Spiritual Lessons/ It's Not About Staying At Home

Spiritual Lessons

If you think God's plan for young women is all about being modest, keeping pure, staying home, preparing for marriage, and waiting for Prince Charming... you will not like this message. But...

  • If you're tired of a small and fruitless vision for single womanhood, and are wondering if God might want more from you...
  • If you're frustrated with a lack of fruitless, real-world involvement, and opportunities to grow, be stretched, and exercise your gifts...
  • If you're sick of legalism, idolatry, formulas, movements, bandwagons, Christian-subculture trends and man-made rules, and just want to get back to God's timeless principles for young womanhood...
  • Or if you're just trying to figure out what you believe and why...
 ...take a step back with Anna Sofia and Elizabeth, away from the narrow applications and movement trends, and reexamine the baseline biblical principles that should form the foundation of our vision for single womanhood. Discover a robust vision of spreading the gospel, serving the saints, reaching out to the poor and needy, being full of good works, exercising your gifts, strengthening your arms, working with your hands, making the most of your single years, seeking first the Kingdom of God, and more!

In this message, the Botkin sisters reexamine hot button issues like a father's authority, marriage, singleness, college, jobs, ministry, giftedness, Phariseeism, pursuing fruitfulness rather than just safety, serving our families vs. serving other people, why feminism is not the big enemy, and of course, "staying at home". Prepare to be more excited about being a single Christian young woman than you've ever been before!

  1. I listened to the MP3 download "It's not about staying home". I wasn't quite sure what to expect, as I hadn't heard anything by the Botkins sisters before, but it was pretty good actually. Encouraging. I liked how they laid out some of their Biblical Principles. This was a good recommendation Toni.

  2. Good, I'm glad you liked it. I did too. I thought it was really refreshing and original, but sound and biblical. It's always nice to be encouraged by someone "outside" of your normal sphere too.
