Happy Release Day!

Today is the day! I've already birthed one baby this month, now it is time to birth another. The Accidental Feminist: Restoring Our Delight in God's Good Design releases today (actually it released yesterday, but who is counting?). After a year and a half of writing, planning, editing, more writing, and more editing, it is finally time to release the book to the masses.

Unlike Seth's arrival, I've known this due date for a while now, and it is hard to believe it's actually here. My prayer throughout the entire process was that God would use it to encourage his people and make himself known in greater measure. The prayer is still the same and I pray it for you, dear reader.

So happy release day, The Accidental Feminist. I'm glad you are here, too!

And at some point I'll write about Seth's eventful birth on May 19, but until then here is a picture of my two babies born this month.

First off, congratulations on a book release. As a writer, I know that having your words published has to feel like the most amazing accomplishment!

But, I do have one question. I was sent a link to your book because I consider myself a feminist, and a friend sent me an article mentioning this book because she thought of me. Granted, I have not read all of your opinions on this topic, but just curiosity's sake, do you believe that there is any historical context to Paul and Peter's words?

Again, Congratulations for your Release Day :D

but with due respect
it is an AWFUL time to be a Christian woman
because it is an awful time to be a MAN let alone a Christian man

just like, if women had no voice or were abused etc, it is an awful time to be a man
in the same way
when men are mocked for wanting to provide and protect their wives
when men are not allowed to seek a wife that desires to be a wife and mom ( most churches tell men to servant lead , man up and marry a woman who desires to be a man- the provider,protector and leader)

your sons will be mocked,laughed at or be made to be a woman ( homemaker etc) depending on whether they leave church and the type of church they attend...

when it is bad or un PC to be a man
it is a bad time to be a woman....

hope you are getting to spend time with your kids and are not pressured by writing yet!
