A Christian Perspective on Exploring Sexuality

Originally posted on Go Fish Ministries, Inc:

Some Christians find it hard to address the issue of sexuality either for themselves and their spouses or to their children.   But in order to have a healthy view of sexuality, Christians must learn to communicate on this important subject.  The first thing that Christian families should know is that God created us as sexual beings.  Humans did not create sex, God did.  God designed us with a sex drive for the enjoyment and continuation of the human species.   It is when human beings distort our sexuality that it becomes a “dirty” thing.  Sex is a good thing when it is a part of a healthy marriage enveloped in love and acceptance.  Sex ideally should wait until marriage, as this is the way God intended it, but sometimes in our human nature we fail to keep God’s original plan. It is the hope of most Christians that their children…

A Christian Perspective of Puberty: Girls Growing Up Pure

Mom of 8 Parenting Little People

Puberty is the physical process of growing from a girl to a young woman. At sometime between the age of 9 and 18, but usually around 12 years of age for most girls, your body will begin to change to look more like that of an adult. Puberty usually begins earlier in girls than in boys, who usually begin to mature between 14 and 18 years of age, so you may be taller than most boys your own age for a while. Some girls may begin to change before or after their friends, but this is normal in most cases.

Some of the changes you can expect are hair growth in the genital area (private area), and under the arms, height, adult sized hands and feet, and a more curvy appearance with breast development. At this time your reproductive system matures and you are…

The Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey

Why is it that people in civilized countries have such horrific health problems?  Because we eat so many refined and processed foods, which are far removed from their more natural ancestors.  We eat refined flour, refined sugar, white rice and many other foods from which all the good stuff has been removed.  It’s not only these unhealthy foods that we eat, but the healthy foods that we don’t eat, which causes many of our health concerns today.  We need to include in our daily diet a good portion of natural foods, including fruits and vegetable grown from our own gardens, in order to promote longevity of life and prevent many health problems.  Another way to add a natural source of vitamins and minerals to our diet is to include apple cider vinegar…

Why Women and their Partners should Stop Smoking, Now!

Cigarette smoking

Image via Wikipedia

Cigarette smoking causes problems for women by increasing their PMS symptoms, causing infertility problems, and risking the health of their babies.  According to a 2008 University of Massachusetts study, smokers are more than twice as likely to develop premenstrual syndrome (PMS) than non-smokers. Women who began smoking before age 15 reported suffering from severe PMS – backaches, bloating, breast tenderness, acne, severe cramps, headaches and mood swings. The smoking habit affects the levels of several hormones involved in the menstrual cycle, such as estrogen and progesterone, and irregular cycles increase with the number of cigarettes smoked. Smokers on birth-control pills are nearly 50% more likely to have spotting or bleeding.

In addition to PMS difficulties, female smokers may have a harder time getting pregnant, and male smokers generally have a low sperm count, so smoking is a danger to your fertility. According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine “Smoking…

No Excuse for Non-reporting of Childhood Sexual Abuse

The recent Penn State scandal concerning the issue of non-reportingchildhood sexual abuse by Joe Paterno and others, who failed to report their knowledge of Jerry Sandusky‘s abuse of eight young boys to law enforcement was a shock to many people.  But those of us who have lived through sexual abuse and care about these issues were not so shocked.  Many of us lived through times when sexual abuse of children was swept under the family rug and frequently went unreported.  The perpetrator simply moved on to new victims because he wasn’t reported by those who knew of his prior victimization.

What many people fail to acknowledge is that there is a federal law against…

Do Lesbians put Themselves at Risk for Breast Cancer?

Breast implant: Mammographs: Normal breast (left) and cancerous breast (right). (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I was once told that lesbians have fewer health risks than any other population. One connection I wonder if anyone has noticed, is the fact that lesbians who choose not to have children, may be at a higher risk for breast cancer.  The CDC website acknowledges, “Women who have not had children and have not breast-fed, have not used oral contraceptives, and are older when they first give birth – all factors more likely to affect lesbians and bisexual women – are also at a slightly higher risk.”

