The Faces of Abortion:
My Face Looks Just Like Yours

Looking at the faces of women who have had an abortion gives no clue to their past. They look just like the girl next door. Only after these women share their story does the terrible truth come to light. They suffer every day for their sins of the past but, hopefully have found a place for forgiveness.

Playing Games With Your Soul

We can probably all relate to the little games people play in their lives. It goes something like this: the van is running on fumes and I am well beyond tired and already bought groceries and shopped at the mall and attended t-ball practice and I just cannot bear to pull up to that pump. I play the ‘can we make it home and back to the pump’ game and most of the time I make it.

There are many similar ways that we sometimes (often) play games in life – at least this has been my experience much more often than it should. Many of us share those Scarlet O’Hara moments when we resolve to take care of x, y, z – just as long as it can wait until tomorrow.

Society Left Morality…And the Devil Smiled

One of the best commentaries I have seen, about what is going wrong with society today, is a transcript of the Todd Starnes radio show. His list of cause and effect can be read like the timeline of past generations. Each new entry – lack of truth – read relativism, God removed from school, porn and the resulting broken families,...

Is Someone You Love Poison for Your Soul?

Apparently I am not alone in a struggle with someone intimately linked to my life. I have heard many stories portraying similar, unfortunate circumstances. You know, someone in your family or close circle of friends, who persistently goes out of his way to hurt you. This is more than the occasional butting of heads that many of us encounter in...

End Abortion Meme: It’s Simple, Yet Complicated

One of the tools I use in my pro-life advocacy is creating memes that initiate thought, tug on the heart-strings, or generally bring abortion into the light. As a rule, I go for a softer message – no bloody babies in trash bags or parts spelling out Planned Parenthood. The photos and messages are gleaned from where I am – my family,...
