I enjoyed this article “Seven Times I Relented to My Husband As A Proud Submissive Wife” and could relate to a lot of the situations she mentioned. Thanks to my husband, I don’t have an ugly Tattoo, I am organized, I am better with money and am homeschooling my eldest with an incredible curriculum- when I was leaning towards unschooling. Here’s an excerpt that hit home:

in all these examples I mention trusting the right intentions of my husband. Because immediately after that submission verse, the Bible gives the husband a directive too: “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.” (Ephesians 5:25)

If you trust the Bible, you have to believe that marital love isn’t like the love we see in the movies, the kind that is only good while you’re happy. You have to believe that marital love is sacrificial love to the extreme. Selflessness is at the heart of this kind of love. It’s been called the greatest human virtue and marriage is the greatest opportunity to learn it.

Submission is the unique method the Bible gives for women to learn it, respecting their men without trying to control them, just as sacrificial love is the unique method the Bible gives for men, putting their women’s needs above their own.

in retrospect trusting my husband’s decisions seems easy, I mean I knew he wanted the best for me so why worry?But it was hard to trust! It was hard to set aside my emotions and opinions to hear his, and respect his authority. I am ever so thankful that I did though!

This one made me laugh and for any family who is reading this and knows our conversation last weekend, you’ll know why.

But she never did shoot the man she loved… she married her husband when she was 16 and they were married 50 years.  He passed away only 18 days after her death.   At 15, with her family struggling financially after her father’s death, she managed to pay off her mother’s mortgage by shooting game and selling it to the local shopkeeper.  When she and her husband joined a vaudeville show and the other women were dressing in burlesque, she preferred to wear conservative dresses and let her shooting do the talking.  For a while after her career ended she gave shooting lessons to women.

The way society seems to be getting more dangerous, I’m beginning to think she’s right…..

The New Hampshire Executive Council voted 3-2 vote to deny a  $639,000 contract with Planned Parenthood of Northern New England.

This is from the Washington Times. (H/T ECM)


The New Hampshire vote, coming over the objections of Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan, comes as the latest example of the backlash against Planned Parenthood following the release of five undercover videos raising alarm over the organization’s involvement in the trade of fetal organs from abortions.

[…]The Republican-controlled New Hampshire Executive Council denied state funding by turning down a $639,000 contract with Planned Parenthood of Northern New England.

[…]At least 10 other states have reacted by launching investigations, but New Hampshire is not one of them. The executive council’s decision to deny state funding to Planned Parenthood came after Ms. Hassan refused calls to look into the group’s practices regarding fetal tissue.

The governor has said there…

Cooking with food allergies – BLAH!

Thanks to food allergies that have developed amongst our little family many of my staple meals have been cut off the list. It has been rather stressful in the kitchen as I try to stick to a budget and adjust to these changes in our diet.

Here is the list of allergies: rice, eggs, dairy, green peppers, and wheat.

So basically we have become megans, that is, Vegans who eat meat. If you have any recipes that fit this odd diet of ours please share.

It’s another sting video, this time against Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services.

Watch the 9-minute video, and see the face of evil for yourself:

Life News has the story here:

A shocking new expose’ video has caught Planned Parenthood’s top doctor describing how the abortion business sells the body parts of aborted babies.

New undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.

In the video, Nucatola is at a business lunch with actors posing as buyers from a human biologics company. As head of PPFA’s Medical Services department, Nucatola has overseen medical practice at all Planned Parenthood locations since 2009. She also trains new Planned Parenthood abortion doctors and performs abortions herself at…

Accept gifts graciously. Sounds easy, it’s not.

My station wagon died and my husband bought me a minivan. I should like it. I should be thankful. I should be grateful. I should know that he bought it with our family in mind and I should remember that he has my best interests at heart. I know what I should do but the flesh is weak. It is hard. It is hard to accept the gifts your husband gives you when it’s not exactly what you want. It’s hard to accept the fact that this new minivan has those self shutting doors. (I just like slamming car doors-such a satisfying feeling) I dislike a lot of things about this minivan but I am trying very hard to overcome that and accept it with love. I feel I have failed at accepting it graciously, but I’m trying. It’s easy when it’s what you’ve always wanted it’s hard when it’s not. I now see how little I am, how weak and how proud.
