Moms, Daughters and Periods

It’s that moment all women remember. For some of us, it was the panic of thinking we were dying at the first sign of blood. For others, it started horrifically at the wrong time; like a pool party with your cute new suit. Maybe your mom said something to you like “welcome to the curse honey”. Maybe you read in a book that women are indeed cursed (thanks to Eve). When bloating, PMS and cramps set in, you might have even started to believe that too. But the reality is, that God designed our bodies the way He did. He called us “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). Our bodies are specially designed. Now like anyone, there are days I don’t feel like this. We’re constantly being bombarded with extreme messages from the feminist movement, telling us that everything about our bodies is wrong. Some days it’s harder than others […]

Periods gone right: why you don’t want to miss the God-factor

I was in a dilemma. I was getting my hair done, and my stylist shared how girl’s on average start their periods two years younger than their mothers did. I was shocked, whipped my head around and…..went home with a completely different hair cut than I had planned. My oldest daughter was 8 at the time. If I started my period at 11, that meant she could start in a year. I couldn’t imagine breaking into my sweet, innocent 8 year olds world, and giving her the adult details on body changes, periods, and babies. I remember being completely overwhelmed when I learned all the ‘facts of life’, and I wasn’t about to do the same to my baby. After some thought and prayer, I came to the conclusion maybe I should just talk to her about body changes and starting her period, and leave out some significant details about […]

He was the last one she suspected

He was the last person she ever suspected, but the evidence against her new husband was undeniable. The young mother of two little girls sobbed uncontrollably as her story unraveled. The man she thought was a loving husband and stepfather was now in jail – accused of repeatedly molesting one of her daughters. As a police officer and major crimes detective, I investigated numerous murders, suicides, accidental deaths, and brutal assaults. In my opinion, the physical, emotional, and sexual victimization of children is among the most despicable crimes. The apostle Paul, in his letter to the Romans, describes the natural progression of a culture bent on satisfying fleshly desires – a culture much like ours today. Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God he gave them over to a depraved mind to do what ought not to be done. They have become filled […]

How to know if a movie is OK for your kids

“But MOM, Jenna’s allowed to watch it!” How many times have we as parents heard that one? More times than we care to count. Helping our kids understand our reasoning behind limiting their movie choices is not out of unhealthy control, but out of love. A desire to shield them from inappropriate sexual content, crude humor and terrible morals are only a few of the reasons we pay attention to what they watch. For more information on the effects of media content on our kids and what you can do about it, we suggest Guardians of Purity. Here are a few broad guidelines by Julie Hiramine (based on her talk: “Through the Eyes of a Child”). Julie did large amounts of research on children’s brain development, and the way they interpret movies. These guidelines are based on her findings. For Ages 2-7, look for movies that have: Straightforward plots Inspirational stories with […]
