As a mama with a Master’s degree and a background in Management Consulting, my billable day rate is on the high side. However, I willing give my time to my children and husband because I am playing with eternity–not futility–in mind.

Getting a household ready for the weekly Sabbath can be tricky, but with some practice and these handy hacks, your crew too can be ready to rest for God’s glory.
Last week, the “SBC this Week” podcast interviewed J.D. Greear, the current President of the Southern Baptist Convention. During the interview, he listed his goals for the convention of churches, one of which was to ‘get women off the sidelines‘. While President Greear sounds genuinely committed to helping women, this goal really bothered me as a biblically-faithful mama. What was he trying to say? When I am ministering in my home, am I not a good ‘partner in the Gospel’ and serving where God wants me to be? Is the work done outside the home the only Gospel work that matters?
This week, my SBC church tried to launch a Holy Yoga class and I almost lost it. Before last September, I had honestly never given much attention to Yoga’s roots. I just started doing it during high school as one form of exercise. The DVDs & mats were pretty inexpensive and it worked to tone my lower body (win-win, right). However, my husband and I were flabbergasted to discover in September just how nefarious yoga actually was.
