The knowledge of what it is to be a woman didn’t go down in history books or tomes of philosophy. It was passed from woman to woman. Women lived in close-knit communities where they taught each other to clothe and feed their families’ bodies. And they taught each other to clothe and feed their families’ souls.

Recovering that tradition is what Experimental Wifery is all about, but it isn’t an easy task. That’s why we recall lessons from our friends, mothers, grandmothers, and great-grandmothers. Why we read great books and watch great films of the past and present with women we want to be like—and a few we don’t. And why we look back to great women from history to learn how they found their own ways to be great women and wives. It’s an experiment for married and marriage-minded women who want to learn to be better women, wives, and people.
