Country Mouse, City Mouse: Which One Are You?

American Farm

I loved the conversation that occurred on yesterday’s post, Are We Persecuting Ourselves?  And I liked the article Molly wrote too. She wasn’t trying to tell anyone what to do. She was raising good questions. Questions some of us want to mull over. I know that almost every single woman reading this blog runs in […]

To Correct or Not to Correct…Your Husband: A Pendulum Post

Lost travelers looking at a map and enjoying their holidays

This is a blog post, and by nature, blog posts are supposed to make a point and make it succinctly.  Therefore, in order for me to make my point and let you go, I‘ll assume some things.  I’m assuming that the typical reader of Visionary Womanhood is a conservative Christian woman who would view feminism […]

To Circumcise or Not to Circumcise: A Pendulum Post


Written by Natalie, Editress of Visionary Womanhood Ahhh. If only I could blog up a plate full of warm, delicious muffins every morning to all you sweet ladies. But no. I feel the urge to write about things like epidurals, eating placentas, and now—chopping up baby bottoms. Can someone pass the muffins? Almost nineteen years […]

To Feed on Schedule or on Demand: A Pendulum Post

Mother breastfeeding her baby

Mama Grizzly’s Way If there’s one topic that brings out the grizzly bear in most mamas, it’s this one.  Why?  We’re mamas.  God wired us to love and protect our tiniest ones with an emotional intensity that sizzles like lightening.  And deep down inside we want to know that we are giving our little treasures […]

To Keep…or Not to Keep…the Home: A Pendulum Post


Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may […]

Reflecting Christ Through Our Clothing: A Pendulum Post


This is a touchy subject that can sometimes cause emotions to run high.  Why?  What we wear often communicates to the world who we are.  And we instinctively know that.  We have our reasons for purchasing a certain style of skirt or blouse over a different style.  What we wear is sort of a “signature,” […]

Medical vs. Natural Childbirth: A Personal Story


Twenty years ago I was pregnant with our first baby and determined to have a mid-wife and experience pregnancy and birth in the most “natural” way possible.  Nineteen weeks into the pregnancy I began to spot a little.  Since I could feel the baby moving and had no other symptoms, I wasn’t too worried as […]

To Fill or Not to Fill—The Quiver: The Pendulum Series Begins!


If you know anything of history, Wemmicks are constantly swinging from one extreme to the other.  It’s our nature.  Because we are small. Needy. Foolish. Ignorant. Sinful. We will continue to swing the pendulum until the end of history. But God! For I the Lord do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are […]
