If you have been anywhere near social media or the news this past week, you’ve likely heard of Harrison Butker, a kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs. His recent commencement address at Benedictine College caused a stir amongst the woke mob.

Butker told a beautiful story of meeting his wife, and of her faith and absolute amazing willingness to love her family more than anything this world could offer her. This may come as a shocker, but I agree with Butker. His words were so refreshing and needed.

But at one time in my life, I believed the opposite of what Butker expressed. I bought the message which said that to be productive and to be valuable as a woman, I needed to be a wife and mother and I needed to accomplish great things in the corporate world to find my significance and purpose in life. What a big fat lie!

We have all been sold this message. We’re all told that life should continuously be filled with constant stress and undue pressure. We’re told to meet the world’s mark – which only sees fit to erase the nuclear family, taking wives and mothers away from the home, keeping everyone spinning on a hamster wheel, never having the energy to enjoy the true beauty of life.

I was blessed to be surrounded by a family and church that supported the true beauty of a woman’s real role, and their support opened my eyes and heart to a way of life that not only lessened the stress, but one which is changing the future generations of my family.

Put differently, there are many people who feel the exact same way as Butker and would share the same message if given the opportunity to speak at any commencement ceremony.

Yet Hollywood and the liberal media are screaming at every opportunity to discredit Butker in his role as a kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs. The last I checked, his opinion has nothing to do with his ability to kick a ball. However, the attempts to discredit Butker just prove that woke culture will do anything to undermine the natural family.

In reality, Butker is being a real man. Real men fight for what is right. They stand while most hide. They fearlessly take on the battle. And they want women who will support them in those efforts.

Ladies, you don’t just become a doormat or a lost person hidden behind household chores when you take on a woman’s natural role in the home. You become a strong and beautiful woman fulfilling a calling that no one else could ever do as well as you can. The ladies on this week’s podcast agree, calling out feminism for what it is: lies and rotten fruit.

Most women know that the best feelings in the world came when planning their wedding days, when announcing their first precious baby, when decorating the nursery, or when hearing “Mama” for the first time. The hardest days for most women come when walking their children to school for the first time, knowing that a complete stranger is about to spend more time with their children than they do, and that it will be that way until adulthood.

No wonder we are losing! We are letting someone else do the fighting for us, all while we women are convinced that only being a wife and mother signals a lack of worth.

On the heels of Mother’s Day, we are left with a choice. We have an opportunity to continue to buy the feminist lie, or we can pioneer for true change. We can give up and let them win, or we can take back our true purpose and tell the corporate world, woke media, and those with a progressive agenda to take a hike! Let’s follow Harrison Butker’s example and honor wives and homemakers once again!
