‘You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.’ C.S. Lewis.

We are all born with an innate sense of the spiritual world…spiritual beings living a human experience through our earthly bodies. The spirit life is forever, the one on earth, a blip on the screen of eternity.

People say,

"It’s the journey, not the destination."

The Israelites did not think so when they wandered through the desert for forty years in search of the promised land.

Understanding why people say what they do is the first step toward compassion, as it allows us to glimpse another perspective. This can lead to giving others grace an undeserved gift of letting people off the hook for what they say that eventually leads us to forgive them.

Day of Mourning, Day of Shame
Saturday, January 22, 2022


Today is the forty-ninth anniversary of Roe versus Wade, making abortion legal by the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in 1973. Many of us who were buoyed yesterday by the March for Life in Washington, DC and by similar marches around the country in defense of the lives of the pre-born are today filled with mourning today for the approximate sixty to seventy million American lives snuffed out by abortion.

With the grief is a deep shame we bear in our hearts as pro-life citizens of a nation whose highest court in the land sanctioned the murder of human beings, smoothed over by politicians and the medical establishment with the words that it would only happen in the tiniest numbers of pregnancies, tragically out of medical necessity. If only the seven men who made this decision, and the women who thereby lawfully terminated pregnancies, could peer into the future to see that was a lie that would turn the rare and tragic into an international movement obsessed with murdering babies. A revolution that would boldly refute science and the truth of human biology.

The ultrasound was in the future, and when it had begun to be used to peer into the womb of a mother, it exposed the lie that objectified babies as clumps of inhuman cells. It continued to reveal the truth that a pre-born baby at just ten weeks of gestation would instinctively move away from an abortion instrument. Proof that a pre-born child has a heartbeat at two to three weeks of development. Brain development at six weeks. If we declare a stopped heart or a brain that is dead the tragic and mournful end of a life, how can such large numbers of otherwise good people in America that support abortion steel their hearts against celebrating all beating hearts and functioning brains six weeks after conception? Even in certain states that consider themselves advocates for the pre-born, their laws hypocritically and with willful scientific illiteracy restrict abortion at ten weeks, or fifteen, or in some cases, twenty-four weeks. No educated or moral mind can arbitrarily decide an acceptable period of time to terminate the life of a fellow human being.

Cracking the code of human DNA was in the future in 1973. If only seven men sitting on the Supreme Court, and women who believed their bodies contained clumps of cells could imagine the wonder of DNA. After Watson and Crick discovered DNA achieving a scientific milestone that would expand and grow exponentially long after they died, geneticists, doctors and the scientific community were enlightened bit by bit with observable data that a complete set of DNA exists in every child in the womb at the moment of conception. For some time now, the scientific community has known that at the moment of conception there is a spark of light.

In the book of Genesis, Chapter One, the earth was void, dark and without form. God commands the light to exist and it does. In Psalm 139: 15-16, the psalmist declares that God created his own life also in a dark place without form, ‘My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.’

With a burst of light, now powerfully documented through science and technology in the twenty-first century, God pours forth His power, His personality, His artistic expression as the Master Designer and Artist, in the creation of every human being. It is His DNA created in the light, for He fashions us in His own image, not after birth, but when egg and sperm meet and every strand of DNA in a unique individual is present.

In Psalm 139:13, the psalmist says, ‘For You formed my inward parts.’ Those inmost parts within all human beings’ DNA are our proclivities, curiosities, gifts, talents and purposes given by God and for God and even weaknesses and obstacles to overcome through Him, already spoken into existence by God at the moment of conception. The parallels of God calling forth light over the earth, to calling forth light at the conception of man speaks of such an awesome Creator who values us immensely. He destined us for greatness but greatness cannot be achieved in the darkness of a manipulated educational system, algorithmically controlled information, squelched curiosity, suppressed expression, psychologically manipulated fears, mass media distractions, cancelled weaknesses and the eradication of brilliant, Godly historical figures who were freely exercising ten parts of their brains to our flabby few.  

While God is light, His creation is light, and spiritual illumination is a light He places in our hearts, men and women who believe the lies about abortion are in darkness in knowledge and spirit. How can so many in a nation be uneducated about science and apathetic to the horrific reality that such a decision by the highest court in the land was taken advantage of by scientific elites unleashing all moral and ethical restraints to what we do to lives in the womb? Aren’t most people including the Supreme Court aware that the barbaric slaughter of babies is a multi-billion dollar industry which in turn profits from their body parts as commodities used for gruesome scientific and technological experimentation that Hitler could never have imagined? Have we become so spiritually dead and depraved that we turn a blind eye to the passing of infanticide leglislation to remove organs from living babies? So callous and desensitized that we do and say nothing about pieces of rats sewn onto cruelly aborted babies’ heads? What if those seven men and the women who thought they carried inhuman clumps of cells in their bodies could only see the perverse future in store from making abortion the law of the land?

