The Power of the Transformed Wife – You Dirty Lazy Woman!

by Suzanne TitkemeyerWe are now on Chapter 16 'Clutter No More' from Lori Alexander's confusing and disjointed book on being a stay-at-home wife “The Power of the Transformed Wife”The subjects still jump around like a frog addled with ADD and amphetamines in a confusing writing style.There's just one big problem with the chapter, worse than the hopping around. There is not one real strategy or idea on how to unclutter, even if Nancy references as a very important thing to do repeatedly in her book and on her blog. The majority of the chapter has been written by another blogger and all five pages can be reduced to this – keep your home immaculate, you lazy woman! Not one possible h … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Bragging About Messy Homes?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Bragging About Messy HomesEditor's note: Has someone been openly bragging about having a messy home? I've not seen that anywhere. Show me where this is, Lori, or shut up about it. What I have seen is women agonizing over being pulled too many directions at once, leading them to leave things undone and feeling guilty about it. Lori makes a lot of demands about clean homes for someone that had paid help. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Why Can’t Feminists Also Have Meek and Quiet Spirits?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - What Makes a Woman Feminine?Editor's note: Skipping a lot of quotes from the various Biblical commentaries that Lori used to justify her own thoughts on the subject. But here's the rub, there are women in the workforce out there that do fit the Biblical model of meek and quiet spirit, that go about their day peacefully blessing everyone they encounter. Why should the belief that men and women are equal automatically translate to loud boisterous behavior? It doesn't. This is another assumption by those outside of the workforce, like Lori. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 6 Everything Women Do is Wrong?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - The Jezebel ProfileEditor's note: Last bit. We learn that women can try to control without even realizing they are. In Debi Pearl's world there is no winning for a woman no matter what you do. The goal post shifts every time you look. That is the ultimate in keeping someone cowed, controlled and fearful, never let them assume they are doing anything right. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Vain Self-Indulgent Women With Designer Purses Are Not ‘Godly’?

Unknown at Got Questions.Org - What Does it Mean to be a Godly Wife? Editor's note: Notice this seems to be a feature of Evangelical Quiverfull - the need to denigrate women who are living even slightly differently than they are. All the popular shaming ad blaming is here, be attractive, but not too attractive! Don't watch television or use your own hard-earned money for a designer purse, unless you get it for twenty bucks at Goodwill. No gossiping and gossiping includes ever saying anything about the husband that is not glowingly positive. Ugh! So much so hateful and wrong in these assumptions of what unGodly women by their metric do all day! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Must Vote Same as Their Husbands?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Why Does Disobeying Our Husbands Blaspheme the Word of God?Editor's note: 'Political'? This is something that Lori is digging out of very old commentaries that is not once mentioned in Titus. Pulling things out of her derrierre again just to support her toxic ideas. Vote however you like. There's no rule anywhere in the Bible that forbids it or says that you even have to tell your spouse, or anyone else, how you voted. This more more of her nitpicking that ignores the large scope of the gospel and the words of Jesus. … [Read more...]

The Power of the Transformed Wife – Misunderstanding Proverbs 31 to Mean Stay Home and Clean

by Suzanne TitkemeyerWe're on Chapter 12 this week in Lori Alexander's confused and confusing tome on the role of submissive women in their families. The title is 'Keepers at Home' and it contains some doozies of toxic nuggets along with a willful misinterpretation of what the Proverbs 31 woman looks like.Let me state that this chapter coming right now in my life is seriously triggering to me. I am packing for an overseas move to Costa Rica. At the same time I am having my house slightly remodeled to rent the house out, new bedroom carpets and painted along with a few upgrades. I'm up to my eyeballs in boxes, dust, shreds of wallpaper being removed, someone else tearing out my … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Always Weaker?

by members of Lori Alexander's Facebook page as quoted on The Transformed Wife - Why Do Women Despise Being the Weaker Vessel?Editor's note: This is a sad pile of rationalizations for being stay at home moms. Notice not one of them says that they do it because it's what they want to do, or that it makes them happy. Feminism is not so that every women is forced to work outside of the home, it is so that every woman has the option to do that which makes her feel fulfilled in her life. Quiverfull and Lori want to see everyone stripped of any options. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Medicines, Only Foods?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Nourishing and Healing Your Family With FoodEditor's note: While no one would dispute the importance of serving healthy foods to your husband and children some of these claims of healing because of fermented homemade food are childish at best. If you go to Lori's site and read the rest of this she's busy reciting her many health problems before putting down someone that pointed out that God could heal her. Just bad all the way around. Eat healthy, sure, but dismissing medicine, doctors and the prayers of your faith community seems short-sided.Has anyone else noticed that this author seems to talk about food a great deal, about … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Sex Gives You Cooties?

by Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church - Flee FornicationEditor's note: Has anyone ever heard of picking up non-STD infections from lots of sex with others? News to me. Plus the whole 'Why by the cow when you can get the milk for free' is one of the most insulting cliches that reduces women to sex objects/animals. Also, is rampant fornication more of a problem in the church than out in the real world? The way that Vaughn Ohlman, Steven Anderson and others carry on about the subject makes you think that the Quiverfull world is one short step away from a Roman orgy scene out of Caligula. Circle, circle, dot, dot, dot I'm glad I got my cootie shot. … [Read more...]
