The Fruit of the Womb is His Reward

The Fruit of the Womb is His Reward

“God setteth the solitary in families…Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build…Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man, so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate…Thy wife shall be as a…

Childfree is Freedom?

Childfree is Freedom?

“Not all women want children. For me, it sounds like the worst deal like drawing the short straw of life. The man gets to have it all: a family, a higher education, a fulfilling career, free time, free will, friends. But the woman? Must stay home forever and only raise children, be a servant, and clean the house. No, thank you. Childfree is freedom.” (Tiffany on Facebook) My response to Tiffany: “You’ve bought the evil feminist agenda hook, line, and…

The Extinction of Honeymoon Babies

The Extinction of Honeymoon Babies

“I recently received a Christmas card from the most traditional Christian family I know in real life. As is typical of Christmas cards, it contained updates on each family member. I was saddened, though not surprised, to find that the card listed the professional accomplishments of each grown and married daughter, including progress on Master’s degrees. These women all married young and are still of childbearing age but none have any children, having chosen at least for the present to…

Protect Your Sons

Protect Your Sons

We live in a world that is not our final destination. We must be as wise as serpents and as innocent as doves. We must raise our children in the nurture and in the admonition of the Lord. Their eternal souls are all that matter in the end. This was removed by Instagram a few hours after posting it yesterday morning because it was considered “hate speech.” There are many who are easily offended by the truth of what is…

Telling Young Women to Get Married and Have Children is Wrong?

Telling Young Women to Get Married and Have Children is Wrong?

Mary Kassian, in the post I shared last week, ended her article about complementarianism this way: “If you hear someone tell you that complementarity means you have to get married, have dozens of babies, be a stay-at-home housewife, clean toilets, completely forego a career, chuck your brain, tolerate abuse, watch Leave It to Beaver reruns, bury your gifts, deny your personality, and bobble-head nod ‘yes’ to everything men say, don’t believe her. That’s a straw (wo)man misrepresentation. It’s not complementarianism. I…

The Incredible Miracle of Life

The Incredible Miracle of Life

My eleventh grandbaby was born yesterday! We are so blessed. I texted all seven of my close college friends the good news with the picture of the precious baby. One of them wrote the following response which I thought was absolutely beautiful! Birth will ALWAYS brings me to my knees. That sweet little oxygen breathing, nursing, little fellow was in a tight little ball, surrounded by water, in the dark, getting nutrition through his belly button, yesterday! A miracle for…

Continually Under His Mother’s Care

Continually Under His Mother’s Care

Hudson Taylor (1832-1905) was a great missionary to China and his son, Howard Taylor wrote a book about his father’s life. A friend of mine gave me a chapter from the book titled “Nurture and Admonition.” Hudson’s parents were godly who were very intentional about raising their children. I am going to give you a few snippets from this chapter on what Howard said about Hudson’s mother in order to encourage you in raising your children. His parents produced exceptional…

Lot’s Family Versus Noah’s Family

Lot’s Family Versus Noah’s Family

Both Lot and Noah lived in wicked cultures and God destroyed both. Let’s look at both of their families and how their wicked culture influenced them. When two angels came to warn Lot about the coming destruction and they went into Lot’s home, ALL the men of the city, young and old, came to Lot’s home because they wanted to have sex with the two angels. How did Lot answer them? “Behold now, I have two daughters which have not…

Mothers NEED Separation From Their Children to Grow?

Mothers NEED Separation From Their Children to Grow?

A young mother wrote this recently on her Instagram: “I feel sorry for any mother who can’t get a break from their children. Having your kids 24/7 does NOT make you a great mother. It destroys you mentally, you need separation to grow.” Not one thing about this statement is biblical, women. I shared this on my Instagram and women asked me if I would write about this since the mindset of “mom needs her own time/getaway” is very strong…

Job Descriptions for Older and Younger Women

Job Descriptions for Older and Younger Women

Here’s the job description from God for younger women: “I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully” (1 Timothy 5:14). “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). “Notwithstanding she shall be…
