Revisiting Feminism and the "Housewife"

So far (as of episode 5), Lorna and Tauren's heartfelt commentary on married life and raising children have been a precious blessing. Lorna give God glory for inspiring you to start this podcast. Society does not give housewives the respect and accolades they deserve for the effort they put into raising children. Indeed, this is the single most important job of all, for not only do they raise children, these housewives are custodians of social moral principles and serve as the anchor for God's wisdom. True feminism celebrates women who indirectly contribute to the economy by raising morally productive children, rather than eschewing them for not applying their talents directly to the economy. Lorna, never feel like you gave anything up to raise kids in the way of the Lord. You're using your grace well and I have learned so much from 1 podcast about raising boys. Remember everything has its time and nothing lasts forever. Lots of love

Thank u Jesus!

I thank God for you two. Please don't stop preaching. You are a true blessing in my life.
