I'd like to write a little bit of a book introduction to you and recommend you to take the time to read this wonderful book. The book is entitled Anna Maria's Housekeeping by Mrs. S. D. Power. It is now available as a free e-book in the archives. If you are a woman who believes that she must make her mark and defeat men financially in society, I believe you will set your self up for destruction either emotionally or physically if not mentally. There are times where a woman who is a widow should have the same ability to make equal wages as a man who is doing the same work, but to literally destroy other men in society who are literally in love with their wife and desire to protect his family, the women who are in the workforce have deceived themselves about the blessing God truly has in store.
All in all, back to the book, I recommend you read this book because the wording is wonderful and shows us how we are not too far removed from the reality that housework is HARD and not easy and there really is no way around it except to get busy and do it. Reading the book will show you how important it is to truly keep up with the home in so many ways. Not only do women need to keep things clean and neat but also keep up with things such as a well trained child who is not sloppy and lazy or who desires not to learn new skills. If anything sexual predators lurk around many of our communities and we need to teach our children how to protect themselves from the lusts of the flesh.
