What does it mean to be a kept wife?

Recently, I’ve had some controversy over my name so I would like to make myself clear.

What does it mean to be a kept wife? I refuse to be a house wife by trade. I’m not a stay at home mom. The value of a spouse staying at home is often degraded by society. I’m an everything at our house. I am a personal shopper. I buy pretty much anything that enters our home. I’m  a financial advisor; as I pay bills, make deposits, and constantly look for new ways to budget and save. I’m a box top collecting, volunteer as I rush to help with school projects. I’m not a cook, but I make sure everybody is fed. I’m an entertainer and an activities coordinator. I control five schedules most every second of the day. I’m a chauffeur AND yes, I get my nails done every two weeks. Sometimes I even call Molly Maid when I get overwhelmed. Lastly, I stay at home.

  1. Wow! Very inettesring to see how Christians were looked at from someone who was part of the early church. Interesting that Christians back then lived in poverty, I wonder what a prosperity gospel proponent would say about that. Thanks for sharing this piece.
