Quoting Quiverfull: Part 4 – Questioning Your Husband Destroys Your Marriage?

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy – Questions a Wife Can Ask to Tear Her House DownEditor's note: Debi offers no explanation on how these last two questions affect the husband. One isn't even something you'd say to your husband, but to a friend. No matter what Debi claims it's always better to just calmly rationally discuss issues with your spouse and everyone needs friends to share with in tough times! If your marriage is so fragile and paper thin that these questions can kill it then you're not really having much of a marriage in the first place! … [Read more...]

“Lies Women Believe” Review: 193 – 214

by Samantha Field cross posted from her blog Samantha P FieldI didn’t think it would be possible to be happy about writing another segment of my Lies Women Believe review, but it is 100x better than dealing with being hacked. I’m pretty sure we’re all good for now, and I am crossing my fingers that never happens again.This week is Nancy’s chapter on emotions, and part of me just wants to refer you to the How to Win Over Depression review, because it covers a lot of the same ground. But, she throws in her own twists, so let’s tackle them.The first problem is the gender segregation: … [Read more...]

“Lies Women Believe” Review: 63 – 90

by Samantha Field cross posted from  her blog Samantha P Field.comFair warning: today’s post is a little long. Because of that, I’ve decided to break today’s review up into the same sections that Nancy divides this chapter– “Lies Women Believe About Themselves”. Eve’s Diary These diary entries are supposed to reflect in some way the similarities between this fictional Eve and modern women, especially concerning the “lies we believe,” so I wondered if Nancy was ever going to address one particular statement Eve makes in this entry: I don’t know if [Adam will] ever trust me again. In a way, I can’t blame him. I’ve really wrecked his life. I feel so stupid. Adam just doesn’t understand … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why is a Man’s Infidelity Always The Wife’s Fault?

This is a new series we have started running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.One of the sadder things that has happened after Josh Duggar's infidelity was exposed is the number of Christians expressing the idea that a wife is always responsible when the husband has sex with someone else during their marriage. It's an idea that has been mentioned even in the mainstream media, that poor heartbroken betrayed Anna Duggar is going to be blaming herself and it's likely the entire family will blame her. Like she doesn't have enough trauma and pain in her life this unBiblical theology point is going to add to that. It's already … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Daycare Is A Counterfeit Mothering?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Brass Instead of GoldEditor's note: Nancy does the blaming shaming guilting thing she's so good at it leading to her stating that using daycare (and the unspoken shame of working a job) isn't embracing our Biblical roles as mothers. She doesn't answer why she didn't embrace her motherhood role when she adopted those children from Africa. I guess her words only work if you're a white Evangelical Christian women having your own children. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Kids Will Be Obese If You Work Outside The Home?

by Laura Keynes from Mercator.net and The Conservative Woman as quoted by Ladies Against Feminism - Stay At Home Mums vs Super Sized KidsEditor's note: You have to hand it to the LAF crew, they know exactly how to take an article that might just have a grain of common sense or be rather sensible advice and twist the content to fear monger to their readers. This is more of that even if the original author is calling for government support so that mothers don't have to go out and work. Having mother at home isn't going to magically lead to better eating choices for the children either. It takes a sustained commitment by the entire family to make that happen. Plus it would help if there … [Read more...]
