God intended for women to watch over the ways of their homes. How exactly does a woman do that, however? Here are four practical ways:

Be a gatekeeper of the influences that come into your home.

Moms can be faithful to watch over their homes well by keeping watch over what influences are allowed to enter its doors. What media is your child taking in, what are your kids accessing on the internet, as well as yourself, and what is going on in the areas of phones and entertainment? What are your kids being allowed to see and hear?

Know who your kids’ friends are and what is going on at school

Moms who want to watch over their homes well and thereby tend to the hearts of their growing children need to be well acquainted with who their kids’ friends are and what is going on at school. Who are your kids’ friends’ parents? What are they like? Children shouldn’t be so sheltered as to be hidden away from the outside world and only in contact with those who act, dress, think, and believe exactly as they do. They should, however, be taught how to interact with people who are different from them, all the while showing them the love and light of Jesus along the way.

Be involved.

Be involved in your kids’ lives. Be the person they know they can come to with any issue whatsoever, as a safe place practicing good, open communication. Know what is going on in their hearts and ask God to give you discernment as to what truth they need to be taught and when.

Equip and encourage them to walk by the Spirit, living a life of faith on their own.

Watching over the ways of your home and being a true gatekeeper and guardian of that realm does not mean you need to micromanage, overly shelter, control, helicopter parent, or fully guard your children from the real world. What it does mean is that, at appropriate ages and in appropriate ways, you do explain to your children what the “real world” is like and what goes on there. You do so in a way that, even in the midst of having their eyes opened to the stark reality, they are equipped to love people well, share the gospel, and have a Biblical worldview in the midst of it all. Our children turning into those kinds of adults is our goal as we seek to watch over the ways of our homes in a good and faithful way.

Watching well over the goings on of your home is a big job, and sometimes it feels overwhelming. But it’s world-changing, it’s good, and it’s worth it.

New Study Suggests People Who Seek to Be Close With God View the Bible More Literally

Sociologists have long suggested that Christian women are more religious than men, but Blake Victor Kent wondered if this discrepancy has something to do with gender differences and intimacy.A former pastor who grew up in the evangelical church, Kent took interest in how gender roles were articulated abstractly but then lived out differently. He saw a disconnect. For example, he noticed that some evangelicals draw firm theological boundaries around formal leadership but then allow women to lead informally all the time.During graduate school, some prominent research on gender caught Kent’s eye and made him wonder if sociologists were missing part of the story. A study by John Hoffmann and John Bartkowski found that women are more likely than men to view the Bible as the literal Word of God. The authors viewed this result as a comment on female social standing in the church, a…See More