What if those seven men in robes on our Supreme Court had any knowledge of the writings of Fabian Socialists like Bertrand Russell, Aldous Huxley, H.G. Wells who were not hiding their goals for a one world government achieved through things like universal birth control, depopulation, eugenics, selective breeding, advances in physiology, psychology, educational models and technology to control minds. Apparently, the majority of those men were grossly ignorant that opening a pandora’s box of abortion would allow propagandizing intellectuals at the top – the ones attending the World Economic Forum – who believe in one world government, a New World Order –to applaud the psychological manipulation and dumbing down of society that demands baby slaughter while it increasingly disparages traditional family, the glue that holds societies together. One can even make the case that we’re witnessing a sort of mass hypnosis of the college educated who are more indoctrinated than educated, because of atheistic, one world government socialists.

John Dewey (1859-1952) was the father of modern public education and one of the original signers of the “Humanist Manifesto.” He believed the public school should promote a Marxist socialist worldview and eradicate Christianity. “Children who know how to think for themselves spoil the harmony of the collective society which is coming.” My God, open your eyes, Supreme Court. Dewey and his fellow proponents of humanism and a New World Order have achieved the goal and the masses never saw it coming or how abortion would be a vehicle to get here. To watch college students protest for abortion, actually swallowing do it yourself at-home abortion pills while shouting ‘We love abortion’ does not spring from educated minds at all, but ones the elites have succeeded in programming.

The pro-abortion battle is fierce, with Biden’s Press Secretary purposefully spouting the big lies of abortion as Women’s Healthcare (it always kills a patient) and Reproductive Rights (A woman exercises her reproductive right by getting pregnant) and Biden’s commitment to upholding them, while Godly men and women who believe in the Sanctity of Life spoke, prayed and marched right outside of the doors to the WH. The pro-abortion battle is fierce in malevolent efforts to depopulate the globe and to use medico-technology to play little gods with babies’ bodies. To America’s great shame, it has pushed its baby killing onto the globe. We are not only going to pay for more and more of it on this planet according to the spokesmouth for the Scientific Elites and Technocrats really running nations, Biden, but we also force poor nations that oppose abortion to perform them with the threat of withholding much needed aid!

 The big lie of abortion is ‘I.’ ‘My body, my choice.’ It is a barbaric practice committed out of self-love. It is love of me, my sexual pleasures, me living out my truth, me not hurting anybody. It is wedded to the big lie of the existential threat of climate change, which is ‘we.’ Articles like, “Is it Even Moral to Have Kids with Climate Change?” are promulgated to propagandize that there is a sort of virtuosity in abortion. It is purely delusional thinking a generation now accepts that the selfishness of destroying life in the womb is a beneficent gift to the globe and the people who inhabit it. A growing number of young people now refuse to procreate in order to ‘save the planet’ from an increased carbon footprint. Completely insane Eco-radicals claim the planet must be rid of all human inhabitants to survive. Some suggest we beam earthlings to Mars to be good to planet earth.

The Supreme Court was established to uphold our Founding Documents. The most basic of these is our Declaration of Independence that holds truth as self-evident that all men are created equal by God, and it is He, with Supremacy over our nation and laws Who has given us unalienable rights that government has been forbidden to usurp of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. By denying a right to life for a population of babies just in our own country as numerous as the entire nation of Great Britain, the other two untouchable rights were wrested away from them all. The Supreme Court also has a responsibility to uphold and accurately interpret our Constitution. To strike down Roe would be to admonish and correct all of the politicians and abortion activists falsely claiming that someplace in our Constitution is the right to unilaterally decide to kill another human being. That is the precise definition of murder, to be found nowhere in the Constitution of the United States.

I urge our nine justices on the Supreme Court to read the writings of the aforementioned humanists, atheists and one world government advocates. I implore them to read them not as science fiction or fascinating secular prophecy, but as plans already in the making seventy-five years ago that have come to fruition.  

