Where is the outrage???

Yesterday I read an article from lifenews.com 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 lifenews.com 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!!

Seriously.

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.  

Really?

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.

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

I'm Just Being Transparent...

This year at the Stronger Conference, a young minister stopped me as I was walking out of the room at the conclusion of a workshop and she said, "I want to tell you something..." (I was all ears.) She said, "Do you notice how many of the speakers this weekend are saying, "Now, I'm just being transparent when I tell you..." or "I'm just keepin' it real..." I nodded yes. In fact, I mentioned that I was one of those speakers. I think I probably said a few times in both my keynote message and my workshop that I was just "keepin' it real." After I affirmed that yes, I had noticed that -- she said, "Do you know why they have to do that? They do it...and you do it, because so many people don't keep it real. So many in leadership aren't transparent, Deanna. That's why all these people speaking here feel an urge to declare their transparency.." I let her know that usually when I say, "I'm just kee

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
