| July 3, 2014

THEODORE DALRYMPLE’s observations of Great Britain (which he recently shared at Hillsdale College) are sadly true of America as well: “. . . the notions of dependence and independence have changed [in Britain]. 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 […]

I’ve been trying to put my finger on what, exactly, is so appealing about Prince William, Dutchess Kate, and Prince George’s royal tour Down Under. There is the usual. Her amazing wardrobe and corresponding poise. His dapper looks. The stunning scenery of New Zealand vineyards or Australian metropolises. Baby George’s chubby cheeks. Yes, all that. […]

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 […]
