I am also trying to be a Christian to the best of my abilities...






“Your statutes are forever right;
give me understanding that I may live.

I call with all my heart; answer me, O LORD,
and I will obey your decrees.
I call out to you; save me
and I will keep your statutes.
I rise before dawn and cry for help;
I have put my hope in your word.
My eyes stay open through the watches of the night,
that I may meditate on your promises.”

Psalm 119: 144-148



Jesus said:
"If you love me, you will obey what I command...he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him."

John 14: 15, 21





The Armor of God

"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.

Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should."

Ephesians 6: 10-20

Me Passion:
I just have this yearning in me to help women in crisis pregnancy situations with the pre and post effects on their bodies and on their babies. Medical, scientific data about fetal development and a woman’s options are not very thoroughly given to the women in these situations. In fact, much false data is being given, which upsets me greatly. One of my goals is to help women in this area understand what their decisions really involve, give them all the information about each of their options, and also provide professional medical services to them and their preborn children. In addition, providing resources for financial help, housing, and child-rearing education would also be something I would like to provide for these woman and their families.

Also, I like pickles. Dill being the best there is. Bubbies Dill Pickles being the best brand. Mmm hmm. They be just like the ones my grandma used to make.
