Challies: Saved Through Childbearing

| November 16, 2015

In a recent sermon I found that I had to touch upon one what I consider of the trickiest passages in the Bible: 1 Timothy 2:15. Here is what this verse says: “Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control.” Taken on its own, this is […]

Replace worry with gratitude for added success

| November 10, 2015

Judy Pace Christie: Most of the people I encounter these days aren’t in the mood for a challenge. They are busy and tired, worried about their 401(k)s and credit cards and how secure their businesses or jobs really are. But maybe this is just the time for a challenge, the one I issue today – […]

Growing Home: Feminism Has Given Me An Adjective I Should Not Need

| November 9, 2015

Earlier this year, we moved to a new neighborhood. I love to garden and our kids adore playing outside. When the warm weather arrived, we spent many evenings in the front yard. I would often prune the boxwood hedge or pick weeds, and the kids would ride their bicycles up and down the sidewalk, or […]

Empowerment vs. Grace

| November 2, 2015

Feminism is based on empowerment which encourages the elevation of women by a ‘strength’ (read pride and self will) rooted in mankind. The strength of biblical womanhood is rooted and founded in Christ, alone. It is in Him we live and move and have our being. Acts 17:28. This is the first principle of religion. […]

MercatorNet: It shouldn’t be ground-breaking that women are not men

| October 26, 2015

[Editor’s note: In the end, our goal isn’t to achieve a purer form of feminism, but biblical femininity. This is an important distinction. This article is a rich and rewarding read otherwise. Enjoy!] The struggle to get more women into CEO jobs and boardrooms can seem like a puzzle where the pieces don’t quite fit […]

Well-Behaved Women Making History

| October 23, 2015

“Well-behaved women seldom make history.” It’s a common feminist slogan. The suggestion, however tongue-in-cheek, seems to be that for a woman to make headlines, turn heads, or alter the course of human events, it’s necessary for her to misbehave somehow, presumably as defined against the social norms of traditional patriarchal society. Like most propaganda, this […]

4 Reasons Modesty Empowers Women

| October 17, 2015

Empowering? I don’t think so. A study called “The Paradox of Declining Female Happiness” stated, “Women are less happy nowadays despite 40 years of feminism. Despite having more opportunities than ever before, they have a lower sense of well-being and life satisfaction.” Rather than jumping on board with our culture’s push to undress, I’m proposing […]

Challies: It’s Not Just A Guy Thing?

| October 14, 2015

Every guy has received a warning about “the second glance.” Here’s how it works: When you see an attractive woman, you are morally responsible for the second glance, not the first. Because you cannot help seeing what is there in front of you, the second glance is the one where you will display sin or […]

The Tale of Two Women

| October 3, 2015

By Kevin Swanson I must tell you the tale of two women. There was the first woman who was very neatly put together. She had inherited three generations of faith. Her great grandmother, her grandmother, and her mother were Christians. She had a very neat life. The furniture was covered, and she hardly ever sinned. […]

Emotional Maturity as a Young Woman with an Unbelieving Family

| October 1, 2015

By Mrs. S. B. H. E., Originally published here, Aug. 8, 2005 Purity is a concept that is intriguingly beautiful. When thinking of purity, a pure, white lamb comes to mind–one with no blemishes, flecks of dirt, or streaks of mud. While this concept so readily comes to mind, it does not as readily spring […]

| September 23, 2015

Are you a SAHM, home schooling, and/ or working hard on home-based entrepreneurship? Be glad, because you’re doing it right from the start. You have a lot to look forward to.

Holmes: How to Handle Your Spouse’s Sexual Past

| September 14, 2015

Long before I was even considering marriage, a Titus 2 woman shared with me the pain of confessing her sexual history to her future husband. “It was hard,” she told me. “We both cried. We both repented. It made us a stronger couple.” I remember being grateful for her openness with me, but also feeling […]
