Not Quoting Quiverfull: Leave Ma Duggar Alone!

peoplemag

by Suzanne TitkemeyerFound this on NLQ founder Vyckie Garrison's Facebook feed this morning. Chicago Now blogger Sue Fitzpatrick has just published one of the most head-in-the-sand defending TLC's show "19 Kids & Counting" and the Duggar family articles ever published outside of the world of Quiverfull Christianity. For some reason this article is published under the "Unemployment Stories" section of Chicago Now, which is a little odd. I think we can all guess what the author is doing while unemployed, watching those all day all night marathons of "19 Kids & Counting". … [Read more...]

Revisiting Steadfast Daughters in a Quivering World Part 5 – Confessions of a Quiverfull Hero

quivering-daughters

[Note: this series is dedicated to Quivering Daughters by the former-Quiverfull moms at No Longer Quivering.]by Daisy I was only 19 when I arrived at Christianity’s door, bruised and highly impressionable and, because of my family situation, determined to do a better job of sorting out my life than my parents had done. Victims of abuse in their own homes, my parents had learned very early to dissociate from their emotions. Our home was an emotionally sterile one and, although I know now that this is not true, as as child I believed my parents did not love me. I decided that when *I* had kids, if they grew up knowing nothing else, they would know for sure that I loved them more than bre … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Unmarried Stay Poor?

prenuptial-agreements-620x412

Ladies Against Feminism has republished a piece from the Mercador by Nicole King called Marriage linked to income increase. If I'm reading this right it sounds like LAF and the original author are saying that a) get married to the first living breathing man with prospects or education to avoid poverty and b) dooming non-white women to poverty by the statistics used by the Pew Research Center and the New York Times. Classy, LAF, so so classy.. … [Read more...]

When Church Hurts: Part 5

scienceoftruth

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsFor a few years, I had the privilege of serving in my church in several ways. I took classes, my husband and I took care of a significant portion of the landscape (which had been sorely neglected) – creating sacred spaces for people to find quiet time with the Lord, and I assisted with preparing food for Sunday morning fellowship. I also had the opportunity to teach classes over our final year there. … [Read more...]

When Church Hurts Part 4

blacksheep

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsDuring all of these years, I would come to church, sit four or five rows from the pulpit, right on the center aisle, and listen to Elliot and others preach grace, forgiveness, reconciliation, and restoration. Elliot preached and preached. I wept and wept openly. I could not sing. I could not so much as close my eyes in prayer. I could not stand for the blessing at the end of the service. I knew that no matter how much Elliot preached those words to everyone else in the congregation, they were not for me. And I would email him and tell him as much. Without response. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You Can Be Replaced in Everything But the Home?

replacements

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - No One Can Replace You Dear mother, can I ask you what voices you are listening to? There are so many voices in this world, all vying for preeminence in your mind.

Voices tempt you to get involved in more and more things that take your time away from your home and family.God has innately put in you what He wants you to do. Listen to your heart, dear mother. Listen to God's voice. You are needed for your children. No one else will ever love and care for your children like you do. No one else will ever be sensitive to their … [Read more...]
