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

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.

How to Raise a Protester

How to Raise a Protester

If you are currently in the trenches of child-rearing, my heart goes out to you. It is a mixed-up world these days, where children are catered to and coddled, never challenged to grow and learn through their mistakes. You will be fighting an uphill battle, fueled by friends who have everything, school systems with low expectations, and communities with little accountability. But there is still hope, my dear sister-moms! Commit yourselves to prayer and consistent study of the biblical principles of parenting. God is faithful, and He will lead and guide you as you walk in obedience to Him.

I have been extremely disappointed in the outcome of the last several presidential elections because I have disagreed with the candidate on moral and ethical grounds. This time was no different.

Persecution and Standing Firm

Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Ephesians 6:13 (NASB) In light of the increasing terror attacks in our world, and as those attacks begin to happen here in the United States I have been giving a lot of thought to standing firm in the face of persecution.Scripture is clear that we will suffer for our faith, and like our brothers and sisters in foreign lands we will one day be called upon to make a life and death proclamation. We will be told to renounce our faith in Jesus Christ or suffer the punishment for it. We are on borrowed time. The question must be asked, will you stand in the day? In my counseling ministry I see so many people who are not dealing biblically or not dealing at all with relatively simple (compared to persecution) issues and I wonder how they will fare when the truly tough stuff comes along. The only hope any of us have to be able to stand fearlessly against persecution is to have the Word of God so deeply ingrained in our hearts and minds that it becomes our automatic response to issues and problems. It has to start with the small things! It has to begin with the issues I write about each day on this...
