I thought chapter 6 of Nancy Leigh DeMoss’ Lies Women Believe: And the Truth that Sets them Free, just kind of brushed on the issues about marriage and the lies that can trap and hurt women. It seemed to just skim the surface. I don’t know if the author was trying to stay non-controversial or if she just didn’t want to get bogged down in details that could each one make up their own book.Pin It

By way of introduction to chapter 2 of of Lies Women Believe: And the Truth that Sets them Free by Nancy Leigh DeMoss (previously titled Walking in the Truth) “Lies Women Believe About God”, I think what Nancy said best says it:Pin It
We’re going to start it September 3rd. We’d start this week, but my husband got home Sunday evening after spending the last 29 months in Afghanistan, and I just haven’t spent a lot of time reading or preparing blog posts this week *smile*.Pin It
The before dinner devotions are open – it will be whatever my husband or I determines will be discussed at that time. During breakfast, however, we have a set Bible reading.Pin It
We finished the last chapter of Vicki Courtney’s 5 Conversations You Must Have with Your Daughter on July 1st. As much as I enjoyed going through that book with you, I understand that not all of us are mothers of girls, and not all of us are mothers. But, as this is a site for Christian Women, we are mostly women. As such, I’ve decided that the next series in our Writing Worth Reading category should focus simply on womanhood, on being a woman.
I have been mentally working on a post on this topic for some time. It’s always kind of been there, in the background, but several months ago, I was blog surfing and came across a blog called Homemaking on a Whim and a post titled, “Is Working Outside the Home a Sin?” The title kind of threw me off guard, and I dug a little deeper into it, finding the reference to another series of articles on a blog called Courageous Homemaking.
Right after my first wedding, my ex-husband and I visited his brother and one of my bridesmaids. They had recently moved to another town in Florida. They’d been living together for about eighteen months. I had weddings on my mind and asked her when they were getting married. She said, “Oh, we’re never getting married.”Pin It
It took me quite some time to decide what to write about for this chapter in Vicki Courtney’s 5 Conversations You Must Have with Your Daughter, and the introduction to conversation number 4: It’s OK to Dream About Marriage and Motherhood! Chapter 14, “The Anti-Marriage Agenda” listed all sorts of statistics and social thoughts about marriage and the state of marriage today. They were interesting, but not overly surprising. Less people get married today than they did 40 years ago, and they’re getting married much later in life than they did 40 years ago. I think that is obvious and I don’t need to rehash it all.Pin It
For those of you who took the time to respond to my Monday Morning Survey questions I and II, I just want to say thank you so much. Your answers were so thoughtfully presented. I REALLY enjoyed a different way to get to know some of you.Pin It
Halfway through, I could hardly speak because tears were clogging my throat. My 2-year-old looked up at me and said, “What’s wrong, Mommy?”
I could only say, “Nothing. I just love Jesus so much.”Pin It
