Every Job is an Opportunity!

This is a picture I snapped when my daughter arrived home
from her first day of work at Chick-Fil-A

All kids should do chores and get jobs.  Whether it’s volunteering or for a paycheck, there are so many lessons and character development opportunities that only happen when meaningfully employed.

The fact that so many people support government mandates on how much employers pay their staff is a cause for concern.  It also shows how poorly most people understand economics.  Every time minimum wage goes up, it hurts the most marginalized employees, especially teenagers and costs  them opportunities.

Money

I took my daughters to Chicago last week.  Chicago is the economic engine of the Midwest!  I lived there for nearly 13 years and am still amazed by the volume of people, the places to see—and the traffic!!!

An old expression is, “Money Talks —  It always says ‘goodbye’!”

The stock market is higher than ever and real estate prices are still going up.  There’s no question that Donald Trump’s economic agenda has allowed the economy to be more optimistic.

As a result, Donald Trump just had his first meeting with his full cabinet last week.   Here’s an example of the questioning nominees are getting from some members of the Senate.  It shows that some of the Democrats like the idea of a religious litmus test.  If a person is a Christian, he need not apply for anything.

Being Held Hostage

This is an authentic picture of Martin and Gracia Burnham
with Muslim Terrorists holding them as hostages.

The Philippines is considered the only Christian nation in Asia.  About 86% of the Philippines is Catholic and only 5% Muslim, yet the Philippines is suffering from frequent attacks on Christians and we’re hearing very little of it in the mainstream news.  Islam has shown the world a level of evil that’s beyond anything imaginable.

These are not isolated moments of savagery.  Nearly every day there are unthinkable atrocities that prove there are lower levels of Islamic horror and wickedness.  Today’s story is about 19 girls that were burned alive.   The Islamic sympathizers’ goal is to sabotage our way of life by dismantling our Constitutional protections.

Because we feel relatively safe, we are not concerned about being taken by Muslims forcibly and held against our will.  Yet, those living in uncivilized countries live with this concern every day.    The Koran encourages and condones raping women.  At the bare minimum, all governments owe protection to its citizens.

This is one more reason why we must use every tool available to stand against any religious or political system that is violent and does not live within our rules of civility.  We cannot dictate what happens in other countries, but we certainly can maintain our Constitutional standards here in our Country.  The goal of Islam is world domination.

Recently, I was privileged to interview Gracia Burnham, a missionary who served in the Philippines.  She and her husband went through a life-altering experience.  While serving with New Tribes Missions, Martin and Gracia Burnham were taken hostage, along with others, by Muslim terrorists and held against their will for 377 days.  On the day of their rescue, all the hostages were shot and Gracia was the only one to survive.

I have always had a tender spot in my heart for widows.  The idea of a life-altering tragedy that fractures the relationship between a husband and wife is somber and permanent.  Perhaps I feel this way because I have had the happiness of nearly 37 years with my husband and I’ve seen first hand how well God’s plan for the family works.  Regardless of the cause, the devastation to a family is always tragic.

You will enjoy our show this week when you get to hear her share her thoughts.  She also gives us an update on how she and the kids are doing now.

 How would you handle it if the Muslim terrorists tried to take your family?

A LITTLE BIT OF HUMOR

She hurried to the pharmacy to get medication, got back to her car and found that she had locked her keys inside. 

The woman found an old rusty coat hanger left on the ground. She looked at it and said, “I don’t know how to use this.”

She bowed her head and asked God to send her some HELP.

Within 5 minutes a beat-up old motorcycle pulled up, driven by a bearded man who was wearing an old biker skull rag.

He got off of his cycle and asked if he could help.

She said: “Yes, my daughter is sick. I’ve locked my keys in my car. I must get home. Please, can you use this hanger to unlock my car?”

He said, “Sure.”

” He walked over to the car, and in less than a minute the car was open.

She hugged the man and through tears said, 

“Thank You, God, for sending me such a very nice man.”

The man heard her little prayer and replied, 

“Lady, I am NOT a nice man. I just got out of prison yesterday; I was in prison for car theft.”

The woman hugged the man again, sobbing,

“Oh, thank you, God!  You even sent me a Professional!”

Is GOD Great or what?

Important News About Muslims

I was invited to speak at a gathering of the K & N Patriots on September 11, 2010.  We owe it to our Country to protect ourselves against all efforts to destroy our domestic tranquility.

We offer our deepest sympathies to those in London who have just been hit with another Muslim Jihadist attack.  While it wasn’t in our Country this time, we have been through this as well. We remember the biggest attack on 9/11, Fort Hood, Boston Marathon, San Bernardino, Chattanooga, the night club in Orlando and plenty more.

Is Islam a religion or a political movement?  If it’s a political movement, its goal is to destroy the Judeo-Christian way of life which is generally called “Western Civilization”.  For some quick comparisons, we don’t kill people or inflict terror for religious purposes.  We also believe in equality for women, respect for life and freedom of speech.  Islam doesn’t.  We’ve seen plenty of examples throughout the history of Islam of violence and brutality beyond anything a civilized society can imagine—and it’s been going on since Muhammad’s raids.

While some people are afraid of what will happen next, I have confidence that with the right approach, we can be stronger than ever before.  If America goes down, it will not be from the outside forces—it will be from our taking ourselves down.  We are causing self-inflicted harm by allowing “politically correct” ideology to put us into bondage and not assimilating outsiders to the American philosophy.

The good news is that as Muslims spread themselves around our Country, it’s easier to help them find Christ—and they are coming to Christ like never before!  As they permeate many areas of our Country, it should be easier than ever to find them and share our American way with them.  The flood of immigrants is having an impact on us.  However, it is essential for them to adapt to our culture if they want to come here.  The old adage, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do” is centuries old, but still applies.

