FW 5.8 Are you a Leah? Or a Rachel?

Hello, Beautiful Homemakers! The first half of this video I am reading from the original 1922 Fascinating Womanhood pamphlet number 5, the section entitled "Designs that are Alluring" which discusses what kind of clothing catches a man's eye.  During the last half of the video I share a story about two sisters, whom I am calling Leah and Rachel, along with 11 tips for a tomboy to begin to step out of her comfort zone and dip her toe into femininity.  "Makeover" chick-flick movies/books/videos are popular because it really does work.

(I also put a joke in the video's pictures - I hope it makes you laugh!) ***** These are the other videos I discuss: FW5.2 Why He Won't Marry You and FW4.8 Why He Didn't Call You Back The clothing video I talk about in the beginning of the video is FW5.6 What to Look For When Clothes Shopping.   Astute viewers of the FW5.7 video may be wondering, "If the wife in The Letters was an FW, then why did h

Almost 60 years together!

 I received a questionnaire back from Margaret.  Lewis died just three months shy of their 60th wedding anniversary.  I wanted to use her wedding picture, but she informed me that they didn't have one!  A good reminder that it isn't about the day - it's about the years that follow the commitment made on your wedding day. I'm so glad that Margaret completed the questionnaire and that we get this peek into their life. May God bless you as you write your own love story, day by day. Janine
