by Charlotte Mackenzie from Girl Defined - A Love Story in the MindEditor's note: This illustrates a lot of the danger of buying the Quiverfull Evangelical theology that every time you are even attracted to someone of the opposite sex you give away pieces of your heart. There's a great deal of self-guilt and emotional flagellation in this piece. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Brothers As Matchmakers Pre Screening Dudes So Dad Doesn’t Have To?

quotingquiverfull

by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy - Need a Spouse...ANYONE?Editor's note: So now Debi's adding another layer that a potential spouse for a daughter must go through, the brothers. In one breath she decries the 'current complicated courtship hoops' that young men must go through to get to know a young woman and in the next breath adds this new complication of brothers. Why is it that things which are uncomplicated, simple and natural out in the world of unsaved heathens take on a convoluted crazy form in Evangelical Quiverfull? It's exhausting just thinking about it. … [Read more...]

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Kids and Cows CollideI made a blogger decision to skip Chapter 14.  It's a story about how Sheila and Shad Williams saved their marriage through Jesus.  The problem?  First, their marriage wasn't in (much) trouble.  Second, they were married at some point before 1975.Yup.  Debi has started padding the book with stories from her contemporaries rather than using her shaky creative writing skills. … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: Part 1 – Cinderella

Preparing

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideI've found two different types of toxic views in reading CP literature. The more common toxicity is "Do this or really bad things will happen to you!" Debi has given us plenty of these examples so far. This chapter is a different type of toxic. This is the "Do this and life will be magical!" toxicity.Personally, I think the second type is more pernicious than the first. With the first, once you've done the forbidden action, you can figure out pretty quickly if the predicted bad outcome happens. The second type, though, is hard to disprove because life isn't always magical. … [Read more...]
