Great Reading


From time to time I have been referred to as “the anti feminist” for my staunch defense of God’s order of creation against the tides of feminism.

Hogwash and patooey!

For the finest confession of femininity and woman as God created her to be, no one speaks with as fine a voice as that which comes through at Favorite Apron and Sew Liturgical. Libraries of books and pages of rhetoric cannot speak with the eloquence of one faithful wife and mother joyously engaged in her vocation.

Both of these blogs are a “must read” if only for this reason.

As per the norm, my good Deaconess, you speak much truth with much wisdom.

Words written & spoken by folks who are faithfully & joyfully carrying out their vocations are very powerful confessions, aren't they?

Who'da thunk it?

Perhaps the writer of Proverbs 31 was onto something?

This is not to say that there isn't a place for good rhetoric and a well-written apologia for the order of creation; only that the one often receives notice while the other goes by without our notice. It is the latter that is actually changing hearts while the diaper is being changed.

It is one thing to talk about being a Godly woman.

It is another thing entirely to live the life of a Godly woman.

Mrs. Ekin does so very well.

So does Mrs. Carder.

So does my wife. God forbid I leave out the wonderful gift God gave me in my wife. And our daughter.

Let us rejoice in the Gifts!

You give honorable mention to a great example of what it means to be a woman of God. I'm glad you found her blogspot. She's the real deal!
