Hello, I am Terri Trundy, That Domestic Chick

169 Million.

That’s the number of women in the United States alone.  Globally, there are 3.76 billion women. 

It’s amazing to me that, with the number of women in the world, there are still stereotypes for what a woman “should” be. Add to that the often unreasonable standards that women place upon their lives for what they “should” be.  Then compare your life to your friends’ lives, as pictured on social media, and watch examples of what you don’t want to be as well as examples of women who are excelling in ways that could only be dreamed about.  Then, stream and binge television that is still widely populated by skinny white women.  Fashion and fitness magazines as well as countless videos on YouTube will show what expectations are for women for beauty, clothes, eating and exercise.  Fact: there are 31 million YouTube channels as of 2020 and statistically speaking, women are primarily watching beauty videos.

Stop!  Let me off!  Is it any wonder that women struggle? 

Let me share with you an amazing truth:  You have been wonderfully made and planned before the universe began.  God has made you with a specific set of skills and talents and you are where you are for a reason.  Celebrating your unique life is the reason that That Domestic Chick exists. 

 I believe that a woman is created to hold a special place with her life and talents.  Thus, That Domestic Chick is a place for women to celebrate the uniqueness of their lives, how they are created, and how they can serve with their specific gifts and talents.  Whether it’s global finance, black hair care, minimalist living, coding, reading, off-road bicycling, or the ultimate chocolate chip cookie recipe, That Domestic Chick is here to encourage you in how you are awesomely and wonderfully made.

I’ll share what I like, guest bloggers of all ages will add their likes, and profiles of women with their unique gifts will fill the pages of That Domestic Chick, all to the glory of God.    Welcome!
