There is so much junk in the media these days, especially when it comes to the roles of women. I tried to looking up some quotes to share, but many that I found were so degrading-I dare not share those words with anyone.
What blows my mind is how upset the general public is with the likes of traditional women, and stay-at-home moms. I just don't get it. So many feminists spew this lie that we are slaves to our homes, children, and husbands-and are a drain on society. This hurts my soul in many ways.
I am a woman.
I am a woman, daughter, wife, and mother.
I am a woman who CHOOSES to stay at home against the odds, while sacrificing an "easier" lifestyle.
I am a woman who CHOOSES to honor my husband and submit to him, not because I am a doormat, but because I CHOOSE to honor not only him, but my Jesus too.
I am a woman who CHOOSES to believe that submission is not the same thing as slavery. I CHOOSE to see this as a form of my love and commitment to my husband.
I am a woman who CHOOSES not to desire to be under a woman president or even a woman preacher. I am a woman who CHOOSES to not support my husband having to be under the authority of a woman.
I am a woman who CHOOSES to be barefoot and pregnant in the kitchen, cause well-I like it like that.
I am a woman who CHOOSES not to be on birth control, because my husband and I have entrusted to God on how many children we will have.
I am a woman who CHOOSES to stay home, so that I will be the one to influence and raise my children-not anyone else, nor the government's ideals.
I am a woman who CHOOSES to home school my babies, because I've been the child who was trampled on by the school system-and I won't have that done to them.
I am a woman who CHOOSES to take care of my home, because it is where my children learn and grow, and where my husband comes to retreat from the worries of the world.
I am a woman who CHOOSES not to be loud, obnoxious, harsh, and opinionated while using obscene language. I CHOOSE to believe that this sort of behavior is extremely unattractive. I CHOOSE to get my point across through kindness, meekness, and self-control.
I am a woman who CHOOSES to carry myself with quiet dignity, instead of demanding it from everyone around me. I CHOOSE to be in the likes of the Audrey Hepburns, Grace Kellys, and Princess Dianas of the world.
I am a woman who CHOOSES to be pro-life, because I've felt and seen the life inside of me. I CHOOSE to care about this tiny life inside of the womb, just as much as I care about those outside of it.
So there I am.
If I'm "sucking the life out of society" or "degrading what women have fought for" then that's okay.
Hating me for it won't change my mind.
Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— 4 but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. ~ 1 Peter 3:3-5
Too many women have too much leisure time for their own good. They have time for criticism, gossip, faultfinding, and complaining. They have time for idle games and lay too much attention to things of the flesh. There are other women who have too little time for the enduring things of life. They are too busy flitting about doing this and that. They have great activity and much doing, but they lack time for building Christian characters. Both kinds of women — the too-idle and the too-busy need to take time for meditation and quiet repose in prayer to God. They need time to cultivate their souls that in turn they may cultivate their children’s lives. ~ Billy Graham
