Revisiting Steadfast Daughters in a Quivering World Part 5 – Confessions of a Quiverfull Hero

quivering-daughters

[Note: this series is dedicated to Quivering Daughters by the former-Quiverfull moms at No Longer Quivering.]by Daisy I was only 19 when I arrived at Christianity’s door, bruised and highly impressionable and, because of my family situation, determined to do a better job of sorting out my life than my parents had done. Victims of abuse in their own homes, my parents had learned very early to dissociate from their emotions. Our home was an emotionally sterile one and, although I know now that this is not true, as as child I believed my parents did not love me. I decided that when *I* had kids, if they grew up knowing nothing else, they would know for sure that I loved them more than bre … [Read more...]

by Luna Lindsay, author of "Recovering Agency: Lifting the Veil of Mormon Mind Control" - a book on recovery from high demand religious cults that exposes the mind tricks and thought control that allows these religions to flourish in our modern times. Read a review of her book at The Freethinker written by M.

Quoting Quiverfull: Be a Light?

light

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - One of the Greatest What do you think is one of the greatest things we should have in our homes? I'd love to hear your response. I think it is the light of God.

He confessed in John 9:5: "As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world."He is no longer physically in the world, but now He lights the world by dwelling in us. Therefore, if Christ dwells in you, He wants you to light up your home with His light.Mothers certainly need to be filled with the light of God. The light of God in you exposes all darkness, danger, … [Read more...]

zeal

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies  -  Put Zeal Into Your Mothering Today It's difficult to accomplish anything very powerful when you are apathetic about it, isn't it? Many things can only be accomplished by the "zeal of the Lord." Isaiah 9:7 tells us that "Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end." How is this going to be accomplished? The rest of the Scripture says, "The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this." It is the passion and zeal of God that will perform this wonderful promise.When Jesus beheld what was happening in the temple which was called "The House of Prayer" he didn't stand by indifferently. He rose up in righteous indignation and drove th … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Motherhood is Servanthood?

When you Google 'Mother Servant' you get images of Mother Theresa and other nuns and priests serving the poor. Somehow I don't think this is what Nancy Campbell had in mind.

by Nancy Campbell at Above Rubies - To Serve or Not to Serve I have been thinking about our great role of "serving" in motherhood. As a young mother I remember feeling "I'm just a jolly servant around this place."
