Passionate Housewives: Desperate for God


Oh ladies!!!! A wonderful new book will be out soon!! Jennie Chancey (Ladies Against Feminism) and Stacy McDonald ("Raising Maidens of Virtue") have collaborated on a new book entitled "Passionate Housewives: Desperate for God".

Here's a little bit about it from Mrs. McDonald's blog...
Have you struggled to reconcile God’s vision of virtuous womanhood with worldly myths that marginalize and mock the role of the homemaker? Do you wrestle with cultural messages that demean the homemaker’s calling and exalt instead the emotionally androgynous power-woman—the wife whose worth is measured only by the degree of her ambition, the shape of her body, or her money-making skills? Such is the image of the “desperate housewife” that the modern media, culture, and feminism are promoting with great energy.(You can read more here.)

I so look forward to reading this book!! The only problem is that I have to wait about a month until it comes out- oh dear!!

I was also wondering if you or your bloggie readers could help me. (You always have such helpful tips!) I am trying to find traditional ways of cleaning since I'm 7mo pregnant and can't be around harsh cleaning chemicals and also, well the "old ways" of doing things seem to work so well :)

Any tips? I'm particularly interested in unclogging drains, being rid of mold/mildew in bathroom, bleaching (?) sink and tub....

Thanks!
