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 6 – Homeschoolers Embracing The World?

quotingquiverfull

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Jumping Ship Part 2Editor's note: Now Michael is responding to questions from his earlier posting on this subject. More doubling down on sin in other folks homes. Plus that whole old Christian martyrbating belief that the Devil is literally under ever bush seeking to feast on some poor helpless young adult former homeschooler. That old Devil is a busy dude the way they talk about him.This is part two of Michael's five part series on SGA jumping the family ship. Like part one at the end of each multi part bit we'll take a couple of days QQ breather  from the series before going on to the next part. It's just simply too toxic to do in one fell … [Read more...]

News: Does A Jill and Derick Dillard MInistry Mean The End Of “19 Kids & Counting?

news

Shortly after this morning's posting about Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard leaving the Duggar Compound to form a ministry and work in Nepal this interesting bit popped up on TMZ - Jill Dillard -- I'm On a Mission And Not For '19 Kids & Counting' It points out something obvious that no one has considered or at least commented on in public - that the Dillards mission in Nepal and new ministry registered in Little Rock, Arkansas means that TLC's purposed plans to retool the show around Jill and Jessa plus perspective spouses isn't going to happen. Reportedly "19 Kids & Counting" is moribund and has almost no chance of resurrection and reappearance on TLC's line up. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Because It’s Always Satan If You’re Having A Bad Day/Week/Month?

quotingquiverfull

by Christie Elkins from For Every Mom - This is What Happens When Satan Steals Your MotherhoodEditor's note: Because you cannot just be having a bad day or week, it's always Satan stealing in to take your motherhood or whatever. There is simply too much blaming normal things happening on a deity that may or may not exist. Somehow they never seem to 'get' that if you put this much pressure on yourself to do something perfectly it's bound to go haywire the minute real life intrudes. It's not some devil working when you forget a pair of underwear in the bathroom for a week, it's simply the sign of a mind overburdened worrying about other more important things. Having spilled Lil' Friskies … [Read more...]

Createdtoneed

by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonpp 48-50Alrighty. I hope everyone is doing well. I'm really excited for this post, because Michael lets us play a game! I'm calling it the Sexist Stereotype Game, because it shows how sexist we really are. Let's jump right in, shall we? Text is in purple.I Need Her Sensitivity I need her companionship, mercy, and grace. The nature of man is found in the husband and wife's combination. God Adam "Male and female", It is as if one body and soul couldn't contain and express the fullness of God, so the Creator divided his attributes, grouping similar traits, putting them into two genders. If we were to make a long list of human … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Daycare Is A Counterfeit Mothering?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Brass Instead of GoldEditor's note: Nancy does the blaming shaming guilting thing she's so good at it leading to her stating that using daycare (and the unspoken shame of working a job) isn't embracing our Biblical roles as mothers. She doesn't answer why she didn't embrace her motherhood role when she adopted those children from Africa. I guess her words only work if you're a white Evangelical Christian women having your own children. … [Read more...]

Behind Compound Walls: Dueling Duggar Stories – Is Josh Duggar ‘Suicidal’?

Image by NLQ

Everything single morning I can count on a couple of things once I get out of bed. 1) The cats will demand food, 2) I will need copious amounts of coffee and 3) there will be a pile of articles involving the Duggar family landing in my email box. Personally I prefer the cats and coffee. One reason why is became many times the stories of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar stories are either generated by their PR firm or they all just contradict the hell out each other. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Discipline, Discipline, Discipline But Keep Your Daughters Unmarried?

quotingquiverfull

by former Vision Forum friend Geoffrey Botkin hawking his newest CD/DVD/book on raising children on Ladies Against Feminism - How To Practice Biblical Discipline.Editor's note: The ladies of Ladies Against Feminism didn't even bother to try and write a review or put into their own words why they endorse this particular item by Botkin. They copied and pasted this right from his website. Odd that there's been no updates for over seven months at his single very adult daughters website Visionary Daughters, no online web tutorials about gilding your outside or what to do when there's no real role for you any longer. Most curious how silent they've been. … [Read more...]
