We had a special time Tuesday afternoon at a Mother Daughter Tea.Â The coordinators had done an amazing job at making the time special. Everything was beautifully decorated. Sadly, we didn’t get a picture of all the pretty decorations, but you might get an idea of what the tables looked like by observing them in the background of a couple of the photos.
For the first session Mom gave Homeschooling with a Meek and Quiet Spirit, and then Sarah, Mom, and I gave Keepers at Home, a session we now have for young ladies. Because Mary was sick, she did not attend the tea, so we had to change our workshop around a little – giving Mom some of it.
We were encouraged to see so many mothers and daughters seeking to serve the Lord and their families from home. It seems so many have lost the vision of a woman staying at home and taking care of her family. I am ever so grateful to my mom for what she has invested in my life. I know that her staying home and not sending me to school has had an irreplaceable impact on my life, and I desire to keep that same vision. We want to encourage girls to have the vision to be keepers at home and to invest in their future families like their moms have invested in their lives. We are suggesting girls start to prepare for being a keeper at home some day where they are homeschooling their children and caring for their families. The Keepers at Home session grew from seeing that so many Christian young women have lost the vision of staying home and caring for a family.
â€œTo be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.â€ (Titus 2:5)
