Christian Virgin to Auction Off Virginity at Moonlite Bunny Ranch!

Hello World,

This story saddens me, but as a journalist, I don’t create news…but I do share it. But as a Christian journalist, one of my goals is to share news not just for the sake of sharing it, but hopefully we can be empowered by it…or at least pray for others who need to be empowered. When I came across this story about 23-year-old Bailey Gibson, I knew I needed to share it. Despite the fact that she grew up in a Christian household and was saving herself her marriage, she has given up her Christian beliefs including fleeing fornication it seems, according to the

According to the publication, Gibson was once seeing  a “Christian boy who agreed with her decision to wait until marriage before they started a sexual relationship.  She soon discovered that he had cheated on her by sleeping with his ex on Valentine’s Day, but resolved to stay with him an enter couple’s therapy instead. During the therapy he revealed he had cheated on her a second time, this time on the first date with another girl. ‘After grieving for a while, I came to the conclusion that waiting until marriage to lose my virginity was the wrong decision, because my ex-boyfriend wasn’t worth waiting for,’ she added.”

From, Gibson said, “I’m originally from the suburbs of Sacramento, California, where I was brought up in a very strict, religious household. I attended an all-girls Christian boarding school in my teens, where I had absolutely no contact whatsoever with boys. I currently reside in Wisconsin where I worked as a property manager until I lost my job. The financial stress, and my desire to rebel, led me to the Bunny Ranch and my decision to lose my virginity to a generous stranger.”

I won’t get into the “Flee Fornication” verse because that is the obvious one to reference, but other verses come to mind as I reflect on this misguided woman’s decision. Your body is your temple. See below..

If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple. Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise.  1 Corinthians 3:17-18 New International Version (NIV)

What these verses say to me is that Miss Gibson thinks it’s cool and or cute to sell her body now because the cultural norms make you think that it’s cool or cute, but she gon learn…Many of us become fools so that we can be wise…But at this stage in life, I would rather become wise from other people’s foolish mistakes….What say you? At any rate, she needs prayer….

Any thoughts?


‘Memoirs of a Barren Woman’ Author C. Celeste Marshall Shares Infertility Victory Story on The 700 Club!

Hello World,

As I’ve heard for years now, there is no testimony without a test! On Mother’s Day 2016, I shared C. Celeste Marshall’s victory over infertility in “Becoming a Mother Over 40 & Beyond…Janet Jackson isn’t the Only One…A Mothers Day Testimony…” Her testimony was beautifully captured in her book  “Memoirs of a Barren Women.”  Although my blog was the first media outlet (yes, I consider my humble blog to be a media outlet 🙂 ) to feature her miraculous story, I knew I would not be the last because her miraculous story is akin to one you would read in the Bible!  My college friend was told she couldn’t have children but God told her otherwise! Ten years later, God’s promise was fulfilled with the birth of her son Terry Simeon Marshall in August 2013. Celeste told her husband she was pregnant in Christmas 2012. It is only fitting that Celeste would share her story with The 700 Club during the Christmas season! Her story is a perfect one to share on Christmas Eve just before we celebrate the birth of baby Jesus! SEE her story below!

Merry Christmas!!!

Three Gifts Guaranteed to Give You Christmas Cheer!!! A Repost for 2017…

Editor’s Note: I’ve posted this before, but the Christmas message is renewed every year! Merry Christmas!

Hello World,

I’ve said this before, but I will say it again: Christmas is supposed to be “the most wonderful time of the year!” So if your eyes aren’t twinkling like they are Christmas lights, if jingle bells aren’t attached to your ankles or if you are not burping up eggnog, you obviously don’t possess that sometimes elusive Christmas cheer…

I know that “Jesus is the reason for the season,” but can I be honest? Sometimes even knowing that isn’t enough to dredge up that Christmas cheer that everyone is supposed to be cloaked in like an expensive heavy coat that you only wear on special occasions….

Still despite the manufactured Christmas cheer that retailers will lead you to believe can only be bought, I have discovered there are three gifts, not 12, not enough for your whole family or all your network, simply three that will stoke the furnace of genuine Christmas cheer within you…

I don’t know if it is the example of the three Wise Men or because God is the Father, the Son & the Holy Spirit or at the suggestion of my favorite author Catherine Marshall, but in my 20s, I decided that in addition to the gifts I would give to my friends and family, I would also give three gifts to Jesus…

Now, how does one go about giving gifts to Jesus? Although I feel His presence with me, I have never seen nor touched Him physically…So how was I supposed to do that? I was led to these three verses below as I came up with a way to give three gifts to Jesus…

 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ” Acts 20:35

The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ Matthew 25:30

But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. Matthew 6:3-4

So what do these three verses mean?

1. I was give without expectation of receiving anything back.

2. I was to give to people and or organizations that served “the least of these.”

3. I was to give in secret and not tell a soul.

I have never revealed what I have done before, but since I am writing a post about this, let me share some of the gifts I have given over the years as a testimony to how God has blessed me with authentic Christmas cheer as a result….

There was once a homeless man that I saw every day as I walked from one location to another in downtown Atlanta…All of the store owners on the street were kind to him, and I could see why…He was kind and mannerly and even funny sometimes…I don’t don’t why he was homeless, but he seemed content to live on the street…I thought that since he seemed like he wanted to be on the street, I could at least help keep him warm…I tried to figure out what what size pants the man wore and bought him a pair of jeans (he always had on jeans) and a blanket…When I handed him the wrapped up gift, he seemed not to know what I was handing to him until I explained it was a Christmas gift…Then he smiled…That simple smile made me glow on the inside…

Another year, I decided to volunteer one Saturday at My Sister’s House at the Atlanta Mission…I helped hand out supplies to the women and children that were staying at the shelter…At that particular time in my life, I pretty much hated my job and the fact that I was too poor to move out of my parents’ house…But spending just one Saturday at the shelter showed how much I had to be grateful for…My mom has always told me if you want to feel better, forget about yourself…

And finally another one of my secret three gifts was the doll I gave to a Christmas toy drive one year…although I am not a girly girl, I have always LOVED dolls…I wanted a new doll every  Christmas for years and years…in fact, I used to worry that as a fifth grader, someone at school would find out I still played with dolls and I would be teased…So one year I decided to give the prettiest, most girly, luxurious hair-having doll I could find and afford to a toy drive…I don’t know what girl was the recipient of that doll, but if I have learned anything about God, I know that “every good and perfect gift” comes from Him…I’m sure that the girl who received that doll was the very girl that wished for and deserved that gift…

Although the Christmas countdown has begun,  there is more than enough time to give (and get) Christmas cheer…
