Working Once the Children are in School Full Time

Working Once the Children are in School Full Time

Women have often asked me if it’s okay for women to work full time once their children are in school all day. I have known women who have done this and they have told me it’s exhausting. Something is always sacrificed since we weren’t created to do it all. Abbie Berringer wrote an article entitled What If I Become a Stay-at-Home Mom? Here’s what she had to say about her childhood once her mother went back to work full time….

She Tarries in Her Home

She Tarries in Her Home

“Kings of armies did flee apace: and she that tarried at home divided the spoil” (Psalm 68:12). This is a verse illustrating God’s beautiful roles for men and women. There are two interesting things about this verse. Namely, the men went off to war and the women were in their homes. All throughout the Word of God, this is shown. Men were to be the protectors and providers and women the ones caring for their families and homes. Here are…

Mothers Who Have Chosen to Be the CEO of Their Own Families

Mothers Who Have Chosen to Be the CEO of Their Own Families

Written By Elizabeth Shine I’m not a mother, and at 48 I’m unlikely to become one. My whole professional life, I’ve been leaning in. It’s wasn’t until things went badly wrong that I realized the human-capital value of a group of women modern society tends to ignore or  dismiss, stay-at-home-moms. As a global management professional, I’ve lived and traveled all over the world. In 2015, my life exploded. On a dark April afternoon in Dubai, a perfect storm of issues…

Do I Condemn Mothers Who Are NOT Keepers at Home?

Do I Condemn Mothers Who Are NOT Keepers at Home?

“What I find appalling is you condemning women that don’t have the privilege to be keepers at home. Most moms have a difficult time with self-esteem and you are adding to this anxiety. What about single moms? Are they less of a woman because they have to support their family?” A woman wrote this comment to me on Facebook last week but I hear similar sentiments often. Do I condemn single mothers or mothers who can’t be home full time…

Her Career Was Worth It?

Her Career Was Worth It?

There’s an article written by a Christian woman who went to college and had a good career before getting married. Once she had children, she decided to stay home full time and raise her children. When asked if going to college and having a career were worth it, since she’s now a full-time keeper at home, she answers, “Yes!” She then rattled a bunch of reasons why, yet her husband is still working hard to pay off her large student…

The Modern Day Proverbs 31 Woman

The Modern Day Proverbs 31 Woman

The Proverbs 31 woman was not a real person that once lived. She’s an example of a woman who the King’s mother told him to look for in a wife. There are no commands to us in Proverbs 31, but this woman is a good example for us in many ways. I am going to match the attributes of this woman to the commands given to us for today that are clearly spelled out in the New Testament so we…

Biting on the Feminist Lie

Biting on the Feminist Lie

The Facebook page called Fix the Family-Citadel Catholic Media shared one of my handwritten posts about women being keepers at home. No, I am not a Catholic but this site teaches almost everything I do about mothers being home for their children full time which I fully appreciate and they clearly understand the harm that feminism has done to the family unit. Here is a comment they received from my post which is similar to the many comments I receive…

Your Happiness Does Not Negate the Word of God

Your Happiness Does Not Negate the Word of God

Many believe they can have it all. Women are not immune to this thinking: believing that they can have a career, a marriage, and children without someone or something suffering. Too often those who suffer the most are those who “gain the whole world but lose their soul.” They lose the things that are of eternal value for nothing but wood, hay and stubble that are to be burned up in the end. A life well lived will not be…

Why Aren’t Women’s Ministries Teaching Biblical Womanhood?

Why Aren’t Women’s Ministries Teaching Biblical Womanhood?

The first Women’s Bible Studies began in the mid-1800s by Katherine Bushnell when women began watering down the language in the Bible towards women. The way they by-passed the limited role of women in the churches was by focusing upon the verses about the equality of men and women, then pointing out those women in the Bible who had leadership roles (all from the OT: Deborah, Ruth, and Esther). They even wrote a Woman’s Bible in the late 1800s. Thus,…

The Christian Woman’s Legitimate Sphere of Action and Influence – The Home

The Christian Woman’s Legitimate Sphere of Action and Influence – The Home

Studying the Word of God is something I love to do. Each time I read it, even with those passages that I have read many times, I learn something new. God’s Word is definitely a twoedged sword! The KJV uses the word “suffer” in this verse which means to allow or permit: “But I suffer not a woman to teach, not to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence” (1 Timothy 2:12). Once in a while, I…
