Instructions for a Godly Woman

These are the notes that I took down while listening to an audio sermon online. I thought I’d share them. If you’re interested in hearing the entire sermon, please click –> HERE <– While I don’t agree totally with everything, I do think that it contains a lot of good information. I’ve placed my notes in blue, so you can see what I disagree with and why.

1. Defraud not your husband. Our bodies belong to our husband and our husband’s body belongs to us. Defraud means to keep back from someone something that is rightfully theirs. To withhold wrongly from another what is due him. You can’t keep what is not yours. This is a very important scripture. If you give your husband the “silent treatment” you are already defrauding your husband. You might not be saying no, but you are because you are not speaking to him. If you give in to him with your head, but not with your heart, you are defrauding him.
The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. ~ I Corinthians 7:4-5

2. A saved wife may save her husband. This is the one instance when the Word tells us that an unbeliever can be saved without the Word, by the example of their wife. In this instance, a woman’s behavior is as powerful as the Word of God. We must be very careful how we behave in front of our husbands.
And the woman which hath a husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him. For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy. ~ I Corinthians 7:13-14

3. Headship Order. Jesus didn’t chafe that God was head over him, so we shouldn’t chafe over our headship. We can appeal to our head. Jesus obeyed until death. We want to fall into the headship order.
Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ. Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you. But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. ~ I Corinthians 11:1-3

4. We should cover our heads. (I believe that this is a personal choice between you and God, I don’t think that every woman is called to wear the headcovering. I choose to wear one because I feel convicted to wear one as a reminder of my place in the headship order and to be submissive to my husband and the Lord. ~ Susan) It’s a shame not to cover you head. This is a lost teaching. It’s a constant reminder of the headship order. The churches that drop the covering drop the headship order. The majority of modern churches do not teach the headship order. Wearing the cover helps you to be humble, meek, quiet and gentle. It reminds us that we represent Jesus Christ and helps us act accordingly. The way we dress affects the way that we act.
Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoreth his head, But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoreth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God. Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering. But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God. ~ I Corinthians 11:4-16

5. Likewise with long hair. (I don’t believe that all women MUST have long hair. But I do believe that the Lord wants women to be easily distinguished from men. I choose to have long hair as a conviction from the Lord. I do believe that this is another one of those instances where the decision lies between the individual person and the Lord. ~ Susan) God wanted women to have long hair. We often complain about having long hair, because it takes so much work to take care of, we consider it a burden. Do not say that something that God has given you as a glory is a burden.
Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoreth his head, But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoreth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man. For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God. Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering. But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God. ~ I Corinthians 11:4-16

6. Wives should be submissive to their husbands as they would to the Lord. Christ is the head of the church; our husband’s are the head of our homes. Being submissive is a relief and a freedom
Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. ~ Ephesians 5:22

7. We should be submissive in everything. Women who are upright have a protection (through Christ). There is a church body that is there to help.
For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the savior of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. ~ Ephesians 5:23-24

8. As it is fit to the Lord. Submit yourselves unto your own husbands. Don’t compare what other husbands want. Examine your heart and make sure your husband knows you want to please God. You must not manipulate him.
Wi
ves, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord. ~ Colossians 3:18


9. Holy dress. (For me this means that I feel called to wear dresses and/or skirts only. Other women may interpret this in a different way. Again, I don’t think that all women should wear the same style dress, but all should dress in a modest manner. ~ Susan) Modesty means not revealing your body and you should not dress to entice men or cause our brothers to sin. Not make yourself the center of attention. You don’t want to look sharp or better than others. What you wear reflects a lot about you. The way you dress reflect the way you feel. Do you want to reflect that your a Godly woman or as a worldly woman? We ought to look different than those who serve the world.
I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array. But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. ~ I Timothy 2:8-10

