“The Woman’s Place”

| July 19, 2012

[Editor’s Note: This is a post from the original LAF site that I meant to bring over to the new one but forgot. After a couple of reader requests, I managed to locate the original file. This is excellent material and illustrates why robust biblical womanhood negates any “need” for feminism. Women are already “empowered” thanks […]

My Mother: Reflections on Mother’s Day

| May 13, 2012

My mother has had over three dozen children. She gave birth to two, but giving birth isn’t really what makes one a mother, is it? It’s the hard stuff. The stuff my mother has done over half her life, with little accolades and with no earthly payment. The mother-stuff. And the most important of her jobs? […]

A French Revolutionary Scolds Mothers

| May 13, 2012

On this day when we celebrate moms, it’s amazing there are women in the world who think motherhood is denigrating and without real worth: Simone De Beauvoir famously said that being a full-time mother should be illegal because too many women would enjoy it. Badinter does not advocate criminalizing motherhood. She just wants to keep […]

Rich Women and Emasculated Men

| April 9, 2012

From Suzanne Venker: There it was in the grocery store checkout line, in all its glory — a Time magazine headline: “The Richer Sex.” The article is a reprint from Liza Mundy’s new book of the same name. What does it mean? That women “are overtaking men as America’s breadwinners.” Ms. Mundy wants you to […]

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. Like there isn’t enough to do. Before I go on to some specific ideas, I’d like to just say a little something about […]

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. […]

Rethinking Childbirth

| August 31, 2011

Andrea Schwartz has a fantastic two-part series up on His Heartbeat for Women. Here are samples from each: Far from being a neutral area of life, the issues of labor and delivery, and the customary practices routinely followed, will either reflect the wisdom of God’s created order or they will reflect a humanistic makeover of […]

Don’t Revere the Pioneer

| March 7, 2011

Well, isn’t that an intriguing title?  And maybe not exactly what you expect at LAF.  After all, are we not often accused of “living in the past” of “clinging to the past,” even?  So what could an article like this be doing here? Now, let me start by saying that this is not an article […]

Redeeming Our Time as Daughters at Home

| November 30, 2010

What are practical ways we can redeem the years following the completion of our formal education and prior to marriage? How can we be extremely intentional as we prepare to be “keepers at home” (Titus 2:5); young women entering marriage capable of efficiently managing the affairs of our homes so that it can be said […]

Stay-at-Home Daughter Graduation

| November 22, 2010

Since I am approaching my “graduation” from stay-at-home daughterhood, as I will move on to my new career description as a stay-at-home wife in just a few months, I thought it would be beneficial to reflect on these past four years. The choice to live at home with one’s parents instead of going away to college or […]

Keepers of the Springs

| August 12, 2010

Women used to know the importance of being in the home. They realized the gravity of their roles of being a wife and mom and knew that abdicating their roles would most certainly not be good for the family. I personally know that I could not be the wife and mom that the Lord has […]
