They Have Tasted Careers and Are Not So Fond of Them

They Have Tasted Careers and Are Not So Fond of Them

“Many 19-year-old girls, I’ve talked to many of them, believe that their career it going to be the most important thing in their life. Very few 30-year-old women believe that, even if they have high-powdered careers…” (Dr. Jordan Peterson). The 30-year-olds have tasted careers and have found them to not live up to the expectations that they were told all of their lives. From the time girls are young, they’re asked what they want to be when they grow up….

God Created Us to Be Married

God Created Us to Be Married

From the beginning when God was creating the world, He said that it was not good for man to be alone, so He would create a help meet for him (Genesis 2:18). In Proverbs 18:22, we are told, “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD.” In Proverbs 5:18, young men are admonished, “Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.” Then men are told this: “House and riches…

Use Wisdom in Marrying a Man, Not Feelings

Use Wisdom in Marrying a Man, Not Feelings

My husband and I met during our last semester of college. We were very attracted to each other and had a great time together. We began dating in February 1980 and married that December. I had no relationship with my dad growing up. He worked very hard to provide, but he wasn’t around much. He was an only child, so he didn’t talk much. I never felt close to him. Whenever we asked him if we could do anything, he…

Working Mamas Missing Their Children

Working Mamas Missing Their Children

A woman shared this on Facebook recently: I love her honesty. She shares what our culture tells women, yet she is believing the lies. The feminist agenda collides with God’s will for women, therefore, women are living a lie in a confused, chaotic state. Does society tell women to care for their children? No, it actually tells women to let others care for their children. Put them into day care when they are young and then into public schooling for…

The Blessing of Ordinary Days

The Blessing of Ordinary Days

Yesterday, I slept for most of the day. I had a fever and a terrible headache. I felt a bit better by the afternoon, so I watched a movie called “The Magic of the Ordinary Days.” It’s an old movie set during WW2, and I had seen it before but I decided to watch it any ways. A beautiful young woman grew up in a loveless home. She went to USC and studied to be an archeologist. She wanted to…

Unless You Repent, You Too Shall Perish

Unless You Repent, You Too Shall Perish

On 9/11, I posted this tweet: “John MacArthur was asked why thousands died on 9/11. He answered by quoting ‘the wages of sin is death.’ We all have an appointment with death due to sin. It may be today or in many years, but we will all die. It’s part of living on this wicked planet. Believe in Jesus Christ.” This enraged many people. They accused me of being cold-hearted and not compassionate. How did Jesus respond when people asked…

Mothers Who Regret Having Children

Mothers Who Regret Having Children

Years ago, I was sitting at the lunch table with a handful of the teachers where I taught. I was pregnant at the time. Every single woman at the table admitted that they regretted having children. (This reminded me of one of my bridesmaids coming to me on my wedding day telling me she regretted getting married!) I was shocked! I couldn’t imaging regretting having children. My mom loved having and raising children. I was looking so forward to it….

Is Michael Pearl a Pelagian

Is Michael Pearl a Pelagian

People have accused me of being a Pelagian even when I had no idea what it meant. Years ago, we attended a week long conference with Michael Pearl teaching Hebrews. It was fantastic! I went on to listen to all of his teachings of many of the books in the New Testament. I love his teachings. Do I agree with him 100 percent? No, but I don’t agree with anyone 100 percent, and I bet you don’t either. He is…

Making Sense of It All

Making Sense of It All

Written By Michael Pearl The utopitarians are trying to establish what God has already promised to institute, a kingdom of peace and happiness in a paradise where all share in the bounty of a renewed earth. They, too, want that kingdom, but since there is no god to determine man’s destiny, it is up to them to institute this kingdom. They abort babies to prevent increased population from placing further stress on an already overtaxed planet. They must purge society…

Do Husbands Nag Their Wives?

Do Husbands Nag Their Wives?

Do husbands nag their wives? There are three verses in Proverbs about nagging, quarrelsome wives: Proverbs 21:9 – It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house. Proverbs 21:19 – It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman. Proverbs 27:15 – A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike. Proverbs 25:24 – It is better…
