Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – How Does Submissive Wife Translate From Girlfriend?

Answering

Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical, rational and the best possible solution, in other words 18 … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 30 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 5Editor's note: Not bad advice, at least if you compare it to most of Michael Pearl's advice. But this jumps out to me as beyond weird "When your heart is truly set on the future, on making the best of the present circumstances, you will lay down all of the past and relate to your son as if he were a lonely and needy kid whom you just met and are moved to bring hope and joy to his life." Sorry, but if one of your children is that bitter towards you no amount of 'Come To Jesus' calls are going to have any effect except to push them away. … [Read more...]

IFB Evangelist Allen Domelle Says Training Kids Is Like Training Dogs

Image by Bruce Gerencser

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserEditor's note: In light of the long series we've been running on Michael Pearl's Jumping Ship this dovetails nicely. It's the flip side, the anti-Pearl. Michael likes to expound on how he thinks you can keep your children obedient and part of the family faith here's a counter balance on why that doesn't work well in the natural.Did you know that training a child is a lot like training a dog?  Using Proverbs 22:6, train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old he will not depart from it, as a foundation, Allen Domelle, editor of the Old Paths Journal and an Independent Fundamentalist … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 29 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 5Editor's note: So first Michael says do not blame and then blames parents for what happened. What mental watusui does Michael have to do to come with this so many blatant bouts of cognitive dissonance? I'm getting whiplash for the rapid turn arounds in this series. … [Read more...]

Introduction to the Review Series – “Lies Women Believe”

lies-women-believe

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragon How to Win Over Depression and Redeeming Love were neck-and-neck in the last poll I did, but since my friend Dani Kelley is doing a review of Redeeming Love, I decided that my next review series would be the runner-up: Nancy Leigh DeMoss’ Lies Women Believe and the Truth that Sets them Free. In the comments, a lot of you mentioned how toxic this book was for you both personally and in your marriages. I received it as a gift when I was still at Pensacola Christian, and I remember feeling vaguely uneasy about it, although at the time I chalked up that reaction to “being convicted.” … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 28 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 5Editor's note: Pushing through to get past this last chapter in Jumping Ship from the No Greater Joy Magazine. I can see we're heading into the parental blaming and shaming seas. Please put on your life jackets and grab a barf bag. He's telling the parents to shut the heck up, which isn't the worst advice. I've always found that when there is a heated conflict with another sometimes stopping saying anything and listening to the other side is the best way to proceed. At least it usually defuses the anger of the other side enough to spark rational conversation. At the same time it is pretty funny to see Michael Pearl, Mr. Command … [Read more...]

20 Worst Things To Say To Someone Suffering

suzannet

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog Every Breaking WaveAs part of my adminning No Longer Quivering I have to stroll around the blogosphere a couple of times a day to see what's going on. This morning I found this list posted at two different places. This list made me almost retch upon reading it. But I've been told that the list and posting was sarcastic. I hope so because these are some of the worst things I've seen that could be said to a struggling person.The original posting was about how your friends can support you best when you leave your abusive husband. Granted, I've never had to do that, but I have gone through trauma, tragedy and pain, just like everyone else, … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Public Schools Filled With Mega Sin?

quotingquiverfull

by Voddie Baucham from Exodus Mandate - 5 Reasons NOT to Sent Your Kids Back to Public SchoolEditor's note: Many of Voddie's other four reasons are just as filled with blaming and scare tactics as this bit. But the claims of 'brutal beatings' seems to be something that is more associated with homeschooling done the Michael Pearl 'To Train Up A Child' way than at any public school. Homeschooling is also rife with abuse, a fact that Voddie seems not to realize. At least at public school teachers are mandatory reporters of abuse, unlike homeschool, where abuse gets hidden or denied until there's a dead body. Oh and I am so hoping Voddie decides not to pay  his taxes, as he seems to indicate … [Read more...]

Planet Mommywood Replies to Vyckie Garrison

Here, have a Sky Goat. Makes as much sense as the Planet Mommywood ladies. Image by Suzanne Titkemeyer

by Suzanne TitkemeyerThis morning one of our readers emailed me a link to a duo I've quoted here a couple of times in our Quoting Quiverfull feature and that Vyckie Garrison mentioned rather kindly and stated nothing derogatory about in one of her postings--- Quiverific!. The Planet Mommywood (is this a play on names ala Planet Hollywood and its over priced burgers? Confusing?) ladies, Jenn and Kristen, did a video in reply to Vyckie's article. … [Read more...]

Created To Need A Help Meet – Part 14 How Do I Need Thee? (Your Wife Was Created To Fill Your Sexual Needs)

Createdtoneed

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonpages 59-61Last post, we talked about foreplay and, as Michael calls it, the "2 minute pop".  We also re-touched on how premarital sex hurts the woman because she is the sensitive, weaker vessel.  Today we get to talk more about premarital sex, and women climaxing. Get ready. Text is in purple … [Read more...]
