Biblical Womanhood

Just in! Rachel Held Evans is going to do a year of "biblical womanhood"-living out the commands of the bible for women. I am planning on following this closely. Totally blows my mind. From her blog announcement:
This means, among other things, rising before dawn each day (Proverbs 31:15), submitting to my husband (Colossians 3:18), growing out my hair (1 Corinthians 11:15), making my own clothes, (Proverbs 31:22), learning how to cook (Titus 2:3-5), covering my head when in prayer (1 Corinthians 11:5), calling Dan “master” (1 Peter 3:5-6), caring for the poor (Proverbs 31:25), nurturing a gentle and quiet spirit (1 Peter 3:4), and camping out in the backyard for the duration of my monthly period (Leviticus 15:19-33).

Read her blog; that sounds interesting... and terrifying. I certainly would not go anywhere near that yearly experiment. Did you read her first book?

No, I really would like to though-maybe a group read?

Gee, the bougainvillea seems to be doing really well this year. What are you doing differently, Rachel?
