The Movie: NOAH

Well, I don’t know about you but this past few days I’ve been reading some reviews and reports about the movie, Noah, that opened on Friday. It’s fascinating to me how many differing views there are from the Christian population alone. Honestly, I’ve been disappointed to read some of them. I will state here I haven’t yet watched the film but I’m sharing only my thoughts and perspective regarding all the hoopla! First, let me acknowledge that there are many who bristle that the movie is not a perfect depiction of scripture. It’s not even close as I understand. But I wonder why that gets so many people turned inside out. Many of the Christian fictions books we read by the millions also are filled with a large amount of creative license. But, that’s not what I want to consider today. For all of us who are married to Pre-believers,... Read more →

Watching Fireproof reduced me to a puddle of blubbers and that doesn't happen too often to this gal. That yearning for our unbelieving spouse to one day know Jesus and to stand up and lead our home is always hidden right under the surface. I shut off... Read more →

Television and our Kids

So I’m bugged. And I’m going to have to chat about it. I’m opening up a bucket of worms in controversy. But if we as believers don’t talk about some of this stuff how are we going to help one another? So I’m bugged about television. On several levels. I may not have all of my facts in order but I do have my heart in order on this subject so here we go. Skins. MTV’s new racy show "Skins" is everywhere. Not only did its premiere episode attract more than 3 million viewers, it's been written about in hundreds of newspapers, magazines and blogs. That's because advertisers are dropping like flies; Shick, Wrigley, and today, Subway, all pulled the plug. That makes seven so far. The sexually charged show features high school students who routinely have sex, drink alcohol and do drugs. The show is rated TV-MA and includes... Read more →
