While we desire to live a quiet and simple life, sometimes we must be willing to face reality, stand up, and be counted. A quiet and simple life isn’t something we should take for granted. There are forces at work right now that would undermine our liberty and freedom to live as we choose.
As a Christian, I have a responsibility to speak truthfully about matters around me. As a Conservative, I have a responsibility to speak up for the importance of the Constitution. For too long Christians have been willing to stay away from the fray. They didn’t want to get their hands dirty. They didn’t want to offend people.
Well, look where we are now as a culture. Christians abdicating large portions of the culture has not worked out well, has it?
I decided to put together a video to discuss some of the big issues I see right now including:
- the failure of some in high-profile Christian leadership
- the plot to falsely ease the conscience of Christians
- the attack on and manipulation of the emotions of women
- what it has been like to live in Michigan this year
- how we should think about voting in the upcoming election
I feel a sense of responsibility to speak up and share what I have observed. I also feel compelled by the love of Christ to speak the truth in a time when people are afraid to speak up. I want to encourage you to speak up. If you are a Christian or a Conservative, you need to make your voice heard. We should never give an inch to forces that are working against our faith and the Constitution.
If you appreciate this video, please share this post. Thank you.

Thank you !! , from a fellow Christian and Michigander…We have had a difficult time finding a church , what is being taught is a social ” niceness” gospel , with most people ( and Pastors) rejecting the Bible completely or partially , and , a rejection of the Constitution . I think most people have never read either document ,or, they have spent years investigating every conspiracy about them, and think themselves educated…It appears to me that the lifetime politicians are scrambling to save their jobs , and shut Christians up …the BIG picture is ,of course , shut up Christians permanently. Our Constitution gave us the ability to speak up for over 245 years , but I seriously think this window is closing fast …We are truly living in times where good is evil , and evil is good . I guess I shouldn’t be surprised , but I am every day….
Good to see you! Thank you for your thoughtful comments. It is a difficult time, but I am actually hopeful. I think we are seeing the good and evil on full display. This is causing people to reveal what is truly in their hearts and minds so we can see it.
I’ve been thinking a lot about how our view of the end times or the return of Christ shapes how we view current events. I’ve been challenged that there is no reason a Christian should ever have a defeatist attitude of the situation in which we find ourselves. That’s another discussion for another day, but wanted to mention that.
I started praying quite a while ago that those who do evil would be exposed and that those who seek to do evil would be thwarted. It would appear that there are many of us praying that same thing because it’s happening on an almost daily basis. If the press was not so corrupt, everyone would know it.
I am always so thankful for your willingness to share wisdom like this. It’s as if you can hear the discussions my husband and I have all the time. I wish we lived closer, I would give anything to have a coffee date with you.
I’m floored and flabbergasted by the Christians in my life who are cheering for the dems. Women who I know are against abortion at all phases are on Facebook railing against their friends and family who support Trump (silently or otherwise). I see Christian women berating others for supporting a “bully”. I think the bully accusation speaks to the movement to feminize men. When your pastor is a soft spoken hipster, I’m sure it’s very hard to wrap your head around the idea of men with strong personalities who doesn’t take any crap.
My own father has been completely brainwashed by MSNBC over the last five years and now wholeheartedly supports Biden, even pushing away and insulting his few remaining family members who support Trump. TDS is very real, I see it in my dad. He has a hatred for Trump the likes of which I’ve never seen my dad express for anyone. My parents were very pro-life and instilled that in me. To see my dad hate one man so much that he’s willing to cast a vote for his grandchildren to live under socialism has created some serious tension for us. I’m sure there are lots of people out there who don’t recognize their loved ones anymore, all because of the media and their relentless, shameful tactics. We’ve tried repeatedly to share alternative, unbiased news sources with him, but he rejects them. The damage is done.
Your comment came through while I was replying to Karen. I have to run, but will be back to fully reply in a bit. What you said is so true in every way.
I finally made it back. LOL! I would love to sit down and have coffee with you, too! I have been trying to figure out a way to connect with people in real time online. I have many ideas for this site, but am struggling to find the time and energy to implement them.
I am seriously thinking about doing some kind of short (5-10 minute) video a few times a week of news stories to watch or something. I know most women don’t have the time to dig in the way I do. Well, I don’t have the time either, but I do it anyway because I feel compelled to do so. If you remember when I wrote about the Kavanaugh hearing, I lost a lot of subscribers and readers. I think I’m to the point now that I’m simply comfortable focusing on the Conservative and/or Christian readers who want to be here and letting everyone else decide for themselves. I feel a real need to offer an encouraging place for women to escape the madness and be able to discuss things with other sane women.
