I am currently reading a book called "Created to be His Help Meet " by Debi Pearl (Debi and her husband Michael have a ministry called No Greater Joy that can be accessed at www.nogreaterjoy.org). While we were living in NH my husband's friend ordered us a bunch of their literature knowing that we are Christian's (it was free for military if you requested it, not sure if it still is). We listened to one of Michael Pearl's sermon's and WOW...I could immediately tell that the No Greater Joy ministry was extremely "old school" aka conservative. This was not "feel good" religion. This was Biblical straight talk like I hadn't heard before. I told my husband to turn it off... I couldn't listen to it. Not because I disagreed with what Mr. Pearl was saying, but because it was too harsh...too raw. I wasn't mature enough to handle it.

Today I read an article on partial-birth abortion. I always knew that partial-birth abortion was an abortion that was preformed during the end of the 2nd or beginning of the 3rd trimester of pregnancy, but I never knew the exact details of the procedure itself. I honestly don't know what to say...

Lately I have been needing to express thoughts and opinions that I only share with a select few and otherwise keep to myself. Some of these are pretty simple and straight-forward while others are controversial and completely go against the grain of our selfish culture. I just need an outlet and since conventional journaling (which I used to do religiously) has become a luxury as I am rarely able or willing to pull out the old journal and pen, I figured this would be a more convenient option.
