So, I read a blogpost today that informed me that March is the official Women’s History Month. I just so happen to be reading an amazing book regarding women…and the most powerful woman that has ever lived.
Have you ever wondered why most women are not happy in their lives? They were told that they “could have it all,” (whatever that may mean) and they swallowed that lie…hook, line, and sinker. Families are floundering, and actually torn apart. Women are attempting to find happiness where it is impossible to find, and men are confused as to what their role is.
People are confused and deceived. There are not many who truly know their worth and understand what true happiness is.
We can see the unrest and loss of dignity in a world where everyone is led to believe that they must be selfish…that they must be happy every minute, and relationships and marriage only works when “I only do the things that I want to do,” and “I only want to do things that make me happy.”
Really? Is that truly where happiness and love reside…in a heart that only strives toward oneself?
When I look around and see the depression, numbness, anger, sadness, and bitterness all around me, in a world where we have the most material things that we could desire…homes, food, water, entertainment, online access, education…I have to wonder WHY.
I have had a book sitting on my bookshelf for awhile . I picked it up the other day and started reading.
WOW, WOW, WOW. And WOW.
It describes all that is currently happening with women, men, families, and our country. The author completely explains the steps that got us to this point, and the hows, whys and the whos that led us to where we are today.
Please pick up a copy of this book. It will open your eyes to truths and facts that have been happening right in front of us…we were sucked in. Bit by bit.
It all sounded so great…having it all…until it didn’t.
We all kept trying to persevere…we must be doing it wrong! Surely if we hang in there and do what “they” tell us to do, we will be happy.
The Anti-Mary Exposed Rescuing the Culture from Toxic Feminity by Carrie Gress will change your perception of what “is.” It will challenge you, and may be the perfect thing to read at the start of Lent. Or anytime that you are looking for Truth. May God bless you in your search
