I love your comments! Thank you for your encouragement and the links to information I had not previously read (I am assuming that "Kim" was my wonderful cousin who is always on the ball with this kind of info!). I am posting the comments below for your information. I hope that more concerned women will speak up and that we are able to keep this conversation going. I am sure that many of you have seen the proposal to make this vaccine mandatory for public school. This could have serious implications. I am grateful to have the opportunity to homeschool my children and only have to deal with telling our Doctor, "No thanks." Scripture speaks to God's plan for our bodies in 1 Corinthians 6:9-7:40. It is a long read, but do it! Read what God had Paul write to the church in Corinth about immorality and the freedom in the gift of marriage.
Besides the obvious of putting a dangerous chemical into our young daughter's bodies. We are saying ( in my humble opinion) that our daughters WILL be promiscuous. Where is our trust in God and in the power of the Holy Spirit that He will lead them down the right path.
In our house our daughters are being taught what Jesus says about promiscuity. Prayfully and with the knowledge that both parents walked down the isle wearing white-- Married at 36 yrs and 38 yrs old.
That is terrible! I still can't believe that people vaccinate 10 year olds against STDs.
Stand firm. :)
Vaccines are full of poisons, animal viruses, and when they don't use African green monkey kidneys, they are often manufactured using aborted fetuses. Hpv vaccine only effective against small percentage of cancer-causing viruses.
See Barbara Loe Fischer's Vaccine Information Clearinghouse for more info; especially, the very serious side effects produced by this new vaccine in some of the young girls who were given the shots.

How do you feel about the new HPV vaccine?
Our Dr. talked to me about giving this vaccine to our 10 year old daughter. When she realized that she was 10 she shrugged it off and said we could talk about it next year. I had the other children with me and decided to not address this issue in front of them. My discussion will bring up our foundational belief in Jesus Christ and His Word and how that relates to our views on promiscuity and being chaste.
Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts!

I have previously posted on our favorite musician, Rob Biagi, and his daughter Natalie. Links to their sites are on my side bar. Please read below and pray for the Biagi family. We had the pleasure of seeing him in concert in CA before his hospital stay.
7.1.2008 - ROB BIAGI'S LEUKEMIA
In a freaky, "one-in-a-million" case, Rob Biagi has been diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia. We say "freaky, one-in-a-million case" because it was exactly 9 months ago (to the day) that Rob's youngest daughter Natalie was diagnosed with another type of Leukemia: Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. That makes two Leukemia patients in one family with very different versions of the disease (extremely rare). And if you add in Rob's son Matt (who has had nearly 65 potentially cancerous moles removed from his body in the last 18 months), that's a large burden for any family. The Biagis need prayer, encouragement, and help from you. If you wish to send a card, letter, or gift to Rob or his family, please send it to:

THE DETAILS ON ROB:
Rob had just finished a week-long VBS in Carrollton, Texas when he discovered a large lump below his ribcage. He visited his doctor first thing Monday, and tests were begun. His doctor instructed him to go to the Emergency Room at Hoag Hospital. The results showed that Rob's spleen was extremely swollen, and that his white blood cell count was extremely high.
Rob was then transferred to the Intensive Care Unit overnight, then to the Oncology (Cancer) Floor. More tests were run (CT scans, a bone marrow biopsy, 2 blood transfusions and several rounds of antibiotics). The tests revealed that Rob (like his daughter Natalie) has Leukemia. Rob's Leukemia is very different from Natalie's, however, in that Rob will NOT go through aggressive chemotherapy and steroid treatment (which has resulted in hair loss, LOTS of pain, swelling, and a LONG recovery period for little Natalie).
Rob's type of Leukemia is a life-long condition that will be treated by regulating his white blood cell count with medication. His daughter Natalie's Leukemia has been aggressively treated, and will most likely go away, never to reappear.
During his 4-day hospital stay, Rob was surrounded by his family (his wife Kathleen and the kids, as well as his parents and his two brothers and their wives). He is resting comfortably at his home in Southern California.
Rob is extremely disappointed to have to cancel his concert appearances for the next several weeks while his body stabilizes.
NOTE TO KIDS AND PARENTS: Leukemia is not contagious. You will not "catch it" by giving Rob Biagi a "high-five" or a hug at a concert, or by standing next to him for a photograph. Says Rob, "The word 'Leukemia' does sound scary, so if kids don't want to get too close to me for awhile, I understand. Just tell everyone I love them and covet their prayers for my family and me."

I love to bake with the kids. We use that time for Math, following Directions and FUN!
Yesterday we made little cakes in the William Sonoma Car Cake Pan and then decorated them with frosting. The kids had fun. I always divide the group, one big girl with one little boy. They measure and mix. Isaiah slept while we put the batter together, but was ready to help decorate when the time came. I put a car in front of each child...Isaiah dug right in and the rest decorated. Daniel wasn't quite ready for this picture. He almost looks like he was caught with the frosting, but he was actually really focusing on his "project" and looked up at the last second.
