Commencement Speech Urging Young Women to Be Wives, Mothers, and Homemakers!

Commencement Speech Urging Young Women to Be Wives, Mothers, and Homemakers!

This Catholic man, Harrison Butker, gave the commencement speech at a Catholic College. He encouraged the graduating women to be wives, mothers, and homemakers. He received a loud, thunderous applause to this! Why can’t all Christian colleges encourage the young women in this way? Why can’t all Christian pastors preach this? Why aren’t all godly, older women teaching this to the younger women? Why??? “For the ladies present today, congratulations on an amazing accomplishment. You should be proud of all…

A Biblical View of Children

A Biblical View of Children

Written By Laura Johnson “False teaching is easily identified by the fact that it is willingly received by all, and is to everyone’s liking.” John Calvin We live in a culture that is constantly testing and blurring the lines of Scripture. Because of this, it is hard to see the truth hidden behind cultural lies or half-truths. We are quick to justify our actions and claim Legalism or Christian Liberty. However, “Obedience isn’t legalism” (CS Lewis) and Christian Liberty is…

Reasons to Remain Childfree

Reasons to Remain Childfree

Ellie Gonsalves, a model and actress, gave 178 reasons why she chooses to remain childfree to her over a million followers on Instagram. (I won’t link to her since she’s extremely immodest.) She’s insightful about all of the hard parts about bearing and raising children. It’s far from easy! None of God’s ways are easy, but they are good. Here is part of her list: 1. They are YOUR responsibility until the day you die 2. Post partum hair loss…

Teaching Little Ones to Sit Quietly in Church

Teaching Little Ones to Sit Quietly in Church

Written By Reverend Brian Abshire in SALT Magazine from October 2009 The time to start teaching your children to worship is when they are babies. Children are NEVER too young to learn but teaching them is often difficult, because we are often not willing to do what is necessary. Look, we all realize that babies make “happy noises” and no one in my experience has ever been frustrated with a baby cooing during a church service. It is the child…

Teaching Children to Rule Their Emotions

Teaching Children to Rule Their Emotions

Written By Pastor Toby Sumpter The reason why #spankinggate matters is there is a full court press from the liberal left to groom and disciple our children. The world hates the idea of us teaching our children to rule their emotions, to have self-control, and above all else be obedient to Christ. Everyone knows that children are the future, and we are fighting over rival visions of the future. One vision worships the goddess of feelings and sentiment. In that…

Learning Biblical Womanhood From Older Women

Learning Biblical Womanhood From Older Women

The other night, I listened to a sermon by Voddie Baucham called The Sufficiency of Scripture in the Disciple-Making Ministry of the Church and the Home. I encourage you to all go listen to it! He affirms what I teach concerning what women should be teaching other women. Older women are commanded to teach younger women. What are they commanded to teach them, so the young women don’t blaspheme God’s Word? “That they may teach the young women theology, Bible,…

Raising Teenagers That Aren’t Rebellious

Raising Teenagers That Aren’t Rebellious

Our four children walk in Truth. They all love the Lord and for this, we are very thankful. There is no greater joy, as God’s Word tells us. I am going to tell you how we raised them. I know there are no guarantees. Some parents raise their children in the Lord and they will still turn away from the Lord. There’s no special formula, but I will share what we did. We were strict parents as I have shared…

Mothering Through Chronic Illness

Mothering Through Chronic Illness

When I was 30 and my fourth was a baby, I became very sick and was sick for many years. I was forced to be home every day all day long. I mothered my children full time. I was always available for them. God taught me many valuable lessons through my sufferings. Children need and want full-time mothers. Children being raised by full-time mothers are far more secure and emotional stable than those who are not. Learn to suffer in…

Children Being Abandoned By Their Mothers

Children Being Abandoned By Their Mothers

Recently I shared this tweet: “I was raised by nannies and daycares. It sucked. Have this memory of being like three and sitting inside my mom’s closet wrapped in her robe, smelling her smell, missing her so completely because she was gone on a work trip for weeks. Some sad sh+t. Don’t do that to your kids.” The response and comments were overwhelming! I am going to share a few of them since God commands women to be “keepers at…

Monitor Everything They See and Read

Monitor Everything They See and Read

“The printing press puts into the hands of parents a means of good which they may use to the greatest advantage in the culture of their home-life and in the shaping of the lives of their household. But they must keep a most diligent watch over the pages that they introduce. They should know the character of every book and paper that comes within the doors, and should resolutely exclude everything that would defile. “Then, while they exclude everything whose…
