The 1950’s Wife vs.The Proverbs 31 Wife

  Pictured Above – my grandmother with 2 of her 3 boys and my mother   On the Rachael Ray Show I was dubbed a “1950’s Wife“. But my grandmother, a mother of 4, is the REAL 1950’s wife.  She is ALSO a Proverbs 31 woman.    Were all 1950’s wives Proverbs 31 wives?    No…the two terms are not equal.  I know that nostalgia makes us believe the old days were better but what distinguishes a 50’s wife from a Proverbs 31 one?  Her fear of God.      Grandma’s life was full and busy as she lovingly cared for her family.

   Photo Credit: TimeWarpWife.com Welcome to Week 1 in Proverbs 31!!! I’m so delighted that you are here.

DSC05047

Tuesday Morning Kylie Bisutti, former Victoria Secret Model, was in New York City on Fox and Friends doing this.  And Tuesday evening she was in Ohio at a Starbucks, doing this!!! Kylie graciously gave of her time, to share her story with me and my 2 friends – Diana and Clare (Peak 313). We chatted for nearly 2 hours and I wish I could share every last detail with you – but it was not an interview (although my rapid fire questions may have felt like it was to her lol!!! This girl is fascinating!). It was truly just a casual meeting […]

What Sundays Were Like In the 1950’s

On the Rachael Ray Show I was dubbed a “1950’s Wife“. But my grandmother (pictured above), a mother of 4 (one baby is not born yet in this photo), is the REAL 1950’s wife. She is ALSO a Proverbs 31 woman. Let’s take a look at what her Sundays looked like compared to ours. Life was different in the 50’s. In Ohio, there was a Blue Law that required stores and most places of work and business to be closed. This made it possible for most people to be in church. My father recalls that almost everyone went to church. […]

Comparing Myself to a REAL1950’s Wife

On the Rachael Ray Show I was dubbed a “1950’s Wife“. But my grandmother, a mother of 4, is the REAL 1950’s wife. She is ALSO a Proverbs 31 woman. On Mother’s Day we sat in the Cheesecake Factory and I had my notebook and pen in hand and I wrote and wrote and wrote about what life was like in the 1950’s. Here’s some of what I learned. My grandma had a weekly schedule that my mother rattled off as quickly as my grandmother did!! So this must be where I get my scheduling tendencies – it’s in my […]
