Botkin Sisters: Should I Keep Preparing for Marriage?

| February 16, 2017

“I thought marriage was coming, and soon. I thought I gave up the worldly approach to womanhood in exchange for a beautiful biblical picture that included husband, children, a home to be a homemaker in. And something went wrong. I gave up the world’s picture in exchange for nothing. I have nothing to show for […]

Desiring God: 7 Ways To Pray On Election Day

| November 8, 2016

Father, we are an anxious and fearful people. For all of our bluster and bragging, we are so easily shaken.

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.

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.

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

“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
