The hard truth is your teen could have an abortion without your consent,but would need permission to see the film Unplanned.
The film Unplanned seems to be so taboo that many major networks refused to air the commercials. The film was forced to take an “R” rating before it’s release since it depicts an abortion. There are countless films I do not care to see because they contain nudity, foul language, sexual situations, and violence. I would think films such as these would fall under an “R” rating. Commercials for these films are heavily aired before they hit the box office..
What has happened to our society when a film that aims to share the other side of abortion is shut out, while films that encourage rebellion are supported?
Many woman do not receive both sides of the story when they go to a clinic.. They are not told that the ‘fetus” feels pain, if they ask.. And are not advised that they may suffer post-abortion depression. And for the most part, the clinics do not discuss adoption as an alternative. I realize there are many absent fathers, yet in any case the father has no say.
I believe anyone considering an abortion should have all the facts before they make that critical choice.. not just scripted words painted rosey, to support their right to do so.
Society has changed so much that it often discourages parental involvement in a teens life. Most are rebellious yet still need guidance to make good choices that will affect their future. Did you ever imagine that there would come a day when parents had fewer rights over their children than the state in which they reside?.. I fear the day has come.

Two years ago I posted Infant Dies From Benadryl hoping that parents or caregivers would heed the warning.
Recently in Vermont a day care worker gave 6-month old Harper Rose Briar Diphenhydramine an active ingredient found in Benadryl. Infants are dying because care givers want them to sleep, and give them medications. To many have used this product that clearly states it is not intended for children under 2-years old. To make matters worse after a child dies the one who administers the medication receives very little jail time, an average of 2 1/2 years. Irresponsible actions resulting in death should be considered man slaughter. I am asking that you please sign my petition and spread the word because I am not on Facebook. This need’s 100,000 signatures in 30 days or it is dead in the water. Thank you so much for caring about children.
Seeing 11-year-old Ruby Kate helping senior citizens in a nursing home touched my heart..
So many elders spend their days alone looking forward to visits from friends or family, sadly for many there are none.. If you have spare time please consider volunteering at your local nursing home. Your presence can make so much difference in the lives of the lonely.
If you would like to read a touching story, please grab a tissue and visit Ruby Kate’s fund-raiser.

Give yourself the joy of giving this Christmas!
Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I love to give and it is the season of good tidings and great joy.
All across America we see organizations who gather to bring food and gifts to the less fortunate, but in India and Pakistan I do not know of any.
Christmas at the orphanage in India is a special time to gather for a meal with the widows and their children. Praveen and his family cook a meal for everyone and give gifts of clothing, hygene products, and tiffin boxes for school. It is a joyous time for the children because they do not receive gifts throughout the year as other children do. The children share their talents by performing song and dance, and they share the story of the birth of Christ.There are over 50 children who attend along with other needy elderly and widows. Please consider donating to this celebration. Please share the need with others who enjoy giving to spreed Christmas cheer.
In Pakistan Jamil is also gathering with area children who are in need. Jamil and his family give gifts of food, clothing, and toys to the children who attend their Christmas celebration. Jamil has contacted me and relayed he would need $100.00 to reach their goal for the Christmas celebration. Please consider donating to his cause.
I hope you all have a Christmas filled with happiness and warmth. I pray you will gather with others and share the gift of love. It is the one gift we can all give that would cost us nothing, yet is the greatest gift of all!
There has been much devastation in the several fires that have swept through California.
There is a heavy burden on many as they attempt to start over with only the clothing on their backs. L.A. Marzulli is an author and speaker in the ministry. While he was away at a speaking engagement his family home was lost.
I ask that you please share his Go Fund Me link on your social media.
I pray that all that have suffered loss will find restoration, and all who have lost loved ones will be comforted.
Thank you. 🙂
Hi everyone! I am here to share the good news from India and hope you enjoy the heartfelt thanks to those who have given to the cause!
First I will share the good news of Harshitha.
Harshitha came to live with Praveen and his family as a young girl, and they raised her well. Praveen has shared the news of her wedding celebration in their home. Children grow so quickly, it seems like just yesterday she was graduating.
Praveen also shared the news of the children and widows. Praveen and his family attempt to give monthly support to the widows in their church who struggle with daily needs. Praveen was also happy that he could provide the children with toothbrushes and paste. It brings great joy to help others in need and to see a child you have raised start a new life of independence. This is one more child rescued from the streets of India, and this is a great blessing.

