How to Have a Merry Heart

How to Have a Merry Heart

How do we gain a merry heart? There are many positive and beneficial things about having a merry heart. “A merry heart does good like a medicine” (Proverbs 17:22). “A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance” (Proverbs 15:13). “[She] that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast” (Proverbs 15:15). From a merry heart comes a cheerful countenance and a continual feast. It is like good medicine without the negative side effects! It’s not faking being happy that makes…

The Bachelorette and the Purity Movement

The Bachelorette and the Purity Movement

The Bachelorette, Hannah, and the Purity Movement, Josh Harris, have made big news recently. Here are a few great quotes about both of these that I have found recently and wanted to share with you. “What do you expect when so many Christian churches have been preaching nothing but tolerance and love for so long, demanding nothing and offering false absolution in exchange for a few bucks in the plate? You can’t understand Christ if you don’t understand sin. Too…

Birth Control is an Implicit Attack on the Beauty of Life Itself

Birth Control is an Implicit Attack on the Beauty of Life Itself

“The issue of birth control cuts to the core of the diabolical disorientation of the family in the Western world. When your daughter, sister, wife, or girlfriend swallows that pill, not only does she ingest all the artificial hormones that increasingly are linked to breast cancer and strokes later in life, she ingests our society’s judgment of her worth… “Birth control is inherently harmful in that it disrupts something that is good and performing according to its nature: fertility in…

Regretting Her College Education

Regretting Her College Education

A woman named Kathryn Beal tweeted this the other day: “I regret my college education. If you want to be a wife and a mom, you will likely feel aimless like I did. Many people see college as necessary, but it isn’t. For aspiring homemakers, the cost may not be worth the benefits.” I can relate to her. I don’t necessarily regret it, but I would have been fine not going since all I wanted to do was to be…

Perilous Times Have Come to America

Perilous Times Have Come to America

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. “For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, “Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, “Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. “For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and…

Women Learn in Silence With All Subjection

Women Learn in Silence With All Subjection

“Let the women learn in silence with all subjection” (1 Timothy 2:11). Many women hate this verse, even Christian women, and more and more churches seem to be ignoring it. Many women don’t want to learn in silence and they don’t want to be in subjection. They want to be able to speak and preach/teach in the churches or at least listen to the women who do these things. They must think they know better than God. They must certainly…

Are Men Commanded to Be the Providers?

Are Men Commanded to Be the Providers?

A woman asked me if there was more than just one verse that states men are to be the providers of their families. The verse she referenced is found in 1 Timothy 5:8, “But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” Yes, there is! Let’s go back to the beginning of time, right after the Fall, when God gave the man…

Put Away Your Childish Ways

Put Away Your Childish Ways

“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things” (1 Corinthians 13:11). Many women today never grow up. They act like children even as adults. They are led by their emotions and feelings. They get offended easily. They have temper tantrums when things don’t go their way. When they want something, they demand they get it. They are…

What Changed Pro-Choicers into Pro-Lifers?

What Changed Pro-Choicers into Pro-Lifers?

On the Facebook site called Secular Pro-Life, this question was asked, “How many of you used to be pro-choice? What changed your mind?” I am going to share some of the comments since they are powerful! Luarissa: “I was pro-choice until I had an abortion. I’ve repented and been forgiven, so I no longer sit in shame or guilt. But that does not erase or minimize the tragedy of what I did. I am grateful to my forgiving Father. In…

Fatherlessness is Destroying Our Country

Fatherlessness is Destroying Our Country

Evil seeks to destroy men. Feminism seeks to destroy men. Alcohol seeks to destroy men. Welfare, the government, and no-fault divorce seeks to destroy men. Fatherlessness and divorce seeks to destroy men. If Satan can destroy men, he’s won the battle. In my post about women needing men, there were plenty of women who told me that they didn’t need a man. That’s plain wrong. Children need a father. Little girls need a father. Little boys need a father. They…
