New news :)

Hey everybody! I don't have anything particular or profound to say today, but I thought I should update you on what's been going on in my life.

I've been busy as ever with school. It snowed at my house last week - almost 3 inches! It made me feel so Christmasy. :) Speaking of which, I'm starting to play Christmas music on the piano so that by Christmas I will have learned some new, beautiful songs to play.

Considering the fact that my blog is mostly read by girls, I though you'd like to know that my big brother Erik has a girlfriend! Awww! :) They became "Official" a couple of months ago, but they have been good friends for years. They make and adorable couple, and they're so perfect for each other! Her name is Leah. If you'd like, you can check out her brand-new blog,
God's Daughter

Well, I think that's all I have for now, folks! Enjoy your week :)

Dad :)

I just wanted to tell you all about my dad. He's been such an influence in my life. He's always fun to be with, and supports me when other people don't.

He's a hard worker, and makes sure our family is well provided for. He's smart, and has had many different businesses over the years, because he's good at investing, managing, and creating new ideas.He's also really funny. He is a total nut sometimes, which is why I am too, I guess. ;) His jokes, puns, silly songs and faces are common - always lightening things up.

Also, it's funny to see my serene, quiet mother next to him. ;) Don't they make a cute couple? :D

I'm so thankful for him, and I wouldn't trade him for any other dad in the world.

That's it!

Let Them Live!

I'm taking biology this year. In biology, you learn about life. The past few weeks I have been studying microscopic, single-celled organisms, and it is stunning to realize the complexity of these tiny creatures. And, it confirmed to me yet again something which I have already believed all my life: human beings are fearfully and wonderfully made, and are alive and fully human from the moment they are conceived. How did miniscule protozoa, algae, and bacteria remind me of the sanctity of human life, you may ask? Well, as I began to comprehend how intricate the design of these little creatures is, I comprehended just how elaborate an unborn child is. If there can be that much detail and life in an amoeba, just think how incredible a child in the womb is. Astounding life is existent from the very start, and continues to flourish as the baby forms.

Psalm 149 14-16 says, "I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them."

This is God's word. That means that this is a very serious matter! We must stand up for life, and protect it. It is our duty as believers in Jesus Christ.

I'd like to recommend a blog to you all called Let Them Live. It is written by 3 girls who support life, and are working hard to defend it. Also, please sign their Petition.

Stand up for what God's word says, Christian friends, and let them live!
