If you are just starting a family or well on the way you don’t want to miss this series. i’ve only known Rachael Joy Tapp for a few years, but it seems like we’ve been friends forever. She has wisdom beyond her years. She lives in the Panhandle with her husband, Joshua and their children.
Here is her own bio in her own words.
Here is the series announcement.
Latest installment to this series is on Learning to Feed the Family in Article six: Dear Mama, Learning to Feed the Family
Finding Gems & Sharing Them – Dear Mama Series
[Editor’s note: This series is a must for young families – please share and connect to help each other along the way! Look for the Dear Mama Graphic for links to latest updates!]
The movie is compelling on so many levels. It was refreshing to see a journalist actually dig for a story and admit when he makes a mistake! The story is about Lee Strobel and his efforts to research and debunk the ‘myth’ of Christianity and faith. He is a writer and a seeker of truth from beginning to end.
And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
If you are paying attention you can almost see the hound of heaven pounding on the door of his heart. You can see the prayers of his wife materialize on the screen. You can feel the agony of a man’s journey to find the truth even when it defies all he has built his life around.
Don’t miss this movie when it is in your area. You and your entire family will enjoy and probably learn something too. Did I mention there is a subplot that is as compelling as the main story. It revolves around a court case and a media story that causes his conviction wrongfully. I wonder how many of us would have had the courage to admit we were wrong and correct the matter?
Here is the website about the movie.
If you stay for the credits you will find out what happened to each of the main characters and even the children. If you want to read the book, it is available on Amazon. Click on pic below for more info or to order online.
Finding Gems & Sharing Them: The Case for Christ — one Man’s Journey to Find the Truth
… a story about potential help for cats experiencing kidney failure
by Sandra Crosnoe
Ivory is 15 years old (2017) and recently she was getting pretty lethargic, loosing weight and not grooming herself properly, so I took her to Arrowhead Veterinary Clinic in Dewey on January 25th. They did a blood analysis on her and found she was in early stage renal (kidney) failure. This is the story of how we discovered stem cell therapy and what that process has been like for Ivory.

William Norman Grigg died this afternoon. He was a journalist, broadcaster, editor, musician, father, husband, and self-described Christian Individualist. He was also my hero.
Will’s main beat was stories about individual victims of the state: particularly Americans who have been unjustly imprisoned or wrongfully assaulted by government officers. His research for each article was exhaustive. From his home in Idaho, he traveled all around the northwest to get the story in person. He would get to know each subject personally, and seek face-to-face interviews with their powerful persecutors. His tireless work has saved several innocent lives from being slowly drained away in prison. He wrote so many pieces about Christopher Tapp, a man who has spent two decades in prison for a murder he did not commit, that the Libertarian Institute, where he was managing editor, will publish a whole book collecting them.

Color me livid. We have lost before we even get started if we don’t correct this matter.
Let me see if I can show you how this game actually works.
Case 1: I say lets cut taxes 20% and you come back with how about 10% and we settle on 15%. You think you won because we cut taxes a little. Spending wasn’t reduced one iota in this scenario! The revenue will have to be raised somehow by this generation or the next.
Amount saved 0%
Case 2: What if the opening gambit had been let’s cut spending 20% and you come back with how about 10% and we settle on 15%. In this scenario we both won and spending was actually reduced a little right here and now.
Amount saved 15%
Do you see the difference? Please think about it. Please shift the conversation. Talking about taxes is a trap and you loose no matter what the compromise position is.
