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." Marriage isn't alway … [Read more...]

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Get Up AgainWhile this isn't necessarily bad advice in and of itself, knowing that Nancy is referring to pushing yourself beyond the limit as a quiverful momma makes this seem almost cruel.

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...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Backpedaling Furiously From Vision Forum?

Crossing the line in the sand to build insane sand castles

Quoted from Jennifer McBride's blog Noble Womanhood - The Truth, The Whole Truth and Nothing But The Truth: A Follow Up Response to Michael FarrisI know the news of HSLDA distancing its self from patriarchy is old news at this point, but this is one of the few blogs I've seen in the Quiverfull/Evangelical/Patriarchy sphere that has spoken out against Farris. Jennifer is quoting Michael Farris of HSLDA from his statement distancing HSLDA from patriarchy and Vision Forum. I would recommend reading her entire posting as she seems to be very bent out of shape that Farris dared to deviate from the Vision Forum stance on the place of women. Wonder how many 'True Christians'(tm) are cancelling … [Read more...]
