She Poured Herself Into the Task of Raising Children For the Lord

She Poured Herself Into the Task of Raising Children For the Lord

“Hannah (in the Bible) never spoke at a women’s conference. She never wrote a book. She never broadcast over the radio or appeared to the masses on television. She was not the leader of any women’s ministry, nor did she ever have a following of women while she lived. How, then, did she come to be numbered among the great women or history? Her ‘secret’ is simple. She bore children, and poured herself into the task of raising them for…

Your Parents Did But You Refuse to Do

Your Parents Did But You Refuse to Do

What are some things your parents did but you refuse to do? My parents argued frequently in front of us as we were growing up. I refused to do this to my children. My mom loved soap operas so I did, too, as I was growing up but as soon as my oldest daughter turned five years old and began watching them with me, I quit cold turkey along with all other immoral TV shows and movies. My parents didn’t…

Raising Oaks of Righteousness

Raising Oaks of Righteousness

Are you raising oaks of righteousness? Does the Word of God dwell richly in your children? Do your children have deep roots in Jesus? “God is trying to produce oak-tree Christians – Christians with deep roots, who have learned obedience, who have ‘strong trunks’ that are not easily swayed by the winds or trials” (Linda Dillow). Our children must learn obedience from a very young age. They must learn what the word “no” means and that if you say “no,”…

Sending Daughters Off to College Out From Under Male Protection

Sending Daughters Off to College Out From Under Male Protection

Is it wise for parents to send daughters off to college? Many daughters who are raised in Christian homes turn away from their faith when they go out from under their father’s protection and go to college. In the movie “Unplanned,” Abby states that she grew up in a Baptist home in a small town, then her parents shipped her off to college. She was soon indoctrinated with the Planned Parenthood mantra (“a woman has a right to choose what…

Why Aren’t Women’s Ministries Teaching Biblical Womanhood?

Why Aren’t Women’s Ministries Teaching Biblical Womanhood?

The first Women’s Bible Studies began in the mid-1800s by Katherine Bushnell when women began watering down the language in the Bible towards women. The way they by-passed the limited role of women in the churches was by focusing upon the verses about the equality of men and women, then pointing out those women in the Bible who had leadership roles (all from the OT: Deborah, Ruth, and Esther). They even wrote a Woman’s Bible in the late 1800s. Thus,…

Birth Control, Pornography, and Abortion are Intrinsically Linked

Birth Control, Pornography, and Abortion are Intrinsically Linked

In a video called The Baby War: Defenders and Defectors, we are taught the history of birth control in America. Doctors in the 1800s warned against contraceptives and how detrimental they were to a woman’s health. They saw nothing good about them and even found them repulsive. “The evil result of the whole system of avoiding offspring in the married state are so palpable and so gross, that one can scarcely find language strong enough to denounce it in suitable…

Inventors of Evil Things – A Contraceptive Mentality

Inventors of Evil Things – A Contraceptive Mentality

Most of us have been raised with a contraceptive mentality, even those of us who have been raised in the church and in Christian homes. Right before marriage, we are asked what contraceptive we’re going to use as if getting pregnant on the honeymoon would be a terrible thing. Then after we’ve have two children, we’re expected to begin preventing any more children since this contraceptive mentality causes us to think of children as an inconvenience and disruption to our…

Training Your Children to Obey

Training Your Children to Obey

Training children in the way they should go is not an easy task. It takes a full-time mother who is willing to sacrifice her time and energy for her children. It is not for the selfish or the me-centered. A mother must be intentional about how she is raising her children. I have seen too many mothers fail to teach their children to obey them when they were young and these children grow up to bring their mothers great heartache…

Playing Russian Roulette With Your Children

Playing Russian Roulette With Your Children

For some reason, the goal of higher education and having a career never appealed to me when I was young even though I attended public schools most of my childhood. When the other girls were talking about what they wanted to be when they grew up, all I could think about was wanting to be a wife and a mother. I did attend college, however, because this is what young women were and are supposed to do. I attended a…

Mommy Blogs Doing More Harm Than Good?

Mommy Blogs Doing More Harm Than Good?

From Raising Godly Children Christian Moms, if you’re more influenced by “mommy blogs” than your husband and/or pastor, that’s an issue. If you spend more time reading “mommy blogs” than studying your Bible, that’s an issue. These Christian “mommy blogs” are having an enormous influence in the American Evangelical Church and I think they’ve done more harm than good to be honest. Christian moms are running to these blogs, social groups, Facebook pages, etc. when they should be running to…
