- (especially of change or action) relating to or affecting the fundamental nature of something; far-reaching or thorough.
- late 14c., in a medieval philosophical sense, from Late Latin radicalis “of or having roots,” from Latin radix (genitive radicis) “root” (from PIE root *wrād- “branch, root”). Meaning “going to the origin, essential” is from 1650s.

Ok, maybe it’s a little cheeky to start this ‘About Us’ with definitions and etymology, but I really feel like it matters. Modern use of the word ‘radical’ tends to conjure images of war, hostage taking, extremism in the negative.
When choosing the name of my blog and Youtube channel when I was solo in this endeavor it was a no brainer to me given what my aims are.
I have a mission to return and to enable other women to return to the roots of what it means to be women, wives, and mothers and who we are in the eyes of Almighty God. What does this mean? It means rejecting what modern society tells us an empowered woman looks like. As I started explaining this to more women, more women’s ears perked.
For too long women have been mired in feminism and what culture tells us is meaningful as a woman and what we should be striving toward. Our lives are all about “choice”, but only if we make the “progressive” choices like a career, maybe marriage, maybe one or two children who we will abdicate care of to daycares and government schools. If children don’t fit and we are finding ourselves pregnant, murdering them in the womb. Mommy needs wine memes when our days are hard, and constantly striving to remain who we were BEFORE we became mothers. Embracing birth control over our God given gift of fertility and then when we do finally decide in our late 30s that we want a baby, taking a whole host of drugs to trick our bodies into being fertile again or renting the womb of another woman. To remain appealing to our husbands, one need only maintain a youthful glow, a firm backside, a flat stomach, and upright breasts. We need to stay in a perpetual state of drag queen makeup and ready to behave like an actress in an adult movie… no mention of building, growing, mutual submission, striving toward our Eternal Reward together, and glorifying God Our Father by transmitting the faith to the children we make as one flesh.
So there is where we are. We aim for a radical change. We aim to go back to who we are as women, as wives, as mothers. We aim to glorify God in the Domestic Church and live it loudly in the world, not of the world.

Proverbs 31.31 reads “Acclaim her for the work of her hands, and let her deeds praise her at the city gates.”
Being a woman of worth is far more than the superficial sold to us by media influence. Being a woman of worth, a worthy wife, a mother who blesses her children, and a daughter of The Most High requires going back to square one. Aren’t *YOU* worth that? We think you are.
