CTNAHM: The Heavenly Climax of Spirit!

Michael Pearl

By Aletha Originally posted on Yllom Mormon Created To Need A Help Meet, pp. 151---154 Today we are starting the chapter called Washing of the Word. Supposedly Michael is going to explain how men are to sanctify their wife. Of course, the purpose of sanctification  is to turn the wife into the ideal help meet. And by that, I mean turn the wife into what the man wants. Let's begin, shall we? Also in this section is a rare treat. We are blessed an honored to get a genuine sermon in the … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Your Husband Can’t Cover for You

Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 216---217 In this section, we see the alternative to the "good woman" Debi outlined in her three examples last week. In that passage she spoke of men who are lazy, or bad fathers, or dishonest, and informed women who may be wives of these men that it is their duty to cover for their husbands' faults and make them appear faultless to the world. This week she speaks of women who are spendthrifts, or who leave their children with sitters, or who take advantage of … [Read more...]

CTNAHM: Cleanse Your Wife with Your Words

By Aletha Originally posted on Yllom Mormon Created To Need A Help Meet, pp. 147-150 We are finishing up the chapter on Bible verses. Just a few more to get through! What I find most annoying about this section is the part where Michael just gives a bunch of verses that are vaguely connected to the point he's trying to make, but doesn't explain them. It feels like he's a kid saying "My dad said so, it's true!" without really understanding what is actually being said. Marriage, the … [Read more...]

TTUAC: Snap To It!

To Train Up A Child, chapter 10, part 2  This week we finish Michael’s chapter on “safety training.” In this section we see more about the lengths to which Michael will go to make children convenient above all else. GET OUT FAST Last winter, my two girls, nine and eleven, were riding with me in the old 4x4 Army truck. The gravel road was bumpy and rough. When I made a stop at an intersection, I heard the two, twelve-volt batteries, which are located right behind the seats, shortout and beg … [Read more...]

CTNAHM: What Saith the Scriptures? (Yes, it’s THOSE Scriptures)

Honestly, I'm not too excited about this section. Once, my husband's ex-coworker (and ex-best friend, now), and I had a disagreement. I had a problem with my husband going to his house for a game day with a whole bunch of guys. I had a lot of reasons (I was mentally unstable at that point, the wives were literally expected to … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Wives, Cover for Your Husbands

Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 214---215 This week we begin Debi's chapter on being "Good," which is the next character trait listed in Titus :4-5. The Crown "A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones" (Proverbs 12:4). A good woman is a crown to her husband. She can make a mediocre man be as honored as one wearing a crown. This is a really good summary of this passage. The entire point is that by being "good" the woman can … [Read more...]

CTNAHM: Understanding Your Woman’s Motivation

By Aletha Originally posted on Yllom Mormon. Created To Need A Help Meet, pp. 139-142 If you are anything like me, you read the title of this chapter and stopped, did a double take, and then you jaw dropped. Did you re-read the title, just to make sure you got it right? Because I sure did. But it's true. This chapter is about the three kinds of women. Yes, Michael allows that women have personalities. But, of course, the point of learning about women's personalities is to figure out … [Read more...]
