CTNAHM: A Tale of Two Doctors


By Aletha Originally posted on Yllom Mormon Created To Need a Help Meet, pp. 128---130 Today we get a lovely little anecdote about how members of various types of men appear in real life.

CTBHHM: God or Husband—Whom Do I Obey?


Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 210---211 Debi just finished telling her readers that God's desire is for mothers to be keepers in the home, and that if they leave their children with others (even for as little as ten minutes) their children could end up molested or worse. She went so far as to say that not being a stay at home mother was to commit blasphemy against God. Now she addresses an important question, because she has put her readers in a bit of a dilemma. Whom Do I Obey?  What … [Read more...]

CTNAHM: Michael’s Take on Politics


By Aletha Originally posted on Yllom Mormon Created To Need a Help Meet, pp. 127---128 Just when I thought Michael's talking about the 3 types of men was over, we get another chapter about them.

Apples, Oranges, Apricots As we said earlier, most men are not exclusively one type, but I have never known a man to be a balance of all three. Upon meeting a young man it is readily apparent which of the … [Read more...]

TTUAC: Police State


To Train Up A Child, chapter 9, part 2 We are still in the chapter titled "Training Examples."

THE LITTLE FOXES SPOIL THE VINES We just returned from having supper with some good neighbors. They are a fine young couple who are just beginning their family.

CTNAHM: What Command Wives Want


By Aletha Originally posted on Yllom Mormon Created To Need A Help Meet, p. 125 Today we finish up the chapter on Command Men. Like the previous 2 chapters, Michael ends this chapter with a wish list from the wives of Mr. C's. It's a short little section, Ladies' Wish List Julie writes: "You ask for a wish list. Here's mine: I wish my husband would be more patient, less irritable, and more gentle with me and the children. This is a logical wish. Honestly, I'm sure … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Stay at Home or Your Child Will Be Molested


Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 208---209 Debi is really good at scaring women into doing just as she says. Have you noticed that? If you don't submit to your husband and have sex with him any time he asks . . . you will end up divorced and living in a dumpy duplex. And so on. Well, this week we begin the chapter titled "Keepers at Home." And according to Debi, if you are a mother and don't stay home with your children as commanded by God, well, there will be consequences. Scary … [Read more...]
