Why We Fight

This is a picture we snapped on Thanksgiving Day with our son,
Captain Ben Davis.

Do you think the Country is getting better or worse?  Some people want to look the other way and ask us to wake them up when the dust clears.

Why is it that some people don’t want to be bothered by what’s happening in our world?  One person said she was just not interested in politics.  I can understand people with varying degrees of interest, but in order to be a good citizen, ignorance is not an option.

We owe it to those who come behind us to have a prudent concern over the affairs governing our society.  Some people don’t care about burglaries—-until it happens to them.  Some don’t care about heart attacks or strokes until they or a loved one has one.  There’s nothing like being hurt that will make people think about protecting themselves.  Until we see the connection of how things impact us and our lives, it may be hard to care.

When I was in the Missouri State Legislature, we loved it when the opposing side was absent for committee meetings or the general session.  That meant we could do more business and move much faster.  The same is true about our country.  The less we show up and pay attention, the faster our Country promulgates bad laws, embeds more Socialism and we lose our freedom.

Some people think political ignorance is a personality issue.  If it is a personality trait, we can conclude that some personalities are prone to worry and have a fragile understanding of God’s provision.  However, even in the worst of times, it is possible for everyone to trust the One who called us to be here at this time, especially those who claim to be Christians.

There is something everyone can do.  Not everyone can run for office, but even something as small as re-posting my newsletter makes a difference.  Speaking up at the “water cooler”, sharing good information on Facebook or helping a good candidate run for office will move the dial.  We all have an obligation to be the salt of the earth and to advocate, promote and popularize truth.  Everything is either moving the ball forward or backward.

Political news, even if it’s bad news, doesn’t ruin my day because I am trusting God to take care of me and counsel me in my calling.  Let me encourage you to do the same.  We can be informed, aware and remain steadfast in our resolve to push for more Constitutional government.

What motivates you to keep going?

 “Evil never moderates itself, it never takes a step backward, it is only stopped by good men who are willing to push back against it. If good men and women stand by and pretend that they don’t see it and allow it to progress unmolested, then it will only grow stronger and be harder to stop at a later time.”

A LITTLE BIT OF HUMOR

Tim Benn

Play

Today we interview former Spokane City Council Candidate, Tim Benn.  Tim comes to us today to share some valuable insights on what is going on with the voters.  You’ll find out what’s happening in our elections and what you can do to make things better.

Have you ever wondered if you should run for office?  Every election is full of surprises about who wins and who loses.  Yet, it’s all about who shows up to vote.  On our show you will learn the secrets behind why some win and others lose.

Courage for the Unknown Season

This is a picture of me with our new staff at our new location for Back To Basics Christian Bookstore in the Mid Rivers Mall.  From L to R:  Michael, my parents, Gordon and Marylin, Cathryn, Matthew, Me and husband, Bernie.  I would never have guessed a few months ago that we would be opening up another store in the Mid Rivers Mall!

 

If you had told me last year all the events of this year, it would have been hard to believe!   It’s always surprising to see all the family changes from year to year.  Last week was the first time in decades I didn’t host Thanksgiving.  We moved the family, shut down the store, opened a new store, buried my brother and I turned a year older.  The only predictability is that things are always changing!

In a sense, we can say that all times are uncertain.  Our response to uncertainty shows our courage, or lack thereof.  It always shocks me when people are shocked.  There are advantages to being a pessimist!  We seem to survive our problems better because we not only expect them, we thought they’d be worse!

Where in the World is Cynthia Davis?

Here in the Home Front news room, we were scrambling to get this week’s newsletter ready for publication and frantically searching for Cynthia (who was nowhere to be found) when the phone rang….

“Hello, this is Cynthia Davis and I’m on vacation.”

“What?!!!”, we shouted.

Well, to make a long story short, there was this family reunion and Bernie decided to take the long way home.  Cynthia will be home and back in the Home Front saddle next week.  In the meantime enjoy this week’s intriguing podcast with Eric Moutsos.

Signed, her staff…

Eric Moutsos Police Stories

Play

Eric Moutsos is a former officer with the Salt Lake City Police Department in Utah.  In 2014, he was asked to turn in his badge and firearm then placed on administrative leave until he was asked to resign in 2015.  Eric’s crime?  Although he was willing to provide police security for the event, Eric refused to participate in a Gay Pride parade because he felt that being part of a motorcycle choreography team would give the impression that he supported a lifestyle which his religious beliefs did not support.

What would  you do if you were asked to give up your religious freedom in order to keep your job?   In this week’s podcast find out what has happened to Eric since then, his new book, and what he plans for the future.

Grateful for Blessings!

This is a picture of me with my brother, Jeff. 
Jeff had his last day on this side of eternity Saturday, October 28th

 

My heartfelt thanks goes out to all of you for your continued support.  The mission of Home Front remains the same.  Let me take a moment to share with you some of the changes we’ve had this week.

For the first time, I’m now the oldest child in my family.  When I was born, I had two big brothers.  One was killed in an airplane crash with his wife.  My other big brother just passed onto the other side of the Jordan River this last week.  Your prayers are appreciated. Continue reading

Can the Republican Party be Saved?

Play

Most of the Republican members of the House of Representatives have voted against Christian and Conservative values and have been given a free pass because they “voted with the Republican caucus”.  Some believe if the elected officials are “On the Trump Train”, they’re okay now.  This kind of thinking hinders our ability to scrutinize votes through the lens of the Constitution.

On our show today, we talk with Gary Welch, a former Republican Party strategist and opposition researcher.  He shares with us his insights on what it’s going to take to bring the Country back to living within the limits of the Constitution.

The Struggle for the Heart and Soul of our Country

A blast from the past:  This is a picture from 2011 of me with my kids, Philip and Susanna, in our bookstore the day the bumper stickers arrived!

 

Can the Republican Party be saved?  That’s a question a lot of people ask.  Here are some questions waiting for answers:

1.)  Why can’t the Republicans repeal Obamacare?
2.)  Why are the Republicans still funding Planned Parenthood?
3,)  Will we have real tax reform next year or more partisan “theater”?
4.)  If most of the Republicans claim to be fiscal conservatives, why does the budget continue to expand every year?

There are some good candidates running, but not nearly enough.  It’s frustrating watching a candidate start off fine and then end up abusing the power of the office.   Most voters place a “cult-like level of trust” in the competency of the ruling elite.  Continue reading
