Homeschooling, Child Abuse Rates and the ‘Liberal Conspiracy’

invisiblechildren

by Heather Doney cross posted from her blog Becoming WorldlyHomeSince Michelle Goldberg’s Daily Beast article “The Sinister Side of Homeschooling” came out, there have been a number of people expressing support for what some of us homeschool grads are doing to raise awareness, but there have been others that have accused us of being part of some vast liberal conspiracy to force children into the public schools to be indoctrinated and too many people have crunched the numbers of deaths reported on Homeschooling’s Invisible Children and concluded that there are less children dying in homeschools than in the public schools so our conclusions about homeschooled children needing more protect … [Read more...]

I have been there. I still am there. And it is such a comfort to know that ou … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: The King Part 4

King Clovis I using the royal touch at his coronation to heal a man of scrofula.

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids Collide This is the second to last "King" post - and the last one that talks directly about the "King's" lunacy."Kings usually like fine meals served on time and in good order.  If you are an especially fine cook, your gifts will be greatly appreciated.  A Kingly Man is not one to help out in the kitchen."Translation: Your husband, who never lifts a finger, is free to complain about your crappy cooking, your failure to plate everything like a restaurant , and/or your inability to have dinner ready when HE wants it."Kings like to talk about their plans, ideas, and unfinished projects.  They will be very objective, very unem … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Not Quiverfull?

quiverfull

by Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar from "A Love That Multiples" pages 92-93 We find it amusing how many reporters copy and past information they find about us that someone else has copied and pasted without checking the facts. For instance, even though wiki and some Internet blogs report that we are part of the Quiver Full movement, we are not. We are simply Bible-believing Christians who desire to follow God's Word and apply it to our lives. God says children are a gift and a blessing and we believe it! QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: The King Part 3

queenjane

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideSo much toxicity in FOUR paragraphs.   "A good King sees the bigger picture and strives to help the greatest number, even if it costs him his life and the lives of those he loves."  Remember in the Gospel where Jesus throws Peter in front of the guards who came to arrest him?  Or the time Jesus made it out of the temple after challenging the money-changers by blaming his brothers? Don't remember those?  Me either.  That's because Jesus NEVER sacrificed the lives of those he loved. Let's compare Debi's take with some quotes from the Catechism of the Catholic Church: … [Read more...]

by Susanna from her blog The Blessing of Verity - This world is not my home, I'm just-a-passin' thru..  Question:  Could you share your best tips for being content with your large family in such a small space?  I have to confess I’m not always content in our house.Answer:  Thanks for asking this excellent question!I want to be honoring to my husband, and it’s very hard for a good man when he feels like he isn’t able to provide what his woman really wants.  I don’t want to be like the petulant and demanding fisherman’s wife in the children’s story, who keeps sending her miserable husband back to the magic fish to wish for more and more and more, instead of being content with enough. … [Read more...]
