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 […]

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 […]

Hoover: That Time I Said I Don’t Like Women’s Ministry Events

| September 2, 2015

She’s been coming to our church for several years now, but I don’t know her well. I’ve talked with her several times, trying to draw out more than one-word answers, trying to find a subject that makes her come alive, but I still don’t know her beyond what her resume’ might tell. I think I […]

Watters: The Secret to Reaching Your Full Potential

| September 2, 2015

[Editor’s note: A must read. So very good!] Sometimes when our 6 year old objects to some limit we’ve placed on him and protests loudly with whining, my husband, Steve, will mimic his tone saying, “Teddy, imagine if I went to my boss like you’re doing and said, ‘Daaa-aaan, I don’t waaaaant to come in […]

Your Sacred Calling: A Christian Response to the Ashley Madison Scandal

| September 2, 2015

I haven’t written on my blog in a long time. To be frank, I just got tired of dealing with the antagonists. But I felt compelled to write today. Marriage is so precious. It’s not supposed to be something you’re stuck in; it’s something you’re supposed to be thankful for—something you get to enjoy! So there were […]

Mommy Trenches: To the Lady Ashamed of Being Pregnant with Her Fourth

| August 25, 2015

I met you in the elevator on my way back from the pediatrician’s office. It was just me and Wren, and you looked at her fondly in her stroller. When the elevator doors opened, you very kindly held the doors open for me. As I clumsily maneuvered the stroller past you, I accidentally ran over […]

Chad Ashby: Brothers and Sisters, Unwed Pregnancy Is Not a Sin

| August 19, 2015

There is a glaring hole in our fight against abortion. It is found in our churches among the quiet pre-service whispers as she walks by. It is heard at Sunday dinner as her name bounces back and forth across the table among interjections like, “But she comes from such a good family!” It is seen […]

Our Ministry of Mentoring

| August 17, 2015

By Natalie Klein “Mom, look! I got a letter from Allison!” Eyes wide, I careened to a stop against the kitchen counter, clutching my prize. The envelope was torn to pieces in my haste to open the treasure, but the card within I opened with care. At fourteen, receiving a letter from my mentor and […]
