What Makes a Woman a WIFE, a MUM, a HOMEMAKER!?
Stella picked the phone to call her bestie from way back in the university, Eniola. They hadn’t spoken in the past two years. Not that she didn’t want them to remain friends; far from it. The high demands of marriage – playing wife, pregnancy, child birth, being a mom, her job and everything else in-between, has just made her neglect their friendship,
Eniola had really tried to stay in touch but she’d often missed her calls, making the mental note to call back, which she never got to… and now two days later have become two years later.
They still liked each other’s posts on Social media but she really missed having those ‘gist of life’ and belly deep laughter moments they used to share.
“Damn it” she cursed under her breath, “no one warned me that marriage would be this draining. Can’t Damilola see that I’m being overwhelmed by the numerous roles demanded of me daily??” she asked rhetorically as she wiped the tears that had formed at the corners of her tired eyes.
She couldn’t resist the temptation anymore as she quickly dialed Eniola’s number, before she changed her mind for the umpteenth time.
“Babe, I think I’m going crazy…” Her words rushed out like ocean torrents the moment Eniola picked her call on the fourth ring.
“Crazy ke? What’s wrong?” Eniola quizzed.
“I’m so tempted to run away from my own home. As much as I love my husband and our son very much, I am so overwhelmed by all the work I have to do. Damilola doesn’t help me out with the chores…”
“Babe, calm down. You’re saying so many things at the same time.”
“I’m serious Eniola. Do you know I had to resign my job last month? I couldn’t cope with juggling my job and family any more. Dapo was falling ill every other week, taking him to the hospital or school everyday, cooking fresh meal for Damilola everyday, meeting office deadlines, which I stopped meeting…, plenty things babe. Right now I just feel like disappearing and appearing in another planet.”
“Well, at least you haven’t lost your sense of humour.” Eniola chuckled at the other end of the line.
Just like Stella in the story above, a lot of women are struggling to balance their roles as a WIFE, a MUM, a HOMEMAKER and still be all that God has created them to BECOME.
Helping women create this much needed balance without burning out, is one of the issues the TWTW Bible Study Collection Volume 2 addresses.
If you’ve read our TWTW Bible Study Volume 1, you’d know that our bible studies at the Well are indepth and replete with practical tips you can apply as a Christian woman, whether you’re Single or married.
The TWTW Bible Study Collection Volume 2 is the collective effort of hearts filled with love offering you three (3) spirit-filled studies we have delved into in our ministry’s online group in the past one year.
With this collection of study, we went full circle into the woman’s life – from her marriage, to her home and to her calling. It contains three Bible studies:
1. Becoming Homemakers
2. All Things Courtship And Marriage
3. Women Arising
As usual, it is our utmost desire and vision to lead women of the nations of the world to JESUS. So also, for this volume of Bible study, our heart’s desire is that, in whichever nation of this world this book finds you at, may the One you see be JESUS.
In the coming weeks, starting from this Friday, 1st June, 2018, we’ll be sharing some snippets of this book with you here on the blog.
Please share and invite all your sister/girlfriends to come join us on this cruise!
