Keepers At Home

This spring our church started a Keepers At Home group for the girls in the church, basically similar to a Christian girl scouts group, where every month the girls get together and learn a new skill that will be useful in keeping a home someday. The pictures are from their very first meeting in March, and their Keepers At Home Awards Ceremony. I've enjoyed the opportunity to help out some at the meetings.

This past Friday night we had our first annual Keepers At Home Awards Ceremony, where we recognized the girls' accomplishments, enjoyed a slide show of all the meetings, and all the fathers spoke briefly to the girls. I found the whole evening to be such an encouragement, the whole thing was a celebration of Godly womanhood. Too often we are made to feel like we are settling for second best, or wasting our time, when we try to be Biblical women, "keepers at home"! It was really nice to see these girls being helped in this way, and though the evening was for them, I hope all the women there walked away feeling encouraged.

"......That they may teach the younger women...... to be sober, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home....that the word of God may not be blasphemed." Titus 2:4,5

Intense Debate Comments

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
