    Thank you for this!!
    I think I was starting to give in the the “peer pressure” too! I kept thinking that a good wife really ought to be gardening and canning and fermenting and kefir-ing and raising chickens and all of that! All my friends do! But I visited a farm recently and enjoyed the woman of the house very much. But I saw in her skills and loves that I simply don’t have. And I realized that God may have just made me a little more suburban than I thought I was, or thought I wanted to be. It’s sort of seen as a weakness these days, isn’t it? To be suburban? We do live in a smaller town, an hour away from the nearest city. But I have finally admitted to myself that I do NOT need to see bits of homesteading as my inevitable future and I do NOT need to spend money on equipment to do extra work I don’t want to do and that my husband isn’t asking me to do anyway!
