The real evils, indeed, of Emma’s situation were the power of having rather too much her own way, and a disposition to think a little too well of herself.

I so miss those times when my son was still a baby. Enjoy the moments because they fly by. As for the pictures, there was a discussion thread a couple years back that prompted me to post those; it had something to do with keeping your inner child alive. But no, they're not of my son. They're just fun random pictures that my sister had 'forward e-mailed' me. Except for the family; that's my mom and dad, sister, and baby me.

Impressive webpage, I haven't been able to look through much of it yet, but what I have seen I thought was wonderfully done. I am debating about shooting your link over to my girlfriend..

Hi, Alison. I spent some time checking out your site this morning. It's very impressive! I read 'The Perfect Housewife: A Great American Myth'. I went through that type of phase shortly after I quit my job to stay home to care for my baby boy (he's 14 now) and fully devote myself to family. It's a long story, but that phase nearly killed me. lol 

I'm going to have to read more of your articles.

Meeting a girl online: A good introduction message

The introduction message which you send to that cute girl online in which you attempt to cultivate a relationship with her is supposed to be the "attention getter", that determines whether she will message you back and continue the conversation, or just move on hoping to find a better man.I have been using online dating services for over a year now, as a second method in my arsenal NOT as a substitute to meeting a girl offline in the "real world". I have no problems talking to women and asking…See More

Black Hebrew Israelites and GOCC

Just now heard of them. Apparently one of their ministers went head to head against apologist James White. Smells like heresy. What is it and is it heretical?

Answered prayers

We frequently hear stories of how an extremely important need was "saved" after prayer, such asShe was near death but we prayed for her and she lived.Our marriage almost fell apart but we prayed and God saved our marriage.My job was nearing being taken from me but we prayed and God saved my job.But if we think of God as a Father, any parent does not always say, "Yes" when a request is made.  Sometimes a parent says, "No," and sometimes a parent says, "Not now," and sometimes a parent says,…See More