The Trump Derangement Syndrome among formerly “normal” people is really disturbing and concerning. I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s almost like some kind of delusion. How do sane, normal people (especially Christians) end up completely unglued about President Trump? Part of what makes it so concerning is that they really don’t see how brainwashed they are. I can sit here and go through things about President Trump both positive and negative. I can do the same thing with Biden. People with TDS are fairly easy to spot because they can say virtually nothing positive about President Trump and/or they mindlessly repeat the same thoroughly debunked lies about him. Think how that kind of rage could be weaponized against people in this country. It’s truly frightening.
The good thing is that many people are waking up to it. I see people online all the time who have had the veil lifted. Many of them say the same thing. It’s like a cloud is lifted and they can think clearly for the first time. It’s really quite interesting to see people use the same terminology over and over. Rage completely clouds your thinking. If someone can get past that, they can begin to see things as they truly are. I will specifically pray for your Dad and that the fog will be lifted.
And the man thing, too. I started two new forums about Manhood and Womanhood last week where I could start sharing information. This is a topic that really needs discussing. I’ll leave it at that for now.
The videos are a great idea. You’re so right, having an escape from the madness is a good way to describe it. I feel like we’re children caught in the middle of a divorce and we’ve all been forced to take sides. This isn’t the way it’s supposed to be.
This occurred to me after posting. In addition to Christian women supporting progressive causes, I’m also surprised to see so many Christian homeschool moms support them. Some of these moms who claim to love history and creating timelines with their kids seem to have no qualms about socialism and communism being part of their future. History isn’t even an interest of mine but I know that we should run as fast as we can away from these principals. How naive to believe the government they are championing would protect homeschool rights, when the ultimate goal is to strip away individuality.
You are absolutely right that the cognitive dissonance is astounding.
Homeschoolers supporting socialist/communist candidates (which is what Biden-Harris are) is mind-boggling. Kamala Harris would shut down homeschooling as quickly as humanly possible. She would shut down charter schools. There would be no school choice.
She would shut down everything that Conservatives value. She is further to the Left in her voting record than Bernie Sanders. That’s absolutely horrible. And yet there are Christians thinking they should vote her in as President. And make no mistake. She will be the President. Biden is the Trojan Horse to get them elected.
Kamala Harris was so unpopular in the Democrat Primaries, she dropped out before the first votes were cast. She got ZERO support from her own party members. But in one month she could President-elect for all intents and purposes.
I truly do not know what has happened to people. Unless they are putting up a front to remain Respectable, but will vote differently. Let’s hope so.
And pray like crazy.
I’m trying to force myself to watch this Vice President debate tonight. I hate debates. Really. I cannot stand them and rarely ever watch any of them. I keep turning this one on and off because I just don’t like them.
But I’ve watched enough to know that the thought that Kamala Harris could be called upon to deal with China, the Middle East, Russia, the economy, the Second Amendment, the First Amendment, and everything else is truly frightening.
Thank you so much for taking this stand! I want you to know that I couldn’t agree more, and I stand with you on this, Sallie. Thank you for not bowing to the culture. What has been a common thread that has stood out for me in it all of this is the desire of the culture and the democrats to keep people huddled in fear. I have had numerous conversations with Christians where I have stated that I refuse to give in to fear. You are absolutely correct that we need to stand strong and defend the whole word of God, and not pick and choose what we believe from it. I just want you to know that I continue to pray for you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thank you for your encouraging comment. I’m glad this video encouraged you. We all need to push each other on and not give in to fear. I’ve become more and more convinced of that in recent weeks. That isn’t to say we all won’t be tempted to fear, but we have to not give in.
I appreciate your prayers and welcome them!
Okay, first short video with news highlights is up.
One thing that really bothers me now is how the left holds up science as an idol that should never be questioned. The reality is that scientific conclusions need to be put through the closest scrutiny and the most rigorous testing that can be contrived, and even then they may be replaced later on, by something that is even closer to objective Truth.
Also, you’re correct that the left has no intentions of giving up and leaving people alone.
Here in the Twin Cities, there are multiple organizations now that are dedicated to providing money, training, and support to Democrat women running for office. Ilhan Omar came out of one of these groups.
I encourage everyone to go and seek out information for themselves. For example, I dug into my state’s teachers’ union website and found their page of policy initiatives: https://educationminnesota.org/advocacy/Educator-Policy-Innovation-Center/EPIC-reports
Other truths are there just for the noticing. My city is no longer hiring police officers who only speak English, even though at least 90% of the city’s population are still native English speakers.
