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 […]

| November 18, 2013

By Jani Ortland with comments by Scott Brown. Here is a wonderful article by Jani Ortlund on what the most important parental priority is.  She says, “Let’s become women who value and pass on God’s Word! How do we help children revere and feast on the most influential book of all time? No book has sold more copies, in […]

Nudity and the Christian Worldview

| February 6, 2012

From an excellent piece by Robin Phillips: Given the premium the Bible places on modesty, one would expect Christians to reject public displays of nudity on television. Sadly, however, millions of Christians have come to treat sex scenes as a normal and accepted part of their viewing habits, especially if it is only one scene […]

Would you like lies with that?

| January 15, 2012

This excellent piece came recommended by a reader in Australia: Why is it that all the things that taste so sumptuously savoury and sweet are bad for me? Why is it that a soft fatty camembert or an extra-bitey mature cheddar is so harmful to my heart? I thought that maturity was a good thing. […]

From My Heart to Yours–The Lord Has Taken Away

| January 15, 2012

From Families Alive comes this heart-wrenching but beautiful post: Susan…accident…waterfall…fatal. The words hit like a ton of bricks. Tears streaming down my face. Kids questioning, “Mom, what’s wrong?” My heart screamed, No, God – this can’t be right! There must be some mistake! There was no mistake. That family vacationing in Maui went from celebrating […]

If I Could Only Be Like Her

| December 27, 2011

This is a wonderful post I just discovered this evening: We all know her. She is the woman who has it all together. She has the love of 1 Corinthians 13 down pat and she never falters. She always smiles at her husband and is his constant encouragement. She is gentle and kind and practices […]

“Women, Stop Submitting to Men”

| December 6, 2011

This is an excellent piece that digs down to the fundamentals. We get a lot of funny comments from readers who think we believe women are inferior, must kowtow to all men, should remain uneducated, etc., etc., ad nauseum. Here’s the plain truth, demonstrating that the shoe is (sadly) on the other foot in our […]

Where Are The Titus 2 Women?

| October 18, 2011

A great piece from the Joy-Filled Days blog: Last night I spoke to a sweet group of home schooling moms about the topic of Keeping Your Devotional Life Devotional. I was so encouraged by their desire to teach their children God’s word. We sat and chatted afterwards and as we spoke, the “topic” came up. […]

10 Reasons Why the New NIV is Bad for Women

| September 20, 2011

From Mary Kassian: The new gender-inclusive NIV was published earlier this year. It contains thousands of changes to the Bible’s male-gendered language. Having a gender-inclusive Bible appears to be the latest trend amongst cutting-edge, cappuccino-slurping Christian hipsters. Don’t get me wrong. I like to be hip. And I enjoy cappuccino as much as the next […]

Why Me? (and other musings on the theory of pity parties)

| September 17, 2011

Shelby Courtney has written a wonderful post about walking away from a me-centered mindset and learning to look at life through Christ’s lens: WHY?  Why does it always have to be me?  Why can’t I get to spread happy news about myself, and somebody else get to experience the joy that comes with only having […]

Pat Robertson on Divorcing Alzheimer’s Victims

| September 17, 2011

This one left us reeling. It has to be seen to be believed. From Doug Phillips’s blog: The eugenic mindset is this—when people become a burden or when they don’t meet the standard approved by the elite for human acceptability, simply dispose of them. The eugenic mindset plays upon the fears and selfishness of individuals. […]

Education Choices are Not Neutral

| September 9, 2011

A thought-provoking post from Doug Phillips’s blog: Educational methodology, or pedagogy, is not neutral. For thousands of years, men have debated over educational methodology. All of these debates have centered around issues like “What is the true nature of the child?”; “What are the true goals of education?”; “What is the role of the state […]

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 […]

The Moral of the Story…Is There One?

| August 27, 2011

There’s a thoughtful, cogent piece on so-called “narrative ethics” by Sarah Flashing over at The Center for Women of Faith in Culture: “Christianity isn’t a list of rules, it’s a relationship” is how the cliché goes and I’ve never been very fond of it. While I agree that Christianity is about the transformative power of […]
