Don’t Waste Your Time Raising Children

| October 7, 2014

Another great one from Kelly at Generation Cedar I think I finally agree with the feminists that raising children is a waste of time. After all, anyone really can do it. So why not let a paid day care worker handle the messes, settle the squabbling, feed the babies, change the diapers and keep them happy so you can do something […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Day I Stopped Saying ‘Hurry Up’

| March 31, 2014

When you’re living a distracted life, every minute must be accounted for. You feel like you must be checking something off the list, staring at a screen, or rushing off to the next destination. And no matter how many ways you divide your time and attention, no matter how many duties you try and multi-task, […]

Don’t Teach Conclusions

| March 8, 2014

By Andrea Schwartz at www.wordsfromandrea.com “It needs more than ever to be stressed that the best and truest educators are parents under God. The greatest school is the family. In learning, no act of teaching in any school or university compares to the routine task of mothers in teaching a babe who speaks no language […]

Sturdy Womanhood- The Story of a Mother

| February 26, 2014

When I was growing up, my Mom worked a lot. She was a hair dresser during the day and waited tables at night. Sometimes, she had three jobs. That was life. She was divorced, buried her oldest son and she worked. My Mom never walked around saying being a Mom was hard. Life was hard, but she didn’t walk […]

Orphans’ Lonely Beginnings Reveal How Parents Shape A Child’s Brain

| February 26, 2014

How much does the spiritual affect the physical? Psalm 31:10 tells us that strength fails and bones are consumed because of iniquity. It seems science is showing us that the love of Christ that parents give their children both through love and lawful and appropriate chastisement, benefits their souls and their bodies. Note how the […]

The Family Economy in Crisis

| April 17, 2013

A must-read: The family has disintegrated in the 21st century. This is the inescapable conclusion of many of today’s social indicators. With 41% of children born into homes without fathers,[1] half of marriages ending in divorce,[2] and the shack-up rate seven times what it was in 1970,[3] the nuclear family now makes up less than half of American […]

The truth about big families

| April 9, 2013

This is a fun one from Mercatornet: The Sydney Morning Heraldrecently reported that “less than 2 per cent of Australian women have six or more children.” Well, I must know so many of that two per cent. I know families of 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and a few with an even dozen. Whenever there […]

After Steubenville: 25 Things Our Sons need to know about Manhood

| March 20, 2013

From the gifted Ann Voskamp of A Holy Experience–the best thing I’ve read on this terrible crime: When you’re the mother of four sons, Steubenville is about us. Steubenville is about having a conversation with sons about hard things and asking you to do holy things. Because a Steubenville doesn’t begin with football and it doesn’t begin […]

Family structure: it’s an education in itself

| January 30, 2013

From Andrea Mrozak over at Mercatornet: Improving education outcomes is a goal for schools and ministries of education all over the world. And so it should be, since they are linked to a host of other advantages, especially in a knowledge-based economy. It will be interesting to note, then, whether those who desire these improvements […]

The Secret to Mothering With Patience

| August 26, 2012

My biggest discouragement as a mother is my own lack of self-control and the constant reminder in my attitude of my sinfulness. What I desire? To parent with all gentleness and grace, facing each challenge with a gospel-lesson. Reality? Not always that. But if we ask, then listen, the Lord speaks. And He says to me, as […]

Provision

| May 5, 2012

This is a subject I wanted to touch upon when I wrote my last post, but time simply did not permit, so here I am now. The skeptical question of “how can you afford so many children?” is often simply answered by, “God provides,” and this, in return, gets a lot of raised eyebrows. “Don’t you […]
