Quoting Quiverfull: Women Cannot Resist Babies?

quotingquiverfull

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...]

Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ – Birth Control Decisions

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’. Many young ladies ask questions on all sorts of different subjects brought up by the book. 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, OKrational and the best possible solution, in other words … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Motherhood Only Career That Matters Eternally?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Highest CareerEditor's note: Nancy pushes her main message yet again. What is it about women having choices, even simple choices like if you go to school or work outside of the home, that these people find so threatening? Isn't having a mother who feels fulfilled and happy better than having a mother who's resentful and upset all the time because she's doing something she doesn't want to do? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Young Y-O-U-N-G Women Need to Marry and Have Babies?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - The Biological Case for Polygamy and Marriage of Young WomenEditor's note: This is pretty scary to me because medical research has shown that people aren't finishing physically maturing until their mid-20s. That's just about the time that BGR says you should stop having babies according to his post. And his assertion that you have lost 90% of your eggs by 30? That information is from only one single study, not the follow up studies done by places like the Mayo Clinic that dispute this finding. This lie about fertility was show on the "New Girl" a few years back and has been thoroughly debunked. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 3 – Have Your Babies In Your Teens?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - Women's Ovaries Don't Agree With FeminismEditor's note: Now he blames 'feminism' for the rise in older maternal age and the reason that 'selfish women' think that they are entitled to some personal happiness the goals such as careers and educations. Completely ignores the fact that pre-feminism and pre-birth control that women of all ages died in childbirth and that constant breeding does not produce 'healthy children.' … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Have Your Babies In Your Teens?

quotingquiverfull

by Biblical Gender Roles from Biblical Gender Roles.com - Women's Ovaries Don't Agree With FeminismEditor's note: There is simply so much that is awful and typical of the quiverfull tendency to allow daughters to marry early that we're going to be examining this in parts like we do sometimes with the worst of Michael Pearl's writings. Apparently Biblical Gender Roles, like other patriarch-promoting types like Von Ohlman, believe that you should marry off your girls at peak fertility, which means not too long after they start their monthly cycles. He starts off the original article claiming that girls as young as 14 have less problems with pregnancy and childbirth than women starting in … [Read more...]

Happy Mother’s Day – Trying Out Motherhood

Image from Buzzfeed Tumblr

So this is sort of off topic and not Quiverfull related at all but in honor of Mother's Day this seemed appropriate to share. The Try Guys of Buzzfeed.com are exploring motherhood as only guys can. Enjoy.Too bad that trying out motherhood like this isn't mandatory in high school because it might just make kids think twice about sex without birth control. One of my children did the Baby Think It Over for three days and nights and by the end was laying in her bed crying that she felt 'so trapped'. The experience taught her that she was not going to be ready for motherhood for quite some time. Not a bad thing to realize. … [Read more...]

by Suzanne TitkemeyerAnother Mother's Day is almost upon us again and I have questions of all the readers here that left the Evangelical Quiverfull Movement. Do you regret having or trying to have a large number of children? What would you do differently if you did it over? What did you learn? What would you like others to know?Mother's Day can be one of the hardest days of the year for those in or out of the church because of society's insistence that motherhood be presented in a sentimental perfect light, even if you aren't Quiverfull. It's hard to stuff down negative feelings and experiences on a Hallmark manufactured holiday and pretend to a happiness you may not feel. If you are … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: If You Get Sick From “Doing It All” Then God Has Other Plans?

sickmomma

by Jenny Erwin from United Christian Homeschoolers Upstate - Wednesdays Words of Encouragement: May 'He' Get All The GloryFound this through Ladies Against Feminism and Be Not Weary websites. This sounds so very much like the stories of many of us Quiverfull walk-away moms that it's frightening. The difference is that she's still at that place where she cannot admit her own chosen religious lifestyle is causing her great physical harm. I hope she makes the connection soon and does what she needs to do to heal her body. Any life style that is destroying your body cannot be healthy for anyone, it sure doesn't benefit  anyone in the family, it makes it nearly impossible to do the things … [Read more...]
