MercatorNet: From Wall Street hot shot to wife and mother

| May 20, 2016

I am proud of my life now. I retired from a paying job but I am more active than ever in engaging in real life. I know it sounds trite, but I do think I have the most important job now as a wife and a mother. And, in all fairness, I am far from […]

Mercatornet: Infertility and Ignorance

| May 17, 2016

Feminism taught a us a different kind of womanhood all together. One that had little to do with how God designed women, and what His intended purposes are. Unfortunately, many women discover this truth far too late. As reported by the Chicago Tribune recently, a national survey of childless women in the USA aged 25-45 […]

Ungrind: Warrior Mama

| April 13, 2016

I love C.S. Lewis’ simple, yet profound depiction of spiritual warfare. “There is no neutral ground in the universe. Every square inch, every split second is claimed by God and counterclaimed by Satan.”11 So too is every square inch of motherhood. Read the rest here

TIC: The West’s War on Children

| March 22, 2016

Children are the center of any reasonably healthy society. Child-rearing is at the center of any reasonably healthy civilization…We currently inhabit a society in which more people die than are allowed to be conceived and survive until birth. Such a society is fundamentally different, including in its child-centrism, from one in which new life is […]

Why Be Happy?

| February 22, 2016

Prager University give us a big clue as to why feminism will never make us happy. Happiness is at it’s core selfless. Our happiness affects others profoundly, that’s why happiness is a moral obligation. We cannot be guided by feelings because it is how we act that affects others not how we feel. Don’t inflict […]

Helping Children Identify With Christ

| December 26, 2015

A good one from Visionary Womanhood, I used to pray my kids would grow up to do great things for God. I grew up and didn’t do anything great for God, but maybe my role was to be the MOTHER of people who did great things for God. So I prayed for that. What my […]

Challies: Homemaking in the Light of Eternity

| December 8, 2015

They say it is only what you do in this life that matters. They say that you need to full-out live your dash, that little line that will someday appear on your gravestone to represent the time between the day you were born into this world and the day you died out of it. And […]

Why modern motherhood is so much harder than it ought to be

| December 1, 2015

All around me, young mothers are stretched, and stressed, and struggling. Mommy burnout is rampant. And while, I’m sure that to some extent, it’s always been hard to manage a house full of young children, I also have a sneaking suspicion that it’s worse today, that the women of modern generations face handicaps our foremothers […]

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 […]
