NLQ original image

by Adeye from her blog No Greater Joy Mom - Life Changing News From the SalemsEditor's note: Adeye, mother to more than one adopted special needs child who is preparing for an embryo transfer of four frozen embryos from a batch that has resulted in profoundly special needs children has a new project - creating homes in South Africa for that country's special needs orphans. While I think starting up homes for desperately needy orphans is a noble thing, something about this smacks of child hording on a grand scale or attention-seeking behavior on the part of the author.

Mary Pride denies founding the Quiverfull movement?

by Vyckie Garrison (Editor's Note: This was originally published on NLQ back around three or four years ago.

Quoting Quiverfull: Mary Pride Marginalized by Patriarchy?

marginalized

by Karen Campbell from her blog That MomMary Pride was one of the first leaders in the modern homeschooling movement. Her book The Way Home was a powerful rebuttal of the radical feminist agenda and she minced no words as she made an appeal for rejecting all sorts of sacred cows. Mary was outspoken and certainly no model of the perfect patriarch wife and ruffled lots of male feathers. One of my fondest memories of homeschooling in the early days (nearly 30 years ago now) is of a conference in the St. Louis area with Gregg Harris, Michael Farris, and Mary … [Read more...]

News: Duggars Dealing With Bill Gothard Fallout

jessaseawald

Jezebel.Com has written a horribly funny but thought-provoking  piece on the changes through the years in the Duggar family along with how they are answering the criticisms for following Bill "Grabby Hands" Gothard - How are the Duggars dealing with the Gothard Sex Scandal?So, what follows may be the greatest Duggar based conspiracy theory that you've read this month. Ok, it's not that great but it's a theory. Now, it is well known among Gothard's that the kind of crunchy, curly home-permed hair favored by Michelle and the clan in the early season is based on preferences of Gothard, who loved long, wavy womanly hair and damn the woman who does not possess sacred this crown. Now it may … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Purpose of Children?

childrenplaying

by Kelly Crawford from her blog Generation Cedar - The Purpose of Children (They Are Not For Us - And They Are) Children are not given to us so they can win beauty pageants, or because they’re cute. They’re not even to make us happy, though that is a fantastic by-product. Children are given to us as God’s very heritage, to propagate the gospel, to take a vital part in the Great Commission, to be part of the picture of the gospel, as representing the fruitfulness of the Bride and the Groom, to contend with the enemies of the cross. … [Read more...]
