Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. ~ Margaret D. Nadald

Our Father also gifted us with the nature to nurture, keen sensitivity to the Spirit, selflessness, discernment, and heroic faith. No wonder our Father placed us at the heart of the family and thus at the center of the plan of salvation. We are the Lord's secret weapon. ~ Sheri Dew

I'd love it if you would follow my blog!

A New Favorite Blog....

You definitely do not want to miss this one! www.ladiesagainstfeminism.com is a beautifully feminine site. Not only do they have wonderful articles, but in their link section I found an ad for www.bigfamilyshirts.com where things like this brought a huge smile to my face first thing in the morning:

This is what an antifeminist looks like.

and this (notice the bag in the middle :-D):

While I could not find said bag for sale on their site, my absolute love for it is still very present!

Yes, I owe you many posts, but I hope this will pacify you for now as well as reinforce my desire to help fill your mind with the knowledge that you're not alone! You, caretaker of husband, child(ren), home, studies, nutrition, medicinal needs, and server to those who need a helping hand... despite the distaste that is evident upon the faces of those who pass you in the supermarket with your gaggle in tow (regardless of how polite and quiet they're being), and the comments made to tear you down and make your career choice of not only having children but being around to raise them each and everyday, and the disgust and confusion that other women offer when you choose to stay home with your husband instead of participating in set "girls nights" each week/month. There are others who are right there with you! Keep up the good work! I have a college degree, I have employment opportunities that would make our income exponentially greater than it is (I love the military, but lets just say Mr. Wonderful isn't in it for the money!), but the work I do in my home WILL affect the world greater than ANYTHING else I could possibly do. We have control of the future!

On a side note, but still related to the above thought, while reading Stand for the Family a few months ago (and truly getting a little frightened), I came to the best conclusion ever! I hope it brings you a greater feeling of hope too.... After discussing some concerns with my husband I ended up wondering aloud "Well, if these people are so pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage and anti-childbearing, than who's going to fight their cause in the end? If us pro-family people are the only ones have children, I think we're going to have a pretty good shot here!" Just a little bit of sunshine for your day :-). Stand Tall! Your good example of womanhood can influence many others if you go about your tasks with joy and vision!

Love this!
Especially the part during your discussion with Nate when you were wondering aloud.
My thoughts exactly!
