 Changing Your Stripes 

The Perfect Woman
.by Vickie Gunther.
(gently edited by Dr Matt).

Look at me, look at me, look at me now.
You can do what I do, if you knew how!

I study the scriptures one hour each day;
I bake and upholster and scrub, and I pray.

I keep all commandments you see, quite completely;
I speak to my little ones gently and sweetly.

Design all their clothes and sew all they wear,
Drive them to practice and cut all their hair!

I encourage respect for the local authorities;
Order each goal to be done by priorities.

I play the piano, bless all with my talents.
My toilets all sparkle! My check books are balanced.

One day a week every child gets a date;
Attend all my meetings — on time, never late!

I'm taking a class on the teachings of Paul,
But that is not all! Oh no, that is not all:

I track my bad habits till each is abolished;
Iron every t-shirt. My toenails are polished!

Our Evenings at home are ever delightful;
The projects I plan are both fun and insightful.

I do genealogy faithfully too.
It's easy to do all the things that I do!

Up early each morning, which isn't a shock;
I know all the names of the youth on my block.

I read to my children! I help all my neighbors.
I bless the community too, with my labors.

I exercise daily, cook menus gourmet;
My taxes are filed on the very first day!

I also file taxes for neighbors in need.
It's the least I can do to show love, word and deed.

I chart resolutions and check off each goal;
I seek each "lost lamb" on my Sunday School roll.

I store home-grown produce in summer and fall.
But that is not all! Oh no, that is not all:

I write in my journal and sing in the choir;
Each day, I write "thank you's" to those I admire.

My sons were all Eagles when they were fourteen.
My kids get straight A's, and their bedrooms are clean!

I have a home business to help make some money;
I always look beautifully groomed for my honey.

At shelters I volunteer one day a week;
I rotate car tires, fix each plumbing leak!

I grind my own wheat and I bake all our bread;
I have all our meals planned out six months ahead.

I rotate and store a large food supply;
My shopping for Christmas is done by July!

These things are not hard; it’s good if you do them.
You can if you try. Set your goals and pursue them.

It's easy to do all the things that I do.
If you plan and work smart, you can do them all too!

"It's easy!" she said . . . and then she dropped dead.

Dr Matt edited the previous poem to describe the Perfect Christian Woman.
The orginal poem presented at a Women's Conference at BYU
was written about: The Perfect Mormon Woman

Yet when conceived correctly, perfection is entirely do-able.

Getting Clear about Your Identity

The Greatest Prize
for Life's labors isn't
