DAILY DEVOTIONAL: Women’s Work And Men’s Work Can Be Everybody’s Work

Alaska Gov. Sara Palin and her husband Todd present their fifth child, a boy named Trig Paxson Van Palin, who was born April 18th, 2008. On Friday, August 29, 2008, GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain chose Palin as his vice presidential running mate. (Photo by Jim Lavarkas/Anchorage Daily News/MCT via Getty Images)

He created them male and female and blessed them. And he named them “Mankind” when they were created.
Genesis 5:2

At home I’m constantly around commercial fishermen who curse like sailors, oil field workers with a hardcore blue-collar work ethic, tattooed soldiers with no patience for political correctness, long-haul truckers, motorheads, mechanics, hunters, and hikers. (And those are just blood relatives!) In all those Carhartts and steel-toed boots, out of all that testosterone, I don’t know anyone who talks about women in the degrading way the misogynists do on TV.

I hunt, fish, plow snow, chop wood, pretend to be a jock – just like the guys. My daughters have been on the football, hockey, and wrestling teams – just like the guys. We even dress like the men at times, in warm camo hoodies and flat bills to shade the midnight sun. Our environment is rugged and real, and our Alaskan elements are a great equalizer.

On the other hand, I’m married to the most manly guy I’ve ever met. A famous TV producer refers to Todd as “Captain America.” I’ve watched in appreciation as Todd stops to braid Piper’s hair before a ballgame. He cooks the best salmon chowder, making sure Willow has her favorite on the stovetop when she stops by. That Iron Dog champ can change a diaper as fast as he can change the oil in one of the trucks he rebuilt by hand.

Though God made men and women so different, our talents can over-lap -especially when the environment we live in demands it.

Sweet Freedom in Action
Today, make sure your daughter knows her worth is far beyond her looks. Teach her to hit a ball or score a basket. And show your son that real men are tough enough to take on “women’s work.” For instance, help him make quiche. Add some venison. Real men eat it.


  1. Sarah, all those kinfolks could have been mine, and like yours, they are far more respectful of women than the misogynists we see running wild in media today.

    I tend to believe a wide majority of Americans would say the same. Fortunately.

    • True, but one can become desensitized and drift from moral, cultural moorings. I’m glad we have the Bible, the Solid Rock (and friends, like, Sarah and Todd Palin) to guide us home.

      • I agree.

        The Word tells us God’s Law is written in our hearts, and I see it every day in the goodness of the people around me, whose values and conduct reflect the
        Judeo-Christian roots of our blessed nation.

        But I also see too many who are adrift.

        And color me biased, but I don’t think we can maintain who we are without people like Todd and Sarah to set an example and carry the torch.

        I think one of the most powerful and amazing things in this world is the Bible’s survival and growth through the ages. To call it improbable is the understatement of the era. It IS the road map to life.

  2. Sarah, over the years we have watched as you, your family (your sweet mom) walked in God’s path. We don’t have to ask…we see your walk, your faith in a God that is always faithful. My life versus are, Jeremiah 29:11 and Hebrews 11:1

    God please Bless us all
