Unloosed!

| November 17, 2013

A powerful post on motherhood from Rachel Jankovic at Femina: The strongest women in our world today are those who are as a group feeling the weakest.

The home is a seminary of infinite importance. It is important because it is universal, and because the education it bestows gives color to the whole texture of life. The things said there give bias to character far more than do sermons, lectures, newspapers, and book. No other teachers have acknowledged the divine right to [...]

The Hand That Rocks the Cradle Blessings on the hand of women! Angels guard its strength and grace, In the palace, cottage, hovel, Oh, no matter where the place; Would that never storms assailed it, Rainbows ever gently curled; For the hand that rocks the cradle Is the hand that rules the world. Infancy’s the [...]

The Difference Between Obstinacy And Firmness

| October 19, 2011

The Difference Between Obstinacy And Firmness To stand by error, and the truth refuse; To close the eyes against unwelcome light; The crooked paths, through prejudice, to choose; For one’s own will, and thoughts, and ways to fight; To fear to have the sleeping conscience stirred, By letting in truth’s quick and searching ray; When [...]

Encouragement and Exhortation for Young Mothers from an Older Woman

| August 5, 2011

From Michelle at “She Looketh Well” : I suspect you might poo-poo what I am writing to you about because I did for years. I always had to do and do and do. I wasn’t doing enough. I was selfish or lazy. Learning all I have about our health, namely our adrenal glands, I now [...]

Calm in a Storm: How to Stay Peaceful While Childrearing

| August 5, 2011

From Lea Ann Garfias over at LAF: I have not always felt “quiet confidence” in rearing little dynamos.  To the contrary, I was fairly certain my first toddler was destined for juvie.  He began several mornings in a row by shaking his little fist in my face, declaring, “I will not obey you today, Mommy!”  [...]

Remember the Little Things

| August 4, 2011

Important reminders from my sister Clara:  It’s so easy to rush through them in an effort to get to “the things that matter”. We hurry the kids through breakfast so  we can “get on with the day”; we count down the minutes til naptime so we can “get something done” while they sleep. We tell [...]

Motherhood as a Mission Field

| August 4, 2011

An excellent reminder from Rachel Jankovic: If you are a Christian woman who loves the Lord, the gospel is important to you. It is easy to become discouraged, thinking that the work you are doing does not matter much. If you were really doing something for Christ you would be out there, somewhere else, doing [...]
