Do you think its stupid for teenage girls to use birth control? No, I don't think it is stupid at all. On the contrary I think it is smart. In my opinion I think having sex as a teen is a little young, however my opinion is not right for everyone and its not going to stop any young men & women having sex. I think that given that fact it is absolutely 100% necessary for sexually active teenage girls to use birth control.

Worship '09

Last night we attended a truly amazing worship event right in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City. It was called Worship '09 - and was put on by Standing Together Ministries. It was the first time my husband & I had been to a large worship event like that & we both left feeling so uplifted. It was basically a music event - a concert of sorts. Our very own Brad Olsen from K2 began the evening with some wonderful worship tunes, including one of his own called "I Remember". What was truly remarkable was the fact that so many churches from around the valley had all come together to worship & praise the One who loves us all - regardless of where we fellowship each week. As the music began, I looked around & saw people from all walks of life gathered & lifting their voices & hands in praise of our loving God. It was moving - and amazing to be a part of such an event. Justin & I greatly enjoyed being with such good friends while we sang away! Blessings & love to you all!
