I was over at Ladies Against Feminism the other day. That is a really great site. I truly enjoy it. Some nice gal over there wrote a "Friendly critique" of Flylady. I must admit that I agreed with most of it. I feel that Flylady knows some about God, but not enough to know that Jesus Christ is necessary in our lives, not just "God". I truly hope that someone can one day witness to her and tell her the Good News of Salvation through Jesus Christ.
I am also totally against the "Finally loving yourself" mantra, per se. I do realize the need for a godly woman to take good care of herself so that she is able to be a help meet and a mother that's not totally exhausted and worn out.
I am also against any mention of fung shui.
HOWEVER, I like just about everything else about Flylady!!! I was not in total CHAOS, but I felt like an absolute failure at housekeeping. What's more, I disliked it. I hated making the bed. I really hated washing the dishes. I'll be totally honest, I am awed when I see women who enjoy the work. Born-organized people annoy me, more than inspire me. I am concerned about gals who live on a minute to minute schedule. Sour grapes? Maybe.
But Flylady, that I can do. Simple, easy instructions. Attainable goals. Happy Husband. Calm children. OK, we're still working on that part.
What dear Flylady might not know is this. Homemaking is Godly. Homemaking with a smile and a good attitude is godliness and the road to great help meet-ness.
I feel that God sent Flylady just for me. Once a become a great homemaker, I might just start sewing! Who knows?
I would give "Sink Reflections" to a bride, along with "Created to be his help meet"
So, Flylady might not be for you, but thats OK, becuase God sent her for me!
