I traded perfect for a house full of real

| April 21, 2015

By Lisa-Jo Baker at Surprised by Motherhood We are so quick to despair over our own dirty laundry – especially the grown up kind – and then assume so easily and quickly that those other moms at the playground has her life and her laundry together. We believe somewhere deep down in our sleep-deprived minds […]

“There is no stronger bond than that between mother and child”

| April 2, 2015

[Editor’s note: Primal bond, is obviously an evolutionary term we wouldn’t normally use here. God created a wonderfully amazing bond between mother and child and deserves the credit.] Last week the anniversary of an old injustice and the prospect of a new injustice came together and challenged us. March 21 was the second anniversary of […]

Stay-at-home Mums vs. Super-sized kids

| April 1, 2015

Every parent knows it’s tough getting kids to eat their greens. Even UK food writer Rose Prince claims to have been “quite undone by feeding children”, noting how easy it was for her mother, “a housewife in the classic sense”, to produce delicious from-scratch meals and keep a close watch on between-meal-snacking. By contrast, her […]

Synthetic Children, Spiritual Orphans, and the Obliteration of Mothers

| March 19, 2015

[Editor’s Note: One of the authors references evolution’s affect on survival due to parental bonds. We disagree with the premise that evolution exists. We do agree that family is key. Filial love is powerful as is the inherit nature which God designed that ties us to our parents, but more so than this is a […]

An Old Problem, a New Enemy: Why We Don’t Love Home

| February 24, 2015

I think often about that woman in the Bible, the woman hanging out in Proverbs 31, the model for a godly woman. She does many things, wears many hats. But one thing she does well, one thing is her priority: her home, husband and children. Her other pursuits fall around that. “She looks well to the […]

Three Parent Children, Germ Line Manipulation, and Designer Humans

| February 4, 2015

Today’s vote in Parliament in favour of allowing three parent children makes the UK the first country to cross internationally respected bioethical red lines. It does so first by allowing the creation of human beings using DNA from three human beings and secondly, by opening the door to germ-line gene modification. By altering the very […]

Raped, pregnant, and told to abort – My husband and I did this instead

| December 9, 2014

Back on the ship, I told the doctors an abbreviated version of my story, which resulted in me being quarantined. Suicide watch? In danger of a psychotic break that will have me running naked across the shuffleboard courts? Who knows. What I know is that I spent the next week listening to a team of […]

Olmstead: Don’t Disdain Stay-At-Home Moms

| November 28, 2014

“I have a secret disdain for people who stay at home.” Thus writes Dan Kois in an article for Slate, describing the ”stew of envy, disrespect, thankfulness, and resentment” he feels toward stay-at-home parents (mothers, more particularly). While he tries to give stay-at-home parents (SAHP’s) the benefit of the doubt in some instances, Kois’s article really boils down to this sentiment: […]

Unprepared for Motherhood: Thanks, Feminism!

| November 6, 2014

From Jessconnell.com On a recent post, I received this (wonderfully honest) comment:  “I must not be working hard enough, but I don’t remember feeling this same kind of exhaustion before kids. Nobody whines at work and quibbles constantly and interrupts my every task with the frequency of little kids. At work I did what I […]

When Sons are Grown and Gone

| October 20, 2014

By Barbara Rainey at Momlife Today A recent comment on our blog came from Elaine, who wrote to say: Right now the “when-then” in my life is “when our oldest son decides to include us in his life again, then I will be happy.” She wrote with an obvious sense of loss and pain over […]

Are the Kids Really Alright?

| October 14, 2014

Editor’s Note: You’ll probably get a headache reading this and the headache is case in point. We’re looking in the wrong place for answers (science), going to great lengths to do so, and as always looking at data after the fact. After the damage is done. Don’t be confused by the swap of terms, ‘data’ […]
