Harrhof: How Christians Should View Halloween

| October 28, 2017

“Beloved, do not IMITATE evil but IMITATE good.” — 3 John 1:11a Guest contributor, Kristine Harrhof When my kids put on their cow costume from our dress-up box, what’s the first thing they do? They get down on all fours and “moooo” like a cow. When they put on their astronaut costume, what’s the first move […]

Are You Wasting Your Life at Home?

Stay-at-home women, are you wasting your lives?

Desiring God: Contentment in Trials, How God Prepared Us for a Brain Tumor

| April 24, 2017

As God tests us, he wants us to test him, to see if he is as faithful as he promised. I undertook the job of writing a book on the subject of contentment, something that I have wanted to do for a very long time. Having learned so much from the Puritans Jeremiah Burroughs and […]

The American Vision: The blasphemous attack on unalienable rights of children

| October 1, 2016

Have you ever heard a parent tell a child, “I brought you into this world, and I can take you out”? We hear it many times, but probably don’t stop to think of the spirit of such a comment and what it means for our society. A nation comprised of parents who speak as if […]

Finding Abundance in Less – De-clutter Toys and Gain Perspective

| September 27, 2016

Allie Casazza was drowning. In toys. “I had this huge room in my house, dedicated to toys,” she told ABC News. “Bins overflowing with stuff. A $150 light-up unicorn no one played with. The playroom was the bane of my existence.” She describes a scene familiar to many moms. “I’d send the kids into the […]

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 […]

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 […]

By Chelsea Patterson Originally published Nov 21, 2007 God, I want to do great things for you, And speak to all the nations! God replies: That’s well and good, But for now Fix your children’s complications.

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 […]

Should Children Address Adults as Mr. and Mrs.?

| November 19, 2015

To this day (even at the age of 33) I address my friends’ parents by their last names, as do most of my friends. Because they are not our peers but our elders – and we were taught to show respect to our elders. So what changed? Why are children today taught differently? [Editor’s note: […]

Jamming with your toddler: how music trumps reading for childhood development

| November 4, 2015

Forget the Mozart Effect and Baby Einstein, take it easy on acquisitions for your two-year-old’s private library, and don’t fret if your three-year-old hasn’t started violin lessons just yet. The key to unlocking a child’s potential intelligence and happiness may indeed lie in music, but succumbing to the commercial juggernaut that is the baby-genius-making industry […]

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 […]

We Can’t Let The Family Die

| October 3, 2015

[Editor’s Note: From the archives but relevant as ever. If only we’d listen know, like we should have listened then. An excellent lesson on how feminism kills the family.] If the family fails, society breaks up, and there are many signs that this is happening. Britain may not lead the world in much, but we […]

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 […]

Time: 10 Pieces of Classical Music Your Children Will Love

| July 23, 2015

[Editor’s note: It’s the personal opinion of this editor that you can swap out Laurie Berkner permanently for any of these composers. No need to wait until summer. Make it part of every day life. Define the culture of your home before others do. No need to save your sanity if you never let it […]