Along with tens of millions of my fellow pro-life advocates, I would like to see Roe undone at the federal level and returned to the states. Of course, the Democrat states will protect the barbarism of slaughtering human beings and selling their pieces for profit by continuing to delude the masses that evil is good and good is evil. I do hope everyone who supports abortion will elect to live in Democrat states so that they can put their money where their mouths are and pay for murder with their taxes. I will empathize with people who have no choice but to live in these states and be financially complicit in abortion. I will pity women harmed by an acceleration of the production and distribution of dangerous mail order abortion pills. I will pray for the corporations and filmmakers who are but pawns of much more powerful, nefarious entities that blindly boycott states that ban abortion. I will weep at the increased division with even greater demonization of pro-life states. I will mourn for those who do not see any correlation between the bad things happening to America over the near half century we have been killing God’s heritage and the worse things to come if we do not stop. And I will continue to open my mouth for the speechless, in the cause of all who are appointed to die, as Proverbs 31:8 says to do for those who remain choiceless and without rights, taken to an appointment at the Temple of Child Sacrifice, Planned Parenthood.

God's Presence With Wings

God’s Presence With Wings

“I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me. I have set the Lord always before me…You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence with eternal pleasures at Your right Hand.” Ps 16:7,8,11

When God knocked on the door of my heart in 1994 and I let Him in, I thought if I asked, He would provide definitive directives in various areas of my life.

Not only would I do what was right in His sight, He would eliminate situational uncertainty and despair.

Thankfully, I grew more mature in my faith than this. I am grateful that God was more interested in changing my worldly heart and mind than circumstances. But as a spiritual infant then, I struggled to understand how my newfound desire to please Him as a woman of service to others was not an easy success.

After all, I gave up my desire to achieve and prosper in the advertising industry. I faithfully held to a new and strong conviction that making people think they could not live without things they did not need was a manipulative and dishonorable profession. I also turned down a maybe sort of fun and creative offer to write fortunes in cookies, rejecting the occultist nature of such things. Instead, I took a job as a counselor at a crisis hotline for youth to make a positive difference. Yet, it took both an emotional and physical toll on me. Barely a teen on the streets called, but many people suffering mental health issues that did not really want referrals to get help, did. Many calls were from pranksters with nothing better to do. Still, I shared with many that God was their true source of help. But I found myself regularly reprimanded by my supervisor for ‘proselytizing,’ a term I was not even familiar with. This came as a surprise to me at a Catholic organization called ‘The Covenant House,’ where I would be summoned into her office for scolding as I stared in confusion at a large, framed Bible verse on the wall behind her.

But even more unsettling than the calls was that a coworker who would hear me talk about God and became hostile. Juan’s dirty looks, intentional bumping into me and angry comments finally became unsettling enough to turn into a plea to my supervisor to intervene. She sent me to an empty conference room with whom she referred to as ‘the harmless Juan’ to work it out. With steely eyes, he told me that every time I mentioned God, he wanted to murder me and graphically laid out how he would do it. All of the stress caused IBS-related pain in the gut that doubled me over in my cubicle.

I lacked the wisdom, insight and maturity to not personalize everything as a commentary on my incompetence to please God and as a painful rejectability factor among people. I did not understand that Satan wanted to wrest my soul back into the pit, but that the attacks from him were a sign that he never would! Instead, I obsessed with wondering did God want me to quit or do better?  Should I accept defeat and struggle with another angst of how to earn a living? Oh, me of little faith!

Adding to my professional woes was a stressful relationship with a man I met at my church’s singles’ group. I believed that just because he was a Christian, it was a foregone conclusion that we were right for each other. My naivete, along with what I believed to be the prophetic words of my Bible instructor that he saw us ‘married in four months,’ kept me working at pleasing a man with huge expectations and not a lot of respect.

God seemed so silent as I endured fear, pain, and the constant sting of rejection. One day as I stood on the platform waiting for a train to take me to my terrible job, I prayed, ‘Lord, show me a tangible sign of hope from You with a butterfly.’ Suddenly one softly fluttered by, lifting my spirits at His visible answer to a simple prayer from a spiritual infant. With continued prayers for a tangible way to feel His presence, and more sightings of butterflies, I began to feel a comforting, special connection to God with these winged creatures.

One afternoon when I was feeling particularly alone and dejected on a lunch break at an outside table at work, a butterfly descended out of windy skies. The delicate, orange, gold and black insect perched on my handbag for at least a minute or two before rising back up overhead and fluttering out of view. I thanked and praised God, and returned to my job renewed for the afternoon.

Weeks later, when on my way to a friend’s party where the boyfriend who broke up with me was also invited, I prayed for God to calm my anxieties. Suddenly there appeared a large, low-sailing butterfly that descended to about knee’s length, at kept pace with me in companionship for the whole two blocks I walked to that party.

