Child Grooming & Abduction – A True Story.

Let this go viral even if you don’t know any parents with children-who you share it with just might.

The Prince Blog

Jim decided to share the story of how his daughter was groomed and abducted by paedophiles, in order to help other children and parents.

“Her mother and I divorced when Lucy was five. Her mother has some serious health issues, so Lucy has lived with me, almost exclusively, for 6 years. We are very close and there is a lot of love, laughter and music in our home. She’s my little Princess.

We live in a small, rural town. It’s quiet and nothing much happens. I thought it was a safe place to raise my little girl.

I don’t want to say what I do or where I work.

I was aware of paedophiles and grooming, obviously, but I never thought it would happen to my little girl.

I thought she was safe here, with me.

I was wrong.

Looking back, I was extremely naive, which is why I’m doing…

Join Us in the Fight for Net Neutrality

The WordPress.com Blog

Automattic strongly believes in a free and open Internet and it’s hard to imagine a truly open Internet without Net Neutrality.

What Is Net Neutrality?

“Net Neutrality” is the simple but very powerful principle that all Internet traffic should be treated equally. Whether you’re reading a blog post on WordPress.com, streaming Game of Thrones on HBO GO, or browsing handcrafted tea cozies on Etsy, your Internet service provider delivers the Internet to you at the same speed, without blocking, throttling, or charging extra tolls based on the content you’re viewing. You can learn more about Net Neutrality and why it’s important by visiting battleforthenet.com.

Net Neutrality gives all online businesses, large and small, a chance to reach customers and succeed. It also protects important free speech rights online by prohibiting Internet providers from slowing or blocking sites or messages they don’t agree with.

“Did You Know…? Mom…? Dad…?”

If you have one of the varied entertainment packages and aren’t stuck with network TV or Netflix, you’ve probably seen the commercial (over and over) telling parents they need to get their 11 or 12 year old sons or daughters vaccinated against HPV (Human Papillomavirus).   This is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the US and apparently it’s the only thing parents have to worry about with their soon-to-be adolescent youngsters.  The commercial ends with a young girl or boy asking the question in the title.

It’s a telling commentary on the state of our culture that it believes that this is what is to be parents’ main concern.

Children are a great responsibility.  Through Moses, God has some instructions to Israel about how they were to raise their children.  In Deuteronomy 11:19, He said, “You shall teach them [“these words of mine,” v. 18] to your children…

The Surpassing Worth

In a faraway time, when I was a freshman in college, the leader of the campus ministry I was attending gave me some scanned pages to take back to my dorm and read- as if I didn’t have enough reading to do.

selectlettersofr00romaThe pages were two letters to a Mrs. B. taken from theSelect Letters of William Romaine.Ididn’t know who Mrs. B was, but when I read these two letters, they could’ve just as well been written to me.

In these two little letters, Romaine helped me see for the first time the dangers of looking to my faithinJesus rather than simply looking at Jesus for all comfort and assurance.

I think all Christians struggle with this. I know I do regularly. We begin to take our eyes off the object of our faith and start looking at our faith itself, measuring our assurance from how strong…
