Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world (1 Peter 5:8-9).
Sometimes Christians become complacent and start thinking that because they will not watch such movies, as “The God Who Wasn’t There,” that nobody else will either, or they think their own families will not be affected by such an attack. Believe me; we have witnessed quite a few “strong” Christian families falling apart because they thought they were impervious to such attacks. We need to have answers for those who attack our faith (1 Pet. 3:15). This is partly why I write some of the ladies’ lesson series—so that we can build faith in the word of God.

When I was very young, I wanted to give my mother something special, so I pulled flowers from the neighbors’ garden and took them to her. You know what they looked like–stems damaged by little hands and dirt still clinging to the roots. The blossoms were barely salvageable. That day a certain realization came to me. After the neighbor came and told my mother where those gifts had originated and my mother spanked me for trespassing and stealing, I had a different view of the beauty of pulled and cut flowers.
Now they remind me of the many science experiments and projects we used to have to do in high school. We were to catch a certain number of butterflies or so many moths and their caterpillar counterparts, put pins in their heads and bring the collection to school for a grade.
How are cut flowers and mounted butterflies alike? They are dead–no longer able to be viewed by everyone who passes by and no longer doing the job our Creator gave them to do. Flowers and other growing things provide food for the bees and butterflies, while the butterflies and bees help to pollinate the flowers.
As the song from the Sound of Music says, “Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start.” Anything learned is best learned from the beginning. And it is often best retained when the training also begins early in life.
Just like learning our ABCs, training our moral compass needs to start young. You can learn it at any point in life – but habits make it harder. So when it comes to teaching your children about modesty and decency, when do you begin? I suggest from the moment that little life enters your awareness is when you start.

When it became financially advantageous to have babies out of wedlock, the nuclear family was doomed. In the last hundred years, the American family has been attacked, debased, maligned, slandered, and vilified by every facet of society. No family is safe from the official busybodies. At issue is a rebellion against any sort of moral code.
Who Killed the American Family reveals the concerted assault on the American nuclear family by many forces – feminists, judges, lawmakers, psychologists, school districts, college professors, politicians offering incentives and seeking votes, and more – opposed to the traditional American nuclear family, each with its own raison d’etre for wanting to abolish it. The wreckage of the American family leaves us with the inability to have limited government because government steps in to perform tasks formerly done by the nuclear family.