Have you seen people who are just so happy? When you see these people, it seems that they are just glowing with energy, life, and hope.
Now, you might wonder what makes these people happy.
Do you know that there’s one common thing that all happy people do? This one thing is something that is indispensable in their lives. In fact, I would venture to say that without doing this one thing, happiness would never last. You might be happy for some time, but it will wane after a few days or weeks because this one thing is neglected.
Do you want to know what this one thing is? Let me tell you. The one common thing ALL happy people do is to give.
Yes, you read that right. How can such as simple four-letter word help you achieve not just happiness, but also joy in your heart?
Let me explain.
The Apostle Paul wrote:
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life (Galatians 6:7-8).
This is one of the most important universal and spiritual laws that you should always remember: YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW.
Now, why am I telling you this? It is because when you give, you are sowing happiness. You are sowing goodness. You are sowing blessings.
Giving is such a remarkable act of kindness that has a unique way of making the giver happier than the receiver.
That’s why it is not difficult to see why Christ said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35).
If you really want to be happy, make other people happy. You can give not just money, but also your talent, knowledge, time, and energy. When you make other people happy, happiness will eventually find its way back to you!
There’s no doubt: the happiest people on earth are the most generous people. The best thing about being generous is that you will never run out of blessings to share.
Notice what the wisest human king of Israel mentioned:
There is one who scatters, yet increases more;
And there is one who withholds more than is right,
But it leads to poverty.
THE GENEROUS SOUL WILL BE MADE RICH,
And he who waters will also be watered himself (Proverbs 11:24-25).
Well, human nature will tell us otherwise. It will never agree that giving leads to happiness. When we look at our society today, they are geared towards the way of getting rather than the way of giving.
They thought that having more will make them happy. Thus, they spend their whole life chasing the wrong stuff and filling their hearts with material things. However, by the end of the day, they still feel empty.
No wonder we see a miserable and sad world!
Don’t fall into the trap of believing that the more you have, the happier you’ll become. God shows us how to be happy, joyful, and blessed. We can only achieve that by giving ourselves to others and serving them.
So if you want to be happy, give. It is one of the best investments you’ll make in your life!

Wise giving is a true investment!
I am sure you have read the story that went viral.. Johnny Bobbitt a homeless man from Philly who stopped to help a woman who ran out of gas. Johnny walked several blocks and spent his last $20 to bring Katelyn McClure some gasoline. It was a feel good story that didn’t have such a happy ending. Katelyn McClure and her boyfriend Mark D’Amico were so grateful for Johnny’s selfless act, that they struck up a friendship in the day’s that followed. Katelyn found Johnny at the same intersection where she ran out of gas, and would bring him food and gift cards. Katelyn and Mark then went on to start a Go Fund Me page to reward Johnny for what he had done. Sadly when the money started rolling in to the tune of over 400,000 the friendship between the trio took a turn south.
Johnny Bobbitt claims the couple did not give him all the money they collected from donors. Further research shows that instead of buying Johnny a home and his dream truck, the couple instead bought him a camper that he parked on their property. The money they did give Johnny he spent helping friends, and admitted to spending some on drugs. In the end a judge ordered the couple Katelyn McClure and Mark D’Amico to return the remainder of the money to Johnny Bobbitt, but all the money was gone.. The couple it seems spent half the money they had collected.. In their defense on the issue they claimed Johnny was using the money for drugs, and not being responsible with the money they gave him.
Go Fund Me has been a good place for a man and his money to be soon departed.. Among many great causes by honest people, there is a ration of scams and really ridiculous pleas for money, such as”buy me some beer”.
I realize GFM can not keep everyone in check, but after reading the number of people who reported fraudulent campaigns that were ignored, it disturbs me.
A popular blog named Go Fraud Me has compiled many of the shady campaigns. Although they use some colorful language.. I feel it is good to raise awareness.
Back in the day it was hard to raise money for a legitimate cause, it took many months of bake sales, bottle drives, and spaghetti dinners. With today’s social media anyone can ask for money and prey on the hearts of people along with slipping their fingers into your wallet.. Weather people believe it or not, we all have to answer for what we have done in life. The love of money can sear the conscience, and lies to get it leaves good people feeling duped and let down. A word of wisdom, honesty is always the best policy.
