Thoughts from Job and Hurricane Irma

Screen Shot 2017-09-09 at 11.40.53 AMI found the Book of Job very comforting to me during the loss of so many of our family members lives. This morning as I was praying for my many friends in Florida I began reading it again. 

If you didn’t know, Job was a good man who bore unbearable tragedies. After suffering so much, he and his friends try to figure out why such disasters would happen to him. 

The book of Job asks us to look beyond blame, accept uncertainty, and trust God for what we cannot see or control. Basically look to Him in the midst of the storm.

Job was a wealthy man whose possessions included 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 yokes of oxen, 500 female donkeys, and tons of servants. 

Job also had 7 sons and three daughters. 

He lost them ALL for awhile….

Job 38  (Message Bible) Job 38 and the bible

 Job had been begging God to speak to him and God finally spoke from the EYE OF THE VIOLENT STORM:

 “Why do you confuse the issue?

    Why do you talk without knowing what you’re talking about?

Pull yourself together, Job!

    Up on your feet! Stand tall!

I have some questions for you,

    and I want some straight answers.

Where were you when I created the earth?

    Tell me, since you know so much!

Who decided on its size? Certainly, you’ll know that!

    Who came up with the blueprints and measurements?

How was its foundation poured,

    and who set the cornerstone,

While the morning stars sang in chorus

    and all the angels shouted praise?

And who took charge of the ocean

    when it gushed forth like a baby from the womb?

That was me! I wrapped it in soft clouds,

    and tucked it in safely at night.

Then I made a playpen for it,

    a strong playpen so it couldn’t run loose,

And said, ‘Stay here, this is your place.

    Your wild tantrums are confined to this place.’

 “And have you ever ordered Morning, ‘Get up!’

    told Dawn, ‘Get to work!’

So you could seize Earth like a blanket

    and shake out the wicked like cockroaches?

As the sun brings everything to light,

    brings out all the colors and shapes,

The cover of darkness is snatched from the wicked—

    they’re caught in the very act!

 “Have you ever gotten to the true bottom of things,

    explored the labyrinthine caves of the deep ocean?

Do you know the first thing about death?

    Do you have one clue regarding death’s dark mysteries?

And do you have any idea how large this earth is?

    Speak up if you have even the beginning of an answer.

 “Do you know where Light comes from

    and where Darkness lives

So you can take them by the hand

    and lead them home when they get lost?

Why, of course, you know that.

    You’ve known them all your life,

    grown up in the same neighborhood with them!

 “Have you ever traveled to where snow is made,

    seen the vault where hail is stockpiled,

The arsenals of hail and snow that I keep in readiness

    for times of trouble and battle and war?

Can you find your way to where lightning is launched,

    or to the place from which the wind blows?

Who do you suppose carves canyons

    for the downpours of rain, and charts

    the route of thunderstorms

That bring water to unvisited fields,

    deserts no one ever lays eyes on,

Drenching the useless wastelands

    so they’re carpeted with wildflowers and grass?

And who do you think is the father of rain and dew,

    the mother of ice and frost?

You don’t for a minute imagine

    these marvels of weather just happen, do you?

 “Can you catch the eye of the beautiful Pleiades sisters,

    or distract Orion from his hunt?

Can you get Venus to look your way,

    or get the Great Bear and her cubs to come out and play?

Do you know the first thing about the sky’s constellations

    and how they affect things on Earth?

 “Can you get the attention of the clouds,

    and commission a shower of rain?

Can you take charge of the lightning bolts

    and have them report to you for orders?

What Do You Have to Say for Yourself?

 “Who do you think gave weather-wisdom to the ibis,

    and storm-savvy to the rooster?

Does anyone know enough to number all the clouds

    or tip over the rain barrels of heaven

When the earth is cracked and dry,

    the ground baked hard as a brick?

 “Can you teach the lioness to stalk her prey

    and satisfy the appetite of her cubs

As they crouch in their den,

    waiting hungrily in their cave?

And who sets out food for the ravens

    when their young cry to God,

    fluttering about because they have no food?”

Before and after afflictions So the LORD blessed Job in the second half of his life EVEN MORE than in the beginning. Job now had 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 teams of oxen, and 1,000 female donkeys.

So God gave Job double of what he lost.

However, he only gave Job back 7 sons and 3 daughters, which the SAME amount he lost. 

I always wondered why? Until

I realized that Jobs other children were still ALIVE in heaven. 

After this, Job lived 140 years and saw his sons and his grandsons, four generations. 

Then he died, an old man who had lived a long, full life.

We will all suffer in this life.  It is appointed to mankind to suffer. It is a fallen world.  We may not know the “why” today but some day we probably will.  Instead of asking “why”, we should ask “what”.

What is God up to?

What is God trying to do in me?

