Quoting Quiverfull: Two Hours?

Quotes1-300x250

Dousing a Fire

by AJ cross posted from her blog I am PhoenixBack when things just rolled right off me.Why do I often feel so sensitive, defensive and maligned against? Some days, it's like my body is a magnet that draws to itself and magnifies each hurt, each bit of slander, each little judgement I sense may be directed towards me.

shoutout

Back in May of this year we posted the thoughts of Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies Magazine and her followers on what ladies that love their husbands do for their husband to concretely express that love.

Quotes1-300x250
