Back to the Basics of Biblical Womanhood.
What kind of woman do you want to be known for? I dont know about you, but I want to be known as a Godly woman. I don't want to blend in with the rest of the world. I want to share with you today an article I found called The Rise and Fall of Motherhood in America.
Help me see how important my role as a wife and mother is. I want to raise GODLY children, not worldy. Help me to seek Your Truth and to apply it to my life. Only when I am filled with Your Truth can I sift out the lies this culture has fed me. Amen.
Here is a quote I found worthy to mention:
In 1950, the great Scottish American preacher Peter Marshall stood before the United States Senate and he explained it this way:
The modern challenge to motherhood is the eternal challenge — that of being a godly woman. The very phrase sounds strange in our ears. We never hear it now. We hear about every other kind of women — beautiful women, smart women, sophisticated women, career woman, talented women, divorced women, but so seldom do we hear of a godly woman — or of a godly man either, for that matter.
I believe women come nearer fulfilling their God-given function in the home than anywhere else. It is a much nobler thing to be a good wife than to be Miss America. It is a greater achievement to establish a Christian home than it is to produce a second-rate novel filled with filth. It is a far, far better thing in the realm of morals to be old-fashioned than to be ultramodern. The world has enough women who know how to hold their cocktails, who have lost all their illusions and their faith. The world has enough women who know how to be smart.
It needs women who are willing to be simple. The world has enough women who know how to be brilliant. It needs some who will be brave. The world has enough women who are popular. It needs more who are pure. We need women, and men, too, who would rather be morally right that socially correct
