A Bond That Lasts a Lifetime
Guests: Martha Krienke
The joys of motherhood, the unique relationship between a mom and her adult children, and an insider’s look on how to best affirm and encourage your mom this Mother’s Day are a few of the topics we discuss during this week's roundtable. Lisa and I are joined by Kathy Gowler, conference speaker and co-author of What Your Daughter Isn't Telling You and Here for You: Creating a Mother-Daughter Bond That Lasts a Lifetime. Kathy and her husband, Jeff, have two children and three grandchildren.
The Flipside of Feminism
Guests: Phyllis Schafly
The Flipside of Feminism, by Suzanne Venker and Phyllis Schlafly, taught me several things about this movement that I had never heard before.
"When a woman has achieved success both in a career and as a wife and mother, feminists feel personally threatened because it proves motherhood isn't oppressive."
"Feminism is about female empowerment and validation. It's about helping insecure women feel better about themselves."
"Men are really much nicer than feminists want us to believe."
All those quotes are just from the first two chapters! After you listen to this segment about "what conservative women know and men can’t say," let us know what you think by leaving a comment to this post.

She says she has infatuated feelings for almost every guy she meets. Not only is this habit starting to interfere with how she interacts with men, it's also affecting how she views herself and her relationship with God. Candice Watters, a regular contributor to Boundless.org, offers advice for this college-age reader to begin seeing her male peers as brothers in Christ.
