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’ […]

We’re All Just Women… Ordinary, Everyday Kinda Women.

| October 9, 2014

By Deborah over at Building A Family That Will Stand We can’t do it all in our own strength.  We simply can’t. From time to time, I’ve had someone or another tell me how wonderful I am, what an example to others, that I have it all together.  Makes me cringe. Every…single…time. I’m so well aware of […]

Don’t Waste Your Time Raising Children

| October 7, 2014

Another great one from Kelly at Generation Cedar I think I finally agree with the feminists that raising children is a waste of time. After all, anyone really can do it. So why not let a paid day care worker handle the messes, settle the squabbling, feed the babies, change the diapers and keep them happy so you can do something […]

Mom Refuses Abortion After Her Water Breaks at 16 Weeks. Her Baby Survives!

| September 28, 2014

Mother Katy Evans was only 16 weeks pregnant when her waters unexpectantly broke. When she and her husband arrived at the hospital she was diagnosed with preterm pre-labor rupture of membranes, a condition that caused amniotic fluid to drain from her womb. Doctors told Katy and her husband that their precious baby had only a […]

Theology which Confronts the Sexual Revolution and Moral Upheaval

| September 23, 2014

By Albert Mohler Western society is currently experiencing what can only be described as a moral revolution. Our society’s moral code and collective ethical evaluation on a particular issue has undergone not small adjustments but a complete reversal. That which was once condemned is now celebrated, and the refusal to celebrate is now condemned. What […]

Breaking the Silence: Redefining Marriage Hurts Women Like Me – and Our Children

| September 22, 2014

The push to present a positive image of same-sex families has hidden the devastation on which many are built. We must stand for marriage—and for the precious lives that marriage creates. Every time a new state redefines marriage, the news is full of happy stories of gay and lesbian couples and their new families. But […]

Mentoring 101 – The Titus 2 Role Explained

| September 18, 2014

From the Christian Pundit “Mentoring is so American,” a friend from another country told me. We were talking about older women mentoring younger women, and she had a different take on it than most people around me. “Where I’m from, people would never do it. They just take part in the life of the church […]

An Evangelical Defense of Traditional Marriage

| September 13, 2014

This piece is a response to an op-ed by Brandan Robertson on Time.com Tuesday, “Evangelicals for Marriage Equality: The Story Behind Our Launch.” I eagerly await the young evangelical that finally convinces me that the Bible and human history are wrong on marriage and that justice requires that both Christianity and society bestow marriage on […]

| September 9, 2014

Almost 900 medical professionals have now signed the Dublin Declaration on Maternal Health, launched in 2012 to declare that abortion is not needed to save women’s lives. Unveiled at the International Symposium on Maternal Healthcare in Dublin, Ireland, the Declaration states: “As experienced practitioners and researchers in obstetrics and gynaecology, we affirm that direct abortion – the […]

7 Important Things Slate Misses In Its Attack On Home-Cooked Meals

| September 5, 2014

Editor’s note: We’re not advocating feminism with this piece. I suppose that is obvious but just in case you are new here, to point number 4, no feminism at all is a dandy solution. Amanda Marcotte, a feminist who blogs at Slate’s XX, wrote an article headlined “The Tyranny of the Home-Cooked Family Dinner.” You […]

Is Marriage a Form of Prostitution?

| September 5, 2014

By Angela Shanahan at Mercatornet The tired old ideas of ageing feminists are being discredited by a younger generation. When I heard that an Australian social commentator called Jane Caro had compared “traditional” marriage to prostitution on the popular TV program Q&A, I thought, “Oh, here we go again!” That trope of feminist literature is almost as […]
