I had found this really good article.  I had to put it here because I hear all the time that dressing modest and feminine and being a keeper at home is a heart thing and no one else has to do it only me.  Either we follow Jesus Christ or we don't.  

Don’t Follow Your Heart

Article by 
Staff writer,
“Follow your heart” is a creed embraced by billions of people. It’s a statement of faith in one of the great pop cultural myths of the Western world, a gospel proclaimed in many of our stories, movies, and songs.
Essentially, it’s a belief that your heart is a compass inside of you that will direct you to your own true north if you just have the courage to follow it. It says that your heart is a true guide that will lead you to true happiness if you just have the courage to listen to it. The creed says that you are lost and your heart will save you.
This creed can sound so simple and beautiful and liberating. For lost people it’s a tempting gospel to believe.

Is This the Leader You Want to Follow?

Until you consider that your heart has sociopathic tendencies. Think about it for a moment. What does your heart tell you?
Please don’t answer. Your heart has likely said things today that you would not wish to repeat. I know mine has. My heart tells me that all of reality ought to serve my desires. My heart likes to think the best of me and worst of others — unless those others happen to think well of me; then they are wonderful people. But if they don’t think well of me, or even if they just disagree with me, well then, something is wrong with them. And while my heart is pondering my virtues and others’ errors, it can suddenly find some immoral or horribly angry thought very attractive.
“No, our hearts will not save us. We need to be saved from our hearts.”
The “follow your heart” creed certainly isn’t found in the Bible. The Bible actually thinks our hearts have a disease: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?” (Jeremiah 17:9). Jesus, the Great Physician, lists the grim symptoms of this disease: “out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander” (Matthew 15:19). This is not leadership material.
The truth is, no one lies to us more than our own hearts. No one. If our hearts are compasses, they are Jack Sparrow compasses. They don’t tell us the truth; they just tell us what we want. If our hearts are guides, they are Gothels. They are not benevolent; they are pathologically selfish. In fact, if we do what our hearts tell us to do, we will pervert and impoverish every desire, every beauty, every person, every wonder, and every joy. Our hearts want to consume these things for our own self-glory and self-indulgence.
No, our hearts will not save us. We need to be saved from our hearts.

This Is the Leader You Want to Follow

Our hearts were never designed to be followed, but to be led. Our hearts were never designed to be gods in whom we believe; they were designed to believe in God.
If we make our hearts gods and ask them to lead us, they will lead us to narcissistic misery and ultimately damnation. They cannot save us, because what’s wrong with our hearts is the heart of our problem. But if our hearts believe in God, as they are designed to, then God saves us (Hebrews 7:25) and leads our hearts to exceeding joy (Psalm 43:4).
Therefore, don’t believe in your heart; direct your heart to believe in God. Don’t follow your heart; follow Jesus. Note that Jesus did not say to his disciples, “Let not your hearts be troubled, just believe in your hearts.” He said, “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me” (John 14:1).
“Don’t follow your heart; follow Jesus.”
So, though your heart will try to shepherd you today, do not follow it. It is not a shepherd. It is a pompous sheep that, due to remaining sin, has some wolf-like qualities. Don’t follow it, and be careful even listening to it. Remember, your heart only tells you what you want, not where you should go. So, only listen to it to note what it’s telling you about what you want, and then take your wants, both good and evil, to Jesus as requests and confessions.
Jesus is your shepherd (Psalm 23:1John 10:11). Listen to his voice in his word and follow him (John 10:27). Let him be, in the words of a great hymn, the “heart of [your] own heart whatever befall.” He is the truth, he is the way, and he will lead you to life (John 14:6).

An article by a pastor I thought was good

I think he is right in what he says.

To any woman or man who dresses inappropriately I say this: Until God has become your treasure, until your own sin has become the thing you hate most, until the word of God is your supreme authority that you feel to be more precious than gold, sweeter than honey, until the gospel of Christ’s death in your place is the most precious news in the world to you, until you have learned to deny yourself short-term pleasures for the sake of long-term joy and holiness, until you have grown to love the Holy Spirit and long for his fruit more than man’s praise, until you count everything as loss compared to the supreme value of knowing Christ, your attitude toward your clothing and your appearance will be controlled by forces that don’t honor Christ.

