I grew up in the public schools with a working mom and I was fed the line: "Don't be the nurse, be the doctor!" You know that feminism is something I really, really struggle with. But I also struggle with how some parts of evangelicalism have swung the opposite direction, in glorifying feminity by way of long, pretty dresses, not sending girls to college, only training them to be homemakers.
I guess I lean toward some of the feminist ideals I grew up with, but I know that most of those are unbiblical. On the other hand, I don't particularly like some of the alternatives set before me.
I want to start changing the way I think of being a mother and home educator. If I could start to view it as my profession, maybe I would take more joy in it. Maybe that would develop into a sense of calling on my life.
Best go get ready for church and stuff all this stuff down into my heart and put on my smiley face. :)
