This is another blog about crazy, daily living! You will get to hopefully experience the flavor of our family. It's my husband and I, with our two children The kid 7 and The boy 4. We like adventure, honesty, movies, enjoying the sun, healthy living and I have a brain crammed with too many diy ideas to put to fruition, that I thought it would be fun to share with others...why not? I know it's not original, but I promise to try to make it interesting!
With the overwhelming access that we now have to professional photo cards, the options are endless! I have started a card on 4 different websites.... Tiny Prints, Shutterfly, Minted and Pear Tree Greetings. Obviously card design is a huge factor, but all of the sites have 100s to choose from. Paper quality is important, the price is important (they are just going to be thrown away!), and quality pictures.
There is a term that is not new... which refers to the equality in a marriage! Egalitarian vs complementarian! I was doing a little Google searching on this topic and came across a plethora of sides (so to speak), on how we should interpret the scriptures to define our 'roles' as men and women. I never truly gave it much thought, until I started reading Rachel Held Evans book (see virtual book club). Dan and I are both pretty easy going and when a big decision has to be made, we usually talk it over...but due to this book, I am intrigued!
I found this seemingly unbiased article, over at Patheos. Adrian Warnock takes the broad spectrum of 'camps', so that we can make a more well rounded approach to this discussion. Check out his article, I am curious as to what category we think we fall into. Don't feel pressured to put your label out there, but would you be willing to discuss it with me?
My husband is actually the one who came across her blog! He said that I needed to read one of her books and tell him about it. (He is a reader...but I think this one he was less anticipated to read, since it had "womanhood" in the title :) Well I love reading, but I especially love talking about books with others who have read it!
So of course, I enlisted one of my friends and soon a couple of others wanted to join (BAMA included). Now I invite you to take part in this discussion with us!
What does it mean to live by the scriptures? And how ultimately are we to be wives. mothers, etc.? Are we to be the negative "submissive" and always be below... meek, quiet...?