10. Not with gold, not with pearls. (To me, I interpret this to mean that we should not dress in a flashy way that draws attention to you. I don’t think we should disallow any particular colors or anything like that, but that we should not dress in such a way to draw too much attention to ourselves. ~ Susan) It’s flashy and draws attention to you. They upgrade the outfit and make you look classy. It makes us looks prosperous, which draws people away from God and more to the world. We should draw people to Jesus.
In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array. ~I Timothy 2:9

11. Learning in silence. Do not argue your viewpoint with men and indirectly teach men. Women should not be pastors that teach men.
Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. ~ I Timothy 2:11-12

12. If you stay in your place you will do fine if you continue in faith, charity, holiness and sobriety. Look to older women to teach your sobriety. Don’t have authority over men. Try living in faith, charity, holiness and sobriety for 1 year. Having faith will keep us from fearing the future. Charity is love in action and giving to those who need. Sobriety is cool reason. Sober is not given to heated passion; it’s calm and moderate.
And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety. ~ I Timothy 2:14-15

13. Older women teach the younger women. All older women to live in Christ should teach younger women. As your husband most things, ask older women these things. Are you asking the women the correct questions? Discuss these things with women, not questions about doctrine or church business, those questions should be asked of your husband. We should be prayerful when we discuss these things with our husbands.
The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. ~ Titus 2:3-5

14. Disobeying our husbands blasphemies the word of God. These teaching give us clear directions.
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. ~ Titus 2:5

15. Love our husbands and our children. Do others see that we love our husband? Pray that the Lord helps us to love our husbands at all times and gives us a deeper love for him. Ask God to make you love your husband. Pray that you love your husband more today than yesterday.
That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, ~ Titus 2:4

16. Our husbands can be won by our behavior if we are a chaste woman. We are to be chaste. Don’t expect to win your husband toward Christ if you dress and act in a worldly manner (carnal). Another definition of chaste is separate and pure and free from obscenity. You will notice, as you become more chaste, even very vulgar men will be less vulgar around you. Being a chaste woman is a protection for us.
Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. ~ I Peter 3:1-4

17. Develop a meek and quiet spirit that trusts in God. What they mean by quiet is the opposite of restless. Your spirit is at rest and you are not concerned about what tomorrow will bring; you are not fearful of the future.
Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear. Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. ~ I Peter 3:1-4

18. We are to act like the holy women of old times. Many people have no other Godly women in their lives. We are to be in subjection to our own husbands. God tells us to act like Sarah. You must know your enemy to fight your enemy. Our enemy is fear and amazement. Fear causes you to question your husband’s decisions and the future. Recognize your fear and conquer it. Amazement makes you ask “what is he doing??” “I don’t believe it!”. We should obey our husbands without any fear or amazement, it’s hard, but it is possible. That’s how God wants us to do it.
For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves, being in subjection unto their own husbands: Even as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement. ~ I Peter 3:5-6

Prayer Request

Please keep my grandmother, Adeen McNiel, in your prayers. She fell and broke her knee this past Thursday. She didn’t go to the hospital right away, so when my Dad got there Friday afternoon, he took her. She has a bit of an infection in the knee. She will be having knee replacement surgery some time toward the end of this next week (not sure yet when). After that, she will have to go through some therapy.

Father’s Day weekend, we had a ton of rain. We were driving on the dirt road under the Lake Aquilla Dam when I noticed something big in one of the large puddles of water at the edge of some corn fields. Turns out it was a big alligator snapping turtle.

Because of all the rain, our drive way was full of water. Our bar ditch was running like a river. While out there, Colt caught a crawdad in the driveway. This started a huge crawdad hunt on the part of Marty, Colt and Riley!

More crawdad hunting

Even more crawdad hunting

A bucket full of crawdads. The guys ended up catching 14 of them, which they kept releasing and re-catching.

some bloomers I made. I was going to make them shorter, but since I really neaded a slip as well, I made them longer so I could use them as a slip/bloomer combo…Colt started calling them my “Blips”. LOL!

