Last edited 7th January 2015

I got married to Doug in 2005. I knew that we wanted to delay having children for a while, and I had tried pretty much every hormonal birth control method under the sun. I had not, however, gotten the Depo Provera birth control injection. It seemed like a pretty worry-free method.

Last edited 22nd December 2014

Two Cultures, One Demeaning Attitude to Women
Last edited 9th December 2014

In a recent edition of Canada’s National Post Mona Eltahawy, an Egyptian woman, wrote about the rampant practice of female genital mutilation (FMG). In the same edition Jen Gerson wrote a piece lamenting access to abortion in Canada and the need for increased chemical abortions. Ironically, one cultural practice goes to horrific lengths because a woman’s purity is paramount, whereas another cultural practice goes to horrific lengths because a woman’s sexual freedom is paramount. Either way, the woman’s true interests are subordinated to the village, or dominant culture.

Women of the Bible Featuring Lot's Wife Lot's wife lived a tough life dwelling in the sinful place that was Sodom and Gomorrah.

Why did she disobey the angels orders turning back to see the evil town being destroyed? What can we learn from her story today? Lot's Wife's legacy in scripture - Read Genesis 19:1-26.

And let’s be honest, some people aren’t just curious about it, they are angry about it.

Selfie Esteem: Body Image in a Digital Age
Last edited 2nd September 2014

While young women have long faced social pressure to look their best, the fact that “the glare of the camera is never far away,” as Hoder puts it, sets the experience of today’s teenagers and young adults apart from that of previous generations. The message is loud and clear: You must be beautiful.
