Here is only a few moments from my private life. I portray the damage caused by an angered soul. My heart loves the one who brings the war home. Although our homes are divided now, my heart sings to him from afar as I pray for his heart. It must be hurting more than ever now. One can love from afar, without inviting the war at home.
Recently, I was asked to work on a project about abortion. I hadn’t really put too much thought or attention to this subject before. Nor had I considered the methods of abortion, the impact of this practice throughout the world, the effects it has on a mother or the pain the fetus feels. Never could I imagine that a business would exist to broker in the collecting and selling of fetal parts. The more I studied the more disgusted I became. Without a doubt I am Pro-Life. My heart aches for those little babies that aren’t even given a chance at life.
A few months ago we wrote about the World Congress of Families that convened in Salt Lake City, Utah and focused on issues that affect families and family relationships. I was fortunate enough to attend several of the lectures and am thrilled that they are now available online. There are so many worthwhile reports (available on the WCF website or YouTube channel) but I wanted to share a few from individuals who started with a simple act and grew into changing the world.
A new bathroom policy has Washington State residents in an uproar, and I happen to be one of them. For sixteen years my husband and I have raised our son and five daughters here. Six children, among millions of others, that can no longer use public restrooms, locker rooms or dressing rooms in this state, with a sense of privacy or assurance of safety.
We are right in the middle of the Presidential primaries. The American people have a lot of decisions to make. We have to decide what issues are the most important to us. Trying to find a candidate who totally aligns with all of our views is hard. We may have to give up a few to keep the more important ones. And there is no shortage of issues facing Americans. Unemployment rates, the economy, foreign affairs, health care, abortion, human rights, Planned Parenthood, religious liberties, the second amendment, illegal immigration, ISIS, and the list goes on and on. All of these are important issues that affect the lives of American’s every day. However, some of the issues that we face do not directly affect us. In fact some don’t affect us at all.
