Younger Women

This is Emma's favorite place...on the lap of her mommy,  Erin. 

"I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house..."  I Timothy 6:14

I am mentoring a 34 year old woman (not Erin...She is only 23!)  who has a one year old and has been married for nine years. She spent all those years prior to having a baby going to school and working. She said she doesn't know why she felt she needed so much education. She said that being a wife, mother, and staying home full time is where she belongs. She LOVES it. I told her that she had listened to the lies of society, instead of what the Bible teaches. 

Society tells women that they need to get a lot of education and have a career. Most little girls love to wear dresses, rock their baby dolls, and play house.  Somewhere along the line, they stop loving dresses and rocking their babies, maybe because they are made fun of when doing feminine things.  Our society frowns upon a young woman that says she wants to be a wife and mother. I have always taught my girls to be proud of saying that.

To the unmarried woman the Bible says, "The unmarried woman cares for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and spirit..." I Cor. 7:34

One question:  Does college or a career help a young woman care for things of the Lord, that she may be holy in body and spirit?  Just asking...
