The Blessing of Abortion

I first heard of this news story from Much More Than Rubies and then read the article here at World Mag. Katherine Ragsdale, the soon-to-be President of the Episcopal Divinity School, a major seminary near Harvard says that abortion is a blessing.  She even goes so far and says that abortion is holy work !  Here are some more quotes from the article: "Ragsdale, though, says abortion is a "blessing," and not only in harsh situations but good ones: "When a woman becomes pregnant within a loving, supportive, respectful relationship; has every option open to her; decides she does not wish to bear a child; and has access to a safe, affordable abortion—there is not a tragedy in sight—only blessing. The ability to enjoy God's good gift of sexuality without compromising one's education, life's work, or ability to put to use God's gifts and call is simply blessing ." This is what I've been talking about folks - this PERVERTED ( twisted ) view

Facial Care Introduction; Products I Use

We have yet to start talking about facial care, someone had commented last year that they thought I was 19 or around there because of my skin lol.  Believe me it was the best compliment I have ever gotten! ; )  I'm not 19, but 29 and my skin is not the greatest.  I do believe you can do things to: Protect your skin from damage ( wear sunscreen all the time! ) Slow down skin damage you already caused My skin regime has changed over the years, so I will start from the beginning.  I used to use Irish Spring to wash my face when I was a teenager and didn't know anything about face care.  Then my oldest Sister got us started on Clinique's 3-step system but it actually only gave me skin problems that I had never had before.  Then she started selling Mary Kay and we used those cleansers.  I did wear makeup back then and you needed a heavy duty cleanser to get all that junk off lol. One thing I regret that I did from a child on up was sit out in the sun and go to our grandma

Anonymous vs. Face to Face

What we need to realize is that the internet, email and any type of writing without the actual person present with their tone of voice or facial expression - you can skew and interpret wrongly what the author is saying. This happens a lot and even others I have talked to say the same thing. I would be here all day explaining things, because you only read what I write without hearing my tone of voice or the manner in which I'm presenting it. It can come across a different way then I intended. It is easy to hide behind "anonymous" and say things to someone that you would never say to them face to face . I think the internet for some that use it that way has become a "weight" that so easily besets them. They are murdering each other with their own words, of which you will be judged with before God no matter if you used anonymous or not! The internet is a blessing in some ways and a curse in others! It is hard to understand that so many want to actually r

Guest Post: Simplifying the Home

Dear readers and friends of Christian Home keeping blog, It is a pleasure for me to be asked by Bev to write a guest post about my home keeping tips and schedule for her blog. Bev is a lady of beauty. I love that its her hearts desire to follow the Lord, and that she has a blog created to encourage us in our roles as home keepers. I like my home to be fresh, clean, simple and pretty. I recently titled my blog " Simply Pretty " because I want to create a simple and pretty home for my family. I believe that the key to keeping our homes organized is by living simpler. To me, that means having less material things in my home. I like the saying "Have nothing in your home that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful". I find that to be such great advice because the truth is, the more things that we have, the more we have to dust and clean! Here are some of my tips to help with simplifying our home: Start with going room to room. Keep only what is

Deliberate Childlessness

I was typing up some old Seminary notes from the last 2 classes and a comment that a teacher had made really took hold of me. She talked about how having a child gave you a deeper view into God, one that those without children could never understand or know. I sat there and thought on that and it is so true. There is a greater view into God and the love he had for His Son and all that entails about the parent/child relationship. It was truly a view that God wanted us to have as he made us to reproduce. Then I was reading an article from Voddie Bauchman about the child prevention that has seem to become the thing to do lately. One of the links lead me to the following article of which I got my title for this post. I'm not talking about those who can't have children and are unable - that should cause sadness for those who are unable. Here is a quote from the article: "Christians must recognize that this rebellion against parenthood represents nothing less than
