I have been wondering about the sanity of promoting the idea that government employees (teachers) carry firearms while children are in lock-down (school) inaccessible to the their parents, for their ‘safe’ education. Teachers are in a difficult place. Families using government schooling are in a bind right now. Helping others reach a position where they are no longer dependent on the government is a very … Continue reading She Survived Hitler And Wants To Warn America

Not long ago I taught a woman’s Bible study on the topic of Deception and Discernment and wanted to share a bit of that with you:
The world has colorfully painted a picture of what women should look like in today’s world. Images are splashed upon the trendy magazines with pictures of women in suits, holding briefcases in heels, dropping off their wee ones to daycare before the stop off at Starbucks for their daily hit of java.
