Twiddling Thumbs

The mental image of “stay-at-home daughters” is usually of a girl . . .

Who is at home twiddling her thumbs while waiting, just waiting, for her Prince Charming to come and sweep her off her feet. She has nothing better to do than clean the house. Oh, and she can cook, too. What in the world does she do with all that free time? I mean really, all she’s capable of doing now is just waiting for her Prince Charming . . . right?

There’s a lot more to being a stay-at-home daughter than just cooking and cleaning. But because that’s the only thing the world thinks we’re doing, no wonder we seem so strange . . .

    What an encouraging post, Emily Rose!
    I love the word “profitable.” And to ask “is what I am doing profitable?” or is it helpful toward my future role as a wife and mother?

    Thanks for the lovely thoughts, dear friend!

    Joyfully in Jesus,

    Congratulations on your graduation!!! When I read your post, I felt like you needed to justify your staying at home status… please don’t! You are so lucky to learn direcly from your parents, you have the time to develop so many skills: you have the best life! I’m now a stay at home mom for my dear husband and our wonderful baby boy and I asked your mother some advise on how to raise our son in a godly way: if she’s with both of you the same way she have been with me, you are raised by an angel. Every morning I come to your blog and it’s an oasis of peace, faith and pure talent. :)
