The History of Feminism

| March 24, 2012

From Visionary Womanhood: There isn’t a woman alive today who has not been impacted and affected by the philosophy of feminism.  Feminism began as a small movement of radical extremists sharing their viewpoint on what they believe is true feminism.  Their view has become the norm in our culture today and has worked its way […]

Devoted to The Lord

| February 8, 2012

1 Corinthians 7:34-35: “An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the things of this world – how she can please her husband. I am saying this for your own good, […]

A Maiden Going to the Sacrifice

| December 13, 2011

I have been reading through J.R. Miller’s Homemaking lately, and I must say that it is one of the most poetically written books on the function of the home that I have ever read. The words in it are precious, and it makes my heart swell to feel the attitude of love this book was […]

Ecclesiastes reminds us of the brevity of each season in chapter three, verse one: “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” We are […]

How do we love thee? Let me count some ways…

| November 29, 2011

And here’s a superb follow-up to Dennis Prager’s piece — this from Femina: I have always found it remarkable that sometimes people think that being a homemaker is a somehow limiting occupation.

Does a full-time homemaker swap her mind for a mop?

| November 29, 2011

Dennis Prager wrote a great piece earlier this month about the myth that homemakers are trapped in narrow, confined, and intellectually limited lives: [J]ust a few weeks ago, the [Daily Kos] declared me a misogynist for my column on what I believe to have been four negative legacies of feminism for women. I actually wrote […]

Motherhood Is Application

| August 27, 2011

From Rachel Jankovic over at Desiring God: If I had to pick one word to describe motherhood, I think that word would be “transforming.” The days of a busy mother are made up of millions of transformations. Dirty children become clean, the hungry child fed, the tired child sleeping. Almost every task a mother performs […]

Rethinking feminism

| August 27, 2011

Students in women’s studies courses throughout the United States hear stories of “girl-meets-birth-control” or awakening the inner feminine mystique. But I’ve learned something else in my history class at a Christian college. We were reading a speech Adlai Stevenson gave at Smith College’s 1955 commencement. Stevenson, the Democratic presidential candidate in 1952 and 1956 (losing […]
