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…

Raise Your Daughters in the Ways of the Lord

Raise Your Daughters in the Ways of the Lord

Recently, I wrote this on twitter: “Raise your daughters from an early age that their highest and best calling is to be a wife and a mother! They will hear the opposite from culture.” Of course, the reaction was fierce and highly condemning. K. B. Davies agreed with me and wrote a beautiful post in reaction to this. RAISE YOUR DAUGHTERS RIGHT: I absolutely love swimming against the apostate tide of this world and going against its ungodly opinions/culture (so…

How to Be a Kind, Tenderhearted, and Forgiving Wife

How to Be a Kind, Tenderhearted, and Forgiving Wife

Written by Ken and me Jesus taught a parable in Mathew 18 of a king who called to reckon his servant who owed him an enormous debt of perhaps up to a million dollars in today’s currency. The king commanded him, his wife, children, and everything he had to be sold. The servant threw himself at the feet of his lord and pled for patience and mercy and the king heard his cries, was moved with compassion, and forgave him…

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…

Few Teach Women to Be Keepers at Home

Few Teach Women to Be Keepers at Home

Being a wife and mother are not valued in this culture, no, not even among many Christians. They teach their daughters to pursue higher education and careers which often keep them far from God’s will for them. I have been reading a book called “The Golden Gems of Life.” It was written in 1880. The authors had no problems teaching women that their calling is in the home as a wife and mother. This is rare indeed. Here are a…

Called to Suffer

Called to Suffer

Many women don’t want to hear about having to suffer in a marriage. No, they believe no woman should suffer and if she’s suffering, she needs to get out of the marriage and divorce, but this isn’t scriptural. Yes, if she’s being physically abused, she needs to seek a safe place, but there’s all types of suffering other than this. God has called us to suffer; for this is not our home. Suffering causes us to keep our eyes on…

How Do Wives Win Husbands Who are Believers?

How Do Wives Win Husbands Who are Believers?

“Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; While they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear” (1 Peter 3:1, 2) Are these verses only for women who are married to unbelievers? Many believe this to be so, but I do not. Even Christian men can disobey the Word of God! The Apostle Paul could have easily…

Let’s Stop Exalting Singleness

Let’s Stop Exalting Singleness

Written by My Husband, Ken, and Me Many want to build their opinions about marriage on this verse: “For I would that all men were even as I myself” and “I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I” (1 Corinthians 7:7, 8). The Apostle Paul is saying that he wishes all could remain single as he is so they can preach the Gospel, BUT right before this verse, he…
