Meet the Young Women Choosing to Become Nuns

Part of my mission with my website is to find people practicing “radical traditionalism” and I think these gals fit the bill! From the National Post…

Meet the counter-cultural young women who have committed their lives to poverty, obedience and chastitySebastian Leck

Wearing a traditional blue and white habit from head to toe, Sister John Mary is at once peaceful and intense. She warmly welcomes visitors into the quiet convent tucked between a church and a Catholic school in Toronto’s east end.

.

She sings softly during a midday prayer, one of four she attends each day. “Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and will be forever.”

.

Sister John Mary has no possessions and wears a ring to signify her marriage to God. She’s one of the Sisters of Life, a convent of young, ultra-conservative Catholic nuns that was founded in New York in 1991, and arrived in Canada in 2007.

.

In today’s world, choosing to become a nun obviously takes strong conviction. Choosing to become an orthodox, habit-wearing nun takes something more — that perhaps comes with the passion of youth.

.

At the age of 29 — young for a nun in modern times — Sister John Mary committed herself to lifelong vows of poverty, obedience and chastity. The habit that she wears, sews and washes herself is a sign of her commitment in what she calls today’s “post-Christian culture.”

Feminism- My History With It, My Rejection of It. 

Flash back! I made this a few years ago when I first started out on Twitter and YouTube as “Wife With A Purpose.” I wanted women to know they weren’t alone and I wanted to dispel the myth that I was some sheltered Utah housewife who didn’t know any better. I was once a feminist and a pagan, living in San Francisco, preformed in the Vagina Monologues, wrote for SageWoman magazine -the whole deal, but I escaped that postmodernist brainwashing with just a tad of critical thinking and a lot of blessings from God.

Helicopter Mom Podcast! 


Fresh off the presses! Just released, my interview with the lovely ladies at the Helicopter Mom Podcast! I had so much fun chatting with these gals!

From their blog:

.

“Helicopter Mom is Christian, Right Wing, and Traditionalist. This week your hosts are Julia, Rachel, and Evelyn. We had the honor of speaking with Ayla, aka Wife With A Purpose, for the first two portions of the show. In the third section, Julia takes over the bible segment, then throws caution to the wind and tosses the show prep aside toward the end.”

Millstones, Mothers and How 12 Year Olds Aren’t Gay 

But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.” Matthew 18:6
.

Christ was clear, we are never to teach little children sin. It would be better if we were killed than to commit that great error yet sadly so many in our communities are allowing just that to happen, case in point, the mother who recorded her barely 12 year old daughter “coming out” at a Mormon testimony meeting.

.

At no time in human history has a barely 12 year old child had a fully developed understanding of their sexuality, it is for this exact reason that this 12 year girl cannot legally consent to sex, because she is not mature enough to take her sexual decision making into her own hands and, likewise, she also cannot declare she is a lesbian. 

.

This video, meant to shame the LDS Church, is another step toward not only forcing homosexuality on churches both legally and socially, but the age of this young victim is a clear nod to the Gay Lobby’s intention to pursue under age youth in their sexual conquests.

CNN reports…

12-year-old girl comes out to her Mormon congregationBy Paul P. Murphy, CNN

.

Tue June 20, 2017

.

(CNN)Savannah, 12, made a decision this January; she was going to come out as lesbian at her Mormon Church. Nothing was going to stop her.

.

She’s a normal almost-teenage girl in Utah: She loves to draw and make art. When she grows up, she wants to be a Disney animator. Her favorite bands are Imagine Dragons and Fall Out Boy.

.

On June 22, 2016, one day after her birthday, Savannah came out to her parents as lesbian.

.

Mom had suspicions and knew that day might come.

.

I looked at her and said, ‘OK, I love you. And I’ll support you no matter what you do,'” said Heather, her mother.

Make no mistake about it, regardless of what’s being reported this girl was obviously coached and allowed by her parents, with their full knowledge, to preach apostasy from the pulpit. The CNN video crops it to make it appear that the Bishop of the church did and said nothing but the full video, which has been kicking around in Mormon circles for a few weeks now, shows the Bishop ask the girl to sit down once it is apparent she is misusing her time. 

.


The “white pill” or silver lining to this story is that the girl was stopped and while that may seem like little comfort against the back drop of the event itself or the open reception and applause she received online from famous Mormons such as James the Mormon, it is still heartening that our church leaders are standing for the truth, and I pray, they always will. Stay tuned to Wife With A Purpose for updates on this developing story. 

Twitter Rant 

So, I went on a Twitter rant today and I thought it was important to share as many places as possible. I don’t understand where people get these bizarre notions about me from. A lot of lies are flying around the internet and instead of addressing each ridiculous lie and half truth, I think my best course of action is to continue my commitment to honesty.
