A wife's charm delights her husband, and her skill puts fat on his bones. Like the sun rising in the heights of the Lord so is the beauty of a good wife in her well-ordered home. Like the shining lamp on the holy lamp stand, so is a beautiful face on a stately figure - Sirach 26:13

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or praiseworthy - think about such things. - Php 4:8

"Woman must be a cook, but not a competitive cook, a house-school-mistress, but not a competitive school-mistress, a house decorator, but not a competitive house decorator, a dress maker but not a competitive dress maker.  She should have not one trade but twenty hobbies, she, unlike the man, may develop all her second bests...  Women were not kept at home in order to keep them narrow; on the the contrary, they were kept at home in order to keep them broad." -  Brave New Family by G. K. Chesterton


  1. What a beautiful site! I have only just found you and am putting you in my favorites. I encourage myself with these blogs every morning and then feel strong enough to face the very critical and unappreciative world. What an encouragement you are, and you are Catholic too :)

  2. Oh thank you Vicki for your lovely comment! It's very much appreciated :)
