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 […]

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 […]

End The Three-Month Wait For Sharing A Pregnancy

| August 28, 2014

The Duggar family, of reality TV fame, are rarely described as “brave.” They have 19 children (“and counting,” as the title of their reality show declares) and are thus objects of fascination if not scorn. Yet the seemingly mundane act from one of the bunch recently did, in a strikingly quiet way, demonstrate a bit […]

The surprising benefit of a stay-at-home mother

| August 13, 2014

Mothers are the great glue which binds society together. They organise, they volunteer, they nurture. And, when they are not around, you notice it. Look at any of those etiolated “communities” where every woman is a worker and you will see what I mean. But the bigger (and bitter) argument for stay-at-home mothers concerns children. […]

Strength in Weakness

| August 6, 2014

Excerpt from Queen of the Home: As you begin to grasp just how vitally important your role as the queen of your home is, it is easy to feel a bit overwhelmed. Building a nation, raising an army, training, guiding, guarding, loving, helping and nurturing—as well as changing diapers, washing dishes, wiping cute little noses, doing […]

An African woman’s “Thank-you” letter to Meriam Ibrahim

| July 29, 2014

by Obianuju Ekeocha The great news of Mariam Ibrahim’s arrival in Italy filled me with so much joy and elation. The images of this graceful and beautiful African woman, babe in hand, stepping out of the plane was a sight to behold especially after her unspeakable pain and suffering in the Sudanese prison. So I thought […]

You Have Too Many Children to Give Them What They Need

| July 28, 2014

Somewhere along the line, we created an imaginary set of rules about what kids need  for healthy development and if you’ll listen closely, you’ll hear it: “To love my children is to buy them things.” Suffice it to say, if love equals providing material comforts,  American children are the most well-loved children in the world. Ironically, they […]

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. Quite simply, the list measures, as Forbes shamelessly puts it, “money and fame”.  Calculating the in-crowd includes looking at earnings over the past year, as well as […]

Recovering the Glory of Motherhood

| June 30, 2014

Children! They take away from your free time, your “me” time, your money, your hobbies, your passions. Children hinder your ability to travel, to be spontaneous, and generally do whatever you want to do. They interrupt your conversations, your reading time, your TV time and your dinner time and even your sleeping time. This is […]

Commercialized surrogacy creates a second-class citizenry

| June 26, 2014

February 4, 2014 (ThePublicDiscourse.com) - Cuando yo crezca, voy a tener bebes por dinero. Igual que mi mama. When I grow up, I want to have babies for money. Just like my mom. The women most at risk of hearing these words are women of color, immigrant women, and women in developing countries: in other words, the most […]
