What about Eve???

Genesis 2:18 And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” 

I believe women struggle with the role that God designed them for much more than men do.  It dates back to the garden when the serpent decided to deceive Eve.  He obviously saw her as an easier target.  I believe Satan still see women as easier targets in some areas.  I find that the biggest debates among married women or whether or not to have children, whether or not to work outside of home or inside of home, whether or not to send kids to school or homeschool them.  These issues stir up the strongest emotions among wives and mothers.  I wonder why???  What side does media lean more towards in these debates???  

What does all this have to do with Eve way back when, in the garden???  Well when God created Adam, He gave him a job; to tend and keep the garden.  When God created Eve He did not give her a "job". He gave her a "role".  That role was a helper to Adam.  This was God's original template for marriage.  As a fulltime homemaker,  the media is like an apple that dangles in front of my face that says "know more, be more, do more.  Just like that apple Satan dangles long ago.  Yes,  Eve intrigues me;  as she should.  She is my original template.
