By AlethaOriginally posted on Yllom MormonCreated To Need A Help Meet, pp. 156---157We are still talking about Michael's idea that wives need sanctification and cleansing. Why? Because Christ and the Church is the same as husband and wife! Because...Bible? Oh, and I hope you're ready to really dive into the Bible, because this section is chock full of scripture. Washing of the WordLook at the passage again and this time focus on verse 26.Ephesians 5:25-27 (Emphasis … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Don’t Take Your Kids to the Doctor

Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 219 A good woman has a lot to offer the marriage. A man is wiser and more successful in his endeavors because his wife has a great deal of informational resources and a lot of hard work to add to the mix. Not surprisingly, studies show that a man with a stay-at-home wife makes a higher income than a man with a working wife or a man without a wife. A stay-at-home wife frees a man up to be more productive at work because he doesn't have to worry about the … [Read more...]

By AlethaOriginally posted on Yllom MormonCreated To Need A Help Meet, pp. 154---156I realized something just now. I skipped 2 pages of my review last post.

TTUAC: Child Labor (or, Who Needs Academics?)

Child Labor

To Train Up A Child, chapter 12We are now to Michael's chapter titled "Child Labor." I've decided to cover this chapter in one post even though there are two main topics covered here---first, the importance of hyper-gendering children's chores, and second, the relative importance of manual labor and academic instruction (By now, you can probably guess which one is highly valued and which one is devalued). Trust me, you don't want to miss either section!So let's get started! Gendering … [Read more...]

CTNAHM: Your Calling Begins With Sanctifying Your Wife

By AlethaOriginally posted on Yllom MormonCreated To Need A Help Meet, pp. 153---154Today we are continuing Michael's extended---and extended---sermon on what he dubs "washing of the word". I interpret this to mean "Telling your wife what to fix to make her what you want", but I'm a cynic. Let's see what Michael has for us today! Washing of the WordMost men are ignorant of the grand program of which they are a vital part. They drag around complaining and blaming, wishing for … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Are You a Dumb Cluck?

IS098Q1LN

Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 217---219 Dear Mrs. Pearl,I am so tired and discouraged. I feel as though my husband just doesn't love me or care for his family as he should. The house is falling apart. The yard is full of trash. The last straw is that the sink is leaking so badly that the floor under the sink always stays wet. He is quick to help anyone who calls for help, but to get anything done around here is impossible. Last night we had a big fight because of the screen door. It has … [Read more...]
