In 1980 we took the Ten Commandments off the walls of schools. Someone decided these words of Jesus had become non-essential:
“‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.'”.
“If you want to enter life, keep the commandments,” Jesus told the people. (Matthew 19:17-19)
Yesterday was Pentecost, a day that’s been on the Jewish calendar for a long time. It was the day Moses gave the Ten Commandments to the people, and in the New Covenant, the day the Holy Spirit descended on believers.
It’s a day of alignment with the ways of God.
No wonder hell broke loose. Even the sacred ground of St. John’s church was set on fire.
Time to get back to the basics, folks.
Time to get back in alignment.
Time to love our neighbor as ourselves.
It really is that simple, that profound.
Love conquers all.
Our son Sam (pictured above in Africa) knows right from wrong and can explain the issue quite well. Let’s make sure everyone we come in contact with knows we understand our highest calling is to love.
All men are made in the image of God.
Love your neighbor — as yourself.

“The ‘P’ word [perfection] may be the heaviest burden women bear. All the misguided things we do to attain it can keep us away from what we need most – the unconditional love of God the Father. The Girl Perfect Study Guide gives you a map to the wholeness you were created for.”
Nancy Ortberg, author and former teaching pastor at Willow Creek Community Church
“The Girl Perfect Study Guide shatters the lies girls and women believe and points to the ultimate truth, which really does set us free. I am confident that this study will help thousands discover a beauty, purpose, and worth that truly lasts. Thank you Jen for exposing the ‘perfect life’ and inviting girls to experience God’s ‘perfect love.'”

One of the best testaments to what Jennifer is doing for the young girls and women of today is a comment from my eleven-year-old granddaughter: “Grammy, I want to read this book and hear her again. She’s good and I learned a lot.” This is exactly what I experienced from a grown-up perspective when I was introduced to Jennifer Strickland’s amazing story. Read it and see if you don’t get the real story from an icon model and a powerful speaker of truth.”
