I’m guilty.  As a mother of one boy and three girls, I admit that I cringe and have to turn away when my husband is rough with my son.   Just the other day we went down to the river with another family who has five boys and one girl to cook hotdogs, enjoy the scenery, and let the kids get dirty.  Good clean fun!  Or rather, good, messy, fun.  I don’t know about your husband, but with mine and my friend’s husband, when you mix water and dirt and four-wheelers and campfires….there shall be...

 Honour widows that are widows indeed …she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day.   (1 Timothy 5:3, 5). Widows were a prominent figure in the epistles as well as the early apostolic churches of the 1st through 3rd centuries.  The Bible encourages special honor be given to these godly women of the church, and their role became more and more organized and formalized in the early...

Have you ever wondered about this book?  Nancy Campbell’s book has been reprinted 5 times.  It has become a mainstay in the Quiverfull ideology, however, I’m not sure it’s in print currently. It is not for sale even on her own website.  I got mine used.  The main premise of the book is obvious, that God’s first and primary command is to be fruitful and multiply.  This means to her that any and all prevention or modification of conception...

Yesterday it seemed like my children were in trouble all day long.  It was a long day.  I wondered if I’m doing this right.   Are my expectations too high?  Have I not expected enough?  I want to believe that my own parenting style is fine because I can see parents who are more permissive than I on the one hand, and on the other hand I can see parents who are more overbearing than I am.  So I must be ok, right?  In light of the so called...