What’s a gal to do when she wants to dress up her bloomers and doesn’t have any lace or ribbon?? Why she zig zag stitches along the hem with a pretty color thread :0)

These are some shorts that I made Riley this week

These are 2 skirts I made this week. The blue skirt, I also made a matching triangle headcover. I would have worn it, but my hair was wet and I wanted to wait until it was dry. I’ll try to get a photo up of my triangle covers soon.

This is a camoflauge skirt that I made this week. Marty loves camo and has asked me several times to make a skirt out of camo. Well, back in April, I found this camo material at Walmart for $2 a yard. It’s really a nice weight fabric, not the cheap stuff. I thought about making some shorts for Colt, but he already has several pairs of camo shorts. So when I was going through my fabric box the other day, I ran across it and decided to finally make that camo skirt. Marty was a happy camper about it today when he came home and saw it. It’s pretty heavy, so I’ll probably wear it more often in the cooler months.

Well, I’m out of here for the night. I have several things written and I’ll start posting them over the next few days.

Offline AGAIN

We has some unexpected car repair expenses come up, so we had to use our internet payment to help pay for them. Hopefully, we’ll be back online in the next 2 weeks once we get everything caught up. I just wanted to let everyone know that all is well here so no one would worry. I’ll be checking my email again on the weekend only and I’ll try to update when I can. Miss y’all already, but I’ve been having fun sewing for myself!!

That Period Post

To my few men readers, you will probably want to stop reading right now, as this article is of a VERY feminine nature and could quite possibly qualify as MORE than you want to know (LOL!)

Over the past several months I’ve been doing some research on natural menstrual care. Since giving birth last September, I’ve been having really bad PMS symptoms. I’ve been bleeding heavier than usual, as well as have some pretty sever mood swings and cramps. So, I decided to research it and see if I could find a natural relief for these symptoms. Here are some things that I ran across that might help.

1. Dong Quai (Angelica Root) – Relieves cramps and other PMS symptoms. It also acts as a diuretic
2. Cramp Bark – Anti-spasmatic, Relieves cramps.
3. Kava Kava – Relieves cramps, induces relaxation, acts as a diuretic.
4. Red Raspberry – Relieves cramps, decreases menstrual bleeding
5. Black Haw – Relieves cramps, calms nervous system.
6. Rosemary – Relieves cramps
7. Black Cohosh (Do not use if you are pregnant or have any type of chronic disease) – stabilizes mood swings. Acts as a diuretic
8. Strawberry Leaf – Stabalizes mood swings
9. Valerian Root – Stabilizes mood swings, induces relaxation, relieves cramps and nervousness
10. Peppermint – Stabilizes mood swings,
11. Blessed Thistle (must be handled with care to avoid toxic skin effects) – Hormone balancing
12. False Unicorn Root – Hormone balancing, cramps
13. Fennel Seed (should not be taken during pregnancy and may provoke allergic reactions of the skin and respiratory tract.) – Hormone balancing, cramps
14. Sarsaparilla Root – Hormone balancing, increases energy, diuretic
15. Squawvine – Hormone balancing
16. Corn Silk – Diuretic
17. Dandelion – Diuretic
18. Hawthorn – Diuretic
19. Feverfew (should not be used during pregnancy) – Migraines, cramps
20. Pau d’Arco – protects against yeast infections
21. Wild Yam – contains natural progesterone, relieves cramps, headaches, mood swings, depression irritability and insomnia
22. Yarrow – (interferes with the absorption of iron and other minerals) – diuretic, helps alleviate bleeding
23. Nettle – diuretic, relieves cramps, good for anemia
24. Alfalfa – diuretic, balances hormones, helps alleviate bleeding
25. Birch – diuretic, relieves cramps
26. Primrose – relieves cramps, helps alleviate heavy bleeding

I personally take an herbal combination supplement from Nature’s Sunshine called Menstrual Reg. I have been taking it for several months and have noticed an improvement in the intensity of my PMS symptoms. It contains, Lady’s Mantle Aerial Parts, Shepherd’s Purse Aerial Parts, Yarrow Aerial Parts, Yarrow Leaf & Flower Extract, Black Haw Root, Nettle Leaves, Sarsaparilla Root, Chaste Tree Fruit Concentrate and False Unicorn Root. I’m going to add Red Raspberry, Primrose, Valerian Root and Alfalfa to this supplement.

