grinch

by Jay Younts of Shepherd Press - Avoiding Disappoint Christmas morningNot getting the gift that is wanted can happen for several reasons. The budget dictates trips to Walmart instead of the mall.

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog - Bitterness and the Unsubmissive Wife But if every time we get to such a statement of what a wife’s fundamental lack of a submissive spirit might be doing in her relationship to her husband we get a histrionic reaction, then perhaps we are seeing a refusal on the part of certain women to see women as true moral agents.

Poor Jimmy Harper in "Reefer Madness" after opening that "Door of Darkness"

by Tim Price of Chalcedon Presbyterian Church posted at Ladies Against Feminism - The Door of Darkness When boys enter into puberty, they discover a door within themselves that has a sign saying, “DO NOT ENTER!” It is the door of sexual exploration and it has been presented to them by their new-found hormones.

by Peter Bradrick from his Facebook The past decade of my life has been defined by my close relationship with my mentor and former spiritual father. Those who know me recognize my longstanding, fierce commitment to his family, his work, and his legacy. As soon as I caught wind of what was going on, I became very involved in working towards fulfilling the duties of friendship and brotherhood – to confront a man who has been like a father to me for a third of my life and plead with him to truthfully confess, and to genuinely take responsibility for longstanding betrayal of everything we had fought together for with the hope of ultimate restoration. … [Read more...]

by Natalie Klejwa of Visionary Womanhood - Thinking About Vision Forum I’m sad about what has happened, but I’m not shocked. It hasn’t rocked my world. Not even a little.
