The Black & White of Fifty Shades of Grey

Author: Crystal Renaud

As Valentine’s Day approaches, many women will flock to their local theater to see Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to the widely popular film and erotic book series Fifty Shades of Grey. There is a significant irony about linking a holiday about love and romance with a film that glorifies the use of BDSM (bondage, dominance, sadism, masochism) through manipulation and coercion in a relationship.

Ministry Year in Review

2015: A Year of Growth | 2016: A Year of New Vision

Between joining a gym and losing 30 pounds, I have taken some much needed strides in making my overall health a priority. I also entered the last year of my bachelor’s program at Liberty University and will complete my coursework in March.

Your Generosity Makes a Difference!

W3 basic graphicWhole Women Weekend is quite a financial undertaking. But thanks to the generosity of others, we’ve been able to scholarship close to 15 women who could not afford to attend on their own.

Eight of these women include residents of The Samaritan Women, a Christian organization in the Baltimore area providing restorative care to survivors of human trafficking. These precious women will get to hear from Annie Lobert, a human trafficking survivor herself, and learn what it means to be identified by Christ, and not by their past or what has been done to them. Additionally, we are offering a service project during the conference that will directly benefit this organization. 

I want to take just a moment to ask you to prayerfully consider supporting this event with a financial gif...

In the News: New TV Shows to Avoid!
• According to Charisma News, “A&E, the same network that brings us Duck Dynasty and all the Robertson family’s Christian values, is broadcasting a disturbing new show called Neighbors With Benefits. The new original real-life series follows the residents of an average suburban community in Ohio where the couples maintain a not-so average way of life: Neighbors are often more than just friends in this seemingly ordinary neighborhood that has become home to the controversial, yet surprisingly common, ‘swinger’ lifestyle...
