Quoting Quiverfull: Be a Light?

light

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - One of the Greatest What do you think is one of the greatest things we should have in our homes? I'd love to hear your response. I think it is the light of God. God is light and the very first thing He spoke into being was light. Jesus came to this earth to be the light of the world. He confessed in John 9:5: "As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world."He is no longer physically in the world, but now He lights the world by dwelling in us. Therefore, if Christ dwells in you, He wants you to light up your home with His light.Mothers certainly need to be filled with the light of God.

Quoting Quiverfull: Do It For The Menfolks?

adventurous

by Anna Sophia Botkin of Visionary Daughters and reposted at Ladies Against Feminism - What is Okay For a Girl to Do? from their new book/audio message 'Adventurous Femininity'As women we see our lives in terms of helping men with the challenges, quests, wars, and adventures. We need to be very careful that we don’t pursue a brand of femininity that is so obsessed with it’s own girliness, that it can’t get it’s hands dirty with real dominion.  Feminism, there is a lot more to that than women who dress up in pinstriped power suits and do man’s work.

Giving the Child the Rod

spanking

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismI don’t know exactly when it happened, but at some point early on my mom handed me the rod. She told me I was to spank my younger siblings if they misbehaved or broke any rules and she was not in the room. The rule was that I could spank any sibling at least five years younger than me. This meant that at ten I could spank my five-year-old sibling, and all those younger than him.Parents, don’t do this to your older kids. Please, please, just don’t. It breaks my heart because now, years and years later, my younger siblings don’t have any pleasant memories of my time with them. They tell me I was a bully, that they resented me, … [Read more...]
