My Brave Sisters

by AJ cross posted from her blog I am PhoenixThe other day, I saw an ad for a TV show where a group of Amish young people were set loose in NYC. I laughed because I knew what they were going through.

“Defrauding” or How Men Can Keep Women From Stumbling!

by Hopewell - crossposted from her blog Hopewell Takes On LIFE! sourceThanks to TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" America has discovered Bill Gothard's idea of  "defrauding" or making men "stumble." How does this happen? If you watch the show you know it's because someone forgot to call out the code word "Nike" to warn the men and boys to avert their eyes.

To Stand Up and Speak: The Spiritual Abuse Survivor Blog Network

by Melissa Permission to LiveMy sister was the one who introduced me to No Longer Quivering. She didn’t actually mean to, she told me she was reading a website called Quivering Daughters, and when I googled it I found No Longer Quivering instead.

Of course neither claim was true, I believe at that point Vyckie Garrison was only questioning her faith, and even though she now considers herself an atheist, I have never experienced to her to b … [Read more...]
