Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Adapt To Your Man Or Else?

Quoting Quiverfull: Part 1 – Adapt To Your Man Or Else? December 12, 2014
When you force dye roses to make them certain colors it shortens the life span of the rose considerably. I would think doing the same with humans might have the same effect, or at the very least lead to a life filled with frustration.

It’s all about those fake stereotypes Debi promotes in her books, Visionary, Priestly, etc, etc, etc,…. you get the point. She attaches ‘colors’ to each role and stereotype too.

God clearly tells us in his Word that he created the woman to be the man’s helper. God fashioned women to be what our men need but it takes cooperation on our part to become a truly fit helper. It is quite a calling. In order to do this a woman needs to be a kaleidoscope—a full array of color. One woman might be strong in red, but she also has all the other colors so that she can blend her life into that of her man. God provides us with all that we need to fulfill our calling. For example, at this time in my life as a Help Meet I am required to be a writer, office director, web planner, wife, grandmother and, last but certainly not least, a country woman. If I had to give myself a color or type at this time in my life it would be a bright orange—half red, and half yellow. I have been put into a role that requires leadership and creativity. As I was growing up my color was blue (Servant) so I have had to adapt quite a bit. If I had married a different man I would likely not be a writer, office director, web planner or a country woman. How different my life would have been!