The so called, “Christian” organizations involved with importing Muslims under the United Nations agreement are told they cannot share Christ with the Muslim refugees.  However, there is no law that prohibits normal, caring people from helping them find the path to true peace with God.  The solution is up to us.  The Government caused this problem, so don’t expect the Government to fix it.

To be fair, the Atheists in this Country are also responsible for the the destruction of our culture.  As a political movement, the Atheists have been taking Christians to court and have been on a mission to remove crosses on graveyards, Ten Commandments monuments and other references to our Judeo-Christian heritage.  Yet, we’re obligated to love our neighbors and help them understand that it is our Christianity that makes us virtuous, honest, freedom-loving and decent people and how we got that way.

The greatest way we can help them is to relate to these people is “one to one” or “family to family”.  Nobody likes being treated like a herd of cattle.  We need to care about how others are doing individually.  This is much different than handing them welfare and feeling smug that we made their lives better.

Not every Muslim has studied the Koran, knows the history of Islam or knows the depths of Islamic teaching.  Many of them were born into their religion and don’t live by Sharia law (which allows men to beat and kill their wives and children and deceive and kill non-Muslims).  For most, the Muslim culture is the only culture they know and everything else is forbidden.  It’s important to be kind, especially considering that most of them didn’t choose their circumstances.  However, where are the Muslim leaders’ condemning these attacks?  It’s hard to give Islam a pass when instead of apologies, their leaders are cheering. 

My son was in a band concert at his school.  It was a hot night in the gym.  One of the mothers was wearing something that covered her entire head and neck.  As I saw her fanning herself, I felt sorry for her.  However, we need to understand that her husband wanted her to dress like this and it is an important practice for them.  It is a sign that she is trying to please her husband, which is commendable.  We have to recognize their culture. The goal is not to change their cultural customs, but to show them love, patience, kindness, gentleness and goodness as we introduce them to our Country.

I’m grateful to live in a country where American women are honored, respected and allowed to make their own decisions on what to wear.  Even in America, it’s possible for women to be in an oppressive relationship, but our civil structure is protective of women in a way that Islamic laws are not.

On our show today, we talk with Tom Doyle about what he’s seeing in the Muslim communities.  There’s lots of good news.  Many are coming to Christ and finding hope, love and peace like they’ve never experienced.  Tom has worked in many Middle-eastern Countries for decades and shares with us from an insider’s perspective about what’s really happening.  You will be inspired and encouraged when you listen to our show here.

What are you doing to assimilate Muslims into your community?

A LITTLE BIT OF HUMOR

Sweetheart Deals

Here I am with some of my favorite folks from Missouri.  John Blazek, Doug Enyart,
Me and Sandi Schmitt. If we look like we’re having fun, it’s because we are!

I like living in Missouri.  There are a lot more “Freedom-Loving” people here than in many other states.  However, what Missouri just did has lots of folks very confused!

By a landslide, the legislators sided with their donors and become blind to all other factors, like how higher electric rates hurt people on the lower end of the economic spectrum.  Principles seemed to fall to the wayside.

Our governor wants an aluminum smelting plant in Missouri so he called a special session to change existing laws to make a special deal possible.  The company, which is a secret, wants lower electric bills.  (Don’t we all?)   However, the package allows the electric company to raise the rates on other customers to allow the consistent gross profit levels for the company.

Drain the Swamp

Ever since Donald Trump said he was going to drain the swamp, people have been wondering how that can be accomplished and waiting for it to happen.  This is a good study for everyone interested in observing swamp-draining techniques.

Here are some observations from my friends: Continue reading

Mother’s Day and the Constitution

This is a picture of me with my mom.  I’m grateful to still have her around. If you still have a mother, make sure you do something special to honor her this weekend.

 

The commercial goes, “They go together in the good old USA, baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet.”  I’ll add Mother’s Day and the US Constitution to the list.

Some things should never be changed.  Many of us share a common angst over the direction our Country is headed.  We may be able to agree on the problem, but there is a huge difference in how we approach the cure.

Changing our Constitution won’t fix our struggles and will only make them worse.  An effort is underway to alter our Constitution.  Those proposing a Convention of the States think if we have different laws it will make our Congress behave better.  There are some good people pushing this idea and while they may not expect harm to come, they’re taking a gamble on our future.  The most charitable way to treat this issue is to understand the naivete in which the proponents are submerged. Continue reading

Why Prayer?

This is a picture of Ken Wienski, Chairman of the National Day of Prayer in O’Fallon, me and my husband, Bernie at the National Day of Prayer in O’Fallon last year.  (I asked them to not make me look short, but they must not have listened!)

Why wait for a natural or man-made disaster?  Most of us remember what happened when our Country was attacked on 9/11.  People were seeking God, praying and buying American flags.  Our bookstore ran out of American Flags and my flag vendors couldn’t restock my store for months!

Churches sent invitations to elected officials asking them to attend services.  I remember because I was an elected official at the time and was so honored to be invited and recognized.

We should all pray!  On Thursday, the first Thursday in May, people all over the Country get together to pray for our Nation.  Continue reading

Honor Flight

My dad and I on the airplane right before take off.

How we treat our veterans says a lot about what we value as a Nation.  Regardless of political party or religious affiliation, no one can doubt that we love the blessings of liberty.  We live in the freest Country the world has ever known.

To continue enjoying our shared values, we must protect ourselves.  That is why having a well supported military capability is a core function of government.  I’m so glad I live in this Country where most people understand this.

On Saturday, I took my dad on an Honor Flight.  He’s a veteran of both World War II and the Korean War.  Thank you for all of you who sent him congratulatory letters.  Every act makes a difference! Continue reading
