The most profound parenting quote I’ve ever heard is from Dan Allender: “One of the biggest sources of conflict between you and your kids is when they refuse to bow down to your idols.”

I dare you to cross-stitch that and give it to a friend at her baby shower.

Hurricane Harvey: Cajun Navy to the Rescue

August 30, 2017 | Author:

We’ve read about it again and again, honorable, self-sacrificing men hearing the call, who come in a time of need. The Cajun Navy is getting it’s well deserved press and we’d like to highlight them as well, especially since as one facebook user pointed out, this is the very thing feminists would have us consider to be toxic masculinity.

The Washington Post’s article, “In crises such as Harvey, you want outdoorsmen on your side” is a nice change to the the constant drivel, dishonoring otherwise quiet laboring supportive men who make this world a better place. Enjoy and retell the tale of good men in our time, growing in numbers, inspiring men to rise up and lead, protect, and provide. God bless them all.

Hurricane Harvey: God’s Faithfulness to a Courageous Mother

August 30, 2017 | Author:

Toddler Found Clinging to Dead Mother in Flood
A heartbreaking scene in Beaumont, Texas, where a shivering little girl was found clinging to her dead mother in floodwaters.

“…and they say [her pink backpack] sticking above the water and were able to get to them and pull them into the boat just before they went under that trestle. Had it been a few moments later they would of been sucked under and the boat wouldn’t have been able to get to them.”

A Texas toddler is stable condition after her mother sacrificed her life to keep her child from harm. Providentially, the toddler was found clinging to her mother and not a moment too soon. 41-year old Colette Sulcer died Tuesday after exiting her car that stalled in floodwaters; both she and her daughter were swept away, the Beaumont Police Department said in a statement.

There are so many heartbreaking stories coming out of the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. This one touched us, as have many, in that we can see once again God’s faithfulness to work out that end to which Colette Sulcer was fighting for. Life. Her daughter was spared by the merciful intervention of rescuers.

None can be plucked from His hand without His knowledge.

Desiring God: Should Moms Stay Home?

August 26, 2017 | Author:

I was a woman succeeding in a man’s world. I was very much “living the dream.” I loved Jesus and being a Christian, but my primary identity was “successful professional.” My work was the main source of my personal sense of affirmation and accomplishment. I could exercise control, see results on a regular basis, and be rewarded for it, both with recognition and compensation.

Many years later, it embarrasses me to see how much value I placed on man-centered achievement and applause. I was a sincere Christian with a growing relationship with Jesus, I was teaching my children about him with joy, but I had not yet learned to find my value and worth in him. And I had not yet learned which things have eternal value, and which will soon be forgotten.

…if you are working outside the home mainly because it makes you feel good about yourself, or because you really enjoy it, or because it seems more interesting, you may need to pray about whether this is really God’s call on your life — or whether selfish interests are guiding your decisions.

Lori Alexander: Does Your Home Look Loved?

August 26, 2017 | Author:

“…We finally met the man who owned this home and he said his mother used to live there but it was a rental now and the renters had destroyed it. He said there was an inch of mold in the refrigerator, they stole some of the carpet, and left the home a wreck. He told us that they were drug and alcohol addicts. Sin and Satan does this. They make things ugly and ruined.

God makes things beautiful and orderly. He makes us into new creatures and clothes us with white robes of righteousness. It’s our responsibility, women, to make our homes places of beauty and order.”

Mercatornet: How Women’s Equality becomes a pawn in workforce policy

August 12, 2017 | Author:

In Women Are Key for Future Growth: Evidence from Canada the International Monetary Fund recommends that Canada spend eight billion dollars annually on a daycare program that would pay for itself. The catch? Mothers must be forced to work. The authors reveal their political leanings early on, and hence their framing of the research.

In so many words, they are saying: Our purpose as human beings is not to find our own way, to make choices that serve our own objectives and to pursue personal self-fulfillment. Rather, our purpose is to work; earn an income; and to pay taxes to feed the Leviathan (to use Hobbes’ accurate term for the State). Oh, and most of us have one other function – as reproducers. That function is particularly important because it provides to the system ever more future workers who will pay more taxes to fatten up the already obese and highly intrusive State.

Kupferman: Will my granddaughter pay the price of my fight for equality?

August 8, 2017 | Author:

Photo credit @DailyMail

Sixties feminist Jeannette Kupferman sees the emotional emptiness facing women today.

The moment I held Amber Ann in my arms — just minutes after her birth — an unexpected cocktail of emotions nearly floored me; what can best be described as a mixture of unbridled joy mingled with apprehension.

the emotions were more complex and bittersweet than the straightforward joy I’d anticipated. Of course, for now we can hold her safe, nurture her talents and encourage her development — but what will her future hold?

Just that morning another headline had caught my eye about schoolgirls feeling pressured to sleep with boys before they are ready. Not to mention the endless stories about the increasing numbers of teenagers experiencing depression, self-harming, eating disorders, atrocious bullying, sexting and gender uncertainty.

It makes me wonder what happened to the Brave New World we’d envisaged for our daughters and granddaughters. A world of unlimited possibilities, choices and equality for girls to become or do anything?

Mercatornet: Jane Austen’s Marriage Challenge

July 21, 2017 | Author:

During the last couple of weeks, while Jane Austen fans have been paying tribute to the famous novelist on the 200th anniversary of her death, devotees of a very different type of fiction have been getting their fix of Game of Thrones, Season 7. From all accounts this television series has more dead bodies than a busy mortuary, making it incredibly popular for some reason. A trailer for the series that I came across had over 35 million views.

As one writer has observed, death is barely glimpsed in Austen’s six novels. Writing at a time when high infant mortality and common diseases made death a regular visitor even in the families of the gentry, claiming Austen herself at the age of 41, she never killed off a major character. Her concern is with life and the great institution that produces and nurtures it: marriage.

Despite the dramatic differences between her world and ours, it is about this subject that her stories have most to teach our age. The fact that ours has largely lost the plot about matrimony may even be the reason that stories like Pride and Prejudice continue to find an audience after all this time: courtship, marriage, intimacy, children, in that order: how novel!

Oregon Bill Legalizes Free Abortions For Nearly Any Reason

July 7, 2017 | Author:

In the past 14 years, according to state health records, already-expansive abortion laws dictated that almost $24 million in state funds were spent on more than 52,000 abortions.

The bill is also uniquely expansive in that, while some states allow for cost-free abortions that are deemed medically necessary, the Oregon bill allows for coverage of abortions for virtually any reason, including sex-selective and late-term abortions.

“What IS art? Is it merely an enjoyable way to express ourselves or receive personal gratification? Or is art much more?

Be encouraged to learn and understand the unique responsibility entrusted to you, and how to apply your artistic gifts for the glory of God by attending the first Reforming Arts Conference
