by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - Women Wanting to Do What is Right in Their Own EyesEditor's note: Flipping out over yoga pants?

by Zsuzsanna Anderson of Are They All Yours?!? - Here or There?Editor's note: Now Zsuzsanna is claiming that keeping your girls homeschooled prevents out of wedlock pregnancies and molestation.  All of which is laughable if you look at the many times it's emerged that there are patriarchs that rape their daughters and sons, like Josh Duggar, that molest their sisters in the CPM.

Recognizing Pervasive, Poisonous Power in Marriage

by Virginia Knowles cross posted from her blog Watch The Shepherd “There are two kinds of power. One kills the spirit. The other nourishes the spirit. The first is Power Over. The other is Personal Power. Power Over shows up as control and dominance. Personal Power shows up as mutuality and co-creation.

by Michael Pearl from No Greater joy - Twelve Year Old MolesterEditor's note: A mother writes in about the molestation of her friend's child by another child and Michael says do not report this to law enforcement?
