a week. She felt that God “gave her the wisdom to to see that she has more capacity than just working at home.” Of course, she used the Proverbs 31 woman as her excuse. Here is how one woman responded to her: Baker’s…

She Wasn’t There For Her Son

She Wasn’t There For Her Son

Written by a man who wants to remain anonymous. “A wife’s place is in the home.” “Wives should be keepers at home.” For the greater part of my life, I was always ambiguous and uncommitted to what these sayings mean. When I married my wife, we were both of the opinion that husbands and wives were just equal partners in “the contract,” and we never sat down together with a premarital pastoral counselor to hash out exactly what this contract…

There’s No Place Like Home!

There’s No Place Like Home!

“When a child leaves their home to stay with friends it is common for them to be homesick. In fact, homesickness can be debilitating and can be painful for some children, even as they get older. We’ve all felt the sickening feeling of homesickness and understand that it is a vey real thing. “Sometimes we can feel homesick even when we are at home! I think that’s a homesickness for our eternal home. Home is very much tied to our…

The Proverbs 31 Woman Was a Career Woman?

The Proverbs 31 Woman Was a Career Woman?

Yes, this is what many want you to believe. They want you to believe that the Proverbs 31 woman was a career woman. They believe she sewed things and was often away from her home to sell them. They want to make you believe she was a realtor who bought and sold property. They also want you to believe she was an agriculturist. I have even heard more than these but these are the main ones. Let’s look at all…

God Ordained Homemaking For You

God Ordained Homemaking For You

Young women are made to feel that being a homemaker is not enough. They need to be involved in the church ministry. They need to find some way to make money since their worth seems to be tied to a paycheck. They need to be on the go. They need to be anywhere but home. God has ordained homemaking for you, women. It’s right where God wants you to be! “He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to…

Do I Make Working Mothers Feel Like They are Not Good Enough?

Do I Make Working Mothers Feel Like They are Not Good Enough?

“You sure do know how to make working mothers feel like they aren’t good enough. My child is thriving and because I work, she has a roof over her head, clothes on her back, and food in her belly. I don’t see anyone else doing this for her!” I receive these types of comments often from working mothers. I asked the women in the chat room how they would respond to comments such as these. Lindsay: “It just shows how…

Learning Contentment with a Simple Life at Home

Learning Contentment with a Simple Life at Home

Written by Jessica Perez “Why do people have such a problem with a simple life? I don’t mean simple in the way of going off grid, living off the land, being a minimalist, etc. I mean, why does everyone feel like they need to raise their children to be world changers and overachievers? “What is wrong with just wanting to live a quiet life, serving those whom God has put in our immediate care and circle? I am content to…

Yes, You Can Live on One Income

Yes, You Can Live on One Income

Many women try to convince me that it’s simply impossible for women to be keepers at home due to the cost of living these days. Every family needs two incomes, they proclaim. There’s a video called The Homemaker’s Biggest Obligation that I encourage you all to watch about living frugally at home. Here is a  great response by Lindsay Harold to the claim that women can’t afford to be home full time. The biggest barrier to women staying at home…
