I can't sew

to save my life so my family would have no clothes. I also don't relish cleaning my clothes (which I won't have because I can't sew) by beating them on a rock (which seems to be a job only relegated to women in such a self-sustaining household).

There needs to be a balance in all things.

Modern appliances are a good thing but there is a line which when crossed makes one uber-dependent and inefficient.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.
