Hot Wives, the Harlem Shake, and Our Favorite Posts from 2013


Dec 31 2013
Readers and writers pick the best of Her.meneutics.
"In an era when parents can focus exclusively on the minutiae of care, feeding, and discipline of children, and when the child-free often take a defensive attitude in their decision to keep the house diaper-free, and when those who desire children but do not have them are sometimes diminished by their envy, it was refreshing to read Gina's affirmation of the goodness of children and the joy of participating in their lives as a non-parent. If anything can bridge the gap in the Christian community between the haves and have-nots, it is this essay." - Megan Hill
Confessions of That Mom, the One on Her Phone
A work-from-home parent during summer vacation.
Caryn Rivadeneira
"It's so easy to tsk tsk at other moms (judge) but Caryn unpacks why that mom is on her phone. Love people who spread peace - not panic." - Jen Grant

Lyndsey Gvora, guest blogger

Lamenting My Prejudice Against Beautiful Women
When did I absorb the belief that being feminine means being shallow?
Katelyn Beaty

"I appreciate how honest Katelyn is in this article about her gut reactions towards what is "feminine." Her willingness to question these reactions sheds light on unhelpful associations between femininity and shallowness and point the way toward a fuller understanding of female beauty." - Liuan Huska
