A Turtle Hunt Can be a Glorious Job.

“Mothering and homemaking are huge and glorious jobs.
What children need at age 1, 5, 6, 14, 18, what they need is simply amazing…

And what it calls forth from a woman’s creativity and a woman’s heart and her mind,
personally for each one of these little ones coming along, or just the home,
for the home where ministry can happen.

And you are not enslaved by anyone’s clock –
you can say, I am going to work my tail off for King Jesus,
but I don’t want anyone to pay me for it.

I’m going to do it right here,
in this neighbourhood,
we’re going to lavish grace on people’s lives …

…turn your family into ministry,
turn your family into a global dream for what this family might become,
what we might be together as we are home.

It is a great and glorious calling to be a mother
and a homemaker and a wife¬† …”
