The Home is the Nursery of a Nation

The Home is the Nursery of a Nation

Written by Darrow Miller in Above Rubies Magazine One thing a woman is especially designed to do is nurture the next generation. Woman, in the very fiber of her being, was made to nurture. In our modern materialistic culture, things are more important than relationships. The woman’s ability to nurse and nurture a child has very little cachet. As a result, families are dissolving. Children may be provided with things but know little of a mother’s nurture. We are reaping…

The Heartbroken Career Woman

The Heartbroken Career Woman

This post contains notes I took from a video by Jennifer Morse from “The Ruth Institute.” “We must clean up the mess from the sexual revolution. These are the victims of the sexual revolution: 1) Children of divorce (no-fault divorce); 2) Reluctantly divorced (One party doesn’t want to get divorced but the government sides with the one who wants the divorce.); 3) Donor conceived persons; 4) The hook-up culture; 4) Heartbroken career women. “The heartbroken career women have it all:…

Activities While Being “Stuck” at Home

Activities While Being “Stuck” at Home

We all are stuck at home right now. This is a new concept for many people. For many years, I was stuck at home since I was so sick but now we all are choosing to be stuck at home to try and prevent the spread of this virus. Many mothers who work full time away from their homes are experiencing something they’ve never experienced before – being home with their children 24/7. I asked the women in the chat…

The Danger of Smart Phones For Your Children

The Danger of Smart Phones For Your Children

Written By Karen Sargent in No Greater Joy Magazine I read an article yesterday that should be required reading for every parent. It was written by a young mom, Sloane (not her real name). She works with an organization called Bark, whose sole purpose is to protect children from online predators. Her story is chilling. In the article she recounts a typical day in her work with Bark. They start with a photo of Sloane wearing clothing a pre-teen would…

Mothers are Everything to Their Children

Mothers are Everything to Their Children

“The prescribed cure for the problem with no name was for women to go to work and begin having more abortions. Politicians obliged with the demanded policies, and companies began to accommodate. So today, married couples both work. Their children are in day care from the time they are infants — at a huge cost in both money and family cohesiveness, and the couples hope the nursery will care for them safely and properly. “The two salaries together equal about…

Your Experience Doesn’t Negate Fundamental Truths

Your Experience Doesn’t Negate Fundamental Truths

Someone wrote “Children need both parents” above an article on Facebook the other day and some women went ballistic! One woman wrote, “This is a blanket statement. There are parents whose presence hurts their children. Millstones.” Another wrote, “I can attest to the fact that kids do not need both parents. My Dad raped me. And was incarcerated in 2009. I don’t need him. He has just caused pain. My mother has provided sufficient support and love to me and…

We Were Strict Parents

We Were Strict Parents

We were strict parents. Many told us we were too strict. We disciplined them diligently when they were young. They needed little discipline after the age of five. We were careful who they hung out with. We were careful what TV shows and movies they saw. We had a curfew even through high school. I think it was 10:00 pm. We didn’t allow our children to date before 18 years of age. They could hang out with friends in a…

Preventing Rebellious and Broken Children

Preventing Rebellious and Broken Children

On the “Happiness Hour” that Dennis Prager has every week, recently he asked the question, “If you have a rebellious or broken child who is an adult, looking back, is there anything you would have done differently?” One woman called in and said she would have been careful to not allow her daughter to hang out with the wrong crowd but since she was a single mother who worked full time, she didn’t feel she could do anything about it….

Birth Control For Christians?

Birth Control For Christians?

Written By Nancy Campbell From Above Rubies The Lord, in His holy Scriptures, calls children blessings. He calls them a reward. Why would we not want a reward from the Lord? Would we refuse any other reward from Him? A bigger house? A newer car? There are no Scriptures supporting the use of birth control. The only mention of any sort of birth control (deliberately preventing a child from being conceived), follows with the Lord killing the man who committed…

A Child Left to Himself

A Child Left to Himself

There are too many children who are being left to themselves. Their parents aren’t disciplining, nor are they training their children. They have fallen for the “gentle parenting” movement. They refuse to say “no” to their children or tell them what they should do. They want them to have a “free spirit” so when they are biting, hitting, and pulling out other children’s hair, their response is, “They’ll grow out of it.” This is testing God. This is playing Russian…
