“Women generally have more work-related cases of carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, respiratory diseases, infectious diseases, and anxiety and stress disorders. Social, economic, and cultural factors also put women at risk for injury and illness. While workplace exposures can affect both male and female reproduction, issues related to reproduction and pregnancy are of particular concern to women.” This is from the government’s own website!
God created women for the home. They weren’t created for the workforce. Men were created for the workforce since they have ten times the amount of testosterone than women. It was God’s curse on men’s lives after the Fall, not women’s. Our lives are to revolve in and around our home. The stress of the workforce is incredibly harmful for women as studies prove. Depression has skyrocketed among women since they left their homes. Adultery has skyrocketed too. Instead of being home caring for their husbands, children, and home, many women are caring for their bosses and strangers. This is NOT God’s will for us, women.
I worked for the first two years of my oldest daughter’s life and this is my biggest regret. I didn’t feel like I was a good wife, mother, or homemaker. I was always exhausted. It was far too much for me. (I made a video of my experience.) My 91 year old dad came to visit me last night. I told him about this. He told me he wishes he would have known. He would have made it happen for me to be home with my baby. I know he would have if we would have asked him, but we went along with the feminist agenda of having to work even after having a baby.
One woman directed me to an Instagram account called “weareteachers.” The post was called “Confessions of a Teacher Mom: It drives me crazy that having patience for other people’s kids means having less for my own.” Here are a few of the many confessions made by women who are teachers.
“It’s becoming harder and harder to balance motherhood, single motherhood especially with teaching full time. I’m tired and drained all the time.”
“My confession: spending more time and mental/ emotional/ physical energy on others kids than I am able to spend on my own. I don’t have less patience, just extremely less time. ”
“Leaving your own kids in daycare to go take care of other people’s kids.”
They can all see how being in the workforce is not right but they have believed the lie that this is what they were supposed to do; that a career and paycheck are far more important than raising one’s own children. God says otherwise. Go home, women. Take a step of faith and trust God to provide what He commands. If your husband is not on board, read “The Way Home” by Mary Pride and show him the studies she has found of the effect on children who have mothers in the workforce. Show him the government study I linked to but most of all, pray. God hears your prayers!
I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
