Quoting Quiverfull: Watching Israel Thrills Debi?

NLQ original image

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy magazine - The Crown of Loving His AppearingEditor's note: We're skipping over Debi Pearl's mentions of Hitler but if you must see her words on Hitler and the Jews it is up at the above link. This reads like vicarious martyrbating for End Times along with her usual put-downs on the secular world. One thing about Debi, she sure knows how to throw shade at people who aren't her version of saved.  … [Read more...]

talkingphone

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideA new chapter brings a new topic: Knowledge according to Debi Pearl.  "Moral to the Story: Knowledge can save your life." "A Caution: Shrugging off learning can be devastating." Are we talking "don't eat wild mushrooms"?  Yet another cryptic beginning to a chapter by Debi. "Married life is not all romance and passion - maybe 5 percent. The rest of your time is devoted to the routine of living.  There will be unexpected trials and burdens that will catch you and your sweetie totally by surprise.  Whether your family, not to mention your passion, survives life's curveballs depend on knowledge....yours."

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Express Displeasure To Your Child?

scolding

by Michael Pearl from No Greater Joy - Six Ways Parents Destroy Their Children Without Trying It is a vicious cycle. A child’s bad behavior provokes looks of displeasure and looks of displeasure provoke bad attitudes leading to bad behavior. I have said it so many times. If you cannot train your children to do as they ought, it is far better to lower your standards and enjoy them as they are than to allow your looks of displeasure to become the norm. A kid may grow up to be undisciplined and self-willed, but there is no reason to add to it a feeling of being unloved and unable to please. … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: The Priest Part 4

little snappy

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideIn the last installment on the Priestly Man, Debi makes marriage sound nice.  Her advice is actually pretty good in this section."Your Priestly Mr. Steady will not expect you to cook, clean and serve him, but he might enjoy being in the kitchen cooking with you. " *looks around for the horsemen of the Apocalypse* A husband who won't expect his wife to be a domestic servant? A man who likes to cook?  Will the wonders never cease? Welcome to the 20th century, Debi.  Perhaps you'd like to join the rest of us in the 21st century?  Egalitarianism is a good deal for both parties."If he does, and if you are a perfectionist, unhap … [Read more...]
