First Things: In Moral Labor

| November 28, 2015

“What we need is an evaluation that makes sense of both biology and experience. Poor thinking about childbearing obscures important aspects of what it means to be human. Technology has changed childbearing, not only for women employing cutting-edge medical techniques but also for “routine” pregnancies…Philosophical sources, premodern and current, can contribute to this, as can […]

Keepers of the Springs

| November 23, 2015

By Peter Marshall Originally published, May 29, 2003 Once upon a time, a certain town grew up at the foot of a mountain range. It was sheltered in the lee of the protecting heights, so that the wind that shuddered at the doors and flung handfuls of sleet against the window panes was a wind […]

Lies vs. Truth – Spiritual Preparation for Birth

| November 16, 2015

I thought we were very prepared for the birth of our first child. I paid close attention to what I ate, I exercised up to the morning I went into labor and took natural childbirth classes. We were educated and prepared mentally and physically. Sadly, I had not given a single thought to the spiritual […]

Growing Home: Feminism Has Given Me An Adjective I Should Not Need

| November 9, 2015

Earlier this year, we moved to a new neighborhood. I love to garden and our kids adore playing outside. When the warm weather arrived, we spent many evenings in the front yard. I would often prune the boxwood hedge or pick weeds, and the kids would ride their bicycles up and down the sidewalk, or […]

MercatorNet: It shouldn’t be ground-breaking that women are not men

| October 26, 2015

[Editor’s note: In the end, our goal isn’t to achieve a purer form of feminism, but biblical femininity. This is an important distinction. This article is a rich and rewarding read otherwise. Enjoy!] The struggle to get more women into CEO jobs and boardrooms can seem like a puzzle where the pieces don’t quite fit […]

Mercatornet: Celibate mothers carry forward the sexual revolution

| October 13, 2015

[Editor’s note: Feminist doctrine is predicated upon fear which can create a female-only comfort zone, which, ironically, isn’t really all that comfortable. No one can live without love. The self imposed solitary confinement is sustained by concessions and substitutions. Live with a man? Fine, but don’t marry him.  Lesbianism? that’s okay. Make children out of your pets? That’s okay. Got […]

Homosexual Parenting Results Swept Under the Carpet

| September 26, 2015

Australian research from the 1990s has emerged as key evidence in the debate about same-sex parenting. The constant refrain from supporters has been that there is no difference in outcomes for children in traditional marriages or same-sex couples. In 2010 Judge Vaughn Walker struck down a voter-approved constitutional referendum in California, partly because he found […]

Moses’s sister was resolute and resourceful, ready to save her helpless sibling and point Pharaoh’s daughter in the right direction. Moses’s adoptive mother was powerful and full of pity, a beautiful picture […]

MercatorNet: The Joys of Parenting

| August 27, 2015

There are some great conclusions here. One, it’s feminism making women unhappy not children. We can’t have it all. In our arrogance and pride we’ve bought into the idea that we can fill both a man and woman’s roles, sometimes even at the same time, sometimes through delaying our calling and life work of motherhood […]

AiG: The Evolution of Childbirth?

| August 15, 2015

Editor’s note: I love this. It flies in the face of a Brave New World and the direction feminism is taking to foster fear and the delay of child birth. Sara Sklaroff’s “The Evolution of Childbirth—A Horror Story” reflects the secular worldview that says evolution “designed” the supposedly inferior process of human birth. Sara Sklaroff’s […]

| August 6, 2015

By Aime Ladd, Originally published here May 7, 2005 Many of the recent articles on barrenness have inspired me to share the story of my salvation, my empty womb, and the wonderful plan God had for my life. When my husband, Bryan, and I met, fell in love, and married, we were not Christians. We […]

| July 8, 2015

By Betty Burger, originally published August, 19, 2003 A couple of days ago I was busily at work in the kitchen when my four-year-old son called, “Mommy…Mommy? Can you set up Memory for Aunt Peggy and me so we can play? Is that all right with you, Mommy? It would give you something to do.” […]
