Note: I uncovered this post buried in my unfinished Drafts file. I can’t think of anything else to add, and I’m not sure what else I had planned, so I am just going to post it as is. It’s pretty self-explanatory. I am praying that this year’s (2010) homeschool conference, set for March, is free […]
As I have been studying this whole patriocentricity movement, I keep asking myself this question: What EFFECT does having one baby after another have on the mother? Often called Quiverfull or the Quiverfull movement, it is becoming more prevalent lately, particularly among homeschooling families. I well remember our “first round” of kids: My husband had two […]
To isolate students completely from the entire world is unhealthy! That isn’t to say we cannot INsolate them, but what that entails is giving them the tools to reach others while ALSO giving them the foundation and protection to work from.

Another disturbing and controversial issue is the one of militant fecundity, or extreme childbearing. First let me state that I am not against large families, even VERY large families. We are a family with six children, considered a large family by mainstream America. Not that we care what mainstream America thinks of our family. However, […]
I need to explain some of the beliefs which are so disturbing to me. This patriarchal movement is anything BUT Biblical theology. Since Doug Phillips and Vision Forum seem to be at the center of this movement, I will begin with his view of girls and women, using his words, and contrasting them with Scripture. […]
I’m not sure I am ready to stir up this bees nest and I think I am really late coming into this conversation controversy, but… In the nearly two weeks that have passed since my local homeschool conference, I haven’t been able to get the topics out of my mind. I have grown ever more […]
