The Importance of a Mother in the Home

I am briefly interrupting the current series on the The Loveliness of Christ to recommend a post on a different blog. has posted the following article: “The Importance of a Mother in the Home.” It is definitely worth reading and contemplating, especially in light of the upcoming “Daycare Generation.” I couldn’t agree more with her comments and observations, and I give it a hardy “amen!”


About Elizabeth

I am a sinner, saved by grace striving to increase in the knowledge of my Savior and His precious Word each day. The reader should know that there are a few presuppositions with which I approach this blog: 1) I believe in the biblical gospel, which basically purports that all mankind is born under the curse of sin (due to the sin of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden). Therefore, man is separated from God and can have no relationship with God because He is perfectly holy, not even able to look upon sin. Unfortunately, God is also perfectly just and must not only separate Himself from sin, but must also punish it. In order to reconcile man to Himself, God, the Father, sent God, the Son, down to earth to live as a man and take our sins upon Himself on the cross. While on the cross, God, the Son, bore the full weight of the wrath of God, the Father, against our sins in order that we who believe in Him might be set free from the curse of our sin. God, the Son, Jesus Christ, died as a propitiation for our sin in order to appease God, the Father's, holy and just character, redeem us from sin, and reconcile those who believe in this gospel to God, the Father. 2) I am primarily writing to those who already believe in this biblical gospel. In other words, this blog is not focused on evangelizing the lost, but edifying believers. 3) I believe that the Christian Bible is the very word of God. Therefore, it is completely inerrant, infallible, sufficient, and authoritative in the life of a believer.

  1. Thank you Elizabeth. And it was a consultant reviewing my business who made me realise just how important it is. I mean, I always knew but just hadn’t put it into words the way he had, till we discussed it. Thanks for sharing here.

      Dear Kathie,

      Its amazing to think about the many means that the Lord uses in our lives to accomplish His purposes for us. For you it was a consultant, for Balaam (in the Old Testament), He used a donkey! But our Lord knows us intimately (Ps 139) and knows exactly how to get our attention, so I trust that your encounter with the consultant was no accident. And our Lord is gleaning fruit from your obedience to encourage other women (like ME) to order their lives & homes biblically. 🙂

      Thank you for your testimony of obedience and your blog.
