Mixed Up Feminism

"Feminism is mixed up with a muddled idea that women are free when they serve their employers but slaves when they help their husbands."

Homemakers Are Serving God

"You are as much serving God in looking after your own children, and training them up in God's fear, and minding the house, and making your household a church for God, as you would be if you had been called to lead an army to battle for the Lord of hosts." -Charles Spurgeon

This Job

"This job has been given to me to do.  Therefore, it is a gift.  Therefore, it is a privilege.  Therefore, it is an offering I may make to God.  Therefore, it is to be done gladly, if it is done for Him.  Here, not somewhere else, I may learn God’s way.  In this job, not in some other, God looks for faithfulness." 
~Elisabeth Elliot

Men and Women Are Not Interchangeable

"This new theory, that men and women are interchangeable, was never spawned from the Bible. Christians have farmed the Bible's teaching on lifestyle for the past 2000 years without discovering one speck of feminist theology. The nineteenth-century feminists were at least honest enough to recognize this, which is why Elizabeth Cady Stanton, one of their leaders, felt impelled to invent the Women's Bible in an effort to debunk the obviously nonfeminist teaching of the original."

A Combined Vaccine Record and Payment System?

As I've shared with you before, I'm not a big fan of keeping up with news, but during these times...there are things we need to be aware of, and they're not coming from the mainstream media.

Regardless of your stance on vaccines, we need to stand together for the protection of our families. I strongly suggest you share this information with your husbands, who have a Biblical duty to be the protectors of your homes.  This is what is in the works...Africa to Become Testing Ground for “Trust Stamp” Vaccine Record and Payment System.  Sources are linked in the article along with more sources below.  I'm sure I don't need to expound on why this is alarming.
(an article excerpt)
"A biometric digital identity platform that 'evolves just as you evolve' is set to be introduced in 'low-income, remote communities' in West Africa thanks to a public-private partnership between the Bill Gates-backed GAVI vaccine alliance, Mastercard and the AI-powered 'identity authentication' company, Trust Stamp."
"The program, which was first launched in late 2018, will see Trust Stamp’s digital identity platform integrated into the GAVI-Mastercard “Wellness Pass,” a digital vaccination record and identity system that is also linked to Mastercard’s click-to-play system that powered by its AI and machine learning technology called NuData. Mastercard, in addition to professing its commitment to promoting 'centralized record keeping of childhood immunization' also describes itself as a leader toward a 'World Beyond Cash,' and its partnership with GAVI marks a novel approach towards linking a biometric digital identity system, vaccination records, and a payment system into a single cohesive platform. The effort, since its launch nearly two years ago, has been funded via $3.8 million in GAVI donor funds in addition to a matched donation of the same amount by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation."

The best immune system is located in your body--not in a vaccine, not in a mask, not in a drug. Take care of it.

The Gospel in Motherhood

"At the very heart of the gospel is sacrifice, and there is perhaps no occupation in the world so intrinsically sacrificial as motherhood. Motherhood is a wonderful opportunity to live the gospel. Jim Elliot famously said, 'He is no fool who gives up that which he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose.' Motherhood provides you with an opportunity to lay down the things that you cannot keep on behalf of the souls that you cannot lose. They are eternal souls, they are your children, they are your mission field."

Without Hypocrisy

Instruction, and advice, and commands will profit little, unless they are backed up by the pattern of your own life. Your children will never believe you are in earnest, and really wish to obey you, so long as your actions contradict your counsel.

From Adam's Rib

That the woman was made of a rib out of the side of Adam; not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be beloved.
