by Lori Alexander of The Transformed Wife – Men Need Gentle Women in Their Lives
Editor’s note: I left out quoting the parts about the sons of working mothers not having fatherly affection turning into convicts or workaholics. This entire post was a hot mess of word salad, it’s hard to make coherent sense or one valid point here, but the gist of it is if you do not stay home with your sons they will likely end up angry and damaged. Why are men in that culture so delicate and easily bruised if they are the most masculine of the masculine?
Many women who want to be home full time with their children have a problem with their husbands wanting the same things. Most of these husbands had mothers who weren’t home full time to nurture and give them emotional support, therefore, they don’t understand what they missed but it does affect them deeply. They usually have a hard time being emotionally close to their wives because of the lack of motherly care and affection.
The author’s solution for men these days – a gentle woman! “A gentle woman can teach a man to be gentle, respectful, and reverent of her womanhood as complementary to his own manhood.” You know, that winning them without a word by godly, chaste behavior and having a meek and quiet spirit. God knew exactly what men needed when He provided a mother to raise them and a wife to be a help meet to them when they married.
Studies have proven that boys suffer more than girls if their mom returns to work. Boys all the way up to men were created to need women in their lives to care for and encourage them.
If your husband has left you, begin memorizing and learning 1 Peter 3:1-6 and become attractive to your husband by your sweet, gentle, and feminine ways as I have written about many times before. If you are married, never take your husband for granted. Stop being critical and fault-finding of him. This will never make a good marriage. Once you love him just the way that he is and allow the Lord to be the one to convict and change him, you will find peace beyond comprehension and joy unspeakable!
