Basic Training: Abortion

Abortion was a subject I had not planned to share this morning. However, when I opened my email and read it, I felt it not only timely, but necessary This is one of the most well-thought out and well-written article about Christians and abortions, I have come across in a long time.

I rarely write on abortion. But it’s not because I don’t feel strongly about it. It’s because it seems like it should be a given. That Christians shouldn’t have to be told that we don’t support abortion any more than we have to be told to breathe or eat.

If you’ve ever participated in youth or Christian school activities with a dress code, a rule of thumb that’s frequently used to help kids determine whether a particular outfit is too short, too low-cut, etc., is, “If you have to ask, it’s probably not appropriate.”

My Heart for God

This begins a new adventure for me. I have always been more of a pen and paper kind of girl, sharing my thoughts and dreams in journals, lots and lots of journals. But as my heart is molded and changed by God, so have my thoughts and dreams evolved. I probably won’t write like any other “blogger”, I have no experience with it, in full disclosure, but I feel it is something God is calling me to do…..so I do.
