Welcome to my blog!

I’ve wanted to do a website of practical advice for single Christian women for almost 20 years now. In my 20’s, I was disappointed by the dearth of information for single Christian women that didn't involve finding the perfect husband. There was very little practical information about living life in general, and I wanted to fill that void.

A lot of information on this blog may seem like common sense, but a lot of women, especially young women just starting out on their own, really don’t know how to balance a checkbook or clean their home in a practical way. I hope to cover a variety of topics, both practical and spiritual. I am really excited about this blog!

On My Soapbox

Today I exercised the right to vote. This is a right I do not take lightly. Men and women fought and even died to give me this right. I consider it a slap in their faces to stay home on voting day just because I didn't keep up on the issues or I just don't feel like going.

America is the greatest nation on the face of the planet. We have more freedoms here than any other nation offers. The libtards are trying to take those freedoms away from us, and it's our job as Christians to vote for godly individuals to lead our nation. Will they win? That's in God's hands. But if we sit home and whine, "Oh, my vote won't matter," then guess what? We just hand the government over to those who want to take away our freedoms.

 If you don't believe me, look at the current attack on the Catholic church by the Obama administration. He insisted that Catholic organizations (mainly hospitals and universities) be forced to provide birth control (including abortifacients) and sterilization procedures to their employees. These are two things the Catholic church consider sinful and against God's will.

The issue here is not whether Christians can use birth control or whether sterilization is wrong. It is about the state tromping on the beliefs of the church. The concept of "separation of church and state" (albeit a false concept not actually appearing in the Constitution) was to protect the church from the state, not vice-versa.

So, ladies, when you sit home on voting day, you are putting our country in danger. Maybe you think that one little vote won't matter. Well, if hundreds, thousands, even a couple of million of us put that one little vote together, we can influence the outcome of the election. We can protect our country (and more importantly, our religious freedoms) from those who would like to take our rights away.

By the way, Obama's response to the public outcry against the birth control requirement was to transfer the requirement from the religious organizations to the insurance companies. As many of the insurance companies are also owned by the church, this did little good. It only kicked the can down the road a bit more.

So ladies, let's get this guy out of office in November! Go vote, and vote for a conservative!
