The Right Way

I’ve been reading. Reading a lot of blogs about marriage and family life, homemaking and child-having. And having a lot of opinions about them, largely because said blogs are highly opinionated about how one ought to go about the aforementioned things. Which leads me to ponder – which things are worth believing “my way is THE way” about? Perhaps some are, and it is a kindness and an act of grace to point them out to others. But I think it might be worth my own while at least to accept that some ways of living, while they aren’t right for me, might be right for others.  I realize that this sounds extremely relativistic, but honestly, does there have to be one correct way to do everything? Do some fundamentals not suffice? So, with that in mind, I am going to embark on discussing my own experiences. Beginning, I think, with making laundry detergent.

(Also, I realize that I’m also telling people how to do things…but avoiding hypocrisy is not really my best skill)


Well behaved women…

This is my first attempt at a bumper sticker design that I’ve had bouncing around in my head for quite some time now.  It arose from me getting a bit tired of people boasting that “well behaved women seldom make history” and implying that poorly behaved women (naughty women?) somehow have the corner on changing the world.  This is for any fellow world-changing rule-keeping women out there.
