Quoting Quiverfull: Well-Behaved Women?

Quotes1-300x250 (2)

From The Prairie Muffin Manifesto The women who will have the greatest impact on the world, those who will have the greatest influence on history, are those "well-behaved" women who faithfully serve God in their daily lives, seeking His approval rather than the world's admiration.

Quoting Quiverfull: Modestly Immodest?

Quotes1-300x250
