Glad you found us!

This blog is everything that I wish I had when I first started my journey as a young woman dating a Master Mason.  I hope that it may serve to be a guidebook, answer questions that you did not know you had, and inspire you to be involved with Freemasonry alongside your Master Mason. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to comment, or email me at themasonslady@gmail.com

  1. Nice work! I found your site via a Reddit post about your scotch article. I’m a Mason from Round Rock Texas, and i am giddy that you have this blog. I put it on our Lodge facebook page and immediately sent it to my wife. Thanks for your efforts. – Tom

  2. Is there a group for girls before the Rainbow Girls? I’ve heard mention of something for younger girls, I just cannot remember what it was.

    • Job’s Daughters allows members to join at 10, where Rainbow is 11, but these are separate organizations. Both may have sub-groups that allow younger members, I would recommend contacting your local chapter or bethel!

      • I just found this blog and I’m going to refer it to my own Lady and the ladies of other Masons from my lodge. There’s a ton of useful information here for a woman in that special position of being a Mason’s Lady that I am glad is being shared.

        To answer one of the above question regarding a youth group for girls younger than Rainbow age: The Rainbow organization at my Lodge in Omaha Nebraska is piloting a Rainbow Pledge program. This is intended for the younger girls like you suggest in your post.

        If you are interested, I will send you the contact information for the person coordinating this effort for the younger girls.


    • Hello MasonLady! I’m very new to your blog, less than an hour new! I love it so far! Just to put it out there, there is also a youth group for girls that only meets in the state of NY. The Organization of Triangles Inc. I’m a majority member and now a member of my local OES chapter. http://ootny.org/

      • Glad to hear you enjoy it! To be honest with you, I do not know a lot about the Organization of the Triangles, as I do not live in New York, and there is not a ton of information online; so the website resource is very much appreciated!

  3. I felt that your site was done with excellent effort and correct supportive information without sharing too much. Keep up the good work!

  4. There is a lot of good information here. Thank you.
    Just wanted you to know that the Order of the White Shrine of Jerusalem is open to both women and men. Their ceremonial is based mostly on the beautiful Christmas story.
    Some Rainbow assemblies have pledges, a group for younger girls ages 7-11. They have their own ritual and sometimes join the older girls for fun activities. They also learn early on to dedicate themselves to service.
    Also teenage young men may join DeMolay. Their younger group is called squires.

  5. Thank you for creating this site. I’ve been a Mason’s Lady for 3 out of my 4 years of marriage, and it definitely has been a bit of a roller coaster. We’ve made some really great friends through the process though, and despite the challenges, I’m proud to have a Mason for a husband. The biggest thing for me is to get involved in the lodge- I’m actually the secretary of our Knights of St. Andrew, Ladies Auxiliary – which is chartered through the Scottish Rite of my state. Its great to be able to socialize and get involved without some of the ritual that comes with OES (and the drama in my chapter). We don’t have the other female organizations in my area, which is sad as I’d love to learn more about them.

  6. Am trying to find if a broach I have from my grandmother of Eastern Star, and married to a Freemason, has signifience?

  7. I have a question that has come up in my husband’s masonic motorcycle group, Can Mason wives were a pin that contains the square and compass?

    • It’s not exactly against the rules, but it’s generally looked down upon for a non-Mason to wear just a square and compass. Instead look for a ladies pin, often you will find ones that are like a square and compass with a rose or slipper. Those are generally the two symbols for women in Masonry.

  8. In answer to your above question about youth groups, the Job’s Daughters have a Jobie-to-Be program for girls age 9. Generally referred to as “To-Be’s” or “Bees”, these girls get sashed and are invited to join their Bethel for every event. They sometimes have “Bee meetings” during regular Bethel Meetings, with an adult “Bee Keeper” to answer any questions they may have about joining. This allows them to interact with the other Daughters and get to know their future Jobie Sisters.

  9. le droit humane, co-freemasonry, women’s grand lodge of belgium, women’s freemasonry…yes, women can be and are freemasons.

  10. There is an old gravestone in Texas for the daughter of a mason and I was wondering if you knew what the letters BTKC and FNDOZ stand for?

    • I apologize for not getting back to you sooner, I needed to do some digging on this. From what I can find, these letters may correspond to one of two things. Either the now defunct “Mason’s Daughters and Wives” degree, or the group The Heroines of Jericho, which really only exists within Prince Hall Lodges these days.

  11. How much control does the Grand Master and Lodge have over the Grand OES Chapter/ particularly the finances? We have a new GM and he has pretty transferred money from our Grand Chapter account into the Grand Lodge. I

  12. I’ve just found you when looking at articles around what to expect from a White Table. It’s our first since my husband became a Mason 18 months ago. I’m looking forward to reading all of your insights which I hope will give me much guidance and information on how to support my husband on his Masonic journey.

  13. HI there!
    I am a fellow lodge wife and a proud one at that! We live in Kingston Jamaica and my hubby is an English Freemason. I have read a few of your articles and I love them. I’ve also requested to join the community group on Facebook. I’m excited to meet new lodge wives. 🙂

  14. I am a woman and not a member of the OES and I do not believe anyone in my family is a mason, at least not for a few generations, yet I found a beautiful star ring that I did not know was the symbol of the OES. I just thought, wow! Beautiful! 5 stones and diamonds and a star shape and engraved with 1946 as a date inside the band, so I knew it was antique. My fiance and I chose it as my wedding band for our recent elopement, and days later, while showing it off, was told that it is an OES ring. Now I am feeling like I am breaking a rule or something and need to get a new ring? Any thoughts? Please help!