Another thing I’ve been looking into is making my own cloth pads. I have found some patterns that I like and over the next couple of weeks, I will be making some to try out. I’m going to try some of the patterns found here… http://www.labyrinth.net.au/~obsidian/mi-clothpad2.html. I already have some flannel, I just need to pick up some cheap terry cloth wash rags and one of those water proof baby mattress pads. When I do get around to making some, I will post pictures and/or a tutorial. I would like to hear how these have worked out for other ladies!

I’ve also recently had a comment from Lynne

Susan,This is a very unrelated comment, but I did not know where to put it. I have tried a product that I really like, and I wanted to pass this info on to a few like minded people who might also like it.I read several small farm/gardening blogs, and one I like is pocketfarm.com. Several weeks ago, pocketfarm was writing about her Diva menstrual cup.Basically it is a soft, silicone cup that is reusable month after month. It replaces tampons, and I have found it to be a lot better than tampons.I bought one to try at our local Whole Foods, primarily because I knew I could return it there if it didn’t work for me. It was pricey, about $29 with tax.I used it last month, and it took me several days to get it to work right because it has to be placed correctly. Now that I have the hang of it, I absolutely love it. It holds more than a super tampon, needs to be changed less often, and I don’t have to carry around a purse full of supplies.Over time, you will save $ using it (it costs about the same as 6 boxes of tampons), and it is “green” because you are eliminating a lot of trash by no longer buying tampons/pads. I hope you don’t mind me passing this on to you and your readers.

Now, I don’t know if I’ll try the Diva cup, but it’s certainly something to look into. If I remember correctly I recently saw some sort of thing similar to this at Walmart the other day. I’ll have to look again this weekend. Has anyone used one of these things? I would like to hear how it’s worked for other ladies.

Questions Answered

Sorry I’ve been so long getting to these!
Question: Susan~On a post that you had yesterday – I believe you said something about making some bloomers. I was just wondering where you found a pattern for bloomers. I am looking for something like that and have not been able to find anything. Thanks, Lisa = )
Answer: Lisa, I actually use a pattern for pajama bottoms. I believe it’s a Simplicity It’s So Easy Pattern, I bought it at Walmart for under $4. I just shorten the leg length and add elastic at the pant leg bottom. This year, I’m going to make some with and without the elastic. I make them where they come just above the knee.
Question: Hi Susan!I love Christy too! Did you know that the entire series was just released on DVD? Guess what’s on my Christmas list, lol!! . Lisa
Answer: I do know that, and we bought it about a month ago. I spent the entire next week watching all the episodes. I really LOVE the series. Why can’t they do more things like that on TV now days. We don’t have cable or satillite, so we can’t watch some of the good made for cable movies they put on the Hallmark channel. I’m now trying to save up for the different seasons on DVD of “Little House on the Prairie” and “The Waltons”!

Friday Update

This weekend is going to be spent cleaning house. We are all banding together to clean, clean, clean!! Marty doesn’t have to work on Saturday (at least not as of this morning). Marty’s got to do some work on the suburban. The brakes on the right front are going out. Hopefully, it won’t cost too much. I also imagine we’ll be doing a little bit of garage sale-ing on Saturday, but not a lot, we have too many bills due and now the work that needs to be done on the suburban. When it rains it pours! But that’s okay, I know that God will provide for our needs. I really want to do a little sewing, but this weekend is just not a good time for it. Too many other things that NEED to be done first. So far this week, I got the majority of the used homeschool book that I ordered from Amazon. I still need to get 3 more. Buying them used this way is going to save us a lot of money. I only have to buy a few more things to have all of the curriculum for next year! YEA!!! This week I’ve been working on lesson plans for next year. Trying to get everything all knocked out and ready for September.

