现实育儿

2012年下午5:05,Nicole Whitacre 归档下圣经中的女性身份

So often,我们妈妈们用最糟糕的日子来评价我们自己的母亲,并把自己和其他妈妈在最美好的日子里进行比较。但这两种测量方法都是错误的,会导致很多不必要的(更不用说不道德的)焦虑,假内疚,自怜。

When we get back fromthat awful trip to the grocery storewith three small fussy children,或者忍受一整天的青少年闷闷不乐,我们得出结论有史以来最糟糕的一天is the measure of our mothering: total failure.

但是我们go online-在那里有很多母亲“最佳日子会被发现并假设其他妈妈也有。

We read a mom-blog with gorgeous photographs of a creatively decorated,非常干净和有条理的儿童房,我们假设这一定是这个女人的房间。整个的house looks like总是新利18luckIM电竞牛

或者我们的facebook订阅中充满了关于孩子们最新兄弟姐妹爱的家长报告,超级可爱,成熟超越了他们的年龄评论,我们认为这就是那些家庭中的对话必须听起来像的。总是新利18luckIM电竞牛

Or we pop over to Pinterest only to conclude that every other woman must serve fresh,美味可口,beautiful,给家人的有机食物总是新利18luckIM电竞牛

What we can't see online are the ten messy-house,fussy-children,每一品脱的完美时刻都有适合晚餐的谷类食品。So we must be alert to our temptation to compare ourselves to a false standard—a picture that someone else is trying to portray,或者我们已经在自己的头脑中根据一张快照填写了这些信息。

And if browsing routinely leaves us prone to compare,overwhelmed,充满内疚,那么,这可能是一个信号,我们需要削减网络,定期和无情地回到经文:提醒我们,每一天(为每一位母亲)!) has enough trouble of its own (Matt 6:34),but also that"就像你的日子一样,你的力量也将如此”(Deut.33:25)如果我们不因行善而疲乏,在适当的时候,如果我们不放弃,我们将收获(加6:9)。

凯西·凯勒评论瑞秋·霍德·埃文斯

2012年下午6:19,Nicole Whitacre 归档下圣经中的女性身份

凯西·凯勒提供an important and insightful critiqueof a new book by Rachel Held Evans entitledA Year of Biblical Womanhood。Your discernment will be sharpened by reading this review:

瑞秋,我可以也确实同意你在书中所说的关于圣经中糟糕的解释或父权制习俗对妇女的罪恶压迫的许多观点。I would join you in exposing churches,书,teachers,以及把人类议程强加在圣经上的领导人。However,you have become what you claim to despise;you have imposed your own agenda on Scripture in order to advance your own goals.In doing so,you have further muddied the waters of biblical interpretation instead of bringing any clarity to the task.

As a woman also engaged in trying to understand the Bible as it relates to gender,I had hoped for better.

在线妈妈

2012年8:06 PM Carolyn Mahaney 归档下圣经中的女性身份|新利18luckIM电竞牛Time Management|母性

在我们对以福音为中心的育儿法有更具体的想法之前,we want to talk 18luck外围投注about a few sources of discouragement for moms.Unruly children aren't the only cause for despair;a big source of temptation can also come from comparison with other moms.

米根发来的这篇有见地的评论是关于18luck外围投注贾内尔邮报

It was nice to be assured that some one else has children who throw themselves on the floor and cry as if the world is ending when they don't get their way and that I'm not the only one who doesn't get around to gourmet meals every night.So often all people post 18luck外围投注about or share are the great,creative things they do.喜欢美食、手工缝制的衣服和衣着完美的孩子。所有的状态更新都是关于他们孩子最近做的可爱的事情。18luck外围投注(没有人发布关于孩子最近发脾18luck外围投注气的帖子。)请理解,I'm sure I am guilty of the very things I am complaining 18luck外围投注about!但是你可以离开所有这些帖子/更新,以为其他人都在一起行动,这就是它必须成为一个好”妈妈和妻子。当一个人不能达到这些标准时,他的心会非常沮丧,充满内疚。

As one pastor recently引自威尔·法雷尔(not someone we ever thought we would be quoting here on girltalk!):"愿你的生活有一天像你在Facebook上假装的那样精彩。”“

现在我觉得我们大多数人都不想假装甚至是假货。但这提出了一个有趣的观点,即我们作为母亲的职位,以及我们如何解读其他人在社交媒体上的18luck外围投注职位。

In our recent series,,相连的心,we noted that there are endless ways that we as mothers can benefit from social media and the Internet.But we must also be alert to the fact that it expands the sources of temptation as well.

在我抚养孩子的时候,只有我的朋友和邻居们愿意和我比较我的母亲。Today,与脸谱网,Pinterest等等,我们每天都要和无数的女人较量,其中许多人我们不认识,而谁的女人呢?真实的生活大多被隐藏在视野之外。

So while we can glean many creative and useful mothering tips online,we can also be tempted to measure ourselves against a virtual standard of motherhood: a perfect,复合母亲谁不,事实上,真的存在。
