Passionate Housewives Desperate For God

By Jennie Chancey & Stacey McDonald

"In an age of constant confusion and conflict over the role of women, Passionate Housewives provides a clear-cut message of biblical encouragement and hope for every woman who truly desires to glorify the Lord as a wife, mother, and homemaker." Crystal Paine, wife of Jesse Paine and founder of BiblicalWomanhood.com

Excerpt:  It took me a long time to realise that I needed to serve God right where He had placed me - and I didn't have to be in seclusion to spend quality time with Him.  I was in His presence with every diaper I changed, every Bible story I told my children, every meal I prepared, every toilet I cleaned, and every math paper I graded.  I learned to gather my little ones around me to pray the Lord's Prayer, for my good as well as theirs.

And more:  If the world can convince us to acquire a taste for the futile blandness found in a self-centred marriage, to be content with recreational motherhood, and to prefer a sterile, disposable version of home "economics", then we will miss the beauty and poetry that is ours in the heavenly magnum opus of a God-glorifying, well-ordered home.

**One of our "classic" reads.  I read it over and over again each year (or less!).  M&G.
