Answers to last week's question: If I love my husband....Independent Thinker: If I love my husband I will.................. Leave the house to run errands, Christmas shop, or get my hair done during all Green Bay Packer games that do not fall on a holiday so my husband can watch the game in peace.

Sunday Shout Out – Is it ‘Sinful’ to Take Time For Yourself?

shout

Nancy Campbell has stated in yesterday and today's Quoting Quiverfull that it's selfish to take time for yourself or to stop and pamper yourself as a mother and wife in any way. No going out for a blissful massage and pedicure, no going to the local gourmet coffee shop to drink coffee and read a book, no going off to something 'adult' like a book club. It's all sacrifice all the time in the perfect world of motherhood Nancy espouses. … [Read more...]
