Planned Parenthood is always a hot topic between myself and my liberal friends. What I’ve found in my discussions is that they don’t often know the history of Planned Parenthood. They’re usually shocked and dismayed when I share some key points in PP’s history.
I had already begun writing this when the news came in about PP distancing themselves from their fearless leader, Margaret Sanger. When even I agree with CNN, you know this person was terrible.
Sanger was a firm believer in eugenics. …
I remember thinking about how stressful this was going to be. How my family was going to reject me. I knew they didn’t approve.
But it’s who I am.
It’s how I feel.
I couldn’t deny it.
As a professional writer, I knew it would come out eventually so better everyone hear it from me first.
It was a moment to share with family first. Even though I knew they’d be the hardest. I felt like if I dealt with the harshest reaction first, the rest would be easier.
Boy, was I wrong. Maybe.
My desire was to be honest. I strive to be honest in all my writing and have no problem expressing the most vulnerable parts of myself. …
I see these posts every single day on my newsfeed about being the silent majority and how “real America” will show up in the polls.
As the silent majority, we don’t trust media polls or buy the rhetoric the mainstream media shoves down our throats because we know what real America is like and it’s not what the cringe-worthy radical left wants you to believe it is.
The truth is though, we are going to lose the America we love if we remain the silent majority.
If we continue to allow our values to be trampled on and erased, the great America we’re always discussing won’t exist. …
I wanted to talk about something near and dear to my heart today, religious intolerance. But between the different Christian denominations and amongst our own churches.
There is an insane amount of division among the Christian community and I wanted to address it today. We often see articles about losing religious freedoms in America and the war on Christianity is real but the division amongst other Christians is a part of the problem.
You see when we’re divided on things like the Godhead, baptizing babies, etc. we lose sight of the primary focus, our Savior.
I can tell you that I have experienced some intense religious intolerance amongst other Christian denominations and in other churches I’ve attended. …
While churches everywhere are going digital due to the pandemic, some people are left wondering what they’ll do to make Easter memorable and full of faith. While I love doing church at home, there’s something unique about being around a group of other believers. So how do we bring the uniqueness of that experience to our home?
Glad you asked!
Here are a few of my favorite resources and tips for making this Easter super special.
We did this last year with the kids and they loved it! …
We kicked off the Wife After God study this week and as I was preparing something hit me hard which makes me more excited for this study we’re doing. I’m using the book, Wife After God and Jennifer provides scripture reference for each day.
Since I am running the study, I also find additional resources, come up with questions, etc. to supplement.
While preparing though I read a scripture we’ve all probably read a thousand times. Genesis 2:18 (NIV) says, “The Lord God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone. …
When I was a Mormon, I saw all of these picture prefect families Moms coming to church with their six kids in perfectly pressed white shirts and tie, little girls in dresses with their hair perfect and mama with her hair & makeup done and juggling everyone in heels. I immediately felt inadequate. I was taking care of teen with unique challenges at the time and frankly we didn’t have it together. I looked nothing like them. I had all these ideas about what it meant to be the perfect Christian mom. …
I honestly thank God every single day we have children on fire for God but I also didn’t realize how challenging it would be. I hope you you find some solace and share your own insights with me! We only learn when we talk to each other.
A few months ago my husband was baptized. He made a public declaration to follow God and boy have I seen it manifest in him. My husband was already an incredible spiritual leader in our home but he really started to shine when he came out of that water. …
Do I love my husband the way God calls me to?
As Christians, we often quote Ephesians 5:22–33 when we’re talking about marriage. More specifically it’s always about husbands loving their wives as Christ loves the Church and people tend to focus on the submission part of it.
Here’s the thing, if my husband is to love me like Jesus, then he deserves a wife who loves him like the Church loves Jesus.
So how does the Church submit to Jesus and show love to Christ? More importantly, how then do I apply this to my marriage?
“And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches every heart and understands every desire and every thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever.” 1 Chronicles…
In 2019, I honestly cannot go more than a week without being called a racist. You would think it means I’m a racist, right? If it walks like a duck and sounds like a duck, it must be a duck. Not entirely true here.
