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.

I most certainly agree that women need to get out of the way of men, and let them be the men they need to be. This is a humble, honest, and great post.

Bondage of Sin
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, –Luke 4:18
Today I would like to commend to you a wonderful ministry and resource called Setting Captives Free. This website freely offers courses to help people with various sin. Originally, this course was started by Mike Cleveland to help people overcome, by God’s authoritative Word and the help of the Holy Spirit, various sexual sins, specifically that of pornography.
There are a lot of resources out there, mostly books and seminars. This course however, is a notch above the rest.
This is a 60 day course, with actual accountability partners who in fact do a keep you accountable, not just pray for you and wish you a good day. Though it can be a little cheesy, and not always catered to one’s personal denomination, they make sure to do a pretty good job of sticking to the Gospel of Christ. I was actually surprised at how deep they get, and how firm they are. They mean business! If you actually want to ‘put off the old man, and put on the new’ they will be their with you every step of the way. If you are struggling with sin, or you know someone who is, by God’s grace, please make use of this ministry providing free help. They even graciously offer counselors with out pay, yet God is clearly using this ministry to transform peoples lives.
Pornography and self-gratification, lust and sexual immorality are not the only things that they address; gambling, substance abuse, self-injury, and eating issues as well. These courses too, are at no cost. No their really isn’t a catch. If you find this a resource useful, please pass it along to a brother or sister in need.

Our generation has lost what it means to be a man. This problem is well-noted by many in society, from churches to social commentators to websites like Art of Manliness that focus on teaching modern day men to recover what has been lost. Men have become accustomed to being takers and not givers, which has helped contribute to the breakdown in the family. Many of society’s ills can be traced back to this breakdown, especially considering that the greatest indicator for poverty is marital status. Men have abdicated their responsibility, so I thought it would be beneficial to look at three important ways that men have failed women, especially in this generation.
#3. We Stopped Working
The Problem: We treat our lives outside of a “job” as a recreational opportunity, devoid of responsibility.
The Analysis: Brett McKay of Art of Manliness has written how modern man’s dilemma is that…

Can you imagine the people gathering around and harassing God for not giving people equal opportunity to be priests? We don’t really know who God is, and we don’t know what true equality is. Let us seek forgiveness for our foolishness and arrogance.
16 The LORD said to Moses, 17 “Say to Aaron: ‘For the generations to come none of your descendants who has a defect may come near to offer the food of his God. 18 No man who has any defect may come near: no man who is blind or lame, disfigured or deformed; 19 no man with a crippled foot or hand, 20 or who is a hunchback or a dwarf, or who has any eye defect, or who has festering or running sores or damaged testicles. 21 No descendant of Aaron the priest who has any defect is to come near to present the food offerings to the LORD. He has a defect; he must not come near to offer the food of his God. 22 He may eat the most holy food of his God, as well as the holy food; 23 yet because of his defect, he must not go near the curtain or approach the altar, and so desecrate my sanctuary. I am the LORD, who makes them holy.’” –Leviticus 21:16-23
