Hope for Society Lies in Finding the Real Meaning of Home: Part 1

You CAN Stay Home Series: Living on One Income (Part 1)

  Aren't we spiritually schizophrenic, just like the psalmist, David? One minute we're shaking our fist at God, the next, we're repenting and praising Him for his sovereignty and provision.

Caution: Blood-Boiling, Feminist TRUTH Ahead

(I know it's a bit long...read it anyway.) Oh boy...after repeated accusations that I get my anti-feminist ideas from "pre-50's" literature and Google searches for "feminism is bad", I decided to do an open-minded search for these new claims of modern feminism.  The claims that "old feminism was hostile to men and family, but NEW feminism ...
