Late Bloomer

anemone

by AJ cross posted from her blog I Am PhoenixThere are a number of life events that I have arrived at quite late in the game. The biggest life event has been marriage. And there are a few milestones in life I have avoided altogether, such as motherhood, even though most females my age have looked forward to and reached this milestone long ago. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Unmarried Stay Poor?

prenuptial-agreements-620x412

Ladies Against Feminism has republished a piece from the Mercador by Nicole King called Marriage linked to income increase. If I'm reading this right it sounds like LAF and the original author are saying that a) get married to the first living breathing man with prospects or education to avoid poverty and b) dooming non-white women to poverty by the statistics used by the Pew Research Center and the New York Times. Classy, LAF, so so classy.. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Respect Your Husband Above All Else?

i respect my husband

from the blog The Respected Husband - Marriage Instructions: Roles and Responsibilities Before we move on to the responsibilities of the husband, I want to end this section by sharing a statement from David Platt, “Your respect for your husband is not based on his performance but is based on God’s call and command in your life as his wife. Revere Christ through submission to your husbands. Respect them. Honor them. Build them up. That’s God’s responsibility for wives. … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be A Help Meet: The Prophet Part 3

preparing

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideLast time, I gathered up all of the general descriptions of Prophet / Visionary Men that Debi sprinkled through Chapter 3.  Now, we get to move on to the specific examples of what life with a Prophet/Visionary Man is like according to Debi."The Prophet type will make a great boyfriend because he will focus totally on his sweetie.  He will be very romantic, giving you flowers and gifts.  If you catch the heart of a Prophet you will be his consuming passion, his greatest challenge, his dream come true. "In other words, the Prophet is in love with being in love with you.  That's not a great foundation for marriage. … [Read more...]

Preparing To Be His Help Meet: Creative Interpretations of the Book of Ruth

preparing

by Mel cross posted from her blog When Cows and Kids CollideAfter Debi finishes twisting Esther from an active woman into a passive girl, Debi turns her attention to Ruth.  In her discussion of the Book of Ruth, Debi pulls a two-fer: Ruth is a passive follower as befits a young girl while Naomi, a wise older woman, gives her great counsel.  In short, Debi uses the story of Ruth to imply that Debi's young, naive readers should follow Debi's ideas unquestioningly.   On a positive note, Debi is blessedly brief on the subject.Away we go! … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Divorce Even if Abused?

brokenvows

by Sam Crabtree at John Piper's Desiring God blog - Until Death Do We Part - For Real Some disapprove, saying that Jesus allows exceptions — that is, he allows divorce in cases of adultery — but a careful reading of Matthew 5:32 shows that adultery does not nullify or overrule what God has joined together. Rather than adultery being a cause for divorce, it is the divorce and remarriage of divorced parties which causes adultery. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Finding Mr. Right

mrright

by Ladies Against Feminism - Advice To Young Ladies - Pick The Right Man A good woman will have no interest in flattering a man’s vanity and a good man will have no interest having his vanity flattered and little interest in those who seek to flatter him. He knows to well that vanity is the enemy of his virtue which comes by way of His duty to God. A good man will not give up his sense of duty for a woman who will so often misrepresent what a good man truly is with her flattery. A good man looks for a woman who … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Independent Women in the Bible?

marytylermoore

by Vaughn Ohlman from his blog True Love Doesn't Wait - Where are all the independent, unmarried women? I have been reading through the Pentateuch (first five books of the Bible), and I just finished Numbers 30. This is the passage that speaks about vows made unto the Lord by the people of God. Making a vow to the Lord is a serious matter, and God takes vows made to Him extremely seriously. Christ Himself even addresses the practice of making vows unto the Lord and castigates the Jews for their foolish vows and even more for their foolish attempts to wriggle out of honoring the vows they had made. [1] … [Read more...]
