Ladies Against Feminism Re-Launch




Admittedly, most of you may already know about the exciting re-launch over at 'Ladies Against Femininsm'.  Even so I thought I would mention it, just in case some of you hadn't.  This website actually is very special to me and I'll tell you why...

In November 2005, Brian, Amy and I moved to Brisbane, Australia for a one year 'holiday'.  We were also to marry there the coming February.  We were all very excited for our 'big' move.  However once we had arrived Amy (then six years old) began to misbehave.  At most she was being rather disrespectful and defiant; most days I was 'awful' and she was going to go and live with our neighbours ..."who is a far nicer Mama than you!"  I understood that she was 'acting out' because of the changes that had happened so suddenly in her life; but all the same I felt I could not and would not tolerate bad behaviour.  I began to search the internet for help with my mothering and wifely duties...

You guessed it I happened upon 'Ladies Against Femininsm'!  Hoorah!  Just to note that Amy's behaviour dissapated after 2-3 weeks and she no longer wanted to go and live with the neighbours!  ...At first I would just go on and extract all the information I could on what a wife's duties were and how I should be mothering and as for all that 'religious stuff'...I just waded past and ignored all of that.  But the Lords scripture, referenced at LAF began to hide in my heart.  Soon I began to read more and more about biblical womanhood, printing off the articles and saving them in a file (and yes I still have them)...and so began my relationship with the Lord!

So you see, my Christian journey began at LAF, and for that reason they are very special to me as I can see the great works they are doing...for it happened to me!  Pop over and visit...

I'm with Stace! Love your testimony. I used to be the biggest feminist you ever saw. Boy, did the Lord get a hold of me, too.
