So can the gentlemen get the luggage and carry the boxes and open the jars?
Yes, they most certainly can.) Also, my men clear and rinse their own dishes after every meal and always, and always put the toilet seat down.
Words like “dress modestly” and “act appropriately” land precariously all over a wide spectrum depending on each person’s perspective and experiences.
Yes (for the love of my teenage, Jesus-seeking sons) do both.
This might all seem like physical training (dishes, luggage, doors), but I believe what our sons are learning is that you, darling girl, deserve to be cared for, honored, respected, and loved. I guess it runs in the family, or maybe it just shows that no matter how noble our efforts, each of us is human and needs a Savior.
