Taylor Swift's Other Dream

She said the only other thing she'd want to be doing if she wasn't making music is, "Being a mom full time, doing everything for my kids, having a bunch of them," she says of her future aspirations. "That's the only other thing that could be as thrilling for me as doing this."*

Being a full time mom, doing everything for her children and having a bunch of them would be thrilling for her! She thinks it would be as thrilling as being a number one singing artist known all around the world with a ton of money. She understands the value of motherhood.  There is no greater job in the world in spite of what our society has told women.

The women's rights movement started because women were unsatisfied being full-time moms and raising children. Women were told they would be much happier if they were able to get out of the house and have full-time careers. This hasn't seemed to satisfy many women. It just causes their lives to be a lot harder.

I love it that Taylor is willing to openly admit her desire to be a mother and as much as she sings about love, it sure seems like she is looking for love.

I like Taylor Swift. She seems to be keeping her gentleness and kindness through her fame. I saw one interview with her recently and she admitted that she didn't know how to do love. I think the most important thing she needs to focus on is choosing the right man, a solid man who loves God, works hard, and keeps his commitments AND becoming a wife who will love and respect her husband without trying to change or control him.

Then she needs to learn that love is commitment. It has nothing to do with feelings because feelings will come and go. Love is a lot of work. It takes a lot of forgetting about yourself and learning to love and serve your husband. I pray she will learn that lesson soon so she can have the desires of her heart.

She would be a great role model to society if she found an amazing husband,  had an incredible marriage, and lots of children. Now that would be fun to watch!

Teach the young women to be sober,
to love their husbands, to love their children...
Titus 2:4
