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…

Parents are to Raise Their Children, Not Strangers

Parents are to Raise Their Children, Not Strangers

“As schooling becomes more rigid and consumes more of childhood, it is causing increasing harm to children. Many of them are unable to meet unrealistic academic and behavioral expectations at such a young age, and they are being labeled with and medicated for delays and disorders that often only exist within a schooled context. Parents should push back against this alarming trend by holding onto their kids longer or opting out of forced schooling altogether,” wrote Kerry MacDonald in her…

Do Your Children Want What You Have?

Do Your Children Want What You Have?

“Let your girl see that you love God’s Word more than a novel, a miniseries, a movie. Let her see you read it, study it, learn it, memorize it, apply it to daily life” (Audrey Broggi). Do your children see that your love for the Lord and for God’s Word is the most important thing in your life? Do they see you living out your love for Jesus? In raising godly offspring, this is the most important thing you can…

Thoughts of Those Who Had Career Mothers

Thoughts of Those Who Had Career Mothers

Careers and jobs were intended for men to make a way to provide for their families, not for women to forsake marriage, forsake bearing children, and forsake raising them full time. This has to be one of Satan’s greatest deceptions upon mankind. Feminism has done NOTHING to make children’s lives better, only worse. Millions have been and are being brutally murdered in the womb. Many are left abandoned all day while their mothers pursue their “dreams.” Divorce is rampant and…

Promoting Breastfeeding as Natural May Be Ethically Problematic?

Promoting Breastfeeding as Natural May Be Ethically Problematic?

Jessica Martucci PhD and Anne Barnhill PhD wrote an article that was published for the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) explaining to health professionals why they need to stop describing breastfeeding as ‘natural.’ “Promoting breastfeeding as ‘natural’ may be ethically problematic, and, even more troublingly, it may bolster this belief that ‘natural’ approaches are presumptively healthier.” They fear that because vaccinations aren’t natural, then those who are into “natural” won’t vaccinate their children, therefore, they want pediatricians to stop using the…

Are You Truly Pro-Life?

Are You Truly Pro-Life?

We are living in an anti-child culture. This culture seeks pleasure and self over all else. Whatever makes them “happy” is what they want. Consider this article from CNBC in which they want you to know that kids make you poor and you’ll save a lot of money if you don’t have them, as if money is everything. “Your friends may tell you having kids has made them happier. They’re probably lying. Research shows that parenthood leads to a happiness…

Living Biblical Womanhood Deepens Our Love

Living Biblical Womanhood Deepens Our Love

The disciples came to Jesus and asked Him what the signs of His second coming and the end of the world would be. Jesus began describing all that would take place and in the middle of His discourse with them, He said, “And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold” (Matthew 24:12). Evil will abound and the love of many will grow cold. We can see this happening today. Evil (Satan) is the opposite of good…
