Quoting Quiverfull: You Will Wilt If You Do Not Embrace Motherhood Right Now?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - Which One Are You? Wilting, Surviving or Flourishing?Editor's note: More pushing of the old guilt buttons and making any woman that isn't overjoyed at being a housewife and a mother of many feel guilty as can be. It's what Nancy specializes in, at least when she's not hiding what happened to her African adoptees. Happy, Happy, Happy or you get the hose! … [Read more...]

NLQ Question of the Week: Why Live Like You Are In The 1880s?

Questionoftheweek

This is a new series we’re going to start running on Thursdays. Examining some of the questions involving long held Quiverfull theology and life.This week's thoughts and questions involve the Quiverfull lifestyle in the wake of the mess with the Naugler family. Granted, the Naugler family does the entire off-the-grid thing very poorly, unlike most Quiverfull families that go off grid. That still doesn't stop the support of the Quiverfull Homeschooling community for this family. Which brings me to this question - Why is it that the lifestyle of living as close to how our pioneer ancestors lived is upheld as the perfect standard in Quiverfull? Bake your own bread, grow your own food, sew y … [Read more...]

by Suzanne TitkemeyerAnother Mother's Day is almost upon us again and I have questions of all the readers here that left the Evangelical Quiverfull Movement. Do you regret having or trying to have a large number of children? What would you do differently if you did it over? What did you learn? What would you like others to know?Mother's Day can be one of the hardest days of the year for those in or out of the church because of society's insistence that motherhood be presented in a sentimental perfect light, even if you aren't Quiverfull. It's hard to stuff down negative feelings and experiences on a Hallmark manufactured holiday and pretend to a happiness you may not feel. If you are … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Embracing Your Womb & Breasts?

quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - The Blessing of Your WombEditor's note:  I believe that Nancy sometimes recycles posts from years before. I swear I have seen this word for word last year. Plus she doubles down on her ridiculous assertion that 'Woman' comes from 'Womb Man' - which is not true. I'm guessing she's all about blaming any woman who's womb doesn't work right.  Yeah, yeah, we get it Nancy, we should worship our wombs because without them we couldn't fulfill your own personal mandate of growing enough babies to field our own personal sports team. … [Read more...]

Part 2 – Chapter 1: Filling the World to Overflowing – Be Fruitful and Multiply Review

befruitful

NLQ Book Review of Nancy Campbell's 'Be Fruitful and Multiply' by Suzanne TitkemeyerSorry it's taken this long to get to the end of the first chapter but every day I saw this book sitting on the edge of my desk, would stare at it and mutter 'um, no.'Let's get started. Nancy starts this section by saying that everything we're heard or read about the world's overpopulation problem is a bunch of malarky. Yet she offers no studies, no facts or figures and no scientific basis at all. Just the Bible. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Easier Having Lots of Kids?

quotingquiverfull

by Chaunie Brusie from Babble (how fitting!) - 10 Things Moms of Many Want You to KnowEditor's note: So this isn't exactly from a fundamentalist quiverfull momma perspective, more from someone not part of the religious constant child bearing world that wants to think having four children is the same as the nineteen kids in the Duggar family and feels like she's getting some pushback from the world for having four kids. But the idea that many hands make for much lighter work is one straight out of Quiverfull and a patent falsehood. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: The Devil Hates Christian Marriage?

quotingquiverfull

by Colin Campbell from Meat For Men - Building on the Right FoundationEditor's note: And continuing on the same theme that his wife, Nancy Campbell, uses here is some blaming the world for being evil and claiming you have to keep your children protected from that same evil world. They are in lockstep with each other. They love to make mothers live in fear and denigrate anyone that doesn't agree with their agenda. … [Read more...]
