I remember a population that was terrified of falling into dependence on the state, because such dependence, apart from being unpleasant in […]

Out of the cave: Leading our Children Away from Celebrity Culture

| July 2, 2014

We are surrounded by images and messages that do not tell the truth about the good life. This week, Forbes released its annual top celebrities list, The Celebrity 100.

To the lady ashamed of being pregnant with her fourth

| June 2, 2014

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 […]

Unmarried Women And the Things of the Lord

| April 26, 2014

In my last article I tried to demonstrate how I believe I have discovered Scriptural support for stay-at-home daughterhood, not as a role that every unmarried woman must follow but as the Lord’s general preference for the daughters of intact covenant families. It should be said that my comments are directed primarily towards younger women […]

Is Stay-At-Home Daughterhood Biblical?

| April 8, 2014

It’s now a little over three years since I realised, much to my surprise, that the Lord was calling me to a productive life as a daughter at home. It was a bandwagon I’d never planned on joining. I was headed for a legal career, but then, over a period of six months, my future […]

Sloan, Lahl: Inconvenient truths about commercial surrogacy

| April 4, 2014

The Minnesota Senate and House are currently considering two separate bills to legalize commercial surrogacy in the state (S.F. 2627 and H.F. 291). This is occurring despite that similar legislation was defeated just last year and a bill similar to what has been proposed in the Senate was vetoed in 2008. One would think that […]
