Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Feed Your Kids Spiritual Junk Food?

Quoting Quiverfull: Don’t Feed Your Kids Spiritual Junk Food? September 11, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies – Are You Satisfied With Scraps?

Editor’s note: Disparaging of those that do not garden and cook healthy? Check. Denigration of regular physicals and medical care? Check. Demonization of popular culture? Check. Looks like Nancy has covered a lot of bases in the fear factoring list to control her followers.

For an extra laugh be sure to check out the photo she posted of one of her grandsons dressed like he ran away from the ‘Game of Thrones’ set in Northern Ireland right down to greasy hair and broad sword on another post of hers. So popular culture is evil in her world unless it is popular culture one of her family loves?

What kind of food do you eat in your home? Junk food or healthy food? I’m sure most of you try to eat healthy food as much as possible. As mothers we are very aware of our responsibility regarding what we allow our children to eat. I cared very much for my children’s bodies as they grew up. I never allowed junk food. Never had any refined foods, white sugar, or any of the “whites” (white flour, white pasta, white rice, etc.) in my pantry. I wanted them to grow healthy and strong. Apart from going to the emergency room for broken bones or the boys cutting their legs open throwing knives (!) etc., we didn’t even have a doctor for any of our children growing up.

But although I cared so much for their bodies, I cared even more for their souls and spirits. We didn’t feed our children scraps. Praise God, we live in a country where we have access to whatever food we want. They don’t have to live on scraps; we can give them the best food. But what do we feed their souls and spirits? Do we allow them to feed on scraps? I’m amazed that many Christian mothers don’t mind their children spending hours on Pokémon Go, Harry Potter, and many other negative and questionable games and books. Scraps for their souls.
