Answering “Preparing To Be A Help Meet” – Competition and Guys

Answering

Another installment of giving better answers to the questions asked at Debi Pearl’s site message board for the book ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’.

There was just one big problem, many of the answers stray into either the outright bad and emotionally unhealthy to dangerous. Yes, typical Debi Pearl borderline abusive. Here’s what we’re going to be doing here at NLQ. Every week, once or twice a week, I’ll be posting up one of the questions from the message board and ask you, our readers, to answer that poor soul’s question in a way that is logical, rational and the best possible solution, in other words 18 … [Read more...]

News: Jana Duggar Leaves ’19 Kids & Counting’ For Real Life

news

If this is factual then - Run, Jana RUN!First, let me say I do not know for certain if this is real news or manufactured Duggar drama merely meant to drive eyeballs to the television show. It's popping up only in places such as Ok! Magazine, various television reality blogs and some internet news sources not well known for their veracity, such as the Examiner and Radar Online. It's also one of those articles that quotes an anonymous Duggar insider. Some of those 'insider' articles have turned out not to be true. … [Read more...]

The Smoke and Ash of Melting Memories

smokeash

by Cindy Kunsman cross posted from her blog Under Much Grace What are your earliest memories like?I remember some events as what seem like still photographs from when I was very young – like the yellow diaper service pail on the front porch with an embossed stork on it, though the pigment in the pattern had faded. I remember my mother sitting beside my white crib, reading different books to me. Though I could not have had a visit with him after I was three years old, I remember my orthopedist. He had jet black hair and wore a smock like doctors wore in black and white movies. I remember really liking him, but I don't remember talking to him or why I saw him. I remember my grand geek fas … [Read more...]

Born Secondary

Ophelia Benson of The Free Thinker has written an awesome take down of the blog post we shared a small part of recently by Karl Heitman. You remember Karl? He's the pastor that said he would not allow his daughter to go to college if her motives were not right.  Here is what Ophelia had to say about Heitman's upset at the idea of women being educated like men are: What he means, of course, is that the idea that girls and women are human beings just as boys and men are, and should have access to education just as boys and men do, has infiltrated the Christian culture so thoroughly that even Christians are shocked that he plans to prevent his daughter from getting an education. There's a n … [Read more...]

michaelfarris

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismIf you read my blog, you’re probably aware of the Christian homeschooling subculture’s patriarchy problem. A variety of prominent Christian homeschool leaders have been promoting patriarchal family structures at homeschool conventions and in homeschool publications for well over a decade, and two of those leaders—Bill Gothard and Doug Phillips—have recently fallen, engulfed in scandal. Michael Farris, another prominent Christian homeschool leader, has since come out criticizing these leaders and the “patriarchy” they taught. Now Farris has openly criticized “patriarchy” as part of a keynote address while keynoting at a homeschool … [Read more...]
