How Julia Child and Tim Keller Schooled Me In Femininity


Dec 16 2013
True womanhood runs deeper than our girly-girl stereotypes. (Thank God!)

While Tim Keller shows me that my femininity is a godly asset in my relationship with my husband, Julia demonstrates that feminine strengths come in all shapes and flavors. Together, they remind us life is most pleasurable when we extend those strengths to their fullest, particularly in marriage. Feminine expression is not something we do merely in anticipation of that day we don a white dress. Femininity is a gift through which we exemplify some of our Creator's greatest strengths and have fun while we're at it.

Emily Capo Sauerman is a writer, editor, and photographer. She blogs at Learning to Whistle about creativity and the inspiring things that spark it. She and her husband Josh live in Chicago where the two of them cook out of Julia Child's cookbooks while listening to Tim Keller sermons on podcast.
