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…

Feminism Has Made Life Harder For Women

Feminism Has Made Life Harder For Women

“Russians by and large adhere to relatively strict gender roles: women are expected to dress well and take care of themselves, to want many babies, to act as the center of the household, and to be very ladylike, while men are expected to carry all the financial responsibility, protect the honor of their women, carry heavy loads, and drive the car.” This is from an article called Why Do Most Russian Women Hate Feminism. “The obvious question here is: how…

Her Husband Doesn’t Want a Stay-at-Home Wife

Her baby is ten months old. She gets a year paid maternity leave but since being home with her baby, she no longer has any desire to go back to work. Her husband doesn’t understand that she actually prefers being a mother to her baby rather than having a career. “We met when we worked at the same company many years ago, and one of the things I was most attracted to was her ambition and tenacity. It’s really surprising…

Needs Were Simpler in the 1970s

Needs Were Simpler in the 1970s

The other day on Facebook, I posted a tweet comparing the cost of living in the 1970s to life in 2021. Homes are much larger now. Most families own two cars which are expensive with the upkeep and insurance, whereas they used to own one. More women are using daycare rather than staying home with their children. There was no cell phones and limited cable. People didn’t eat out like they do now and vacations weren’t often. The needs were…

When Do Mothers Blaspheme God’s Word?

When Do Mothers Blaspheme God’s Word?

On Instagram last week, I shared a tweet of mine and below it I wrote out Titus 2:3-5. “ The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” One…

Working Mothers are Better For Children?

Working Mothers are Better For Children?

Jill Filipovic wrote a diatrabe basically arguing that working mothers are better for children on Twitter the other day. Her words are in quotes. Mine follow. “And now I am really going to get myself yelled at, but I also think the issue of example setting for a kid is a totally fair one. What example are you setting when dad works for pay and mom does the care work at home? Lots of reasons not to want to set…

Single Women Numbers Soaring

Single Women Numbers Soaring

CNN Business had a headline the other day that read, “By 2030, 45 percent of working women aged 25 to 44 in the United States will be single, the largest share in history.” The man who shared this on Twitter, wrote above it, “Female depression also at all time highs. Just a coincidence.” Women will often say that women are taking positions of authority, because men have abdicated their positions. No, it’s women who have abdicated their positions at home…

Women Don’t Want to Stay at Home

Women Don’t Want to Stay at Home

God commands that older women teach young women to be keepers at home so they don’t blaspheme the word of God (Titus 2:3-5). Many women don’t like to be told to be keepers AT home. They want to be able to work outside of the home. They are “bored” at home. They don’t want to serve their families. They would rather serve others. God knew this and this is why He commands older women to teach them to be keepers…

Her Feet Abide Not in Her House

Her Feet Abide Not in Her House

“She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house” (Proverbs 7:11) “She is not a ‘keeper at home,’ as St. Paul (Titus 2:5) would have Christian matrons to be.” (Ellicot’s Commentary) “She is full of talk, self-willed, disobedient to her husband, rebellious against God, and incorrigible by any admonitions of ministers or friends. Her feet abide not in her house — She minds not her business, which lies in her own house, but gives herself wholly up…
