Fascinating Womanhood Review: Happiness

 by Samantha Fields cross posted from her blog Defeating The Dragons  So, it’s been a little while since we’ve delved into Helen Andelin’s world. We’re about halfway through the book, and we’ve reached the point where we’re going to start seeing a lot more ridiculous statements. On one hand, it makes it easier for me to demonstrate the absurdity of her beliefs– at times, all I’d have to do is quote what she says and even the most die-hard Vision Forum devotee would roll their eyes– but on the other hand, that makes it seem that what Helen’s promoting is so outdated that no one accepts it anymore.  That is, unfortunately, not true. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Opposite Sex Friendships?

by Jonathan Lindvall from the Bold Christian Living Yahoo Group   Do you have any ministry for teens/young people (and their parents) about   leaving a romantic relationship because it wasn't God's time yet, how to leave   that relationship and how to pursue that previous friendship as a "friendship   and sister/brother in Christ" rather than the previous romantic interest? (I   do hope I am clear - please let me know if I am not.) … [Read more...]

ATI’s Bill Gothard Sexually Harrassed ATI Workers?

by CaluluFor the past few days I've been reading through the accounts by ladies who'd worked with Bill Gothard, ATI's founder and venerated head, over at Recovered Grace. They all give very similar versions of their time with Bill, being inappropriately touched, and treated with a creepy flirtatiousness. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Huge Responsibility Weighing On You?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Price of Greatness is Responsibility When a new baby is born and we take this precious life into our arms, we are not only overcome with awe and delight, but the enormity of the task that lies ahead. We are responsibility for keeping this little life alive. We have to nurse, nourish, love, protect, care for and train this child until they one day leave our home. Even then we'll never stop praying for them. Even then, their trials and challenges, are still our concerns. Have you felt this weight of responsibility weighing upon you? It is always there, even in the midst of the joys, isn't it? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Independent Women in the Bible?

by Vaughn Ohlman from his blog True Love Doesn't Wait - Where are all the independent, unmarried women? I have been reading through the Pentateuch (first five books of the Bible), and I just finished Numbers 30. This is the passage that speaks about vows made unto the Lord by the people of God. Making a vow to the Lord is a serious matter, and God takes vows made to Him extremely seriously. Christ Himself even addresses the practice of making vows unto the Lord and castigates the Jews for their foolish vows and even more for their foolish attempts to wriggle out of honoring the vows they had made. [1] … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Putting Off Marriage To Get An Education?

by Kelly Crawford from Generation Cedar - Why We Should Encourage Our Children to Marry Young We could have the talk about the unnecessary hype of college but that would take too long. If we could understand that college may be necessary for highly specialized vocations, but generally, not necessary for a good education and training in most vocations, we would begin the process of demoting the college degree from some idolized status. It is now, especially in our highly technological age, only one of many ways to a higher education, not the least of which is laborious and expensive. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Addicted To Peer Interaction?

by Jonathan Lindvall on the Yahoo Bold Christian Living Group - As many of you know, the Lord has granted me the privilege to encourage a small, but growing number of saints in India to homeschool their children. (My family will be going with me for an extended time of ministry there from December through February.) One father who has just begun homeschooling his daughter wrote me this week with an interesting concern. He subsequently gave me permission to share his note and my response. He wrote: … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Protecting Daughters Most of All?

by Jonathan Lindvall from the Yahoo Bold Christian Living Group Several generations ago, a father's responsibility (and right) to protect his wife and daughters was generally assumed and acknowledged in our legal system. It would have been unthinkable for a woman to be compelled to participate in legal proceedings, without her father's (or in the case of a married woman, husband's) involvement. I understand in many situations women could not even be directly arrested, until permission of their father or husband was acquired. True, a husband or father then became liable for his wife's/daughter's actions. But the principle of Numbers 30 (male protection over women) was honored. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Abortion Targets Reducing Minority Populations?

by Voddie Baucham posted at Ladies Against Feminism - Voddie Baucham on Abortion, Adoption and President Obama It’s beyond acceptable. It’s normalized to even celebrate it so that is a big difference between my life and a lot of lives that don’t even get to begin today…abortion is such a kind word. It’s the annihilation of life and I am grieved by that. I am also grieved the absolute ignorance of many people who are targeted by abortionists. Black women make up around 11% of the population but a third or more of the abortions of black and Hispanic women combined, around a quarter of the population, more than half the abortions. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Joyful Motherhood?

By Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Merry-Hearted Mother God gives a description of mothers in Psalm 113:9. In fact, it is His design and plan for mothers. Do you know the description? He calls them JOYFUL mothers!"Oh my," you retort. "How do you expect me to be joyful when I hardly have time to get one moment for myself? I'm over-work and underpaid! I've got immature and crying little ones around me all day!" Dear mother, … [Read more...]
