heart for God and His glory.... This book will make you think, will
you, and will.... give you a “fresh vision for the hopeful homemaker.”
—Martha Peace, biblical counselor and author of
Have you struggled to reconcile God’s vision of virtuous womanhood with worldly myths that marginalize
and mock the role of the
homemaker? Do you wrestle with cultural messages that demean the
homemaker’s calling and exalt instead the emotionally androgynous
power-woman, the wife whose worth is measured only by the degree of her
self-ambition, the shape of her body, or her money-making skills?
Pull up a chair, dust off the cookie crumbs, and join Jennie Chancey
and Stacy McDonald as they they lay aside demeaning stereotypes like
“Stepford wife,” and reveal the 1950s’ “perfect homemaker” trap.
Laughter and tears will flow, and hopefully you will
be infused with a renewed vision for victory as a wife and mother.
