Survival for Tired Moms

| June 27, 2014

From Charlotte Siems at This Lovely Place If a good night’s rest seems like a faraway dream, welcome to motherhood. The season of having little ones sometimes seem to require more of us than we have to give. Having “been there, done that” for about 25 years, I get the feeling of desperation that sometimes […]

On Not Being a Victim

| June 24, 2014

EXCELLENT, must read post from Femina:  The word submission, on its own, holds no moral value whatsoever. Submission could be noble, submission could be treacherous. It all depends. So as we teach our daughters to “be submissive,” the ever-important question is “submissive to whom?” And the only no-fail answer to that question is “God.” We teach […]

Raising a Generation of Wimpy and Selfish Women

| June 24, 2014

From Kathy Brodock at Teaching Good Things: Our hearts are easily deceived. Our hearts are selfish and want only to be happy… in love with life. We want a taste of heaven here on earth and we will do what we need to to get it. We will even pick our favorite Bible verses to […]

I Signed Up For This

| January 16, 2014

Excellent reminders from Mrs. Gore’s Diary: Motherhood is HARD, yes, but it doesn’t have to be dreary and droopy. Chin up, buttercup. Shoulders back. Turn that frown upside down. Swallow those sorrowful sighs. Choose joy, because even on the hardest days, it is still exactly that: a choice. Laugh at today and all the days to […]

Motherhood and the Paradox of Dying to Live

| January 15, 2014

Don’t miss this powerful post from Bambi at In the Nursery of the Nation: Motherhood is work many times.  But work isn’t some terrible Christian duty we can’t enjoy.  It is our duty but when we empty ourselves for others, the Lord fills us up…with replenishments of strength, joy, creativity and more.  That way we have it to give all over again…to which […]

Physician Wholeheartedly Gives Up Medical Practice to Be a Wife and Mother of Eight Children for the Glory of God!

| March 21, 2011

This is a wonderfully inspiring testimony from a woman who gave up the temporary prestige of a career for the noble and eternal work of a wife and mother: This is not a story that the feminists want you to hear. Despite their appeals for a women’s choice, the idea that and “intelligent, educated, woman” would […]
