My goals.

Every wise woman buildeth her home: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.
                                                                Proverbs 14:1
Lately I have been thinking about the differences between me and the other young women around me. These young women aren't bad in any way and I am not either but it is just interesting to see how different we all are.

These young women’s goals are going to college to get a good degree so that they can have a good job.

 My goal, to take college classes to further my education so that I can teach my children correct principles.

They have the goal to be the town’s basketball star.

My goal, to be able to cook sew, quilt, mend, and take care of a family.

They want to be the most popular girl in school

I want to ‘be an example of the believers’.

They want to work after they are married until they have children.

I want to stay at home to prepare for my children.

They read Twilight in their free time.

I read books such as ‘equine medications’ and ‘lap quilting’

For fun they hang out with friends

I hang out with some friends too for sure but, I also work outside, work with my horses, sew and play the piano a lot more.

Yeah, I guess you could call me old fashioned!
