I see so many comments that lump all Muslims with terrorists. This lady is trying to think of all people as individuals. I was at a major airport a few years ago and happened to spot a man go off in a quiet secluded corner of the waiting area behind a huge pillar, spread out his prayer rug, and pray. I admit it was hard to tell myself “Not all Muslims are terrorists. Not all Muslims are terrorists.” But I did not report him to anyone and no planes blew up that day. After all, the only thing he did was look for some privacy and pray.

I know of a Christian family who raised their children in Israel and all of their children, including the girls, took their turn serving for two years in the Israeli Defense Force. It’s nothing new.

Unlike the young elders and sisters whose mission costs are leveled, missionary couples have to pay the actual rate of what it costs to live in their mission. Hawaii is an expensive place to live so they usually call people to go there who can actually afford it. George and Olive Osmond (parents of the famous Osmonds) served a mission in Hawaii.

Are you willing to spend 1-2 years serving others AT YOUR OWN EXPENSE?
Are you willing to donate 10% and even more of EVERY SINGLE PAYCHECK to your church or other charity of your choice?
When you do, let me know and we’ll talk about who’s a Christian and who’s not.

1) I have some friends who just started serving their mission in Vanuatu.
2) Hawaii has it’s share of problems and people who need the Gospel. Just because YOU think it’s a tropical vacation paradise doesn’t mean that the people living there lead idyllic lives. There are plenty of opportunities for service in Hawaii and everywhere in the United States and everywhere in the world.

I got my driver’s license in the early 1970′s on a 1959 Volkswagen with a manual choke. How I miss a stick shift! You have better control over the car and you get better gas mileage.

Do you have any idea how much I am cringing to look at that picture and see people with their FINGERS all over that album???!!!???

I just saw this on the TV news and they said the woman had recently lost her four year old son. Her 14 yo son was in the car and she was afraid of losing him, too. Never mess with a Mama Bear and her cubs.

So, is God going to have to ask for your permission if He decides to give new revelation?
SuttonShimai .... Nice rebuttal.
Proverbs 30:5, 6: "Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not add to his words, lest he rebuke you and you be found a liar" (ESV).
Revelation 22:18,19: ""For I testify to every man who heareth the words of the prophecy of this book. If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in the book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book" (KJV)
There is another such admonition in Deuteronomy.

In the 60′s, students wouldn’t dream of disrespecting their teacher. Now I spend a great deal of time trying to get the students to stop talking with their neighbor or fiddling with their cell phone long enough for me to teach them anything. In a large class it’s easy for anyone not in the front row to hide behind their books, computer bags, etc. and text away or simply zone out. Class sizes of about 10 would really work great if you want your child to get an EDUCATION. Of course I’m talking about an ideal world. Some people really understand that. When the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah was built about 40 years ago, they deliberately made the classrooms small so they couldn’t hold more than about 10 desks. They knew that smaller classes would keep all the students involved. They only had 8 weeks to teach the missionaries enough language to be functional before sending them overseas and they didn’t have time to waste if someone was zoning out.
My sentiments exactly. I was wondering if I was gonna have to say it. Thanks!
Yeah, someone didn't do much research. As far as I know there isn't an entire attraction and Museum for About Schmidt. Field of Dreams still has a tourist site running. I don't even think About Schmidt is number 2. Number 2 has to be Bridges of Madison County.

Every time I teach a new class of Spanish students the word for black, they all go nuts not matter what their race is. They really *do* need an education!!
good stuff, and exactly my point, Sutton.
the word isn’t taboo or even giggle-worthy to tykes in Spain.
i think Anglo-Brit-Prog-Pop-PC-Culture is going to eventually force it to be that way, though, eventually.
-which is pretty weird.
anyone need an "eventually" ?
i seem to have a spare one ^

It’s not the nuclear blast that is the problem. It’s the Electro-Magnetic Pulse that the blast produces that is the problem. It will not only fry electronics in everything, it will fry the electronics in parts that are sitting in warehouses. There would be nothing to replace them with because even the replacements would be fried. But not replacements sitting in warehouses in Europe or Asia, if they exist, since the scenerio being discussed is an EMP aimed at the United States. By the way, an EMP does not effect old-fashioned tube technology nor fiber-optic technology.
scrap, great for your radio.
But how will you get food or get around?
And let's all be aware of the fact that our government wants electronic chips installed into weapons. That way they would no longer function after an EMP.

I didn’t meet and marry my husband until I was 31. Had a baby at 32, 34, 36, 38, and 40 (almost 41). They are all grown and healthy. The first one was a C-section, the next four were VBAC’s.

I have done several long-term sub jobs and there are three major things I have to deal with:
cell phone use in the classroom, talking while I am trying to teach or give instructions, and throwing (tossing) things across the room. That’s been a problem at every school I’ve been at and these are white, rural students. I’m a stickler on throwing things because it is distracting and you could hurt someone depending on what got thrown.

One can look attractive and be modest at the same time. Men should be attracted to your smile, your kindness, your respect for others. If the only way you can attract a man is to flaunt your body, you are not going to attract the right kind of man for the right reason.
I’ve always been of the mind that you simply should not be displaying parts of your body that only your husband should see (and that includes tight clothing). You want to look “sexy”? Why? What purpose does it serve? To impress other women? Because most men could care less about the clothes you wear. Be sexy for your husband. That’s healthy for a marriage. Yes, men CAN control themselves. Most men do it all the time. But I know lots of good men who would prefer it if women didn’t force unwanted thoughts into their heads because of the clothes they wear. Men react with their bodies first and then their minds. Women react with their minds first and then their bodies, which is why so many women are clueless as to what they are doing to men. And you can knock off the burka crap. There is nothing wrong with being modest and each society has their own version of what constitutes being modest. Modesty focuses on the real you and immodesty makes a woman into an object. I read a study that found out that when men looked at pictures of scantily clad women, it activated the same area in their brains as tools do. Think about that one for a while.
sorry but as a strait man i think with my head first not my body. i enjoy looking at women i dont stare, i admire thier beauty and move on. why? because its the womans choice as to what she wants to wear weather it be in poor taste or not. do i have impure thoughts...what is impure about a womans body? do i lust after them. sometimes, but i remember a time when a stiff wind could do the same thing. i dont care what a woman wears...thats said i feel that teen and preteens are being over sexualized that is the fault of their parents and peer presure from thier freinds. so it all boils down to personal choices WHO AM I TO TELL ANYONE what to wear?

Wow! I don’t even know where to begin with this! My homeschooled children’s professors found them to be more mature than other students they had. After homeschooling my kids, I went back to school and got a teaching license because I wanted to. I found out classes need to be smaller, not bigger. Ten is about right. Otherwise, the students in the back can hide behind their books and computer bags and be on their cell phones instead of listening to the teacher. And teachers do not need to hold a master’s degree. Some do, some don’t. And I didn’t learn a thing in my education classes. Most of what I have learned has come from educational listservs where I get advice from other teachers on how to teach and how to use classroom management.
