Not Her Best

Carolyn Mahaney recently posted on her Girl Talk Blog a very helpful article on the tensions and toils of the wife laboring in the home. She points out that it is okay for the woman not to excel in everything she does. She further points out that the wife and mother should NOT feel as though there is a competition to be the best cook, the best seamstress or the best storyteller to her kids.

She quotes G. K. Chesterton from his book The Emancipation of Domesticity who said, “Women were not kept at home in order to keep them narrow; on the contrary, they were kept at home in order to keep them broad”

Carolyn’s aim is to encourage our ladies on the broader aims of God and the robustness of being domestic for the glory of God.
