Biblical Woman's Liberation - Quit Work & Come Home

"When women work for their own husbands and make their own families successful, they enjoy all the benefits and none of the heartaches of the nonsensical work-family 'balance'. Being a part of a family is work. And it's hard work. But it's rewarding because it is done for and with our own kith and kin. We aren't selling our labor to strangers or working thankless hours to please a man we don't love. Choosing to make our husbands successful means we enjoy the rewards of work and family at the same time--no balancing act required other than the ordinary everyday decisions about priorities and goals that are a normal part of life."

This from an article, "Quit Work & Come Home - Thanks, We're Ahead Of This Curve" is one of many great quotes. We had a hard time settling on one. But honestly, we have similarly found this applies to daughters as well. There's nothing more rewarding than being trusted with the labor and interests of our father's vision.
