Author/comedian of SNL fame, loved dogs. She wrote of a particular dog that was about to give birth to six puppies She would put one front leg forward, then the other, but do

nothing with the reattached rear legs. In other words, she would take two steps, flip up her rump and move forward

Josh McDowell In 12 months: 500,000 children will attempt suicide. More than 1,000,000 kids will run

away from home; 275,000 teenage girls will give birth to illegitimate babies; 418,000 girls under nineteen will have received an abortion

2005 Surveillance Report: Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) remain a major public health challenge in the United States CDC estimates that 19,000,000 new infections occur each year Direct medical costs associated with STDs in the United States

are estimated at up to $14.1 billion annually. It is true that by the time the child becomes an adolescent, he/she knows exactly what their parents believe. But

he/she does not always comprehend the reasons behind the beliefs. And thats why its important to take time to communicate to your kids why you believe

what you believe. Summary and Conclusion: May we communicate to our kids we believe the Truth of God and His Word and let our actions match up with our words!! I pray that you see with me this is what

makes for functional not dysfunctional family living!
