I’m a submissive housewife.

That statement alone should give you an idea for whether or not you’re going to enjoy my content. Whether you will read it and be repeatedly and increasingly infuriated or read it and chuckle to yourself quietly as you secretly agree with more than you’re willing to admit. I hope either way that it’s at least entertaining. I didn’t have enough followers on social media to risk offending all of them at once. Hence this blog has emerged as an outlet for my scandalous thoughts.

Stop now while you still can. If you’ve taken a glance at the different titles and have already started concocting a scathing review to post on twitter, this may not be the site for you. That being said, the Lord works in mysterious ways (Isaiah 55:8-9). Who’s to say that this vexing collection of views doesn’t ultimately convict your wicked heart? Oops, now I’ve really lost you.

I have spent a considerable amount of time reading and listening and studying in my pursuit of the truth. This has predictably lead me to grow more and more reformed in my convictions as a follower of Christ. What has surprised me through this journey is that though Scripture should be sufficient for all of life (2 Timothy 3:16-17), many Christians would rather look to other "more reputable sources" for how to order their lives. When I say “more reputable” I mean a quick Google search in which the first few results explain that when the Bible says wives should submit to their husbands (Titus 2:5), what it really means is that wives should never in any circumstance submit to their husbands.

In the few instances in which I have attempted to share some of my more offensive opinions with my Facebook friends, I have been attacked not by those who have no regard for God’s word, but by those who would swear by the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy. Unfortunately Biblical inerrancy doesn’t mean much to those who are Biblically illiterate (Matthew 22:29).

As you can hopefully gather from these first few paragraphs, I am not entering this endeavor without having a fair bit of wit and good humor. The life of a Christian should be marked by joy in abundance (Philippians 4:4), which gives me an advantage over your average feminist because I have a really good knack for laughing at myself. Truth is not necessarily more convincing the more soberly it is declared. My desire here is not to knock you over the head with a Bible or impress you with my vast (not nearly) knowledge. I simply have too many thoughts tumbling around in my head that are not safe for polite society. Writing them down is one way to keep my sanity.

So let’s begin.
