    Deterring Home Intruders

    Many folks state that if an intruder ever breaks into their home, they will simply shoot them. I don’t know about everyone else, but that sounds like a rather unpleasant experience to me. Therefore, I make a conscious effort to make my home an unappealing target. I take a few thoughtful steps to try and achieve this goal, many of…

    Infant Safe Haven Laws

    From the pro-abortion crowd, I often hear that abortion is the best, or even only, option for women with unwanted pregnancies. Oh, how wrong they are, for there are numerous options besides an abortion. The most obvious alternative to an abortion is to keep and raise the baby, allowing his/her love to fill your life and heart. Another obvious alternative…

    How UnPlanned Helped Me

    Earlier today I went and saw UnPlanned at my local theater. I wanted to help support pro-life causes and I figured this was a good way to go about it. After all, I pay $10 to see a Marvel movie once or twice a year and those movies are rather meaningless in the long run. So, why not spend $10…

    Memories Of My Children

    When I began vacuuming today I noticed my two year old son sitting on the rug by our stairs with a book in his lap. The book is about one-third the size of his entire body. As he sat there pouring over the pictures in his book, a peaceful yet intent expression on his face, the sun shone it’s light…

    Devaluing Life

    Gone are the days of abortion advocates claiming that what is being destroyed by an abortion is just a “clump of cells.” There can be no more arguing about the “viability” of an unborn baby’s life. Democrats just voted against legislation that would have protected infants born alive after an attempted abortion. A baby, living, breathing outside the womb can…

    True Humility

    There is no denying that the idea of humbling ourselves often puts a bad taste in our mouths. We like to think we are pretty good people and that we are usually right. When I stop to consider this, something about it seems odd to me. Here I am, nothing special by secular standards, finding it difficult to humble myself…

    March For Life

    The March for Life is the largest annual social activist event in America. Each year over a hundred thousand #ProLife Americans march on the nation’s capitol to show their support of an unborn baby’s right to life. What was originally meant as a one-time protest has blossomed into a full-fledged movement. The original March for Life was held on January…

    Social Media, Good Or Bad?

    Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Gab, Instagram, Reddit, Disqus, YouTube, and Tumblr are just a few of the most popular social media sites and apps available to us. A user can post their thoughts, opinions, pictures, and more for the whole world to see with just a few taps of their fingers. Never before has such accessibility to others been possible for…

    Compromise Not Required

    I cannot count how many times compromise has been preached to me through a movie, television show, song, or book. Growing up in public school, teachers constantly told me that compromise was always the best option. It seems people consider compromise to be the duct tape of relational problems, capable of fixing anything. Is it really, though? Is compromise always…

    Using Your Talents And Skills For Others

    I recently helped my sister move some furniture out of her apartment and it got me thinking about how we use our talents. Granted, carrying heavy and awkward things around may not require much talent. Yet, nonetheless, it got me thinking about it. What would be the benefit to our society if we all used our talents more for others…
