When Worldliness Is Next to Godliness

The following article by Selah Helms was originally published in Family Reformation magazine in 2004, but it is just as relevant today (if not more so). Please take a moment to prayerfully read and discuss this topic with your families.

My teenagers’ peers constantly discuss the movie Bruce Almighty, the rock groups Switchfoot and Evanescence, country music, sexy actors, and personal appearance. In these cultural elements, young people seem to live, …

Where Does Your Worth Come From?

“Let your beauty be found in “the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God.” 1 Peter 3:4

Christian ladies, you are not defined by your outward appearance. Your worth and value aren’t measured by what you look like. Your value comes from the fact that you are made in the image of God. Your …

Train up a child in the way of a…prostitute?

I am heartbroken for the little girls out there who are not only unprotected, but exploited – even by their own parents.

I was absolutely apalled today when I read the following article, which included a video of 7-year-old girls at a dance competition! They were dancing to bump and grind music, in red and black stripper bikinis,  gyrating for the crowd:

“The signs are all there: The hip-grinding come-ons. Legs kicked up to the ear. Skin-baring lingerie. This particular video …

What Does a Homemaker Look Like?

Remember, we serve an awesome and creative God. He has given us each different strengths, talents, gifts, and resources. You can use these abilities to help your husband and serve your family to the glory of God. No woman’s life is going to look the same. The intricate tapestry of each woman’s life is amazing. We serve a sovereign God!

Ask yourself today if you’ve created a dry and dusty image in your mind of what a homemaker is “supposed” …

An Open Letter to Conservative Christian Guys

“I have seen among the simple, I have perceived among the youths, a young man lacking sense…” (Proverbs 7:7, ESV)

I received the following email from a young lady who would like to remain anonymous. I recently gave a talk at a local ladies event on the topic of chastity. Afterward, my husband rightly pointed out that the young men need to “get it” too. I heartily agree. They also need to listen to their parents and consider Proverbs 7 …

Advice from Jasmine…

The following excerpt is from an excellent article by Jasmine Baucham, where she gives wise advice to her fellow “daughters at home”

Have you ever heard a talk on biblical womanhood and felt utterly inadequate? In the face of conversation about anti-feminism, have you ever wondered just how anti feminism you should be (should you spurn education entirely because you don’t want to devote your time to a four-year university? Should you become incompetent and directionless because you don’t want …

“Hi, I had a question about daughters at home. I’m 22 and not married. I moved out of home at 17 (I had graduated high school by then, from a combination of public school and Christian). I then went into missions …

Protecting Our Daughters

Tiffany speaking to a group of ladies at a women’s event

Question: Stacy, you mentioned that your daughters stay home under your protection. Do sons need this same protection? If not, why not? – R4md Mom

Hi R4md Mom,

What a good question! First, let me point out that when I say we “protect” our daughters, I do …
