Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 199---201This week we start Debi's chapter on being "chaste." Remember, she's going through the proscriptions in Titus 2: 4---5. Last week we finished her chapter on being "discreet." Let's get started! Dear Mr. Pearl,I am a 24-year-old male and looking for a wife. It is not as easy as it seems to find a decent girl. I want one who not only says she is decent, but LOOKS as though she is. A friend of mine married one of the girls of the church. She wasn't … [Read more...]

Parenthood, Selfishness, and Toxic Ideas

self-hug-love

I recently overheard some relatives of my husband say that not having children was a selfish choice, and that it was the choice to bear and raise children that was truly selfless. I cringed, but I was not involved in the conversation, so I didn't say anything. It did make me think, though, and I was reminded of a blog post I had come upon several days before with a very different message. It was titled "To the Women Who Choose Not To Have Kids."   To the women who choose not to have kids, I hav … [Read more...]

Prayer That Can’t Go Wrong

Over the holidays, my brother David lost his glasses. Soon a search was called and everyone got busy looking for the missing glasses. Finding them was important, because he needed to be able to drive, and he needed his glasses to drive. We searched high and we searched low, and it quickly became apparent that this would be no easy search soon over. We took a break and my mother soon began a prayer with words familiar from my childhood."Lord Jesus, please show us where David's glasses are. … [Read more...]

Is Vision Forum Gone?

staff2012

There has been no public announcement, but the Vision Forum Ministries site now includes only the resignation statements and the Vision Forum Inc. site is no longer selling anything, or even listing any products. This suggests to me that Vision Forum has collapsed entirely, and that the corporate wing is disappearing in addition to the ministry wing.If this complete collapse is the case, as it appears, this is an extremely positive change. Vision Forum has been probably THE pillar of the … [Read more...]

In Which HSLDA Conducts a Child Abuse “Investigation”

HSLDA logo

I recently came upon something posted on HSLDA's site some years ago that I found interesting, in light of what I have written about HSLDA in the past. HSLDA releases stories of the cases it handles in various states, partly to keep its members apprised of what it does and partly to encourage people to stay members. Anyway, this incident happened in Kentucky. Here is how it starts: Coming home at 8:30 p.m. on Saturday this summer, the Wall family were puzzled to see a sheriff's car and another … [Read more...]
