Leila’s Review of The Scarlet Virgins

“I should have read this book 15 years ago. I should have been able to tell my 23 year old self that God loves you because you are His child.” Read the review

Sometimes They Fly Away

“I just can’t do this anymore, Ed.” She was serious. “It’s just not going to work.”
 
“But Kathleen,” I pleaded, “it’s not my fault!”
 
I knew it was pointless to argue – this wasn’t the first time I’d had a girl break up with me after all. When a woman tells you it’s over, it’s never because they’re looking for stimulating conversation. It’s an expression of power, not an invitation to discussion.
 
“I don’t want to hear it. We’re done, Ed.”
 
There it was, the brick wall statement I couldn’t hope to bust through. I hated to hear it – we were so great together, Kathleen and I. Well, obviously she didn’t think so, but she’s not the first, like I said.
 
My name’s Ed. Ed Thomas. Ed Phono Thomas. ‘Ed’ is actually short for Edison. Yeah, as in Thomas Edison, inventor of the phonograph which, incidentally, should explain my middle name. I know, parents can be cruel.
 
Speaking of cruel, as I stood there watching Kathleen walk away I could only imagine that maybe I’d rather be burned with irons than by females. Not that I’d ascribe the word “cruel” to my new ex, necessarily, but at that moment I couldn’t think of any more appropriate adjectives.
 
Oh well, win-some-lose-some. Trouble is, I can’t seem to get the “win” part right. My record stands at 0-5. And that’s only counting this year since January. And it’s March. Yeah. Maybe I should go after Kathleen and thank her for helping me keep my perfect record. Maybe I should just go home.
 
I went home.

Can I Be Good and Get Into Heaven?

One of my nonreligious friends asked me a question this past week to answer on my YouTube channel. I originally planned on recording a video answer and publishing this post, but I have unexpectedly fallen ill this week (as I type this I have about a hundred degree fever). So for now, I will only be publishing this as written content, my apologies to everyone who enjoys my videos and was looking forward to this one.

Here is the question:

“If a person lives a great life, gives love to his friends, family and random strangers. If he upholds his beliefs and lives by example…

.. but he isn’t religious,

Does he get into heaven?”

There are so many things I want to say in response to this but first I’d like to say how grieved I am that Christianity is seen as a set of rules and regulations by the general population. I say this because of my background in legalism, I know that the Church has failed so many with this and I feel like this question shows that.

To begin answering this question, I must unpack a few things…

The Scarlet Virgins Book Review by Charlene Maugeri

A big thank you to Enduring All Things​ for the honest book review of The Scarlet Virgins!

“So much literature that I’ve seen on the topic simply bashes purity culture calling its perpetrators “bigots” and “hypocrites” and “pharisees” and the like.

Don’t get me wrong. Some of them are these things. But I think a lot of parents and spiritual leaders are innocent in their motives and are simply victims of the pendulum swing of culture just as the teens they influence. I really appreciated that Rebecca addressed this in her book.”

Breastmilk Jewelry Review

Attention moms! Have you ever been interested in jewelry made from breastmilk, placenta, hair, or ashes?

I’ve always wanted something to save from my breastfeeding journey after my son weans. Our journey has been riddled with difficulties like our NICU stay, his tongue and lip tie, and many other frustrations that made breastfeeding difficult. Despite those things, we made it through and I wanted something to hang on to from this time in our lives.

Precious Mammaries Breast Milk Jewelry and DNA Keepsakes allowed me an opportunity to have jewelry made out of breastmilk and I am loving the necklace they made. You can learn more about the process and the company in this post. http://rebeccalemke.com/2017/09/17/precious-mammaries-breast-milk-jewelry-review/

In Our Pond – The Scarlet Virgins Book Review

Good morning!

I am happy to share with you the latest book review of The Scarlet Virgins from In Our Pond.

“Through her touching book, The Scarlet Virgins, Rebecca chronicles her story of healing and hope, as she sheds the works-based Christianity of her childhood to rediscover grace.  Thirty-somethings who has been negatively affected by the Purity Culture will appreciate how the Gospel shines from her writing.  Parent, who are trying to work through what you should teach your children, will find lots of Scripture to guide you in Biblical thinking.  And church members, you will benefit from this cautionary tale.  Buy it, read it, pass it around- everyone needs to read this book.”
