One teen wrote, “I’ve been preoccupied these past months about my sexual orientation. This all began with my good friend Joe. We were very close friends; we shared everything with each other. Then, one night when he came into his room half-naked, he looked…different to me. He didn’t feel like a normal friend to me anymore. Throughout the months, I felt these strange feelings and looked at him somewhat differently…Girls are beautiful, but I’m not looking for girlfriends. I just like girls as normal friends, though I feel sexually attracted to them. Sexually, I think I feel more attracted to guys than girls…I guess it depends. I’m uncertain. I can assure you, however, that these feelings aren’t just sexual impulses, it goes deeper than that. It’s an emotional and romantic sensation. My question is, how can I know with certainty about my sexual orientation? This question haunts me.”…
My heart is breaking for our daughters.
I’m aware that it is likely that I will receive negative reactions from readers, however I feel the need to speak out. Please do not confuse my thoughts as snooty legalism or me thinking I have all the answers – it is that I care deeply about our young girls.
I want to share a remarkable true story of a courageous woman winning a husband the way the Lord led her. I pray this will edify and encourage each and everyone of you that is living in a difficult marriage, but I am not speaking to those in an any kind of abusive situation! Please go to a safe place and get help. The Lord is for you and will help you – call on His name! Also, visit here.

Are you aging? Or do you prefer to call it maturing like I do?
Maturing happens to us all. I have chosen to embrace it and do what I can instead of wringing my hands and crying. Frankly, when I stopped coloring my prematurely gray hair, it was a compelling force in my life. It’s been incredibly freeing to be who I really am….
Mom, you do not struggle alone. My story of infertility and late pregnancies at 40 (we lost one twin) and at 42 (we had twins) made me instantly identify with the following story and want to share it here. Thank you, Jeanne Harrison, for giving courage and insight.)
