Today is Tuesday, you know what that means?
We're gonna have a special guest!
So, get out the broom, sweep the place clean,
And dust off the mat so the WELCOME can be seen!
Roll out the carpet! Strike up the band!
And give out with a hip-hooray . . . HIP-HOORAY!!!
Wiggle your ears, like good Mousekateers,
We're gonna have a special guest today!
'Cause Tuesday is Guest Star Day!

I sing this every Tuesday, because I remember it from the Mickey Mouse Club. Glenna sings it with me! She even does the "wah-wah" trombone part. :-)

Today, I want you to check out a guest star. Mark Driscoll is a pastor at Mars Hill (not the one associated with Rob Bell) and he did an EXCELLENT sermon on women and femininity. The audio sermon is 90 minutes long, so turn up your speakers or put your lap top in your room and clean out your closet, drawers, under your bed, etc while you listen. This is highly recommended for women ages 16 and up (or, Moms can listen first and decide for themselves).

This sermon was recommended by Jess at Making Home, one of the blogs I love. Thanks, Jess!

That was a really great sermon! Thanks for sharing.
It's so freeing to be reminded of the role God has given to us as women! I feel like everybody and everything at school is screaming the opposite.

Some of the looks I get when people find out I want a family more than a career! It's as if I'm the strange one.

I'm so glad you listened to it. Was there an item you cleaned during the sermon? ;-)

I agree with you, and he talked about how devalued the home has become over the market place. I have faced this myself. I had a woman actually say to me when I was pregnant with Glenna, "You haven't worked for seven years? Sheesh." (Oh yeah? Well, now I haven't "worked" for almost TWENTY YEARS! Take THAT!)

Oh, and this is not the Jess from Making Home. This is Ty's Jess. Just so you all know. I mean, why would Jess from Making Home thank me for sharing her own link?

PS I like calling her Ty's Jess.

Actually, I typed up notes for a class portfolio while I listened.

(I put away all my laundry just before I found the sermon link. :)

Wow, Mrs. W, didn't realize you were such a dedicated blogger. I'll have to start reading your page!

Loved the sermon! I often listen to Mark. He has such fresh and "not afraid to offend" truths to share. This one was a wonderful reminder of God's view of womanhood. Thank you for sharing.
And, Jess, I'm so glad you took time out of your busy schedule to listen. I know this reinforced what your heart already desires.
