Quoting Quiverfull: Dress Yourself Out of Depression?

Quoting Quiverfull: Dress Yourself Out of Depression? September 21, 2016

quotingquiverfullby Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – Ready To Go

Editor’s note: Nancy is saying this to mothers, but from here it reads like some sort of perhaps advice to depressed ladies. Get up and get dressed. Don’t drag around in your bathrobe and nightgown! Tell yourself how hap-hap-happy you are! Deny your reality, deny that you’re so depressed that going back to bed seems like a great option not long after you get up. Paste on that grin!

Dear mother, you are in the most power-packed and influential career in the nation. When you get up each morning, get dressed accordingly. Don’t wander out in your bathrobe–you can’t work in your bathrobe. Get dressed and ready for your great job for the day. Not only put on your clothes, but put on the right attitude.

Start the day confessing, “I love being a mother. I am in the greatest career in the nation. The children and I are going to have a great day today.”

Now you are dressed. You have the right attitude and confession. You’re ready to go!

QUOTING QUIVERFULL is a regular feature of NLQ – we present the actual words of noted Quiverfull leaders, cultural enforcers and those that seek to keep women submitted to men 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.