The “why” will have to wait for someday in eternity.

My prayer for my Florida friends today is that you will be safe and run into the arms of the one who is waiting, the great comforter.  In the midst of violent hurricanes or calm, normal days He is there and He is Lord and in control. 

*If you are interested in more of Job, what else happened to him, what his friends tried to convince him was wrong and other things he said, this is a good place to start.*

Three clicks for ChadTough

I have a HUGE favor to ask you all today. It won’t cost you a dime and only 3 clicks of your time for the next 2 weeks. 

September of 2014 a little boy from Saline, Michigan captured my heart, he reminded me so much of my Jamie with his blonde hair and sparkling eyes. His name was Chad Carr. 

Chad had been diagnosed with cancer that eventually took his life called DIPG or Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma. 

There is NO CURE  for this pediatric brain cancer. 

Did you know that ONLY 4% of all cancer research goes to children’s cancer research at our National Institute of Health? Think on that next time you see the TV commercials with kids in them.

ChadTough

The mission of The ChadTough Foundation is to fund research and raise awareness for Pediatric Brain Tumors with an emphasis on Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG)

Why is everyone shocked at the harvesting of babies organs?

Disgusted yes? Horrified yes? But, shocked? No, I am not.

In January 1999, Life Site News posted a article by Celeste McGovern called, Secrets of the Dead-Baby Industry

Price list for babies livers

Aborted fetuses are being dissected alive, harvested and SOLD in pieces to fuel a vast research enterprise.

Take a peak at the for profit business Stem Express and you can see the order form for a liver and other organs. In their own words,

“StemExpress is a multi-million dollar company that supplies human blood, tissue products, primary cells and other clinical specimens to biomedical researchers around the world to fuel regenerative medicine and translational research. Founded in 2010, we offer the largest variety of raw material in the industry, as well as fresh, fixed and cryopreserved human primary cells.”

Same argument for organs harvested from people pronounced, “Brain Dead”

Order form for baby partsWell if they are already dead, then why bury the parts in the grave, let them be used to help someone else.

How altruistic it sounds but in BOTH cases the life of someone is taken in order to donate their organs and tissues.

Whenever you read a story about a person “donating” an unpaired major organ, the “donor” has to be killed. Major organs like the heart and liver are not vital or can NOT be used when “harvested” from a cadaver.

The person has to be alive with a living, beating heart circulating blood throughout the body in order to keep the other major organs alive.

There are no hearts, livers, pancreases, kidneys that are harvested from truly dead individuals. That person must be “kept alive” until his organs are harvested.

The last organ taken is the heart because that is what kills the “donor.”

You can’t live without a heart.

Pro-life

Personally I have been active in the pro-life movement for 40 years. I have picked Planned Parenthood, stood with Operation Rescue, counseled  woman in a Pregnancy Counseling Center, and helped facilitate an adoption.

Someone told me recently my name was still on a tree outside Ann Arbor Planned Parenthood in Ann Arbor, Missy Caulk do NOT trespass.

However, before I was active in the pro-life movement  I had an abortion. It was around the time abortion in America became legal. It was before I KNEW it was a baby and NOT a blob of tissue. I sinned. But, God forgave me when I understood and could repent of what I had done. I know I will meet my child in heaven one day.

Selling organs from a baby to a adult severely injured person is big business

Someone asked me once what I hoped to get out of this blog and my response was to help save lives from birth to natural death.  To help educate the masses who don’t understand that “brain death” is a legal fiction, made up to justify killing of people who are severely injured but not DEAD.

For you created my inmost being;

    you knit me together in my mother’s womb. Psalms 139:13

 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;

    your works are wonderful,

    I know that full well. Psalm 139:14

My frame was not hidden from you

    when I was made in the secret place  Psalm 139:15

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

    when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Psalm 139:16

There is no sin too big that can not be forgiven. If you have had an abortion God can and will forgive you IF you ask. I think most people know this and the harder thing to do is to forgive yourself. God does not want you to go through life punishing yourself for your abortion or for any other wrong you have done. The blood shed on the cross is powerful to heal. Jesus paid the price for our sin, so we don’t have to.

These are not blobs of tissue, they are babies who have a heartbeat and a brain. The brain and spinal cord begins to form at 5 weeks or 3 weeks AFTER conception. (Mayo Clinic)

If you watch the video produced by The Center of Medical Progress the brain of the baby is highly desirable. The doctors performing try to turn the baby’s head so they don’t crush it. I found this interesting since doctor’s are so quick to pronounce someone “brain-dead.”

The law on selling any organs

May God use the national exposure to change hearts and laws across the nation.

 

Independence Day

John Adams quote Last night my children and I started watching the HBO Special on John Adams. It was my second time to see it and I believe it is always good to refresh our minds on the price paid and the principles that led to the founding of our nation. 

