by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies – Batten Down the Hatches!
Editor’s note: Nancy is working on the fear-mongering hard here, implying that your children will only turn out right if mom and dad love each other the way she thinks that they should. Yawn. She also has another post up right now where she calls the Pope the Antichrist.
The Number One vision of our lives should be to strengthen our marriage and family. Everything else should surrender to this priority. A child can be saved from much heartache later in life when brought up in a family where the father and mother love one another, are committed to one another, and the family ties are strong.
Can I encourage you to strengthen your marriage a little more today? Ask God for something you can do today to make your marriage a little lovelier, sweeter, and stronger. You may like to call your husband right now to remind him that you love him.
Perhaps you don’t feel very loving to him at the moment? Forget your feelings and do it by faith! And watch what will happen. Plan a delightful meal and have it ready for him as he walks in the door this evening. Write a love note to have waiting on his pillow as he goes to bed.
How many extra things are you doing outside the home this week? How many evenings have you planned to go out? Why not cancel something and stay home with your husband and family instead? Think of a special thing you can do together as a family this evening. Turn off the TV and read a story together. Or, get each one to do a mime, read a poem, put on an act, or do something fun. You and your husband will be the audience, but be ready, the children will want you to perform something, too!
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.
