Quoting Quiverfull: Cooking Dinner is a BLESSING!?

Pretty sure neither Nancy Campbell or Lori Alexander would approve of these fancy alcohol coffee drinks or the carrot cake.

Editor’s note: Well apparently Nancy and Lori Alexander have hive mind. They have both written about feeding your children this week. While Lori makes it into a shame and blamed filled allegation involving junk food and child training, Nancy takes the tact that it’s a holy blessed thing you are doing when you cook. She does throw shade at those that eat fast food.

It’s time to cook supper. “Not again,” you sigh. “Why can’t I have a break from cooking night after night?” Can I remind you that

preparing a meal for your family is not insignificant. It’s not a waste of time. It is very much a part of your mothering anointing.

We see a beautiful description of a godly woman in 1 Timothy 5:10 (NASB) which gives a description of her “good works.” “If she has brought up children, if she has shown hospitality to strangers, if she was washed the saints’ feet, if she has assisted those in distress, and if she has devoted herself to every good work.”

The word “brought up” is teknotropheo and means “to cherish, nourish, and give food to children; it is also used of nursing a baby at the breast.” It’s all about food! This means spending a lot of time in the kitchen! And the bigger they get, the more they want to eat.

Don’t look at cooking meals with resignation. Instead, do it with revelation. You have the privilege of feeding your children nourishing food. You are gathering them together around your table again. You are preparing the way to feed their soul and spirit as you read God’s Word at the end of the meal. You are teaching them about life and passing on values to the next generation.

There is too much fast food eating in our nation already! It’s not healthy eating and it negates valuable family togetherness in the home. If you don’t lovingly cook meals at home and pass on this tradition, what will the next generation do?

Make every meal a “love affair.”
