Worthwhile Reads:

Joe of Incongruous Circumspection is starting a series reviewing and refuting Bill Gothard’s manual on how wives should meet their husbands’ “seven basic needs.”

Sarah of Enigma, who was raised Quiverfull and has since left, writes about the pain she feels because a friend who grew up with her has cut her out of her life.

She gave birth to a daughter this week; A little baby girl that I will never meet. She will never call me “Aunty” and I will never get to tell her stories of how adventurous and silly her mommy always was. My heart breaks a little more every day. How many more friends will I lose on this journey?

If you haven’t already read it, an article published two years ago in Bitch Magazine is the best introduction to the stay at home daughter movement I have seen yet.
