Two great articles (as usual) from Nancy Wilson on “Worrying the Kids Away” and education as preparation for being a wife and a mother:
“So, young women, get yourself an education. Learn all you can because you’re going to need it. You want to be one efficient, brilliant helper so this guy you married can get it done. He needs a home and he needs a family and you are the means God has appointed to bring this amazing thing about. What a delight and privilege our calling is.”
Two great videos. One from John Piper on the power of the gospel in marriage, and another from Together for Adoption on the power of the gospel in adoption (and all of parenting!).
