What Next?

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.

5 Conversations: Princess Today, Royal Pain Tomorrow?

My daughter, Kaylee, spent the second semester of seventh grade living with her father in Florida. My boys and I went to spend Spring Break with her. In our beach house, we had cable – something we don’t have at home. Kaylee insisted that I watch a show with her about sweet sixteen birthday parties for young up and coming divas that she’d been watching at his house.

5 Conversations: Bad Is the New Good

The director over the entire group put a hand to her chest and said, “Doesn’t it just break your heart?”

To which I replied, “It might, if she hadn’t practiced that for two hours today. She used a hand mirror and once she got the face right, she used a mirror in her room and watched herself walk away with several angles. She’s been waiting for an opportunity to do it all night and knew she couldn’t sit with me.”

When I Grow Up, I Want to Be a Mom, Part I

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.

The Anti-Marriage Agenda

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.
