zealot

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Mothers With ZealKeep in mind as you read this that Merriam-Webster defines 'Zeal' as 'a strong feeling of interest and enthusiasm that makes someone very eager or determined to do something' and that it's the root word of 'Zealot' - 'a person who has very strong feelings about something (such as religion or politics) and who wants other people to have those feelings' Nancy fits the description of 'Zealot' a little too well.  … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Not Having Babies is Equal to Arguing With God?

womb

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Dare We Argue With God? God's creation of our bodies is perfect, yet it seems that man often thinks he knows better than God.

And, the first time I read these pages this morning, I thought I could agree with a good portion of what he said in the preface, which i … [Read more...]

Was she setting herself up for disappointment? Was she allowing this young man too much freedom with her? The kind of young man we want won’t be trying to get in through the back door: he will be willing to go through the proper channels to claim a … [Read more...]
