Hello my praying friends,
We can all remember being little girls. Some of you had good families and lived a carefree life for your growing up years. Others suffered pain and separation from one or both parents. You know how vulnerable and dependent you were.
The other day I was on my prayer walk around my neighborhood in Bend. I saw coming towards me a father and his little girl, about 4. It was after Easter
and she had on a big fluffy orange dress and tights...
Greetings to my praying friends,
Like spitting in to a hurricane. That is the view many have of ever slowing the flow of pornography much less of eliminating the evil completely. We, the people, when aroused, can exert great pressure. Example: Porn sites have been eliminated in libraries. Restrictions have been placed on airline passengers to prevent exposure of porn to others on the plane via their computers or i-pads...Read More
Hello my praying friends,
This week we are looking at some new sites. First go to www.Money.cnn.com. There is an article on how pimps use social media that is frightening.
Click on money.cnn.com/2013/02/27/technology/social/pimps-social-networks-index.html. You will see how easily it starts with a cute guy wanting to be friends with a young girl. She sees that he is cute so she falls for it. He soon makes her think he is her boyfriend and wants to meet her somewhere...Read More
I have been directing my messages to fathers. It seems God has expectations relating to fathers to teach, to direct, and to model for their children how they should live. Fathers are directed to teach God’s ways rather than allow the secular world to form their thinking and moral values. I feel we have just scratched the surface on this subject.
Recently I have encountered the issue of angry fathers...Read More
Dear praying friends,
I would like to draw your attention to the appointment of a new FCC Chairman. Please if you are in the US voice your opinion about needing someone in this important office who cares about what children are seeing on television. Pray God’s person will be appointed.
Polaris project is the most effective group fighting sex trafficking in the US. Please pray about donating a small amount each month as the King directs to help them.
I received a petition to sign this week against Hilton Hotels. They do not follow federal law and are putting on their televisions hardcore pornography.

A common question for parents is: How old should a daughter be to go out on a “date” that is one boy, one girl, one car, and a destination? What time should he bring her home? Dating in the western world is the usual way in our culture to find a life’s mate. In the Eastern world many marriages are arranged by parents.
This is a system also with many faults and can cause much abuse for the woman involved. How successful is the Western world’s way? We have 50% of the marriages ending in divorce even in the church world. This doesn’t convince me that we have it right either.
Is the dating system at fault? Perhaps, but more likely, the issue is about how the young people are taught and prepared to be alone with the opposite sex.
What values have they been gi...Read More
The goal: Sexual Purity
The Prize: Being a virgin on your wedding night.
It is true that staying a virgin has lost its importance in today’s culture. But not in God’s eyes.

Greetings brothers in Christ,
As you know, I have been writing to educate you and inform you re: pornography and the harm it does in the lives of thousands of young men.
Today I would like to expose one of the underpinnings for porn’s popularity. It is simply that young men go there to get educated about sex. The average age of boys on porn is 11 years old. The usual experience is to have little or no information transferred by parents to their growing children. They expect the school health class to do that for them.

Hello my friends,
Can we really blame pornography (print or internet) for the devastation in marriages and families? There are so many stories of this being true.
One recent story involved a professional musician who left his wife and children for two 20 yr. old women. The second story involves a mature man married with family. One night he went out where he knew he could find a “for hire” sex partner. He was picked up and arrested for soliciting sex. He was a Christian leader of youth at his church, a business man, a husband, and a father. Imagine the stress and trauma he caused his family, friends, business people, and the church which trusted him to lead their children. His wife decided to forgive him. The marriage held but the rest of his life was permanently scarred. Pornography was at the bottom of his downfall.
How many hundreds of other stories are out there?
All of these stories have at the center of them a man who solicits sex. He is called a john.
I have foun...Read More
