Quiverfull: Where are all the unhappy quiverfull mothers?
BIRTHING GOD’S MIGHTY WARRIORS
Re-examines our ideas about birth control.
God’s people were never supposed to use it.
But with the introduction of the birth control pill in 1960 and its blessing by the World Council of Churches in 1961, Protestant ministers and their wives jumped on the birth control bandwagon. Their action lead many of God’s people to accept a lifestyle of family planning. Twenty-five years ago in the mid 1980’s home-schoolers revived the no birth control belief and today the movement has broadened to tens of thousands of couples.
Basically rethinking birth control has gone mainstream.
Those of us who are quiverfull know that quiverfull mothers are some of the happiest because we are birthing and raising our children. It’s a shame the liberal press is attempting to portray us as a bunch of “uneducated breeders” being forced to go along with dictatorial husbands. My husband is one of the nicest guys in the world, hardly a dictator and I am a college educated women. If this were true of other quiverfullers then there’s got to be some unhappy women out there!! RIGHT?
It’s been 25 years now. A lot of women have become quiverfull. Some of their sons and daughters are grown and are becoming quiverfull. Surely in 25 years time given the internet, youtube, blogs, books, cult watching scandals, religion in the news and the ease of information in our press wouldn’t a large group of women have spoken out by now?
THE TRUTH IS: They’re not out there!
Letting God give us children makes mothers happy and after twenty five years quiverful mothers are some of the happiest!
