    Santa Clara County prosecutors are leaning against charging San Francisco 49er Ray McDonald with domestic violence in connection with his widely publicized arrest on suspicion of roughing up his pregnant fiancee, sources familiar with the case said Thursday. The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office is likely to announce the decision soon and issue a report laying out the reasons, the sources said, as it has in other incidents involving the 49ers that weren't related to domestic violence, including not charging 49er Ahmad Brooks with assault after an alleged scuffle with a teammate.

    It seems like a lifetime since I posted anything on my blog.  No, I haven't stopped just taking a break.   My mother had been sick for quite some time, and finally passed away on June 27th.  I guess I have been just processing the whole journey with her, and her very rough ending.  I know at this point she is with Jesus, and in peace finally in heaven.   Since then it seems like its one thing after another I have had to deal with, and my friends keep reminding me to allow myself the time to get back on track with my life.  I seemed to have bounced back after the…

    Once or twice a week I go and feed my mother lunch. Most of the time I fight myself to go more often…and I do…then I don’t…THEN I DO! On occasion I see a small glimpse of her with a facial expression, smile, or movement. Memories of our past are front and center, and then reality sets in for me.She will talk to me, but doesn’t make any sense. Majority of the time she is in her own little world that Alzheimer’s created for her.  You can only get a glimpse of her early in the day, and pretty much nothing after lunch.She used to belong to the group that would wander the halls,…

    I started reading CBMW’s new e-book they released online.  If you read the Foreword by John Piper it seems this is a introduction to the NEW group of complementarian leaders of our future.  ,   I’ll begin with the first chapter of their new e-book.    Owen Strachan is continuing the theme of humans being ‘confused’ by their gender.  How if you allow him to show you the truth about gender and God?  Things just magically work I guess.  WELL at least you are doing it the biblical way anyway right?!  Problem is they are taking the same approach…
  • Grant Layman, "No we didn't call the police!"

    A Christian leader, charged with any credible, serious, and direct wrongdoing, would usually be well advised to step down from public ministry. No such accusation of direct wrongdoing was ever made against C. J. Mahaney. Instead, he was charged with founding a ministry and for teaching doctrines and principles that are held to be true by vast millions of American evangelicals.   The above quote is included in the support letter of CJ Mahaney after parts of a lawsuit were dropped against Mahaney and his church due to the Statue of Limitations.  Translation?  According to the law…

    When I wrote to you last time about an article CBMW put up regarding ‘Headship is Heaven’?  People from all over the internet were talking about how the article went offline after some serious criticism of the opinion given in the article itself.  It wasn’t so much that the website no longer showed the article, but the substance within the article that was seriously troubling. Since that time Associate Baptist Press took up the story, and went into more details about the troubling nature of the content of the article.  The fact that the article was taken down?  It…

  • My Domestic Violence Story: Day 30 - Nursing

    Day 30 – Nursing My goal has always been to nurse all my children for a year. My oldest nursed for a full year, my daughter for 10 months and baby boy, at 17 months, is still attached. Never in a million years could anyone tell me that I would still be nursing a toddler. Yet, baby boy isn’t ready and I have no plans of abruptly weaning him. Recently my abusive husband got upset with me because our son is still nursing. He demanded to know why I was still nursing and when I planned to wean baby boy. The same man who abused me and my children, creating an unstable, dysfunctional home was…

The stigma around women in the fitness and bodybuilding industry doesn’t worry Rhiannon, who has always been a self-titled “tomboy”. “It doesn’t really faze me, because I know what…
