motherbody

by Matt Walsh from his blog and reposted by Ladies Against Feminism - You don't have to erase every trace of childbirth from your body I don’t know why we’ve come up with this idea that women need to eradicate any hint of motherhood from their bodies after giving birth.This is all part of the anti-child, anti-mother, anti-family, anti-life, anti-fertility obsession that plagues our culture like an infectious spiritual disease.

by Heather Doney cross posted from her blog Becoming WorldlyToday the big American Prospect “Homeschool Apostates” story came out. A number of us have been working with Kathryn Joyce for some time on the issue and so while I only had a short segment in it, an interview on social awkwardness as a formative experience, the piece is the most comprehensive one to exist on this advocacy work I am helping spearhead as of yet, and it really highlights the issues in a way that I find to be deeply meaningful and sincerely hope will help raise awareness and bring about improvement. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: How to Attract a Righteous Guy’s Attention?

naggyman

by The Author (guest post) at Integrity of the Home: Quirks of the Fairer Sex Which Ought Not be So I could be wrong, but I think an idea prevalent in so-called "reformed" circles among you young ladies is this: guys don't notice you all, so you have to look "cute" or act a certain way to get attention. Maybe you'll be at church, or perhaps a nice conference, but you'll stand there and observe (out of the corner of your eye, of course) all us guys bumble around like blind fellows, consumed with our football or movies, never noticing you in all your reformed, youthful splendor. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: A Ministry Head Cheating is a Predictable Cycle?

Quotes1-300x250

by Natalie Klejwa of Visionary Womanhood - Thinking About Vision Forum I’m sad about what has happened, but I’m not shocked. It hasn’t rocked my world. Not even a little. I think that’s because I’ve seen so many good ministries start off – grow – falter in their adolescence – and then crumble. It’s a predictable cycle. So this post is really about perspective. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: A Truly Submissive Heart For Marriage?

Chapmans

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. This is not only true in daughters learning homemaking skills from their mothers, but in the Lord fashioning in them a gentle and quiet spirit. Daughters can also develop a truly submissive heart in how they relate to their parents, and particularly their father, for one day they will have another man with whom they must submissively relate to as their head. … [Read more...]

by Geoff Botkin apologizing for his early comments on Christian Rap music - NCFIC Blog: An Apology "I need to apologize for the unintended offense and confusion of my comments on disobedient cowardice. I certainly do not believe that all of today’s Christian rappers are cowardly. My most sincere apologies go to anyone out there who was hurt by my strong language. While I do hold concerns about the use and misuse of rap, my words were not directed at any particular artist. My greater concern is for the broad cultural conformity and compromise that is not limited to reformed rap." … [Read more...]
