Quoting Quiverfull: A Truly Submissive Heart For Marriage?

by Matthew Chapman - Thoughts on Betrothal (15 Years Later) Many Christian homeschooling homes, on the other hand, seem to provide young women with a more natural context in which to come forth—that is, if the parents have an eye for this and their time is used wisely.

by Zsuzsanna Anderson, wife of pastor Steven L Anderson from her blog Are They All Yours? -Some Exciting Changes(Editorial note: Check out the oh so Christian and loving t-shirt worn by her husband in the first photo in the original posting.
