by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, Feminism Created To Be His Help Meet, pp. 180—182 So, Debi gets mail. Or rather, Michael does, but whatever, it made into Debi’s book.

Think Progress did a story on the "Princeton Mom" Susan Patton and her recent appearance on Fox News - Husband Appreciation - Sage Advice For Wives.  “If you are in your mid-30s or older the idea that you’re going to find yourself another husband, almost impossible,” Patton predicted. “And if you don’t believe me ask your maiden aunt, she will tell you when she’s done feeding the cats.” … [Read more...]

homeschooledhypocrites

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy Magazine - Hypocrisy in the Homeschool Ranks? Why would homeschoolers, conservative Christians, be singled out as perpetrators of hypocrisy?
