Quoting Quiverfull: Feminism is a Nazi-Like Plot?

obamawhitewomen

by Kelly Crawford from her blog Generation Cedar - Obama's Feminist Remark: It's Not About ChoiceKelly's really on a roll. Not merely content to make fun of an adult child coming to terms with possible parental abuse during homeschooled years now she's tossing about words like 'Hitler' and 'Choice' because of one short sentence uttered by the Commander in Chief, instantly invalidating her argument by the usage of the Nazis. Extremely disrespectful to anyone with Jewish heritage that may have lost family members to the camps. … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Your Husband Can’t Cover For You

shopping

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 216—217In this section, we see the alternative to the “good woman” Debi outlined in her three examples last week. In that passage she spoke of men who are lazy, or bad fathers, or dishonest, and informed women who may be wives of these men that it is their duty to cover for their husbands’ faults and make them appear faultless to the world. This week she speaks of women who are spendthrifts, or who leave their children with sitters, or who take advantage of others’ time and resources (her equivalent of each category for males). … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No Rights or Choice of Your Own?

choosing

by Oswald Chambers from his book "My Utmost For His Highest"Found in the Above Rubies archive in an article 'Can God Provide? My Best Investment' used as rationalization to not use 9 years of college outside of the home. The writer sacrificed her education to be a stay at home homeschooling mother most of the time. "...if you are living the life of faith you will exercise your right to waive your rights, and let God choose for you." Is choosing to do something else after investing that much time, effort and money in your education letting God choose for you or are you choosing? … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Daycare is Adopting Your Kid Out

created

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 184—185We are still in Debi’s chapter on loving one’s children. Last week we got to the first part of the chapter that actually contained some actually good advice. This had to do with the importance of a mother working one on one with her children, and teaching them little things all through the day—what goes in soup, how to sound words out, and how to fold laundry. I really did like that Debi said a mother should work directly with an individual child even in a large family, though I felt she didn’t follow that up with helpful how-tos and risked leaving overwhelmed mothers of large families … [Read more...]

CTBHHM: Esther and Her Mother

created

by Libby Anne cross posted from her blog Love, Joy, FeminismCreated To Be His Help Meet, pp. 182—183We’re still in the chapter on loving your children. Remember, Debi has told women to love their children by loving their husbands, and to love their children by not concentrating too much on loving Jesus. Now, for the first time, we actually turn to loving the children themselves. “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: Wanting More is “Pride”?

cassat

by Kelly Crawford of Generation Cedar - The Mission Field of Motherhood Another major problem is that we all fight that part of our flesh that wants to do something important, barely able to comprehend the importance of being faithful in the mundane. We struggle with the sin of pride, wanting to be recognized. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: No One Else Will Do?

listen

by Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies - No One Else Will Do Dear mother, do not be lured away by the humanistic voices all around you, in the church and in the world. Listen to God's voice. Listen to your heart. You are needed for your children. No one else will ever love and care for your children like you do. No one else will ever be sensitive to their physical needs, and especially their innermost needs as you are. … [Read more...]
