Reposted from Homeschoolers Anonymous HA note: Kathi is a Bible-belt midwest transplant to the beautiful Pacific northwest. After homeschooling her kids for 10 years (she decided that high school math and science were not her strongest subjects), both kids are in public school. She is a former church goer and finds herself in that unstudied demographic of middle-aged Nones. She has a B.A. in Urban Ministry and a M.S.W. Her goal is to work with children who have been abused or are in foster care. She loves to knit, cook and read (not in any particular order). The following was originally published on Kathi’s blog Moving Beyond Absolutes on April 5, 2014 and is reprinted with permission.  I h … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Protecting Your Courting Daughter in a Pornified (not real word!) World

Continuing on from this mornings "Pride & Prejudice" moment, Mr. Bingley courting and proposing to Jane Bennett. Jane is much closer to the Evangelical Christian ideal of a 'Godly' unmarried woman than her sister Elizabeth

by RVD from the blog The Christian Pundit - Of Course Courtship is Fundamentally FlawedWonder if the admin at The Christian Pundit realizes that the definition of 'Pundit' is "an expert in a particular subject or field who is frequently called on to give opinions about it to the public." Experts usually do not make up words or misspell others. Who exactly is calling on these 'experts'for their opinions? The name of the site is deceptive. … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Your Husband Can’t Cover For You

shopping

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 216—217In this section, we see the alternative to the “good woman” Debi outlined in her three examples last week. In that passage she spoke of men who are lazy, or bad fathers, or dishonest, and informed women who may be wives of these men that it is their duty to cover for their husbands’ faults and make them appear faultless to the world. This week she speaks of women who are spendthrifts, or who leave their children with sitters, or who take advantage of others’ time and resources (her equivalent of each category for males). … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Return of Women’s Sexual Honor?

When I see LAF and others of their ilk putting Elizabeth Bennett on a pedestal as the ideal of Christian womanhood I have to wonder if we actually read the same version of "Pride & Prejudice" as Lizzie is feisty and independent, nothing like a Titus 2 woman.

Not Quoting Quiverfull: Memories of ‘The Rod’

child

M. Dolon Hickmon, author of 13:24 - A Story of Faith and Obsession, has written a new article about the recent events with NFL player Adrian Peterson. It's a difficult but good read because of the unflinching descriptions of the Christian child discipline suffered by the author at roughly the same age as Peterson's son. People do carry the memories of what happens to them as young children into the rest of their lives as Hickmon proves in his piece. … [Read more...]

“Real Marriage” review: 3-18, “New Marriage, Same Spouse”

bad-dobby

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons [content note: sexual violence, emotional abuse] I’m doing something different with Real Marriage than how I reviewed Fascinating Womanhood and Captivating; with the last two books, I’ve read the entire thing before I started and then did one chapter at a time, trying to keep the message of the whole book in mind. After reading the first few chapters of this book, I realized I couldn’t handle that– not spiritually, not emotionally, not psychologically. So, for this review, what you’ll be reading from me will lean in the direction of gut reaction and instinct, since I don’t know where Mark and Grace are taking this. … [Read more...]

Burning Down The Woodshed

woodshed

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Defeating the Dragons As my partner can attest to, one of the things that have stuck with me from growing up in the Deep South is my reliance on idiomatic Southern expressions. In my area, “trip to the woodshed” was the most commonly used euphemism for corporal punishment, and while the adults who used this term obviously meant it humorously, hearing it made me feel a little sick. “I’m going to take you out back to the woodshed!” conjured images, for me, of lashings and beatings and screaming boys and girls– but in that old-fashioned Disney way, with the too-red cheeks and too-round eyes and deep furrows in the mother’s brow and the animation sequ … [Read more...]
