Intro Into The Ideal Woman

I created this blog as a way to introduce the Fascinating Womanhood teaching and principles to millennial's and women of all ages around the world. I feel these principles are needed more now then ever before. People are getting divorced at an alarming rate, the foundation of the family is being held by a dangling string, and couples are not getting married because they feel that don't need to be married anymore. The major reason I have created this blog is because I want to help women realize that we are strong creatures who are the gatekeepers of civilizations. "We are the mothers to leaders, inventors, movers and shakers who help to make the world a better place. If it was not for women, civilization would not exist.

Over the last few decades, women have been told in one way or another that we should be ashamed to stay at home and be mothers. Stay at home moms have been that they are lazy and dumb for wanting to stay at home. Women have been put down and humiliated for …

Why You Shouldn't Pay To Go Out With A Guy

In my younger days(AKA, 3 years ago) I thought it was cool to pay for a date or give a few dollars to a guy when he needs it. Now, I am no longer like that anymore. I noticed that when I did that for a guy they 1.)  Used me 2.) Did not appreciate me 3.) Did I say used me???
The reason guys feel they can have ladies pay for dates(that includes splitting the bill) , make last minute dates, call all hours of the night, or not even take us out at all is  because we allow them as ladies to treat us in that fashion. 
Let me tell you a story. A few years ago, I was going through a rough patch in my life. I had left the church I was involved with and was not allowed to talk to anyone from the church. I had decided to leave my job as a child care worker after realizing I was not cut out for the job . and I had decided to go back to school. While I was in school, I decided to get a part time job. While I was doing some test for my new job, I met Robert*. Me and Robert talked for a few minutes …

The case of the missing Home economics class

Around 50 years ago,Home Economics was a required course in school. Young ladies took home economics, young men took woodshop. They had clubs for girls such as Future Homemakers of America. For homemakers they had homemakers clubs where they went to women houses once a month to try a new project or swap tips and recipes. Now, Homemakers clubs are close to extinction, FHOA are now calledFamily, Career and Community Leaders of America, and even though they still have cooking classes and fashion design courses in school, the whole content of the home economics course has changed. It has changed so much that its not even called home economics anymore its called Family and consumer science.

Is sewing still a must have skill?

For the past few years,I have always had on my to-do list to learn how to sew. Shortly after my baby was born,my mom showed me hot to sew by hand ,but my interest in learning how to use a sewing machine.So far,I haven been able to find the time to learn how to sew. I had a conversation with Dixie A. (president of Fascinating Womanhood International and daughter of  Helen Andalin) and she said that sewing is a great skill to know,But with stores such as Forever 21,H&M,and Aliexpress, its cheaper to buy clothes rather then buy fabric and sit down to sew.

 Years ago,when you were on a tight budget,you made your own clothes.Now they don't even teach sewing in school anymore(unless you are going to be going to fashion design school).Most people my age dont even know how to sew a button or darn a sock. Now with sites such as Youtube and crafty, you can learn how to sew online.But is it worth it to sew your own clothes. Also,sewing is great to know so that you can make your own home …

Being a lady is back in style

I was look through videos on You tube when I found this show about being a lady in the 21st century.Growing up,I was a  young lady who was into etiquette books and finishing schools(so upset there is no more traditional finishing schools around) and I was even a debutante my senior year of high school. But as I got older, I lost a lot of those feminine traits that I was as a little girl. Right now with me following the Fascinating Womanhood principles, I am trying to gain the ladylike mindset back.I was looking to see if there was any etiquette schools/charm schools in my area and found a few articles about women trying out etiquette classes and how it is very fundamental for the business world(think of all those business dinners and trips).

 The video also talks about deportment(AKA, how to walk graceful), riding a horse sidesaddle(every time I think of riding sidesaddle,I think of the movie Princess Diaries 2),and other traits of a lady and how they are being revamped for the 21st …

Lets Talk About The Bachelor

I am sorry for neglecting the blog for a while. I was in the process of writing about being feminine in the workplace post and finishing up the Fascinating Womanhood course, when my son had to be rushed to the hospital for an emergency surgery. I thank God for watching over me and my family during this turbulent time. My son is doing 1000% better and I want to thank Children’s hospital for taking care of my son. They were truly my angels.
Now back to business, let’s talk about The Bachelor.
I am going to be honest, I do not look at the show. It never interested me as a form of entertainment (this also includes the show The Bachelorette and other dating shows like this). The only time I remember looking at the Bachelor is during one of the wedding episodes (not many of these couples have married so that should tell you something). I can’t understand how someone can go on national television with 25 other women, go on a handful of dates with this guy, be intimate with him (again on TV)…

A Feminine Moment How to Retain Femininity in the Workplace 2018

Here is an interesting video from the Mrs. Dixie Andelin Forsyth and Mrs. Jennifer Cross, President and Executive Assistant of Fascinating Womanhood respectively, about femininity in the workplace. I am going to be doing another post about this same subject shortly,but I want to introduce you the videos of The Fascinating Womanhood channel on Youtube.

What Fascinating Womanhood is not?

On the Fascinating Womanhood Facebook group, a question was asked about what was Fascinating Womanhood and what was not. It was an interesting question to me because I had been planning to do a blog about that question. From the many success stories we can say that Fascinating womanhood has benefited many marriages. But since the book was written over 50 years ago, many people have taken a lot of the principles and some of the success stories out of context. People who have read excerpts or never even read the book have made their own conclusions about what Fascinating Womanhood is and make people think negative thoughts about these timeless principles. So below I have a list of what in my opinion Fascinating Womanhood is NOT.

1.) Fascinating Womanhood does NOT encourage Domestic Violence- If you have ever read the classic edition of Fascinating Womanhood, a couple of the success stories included a story where the husband had put his hand on his wife and after she used the Fascinating…

Being a Domestic Goddess while holding a full time job

When people hear the word Domestic Goddess, they are probably thinking a SAHM. Well most homemakers and such are SAHM/SAHW, in my opinion you can be a Domestic Goddess and work a fill time job. Even thought we might recommend to stay home with the kiddos when they are little bity ones, we know that sometimes that is not the case. Now honestly, it will be a little harder for you to work and make you home comfortable, but you can do it. Here is some advice on working while keeping home.

1.) Get your children involved-If you have children, this is a great time to involve them in cleaning up. Children as young as 2 years old can help around the house picking up toys, wiping tables, loading laundry. It helps them to grow character and encourages responsibility in them.

2.) Just take 15 minutes- 15 minutes is all you need each day to get you house clean. Each day take 15 minutes and go though each room and pick up what does not belong(I also recommend having a basket in each child's roo…

The Engagment Chicken

It started with a recipe and a trip to Italy. In 1982, Kim Bonnell , a fashion editor at Glamour Magazine, gave a basic Lemon and Herb Roast chicken recipe she developed on a recent trip to Italy to a coworker to make for a long time boyfriend. A short time later, the young co-worker was engaged.  Soon the recipe was passed around to other ladies in the office, and many other engagements occurred. The recipe were published in Glamour Magazine  since 2003 and over 75 engagements have occurred. Maybe its luck or maybe it the magic of the chicken, but here is the recipe for Engagement Chicken. 
Engagement Chicken(recipe from Glamour Magazine) Serves 2 to 4 Ingredients: 1 whole chicken (approximately 4 pounds)1/2 cup fresh lemon juice, plus 3 whole lemons—including 1 sliced for garnish1 tablespoon kosher or coarse sea salt1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepperFresh herbs for garnish (4 rosemary sprigs, 4 sage sprigs, 8 thyme sprigs, and 1 bunch fl at-leaf parsley) Position an oven rack in th…
