Dear Post Abortive Sister, On the Anniversary of Roe v. Wade

45th Anniversary of Roe V. Wade
We are reminded today of the anniversary of the tragic Roe decision that made abortion “safe and legal” in America. Sunday, in evangelical churches across our nation we celebrated Sanctity of Life Sunday. Some churches showed a short video, others had a guest speaker who spoke on the evils of abortion, and sadly, some of those speakers added to the crushing weight of fear, guilt, shame and regret that you live with every day.

Have You Been Assimilated?

I am unashamedly a big fan of Star Trek. I love the campy original series with Spock and Captain Kirk, the steady leadership of Pickard and Ryker in Next Generation, and the wanderings of the crew of the spaceship Voyager. Some of my favorite episodes feature dealings with the Borg. For those who are unenlightened in the wonders of Star Trek, the Borg is a predatory, alien species of cybernetic organisms who add to their number by assimilation. Once the Borg gets ahold of a species, they became a part of the hive by being assimilated. Individuality is non-existent. Their conquests are completely and permanently absorbed and physically altered to look and function like a Borg drone. The Borg have one mind and one purpose, and their goal is the total assimilation of the universe.

Christmas morning was such fun!

BC4Women Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary!

“A blog? Why would I write a blog? Who would care about anything I have to say?” Those were the words I uttered to my friend Jody when she suggested I begin to write on biblical counseling issues for women. She did a fair amount of arm twisting to get me to post my thoughts online, but as I prayed about it and thought about it, I saw the need for women to share the truth with other women on issues that impact us in our daily lives. Once I decided to do it, I determined that I would never be anything but real about the issues, even if it meant exposing sins I struggle with to provide help, healing, and hope to the readers.

Christmas Wars

It’s the most wonderful time of the year when we enjoy time with our friends and family at Christmas- themed gatherings. At least that is a reality for some Christians but not all of us. Many Christ followers find religious holidays such as Easter and Christmas to be difficult times to spend with family; especially if family members are unbelievers.
