world

by R.L. Stollar of HARO and Homeschoolers Anonymous on the recent article in World Magazine on 'The Homeschool Debate' August 22, 2014 Statement by the Board of Homeschool Alumni Reaching Out: We are grateful to both WORLD Magazine and Daniel James Devine for the opportunity to be interviewed for their recent “Homeschool debate” article. Abuse and neglect in homeschooling are serious and pressing issues that need to be addressed for both the sake of children and alumni as well as the health of the homeschooling movement in general. There has been a severe lack of coverage of abuse and neglect in homeschooling by Christian news sources. We commend WORLD and Mr. Devine for shedding some ligh … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Rights or Choice of Your Own?

choosing

by Oswald Chambers from his book "My Utmost For His Highest"Found in the Above Rubies archive in an article 'Can God Provide? My Best Investment' used as rationalization to not use 9 years of college outside of the home. The writer sacrificed her education to be a stay at home homeschooling mother most of the time. "...if you are living the life of faith you will exercise your right to waive your rights, and let God choose for you." Is choosing to do something else after investing that much time, effort and money in your education letting God choose for you or are you choosing? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Never Tell Others Anything ‘Not Nice’ About Your Husband?

shutyourmouth

by Erin Harrison from No Greater Joy magazine - Virtuous ConversationTalking bad about our husbands to others can spoil his reputation among the brethren. When a wife unloads to friends about how unreasonable or controlling he is, it may make her feel better for the moment, but it will spoil his good name for a long time to come. I have had two sisters in Christ continually cry to me about how horrible their husbands treated them. One wife would call me in desperation, telling me that she could not take his controlling nature any longer. She felt she was not allowed to go anywhere or do anything but serve him. It did not matter that she had talents and dreams. She was forced to set her … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Do It For The Menfolks?

adventurous

by Anna Sophia Botkin of Visionary Daughters and reposted at Ladies Against Feminism - What is Okay For a Girl to Do? from their new book/audio message 'Adventurous Femininity'As women we see our lives in terms of helping men with the challenges, quests, wars, and adventures. We need to be very careful that we don’t pursue a brand of femininity that is so obsessed with it’s own girliness, that it can’t get it’s hands dirty with real dominion.  Feminism, there is a lot more to that than women who dress up in pinstriped power suits and do man’s work. Essentially feminism is the desire to be autonomous. It’s the desire to be independent from a man and out from under his authority and this … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: What’s He Doing Watching Nude Reality Shows?

"Naked and Afraid" plus extremely pixelated. Is this really 'erotic' to anyone?

by Tony Reinke at Ladies Against Feminism  and at Desiring God - What We Learn From Nude Reality TVWe laugh when little children run down the neighborhood sidewalk unclothed, chased by an embarrassed and apologetic parent. There’s a funny innocence to it in the life of a child who, to some degree, is ignorant of sin. In the same way, when men and women show themselves nude in public, they act like children, like ignorant children dumb to the fires of sexual lust that fuel the most unspeakable crimes in this world. Nobody can be protected from this. Even within the safe haven of a church will arise men who “have eyes full of adultery, insatiable for sin” (2 Peter 2:14). To stoke the flame … [Read more...]
