The Subtle Whoring That Cost Too Much to Be Free

The Subtle Whoring That Cost Too Much to Be Free

A song called I’ve Never Been to Me was written in 1977 but didn’t become popular until 1982. I remember listening to it when I was young but never paid much attention to the words. Ken randomly began singing this song on our walk the other day and told me how much he loved it when he was a teenager so we listened to the song. When Charlene sang the paragraph that I highlighted in bold below, tears sprung to my…

Those Who Have Many Children Shall NOT Be Ashamed!

Those Who Have Many Children Shall NOT Be Ashamed!

“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” (Psalm 127:3-5). A heritage is usually tangible like money or an estate. It’s inherited from someone else. Reward means something is…

Raising Godly Offspring in This Wicked Generation

Raising Godly Offspring in This Wicked Generation

Written By Ken Lori and I had little doubt that our children would walk with the Lord when they got older. Perhaps most Christian parents feel this way, or perhaps it’s just a sense that comes from relying on God’s promise that if you “train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). Yes, we understood by watching other children of godly parents depart from the…

Birth Control and Equality with Men

Birth Control and Equality with Men

If you study the beginnings of birth control, you will find that they came from evil roots which was fully supported by feminism. “Family life was and always will be the foundation of any civilization. Destroy the family and you destroy the country” (Erin Pizzey).  “Feminism is Communist both in origin and spirit. It pretends to champion women but in fact neuters both sexes and destroys the basic social unit, the family” (Henry Makow Ph.D.). God is the giver of life….

What About Barren and Single Women?

What About Barren and Single Women?

Written by Nancy Campbell at Above Rubies A reader once asked me, “If motherhood is the highest calling of women, what about women who are single or married women who are barren?” This is a very valid question. When we give birth to a baby and gradually add to our family we are propelled into the realm of motherhood. However, this is not the beginning of motherhood. Every female is ordained at birth to be a mother. Little girls love…

Accepting Mediocrity in Motherhood, Marriage, and Faith

Accepting Mediocrity in Motherhood, Marriage, and Faith

Written By Hayden Ritchie From Hippie Hayden This post is very atypical of my usual kind. But, it is something that has been weighing very heavily in my mind for the past two months or so, that I’ve decided it’s worth sharing with the internet. There’s a trend in society right now, especially all over social media, to accept mediocrity. Specifically, mediocrity in motherhood, marriage, and faith. As a younger woman, I’m very troubled by the lack of Titus Two…

The Devil Lives in Our Phones and is Wreaking Havoc on Our Children

The Devil Lives in Our Phones and is Wreaking Havoc on Our Children

Parents are wondering how to handle screen time with their children. We all know that screens, whether they be computers, smart phones, iPads, or televisions are highly addictive. We know they are taking us away from real live interaction with others. Who knows what the long term impact of them will be? From an article in The New York Times entitled A Dark Consensus About Screens: “Athena Chavarria, who worked as an executive assistant at Facebook and is now at…

When NOT to Obey an Older Woman

When NOT to Obey an Older Woman

There was a woman’s journals I read years ago. She was an older, godly woman who I greatly admired. She had many children and raised them in the nurture and the admonition of the Lord. Her children were all growing up to walk in Truth. BUT she was adamant about mothers co-sleeping with their children and nursing their babies on demand. In fact, they usually had four children in their bedroom, two in their bed and two on the floor….

Dating is the Breeding Ground For Fornication

Dating is the Breeding Ground For Fornication

Modern dating is simply another name for sexual immorality and has damaged the institution of marriage which requires faithfulness and commitment. It leads to divorce and devastation instead. In an article I read recently, a man who is not a believer says that dating is a failure and doesn’t work to find a life partner. (I will not link to it because of the bad language in it and I do not agree with what he believes.) He says the…

More Problems with Daycare

More Problems with Daycare

Last week, I wrote a post about the problems with daycare. When I saw all of the comments being made on Facebook under this post, I came up with a few more problems. For one thing and most importantly, God commands mothers be the ones to bring their children up in the nurture and the admonition of the Lord. Yes, this command is given to fathers but as our husband’s help meet, we are to help him in this area…
