Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Your Husband’s Obsessions?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - ObsessionsEditor's note: So one of  Nancy's early solutions is to try and change a man? Baawwhahahahahah! There is nothing more frustrating and useless than trying to change someone else. You can only change yourself. At least she realized that wasn't going to work with Michael pretty quickly. But her message of suck it up, be joyful and find something to do while he's obsessing (or just merely practicing his hobby) is not any healthier. … [Read more...]

And as far as I can see scrolling down the first few hundred, they are all messages of thanks and applause.But I have spent the last week struggling with it - feeling like I must inhabit an alternate universe. Because when I read this post, I didn't feel like applauding.I was distressed! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Your Husband’s Obsessions?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - ObsessionsEditor's note: It seems what Debi is describing here is more 'hobby' than 'obsession' for most men who aren't Michael Pearl. The difference she doesn't understand it level of emotional commitment. Most guys I've known that like to hunt don't plan all week and spent a good portion of the family money on hunting before abandoning the family to hunt. Takes a special kind of indifference to others needs combined with caring only for your own desires to become as obsessed over a normally harmless hobby to be labeled 'Obsessional' … [Read more...]

The Curse of Being Bound to an Image

Image NLQ original

by Sarah Henderson cross posted from her blog Feminist in Spite of ThemIt's been over nine years since I left my parents and over time my perception of how much progress I've made in my life has changed many times, fluctuating between sometimes thinking I am doing a terrible job at being an adult and sometimes thinking I am doing well. Through some enlightening conversations I've had recently with my friend James, who is in my cohort of ex-fundamentalists, I've come to realize that in spite of everything that I re-evaluated and realized since I left, I missed a very important thing. (I am not going to say that I missed one very important thing because I am sure that there are other t … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: When is it ‘Intentionally Available’ and When is it ‘Stalking’?

quotingquiverfull

by Kristen Clark from Girl Defined - How to be Intentionally Available Without Chasing BoysEditor's note: Remember all those screeds by the Botkin sisters, Von Ohlman and others in the Quiverfull Evangelical Christian movement about girls keeping their hearts pure waiting for courtship?  This is a bit different. The author started out by pointing out that Ruth pursued Boaz in a serious way to indicate she wanted him for her husband and she goes on to explain how a 'mature' Christian girl is allowed to do the same. The problem being is that some of this advice comes across like something someone obsessed might do instead of  a 'mature' person. Life is so much simpler outside the E … [Read more...]
