My new brother!

Jonathan Mikah Young was born Febraury 23, 2007 at 4:16P.M. It was the first time I was in the delivery room and watching my littlest brother come into the world was an amazing experience! I was so overwhelmed with joy! God is so awesome! Jonathan is so perfect, he looks just like a little angel! His fingers and toes are so tiny, but perfect and his black hair is so soft. Jonathan means "God is a gracious giver," and it is so true! I happily welcome this new creation into our family.
Holding my new brother just moments after he was born!
All cleaned up and looking beautiful!

He is 8lbs. and 8oz. and 21.5 inches long. He truly is a miracle!

Look at all that dark hair!

Under the light for his bilirubin.

This makes us a family of 11 now!


The Greatest Valentine!

For God so loVed the world
that He gAve His
That whoever
belIeves in Him shall
Not perish but have
evErlasting life.

What do the red letters spell?


Sexual Content...No Thanks!

I go to the movie store to rent a movie and the first thing I do is check what it is rated and why. I pick up a movie and glance at the back: rated PG-13 for language and sexual content. The next one: rated PG-13 for crude humor and sexual references. I look at the next one and the next one: rated for sexuality, nudity, sensuality, innuendo, some sex, strong sexual content; it was all over. Finally after a long period of time I select a decent movie. Driving home I wonder why is it that most of these movies have sexual content in them. Do people like watching inappropriate scenes on the television? People should not be watching this; sexual content shouldn’t even be available to watch. A crude remark about sex or a scene of sexuality can spoil a decent movie or TV show. Movies and public television should not have sexuality in their content.

What happened to the clean family movies and the old TV shows? What was wrong with them? Why do recent movies and TV have all of this filth in them? Family movies are now even starting to be corrupted with a crude sexual remark or passionate kissing. The TV screen that showed married couples in separate beds is now showing unmarried couples engaging in sex. What is happening to our media!? People want to watch this! That is why it is being aired more and more. Although I don’t have cable TV, I have seen what immorality is aired on it, and I do not like it. I feel uncomfortable watching it! There is nothing wrong with having a TV to watch movies and the news. Since television and movies are so corrupted by sexual content, people just need to choose wisely what they will watch and not allow the bad stuff to affect their lives.

Watching sexual content has a big influence on the public, and it doesn’t have a good impact on people’s lives. When one watches two people engage in sexual actions on TV it seems to portray that sex is spontaneous, romantic, and risk-free. This should not be a source of information that young teens should receive about sex, because it doesn’t show the commitment and the consequences. For example, a young unmarried couple declare there love for one another, have sex, and live happily ever after, as we see it on the television. The episode that is concealed is when the girl becomes pregnant and her boyfriend dumps her, or the emptiness and loneliness either one could feel after giving a part of them selves away sexually. What is worse is that small children are exposed to sexual content. I do not think parents would want their child watching these kinds of images on television. There might be no stopping kids from seeing this if they have a television in their home.

The result of watching sexual content can be very consequential. Including scenes of sex and sexual humor is having a negative affect on young teens. It encourages them to engages in sexual activity to young and have actual sex to soon. The consequences of this could be in an unwanted pregnancy, or a killing disease. It can also harm any future relationship between a husband and wife. Giving away the gift of purity before marriage can and will be hurtful and create a very deep wound.

Does it matter? It should. Watching sexual content is not only unhealthy for the mind, but also can lead to stupid actions one could take from watching it. If people are not interested in movies that portray sexual content in an inappropriate or irresponsible way, then they should not support it by watching them, which sends the messages that they want more. Having no sexual content in a movie or on TV could be a rewarding thing. If no one would watch it anymore, then it won’t be in the content of our media anymore. Moreover, if sexuality were not in the content of movies or television then people would not be influenced by it. So, if I pick up a movie with sexual content in it, no thanks!

(I don't remember what grade I got on this essay, but I believe the message is very important!)


Chinese Proverb

If you want to be happy for an hour, take a nap. If you want to be happy for a day, go fishing. If you want to be happy for a month, get married. If you want to be happy for a year, win a fortune. If you want to be happy for a lifetime, help others!


This was pretty fun! I tied with Elizabeth Bennet and Elinor Dashwood. If you want to find out what character you are...just click on the lick below.....
You scored as Elizabeth Bennet. As one of Austen's most beloved characters, Elizabeth Bennet represents what most women would like to become: strong, independent, and loyal. Of course, she has her faults including a stubborn will of iron and a clinging to first impressions. Overall, Lizzie is bright and lovable...something to admire and aspire to.
