Stay at home daughters~

I was reading a blog by a stay at home daughter and she wrote a post I thought I would share it with you all!

"If you choose to train to become a homemaker -if you choose to live at home with your parents and serve your family until you become a wife and mother -if you live under the jurisdiction of your parents until you are given in marriage to a godly young man to whom you choose to submit... And especially if you do all of this because of biblical precedent and precept...

Expect some stones to fly in your direction.

Don't be surprised when you receive snide remarks -and don't be shocked with mischaracterization -and don't shrink back when others mock and deride you. And don't bother compromising, because unless you go all the way in trying to please the world, you'll never be far enough from your convictions.

But, also, don't lose heart. You are different -you are counter-cultural -you are purposeful -

And you're a threat.

Yes, you! You are a hard-core feminist's worst nightmare -you are chock-full of potential -you are beautiful -you are industrious -you are intelligent... and you've chosen to pour that -every ounce of it -not a drop left -not a stone left unturned -into your family. And you're not doing it because you have to -you're not doing it because there aren't any other options, or because societal norms won't allow you to do otherwise, or because it's the only choice your parents have given you -you're doing it because you want to."
