Passionate Housewives Desperate for God

 This is a fabulous book that I highly recommend you read!
I'm on my second time through it right now. 
The following quotes are from this book by Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald:

"A godly keeper at home is absolutely not a lesser human being,
 a mindless robot, or a placid doormat under submission to all men;
 rather, she is created in the very image of God and of equal worth and value compared to man
 (Genesis 1:26-28). She is the crown of her husband (Proverbs 12:4),
 a helper suitable for him (Genesis 2:18).
Because she trusts God's wisdom in establishing perfect order for His creation,
 she willingly submits to her own husband as unto the Lord (Ephesians 5:22-24). 
She laughs when she hears rumors that she is an oppressed victim of a male-dominated dictatorship, because she knows that God's will is perfect and His Word timeless. 
Real women need to know that being helpers to their husbands, raising godly children, and properly managing their homes takes real work, but the rich reward a woman receives by diligently tending to the ways of her household is well worth the effort."

What role did your mother play when you were a child? 

How has that affected the way you view your role as a wife and mother? 

Do you feel passionate or dry and crusty in your current role?

"Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled." 
Matthew 5:6
