What To Do First to Make a Profit

The PF Women Team at our Annual Team Retreat  ~ 2018 Today on Seth Godin's blog, he said: It's tempting to decide to make a profit first, then invest in training, people, facilities, promotion, customer service and most of all, doing important work. In general, though, it goes the other way. Yes, it does. If you are waiting to make a profit before you do these things, in my experience you're  not going to make a profit. So many organizations, ministries and churches are struggling with financial issues. I know your pain. As anyone who follows our story knows, our ministry was in a ton of debt four years ago when I came on as director.  Since that time, we've gotten out of debt and turned a profit every year.  God has done amazing things through out team, for which we give Him the glory! I find that what Seth is saying here is absolutely true, with one disclaimer. For Christian leaders, spiritual disciplines must always be first. Before we started inve

Where is the outrage???

Yesterday I read an article from by Mike Strain entitled, "Where's the Casey Anthony Outrage When It Comes To Abortion?"  I'd  like to thank Jesse Caris for posting it, and note that I couldn't agree more!  (I can't link to the article here because I'm blogging from my phone but if you go to and put the title of the article in the search box it will come up.)

All this outrage does pose a very reasonable question to the millions who are raging.  What IS the difference between Caylee and the millions who have been aborted?

One deceived Christian posted on their facebook yesterday that they: "don't understand why everybody's so whipped up about this verdict...Casey's actions just led Caylee straight into the arms of Jesus, so what's the big deal even if she did do it?"  Mmmkay...remind me to keep my kids and future grandkids away from you and to furthermore call your pastor and tell him he should think twice before allowing you to work in the nursery or with kids...not to mention I'd like to take off my high heels and earrings and give you a smack down, since you evidently believe killing kids is no big deal!!


I once had a conversation with a man who was in a top leadership post of the Pro Choice Action Network. Interestingly enough he shared this same warped theology that it's no big deal to abort children because if we are Christians, we believe they are going to heaven, so it's a win-win for all.  


Allow me to point out that without exception everyone who is pro choice or pro abortion is ALIVE or did live a life and hold those views before they passed away.  They all got their chance to live.  Kind of convenient for them, huh?  It's a bit of a bias to say you're alright with murder when you are the one who is blessed to be alive.

What about equal rights for women?  I've had pro-choice people ask me about this in fact it's usually their first question since anyone who knows me well knows I am very pro gender equality.  I answer that absolutely, I AM for women's rights!  I am for ALL women's rights for ALL women-- ones that are born and yet to be born, those in the womb or out.  I am for the rights of women living now or in the future.  I am not only standing for my rights and my daughter's rights  but for all who would like the opportunity to come after us and have the same right to life that we had.  What about equal rights for unborn women?

Mike Strain, I join you.  I am not just outraged for Caylee...I am outraged for millions. 

I feel compelled to speak for those too little to speak up for themselves.  I hope you feel the same.  

Don't be silent.  Speak up.   Do something.

Amen!! I so agree with you! Our society is so mixed up and crazy. We have people thinking it is okay to kill babies in the womb, but will chain themselves to a tree to save some land. I hope all these outraged people will picket outside the abortion clinics, vote pro life, and march on Washington.

But Deanna, the sooner it it gets to Christ's appearing, the nuttier this world will become. Evil called good, and good called evil.

I'll have to visit that site and link up the article on my blog. Thanks!

Thanks for spreading this....I tend to get frustrated with the double standards and media bias that plagues our country. The nation has become so desensitized. The media sets the agenda and sets the moral compass and it grieves the heart of God.

Some people will never understand this...

And that's okay. Just let us be as we lavish love upon the fur-kids of the world. It doesn't mean we don't care about people. We do care. In fact most of the people I know who are great pet lovers are also the greatest philanthropists. If you're not a dog lover, you might not understand the overwhelming intensity that many of us felt about Tank's reunion this past week. You might think we've lost our marbles. That's okay, we think you've lost your heart. ;)  Before I go on with this post, let me say that we were delighted that CBS 10 posted the video and article about Tank and his Celebration Church reunion yesterday. Click here to watch it. (But then come back!) If you haven't realized it, there is a revolution in America about dogs. Dogs have always been loved and known as the most loyal companions ~ "man's best friend". But things have gone way beyond this. Dogs aren't just dogs or friends anymore. They are family me

Fifty Shades of No Way

This weekend, the Fifty Shades of Grey movie will be released and millions of women are expected to flock to the theat er s.  I will not be one of those women.   As a leader of women , some have asked me about this movie. The following is my thoughtful response. Fifty Shades of Grey has topped best-seller lists around the world. The book series has sold over 100 million copies worldwide, and been translated into 52 languages. It set the record as the fastest-selling paperback of all time.   Is Fifty Shades of Grey just a harmless book or movie? Although n o one seems to be debating this fact, let’s first establish that it’s pornography.  And not just porn, but a genre that is even more dangerous for women. The book glorifies a female character that is controlled and abused by her partner.   Who is excited about this book and mov ie? Hmmmm….you might be surprised. Many women and girls in our churches have read it. Sadly, I am even aware of

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are not
