In America, it seems that more and more people are determining their very own personal standards for moral behavior as if righteousness is a matter of opinion. I suppose some people will say that moral behavior is dependent upon your personal convictions and values; however, there are certain principles that we all know to be correct because they are inherent in nature. Take the abortion issue for example. How appalling is it that there is actually a debate about whether or not abortion should be legal? You would not even expect it to be a controversy. What kind of mother would sacrifice her own child as a means of assisting herself? You would think that any mother would surrender her own life to save her child; however, thousands of innocent lives are terminated due to lack of proper regard for life, specifically your own child’s life.

Sexual orientation is another unrighteous practice in which many people feel that it is a matter of choice. It’s always been astounding to me that all of earth’s creatures know that a male and female unite in order to procreate. Every creature understands this concept except humankind. Even those who are not Christians cannot justify homosexuality to be natural. In the most basic sense, the parts simply do not fit together and if everyone in the world were homosexual, humanity would cease to exists. This in itself should evoke a sense of deep-seated insecurity regarding the idea of homosexuality.

As a Christian, I love everyone and my greatest hope is that everyone will give their life to Jesus.

Of course, I expect to receive a lot of criticism for my little statement; however, I have a right to free speech like everyone else and I feel the urge to use it.

My name is Heather. I spend most of my time cleaning (I’m almost certain a psychologist would say I have obsessive compulsive disorder, but I’ve decided to pretend that I’m normal.), cooking, and attempting to write/illustrate/publish a children’s book. I would love to tell you all that I am a former missionary to orphans in Ethiopia, that I’ve donated $50,000 to some worthy cause, that I am an accomplished writer, or that I’m particularly talented in some other area of my life; however,  I’d  be lying.

I hoped to obtain a bachelor’s degree in social work as my first step in the direction towards helping others; however, after multiple extreme circumstances, I decided to settle for an associate degree. By the way, there is nothing wrong with a two-year degree. In fact, I think a two-year degree or even a certificate is a better investment than a four-year degree, unless you have hopes of going to medical school, law school, etc. My problem is that I wish I would have known that I was wasting my time before I became so in debt with college.

My overall goal in life is serving God by helping as many people as I can in any way that I can. Of course, that isn’t going the way I hoped. Funny enough, helping others is not always as easy as it sounds. Still, I do what I can. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to sell my book and donate half of my earnings to a charity and pay my student loans with the other half. Until then, I’m here in my little apartment with my husband and we’re living a happy life.
