Some of us are old enough to remember the shocking nature of Barbara Eden’s showing her navel on “I Dream of Jeannie” in the ’60s and how the revealing one-piece bathing suits on “Charlie’s Angels” in the ’70s were considered scanty. Compare that with today. Friends, our society has become desensitized to immorality on-screen, and we’re passing it on to our small children and teens by allowing them even to be exposed to such vulgar content and productions via our televisions, the Internet and our movie theaters. We must embrace the wisdom of the great British orator Edmund Burke, who said, “Evil flourishes when good men do nothing.”...read more

Meditation for the Morning
Let us adore Jesus Christ in the visits which He made during His life. He made very few, and He made them in a very holy manner, that He might merit for us the grace of sanctifying ours and of avoiding the dangers to be met with in them.

Since I viewed the first trailer, I’ve been saying that the Twilight series was another step in the de-Christianization of our culture…but I had no idea how bad really it was! I’m with this reviewer….I WAS TOO KIND BEFORE!

“The torment that so many young women know, bound hand and foot by love and motherhood, without having forgotten their former dreams.” ~Simone de Bevoir
Someday, I would like to get married to a man who I can follow to the ends of the earth as he follows full-heartedly after Christ.
Someday, I would like to become the mother of as many blessings as the Lord should ordain, raising them in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
