Keepers of the Springs

By Peter Marshall Originally published, May 29, 2003 Once upon a time, a certain town grew up at the foot of a mountain range. It was sheltered in the lee of the protecting heights, so that the wind that shuddered at the doors and flung handfuls of sleet against the window panes was a wind whose fury was spent. High up in the hills, a … Continue reading Keepers of the Springs

Lies vs. Truth – Spiritual Preparation for Birth

I thought we were very prepared for the birth of our first child. I paid close attention to what I ate, I exercised up to the morning I went into labor and took natural childbirth classes. We were educated and prepared mentally and physically. Sadly, I had not given a single thought to the spiritual aspect of labor. When I got into active labor, fear … Continue reading Lies vs. Truth – Spiritual Preparation for Birth

Growing Home: Feminism Has Given Me An Adjective I Should Not Need

Earlier this year, we moved to a new neighborhood. I love to garden and our kids adore playing outside. When the warm weather arrived, we spent many evenings in the front yard. I would often prune the boxwood hedge or pick weeds, and the kids would ride their bicycles up and down the sidewalk, or kick a ball around with Daddy. It didn’t take long … Continue reading Growing Home: Feminism Has Given Me An Adjective I Should Not Need

MercatorNet: It shouldn’t be ground-breaking that women are not men

[Editor’s note: In the end, our goal isn’t to achieve a purer form of feminism, but biblical femininity. This is an important distinction. This article is a rich and rewarding read otherwise. Enjoy!] The struggle to get more women into CEO jobs and boardrooms can seem like a puzzle where the pieces don’t quite fit together.  Juggling pressured work and young children can seem like … Continue reading MercatorNet: It shouldn’t be ground-breaking that women are not men

Mercatornet: Celibate mothers carry forward the sexual revolution

[Editor’s note: Feminist doctrine is predicated upon fear which can create a female-only comfort zone, which, ironically, isn’t really all that comfortable. No one can live without love. The self imposed solitary confinement is sustained by concessions and substitutions. Live with a man? Fine, but don’t marry him.  Lesbianism? that’s okay. Make children out of your pets? That’s okay. Got the cash and was a child? That’s okay! As long … Continue reading Mercatornet: Celibate mothers carry forward the sexual revolution

Homosexual Parenting Results Swept Under the Carpet

Australian research from the 1990s has emerged as key evidence in the debate about same-sex parenting. The constant refrain from supporters has been that there is no difference in outcomes for children in traditional marriages or same-sex couples. In 2010 Judge Vaughn Walker struck down a voter-approved constitutional referendum in California, partly because he found no sociological evidence of a difference. He put the conventional … Continue reading Homosexual Parenting Results Swept Under the Carpet

Moses’s sister was resolute and resourceful, ready to save her helpless sibling and point Pharaoh’s daughter in the right direction. Moses’s adoptive mother was powerful and full of pity, a beautiful picture of human compassion and common grace. Read the rest here Continue reading TGC: Dear Moms, You Do More Than You Know

MercatorNet: The Joys of Parenting

There are some great conclusions here. One, it’s feminism making women unhappy not children. We can’t have it all. In our arrogance and pride we’ve bought into the idea that we can fill both a man and woman’s roles, sometimes even at the same time, sometimes through delaying our calling and life work of motherhood until we’ve made our way without men. The reference to … Continue reading MercatorNet: The Joys of Parenting
