The Real Cost of Working Mothers

The Real Cost of Working Mothers

One woman named Dr. Jennifer Rubin tweeted this recently: “This is the daycare costs for two children in Seattle during the month of July. Please tell me how grad students and postdocs are able to afford childcare.” The cost is $5,922.00. Then many responded to her about other countries giving mothers up to two years of paid leave and free childcare. Jennifer also retweeted this by Dr. Sarah Odell: “I would like to remind everyone that while childcare is important…

Godly Women are Submissive and Home is Their Priority

Godly Women are Submissive and Home is Their Priority

The other night, I listened to the greatest sermon on biblical womanhood that I have ever listened to by Pastor Voddie Baucham. He gave it nine years ago, and it is so powerful! He first exhorted young men to only marry a woman who is submissive. “She must be submissive. Period.” He taught that submission is about order, not value. Men and women have different functions and roles. However, submission is voluntary. A husband can’t arm wrestle his wife into…

Nail the Enemy by Nancy Campbell

Nail the Enemy by Nancy Campbell

Written By Nancy Campbell at Above Rubies Do you remember Jael in the Bible? God called her “blessed above all women who lived in tents.” The Kenites lived in tents in those days. Why was she given such honor? Because she destroyed the enemy who came to her home. You can read the whole story in Judges 4:17-23 and 5:24-31. God gave the Israelites victory over the Canaanites who had held them in slavery for 20 years. Captain Sisera ran…

Keeper of the Springs

Keeper of the Springs

This was written by Peter Marshall in 1949. He was Chaplain to the United States Senate in 1947 and 1948. There never has been a time when there was a greater need for Keepers of the Springs, or when there were more polluted springs to be cleansed. If the home fails, the country is doomed. The breakdown of the home life and influence will mark the breakdown of the nation. If the Keepers of the Springs desert their posts or…

Must Men Help With Housework to Avoid Divorce?

Must Men Help With Housework to Avoid Divorce?

In an article by New York Post called Millennial men want 1950s housewives after they have kids, the author Jennifer Wright wrote: “Even in normal times, women spend approximately two hours more per day tending to domestic work than their partners. A 2013 research paper by economics professors Francine D. Blau and Lawrence M. Kahn claimed that ‘modern men do not adjust the amount of time they dedicate to housework based on their wives’ employment status.’ “‘Professional working mothers who…

Housework Does Not Demean a Woman

Housework Does Not Demean a Woman

Written By Owen Strachan Housework isn’t “below” a woman or “demeaning” to her. Housework doesn’t “squander her gifts.” We often hear such language today, even from professing evangelicals who say they believe texts like Proverbs 31 and 1 Timothy 5. But sadly, a good number of professing Christians are frankly embarrassed by the Bible. Instead of flatly affirming biblical truth, they’ll subject it to death by caveat, telling you 19 things they don’t mean about biblical womanhood before they say…

Can You Afford to Be Home Full time?

Can You Afford to Be Home Full time?

Written By Lindsay Harold When the topic of women staying home is brought up, the most common argument against it is that women today have to work in order to pay the bills. That’s often true or at least they believe it is. Yet many of those bills exist because they are working outside the home. For example, if the wife stays home, they don’t need daycare, a second car, her work clothes, gas money for her commute, eating out…

More Mothers at Home Makes for Worse???

More Mothers at Home Makes for Worse???

Jill Filipovic, who has 162,000 followers on Twitter, tweeted this recently: “More mothers at home makes for worse, more sexist men who see women as mommies and helpmeets. Men with stay-at-home wives are more sexist than men with working wives; they don’t assess women’s workplace contributions fairly; and they are less likely to hire and promote women. Stay-at-home mothers are psychologically and emotionally worse off than working mothers by just about every measure, from depression to anxiety to anger; they…

Preparing For the Future

Preparing For the Future

Many are worried about the future these days. We have a wicked tyrant as our president with an evil agenda to destroy America. It can all seem so frightening and overwhelming, can’t it? Michael Pearl wrote four great articles years ago on How to Survive the Coming Apocalypse. “Now, it seems like I have gotten away from my subject of preparing for hard times, but I haven’t. I just want to testify that the dark curtain coming down over our…

Homemakers are Free to Be Their Own Boss

Homemakers are Free to Be Their Own Boss

A woman wrote this on Twitter recently: “Women who are ‘against feminism’ – hand over your car, bank account, credit cards, retirement fund to your closest male relative. Don’t vote. Quit your job/close your business, delete social media accounts. No more Etsy shop or MLM. No? Then support the women’s rights movement.” Maggie Price responded to her this way: “I don’t understand this woman’s post at all. I don’t have any need for any sort of side business, because my…
