Our home was an emotionally sterile one and, although I know now that this is not true, as as child I believed my parents did not love me. I decided that when *I* had kids, if they grew up knowing nothing else, they would know for sure that I loved them more than bre … [Read more...]

"To whom much is given, much will be required." [Note: this series is dedicated to Quivering Daughters by the former-Quiverfull moms at No L … [Read more...]
