Rhaego_2x10

by Vaughn Ohlman from True Love Doesn't Wait, Really - Always Being OpenRecently I have had some discussions about  a doctrine often called full quiver. I am ‘full quiver’ and I believe the doctrine to be an integral part of marriage, to the extent we included it in our betrothal covenant for my oldest son and his wife.

by Joe Sands cross posted from his blog Incongruous CircumspectionSo, I want to tell you a story. A story of hope. A story of looking back in life and weeping. Looking forward and seeing hope for the children of mine, given to me through the wonders of humanity's ability toIt was the summer of 2012. Call Me Maybe swept the United States, captivating the attention of every person below the age of fourteen. The song was dumb. Pointless. Bubble gum pop-y.

covenant

by Doug Wilson of Blog and Mablog Children are a blessing. Scripture speaks that way, and so should we. But children are a blessing in the covenant. The cup of blessing at the Lord’s Supper is a blessing — it is called the cup of blessing.

by Vaughn Ohlman cross posted from his blog True Love Doesn't WaitWell, another set of questions from No Longer Quivering.

sacrifice