But I disagree in not teaching ladies what is modest.  Because honestly, women have no clue.  Why would they have a clue.  There is nothing in our culture that would teach a lady how to behave or dress or anything.  I think the attitude that we do not teach people how to live Godly lives is wrong.  Paul in the Bible spent a lot of time teaching the Gentiles because at the time the Gentiles didn't have a clue because they were not raised up like the Jewish were at the time.

I've moved

Hi Ladies,
I've not had much time for my blog.  I've moved from New Mexico to Idaho.  That was a really long trip as the states are pretty far apart.  As soon as we settle I hope to be writing on my blog again and who knows, maybe some ladies will allow me to help them in their own road to becoming more feminine and modest.

Far Above Rubies Modest Online Store

I just purchased a dress from this wonderful store.  She makes all the clothes so I was able to have her make the sleeves shorter and the waist larger.  She names her store from proverbs 31:10 Who can find a virtuous woman for her price is far above rubies.

Take a look at her store.  Her prices are really reasonable.  She says she started the store because she and her daughters could find nothing feminine and modest in the stores.  So this is really a ministry because now days if you find modest clothing they are ranging from 80 to 120 dollars for a modest dress.

A post about being a keeper at home

Godly Wives: Keepers at Home

The aged women, likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, Teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed” – (Titus 2:3-5).

   We need sermons today exhorting women to pursue being godly mothers and wives in the face of satanic attack against the Godly home. We need to protect them with the sword of God’s truth. How this nation needs Godly wives and mothers. How we need grandmas (aged women) who will be holy women of God like Sarah and not only be doers of God’s Word, but teach the younger women to be also. The younger women are being taught by the world and TV and so become worldly.

   The antichrist spirit is applying tremendous pressure to get women out of the home. The devil attacks God’s Word of truth that says wives are to be “keepers at home.” Satan has been very successful today in getting wives to be full-time career women instead of full-time mothers and wives and the consequences are catastrophic. When I think of the effect this has on millions of children, I sometimes cry. There is an evil antichristian spirit of anti-motherhood that’s sweeping the world today and only the born again saints that will stand on God’s truth can escape its effects. No unsaved worldly church member will be able stand against it.

   The divorce rate is 60% today. Don’t follow the wicked world, especially in the area of family, because it will affect the next generations as well. Grandmas who become working mothers outside the home are teaching daughters and granddaughters to work outside the home and leave others to mother their children, is destroying the American family. Stand on God’s Word – be a “keeper at home” and survive this satanic onslaught. Don’t follow the wicked Jezebel-feminist crowd. Ladies, keep house or you may lose it.

   And even wives with no children are to be “keepers at home.” It protects the marriage by keeping wives from mixing daily with other men and ungodly women on the job. A leading cause of divorce is adultery on the job. A woman’s home is her place of protection and security. Husbands – keep her at home and you’ll keep your home.

   It is written – “Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget…” – (Is.49:15). Millions of women are doing just that today and institutional day care and the world are designed to encourage her to forget. A woman places her child in day care and carries the baby’s picture to work. She’s a very foolish woman, following the world instead of God’s Word. Thirty million children are being cared for by others while mothers work. They buy the child beautiful ‘things’ but send them to others to mother. Working mothers are looking for anyone to parent their children. Big expensive empty houses is normal today. Big expensive empty kitchens and nobody cooking in them is normal today.

   Children in America are ‘starving’ for love and attention and spiritual training and for their parents to notice them and love them enough to spend their time with them. They don’t need more things; what children need most can’t be bought with money. And don’t tell me it’s the high cost of living today that forces the women to abandon their children, it’s the cost of high living. Every child is at risk of being abandoned by his or her mother today. Don’t we already have enough despair and violence and suicide among our youth – do we really want more? That’s what we’ll get if children are not wanted and aren’t raised properly in the home.

