Quoting Quiverfull: Abandoning Their Souls?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Strong in Spirit Let's pray, "Oh Father, I don't want my soul to be shallow. I want it to be satiated and filled with wisdom from your Word and the revelation of the Holy Spirit. I want to be a filler of my children's souls, too.

Please prick me in my heart when I am prone to do this. I don't want them to only have healthy bodies, and yet starved spirits. I want them to grow strong and mighty in the Lord. Amen." … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Be a Light?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - One of the Greatest What do you think is one of the greatest things we should have in our homes? I'd love to hear your response. I think it is the light of God.

Therefore, if Christ dwells in you, He wants you to light up your home with His light.Mothers certainly need to be filled with the light of God. The light of God in you exposes all darkness, danger, … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Personal Agency For Women?

The Bible says a woman should strive to have a meek and quiet spirit…” … [Read more...]

For instance, even though wiki and some Internet blogs report that we are part of the Quiver Full movement, we are not. We are simply Bible-believing Christians who desire to follow God's Word and apply it to our lives. God says children are a gift and a blessing and we believe it! QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the … [Read more...]
