Is Work a Necessary Evil?

Is Work a Necessary Evil?

Written By Elisabeth Elliot from Keep a Quiet Heart The principle cause of boredom is the hatred of work. People are trained from childhood to hate it. Parents often feel guilty of making children do anything but the merest gestures toward work. Perhaps the children are required to make their beds and, in a feeble and half-hearted fashion, tidy up their rooms once a month or so. But take full responsibility to clear the table, load the dishwasher, scrub the pots,…

Being Jesus to Her Husband

Being Jesus to Her Husband

TheJoyFilledWife won her husband from his deep addiction to pornography by being Jesus to him. “Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously” (1 Peter 2:23). Many wives have no desire to be Jesus to their husbands but TheJoyFilledWife reaped beautiful fruit because of her obedience and faithfulness to the Lord. On Saturday, the day after I published her post When His Life is Out of…

Warning to Twenty Year Old Women

Warning to Twenty Year Old Women

For many years, Dennis Prager, a Jewish man with a lot of wisdom, has had a male/female hour on his radio program in which he discusses things relating to males and females. It’s very good and he’s very open about a man’s sexual nature and a woman’s emotional nature. I called one Wednesday and talked to him on the radio last year during this hour. After talking with me, he wanted the address of my blog! Anyways, here’s a GREAT…

Truly Enjoying Being Homemakers

Truly Enjoying Being Homemakers

God commands women to be keepers at home. We are to work hard in our homes. Work is good for us and what God intended for us. He tells us that “whatever [we] do, do it heartily as to the Lord” (Colossians 3:23). This includes working hard in the home. It’s not doing our “chores” quickly so we can get back to scrolling through Facebook or Instagram or watching TV or shopping just to go shopping and spending more money….

Abandoning Children to Work Outside of the Home is a Violation of Scripture

Abandoning Children to Work Outside of the Home is a Violation of Scripture

Preached By Pastor John MacArthur Young women are to be workers at home…workers at home. What does that mean? That means what it says, workers at home, home workers. God must have written that for our day when millions and millions and millions of women are working mothers outside the home. Millions of them have young children. In fact, the statistics of the number of women who work outside the home and have children under three is staggering; it’s something…

When Women Were Happy in the Home Without the World’s Smiles and Favors

When Women Were Happy in the Home Without the World’s Smiles and Favors

Before feminism and birth control, children were valued in America. The woman’s place in the home was valued and so was the man’s place as protector and provider. America was founded upon biblical principles and this is what made it great for many years because God’s ways are good, and acceptable, and perfect. Most today, even Christians, don’t value children and think that having only a few children is all couples should have. This mindset is from feminism and birth…

Learning Frugality Takes Practice

Learning Frugality Takes Practice

Whenever I write about women being keepers at home, I undoubtedly get a comment that this is no longer possible. Families NEED two incomes to survive, they proclaim. No, but it may take a lot of sacrifice and hard work to be able to make it on one income. One young woman asked the women in the chat room this question: “How do you ladies who are stay at home wives/moms make it work with one income?” Many women responded…

The Subtle Whoring That Cost Too Much to Be Free

The Subtle Whoring That Cost Too Much to Be Free

A song called I’ve Never Been to Me was written in 1977 but didn’t become popular until 1982. I remember listening to it when I was young but never paid much attention to the words. Ken randomly began singing this song on our walk the other day and told me how much he loved it when he was a teenager so we listened to the song. When Charlene sang the paragraph that I highlighted in bold below, tears sprung to my…

God Commands That You Be Good and You Can Be!

God Commands That You Be Good and You Can Be!

God commands the aged women to teach the young women to be “good” in Titus 3:4. There’s only one way to be good, dear women, and that is to believe what God says about you, to “reckon” it to be true as Abraham reckoned that he was a father of many nations when he was an old man and had no children. “For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness” (Romans 4:3)….

With Age Comes Wisdom and Experience

With Age Comes Wisdom and Experience

The Apostle Paul had a good reason for using the word “aged” when he commanded the aged women to teach the young women in Titus 2:3-5. The aged women have wisdom and experience that the young women don’t have. They have raised their children and have time to teach the young women. A few month ago, I wrote about young women bloggers divorcing and received a few great comments from aged women that may be of interest to you! Debby…
