What I first thought of when I read this…


James 1:14 But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust.

I’ve grown fond of a younger woman at my church in the two years hubby and I have been attending. We’ve served on the same outreach ministry team together and she’s always so willing to go the extra mile to make sure church events run smoothly.

Then, I think about how subtle Satan can be and how he knows the perfect recipe to remind you of your heap of past mistakes and how spiritually, emotionally, and physically weak I was just twenty years ago.

One Sunday morning, my friend and gorgeous husband were sitting a few yards away from where we were sitting.

This article really hits the hammer on the head where it describes the uncontrollable urge to stare.

I shrugged it off and let it go.

Until last Sunday…

It’s Time to Choose


I know which side I’m on. Thank you Lord!

I was laying in bed last night, pondering the condition of our country.  I remembered how after the 9/11 attacks, Americans flooded into churches and pulled together and called on God… for a couple of weeks.  Then I thought about how just recently, the shootings in Charleston drew attention to God and forgiveness and people of faith… for a couple of days.  And now, we are seeing one video after another being released (as of today, 4 videos have been released) that shows Planned Parenthood management discussing the prices for various organs and parts of aborted babies.


America – will you wake up to this evil that you have embraced?  Regardless of your political views or how you believe women need access to “safe, legal and rare abortion” – LOOK WITH YOUR EYES!!  Don’t you dare look away!   [ARTICLE: Looking Away from Abortion]

God is calling us.  We have a choice…

FINAL SBSC front cover 44-17-15jpgAfter years of staying away, I was summoned to my parents’ home. My first evening there, my stepfather alarmed me by pulling me into his arms—this, while my mother lay dying of cancer just yards away. The familiar smell of alcohol, the feel of his hot breath, triggered memories from the past as he moved to bury his face in my neck. “You know how much Daddy loves you—” I jerked away from him. “Stop it!” Suddenly pale, he grabbed his pack of cigarettes and spat at me, “Get to bed!” as though I was five instead of thirty-five. I did as he commanded and climbed the stairs to the spare bedroom, seething with hatred for my childhood abuser.

Teaching Sex Abuse Prevention In Schools Is Critical


I agree. Every parent should know their responsibility in recognizing childhood sexual abuse, how to talk to their children about it, (including the Underwear Rule, and how to report abuse.

goodtouch_badtouchSchools have felt that the proper time to begin talking to kids about sex is in middle school health class. Even then, many parents get up in arms at the idea of Sex Ed being taught to their children. When I read that some statistics show that up to one-third of middle schoolers are already sexually active, I wondered, “How many of these kids have already been sexually abused by then?”

“Age is a significant factor in sexual abuse. While there is risk for children of all ages, children are most vulnerable to abuse between the ages of 7 and 13.The median age for reported abuse is 9 years old. However, more than 20% of children are sexually abused before the age of 8. Child Sexual Abuse Facts

Erin’s Law is not a sex ed bill,” she (Erin) said in testimony to the House’s Judiciary Committee Tuesday. “This…
