Quoting Quiverfull: You Will Wilt If You Do Not Embrace Motherhood Right Now?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Which One Are You? Wilting, Surviving or Flourishing?Editor's note: More pushing of the old guilt buttons and making any woman that isn't overjoyed at being a housewife and a mother of many feel guilty as can be. It's what Nancy specializes in, at least when she's not hiding what happened to her African adoptees. Happy, Happy, Happy or you get the hose! … [Read more...]

Being a Mom is Hard

mari

by Mari cross posted from her blog Mari's MusesEditor's note: Posting this because it points out something obvious that the Quiverfull world loves to downplay. Not everyone is ready, equipped, suited, or should be a mother. It's hard work and it's not for everyone. True wisdom is knowing your own capabilities.Being a mom is hard.I know this because, from time to time, my friends ask me to care for their children while they’re away, and I know, from experience, that I don’t have what it takes. … [Read more...]

VNM: Dealing With The Leagcy Of Agent Orange In Vietnam

by Kristen Rosser cross posted from her blog Wordgazer's WordsIt's a mantra that I've heard repeated many times, especially in Christian circles.  "A good mother stays home full-time.  Don't let your children be raised by strangers!" "Raised by strangers."  What mom would want that for her kids?  So I believed, as a young Christian married woman, that of course God would provide a way for me to not work outside the home.  After all, staying home with my kids full-time was what I wanted as a young mother, right?  I mean, if I were really following God's will for my life, this was what I should want.  And this was obviously what was best both for me and for my children, right?  I mean, if … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Isn’t It Cruel To Make Barren Women Crave Babies?

Yes, Nancy went there and is speaking well of Catholic icon Mother Theresa

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies -  All Women Are MothersInteresting that Nancy "I Abandoned My Liberian Adoptees" Campbell is putting every women in the world in the exact same box marked 'Motherhood' and invoking a Catholic icon to do it. Most of the time it seems like the only time the Catholics are mentioned in CPM is when someone wants to toss rocks at them and say they aren't 'real Christians' … [Read more...]
