by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – A Beautiful Song

Editor’s note: One of Nancy’s shorter ones. Must have been a busy day. Still the message is the same as always even with Nancy’s unusual economy of words: Do not complain. Always smile. Suck it up and do it. 

Does everything seem to be going wrong? Take heart. It won’t ever be perfect, but as you continue to be faithful to your daily mothering (during the hard times and the good times), there will come a day when you will look back and see the beautiful song God has created in your family.

QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, influential bloggers and cultural enforcers and ask our readers: What do you think? Agree? Disagree? This is the place to state your opinion. Please, let’s keep it respectful – but at the same time, we encourage readers to examine the ideas of Quiverfull and Spiritual Abuse honestly and thoughtfully.

    If Nancy’s family is a song, it’s a duet between Meat Loaf and Billy Ray Cyrus, just god fucking awful.
