"Dear Mia,I haven't been keeping up with your blog but I just found it by chance and I have a few questions, if you don't mind. I'm also a Christian, and I don't necessarily believe all woman should be married young, do you think they should or just if they find the right person young, they shouldn't wait? Also do you think that a woman's only job is to be a wife and mother? Or do you think she can have a career. Please do not take my questions as being disrespectful, I'm only curious." *Miss Ellie
Thank you for your questions, Ellie! I think the best way to answer this is to share what I'm doing, because of different circumstances, not every one's situation is the same.
*I'm choosing to stay at home and my primary job (after marriage) will be wife & mother.
I think it would be wise to make an income (from the home) using homemaking skills; such as sewing, selling soap/eggs/cheese, or canned goods.
*Selling homemade/handmade goods isn't necessary, but if the opportunity is there,
that's what I'll hopefully be able to do.
*Getting married young isn't a rule, but I find it extremely practical.
I pray I will marry young so that I can work alongside (my future husband) while I'm strong and able to work hard & diligently, whatever our situation may be!
~'Career' means: n. A chosen pursuit; a profession or occupation. The general course or progression of one's working life or one's professional.
~So my personal/chosen career will be 'Homemaker'
(Gardener, cook, help meet, child-care, teacher, seamstress etc)
