Pregnant Women, Why Are You Working So Hard?

My deepest desire is that women feel perfectly comfortable with the idea that if they are birthing babies into the world with a husband by their side, they should not have to work 2 jobs up to the day of delivery.This lovely lady was carrying twins and also, per the photo that was uploaded with the message, has a toddler. It is not necessary or healthy to work so hard (physically) while ensuring his legacy.I don't consider a man to be standing in his healthy #masculinity if he agrees with his heavily pregnant wife working 2 jobs up to the day of her delivery. I can only assume she is going back to her two jobs with a few weeks of delivery, only to stay in the care of strangers until graduating from high school. Everything is turned upside down and there is so litt...

Family Legacy

Family Legacy: Generative families have vitality, creativity and the ability to continually reinvent themselves over generations. They are rare and unique entity that is capable of sustaining consistent control over a long period of time. They are important because unlike so many business ventures that focus on current profits, generative families can endure long-term with values that transcend profitability. They STAND for something, offering lessons that can be profitably learned not just by family business in first generation but also by non-family enterprises that want to operate with values beyond the bottom line. Generative families use their resources not just to sustain what they have but to create something new. The family extends its legacy - the family members' valu...

Why I Chose Homemaking, Part 1

By Mrs. Kuti Honestly, I felt like this was my calling, in so many ways I felt like this life chose me. I remember from a very young age wanting to have the freedom to stay home to nurture my family to their greatest selves, to be fully available to their needs, to always be present. So much so I remember when I turned 15 years old my parents and I were discussing what type ofcar I wanted for my sweet 16th birthday and I remember vividly saying I wanted a minivan lol. In my mind, I could get a toyota or honda now and knowing the history with those brands I could have it 20+ years if I took very good care of it.Plus, I already had my life planned out, married by 25 with three children by 30 years old. And by having my parents purchase my minivan then Iwouldn’t have to purchase one l...
Baby Showers Before Bridal Showers?

Baby Showers Before Bridal Showers?

Having multiple baby showers and never having had a bridal shower or been married, is the new norm. Marriage is so very much passe, they say. After all, it's not necessary to have a man around in order to have a baby, they say. Women can do it all by ourselves, they say. This is the message younger generations hear repetitively in main stream media and perhaps in their own families. However, there has to be push back. There has to come a moment when those of us who are conservative OR those of us who have already been down that road of single parenthood, finally speak the truth, despite the pressure to do otherwise. We have to realize that there is always going to be a younger generation of girls, who will one day grow into womanhood. If these girls have NEVER heard it sang, 'First ...
Should We Prioritize our Marriage Over Our Role as Parents?

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 ...

How Beyonce and Jay Z can help

I'm never going to be one to ask the uber wealthy to give up their wealth irresponsibly. They worked for it, they earned it. Their money is their business. However, what I am suggesting here is that because they have taken it upon themselves to speak out about certain social issues and have supported certain political figures, I feel that they can create GREAT change with their voice. Youth need a voice of reason in regards to abstinence and understanding the role of marriage for the purpose of family stability and economic elevation. So many of the youths who are in at-risk situations look up to these two stars. They can reach deeper and further than any political pundit or book author can. What if Beyonce were to make a decision to visually highlight her support for marriag...

The Importance of Understanding Masculinity

By Candice Smith Adelewole When I got married it was the first time in my life that I had ever lived with a man from the time my parents had gotten divorced at the age of 7. Yikes! It was the first time in all those years hearing a male voice every single day, or observing male behavior first hand on a regular basis.Being raised in a female dominated family environment didn’t prepare me for married life. I had to learn many things the hard way.I had to learn that men have feelings too, and need quiet space to think their problems out. That them saying no, isn’t necessarily out of being mean or controlling, but their hardwired instincts to protect and provide for the people they care about. After deep studying and reflecting on masculinity and men, I learned that men and women have tw...