The link between abortion and breast cancer has been studied for some time now and is pretty well known at present by those of us who have paid attention to this issue. Researchers have admitted that the reasons for an abortion-cancer link are biologically plausible. Not one researcher has ever tried…

Are You Mom Enough? Yes, I Am!

Are You Mom Enough? Yes, I Am!

 

The question was recently asked on the cover of Time Magazine, “Are you Mom enough?” The illustration on the cover was of a mother breastfeeding her 3 year old son.  I found this refreshing to say the least! An article actually celebrating motherhood!

Motherhood to me was not just a small portion of my life.  It was my life for many years!  I spent the better portion of my life either pregnant, breastfeeding, or both.  From 1983-2006 I was in the mother mode.  It was rare if I had a month or two that I was not doing one or the other of those mothering tasks.

Over the years I birthed eight beautiful children into this world, and nursed each of them until they weaned on their own, some with more encouragement than others! God said, “Be fruitful and multiply” and I…

The Women and Children Yeshua Loved and Counseled

The Women and Children Yeshua Loved and Counseled

In the Christ’s ministry, Yeshua, loved and counseled many women, often addressing their social standing in ways that would have been considered inappropriate according to the practices of the day. The interactions between the Christ and women were out of the ordinary for the Jewish culture of this time and place. Women and children were primarily treated as property by the men of Israel, though the Greek women generally had a bit more freedom. Women and children had virtually no rights, were not usually acknowledged or addressed by men in public, nor did they have a public voice. And yet, the Christ both acknowledged and spoke to them in public and private, did not shun their words and actions of love and devotion, and afforded them considerable respect, which was virtually unknown at the time.

In every interaction between Christ…

What’s the Evidence? Was Jesus Christ a Real Person and is the Bible a Myth? (Kindle)

What’s the evidence? Was Jesus Christ a real person and is the Bible just a myth? These questions have probably been asked by most people at one time or another in their lives. We owe it to ourselves to delve into the truth and find the answers that we can both live and die with. The answer to these questions has eternal consequences. Whether to believe or not to believe could determine whether you find yourself in heaven or hell. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to God except by Me.” Was he just a man, or was He God in the flesh? What do you believe? Are you willing to…

On Discipline of Children

“Under the horse chestnut tree”, 1 print : drypoint and aquatint, color ; (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The subject of discipline is one of conflict in many families today. Clear guidelines need to be agreed on and implemented for peace to reign between the family members and especially between the two parents in a family. Mothers, more often than not, have a nurturing, but sometimes too lenient attitude toward discipline, while fathers all too often are procrastinating and authoritarian disciplinarians. Fathers and Mothers often see things from different perspectives, but God designed us that way to balance the scales of discipline in a just and fair manner. Discipline should be swift, just, and sure, but not without mercy. To be effective discipline should be implemented as soon as possible after the violation of a clear house rule. The violation must always justify the punishment, or in an old cliché, ” let…

As a result of the Chinese government’s barbaric attack on mothers and their children with their One Child policy, there are some 100 million fewer females than males in China today. With this great need of females in China, I was wondering what could possibly be done to help.  I was thinking about this the other day and also thinking about China being one of the greatest mission fields in the world.  Many of the unreached people groups are in southern China. I was just thinking how we could reach these people for Jesus, when an idea flashed right before my eyes.  I thought, what if we could get 100 million young Christian ladies, who were willing to risk their lives for the gospel to marry 100 million young Chinese men. Now, so as not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers, what if these Chinese men…

In Genesis the world was made

In Leviticus God taught holiness
and obedience to the Law
Numbers counts 12 tribes of Israel

For those of us who struggle with motivation to wholehearted service to God.

The preacher knocked upon my door, asking if he could come in
But I just said I had no time, “Please come back again”
The Sunday School teacher called on the phone to invite me Sunday morning
But I only thought that I’d rather sleep in, the class just seemed so boring
The choir director asked me to sing, but I said I had no tune
I was just a Sunday Morning Christian, but I’d try to do more, soon
On Sunday, I listened to the preacher’s sermon, and I heard God’s voice to me calling
But embarrassed, I just stood there, my heart just kept on stalling
Then every time I heard the Word I remembered that very day
I remembered how I felt the Lord and told Him, “Not today!”
Later while napping…
