The Homemaker’s Creed By Betty Crocker

The Homemaker’s Creed By Betty Crocker

“In the Betty Crocker Cookbooks of old, you may be fortunate enough to find a hidden creed slipped inside. It is beautiful words written from a fictitious Betty Crocker (though keep in mind that a real-life virtuous woman did write it!) in the 1920’s. It was meant to inspire homemakers from long ago to join the ‘Home Legion’ and declare ‘Good Homemaking for a Better World.’ Oh how the times have changed (insert sorrowful sigh)… but doesn’t that sound lovely…

Learn From Noah: Day In and Day Out

Learn From Noah: Day In and Day Out

Written By Nancy Campbell at Above Rubies Year after year, Noah did the same old thing—hammered, nailed, and kept on building his ark. Bible commentators suggest different lengths of time for Noah to build the ark, but most believe it was between 50 to 80 years of his life! He did not have time to do all the things that everyone else was doing. He just kept on slogging and being faithful, doing the same thing every day for all…

Feminism Was Created By an Outside Enemy

Feminism Was Created By an Outside Enemy

“My ex-wife and I were both raised to believe that men and women should be equal, and both partners should be working. It was detrimental to our children and relationship.” This was a comment left on my video “Women are No Longer Marriage Material.” Most children are being raised to believe that men and women should be equal and as “partners.” They should both be working outside of the home. This makes life much more difficult on everyone when there…

What If Your Husband Wants You to Work in the Workforce?

What If Your Husband Wants You to Work in the Workforce?

Every single time I write on women being keepers at home, I am asked the question, “What if my husband wants me to work outside of the home?” God has made it clear that He wants women to be “keepers at home” so they don’t blaspheme His word. “To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed” (Titus 2:5). He commands younger women to “marry, bear children, guide…

THIS is Why I Will Continue to Teach Women to Be Keepers at Home!

THIS is Why I Will Continue to Teach Women to Be Keepers at Home!

On Instagram last week, I shared this: Here are the answers I received. I wept as I read them: Struggle with poor self-esteem. Seeking love everywhere I could and being rejected, because I was too needy. I definitely search for mother figures in women I meet. (a response from a man) I was a wild teenager: alcohol, sex, and lying. My parents were clueless. My mother wasn’t there for any of my things. I now homeschool and am at all…

Home Duties Ought To Fill the Minds and Hearts of Wives

Home Duties Ought To Fill the Minds and Hearts of Wives

“To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” (Titus 2:5) There’s a lot of argument as to what “keepers at home” is in this day and age. Here’s how the men of old interpreted “keepers at home” to mean: “Home duties, cares, pleasures, sacrifices of self—these God-appointed duties ought to fill the mind and the heart of the young wife. There should be no desire, no attempt,…

Make Time For the Most Important Things in Life

Make Time For the Most Important Things in Life

Written By Ken Alexander If you are like most of us, your life’s schedule is very full and overflowing. There is always something tugging at you that needs to be done, and many of us feel a twinge of guilt when we just sit and relax, read a book, or veg in front of the TV. Yet, we seem to know how important taking time for ourselves is, so “What gets left undone?” A wise, old law professor started his…

The Modern Super Woman Compared to the Godly Woman

The Modern Super Woman Compared to the Godly Woman

In 1996, John MacArthur preached a series of sermons called The Fulfilled Family. In my opinion, his two sermons on God’s Pattern For Wives are my favorite sermons of his on this topic. Here are some quotes from Part 2 on this series. “What kind of woman is the prototype of the ‘90s woman? What is the modern super-woman supposed to be? Maybe something like this: she works, builds her own career, demands equal pay, refuses to submit to her…

Being a Keeper at Home After the Kids Fly the Coop

Being a Keeper at Home After the Kids Fly the Coop

There’s nothing I wanted to do more than be a keeper at home as I was growing up and before marriage. Thankfully, I became one after my second child was born 36 years ago. Many women ask me if they should go back to work once their children are raised. I sure don’t think so! I am available to help my family and others because I am home. One of my daughters and her family needed a ride to the…

She Regrets Not Having a Career

She Regrets Not Having a Career

All she wanted to be was a homemaker so after she married, she stayed home full time even before having children but now regrets it. She wishes she would have finished college, so she could have in a steady income, paid down debt, and saved more money. She wished she had a career to fall back on. She allowed “faulty theologies and ideologies rule over reality and reason.” First of all, she wished she would have finished college, but then…
