The Benefits of Being a Keeper at Home

The Benefits of Being a Keeper at Home

Many women have asked me about being a keeper at home once their children are grown up and gone. Should they go out and get a job? I love being a keeper at home in my older age. I am available to help my children with their children at any time. I get to cuddle with my grandchildren, feed them good food, and watch them play outside. I have the privilege of holding my brand new grandbaby and helping my…

When Women Didn’t Leave Their Kitchens

When Women Didn’t Leave Their Kitchens

This is a fake advertisement for Hardees made to mock the gender roles of the past. It states, “Women don’t leave the kitchen! We all know a woman’s place is in the home, cooking a man a delicious meal. But if you are still enjoying the bachelor’s life and don’t have a little miss waiting on you, then come down to Hardee’s for something sloppy and hastily prepared.” God tells us a woman’s place is in the home. It’s the…

Mothers Forgetting Their Nursing Babies

Mothers Forgetting Their Nursing Babies

“Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee” (Isaiah 49:15). Many women forget their nursing babies. They get up each morning and hustle to get out the door for work. They drop their babies off at daycare where a daycare worker feeds the baby a bottle. After spending all day at work, they pick up their babies from daycare…

Feminism Forgot the Obviousness of Women’s Biology

Feminism Forgot the Obviousness of Women’s Biology

Joseph Spurgeon had a picture of himself with another man at a table with a sign that read, “Feminism Ruins Everything. Change My Mind.” Of course, a lively discussion ensued and feminists were outraged. A woman named Zoe wrote, “I’m sorry you feel this way. Feminism is what gave women the right to vote. Isn’t that a beautiful thing? Bringing women up, in the eyes of the government, to the same level of their male counterparts? What was ruined there?”…

Should Older Women Have Careers?

Should Older Women Have Careers?

Women frequently ask me if it’s okay for them to go back to work when all of their children are raised. I can’t find anywhere scripturally where this is a command for them! In fact, older widows are to be known for doing these things: “Well reported of for good works; if she has brought up children, if she has lodged strangers, if she has washed the saints’ feet, if she has relieved the afflicted, if she has diligently followed…

Leaving Behind Her Husband and Children

Leaving Behind Her Husband and Children

There’s an article in The Washington Post written by a woman in her 60s who shared her thoughts about being a wife and mother at home. “In Anne Tyler’s ‘Ladder of Years,’ Delia Grinstead, the 40-year-old protagonist, walks along the beach in her bathing suit with $500 tucked into her tote as she leaves behind her husband and three children. Reading this I wondered, ‘How could she do that? — Why would she do that?’ “Except it wasn’t a single…

Mothers Who are Blaspheming the Word of God

Mothers Who are Blaspheming the Word of God

This post was written by Scott Brown who is director of the National Center for Family-Integrated Churches and a pastor at Hope Baptist Church. Can anyone tell me why ALL pastors aren’t preaching this? The Bible says that when a woman refuses to be a keeper at home she causes the Word of God to be blasphemed. This means that she creates conditions that discredit the Word of God. It gives people reason to rail against God. Instead of glorifying…

Few Teach Women to Be Keepers at Home

Few Teach Women to Be Keepers at Home

Being a wife and mother are not valued in this culture, no, not even among many Christians. They teach their daughters to pursue higher education and careers which often keep them far from God’s will for them. I have been reading a book called “The Golden Gems of Life.” It was written in 1880. The authors had no problems teaching women that their calling is in the home as a wife and mother. This is rare indeed. Here are a…

Opposite of the Modest Housewife Who Stays at Home

Opposite of the Modest Housewife Who Stays at Home

“A woman with the attire of a harlot, and subtil of heart. She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house” (Proverbs 7:10,11). Unfortunately, these verses describe too many women today – an adulteress, a whore, or a “strange” or “evil” woman, as the Bible calls them and are completely opposite to what God calls women to be. She dresses with the “attire of a harlot.” Gill’s Exposition: “She dresses with showy gaudy garments; the word signifies…

A Recovering Career Woman

A Recovering Career Woman

The following post is from a comment made by Dana on my post “They Want Me to Stop Teaching Women to Be Keepers at Home.” This topic is near and dear to my heart. Because I refer to myself as a “recovering career woman.” I say “recovering” because much like the recovering addict, I was addicted to my career. I was addicted to my title, influence, money, nice clothes, and yes, the corner office. But when I became a Christian,…
