“I long to give my life away–every part of me. I want to be so empty on earth and so full of the things of heaven.” — says Quiverfull mom of 9 (6 with disabilities), whom “the Father has chosen” to adopt 4 frozen embryos … “Twin boys born from the same batch of embryos both have profound special needs.”

As I frequently say: If you don’t mind ending up dead, or wishing you were dead, go ahead and give Christ-like martyrdom a try.

QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders or their followers/enforcers and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull honestly and thoughtfully.
