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.

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.

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.
