Surprise! It’s a Boy! (Who Are They Kidding, Part 2)

Some months ago I wrote about an American couple that decided to raise their child “gender neutral.” Little “Storm” (who looks like a boy to me, unless his parents are particularly broad-featured) doesn’t know if he/she is a boy/girl. But it turns out that our adventurous couple is behind the times. Five years ago a [...]

The Most Dangerous Person in the World

Recently we’ve all been appalled by the London riots and by the “flash mobs” of young folks that come out of nowhere to rob and assault people right here in the good old USA. What causes this behavior? In the case of London particularly, what would drive young people to literally burn down parts of [...]

Nobody Wants to Walk the Streets

First, I want to reassure anyone reading this that our blog is still alive. I spent half of July in Bolivia on a missions trip and the rest recovering, while my mother has directed all her energies to getting out the latest issue of Practical Homeschooling. That said, I witnessed true poverty for two weeks. [...]

Women “Choose” to Harm Women

You’d think any movement with the label “feminist” would be out for the good of women, wouldn’t you? Not so. I am becoming increasingly more aware of how the sexual promiscuity and other social issues of many vocal feminists stand in direct opposition to one of my life goals — to form and build a [...]

Gender Wars, Part 2: Eternal Value

So much of the gender war in this world is about people trying to prove that we are worth something—to others and to ourselves. The insecurities of the strong cause them to push down the weak, so that they can keep their strength. The insecurities of the weak cause them to undermine the strong, so that their weakness isn’t [...]

The Trusting Husband of Proverbs 31

In an article published in a 2009 issue of Practical Homeschooling, I pointed out that “patriarchy” is a bad word. The Christian home is supposed to revolve around Christ, not around Dad. However, Dad is a very important part of the Christian home. And we can find out a few forgotten facts about his character [...]

If Saudi Arabia Was Christian . . .

We would not be reading articles like this one: Saudi woman ‘raped by chauffeur’ as campaign to let both sexes drive gathers pace My very first post on this blog was about how Christianity leads to freedom for women – as compared to scenarios like this. Feminists fume about America’s “oppressive patriarchal culture”: welcome to [...]

“I Kissed Marriage Goodbye” – Rescuing the Frozen People

Many years ago, my magazine, Practical Homeschooling, featured a column by a teen homeschooler named Joshua Harris. Joshua went on to write a best-selling book, I Kissed Dating Goodbye, which he followed with a number of other titles on courtship, sexual purity, and church life. In I Kissed Dating Goodbye, Joshua confirmed what I and [...]

Humility for Young Women

Yes. So. As my mom and a lot of other moms have been discussing in the last few posts, many Christian women are having trouble finding a spouse who is passionately committed to God and shares a vision for homeschooling, world impact, or what-have-you. In fact, a great many cannot find (or be found by) [...]