   Women are speaking loud and clear today. “I want what I want. I want what pleases me and me alone and nobody else dare impinge upon my desires. I’m not going to take responsibility for anyone else, not even my children.” Abortion shows more than anything the utter disregard that women have toward their children. Take the pill, have as much sex as you want, don’t have children and be tied down to sacrifice. If you get pregnant, murder the consequences, it’s legal. Almost two million babies a year in the U.S. are murdered in the womb, 65 million since 1973. And what about all the children who are not wanted after they’re born? Hear God’s Word. “I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully” – (I Tim.5:14). Christian women are certainly giving occasion to be spoken against today. (Vs.15) says – “For some are already turned aside after Satan.” How? By not being a Godly Christian mother and keeper at home.

   We hear much about women’s rights and feminism, pushing the mothers into working outside the home. We need to hear more testimonies by born again Christian women today saying “I’m not working outside my home. I’m going to stay home and raise my baby and be a good wife.” Husbands don’t be a wimp – “keep her at home.” Don’t push her into working outside the home to pay for your greeds. Women – don’t be rebellious to God’s Word and follow the world to the destruction of your family. Be the greatest thing you can be – a Godly mother and wife. She’s getting hard to find today – “Her price is far above rubies” –(Prov.31:10). A precious jewel indeed.

   “Children are an heritage of the Lord, and the fruit of the womb is his reward” – (Ps.127:3). Instead of calling the baby “The fruit of the womb,” they call it a tissue or fetus. It makes it easier to kill that way. “Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants around thy table” – (Ps.128:3). We farm our children out to daycare. We separate children from their families by putting them into warehouses known as daycare centers. They are ‘mothered’ by several different people who dare not discipline them properly or raise them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. The child never gets the love and time and attention that mother could give them. Many are sexually abused. Many are bringing their children to grandmother to take care of and making grandmother rear a second family when she’s too old. There is now a new day care frontier: your baby on the job. Last year 29% of companies allowed mothers to bring their babies to work. Baby-lonUSA – amen.

   Nurse your babies. Nursing ensures that time and attention will be devoted to children during nursing – the child is comforted. “That ye may suck, and be satisfied with the breast of her consolations; that ye may milk out, and be delighted…” – (Is.66:11). How many million of children are not being comforted by their mothers during nursing today? Jesus prophesied of these end days as He carried His cross – “Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the papswhich never gave suck. Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us” – (Lk.23:28-30). Signs of the second coming of Christ in wrath, barren wombs and dry breasts and that’s what happening today. No babies, no nursing – the great tribulation comes soon.

Cooking and cleaning can wait for tomorrow,
For babies grow up, we’ve learned to our sorrow.
So quiet down cobwebs and dust go to sleep,
I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep.

 This picture of mother and baby in a rocking chair makes a powerful statement. She stands against the powerful influences of today and takes the time to be a godly mother and enjoy her child. Keep at home – keep God’s Word – (Lk.11:28).

   According to reports among women who work, the more they work outside the home, the more likely they are to divorce. They don’t need their husband to support them, or she falls in ‘love’ with a co-worker. Two thirds of divorces are by women. The whole media is pushing careers for women today. Beware of it ladies – don’t follow the wicked world. Be a Godly housekeeper or your house will be put up for sale after your divorce.

   Many two-career families in effect, live as married singles. Separate interest, schedules, preoccupations, sometimes even separate budgets, then they are separated by divorce. She works to pay for a $200,000 house and all the things in it. Jesus said, “Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth” – (Lk.12:15). The husband’s income is enough – don’t covet. Sometimes her job doesn’t even pay off money –wise. It costs more for her to earn her paycheck than she earns. Taxes are 30% and she needs a car with repairs and gas and hairdos and clothes etc. It’s a great cost to them and their marriages and their children. Then there’s child care costs, going out to eat and buying prepared food at twice the cost because they have no time to cook or shop around for deals. Do they ever sit down and count the costs?

