Well first off, I went and visited over at the RHOK and joined up with today's linky. Thought you might wanna join me for the ride. Today was nice that it was a cool enough breeze to pull out my chenille robe that my mom made for me. It is bright red with bright colored flowers. I feel like an Easter egg sitting here. But the bright colors sure do cheer me up.
My Foolish Heart by Susan May Warren. Here Isadora is a talk radio host and the voices that ask for advice tug at her heart, especially Caleb's. I know that voices have always been my undoing. Hearing a man's deep rumble can make my knees weak. In My Foolish Heart, Caleb has to figure out if he is deeply attracted to his neighbor or her alter ego on the radio. Of course we all know that inside each lady is several alter egos. The other book I finished was 'When Sparrows Fall' by Meg Moseley. I did find the challenges that Miranda had to overcome quite interesting. I am a head strong woman. Never been one to let a man control me. So I find it amazing to meet (or read) about women who truly let the man tell them every thing to do and they do it. Now don't get me wrong. I adore Dear Hubby and we discuss our decisions. But the putting the foot down does not work for me. He guides our family with love and caring not dictatorship. It is even harder when these families are ruled by both the husband and feel they are following God's law too. A woman does not want to break her bond with her Savior in any form. Where is the middle ground? I loved seeing Miranda finding that space where she is full and whole. This book will unleash more discussion on the Christian practice and questions surrounding “Quiverfull.” People who have abandoned “quiverfull” or patriarchal teachings now gather online at sites such as “No Longer Quivering,” “Quivering Daughters,” “That Mom,” “Razing Ruth” and several others.
