by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserMy wife and I have six children, ages 23, 24, 27, 32, 35, and 37. Polly had all of the children vaginally, without epidurals. Over the years, I have stood in the background and watched as Polly traded birthing war stories with other mothers. Mothers love to talk about length of labor, epidurals, methods of birth, breast feeding vs. bottle, cloth vs. disposable, and various other … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Be a Healer But Don’t Use Modern Medicine?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - You Are a HealerEditor's note: So it's not enough in Nancy's world to homeschool your children, grow a large garden, cook from scratch, keep an immaculate home, and have no negative thoughts and words, now you must also try to heal everyone around you and without much reliance on modern medicine? Nope, Nancy, there are things that are best left to doctors, like antibiotics when you have a serious infection, or insulin injections and monitoring your blood sugar. Nancy might want to note that giving others medical advice is illegal in some areas. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Negative Thoughts or Words Allowed?

by Kristin Eason from Nancy Campbell's Above Rubies - A House or a Home?Editor's note: She's been waiting to 'make a home' for a long time considering the author's eldest child is 15 years old, so no wonder she's having to tell herself not to be bitter and negative. One idea here that she doesn't explore is not a bad one - that it does not matter if you live in a rental house, apartment, trailer, hut, yurt, duplex or mansion. The structure does not matter because anywhere you are can be a 'home'. Instead the author chooses to focus on controlling your thoughts and words instead of simply being grateful for what you do have. She makes it all about attitude in a very wrong and controlling … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Public School is Evil, But You Are More Evil For Not Obeying?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater joy – Rising to the ChallengeEditor's note: So after accusing the letter-writer of sitting around eating bon-bons all day while reading and watching television Debi follows up with a little spiritual poison about not teaching anything of faith or being a prayer warrior. The implication is to leave all that stuff to the men folks and learn your place. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Working Women Hate Motherhood?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - There's a Big Difference!Editor's note: Nancy is busy making claims yet again that those that are educated and had or have careers before motherhood are hating motherhood, finding it frustrating and difficult. No studies or evidence of this beyond Nancy's claims of always stay home, never want anything beyond raising children. Same song with slightly different lyrics. Sorry, but motherhood isn't easy for anyone, Nancy, everyone experiences less than fun moments, frustrations and challenges, but it doesn't mean we're doing it wrong. … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Worship Baking Your Own Bread?

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.One of the things we're run across again and again in both former fundamentalist post-religion narratives and within the active Quiverfull world is a strange emphasis on baking bread for your family from scratch. During my years in a funda-gelical church I participated in it too. But I never knew why we were doing it. People talked about their bread, humble-bragged about their bread, shared their extra bread and recipes and at our church newcomers were all giving a fresh loaf of home baked bread to welcome them to our fellowship. Bread loomed large … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Women Cannot Resist Babies?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Who Can Resist A Baby?Editor's note: Who can resist a baby? Lots of folks. College students, senior citizens, high school students, men and women working towards a goal, single people, married people and hopefully those ladies in the path of the Zika virus. A baby is not a trophy or a prize collected at the end of the particular difficult game. They aren't a box to be checked off on a list. They are a serious commitment, a life time commitment and not everyone is prepared to make that commitment no matter how Nancy phrases it in bad poetry. … [Read more...]
