by Aletha cross posted from her blog Yllom Mormonpp 48-50Alrighty. I hope everyone is doing well. I'm really excited for this post, because Michael lets us play a game! I'm calling it the Sexist Stereotype Game, because it shows how sexist we really are. Let's jump right in, shall we? Text is in purple.I Need Her Sensitivity I need her companionship, mercy, and grace. The nature of man is found in the husband and wife's combination. God Adam "Male and female", It is as if one body and soul couldn't contain and express the fullness of God, so the Creator divided his attributes, grouping similar traits, putting them into two genders.

Quoting Quiverfull: Today’s Men & Women?

adameve

by Owen Strachan of Desiring God in the Introduction for John Piper's new book "Good: The Joy of Christian Manhood and Womanhood" from pages 19 to 20.

I’d stopped wearing pants or cutting my hair by the end of the first year, following my mother’s lead. The last pair of pants she wore were a lovely pair of wide-leg trousers with a sheer lace overlay; they could pass for a skirt until she took a step. She wore them to church, then threw them away – she felt “convicted” for wearing a man’s garment. She threw away her makeup, too, keeping only a sheer moisturizing lip gloss as a token of her past.I liked my new dresses, and I liked the long hair slowly descended across my shoulders. I’ … [Read more...]
