The Joy of Cooking

By @ahomefortheholidays I simply adore experiencing other women's homemaking through their words. So much heart and intention goes into this very necessary role of homemaker.I'm a natural homebody, so being home during this time isn't a big change. Since me and little man can't go to library story time, the thrift stores, or general appointments I've been filling up the time with flexing my cooking muscles. As a homemaker my favorite duty is cooking/baking. There's something about chopping, grating, sauteing, stirring, kneading, seasonin, frying that makes me feel at peace. I know for other housewives it's being crafty, gardening, or cleaning. I love trying new recipes(like the apple carrot spiced muffins I made. They were delicious and little man approved😊) and trying to copy cat ...

Should We Prioritize our Marriage Over Our Role as Parents?

During a discussion on one of my posts, I asked @shunaparham and found her response very insightful:"I have always called myself homemaker or housewife (rather than SAHM) ... We have children but I am a wife first so I never found "stay at home mom" to be inclusive enough. I feel it is very important to prioritize marriage over parenting because we are setting the example for our children for when they become married and have children. Marriage is first in my opinion, not children, like some people believe. Marriage sets the foundation for everything else. If the marriage (foundation) is broken, it will definitely impact the children"..What say you? Which do you prioritize in your day to day life?

A Free Black Wife

By @the.pinnacle.housewife I love being able to be home with my husband and babies. I love being able to devote my time fully to the caring of my home. I love that I'm married to a dominant, masculine man who only wants the best for his family. I love that he puts me in a position to be able to birth our babies at home, in peace, in serenity. I love the feeling I get when I would go grocery or home shopping in the mornings on weekdays and have the store to myself (except for the senior ladies and their husbands). I love that I escaped the matrix of working for the man, and instead have the pleasure of working WITH my man and get the love as well. I love that when I desire a family getaway I get it. I love that I have total control on what I do, how I do it, and when I ...

Women Need Men Now More Than Ever

Written by @iamlushparadise "We’re living in a time where women need men now more than ever. I truly believe this. This is why I broadcast my softness and my femininity loud and clear for all those to see and hear. I live and speak my love for being a Wife, the love, respect, and appreciation I have for my Husband, the joys of having home as my base and how I enjoy having my children close to me, homeschooling, etc... I am the polar opposite of what most women aspire to and what is being promoted by mainstream media to women as “progressive”. (I am a rebel 😉) I do so to be repulsive to those women who have an issue with my way of being and lifestyle (Feminists and those influenced by its doctrine) So they can take their comments and unsolicited opinions elsewhere And als...

A Tale of Two Black Americas

We are entering an interesting time as black Americans; a time where every single one of our fates will be sealed in permanency. On one end, you have black people who strongly believe they are being held back, and they want the entire country to know it. They are willing to go as far as defunding the police in their areas to give them more freedom. On the other end, there are flourishing black people who don’t harbor a victim mentality, doesn’t care what people may think of them due to skin color, and they will move themselves away from the victimized black folks to prevent them from being stuck in an immovable situation. With all this “defund the police” talk going on, black people are failing to use their brains to realize they are about to be used as lab rats by the liberals...

Forever Grateful to My Husband

Cheers!! There is so much to unpack in this beautiful share below! A well watered woman facilitates the presence of beauty, peace and prosperity for her family.  By @juanita.flowe " I never found the term stay-at-home mom fitting because I don't stay-at-home all day. I love exploring places (pre-Covid) and traveling with my family. Our home is our base, however we use the riches of this whole planet to learn, grow and contribute. I have had a career in the past, but for me, once I had children, it was difficult to balance and I did not feel as if I was fulfilling my purpose. I am much more feminine now And all of those characteristics are blossoming in me and I am much more at peace. I Am forever grateful to my husband for seeing that this lifestyle Is a blessing for our family and s...

The thought of defunding the police departments is HORRIFIC

The thought of defunding the police departments is HORRIFIC, with no guardians present. I’ll send you articles of people in a Baltimore, the city where I live, clamoring for more police protection. They defunded police and pulled back police involvement after the rioting 5 years ago for the Freddy Gray incident, and crime has shot up. In January 12 shootings in one day, 12 in 24 hours. And these over-emotional people, with no solutions want less police.We need better check and balances, yes. Sensitive training, better outlets for cops, mental health assessments, relationship with the cops patrolling and the community but defunding them, God forbid!I don’t condone what happened at all, but my father retired from the force and I have other family members in the force. Thankfully honorable...

When Men Step UP, You can Be Soft

By Candice Adewole My heart is FULL!! So many masculine men stepping up for me ( during quarantine). I cried when my friend called me on FaceTime today and asked if I had enough food and to let me know that he was representing the masculine and that if I felt scared or lonely, or anything he was there to stand strong for me. " Your tears are safe with me"...... That's divine masculinity! When they step up, you can fall back and be soft.I don't know about you, but I NEED men in my life. Masculine men add such value to my life.

I Need & Require a Strong Protector, Provider

Feminine Energy Thrives...Feminine Energy is Vulnerability when required. A Facebook friend shared amazing insight on one of my recent "controversial" posts and, with permission, I am excited to share her thoughts and beauty here on IG. I say controversial because those who feel indicted (by women who desire SAHW & SAHM life) decided to voice their dismay about the content of the post.Her:"Absolutely! I was not created to do a man's job and for that very reason it's why I'm not stressed about a job or where our cost of living will come from. I've been in hiding for years secretly knowing I felt I need a man, require a man and it's a non negotiable for me. I must have a strong provider protector in my life. So I adjust my toxicity to as low as possible so a provider protector can eas...
