Book Review: Mastering Motherhood .... a contemplation

This is not a book for everyone, this is written from a very conservative Bible believing perspective. But this, short to the point book, is full of conviction and has been a blessing to me personally. 

"A woman whose home is obviously out of control has been shirking her responsibilities for a very long time. She is not doing her housework "as unto the Lord." Her family, her friends who visit, her Lord and her self-esteem deserve better than sh is giving. She is letting other activities or idleness keep her from being the kind of homemaker God admires in Proverbs 31." pa 106

I have really been challenged by a couple of books that I've read to give my life fully to the cross. That I am often distracted from the things the Lord has laid before me by social media, internet, blogs, books etc... the funny thing is many of these are 'worthy distractions' which tend to be about how to be a better mother, homemaker, homesteader etc.. *sigh* 

My home isn't out of control but it's not where I know the Lord would have it. How could it be with my constant chatter on Facebook, checking e-mail, texting and flitting from this blog to that just to check on it and 1,2,3 hours later I have failed to accomplish the things the Lord had laid before me.  Over the last couple of weeks I have been slowly returning to our routine, and I'm going to have to fast or close my Facebook account. 

I truly feel called to blog in a Titus 2 style, however, that too has been neglected because I have been so pressed for time. All I've been able to manage is Weekly Wrap Ups and Pretty Happy Funny Real two link-ups I love. But still I'm just throwing my posts together instead of giving them careful thought and prayer. What happened to my time for the most part the time was being wasted fostering 'cyber relationships' instead of guiding, growing & loving the real ones right here in my midst. 

I think I may blog through this book as it's been such a blessing to me not just the kick in the pants for housework but a change in mindset. Perhaps you'd like to join me?

May the Lord Turn His Face Toward You!
