Please pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee or tea, and a box of tissues. Oh, and if there is a stuffed animal or some such nearby, you may want that when you feel like throwing something. This is not going to be easy for you to hear, but you need to.
Let’s cut right to the chase, modern western feminist culture along with postmodern Christendom has lied to you. A lot! Ultimately, the lies come from the adversary, but culture and Christendom have been the mouthpiece and you have been the willful, even eager, participant absorbing and sharing the lies because they made you feel good. Now, culture and Christendom are a cancerous rot and everyone is afraid to lance the festering boil because it is painful and ugly, but healing and restoration can only come from addressing and correcting the problems.
113Restoration.com is principally about restoring the Biblical family structure. There are many tools in the adversary’s bag that are used to tear family apart. One such tool, often unrecognized, is work related.
While God’s plan for Adam was to have dominion and to be fruitful and multiply, it wasn’t for Adam to go one way and his helper, Chava, to go another. Rather, evidenced all through Scripture, families worked together, whether agriculturally or in a trade.

I just reviewed a book by Rory Groves on natsab.com that I strongly recommend as a clear roadmap to building a family friendly source of income. Durable Tradesnot only explains why a family business in the ‘durable trades’ is great wisdom, but details over 60 durable trades and their respective pluses and minuses!! Of even better news is that many can be worked simultaneously further diversifying and securing family income while strengthening your family through shared vision, work, and interaction.

One of the benefits of the public stance I have taken regarding the Biblical positions of patriarchy and polygyny have been the number of people who have reached out to me with questions, support, or to share their story in how the Father opened their eyes in this challenging area. Currently, I am blessed to see the breadth of what the Father is doing as my connections and contacts now span the globe and cross multiple languages.
The recent video series on YouTube has been a particularly good connector with others, especially Torah teachers and keepers.
Benjamin, in a recent email conversation, shared some extremely insightful thoughts on rightly framing the argument. In his own words (and with his permission), here are the significant portions of one email:
In 1869, a Christian philanthropist named James Campbell published a book titled The History and Philosophy of Marriage: Polygamy and Monogamy Compared. Filled with incredible wisdom and thought into natural law as well as Scripture regarding the societal effects of monogamy and polygamy. (Technically, the author always refers to polygyny, but uses the umbrella term polygamy.)
