Women’s Enormous Spending Habits For Vanity

Women’s Enormous Spending Habits For Vanity

In researching for my last post about courtship and dating, one article from the New York Post had this to say about makeup: “’The cosmetics industry exploded in the 1920s,’ Weigel writes. ‘Previously, only prostitutes and actresses ‘painted.’ Victorians had viewed ‘natural’ outer beauty as a sign of clean living. But around 1900, more and more women were starting to apply cosmetics. By 1912, the Baltimore Sun reported that even respectable society women ‘are seen on our streets and fashionable…

Courtship Has Boundaries and Accountability. Dating Has Neither.

Courtship Has Boundaries and Accountability. Dating Has Neither.

“What is the difference between courting and dating,” a woman asked me on my last post. Courting has boundaries and accountability. Dating has no boundaries and no accountability. I decided to research the history of dating in America. “As cultural historians Alan Carlson and Beth Bailey put it in the Mars Hill Audio Report, Wandering Toward the Altar: The Decline of American Courtship, prior to the early 20th century, courtship involved one man and one woman spending intentional time together…

Is Dating Better Than Courtship?

Is Dating Better Than Courtship?

Jinger Duggar said in her interview with People Magazine, “I’ve seen more people honor God and live a very beautiful life who have dated, and sometimes even better than courtship. I could be so consumed with that – with having a chaperone, with not kissing before you’re married, and not holding hands before you’re engaged. All of these things that I had set up for myself that now I kind of laugh at.” I grew up in the dating era….

The Harmful Victim Mentality Has Invaded This Land

The Harmful Victim Mentality Has Invaded This Land

Written By Lindsay Harold “Everything difficult in your life is the fault of your parents.” This toxic view is very popular today and being actively propagated by many therapists. It is dividing families and making people more and more isolated. Younger generations are being taught, by the “experts,” that their completely normal, loving parents are horrible people who set them up for failure and destroyed their life. This ideology is really insidious for multiple reasons. It’s terrible for the parents…

Training Your Daughters in Biblical Womanhood

Training Your Daughters in Biblical Womanhood

“That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” (Titus 2:4,5) God commands aged women to teach these things to young women. The aged women wouldn’t need to do this if the mothers of the daughters were training them in biblical womanhood as they were growing up which they should…

Are Bill Gothard’s and IBLP’s Teachings Harmful and False?

Are Bill Gothard’s and IBLP’s Teachings Harmful and False?

As many of you know, I mark and avoid false teachers. On my video about the Jinger Duggar fiasco, someone asked me if she wasn’t right for calling out false teachings. I have heard many accusations against Bill Gothard and what he taught. In this post, I am only going to be writing about his teachings, NOT him as a man and the accusations against him. I am a truth seeker and want the truth of what is being said…

Jinger Duggar Threw Her Parents Under the Bus

Jinger Duggar Threw Her Parents Under the Bus

Jinger Duggar is coming out with a new book about her “harmful and damaging” childhood” which had “lasting effects” which caused her to be “fearful and confused who Jesus was.” She was interviewed by People Magazine. I took notes so I could make this post true to exactly what she said. She gave no praise or thankfulness to her parents, only condemnation in how they raised her. Her sister, Jill, and her cousin, Amy, are the only ones who praised…

Does Every Mother Love Mothering?

Does Every Mother Love Mothering?

Written By Audrey Broggi “Mothering From the Heart” I’ve been talking with a lot of young women recently about mothering and I was reminded of a letter a young woman wrote to me some years back. Perhaps her question and my answer will encourage you: Struggles with the Calling She asked: “Do you honestly feel as though every woman will LOVE mothering? My sister struggles. She loves her children, she loves her family, but she doesn’t love the job of…

All True Pastors are Pro-Life and Pro-Children

All True Pastors are Pro-Life and Pro-Children

A few days ago, Congress passed a law that stated that babies who were born alive from a botched abortion, couldn’t be murdered but must receive care from doctors. Every single Democrat (210) except two (one just voted present) voted against this law. This is how utterly depraved the Democrat party has become. They are the party of death. If you don’t go to a church where the pastors and elders solidly stand for life, find a new church. Last…

How Can Women Avoid Eve’s Sin?

How Can Women Avoid Eve’s Sin?

Written By Laurenlou There is one passage of Scripture I have always wondered about and have never been able to fully understand or explain. “Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing, if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety” (1 Timothy 2:15). You read that passage and you’re like what? Women saved through child bearing? There was a story of one tribe who believed this meant literal salvation so the women were encouraged to bear as many…
