Titus 2 Tuesday: Tina Jobe

Charity begins at home.

Before ranging far afield to acknowledge the accomplishments of ladies who, while I admire them and have learned from them, aren’t actually on the list of people I could call for advice, I’d better first tip my hat to a real friend. While many women are struggling with being at home without any real feminine role models in this feminist world, I’m blessed to have someone who fits the Titus 2 bill nicely right here at home. She is reverent in the way she lives, not a slanderer, definitely not addicted to much wine, and she has a heart for teaching what is good, both to her children and to others. And, most importantly, she has a blog to which I can link.

Meet Tina Jobe, who blogs at The Jobe Journal. I told Jesse a few weeks ago that if Tina knew what I really thought of her, modest soul that she is, she’d probably die of embarrassment. I’m about to kill one of my favorite women in the whole world for you people. You’re welcome.


Jobes. Adorable, no?

I love this lady.

Tina is one of the few ladies in my life who can opine wisely on practically anything, if I can just catch her standing still long enough to ask her a question. True to the Titus 2 model, she is one busy lady. She never seems to be too busy to help others, though, especially younger or less spiritually mature women who need a helping hand or a kind word. Or a whole lot of kind words. She is rather chatty and very extroverted, so once you catch her, you can usually keep her for a minute. πŸ˜‰

Between helping run a Tapestry of Grace co-op, homeschooling six active children of widely diverse ages and interests, and being a beloved friend to, oh, a gazillion or so local people, I honestly don’t know how she has time to sleep. And she still looks better rested than I do. Sigh.

If you’re at all interested in classical home education, the Tapestry of Grace curriculum, or just raising good kids (and those are some awesome kids), Tina’s blog posts–which I hope to convince her to write more often, because she’s obviously not busy enough–are a gold mine of information. I want to be Tina when I grow up. Alas, there can only be one, so run on over and bookmark or subscribe to The Jobe Journal.

Your turn.

As I said before, we’re all Titus 2 “older” women in some way, no matter how old or young we may be. You just need to be a step ahead of somebody! Some of us are just two-er than others, I guess. You, blogging moms and grandmothers, are invited to link up with your own contributions to the Christian homemaking community’s stores of information so that we can all learn from each other. Click the little blue “add your link” button at the bottom of this post to participate. There are only two rules:

  1. Your post must be related to our roles as wives, mothers, and/or homemakers. Topics can include advice, encouragement, recipes, sermonettes, or anything else you can think of that fits the theme.
  2. You must include either the T2T button, or a link to my home page or this post somewhere on your own home page or post so that everyone can see that you’re linked up.

    Oh dear Cindy, and if you knew what I thought of you, you’d die of embarrassment too. I love you and this may be the nicest thing I’ve ever read about me, and, I am quite humbled. We still need to get together so you can teach me more about my blog and how to use it! I am just blown away with “Get Along Home” and all you are doing here :)

      I hope you mean that first sentence in a good way. LOL. As for GAH, I don’t actually know what I’m doing. I just write stuff and throw it out there and hope for the best. But what I do know, I’m happy to tell you!

    She seems like a cool lady!! What a nice blog post. I am sure you really blessed her Cindy.

    I love seeing things like this. Yes, we need more Titus 2 women in our world to help out the ones still growing. Looking forward to reading all who link up, so that I may learn something new.

    It’s always nice to meet another homeschooling family! I need all the guidance I can get since we just started this year. :-)

    A question about the link-up: I linked up, and tried to add the button, and it took up half the page- it was huge! Any idea why that might be? I still added a link to here, but I wanted to let you know about that.

    • Cindy March 13, 2013, 8:45 am

      I might have used the wrong sized image to make the button. If you’ll insert this:

      height=”200″ width=”200″

      between img and src in the code, that should fix it for you. You’ll probably have to type it in instead of copying and pasting because of the quotation marks. I’ll go hunt down the right image. Sorry about that. Thanks so much for letting me know!

    • Cindy March 13, 2013, 8:59 am

      Would you do me a favor and try the new code? I think it’s fixed.

      • Becky March 13, 2013, 3:07 pm

        It works. Thank you!

    I love that the first link is to “Never Getting it All Done” and then mine is “How to Get it All Done” πŸ˜€ I think the answer might surprise you, and make you realize that you probably are getting it all done!

      I’m also getting a kick out of the “to the mom who quit” and “to the mom who is ready to quit”. Two sides to every coin, right? πŸ˜‰ Thanks for linking up!
