Living the Good Life

Living the Good Life

“Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in his ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands: happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. Thy wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of thine house: thy children like olive plants round about thy table. Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the Lord” (Psalm 128:1-4). This is the good life since God’s ways are good….

The Progression of Sexual Sin in Our Culture

The Progression of Sexual Sin in Our Culture

When I went to a public high school in the mid 1970s, life was becoming highly sexualized since it was after the 60s sexual revolution. Most of my friends were sleeping around with their boyfriends and some were having abortions. One of my dates picked me up drunk and took me to a “party.” He led me to a bedroom. I sat on the side of the bed and told him to take me home. I wasn’t about to have…

Valuing One’s Career and Paycheck Over Their Children

Valuing One’s Career and Paycheck Over Their Children

The following comment was made on my post Every Child Deserves to Have a Mother at Home. Women are taught to value their career and paycheck over their children and no one thinks twice about it. I am trying to encourage women to think twice about the lies they have been told. “My husband and I have struggled with infertility for three years and are about to start IVF. I have never been angry about our inability to conceive naturally…

Your Priority Should Be to Pass on Your Faith to Your Children

Your Priority Should Be to Pass on Your Faith to Your Children

The only place to find wisdom and understanding is in God’s Word. The wisdom of the world is foolishness to God. Most of the young in our nation have only been fed the wisdom of the world and they only know foolishness. Most have never been taught the wisdom and understanding of God. We are told in Proverbs 3 that wisdom is more precious than rubies. It’s ways are ways of pleasantness, and her paths are peace. She is the…

Does the Apostle Paul Devalue Marriage and Having Children?

Does the Apostle Paul Devalue Marriage and Having Children?

In the beginning, God put man (Adam) “into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it” (Genesis 2:15). His work was to be in the garden. Then God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him” (Genesis 2:18). Then we are told, “Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh” ( Genesis…

Women Not Wanting Children

Women Not Wanting Children

Many women will tell me that they don’t want children, even Christian women will tell me this. They act like this is a choice they can make even though they are married. Children are seen as something they simply don’t desire and they seem fine with this decision. Women who say they don’t want children have given into the anti-child feminist mindset of our day which has led to the slaughtering of millions of unborn babies. Children should be desired…

Satan Wants to Destroy Your Children

Satan Wants to Destroy Your Children

As most of you know, I receive a lot of hate-filled comments on my social media. I also receive them on this blog but I don’t publish them. I am going to show you this one I received the other day. I know it’s from a troll so I’m not sure it’s accurate, but I do know without a doubt that Satan is doing all that he can to destroy your children. “I work with an organization that helps children…

Teaching Children to Remain Separate From the World

Teaching Children to Remain Separate From the World

This post was on the No Greater Joy website written by Michael Pearl and it was just one long paragraph so it was difficult to read. I decided to make a post out of it to make it easier for you all to read! It’s an important post. We must teach our children to remain separate from this wicked world. In our recent article on betrothal, I mentioned that many homeschooling parents insulate their children without, but fail to insulate…

It’s Time For Christians to Rebel and Have Lots of Children!

It’s Time For Christians to Rebel and Have Lots of Children!

There’s an article in The Gospel Coalition called It’s Time for a New Culture War Strategy by Kevin Deyoung. I am not a fan of TGC and do not recommend them since I see them compromising on a lot of issues, but I do like many things stated in this article. Here are a few excerpts that I completely agree with: “Here’s a culture war strategy conservative Christians should get behind: have more children and disciple them like crazy. Strongly…

Keeping Your Children From Evil

Keeping Your Children From Evil

How do we keep our children from evil in this wicked land? We are told in God’s Word to “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). The devil wants nothing more than to devour your children, women. You must raise them up in the nurture and in the admonition of the Lord, as God commands, since there is NO greater joy than to have…
