I am in Jacksonville, Fla. I find your writings very uplifting and encouraging. I wish I had had access to them while I was raising my sons as I often felt that I was the only one who wasn't working outside the home. My youngest is leaving for college in two months so now I keep hearing, "What are you going to DO?" Well, I'm not exactly sure, but I'm glad I have blogs like yours to gain insight from.

I live in Berkeley Springs, WV. I've been an avid reader since Spring, 2005, when my sister showed me LAF as a joke.

I had been convicted about women's roles for some time and I read the articles with interest. I found it fascinating that the site had articles that were quite serious and weren't just about children and housekeeping (no offense intended, but I was college-bound and had no interest in those things).
My theology was/is quite weak so I decided to give your ideas a trial run; I wore dresses for two weeks. After that I hated pants and haven't worn them since.
College was a huge adjustment. I'd been homeschooled since first grade and had the added burden of not knowing how to deal with the stereotyping and labeling that my skirts brought me. A good many of my teachers did not like it when I expressed my beliefs. One thing I'll always remember is the day in my ed class when we discussed sex ed, I demanded of my classmates, "Where is your sense of childhood innocence?" and all I got were blank stares.

I didn't become dresses-only until I was 19 and it has been on of the hardest transitions of my life. It was an easy decision for me to make but I didn't realize that such a simple change in wardrobe would bring out such adverse reactions in people.

I know this probably isn't the type of response you were expecting, but a thank you note has been long overdue. LAF and this blog have been lifesavers for me. It's been horribly lonely to be the only dresses-only person I know at my school, but your sound advice has helping me get through it and now I'm the happiest I've ever been.

Thank you for everything,

Charity

LadyLydiaSpeaks said...

Charity, I don't know why people act so snobbish about skirts and dresses. If we aren't supposed to buy them and wear them, why are they in the shop windows and in all the stores? Why don't the college profs and students go to those stores in the malls that have skirts and give them the same sarcastic treatment?

Hedi said...

HI, I also recently found your blog and enjoy reading it since. I live in Easten Europe, Estonia, in capital Tallinn. My views are changed a lot after been acquainted with biblical wiew of marriage and I must agree, some people may find it hard to agree. Especially in a place where homeschooling isn´t popular, these wiews doesn´t seem to be so widely known, even within christian circles. Although our country rather recently got the independence back and dived into the western world, our nation views, our society, as far as it seems to me, are very modernised, and feminized so quickly. I find it really sad, that people don´t appreciate old ways, that were the way the were for a reason, anymore.

Many blessing to blog writers and also readers!
Strength for the road!

I'm a reader who checks for new posts nearly everyday, here in Chandler, AZ. I just love your blog, all the pictures and the wonderful topics of discussion. I especially appreciate the validation and encouragement you ladies give to being a homemaker. I'm usually met with condescending attitudes or disdain when people find out that I "only" work part-time, or previously (before the blessing of my part-time job), that I "don't do anything". It's so good to hear other, wiser, women speaking of being a homemaker as the beautiful, joyful thing I know it to be.

I am Mrs. Fathima, Indian Muslim, Living in UAE, I wanted to know about american culture so I browsed the net. LAF and then your Blog have been a refreshing contrast and bring out the pride, beauty and dignity of the US culture which we have read in our School Books. I am espescially fascinated by the Pioneers who came and created a new vibrant civilisation from the amalgamation of different cultures and Races. Of course the work culture and respect for all kinds of professions in America is what attracts the most talented and accomplshed people from all over the world including India to even leave their dear and near to come to America and settle here.
Thank you for giving a different perspective of American Civilization which is more attractive to us.

With Kind Regards and respects,

Hi Lady Lydia

I really enjoy reading your blog. You have some really nice postings especially about the wife staying at home and female modesty. I myself am actually a convert to Islam from Christianity. But we share many similar beliefs such as that in Islam modesty is very important to us for both females and males (see Quran Chapter 24 verse 30-31) also we believe that the best place for a woman is in her home taking care of the house and her family. By the way I'm here in Chelmsford in the UK. Just thought I'd let you know :)

p.s I do not mean to cause any offence in this comment only to show how our religions are similar. God willing there will be a time where we can all live in peace

Dear Lady Lydia,

Yes, I was also surprised to hear that your blog has been banned, maybe its a case of mistaken identity or red tape or something. It is a very strange thing to happen, because India as a whole is very tolerant towards all religions. Hopefully, this problem will resolve itself soon.

Hello Lady Lydia! I'm Sophia and I've already written to let you know how much I enjoy your writings, and what impact they have on myself, as well as the impact you may have on those who may come here to learn why women might want to stay home. I currently live in Baltimore Maryland. One thing that might be nicely served by the ClustrMap mentioned is that we might be able to see if we have a neighbor who is a kindred spirit. As mentioned, we can often feel alone, and it would be a wonderful thing to find someone close by to share our lives with.

All my best to you, wonderful lady!

Waving from Portugal too: from Sintra, near Lisbon.
I began to read you at LAF some 2 years ago, maybe.
About woman at home: in Portugal nobody works at home anymore (almost nobody). I keep saying not working outside is so important and dignifying for a woman but everybody looks at me as I was an alian. I'm quite used to that because, as a strong catholic, my ideas are always opposing the world mentality, so most people find me rather strange.
I work outside my home because I have such a good income but I'm always saying that it's only because of that. If you could see the looks of other people when I say that!- they wanted me to say I work outside because I think is more interesting that staying at home. And because I say I don't agree with them, I'm strange.
My mother used to work since she got married and only stoped some years ago to take care of my ageing grandmother - and she was quite ill. Now, that my grandnother went to live with God, my mother didn't go back to the work force and helps me to raise my children.
Sorry for the long post.

I found you thru the LAF website which my sister showed me a few years ago. I am a homeschooling mama of 4 children and we live in Panama City, FL. My husband has always wanted me to be home and I'm so glad he feels that way and supports me so much. I check in weekly and always love to read what you have to say and I love the pictures too!
