Viewed: The Monstrous Regiment of Women – (part 3)

I don’t generally comment about films, movies or books all that often for the sole reason that there is often great misunderstanding when one recommends a book or movie – especially when the recommendation is for only a portion of a book or movie and not the entirety. I’m...

Viewed: The Monstrous Regiment of Women (part 2)

 As I watched the Gunn Brothers film, The Monstrous Regiment of Women, I was encouraged or inspired by the courage it took to write and produce the film. It’s quite a risk, in this day and age, to stand for the truth and to make bold statements that will...

Viewed: The Monstrous Regiment of Women (part 1)

We ordered, received and have now watched “The Monstrous Regiment of Women” and I thought it needful to make a few observations along with my recommendation to order this film yourselves and watch with your *older* children – read: older, mature, and sensible (not young children). I have very...

This might seem to be practically a nothing about nothing post… but, there really is something: loving concern for mothers and babies and new parents. Wes snapped this pic in Canada… and I told him I wish this were prevalent here in the States. I wish even the ‘thought’...

Reason numer 777 to Homeschool

 I’ve read a bit more about SB777 since I commented on it a couple of days ago. And surely, since I received a strong negative comment here (which I sincerely appreciated, btw). And I’ve had more time to mull over the potential consequences or outworkings of the bill/law. I’m...

The Monstrous Regiment of Women

I’m looking forward to watching this film… for many years, my heart’s desire has been to encourage women to be women as God designed, not feminist, but feminine; so that, in the end, the Word of God is not blasphemed. The film? The Monstrous Regiment of Women. See a...

Palindromes

    I think palindromes are cool and have lots of fun looking for creative palindromes – but especially fun are long ones that also make sense! The easiest way to teach children to spot palindromes is to start with words they know… Pop, Mom, Dad, Tat… the, eventually...
