The forced draft due to the Vietnam War brought a sense of eternity to the youth, provoking them to seriously consider their souls. It was a time of a great move of the Spirit of God. As a teenager, dressed in tie-dye tee shirt and long drooping peasant skirt, she stood on the highways and byways sharing the gospel and seeing miracle after miracle of God's amazing grace. She married her life mate, Michael Pearl, in 1971.

Reviews - What do customers think about No Greater Joy Volume 2?
Read Their Children. Mar 3, 2007
For anyone looking for proof of the methods the Pearls teach; you need only read their children. They are grown, with children of their own. They have their own articles available online. As for someone reading their books and commiting child abuse; they should have read ALL of the instructions. To injure a child after reading their books, you must have selected which words to heed very carefully. Much the same as if I encouraged you to go home, sit down and eat with your children: You decided to go home, sit down and eat your children!
AN EXCELLENT BOOK !!! Sep 14, 2006
Everyone reading this book and others written by the Pearls will recognize that they are based on the Word of God and for this reason they have many enemies. When people heard the truth from the Lord Jesus in person they said "who can suffer this talk" or "he is evil". If people could say that about the Lord Jesus, the Son of God, what should we expect about his followers? If the World hated Jesus' ministry, they will hate the ministry of any of His followers who want to be approved by God alone and speak the truth. People don't like to hear God's opinion. It tortures their conscience. The Bible says that in the last days people will not want to hear the truth but teachers who will tell them what they want to hear.
If you want to know the truth, read the Bible yourself and see if the Pearls ministry is from man or from the Lord. Maybe your pastor taught you only some truth or a twisted truth. The Lord said : "read for yourself".
Generations of Failure Are Proof Enough Aug 21, 2006
Where have the last couple of generations gone wrong? It has been in moving away from sound Biblical doctrine and adopting worldly "feel-good" forms of discipline (time-outs), positive affirmation, and blaming others (he's a middle child). The Bible says, "The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame." Proverbs 29:15 Hmmmmm. Do you feel ashamed when you look at your children who don't obey you and disrespect other adults? In a culture where children are being nursed by television and practical strangers, could this proverb be any more true? My own grandmother says, "You don't need that switch. That baby (2-year-old) is so sweet." And to that I reply, "What do you think made her that way? It certainly wasn't her human nature." The proof is in the results. When we go out in public, my child does not throw mashed potatoes at the restaurant wall, she does not tell us "NO!", and she makes no disruptions (only people commenting on how sweet and good she is). All of this is because at home, we train her to obey. We did not allow her to develop such bad habits. If she displayed that attitude once, we put a stop to it. She was not abused. She was trained that that was an unacceptable behavior. People do it with dogs all of the time. They do it with horses. Circuses train elephants and bears. Why would I treat my animals any better than I treat my children? I would only do this if my values were seriously screwed up and I had no fear of the Almighty God.
The Pearls teach how to TRAIN your children so they won't need DISCIPLINE. They don't tell you to HIT them. They tell you to apply the ROD (a Biblical concept: Prov. 13:24, Prov. 22:15, Prov. 23:13-14) in a loving, instructive way so as to TRAIN them UP in the way they should go. If you don't train them, they will go the way the wind blows. Then you have to figure out a way to bend/break them out of their disobedience and back into the proper path (discipline). It is easier on the children to train them in the beginning than to wait until they have bad habits that have to be broken. It really is quite an amazing concept- one instituted by God and not the Pearls. They have simply obeyed the Word and become wise beyond many a psychologist's years. You really have to read this book to appreciate their instruction. They simply take what God has commanded that we do (use the rod to train up our children) and show us some creative ways that they have learned to implement them. I am blessed to have such a wise counsel in the Pearls.
Here's a thought: MANY A MAN HAS TRAINED HIS DOG BETTER THAN HE HAS TRAINED HIS CHILDREN. THAT IS CHILD ABUSE!
What the Pearls teach is not abuse if it is done in a loving, kind, Godly manner. It is YOUR ATTITUDE that makes the difference. I think that's what a lot of these nay-sayers are afraid of. They can't handle the pressure. It takes a lot of love and patience and wisdom to stay home with two-year-olds and babies (at the same time!) and do household chores and manage the bills and make out grocery lists and cook supper and satisfy a spouse and wash clothes and..........or we could just hire a sitter and go off to work where we only have to obey man and not God....... Christians have got to stop living like the world. Our children deserve better.
Yet another wonderful book! Aug 19, 2006
Another great addition to the Pearl's books. These books take you to a reality that is obviously unfathomable to many people. This is child rearing from the Bible, the Pearls are mainly explaining the importance of proper application. You cannot call yourself a Christian and leave such cruel feedback on the Pearls, that is not love. May God bless those who actually read it, with wisdom and understanding.
THINK FOR YOURSELF! Jul 5, 2006
Why don't people think for themselves anymore??? Reviews are merely someone's very biased opinion. Read the book for yourself! I'm sure that you will find that most reviews that you have read have misconstrued information or taken things out of context. Grow up and decide for yourself! And by the way, hasn't anyone else noticed that the more upset someone is about a particular book, the more they have totally and emotionally lied about what the core of the book is really about??????
