Sunday Shoutout: Framing Conversations

shoutout

First let me say I dropped the ball last week and completely forgot about posting a question or the answers of the week before. I'll try to do better ;)In the wake of examining Vaughn Ohlman's ideas about betrothal, Lana Hope's piece Duggars Are Not Crazy and other writing by those in and out of Christian Patriarchy I'm starting to consider the best ways we can engage in conversation with those we don't agree with. … [Read more...]

Sunday Shout Out Replies: If I Love My Husband

lovinghusband

Answers to last week's question: If I love my husband....Independent Thinker: If I love my husband I will.................. Leave the house to run errands, Christmas shop, or get my hair done during all Green Bay Packer games that do not fall on a holiday so my husband can watch the game in peace. I will not text him at work because he has a real job that requires him to go to all day conferences or sit thru five hour meetings. My text messaging would effect his job performance and he needs to be focused at work most of the day. I will prioritize taking care of my health because I don't want to burden him with preventable health problems that could have been addressed before they got … [Read more...]

Sunday Shout Out: If I Love My Husband…

shoutout

Back in May of this year we posted the thoughts of Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies Magazine and her followers on what ladies that love their husbands do for their husband to concretely express that love. Not that the list was entirely bad, but much of it was silly over the top actions and filled with empty insincerity.

And not just in the context of authority figure/subordinate or with people just like them. EVERYONE needs to know how to communicate with a boss, a coworker, a neighbor, a customer service representative, a customer, a good friend, an acquaintance, and a stranger, because those are all important but vastly different conversational partners. … [Read more...]

shoutout

This week we posted a bit about what the Botkins Sisters, Anna Sophia and Elizabeth Botkin consider essential for every young woman to study. The Botkin family is currently signing up people to take their newest Webinar - Ready for Real Life.It's obviously not the 1850s or the 1950s now, like many Quiverfull leaders try to return us to so their strategies of life developed with old days in mind aren't going to be very effective in our times. How must we shift to make a seamless transition in today's world? … [Read more...]

Sunday Shout Out Replies: Is It “Sinful” To Take Time For Yourself?

bath

Instead of posting the answers on Thursday we're going to post them on the Sunday after.Answers to last week's question posted below: Phatchick - IMO, to use an analogy N.C. would understand (since we are basically just tools to be used by God and our families), you can't use a tool 24/7, it wears out. We recharge our phones, notebooks and drills when their power gets low. … [Read more...]