The price is still being paid today as we continue to send our young men and women to fight for our freedom and liberty both home and abroad.

Today most of politician’s and most of American’s refer to America as a democracy; yet it was the one issue that our Founding Fathers were adamant about is that the United States was a Republic and NOT a Democracy.

There is NOWHERE  in our Constitution or Bill of Rights that uses the word Democracy. Oh, you learned it in your school books, we all did. Today when we hear politicians and TV anchorman speak they NEVER use the word Republic only a Democracy. 

I have always wanted to ask people in power and those in authority to explain the difference and watch many of them stutter. 

Why is it important to know the difference?

The following quote attributed to Professor Alexander Fraser Tyler who was writing back when America was still a colony:

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of Government. It can only exist until the voters discover they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits from the public treasury with a result that a democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy, always to be followed by a Dictatorship. 

Article 4 Section 4 of our Constitution guarantees to every state in the Union a Republican form of government.

Heroes of History by Janet and Geoff BengeThirty-eight years after the Declaration of Independence was written, John Adams warned,

 “A democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never was a democracy that didn’t commit suicide.”

Can you name one that democracy that has lasted?

Are we headed that way?

The progression of a democracy, where do you think America is?

From Bondage to Spiritual Faith

From Spiritual Faith to Great Courage

From Great Courage to Liberty

From Liberty to Abundance

From Abundance to Complacency

                                          From Complacency to Apathy

                                                  From Apathy to Dependency

                                                          From Dependency back to Bondage 

The Declaration of Independence contains the principles of a Republican form of government. All men are created equal with certain unalienable rights that governments are formed by men to secure these rights and that governments derive their power from the consent of the governed.

The essence a Republic is the rule of law. This law is common law and scientific law. It does not change.

Our founders knew history, and they understood this cycle. They knew the natural course for governments was to grow bigger and more powerful. They also knew the more powerful the government, the weaker its people. They wrote a constitution that prevented the unbridled growth of the national government.

As James Madison wrote in Federalist Paper #45, “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined and will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation and foreign commerce.

The Pledge of Allegiance starts out, “I pledge allegiance to the Flag, and to the Republic for which it stands,  one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

In the strictest sense of the word, the system of government established by the Constitution was never intended to be a “democracy.”

This is evident not only in the wording of the Pledge of Allegiance but in the Constitution itself which declares that “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government” (Article IV, Section 4).

Watching John Adams last night allowed me to see once again how many times the colonist tried to address the issue’s that King George was imposing on them by limiting their freedom. (I had to wonder what would have happened IF he had been more understanding of the colonists desire to be heard and responded with inclusion.)

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Unalienable Rights

Unalienable rights are given by God, it is a uniquely American philosophy. It teaches that Man, the individual is endowed at birth with rights that are unalienable because they are given by God.

The Right to Life

The Right for Liberty

The Right to the pursuit of happiness

To list ALL the rights of the individual that flow from those three would add up to all of man’s freedom. Suffice it to say, we have seen many of those assumed rights like parental rights taken away daily.

Parental Rights

To see children being taken from loving families because the government doesn’t like your views on raising your kids, educating them the way you see fit, choosing to vaccinate or not, disagreeing and asking for a second medical opinion and having your kids medically kidnapped IS a violation of our UNALIENABLE rights.

Justina protest

We must get back to what Thomas Jefferson said, as he admonished Supreme Court Justice William Johnson:

“On every question of construction, carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” Thomas Jefferson, Memoir, Correspondence, and Miscellanies, From the papers of Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Jefferson Randolph, editor (Boston: Gray and Bowen, 1830), Vol IV, p. 373, to Judge William Johnson on June 12 1823.

Think how much better that would be.

The Declaration and The Colonists grievances

I have copied our Declaration and the grievances the colonist did their best to address with King George for your review.

The Declaration of Independence

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,—That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.

To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only. 
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Two things, teach your kids…they aren’t learning this is public schools.

Second, how do you feel our freedoms and liberties are being violated today, leave in the comments.

His Story and His Truth is marching on.

Praying for Kidnapped Children

How much do you pray? Or a better way to ask this is who and how and what do you pray for or about?  I don’t really expect an answer but lately my heart has been drawn to pray for medically kidnapped children.

In fact, most of my prayers of late bring me to tears whether I cry driving down the road to Ann Arbor real estate appointments or before I go to sleep. I weep for all the pain that people are going through. Sometimes I don’t really know HOW to pray because I don’t know all the details of everything people have asked for in their prayer requests.

The scripture that comes to mind, “In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes FOR us with groanings to deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” Romans 8:26-27

A few years ago I started to see a multitude of prayer requests on Facebook, (my favorite social network). I caught myself saying I was praying or would pray and I was NOT. That still small voice spoke to me, “you hypocrite”.

