I am not a typical woman.  I never wanted to get married and have kids. I didn’t like dresses or girly things.  When all the other girls had long hair, I had short.  When they had short, I had long.  I think maybe it was because of genetics.  I was born this way.  I probably inherited my genes from my mom.  She had ambition to become a teacher, a nurse, a farmer, a musician, and in later years a missionary.  When all the other moms were bottle feeding their babies, she breast-fed. She didn’t buy in to scare tactics like ---your children will become juvenile delinquents if they read comic books.  My older brother read all the comic books he wanted to.  When all the Baptist kids were told not to dance my mom signed me up for dancing lessons.  When the Baptist kids weren’t going to movies we attended movies. I was never encouraged to prepare for home making and was expected to go to college and prepare for a career.  Here is a blog I enjoyed from Desiring God.  This author believes that no woman is a typical woman.  Click here to read.