Yesterday we made more homemade chips. My kids LOVE these things and they are so easy to make! You just heat preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then I take the cookie sheet and spray it with some oil (I use olive oil). I break the tortillas into 4ths (I use corn or sprouted grain tortilla-Ezekiel brand). I place the tortilla pieces on the cookie sheet and then spray them again with the olive oil. Then I season them. Mostly I use salt and pepper, but they are really good with jalapeno salt or fajita seasoning. I really like them sprinkled with salt and a little garlic powder. I put them in the oven for a little bit (haven’t ever really timed it!), I just watch until they start to brown and are crisp. The last time they came out too brown, so I will probably need to play around with the oven temperature. Next time I make them I’ll try heating the oven to 300 degrees. These are just so yummy, they are MUCH better than store bought chips and are so much healthier. They are baked and made out of much better quality organic tortillas. I often make up batches of these when we have beans. They make a great lunch served with refried beans, homemade queso and homemade fresh salsa. The kids LOVE when I serve that for lunch!
Fresh from the bath and ready for bed, the super hero Riley-boy, tries on his favorite superhero cape. LOL! Riley loves putting on things as capes. This is his current favorite! It’s a curtain that I got in a box of fabric at a garage sale a few weeks back. Kids just crack me up!

Review – The Case For a Creator by Lee Strobel


I REALLY wanted to like this book. I first found out about it after watching the documentary based on the book. Colt really enjoyed the documentary and I thought that the book would be good for him to read for science. First of all, I have to admit that I have not finished this book. There are two reasons why, 1.) it’s very hard to understand, especially if you’re not into science. There are lots of technical terms and it’s not written in a plain manner for the common person. and 2.) I don’t agree with everything that I’m reading. Unless the author changes his opinion towards the end of the book (which I HAVE NOT FINISHED YET), he believes that the world is millions of year old vs. thousands and he believes in the big bang. While I don’t agree with either, it would have still been an interesting read IF I had been able to understand most of it.

I can’t personally recommend this book to anyone, BUT if you are of a more scientific mind and understand these things then you might give it a try. Personally, I found trying to read this book much like pulling teeth…painful! I might possibly buy the kids version (The Case for a Creator for Kids or The Case for a Creator Student Editio)of this book and try reading it, although I don’t know if I’d allow Colt to read it, as from what I’ve read so far, it doesn’t agree with our beliefs. The book is really well written and Lee Strobel’s personal story is very interesting, I just had a hard time following along with all the scientific lingo. I will continue to read this book to the end, but I’m not sure that my opinion will change. When I do finish it (which could take MONTHS!) and if my opinion does change, I’ll post a new review.

Tag, I’m It

“For this meme, each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.”

  1. I would rather run around barefooted than with shoes on.
  2. I love anything with sunflowers on it…they are such HAPPY FLOWERS!
  3. I have a brain full of useless/odd information, that is unless I were going to be on Jeapordy or some other trivia game show, then it wouldn’t be so useless, would it!
  4. I’m related to Andrew Jackson, Robert E. Lee and, oh yeah, the guy who plays Alan Spaulding on “The Guiding Light” (Ron Raines is my Dad’s 1st cousin so I guess he’s my 2nd cousin??).
  5. I don’t like watermelon and bananas, but I love watermelon and banana flavored candy and popsicles.
  6. I have a hard time getting rid of books. I have a hard time passing up books at garage sales and thrift stores. I am nearly always draw to books immediately in any store, garage sale or thrift store. I really need to get Marty to build more book shelves for me….or I need to get rid of some books!
  7. I’ve worn glasses since the 3rd grade.
  8. I’m one of the world’s biggest pack rats

I know that I’m suppose to pick 8 people to tag for this meme, but instead, if you’re reading this, consider yourself tagged. LOL!
