Quoting Quiverfull: Part 2 – Motherhood is a Battlefield?

by Julie Neils from Ungrind – Warrior MamaEditor's note: More bad battle metaphors and self-congratulatory words. Yes, there's nothing wrong with choosing to be a stay at home mom, but don't deny others that option to choose and don't pretend you being a stay at home mother is some sort of culture warrior stance. It's just a choice, your choice. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Motherhood is a Battlefield?

by Julie Neils from Ungrind - Warrior MamaEditor's note: Why is everything a spiritual struggle for Quiverfull women?  I raised my children relatively easily without all this inner angst and warrior on a battlefield struggling that many Quiverfull mothers express. Motherhood isn't all roses and champagne but neither is it a battlefield, unless you deliberately make it one. How many generations of mothers have raised children without it being a battlefield? Plus who are all these nasty cruel people saying hateful things to children? … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Large Families Passed Over?

by Adeye Salem from No Greater Joy Mom - The Silent HurtEditor's note: This is something I've seen in churches, even quiverfull ones, where families with large numbers of children, special needs or not, aren't invited to events or social happenings. While it's bound to be hurtful is it realistic to expect every event or place to make special accommodations for a large quiverfull family if it means inconveniencing the majority of people there? Thoughts on this? … [Read more...]

You Probably Know a Quiverfull Family – This Anti-Woman Christian Cult is Everywhere

by NLQ founder Vyckie Garrison originally posted at Raw Story There’s been some speculation recently about whether the Willis Family, the musically-talented mega-family of 14 featured on TLC’s creatively-titled reality TV show, “The Willis Family,” follows the Quiverfull movement. Toby and Brenda Willis, along with their one dozen lovely children, appear strikingly similar to TLC’s scandal-ridden Duggar Family … only with considerably more talent and rather less legalism. Like JimBob and Michelle, the Christian couple follows most, but not all of the lifestyle particulars promoted and practiced by Quiverfull families based on their “biblical worldview.” … [Read more...]

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - Are We Willing?Editor's note: One thing you can count on is that Nancy pushes the fear and guilt button repeatedly in most of her posts.

All I'm seeing is some world class fear mongering. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: You Are Not Holy Enough?

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - What's Your Norm?Editor's note: One of Nancy's most constant themes is 'You are not doing it right!' She tries to invoke guilt, fear and panic among her followers by pretending no one but her is Godly enough. It is not a very emotionally healthy thing to walk around in a constant state of fear and guilt. … [Read more...]