Six months later, I lost the job too, and found out my nephew had leukemia. On a family trip to Disney World, I felt like the saddest person in the enchanted kingdom. I prayed for a sign of hope from God but laughed at myself for wanting butterflies in the night while my family and I waited for a parade to pass. But to my astonishment, a Kingdom of life, light and hope made itself real to me as no less than a dozen dancers atop a float swayed and fluttered by, dressed in a dazzling rainbow of colorful wings with a tribute to the beautiful butterfly.

Like a child who looks up at her father and pleads, ‘Dad, tell that story again,’ the butterfly is to this day is to my spirit a tangible and comforting sign of hope from the Lord of His presence and care for me. Along with all the other little children at the Disney parade, I clapped in awe and wonder.

My nephew was healed and shortly after this, I met my husband of twenty-three years now who loves me unconditionally. God gave me the greatest job I could ever hope for with the gift of raising two, beautiful, adopted children.  


The Church Needs to Unify in the Battle For Right to Life
Thursday, June 10, 2021


Founder Benjamin Rush stated, ‘By removing the Bible from schools we would be wasting so much time and money punishing criminals and so little pains to prevent crime. Take the Bible out of schools and there would be an explosion in crime.’

A near eight-hundred percent increase in crime in just over half a century bears out his warning to America. Crime explodes without a true moral compass for how to live, because man cannot change his behavior apart from God. Without God and left to his own devices, man justifies behaviors that are anathema to the Creator.

I am sure that God’s tender embrace of the sixty-five million babies we have callously murdered—and counting by the thousands daily—is not without growing wrath for the injustice towards human beings made in His image.  

‘There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to Him; haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood…’ {Proverbs 6_16-17}

The abortion industry, pro-abortion politicians and Hollywood stand before audiences and cameras, and tell abominable lies that the shedding of innocent blood is a right. Hollywood sweethearts wave worthless metal idols in the shape of man, while gushing with pride, that had it not been for murdering their own offspring they would not have won them. Crowds before them clap in approval and admiration.

Politicians arrogantly assert they will ‘protect’ baby murder, not babies. And the abortion industry is filled with apostates claiming to do ‘the Lord’s work,’ and reprobates who have become immune, jovial and mocking about how they tear to pieces human beings in the womb. That is, when they aren’t mutilating the bodies of babies further along in development for illegal sale. That is, when they aren’t cutting the organs out of babies born alive during an abortion or intentionally delivered alive to brutally remove those parts for sale. That is, while the Democrat party has refused to protect these babies born alive some one-hundred times when the Republicans have attempted to get a vote to stop the madness.

We have allowed a procedure considered tragic and rare not too long ago, {when so many women did not even realize they were carrying human beings with a complete set of DNA at conception, and a heartbeat in just two to three weeks}, to spiral into a complete lack of all moral restraints and infanticide. For abortion truly corrupts a nation that cannot wantonly kill human beings in the womb and not expect murder to spill onto the streets and into the schools. There is no longer a valid debate to negate the science of human life since the ultrasound and advances in medico-technology, but rather a callous disregard for pre-born lives. Abortion advocates know this, so have resorted to haughtily justifying murder without remorse for their selfishness. As Mother Theresa said, ‘Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use violence to get what it wants.’

Where has the church been for fifty years? Many run crisis pregnancy centers and engage in prayer in front of abortion clinics. But the body of Christ has not risen in one mind and one spirit by its millions and demanded an end to the barbarism. The result is that in New York, where abortion began, the state now forces pregnancy crisis centers to incorporate pro-aborts on their staff, and the church has not in unison said no. The state turns a blind eye to the harassment of prayerful, brave souls who stand outside of abortion clinics.

New York arrested two young black women during the covid pandemic for breaking its covid restrictions while defending life in the city where more black babies are killed in the womb than in any other state. Yet, it continues to allow riot after riot of covid-rule breakers for nearly a year. And the body of Christ has not said no. Physical assaults of even the elderly praying outside of abortion clinics has become all too common, yet the church has not been so large in numbers outside abortion clinics that it forms a Godly hedge of protection one for another in the battle for the right to life.

Pro-life organizations are increasingly censored or banned on social media sites. The church has not by the tens of millions said no. Sermons from the pulpit about the unjust abomination to God of shedding innocent blood in the womb are few and far between.  

To be clear, I am not disparaging individual churches or people hard at work defending life in the womb. Rather, I am pointing out that without unity of the entire church crying out against abortion injustice, we continue to lose the battle for life. I see so many attempting to engage in the battle on social media, ineffective to change policy or legislation, and increasingly censored or banned. Prayer is essential, but so too, is a unified, massive physical presence in the public square to defend babies.