   Many fathers are full-time housewives today, stay at home dads. They stay at home and mother the children while mother works – totally crazy and anti-Bible. When Adam and Eve sinned they were cursed with labor and then death – (Gen.3:16-19). The man was to labor outside the home and the women to labor in childbirth and raise the children and labor in the home being a good housewife. The man is to labor and provide for his family – (I Tim.5:8). He is to be the breadwinner and she cooks the food. Now we have almost no real men left. They refuse to shoulder the responsibility of supporting their family and their wives go to work. They want new things and their wives must pay for them and support themselves – shame on them. Women are having to bear both curses today: they labor with children and in their home and labor in providing a check and many fall apart under the strain. Men ought to be thankful she can’t put both curses on him. Women should be keepers at home. Most of the time, when a man’s wife works outside the home, he loses his headship.

   A high percentage of daycare centers are in churches. They refuse to preach the truth on the family and instead capitalize and make much money on this heartrending business. And then they deceive even more and call it a ministry.

   Working mothers have no time for church revivals or cooking for the poor or witnessing to others or teaching the Word of God to their children. Time is translated love not money. Daycare centers are germ factories, they catch all their diseases from other children. Many sick children are brought there because mother must work. We desperately need our women back in the home. Don’t be covetous – “Be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” – (Heb.13:5). My God shall provide all your needs, but not greeds.

   So many believe the lie that you can be baptized with water into the church of Christ, even as an infant. That’s heresy and a lie of Satan. John the Baptist, who baptized with water said about Jesus Christ – “he shall baptize with the Holy Ghost” – (Mt.3:11). No baptism outwardly can ever wash away your sins inwardly. Only the blood of Christ can – “unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood” – (Rev.1:5). Receive the Spiritual baptism of the Holy Spirit – “For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body…” – (I Cor.12:13).

   Repent of your sins and by faith believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness of sins and you will be saved and become a new born again creature in Christ – (2 Cor.5:17). You will be born again and baptized by the same Holy Spirit into the body of Christ and become the bride of Christ. You can have eternal life instead of eternal death in the lake of fire- “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son” – (I Jn.5:11). Do not spurn the grace and love of God in His beloved Son on the cross. Receive Him as Savior today. Be a part of the family of God and then you will know how to rear a Godly family.

Be a keeper at home or you may lose your home.

Did God order wives to Obey their husbands?

I never thought God saw the Christian wife as a dog.  You know, bark and they bark, sit and they sit. etc.  But some Christian ladies believe God said just that.  Above is a link that explains about respecting the husband.  Also doesn't everyone know that the bible states that the husband is to treat his wife like Christ treats the church?  Later I will be giving bible verses etc. so no lady thinks their job in life is to be abused by their husbands.  That is not what being a keeper of home means or what having the husband as the head means either.  

Women have a right to respect.

I have an article that I think is very important.  It is about controlling men and how dysfunction can become if you marry such a man.  I recently stopped being on a blog because the owner was trying very hard to convince ladies if they are Christian to marry the most dysfunction man they could.  That even if he is a murderer, rapist, and other horrible person that if a woman were truly Christian and obeyed everything he said that he would change and become a perfect Christian.  First of all no one one Earth is a perfect Christian.  Only Jesus was perfect and in case you haven't noticed not every person during his time became Christian.  So why is it that we lowly human's striving to become more like Jesus be expected to make everyone be perfect Christians like Jesus.  This is just wrong.  We spread the seeds like in the parable of

The Parable of the Sower
Matthew 13: 3-9 / Mark 4: 1-14 / Luke 8: 4-16

Matthew 13: 3-9
13:3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;

13:4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side,
and the fowls came and devoured them up:

13:5 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth:
and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:

13:6 And when the sun was up, they were scorched;
and because they had no root, they withered away.

13:7 And some fell among thorns;
and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:

13:8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit,
some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

13:9 Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

  Jesus never said in the Bible or anywhere else that if we are really Christians that we would make everyone Christian and perfect like Jesus.  Anyway if we were perfect, why would we need Jesus Christ saving grace. 

If a lady isn't careful she can wind up with a controlling man.  Check out this article and find out how awful a marriage with a person like that can be.

Another good post from Transformed Wife.

I love this site.  She is now stating that we ladies listen to the Communist than to God.  I agree with her.  It is important to follow the Lord Jesus and be keepers at home.  click on the link to read the rest of this wonderful post.

Wear a Dress

I found a new website that sells simple and modest dresses, slips and belts for the dresses.  Take a look they may have something you will like.
