True Fulfillment as a Woman


Various different articles, studies, and research has shown us how to find happiness as women. A myth has been being perpetuated that women need to have a successful career in order to find meaning and happiness. Working at home helping your husband will bring greater joy, peace, and happiness for everyone.

1. Women abandoning home and children has created guilt on an epidemic scale.

2. Women now struggle with decreased overall happiness.

3. Mothers are more strained and exhausted.

4. Women are chasing an elusive happiness in a hamster wheel.

5. “They are to teach what is good…working at home.” Titus 2:4-5 God knows what we need; that is where we find happiness.

    Masondan, thanks for posting on this subject. My thought is that there is a natural conflict between motherhood and career, since a person can generally only do one thing at a time. The fact is, there is a real need for a culture to develop in which wives can remain in the home. Such a culture would necessarily have to do away with the idea that it is BETTER for a woman to have a career rather than embrace motherhood.

    God bless, and keep up the good work!

      For a woman to remain at home as a wife and mother used to be the culture until all this women’s liber stuff started in the 70’s in earnest and went from there to what we have now. They were conned into believing a lie straight from hell. Now look what we have in this country. Abortion on demand, broken families that produce a broken society, absentee mothers and wives who leave the raising of their children to baby sitters or pre school who teach them the world values instead of God’s values. We also have a government that is resposible too by over spending and raising taxes so high that it is almost impossible to raise a family with only the man’s income. This is my view point from a woman who saw all this happen and the results of it. God is pretty much being banned from our society and we are reaping the results of it. I hope these young women will realize the lie they have been fed and do something to change it. It has to come from them. My kids are grown now so I have a good dog named Harley and a good husband. I pray God will instill in these young mothers the priviage they have in staying home and really raising their children. Let your husband be the man and the bread winner.

        Hi harley, I totally agree with what you have said and I can add that the mothers’ role at home is more difficult, important, sacred, and essential than securing incomes . Who will be serving your kids better than there mothers, they say that during birth mothers are so close to death and that the pain they have will be so poewerfull to an extent that some fluids are delivered by the brain makes mothers forget this pain so they dare to have babies again. For only that I know that they have better roles and responsibilities that what husbunds have.

    I’ve been reading that verse in Titus, and, oh, it’s so true! I think the Bible is pretty clear about woman’s purpose… Why don’t we apply it?!? Great post =D

    Amazing that the word of God is right! The sad part is how far we have gotten away from it as a pastor’s wife I teach that the greatest thing to be is a wife and a mom that is our role. That role will look different in each marriage because each man is different and what works in that family will need to be decided between them and God.

    It’s the serpent’s lie – deceiving women in mass – that they cannot be fulfilled at home. The embraces of her children, the ordering of her home, even fresh smelling laundry can bring joy. I have to learn to cook so I won’t add that one in yet. 😉

    “chasing an elusive happiness in a hamster wheel”
    Is that the plan?
    HaHa — not a good plan — Here is the plan: John 3
    16For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 19This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
    later in the text, John the Baptist says ““A person can receive only what is given them from heaven.”
    Thanks for posting.

    So true, I love it. The Bible says that a woman is to be a helpmeet for her husband, and that she is to be a “keeper at home” (in the King James). Of course in these days it’s often hard to make it on just one income and the woman is kind of forced to work, but I don’t believe in a woman having a full-on career once she is married. Her responsibility then is to her husband. Thanks for posting!
