Quoting Quiverfull: No Negative Thoughts or Words Allowed?

by Kristin Eason from Nancy Campbell's Above Rubies - A House or a Home?Editor's note: She's been waiting to 'make a home' for a long time considering the author's eldest child is 15 years old, so no wonder she's having to tell herself not to be bitter and negative. One idea here that she doesn't explore is not a bad one - that it does not matter if you live in a rental house, apartment, trailer, hut, yurt, duplex or mansion. The structure does not matter because anywhere you are can be a 'home'. Instead the author chooses to focus on controlling your thoughts and words instead of simply being grateful for what you do have. She makes it all about attitude in a very wrong and controlling … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Education Only to Bring Children to God?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - A Good QuestionEditor's note: Of course there's no mention of the real reason to assure your children are educated: to produce well-rounded adults fully capable of participating in society and to make sure they have marketable skills they can use to support themselves in the future. While I have no problem with people using their education to help others it seems a bit childish and naive to state that the main goal is to make them love God more. Education does not actually work like that. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You Blaspheme When You Work Outside of the Home?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - The Beautiful LifestyleEditor's note: So now Nancy is taking her theology to a scary strange place. She claims if you do not rejoice in staying home and being the most perfect, happy, joyous wife and mother while keeping your home perfect then you are blaspheming against God. Nancy does not provide any real scriptures to support this, acting like everyone should just KNOW this is God's intent for women.f … [Read more...]

Answering Quiverfull: Nancy Campbell’s “Vision” for Her Children and Grandchildren

by Bruce Gerencser cross posted from his blog The Life and Times of Bruce GerencserAccording to the Above Rubies website, Nancy Campbell is an “internationally known author, speaker, and authority on Biblical Motherhood and Family.” Campbell preaches the old-time Fundamentalist  gospel of patriarchy — a world in which women marry, obey their husbands, bear lots of children, and keep the home.

Quoting Quiverfull: Gardening is Super-Godly!?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Gardens Are Precious!Editor's note: Nancy's back on the subject of gardens being oh so Godly again. This gardening thing is a new wrinkle in her theology, the first year she's made such a big deal out of planting a garden. She apparently thinks that buying vegetables and fruit from the super market or farmers market isn't right either. Wonder what is driving all this drivel about gardens this year? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Mothering For Eternity?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Look Beyond TodayEditor's note: As time goes on Nancy's messages on the effect of motherhood on all of history become ever more hysterical and filled with hyperbole. Is her influence slipping so much among her small sphere that she must increase her messages to a fevered frenzied fake pitch? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: What is the ‘Proverbs 31 Woman’?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Let's Get The True PictureEditor's note: Nancy willfully misinterprets the Bible yet again. I don't know what version she's reading but the Proverb 31 Woman does not read like some simpering sap staying home all day homeschooling her kids and having no opinions or creative ways to add to the family finances. And "Watchwoman"? That is a new one on me. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Stay Home or God Will Dry Up Your Womb?

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - MisplacedEditor's note: There is so much fear mongering and discouraging threats in this piece that I had a hard time figuring which horrible idea to use as the title. One of the worse pieces I've seen from this ministry with threats about what God will do and how Satan will steal away your children away if you work outside of the home. A road map for making mothers very fearful. Oh, and Nancy is also doing her less than stellar Biblical word interpretations as well. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Your Mothering Effects Eternity!?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Six Generations!Editor's note: It's always interesting how Nancy always manages to extrapolate out every silly thing you do as having eternal consequences and add 'must dos' to women's roles as wives and mothers. While mothering does have long term effects, both good and bad, I'm not sure I buy her you are mothering for eternity talk here. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Stay Sweet or Else?

by Kim Newsome from Nancy Campbell's Above Rubies - A Quarrelsome WifeEditor's note: This is just toxic! Toxic thinking, toxic blaming, toxic theology. Another 'Shut up woman!' moment. What is it about men in the world of Quiverfull that every single bit of less than gushing words by their wives is considered 'quarrelsome'? … [Read more...]
