Start Having Babies Young and Have Them After 40 Too?

Start Having Babies Young and Have Them After 40 Too? July 29, 2018

Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies seems to have changed much of the format of her Women’s Daily Encouragement from a four or so paragraph pondering on motherhood, gardening, home and other Quiverfull  topics. Now she shares one or two sentences. Or she shared the motherhood and birth stories of many of her followers.

Some of the stories parallel NLQ Founder Vyckie Garrison’s story of vasectomy reversal followed by militant fecundity. Others involve deciding to have more children after a pile of miscarriages. But the one thing most of them have in common is deciding to turn one’s womb into a Holy Pez dispenser of babies in the middle of financial struggles. Not the wisest of courses, but Nancy makes the claim that God will always pony up the dough if you make with the babies.

Here’s a tiny tidbit of one of the stories:

There’s nothing wrong with having a baby at 40, if you and your partner are in agreement and you do not have physical or financial limitations. Where the problem starts for me is when people like Nancy Campbell decide that EVERYONE must have a baby at 40. This is Quiverfull theology that damages so many, creates guilt, frustration and a host of problems.
