In past generations, the role of wife and mother was viewed as a sacred calling. The committed homemaker was seen as strong, capable, intelligent, and irreplaceable. She was regarded not only as a crucial part of the home, but as a foundational bulwark of society. She was considered worthy of great honor, appreciation, and respect. Though in recent years feminists have sought to demean this glorious calling, the Bible’s hopeful vision of noble womanhood is one worth reclaiming. Queen of the Home seeks to cast that vision afresh through godly encouragements from writers past and present. This inspiring collection of essays, poetry, and poignant vignettes paints a beautiful picture of what it means for a wife to be a crown to her husband, the monarch of the cradle, and queen of the home, and calls upon daughters to embrace their rewarding role and sacred calling as regal women of God.
Friends, if you are hungry for some eternal perspective in the difficult task of motherhood and homemaking, this is the book for you. It is a treasure trove full of encouragement and vision. With generous quotes and passages from authors both historic and modern, the book powerfully and boldly inspired me to “keep” a home that reflects God’s grace and goodness.
In a generation that has, sadly, swallowed the lies of feminism and dismissed the role of women in the home as outdated and unneeded, Queen of the Home will remind you of your divine mission: the people that God has called you to serve. The work He has given you to do that will extend to the next generation and beyond. ~ Bambi Moore, In the Nursery of the Nation
“There is a book I have found to be invaluable to my job as a mother. There are several reasons why:
It’s perfect for a busy mom who doesn’t have a lot of time to read. The book contains short stories, fabulous quotes and poems that quickly and profoundly inspire in just a few minutes of reading!
The vision cast in this book for mothers is so fresh and vivid that one paragraph can change the direction of my day…true story.
As there is less and less encouragement for the mother pouring her life into the next generation, this book is like a little cheer-leading section, filled with other mothers who walk beside you, urging you on, giving you strength and renewal for those hard days, and not so hard days. ~ Kelly Crawford, Generation Cedar
