by Jenny McGinnis at Above Rubies - Daughters in Waiting: Finished School? What Now? Upon reaching the age of 18 and officially graduating from our family home school, I immediately met with very intense pressure from friends, teachers, and others to pursue a profession, attend college and even move out and get a "place of my own."  Many people assured me this would enable me to become a successful, independent career woman. … [Read more...]

Book Review – 13:24: A Story of Faith and Obsession by M. Dolon Hickmon

by Suzanne Titkemeyer  cross posted from her blog Seeking The LightBook Review: 13:24: A Story of Faith and Obsession by M. Dolon HickmonA good lesson for me is to never judge a book by its cover, literally.Before I start my review I have to confess that when '13:24' first came to my attention I had no interest in reading it, not even with Vyckie Garrison of NLQ's recommendation.

I knew there would be descriptions of physical and spiritual abuse and figured I was not going there again because this book would trigger me … [Read more...]

A family can be Quiverful without preaching Christian Patriarchy or requiring daughters to remain at home until marriage, for example. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Satan Did It?

Don't know if anyone here has been following the saga of Flip Benham's sons and HGTV. You remember Flip, he is the head of Operation Rescue/Operation Save America and one of the big early players in the Right to Life movement.Flip organizes folks to carry signs, protest at any clinic that might offer abortion services and Planned Parenthood clinics. They block entrances, parking lots and try to harass anyone working at the clinic or visiting for any reason. Which is sad because there are lots of legitimate reasons to visit those clinics that have nothing to do with getting an abortion. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The ‘Me’ Monster Mom?

by Erin Harrison from No Greater Joy Magazine - The 'ME' Monster Later, I met this man, a guy who was working with Mark on a job. Something drew me to him. He looked at me and told me, even as I smiled, that there was a sadness in my eyes. It was like a gift. I opened up to this person I did not even know, and he told me how sinful I was. Me? Sinful? I was sinned against as an innocent child. I was rejected by nasty people. I was hurt and in pain. How could I be to blame in this? At first it made me angry. … [Read more...]
