Quoting Quiverfull: Modesty to be ‘Modest’ or be Different?

by Melissa of Progressive Quiverfull - Reason For The SeasonEditor's note: This is a blogger that only started blogging in December and is a very recent convert to the Quiverfull lifestyle. She's trying to claim she's doing it right and most others are just too fundy. I was thinking yesterday about the reasons that people give for dressing modestly after getting some dirty looks and mumbled 'immodest' pushback while being out running errands dressed in boots, leggings, a long tunic and a knee length sweater vest. It was someone I used to be friends with when I was QF. She wore a jean skirt that fell exactly between her knees and ankles, a sweater and flats. She looked miserable and was … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Fear or Pride – Your Choice?

Sproul Jr. from  Highland Ministries - They Labor In Vain, Or a Funny Thing Happened While I Preached My Daughter's Wedding Just a few days ago I was privileged to be able to preach at a rather significant occasion, the wedding ceremony of my first-born. Darby was, like her mother, not just a beautiful and radiant bride, but a diligent, faithful laborer in bringing the event together. When I told her I would like to preach from Psalm 127 I could tell she was a smidge reluctant to give her approval. Perhaps she feared that I would chasten her and her new husband to remember that children are a blessing from the Lord, and I wanted grandbabies, and soon. Perhaps she feared that I … [Read more...]

Bad, Evil Psychology Helped Me

by LatebloomerGrowing up, I heard a lot of scoffing at psychology in my family, homeschooling community, and fundamentalist church.  In those circles, the study and application of psychology represented a worthless human attempt to feel happier apart from God and become better without the guidance of the Bible.   The anti-psychology sentiment was so strong that even building kids' self-confidence and self-esteem was derided as a "worldly" goal.  There was too much "self" in the name.  Real True Christian children were to be obedient and humble instead.Looking back, I definitely had the obedience thing handled; in fact, I cannot remember ever purposefully disobeying my parents, even in … [Read more...]
