It’s been quiet on the blog lately. This fall brought two speaking engagements (a new thing for me), my fifth year of teaching, a new job for my husband, and life with a toddler.
But I’m back to share a few thoughts. And I’m trying hard not to apologize for being away. I love writing here, and I love that there are people who want to read what I write. But you guys know that I love my three-dimensional life more. So I won’t apologize.
Which is hard for me; not apologizing. And I know I’m not the only one who struggles with using that little five-letter word to account for a multitude of shame.
Wifehood, motherhood, and homemaking are not the beginning and end of my identity. While important, I am allowed to have other gifts and callings.
The phrase “biblical womanhood” is often a sweet Jesus Juke that silences the discontent that could lead us to the Cross.
These two dresses have been a fabulous addition to my fledgling wardrobe. One step closer to having a personal style, y’all. It’s coming!
We must base our understanding of meritorious womanhood on the Gospel that applies to real women.
It’s harder than the culture’s notion that we are perfect and more complex than the inner voice that screams that we are worthless worms in every way. Be kind to yourself.
Here on earth, marriage is broken sometimes… because we are broken.
