Top Ten Ways to Be Productive at Home
There is a lot of confusion and misinformation floating around about what being a keeper at home entails. It is not surprising to hear worldly women who are all for choice, mock the choice to work as a wife and mother within the home by portraying it as an insipid life filled with drudgery, not at all challenging or intellectually stimulating. Though a resurgence of interest in homemaking seems to be occurring in mainstream America, with interest in domestic skills such as cooking and decorating even becoming trendy, there is a disappointing trend in the opposite direction in the church, which always seems to limp a few steps behind the world, tagging at those ragged coattails in a quixotic quest for acceptability (some have dubbed it being “relevant,” though that lame excuse does not scan when the music changes before the dance partner has even noted your presence in the room). Christian young women are increasingly seeing home and family as just another option among many competing, and more interesting, pursuits they might follow.
