Quoting Quiverfull: Any Teaching Woman Not Lori Alexander is a Jezebel?

by Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife - The Jezebels Among UsEditor's note: I am starting to wonder if Ms. Alexander is going into NLQ to read daily because the last three or four postings of hers sound very much like responses to something posted earlier than week. Example: Remember the long series last week when her idol Debi Pearl explained her thoughts on Jezebel women? This is the result. … [Read more...]

Questioning the Pearls: Never Have Needs!

For well over a year we’ve been running a second Answering ‘Preparing To Be A Help Meet’ on Sundays, filled with questions by young ladies trying to get ready for marriage. Since we’ve run through many of the questions on their site it’s time to shift Sundays to something else, like perhaps examining the cornucopia of probably fake emails and questions that Michael and Debi Pearl of No Greater Joy post on their website and the possibly poisonous answers they give. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: New Year Resolutions?

by Megan Van Vuren of No Greater Joy - Happy New Year From No Greater JoyEditor's note: So far there's been no news of why Debi Pearl of NGJ was publicly calling for the deaths of those that appose them. Just this little bit about the kinds of New Year resolutions you should make as a family. What resolutions did you make this year or last year and how did that work out for you? Last year I resolved to make my needs known, forcefully if necessary, in regards to my long struggle with asthma. There were mixed results, some folks in my life respected what I had to say and honored my requests. Others decided to be offended that I'd stood up for myself. This year's resolution is the live my … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: Part 1 – Cinderella

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...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: Part 4 – Pie in the Sky

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideIn this portion, Debi attempts to wrap up the chapter by being very clear that she's as shaky on modern technology as she is on theology, homeschooling, child development and communication skills. When you get to know someone online it is like getting to know a character in a fiction novel. That character is the product of creative writing. When a young man writes to girls, you can be sure of one thing: he is doing his very best to make a good impression. … [Read more...]