So I stopped saying, “praying for you”, UNLESS I was.

 

Justina PelletierMedical Kidnapping

Fourteen months ago I found a story about Justina Pelletier on Facebook and joined that group and twitter feeds, made calls to the Gov of Mass and DCF, prayed, and cried a lot.  I couldn’t fathom the travesty of justice this precious child went through. Boy were my eyes opened. Justina’s case became a springboard for me to see what was really going on out there with our Foster Care and Child Protection Services.

Now not a day go by that I don’t hear of  children being taken from their parents for medical reasons. Not only children being medically kidnaped but taken for frivolous reason from loving homes. I started to ask, how can this be happening?

Some of situations that I have been praying for the last year that are breaking my heart are:

isaiah Ryder and mom MIchelle

 

Isiah Rider Is a 17-year-old Missouri resident who was taken away from his mother at the age of 16 by Illinois child protective services – DCFS – while in Lurie Children’s Hospital for medical treatment. All his mom wanted was a second opinion and they were referred to a different hospital in ILL because the hospital in Missouri couldn’t find a cure for his pain.

 

 

The Ringo family from Bellingham, WA who have a more holistic in their approach to life and health, preferring natural alternatives, like herbs and diet changes, to medicinal treatments.

stanley family The Stanley Family in Arkansas had and continue to have their seven homeschooled children in foster care because they too lived a holistic lifestyle and the dad supposedly used a substance not approved by the FDA. The children never took it and they had no idea there was a controversary on MMS. Now what is really weird to me, as one of my friends here in Michigan has Lyme disease, and the same day I found the Stanley’s story, my friend called and asked me if I had ever heard of MMS.

I said no I had not.  She told me her MD, (notice I said MD had prescribed it for her. I had just texted her back after doing some quick research on it and told her it seemed fine to me if taken as prescribed.

Since then I have another friend in another state who informed me her MD had prescribed it to her. So NOW the Stanley’s have lost custody of their kids over a substance that is being prescribed by MD’s? The Stanley’s said they would get rid of it as the dad had only tried it and they used it for their garden.

I don’t get it.

burns family

Recently a couple who live in Brighton,MI (right down the road from me)  is going through a tragic situation where the father was convicted of abusing his 11-week old daughter. Joshua and Brenda Burns, who waited 7 years to have their baby, she being a nurse at my local hospital and him a pilot with Delta because the baby Naomi slipped off her daddy’s lap and he caught her with his hand. That is called negligence for protecting their baby…catching her before she hit her head on the coffee table.

Josh is to be sentenced this week, their pastor set up a web-site for them, the prosecution could find no one to testify against Josh’s character in all of Brighton, MI? Yet now DCF is harassing the mother, who was cleared.

I sure an glad my children are grown, Jamie was so accident prone we nicknamed him Rambo Jamo Pup. How can this be happening?

Verosa family

 

Another tragic case, that I have been praying for and reached out to NotDeadYet is the is the Verzosa Family of Kissimmee, Florida. So what was the Verosa families crimes?

The mother has a slight intellectual disability. (Whatever that is…) So now their 6 children are in foster care and the parents are devastated. If the mom needs support, get her some help. DON’T take her children away. Yes, this situation has brought me to tears many nights now.

 

I could literally go into many cases in the State of Arizona, which appears to be making money off these kids being taken from their families, you would not believe it. But I will mention only one family in AZ that I have been praying for and that is Kayla and Hannah Diegel. 

Dingle sisters

My plan in the next few weeks is to post more on my thoughts of WHY this is happening. What is systemically wrong with DCF’s?  WHY they are taking more children from loving families who are just trying to get help for their children who have medical issues.

There are families having kids taken away for FRIVOLOUS reasons. (home-schooling, not vaccinating, seeking a second medical opinion, diaper rash, home-births, not giving psychotropic drugs, two doctors disagreeing on a diagnosis for their children and on and on.

Please, subscribe by email on the right column if you want to follow along and find out how this can be happening in our nation. Mainly join me in praying for these families IF you are moved as have been. 

A few nights ago I was standing in the kitchen and started telling Christa and Allyssa about the family in Brighton and I just completely broke down. They don’t understand HOW I can be so broken up over this family with everything we as a family have gone through.

Hey, I don’t either!

***Full disclosure, I am not against DCF, CPS or Social Workers (my degree is in social work) and I know they are overworked and understaffed.  I know there are very dedicated one’s who truly want to help protect abused children. (physically, sexually, emotionally) My advocacy is that systemic changes must be changed and changed quickly***

New update, read how Judge Whelan in San Diego County ruled against CPS for taking children and violating many laws. I am still reading his entire ruling but good case law present here. This is getting too long, I will post more later.
