Empowered – Developing Strong Women for Kingdom Service

| September 27, 2016

“Strong women are integral to building a godly culture. However, many Christian circles are riddled with unsound doctrines, humanistic stereotypes, and hidden abuses that cripple the influence of women in their homes, churches, and communities. In these essays, Andrea Schwartz explores how Christ’s absolute authority, the protection of the trustee family, the justice of God’s […]

Highlands Ministries: Don’t Be Too Nice

| September 4, 2016

“It is right to be patient and kind, but Christian character has a firmness to it that does not meekly step aside when walking in the right. We must learn to live out biblical joy and love and submission within the context of a world packed with people who have, in many ways, set themselves […]

World Magazine: Rosaria Butterfield, No Free Passes

| August 6, 2016

I interviewed Rosaria Butterfield 3½ years ago as her first book, The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert, was coming out and heading toward wide readership. Since then she’s spoken widely throughout the United States and sometimes faced LGBTQ demonstrators displeased with her movement from lesbianism (and a tenured Syracuse professorship in women’s studies) to […]

Queen of the Home: Inspiring Women to Their Sacred Calling

| July 15, 2016

In past generations, the role of wife and mother was viewed as a sacred calling. The committed homemaker was seen as strong, capable, intelligent, and irreplaceable. She was regarded not only as a crucial part of the home, but as a foundational bulwark of society. She was considered worthy of great honor, appreciation, and respect. […]

The Federalist: A Little Mother Prevents Big Brother

| June 11, 2016

As all good totalitarians know, it is mothers—specifically, devoted and self-sacrificing mothers—who gum up the works of statist control in a society. Her crime is forging bonds of love, the self-sacrificing kind that don’t mix with big government schemes. Worse, when she forges these bonds within the context of a marriage covenant with the child’s […]

Mercatornet: Infertility and Ignorance

| May 17, 2016

Feminism taught a us a different kind of womanhood all together. One that had little to do with how God designed women, and what His intended purposes are. Unfortunately, many women discover this truth far too late. As reported by the Chicago Tribune recently, a national survey of childless women in the USA aged 25-45 […]

Schwartz: Is it a Man’s World?

| May 12, 2016

One of the things I dislike more than women’s lib is the attitude that “It’s a man’s world.” When I hear a man say this, I regard him as both stupid and anti-Christian. Read the rest here

Desiring God: The Beauty of Womanhood

| April 29, 2016

“Who is this who looks down like the dawn, beautiful as the moon, bright as the sun, awesome as an army with banners? (Song of Solomon 6:10 ESV) Who indeed? A woman, of course. Where but in the Scriptures could we find a vision of womanhood as glorious as this? Who but our God could […]

Phylicia Delta: How I let go of the woman I wanted to be

| April 25, 2016

I spent years molding myself into my ideal woman. I had a vision for who she would be. I was fairly certain that, with enough work, I could make her happen. I could be all the things: educated, well dressed, articulate, political, logical, and – the end goal – successful. Then I had a baby. When God brought […]

Ungrind: Warrior Mama

| April 13, 2016

I love C.S. Lewis’ simple, yet profound depiction of spiritual warfare. “There is no neutral ground in the universe. Every square inch, every split second is claimed by God and counterclaimed by Satan.”11 So too is every square inch of motherhood. Read the rest here

Chalcedon: The Place of Woman

| March 21, 2016

One of the chronic problems of men is that too often they react instead of acting…This has all too often been true of the reactions of men, Christian and non-Christian, to the women’s liberation movement. The results are sometimes painful. Are women’s bible studies okay or not? Is the husband the mediator between his wife […]

World Mag: When Personality Quirks Become Sinful

| March 19, 2016

A long time ago, a woman I knew was acting boorishly and rude. This was rather typical of her but always chalked up to her “quirky” personality: “Oh, that’s just Elaine. She always walks 10 steps ahead of everybody.” Or: “Elaine doesn’t like to sit at the table and eat with others.” Or: “Elaine always […]

Challies: I Feel, I Think, I Believe

| February 22, 2016

[Editor’s note: It is important to sort these things out especially since all three precede action. It gets tricky when beliefs are rooted in feelings and become seeming convictions we’re passionate about. We witness passionate illogical campaigns that work toward selfish ends everyday. Feminism has modeled this in countless ways. The humanist is left to himself to find […]

Why Be Happy?

| February 22, 2016

Prager University give us a big clue as to why feminism will never make us happy. Happiness is at it’s core selfless. Our happiness affects others profoundly, that’s why happiness is a moral obligation. We cannot be guided by feelings because it is how we act that affects others not how we feel. Don’t inflict […]

Love or Die: Christ’s Wake-Up Call to the Church

| February 9, 2016

Alexander Strauch writes, Pursue love… 1 Cor. 14:1 My first encounter with the biblical principles of love started in a negative way during my early years as a born-again Christian. I was surprised when I saw true believers fight, display angry attitudes, and separate from one another. To make matters worse, the conflicts I witnessed […]
