Someone sent me this post today:

Deal Breakers: Advice to Unmarried Women (and Daughters)

It was so good I immediately sent it to my unmarried daughters!

Surely one of our greatest concerns as parents is to make sure our daughters do not marry a dangerous man who hurts her ...and our precious grandchildren!

But how do we train them to "see problems" in the men they meet before they become the blinded women who gets sucked into a dysfunctional mess? Surely listening to the women who made this mistake and came back to tell us what they missed might be a good way to learn!

As you read this article, please note what the author clearly states several times. Just because you see one of these weaknesses in your men, does not mean they are abusers. You are looking for patterns and the "deal breaker" big ones that are like alarm bells we should never ignore.

This is a good one to pass on to your friends who are raising daughters. If you are like me, you know too many good Christian women who have been affected by this problem to not speak up to prevent more pain.

Here is another thought. Perhaps you read this list and you become concerned that your own son could be exhibiting these warning signs.  Wow. This article might be your best friend also! Now is the time to get your son the help he needs to resolve anger issues and wrong belief systems!

Blessings,

Lisa

Supreme court 1993-8-7-P

Yesterday's decision by the Supreme Court to legalize same sex marriage was indeed a defining moment for our nation.

I'm sure you were like me watching the reverberation from that decision on all of your social media and online outlets.

But perhaps you're also like me… Wondering…

What exactly just happened here?

I believe this explanation by Albert Mohler is very clear and informative:

Everything Has Changed and Nothing Has Changed — The Supreme Court Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage

If you read this to your family, it can become the basis of your preparation for the future.

Today, we continue to pray. We continue to listen to the Holy Spirit's voice.

Please be encouraged. God always calls a remnant in every generation to speak forth His word and stand firm in Him.

God's word is eternal. It cannot be changed by man.

This is the time to double up our efforts of explaining these matters to our children. The floodwaters of dissipation are rising quickly all around us.

And in the end, the most important and vital culture war that will be won or lost is the culture war in your own home.

Blessings,

Lisa

We are being manipulated!

We are being manipulated! Please read this!!

What really happened in Ireland’s gay ‘marriage’ referendum

Are you wondering why gay marriage is taking America by storm?

This is the best explanation of what is happening to us that I have run across!

Please....for the sake of your families....take a look at this article. It explains how the people of Ireland were just manipulated to changing their nation.

And the steps outlined here are happening to our own families! Our children, particularly our near voting age teens and our young adults are in the crossfire as this article clearly explains.

Again...I urge you to read this one and then share it in your family. Read it at the dinner table or pass it via text or email. It is very important!

Here is an excerpt of the article below that will give you a clue as to its value:

The total LGBT funding to achieve “gay marriage” in Ireland has been estimated at between $17 and $25 million – roughly 50 times what was raised and spent by the pro-family side. Their execution was planned and focused rather than scattered and haphazard as our side’s tended to be.

The campaign with lengthy and intense (and expensive) nationwide propaganda using psychological manipulation techniques to pound the entire country. The average person could barely grasp the force that was coming at him. And that was just the beginning.

The arguments were not rational or truthful, but completely emotional.

People were told over and over that those opposed to “gay marriage”:

  • Are opposed to democracy
  • Will damage lives
  • Are against human rights
  • Will hurt Ireland’s international reputation
  • Will hurt Ireland’s economy
  • Are in favor of discrimination
  • Are against love
  • Are hateful and bigoted
  • Are stupid and backwards

This all had a horrible effect on our side while galvanizing their supporters. It got to a point where people who persisted in holding these “backward” beliefs were considered inferior humans by the supporters. One could literally lose his job over it. A particularly nasty venom was directed at religious believers and the Catholic Church. Many of our people became frightened and confused, while the other side became bolder and more vicious.     Read the entire article here.
