Quoting Quiverfull: Raising Maidens of Virtue?

Quoting Quiverfull: Raising Maidens of Virtue? June 3, 2013

by Ladies Against Feminism to promote the Kindle edition of their book “Raising Maidens of Virture”

“Our world desperately needs to see the beautiful antithesis of the gospel. Christians need to declare to the lost that femininity is a wonderful part of the image of God: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him: male and female created he them” (Genesis 1:27). As our culture drifts into greater androgyny, what an opportunity we have to show the God-designed delight of womanliness! We need young women who cherish their purity and desire to honor their parents through chaste behavior, speech, and dress. We need girls of character who cultivate their minds and emotions to reflect God’s design with joy, intelligence, and delight.”
