Living the Good Life

Living the Good Life

“Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table. Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord” (Psalm 128:1-4). This is the good life since God’s ways are good….

Being a Full-Time Homemaker Without Children

Being a Full-Time Homemaker Without Children

Written by Megan E. Saben “She watches over the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness” (Proverbs 31:27). While eagerly anticipating marriage after four years as a children’s librarian, I was repeatedly informed that although my intentions to be a homemaker from the beginning were admirable, I was sure to be bored before long. Now, months after the wedding, I haven’t had time to read the help wanted ads nor felt any inclination to do…

Oh NO! Women are Leaving the Marketplace Like Crazy!

Oh NO! Women are Leaving the Marketplace Like Crazy!

That’s right. Women are leaving the marketplace like crazy and this is “bad news” according to Jeanna Smialek from the New York Times. “The shift shows how the pandemic has become a serious threat to the meaningful progress made by women in the last economic expansion, when they accounted for a heavy share of job growth. The losses for women this time around stand in contrast to the last recession, more than a decade ago, when cuts in construction and…

Filling Your Home With Beauty

Filling Your Home With Beauty

“I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart. I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me. A froward [disobedient] heart shall depart from me: I will not know a wicked person. Whoso privily slandereth his neighbor, him will I cut off…Mine eyes shall be upon the…

Women No Longer Need to Be Tied to Their Babies?

Women No Longer Need to Be Tied to Their Babies?

A few years ago, a young woman tried to convince me that ALL mothers love their babies. “It’s just natural to love one’s baby!” No, it’s not. There’s good reasons for all of God’s commands, and He commands that older women teach young women to love their children. Today, many women don’t want children. If they get pregnant, they have no trouble aborting (murdering) their baby. They also have no problems putting their babies into daycare all day long. Here’s…

Unfulfilled and Incomplete at Home

Unfulfilled and Incomplete at Home

“Hello. I actually have a vastly different view on this. I am, and always have been, the ‘provider’ in our marriage. I make more than my husband. My husband was even a stay-at-home dad for my son’s first seven years, and I am so thankful. Even when we are both working, my income is much higher than his. “I see your point about God’s creation, and the order he established, however, there is room for the discussion about ‘times have…

Every Child Deserves to Have a Mother at Home

Every Child Deserves to Have a Mother at Home

How have women been convinced that careers and money were more important than raising one’s own children? That it’s okay for children to be raised by strangers in day care and public schools? That it’s okay for mothers to feel guilt and be exhausted at the end of every day by trying to “do it all”? That their children don’t need a full-time mother? That besides having to make money, they still have the housework and caring for their families…

Feminism Has Demeaned and Trivialized Women’s Traditional Work

Feminism Has Demeaned and Trivialized Women’s Traditional Work

Many women falsely believe that if they serve their husbands, they are doormats. One woman wrote me recently and told me that she has never picked up after her husband because she didn’t want to be a “doormat.” She has equated serving her husband with being a doormat. One woman on my Instagram wrote the following: “Women think they are being a ‘doormat’ for doing domestic tasks because for the last half a century, feminism has consistently demeaned and trivialized…

An Atheist Living Out Biblical Womanhood

An Atheist Living Out Biblical Womanhood

It’s a sad day when unbelievers are living out Christ’s commands better than believers. This is a comment that was just left on one of my videos from my YouTube channel: “I am an atheist but was raised in a very conservative Christian home. Because of this, I still have conservative morals and values. It is ridiculous how often people find it necessary to criticize my being a stay-at-home mom, non-drinking, modest dressing, and my husband being the leader of…

Working Mothers are Better for Their Children?

Working Mothers are Better for Their Children?

Women have told me that they are better mothers because they work away from their homes and children. Other women have told me their mothers were better mothers because they worked away from their homes. Could this be true? It is only true if the mothers are abusive and/or neglectful but others than this, no, these are lies they are telling themselves to justify working outside of the home. God commands mothers be home full time with their children. He…
