Actor James Woods sparred with others on Twitter for calling out the parents of a transgender child. You can see it here. ( Woods didn’t use much tact, but I knew exactly what he was trying to tell them. Stop using your child as a puppet for your politically correct agenda.

For women, one way is with makeup.

Now let me make it clear, I have no problem with the transgender community. I can’t imagine feeling like my skin doesn’t fit. But I also don’t believe God makes mistakes. Deuteronomy 32:4 tells us He is the Rock, his works are perfect… So I do believe transgender people have issues that go much deeper than just their body. It doesn’t make them evil or bad people. In fact, I feel sorry for them, just like I would someone dealing with anorexia.

My biggest issue with the story of ten-year-old C.J. isn’t that he was dressed in makeup. It was that his mother started her blog on their “journey” of raising their “rainbow” seven years ago. Run the figures. That’s right. C.J. was only three. Seems to me the backlash should be against the parents, not James Wood.

children-1879907_1920Let children be children. Too often we put our own political agendas
on them when they are too young to know what they even mean.

Most of you probably don’t know that John Hopkins University stopped performing gender identification surgery years ago because “producing a ‘satisfied’ but still troubled patient seemed an inadequate reason for surgically amputating normal organs.”[i] They started up again in 2016. Was it because they changed their mind or for money. We’ll never know for sure.


The pro-transgender advocates do not want to know that studies show between 70% and 80% of children who express transgender feelings “spontaneously lose those feelings” over time. – Dr. Paul R. McHugh, John Hopkins University


A boy who is ten, much less three, cannot know he wants to be a different gender unless the parents are treating and telling him so. C.J.’s parents refuse to call him transgender, instead using the term “gender creative.” Apparently, he uses male gender words when he refers to himself (he, him), but likes girls’ things. Sounds like non-binary should be the term used.

Will they be just as supportive in the future, if at the age of thirteen, C.J. tells them he wants to become a Christian?

We need to allow our children to be children. If they want to play dress up, let them. That doesn’t mean they want to be the opposite sex. It means they want to have fun.

Eventually, this child will realize what was done to him in the public eye. So, pray for him. He’ll need all the strength he can get to get through the feelings of inadequacy this situation will bring up. Thoughts like Why wasn’t I enough for my parents? and Did my mom really want a daughter instead of a son? might eventually rush through his head. Hard questions for any youngster, much less one who’s been paraded around the internet and television under the guise of political correctness.

It’s summer and the time for vacations and getaways. But, have you ever noticed that as you prepare to leave, something pops up? It seems like no matter what you do, stress never seems to go away.

vw-camper-336606_1920According to AAA, only 1/3 of families
take a vacation each year.

I know someone getting ready to leave for two weeks. Everything appeared to be moving along nicely when a couple of days before they were to leave, her son got hurt. Nothing serious, but enough to be taken to the doctor. A doctor’s visit was definitely not on her to-do list. As if that wasn’t bad enough, someone she knew passed away. She’s also worried about work – that’s one of the problems with owning your own business, if you’re away, you don’t make any money.

It seems like every time you think things are going well, something knocks you off your feet. It doesn’t matter how prepared you are either. That’s how the evil one works. He wants you stressed and upset before you leave so you have a hard time relaxing and enjoying the trip.

We allow worry to get in the way so all we think about are “what ifs” back home or at the office.

We need to realize in this busy world of ours that we need rest. Even Jesus took a break away from the swarms of people surrounding him. Luke 5:16 lets us know that But he would withdraw to desolate places and pray. If Jesus needed to get away, so do you.


Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time. – John Lubbock


Life can be stressful with careers, the kids’ activities, and aging parents. We need to take a break or we could wear ourselves out. This is especially true for business owners and stay-at-home moms. When you own a business, there is constant concern over clients and expenses, no matter where you are. And the job of mother is a twenty-four hour/seven day a week career. Moms need a break every once in a while so they don’t drive the kids crazy.

You have God’s permission to rest and get away from work, even if it’s for just a couple of hours. The fewer breaks you give yourself, the easier it is for the evil to get into your mind. And that’s added stress no one needs.
