hedwig

by Colin Campbell of Meat For MenMen, sending our children to be educated by the unrighteous should cause us serious concern.

Fascinating Womanhood Review: Happiness

 by Samantha Fields cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons  So, it’s been a little while since we’ve delved into Helen Andelin’s world. We’re about halfway through the book, and we’ve reached the point where we’re going to start seeing a lot more ridiculous statements.

Peggy and Don from "Mad Men"

by Jonathan Lindvall from the Bold Christian Living Yahoo Group   Do you have any ministry for teens/young people (and their parents) about   leaving a romantic relationship because it wasn't God's time yet, how to leave   that relationship and how to pursue that previous friendship as a "friendship   and sister/brother in Christ" rather than the previous romantic interest?

by CaluluFor the past few days I've been reading through the accounts by ladies who'd worked with Bill Gothard, ATI's founder and venerated head, over at Recovered Grace.

I have been reading through the Pentateuch (first five books of the Bible), and I just finished Numbers 30. This is the passage that speaks about vows made unto the Lord by the people of God. Making a vow to the Lord is a serious matter, and God takes vows made to Him extremely seriously. Christ Himself even addresses the practice of making vows unto the Lord and castigates the Jews for their foolish vows and even more for their foolish attempts to wriggle out of honoring the vows they had made. [1] … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Putting Off Marriage To Get An Education?

youngmarriage

by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar - Why We Should Encourage Our Children to Marry Young We could have the talk about the unnecessary hype of college but that would take too long. If we could understand that college may be necessary for highly specialized vocations, but generally, not necessary for a good education and training in most vocations, we would begin the process of demoting the college degree from some idolized status. It is now, especially in our highly technological age, only one of many ways to a higher education, not the least of which is laborious and expensive. … [Read more...]
