Now I know the woman in the image is not winking but it is the same type of ridiculous thoughts that Gothard pushes. From that particular wisdom booklet: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Bad Marriages Are Like Bad Health?

by Michael and Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine – Seven Pearls for Finding a Happy MarriageEditor's note: Skipping the next 'pearl' - which was forgive each other.
