This Roar Painting Says it All

It's time to STAND. Actually let's ROAR.

What we believe is not what we say, but what we do.

Do you believe all humans have been given unalienable rights by our Creator...Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, to name a few?

How are you exemplifying that now in the choices you make in these ongoing unprecedented times?

Do you want life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for your children's future?

Mama, it's time to show your children what you believe and to live it out


In case you hadn't heard:

  • Colleges are reinstituting their COVID mandates. Over 100 schools have put in place a vaccine mandate
  • A major Hollywood studio, Lionsgate, is bringing back mask mandates, contact tracing, and  mandatory COVID tests
  • $1.4 billion dollars is being spent to develop yet another (the 7th) COVID booster
  • The federal government is buying up new COVID supplies in bulk and hiring advisers 
  • The U.S. media-nites are dutifully justifying all of these actions as necessary to stave off another COVID outbreak 


We are wiser this go-roundWhat are a few of the many things we have learned?


  • Remote learning is a terrible option for our children. One study showed that 60% of remote learning children were failing at least one class. 
  • Masks are not effective in keeping back a pandemic. (Even Dr. Fauci said so!)
  • Wearing masks is dangerous for children and adults.
  • COVID vaccine risks most likely outweigh the benefits
  • Authorities are not always looking out for our best interests 
    • Did you know in 2021 the Governor of Tennessee signed an Executive Order (see #14) authorizing the State to remove people involuntarily from from their homes? If an agent deems them in need of psychiatric care, they can be admitted and involuntarily treated with psychoactive drugs. 
    • Also that same Executive Order (see #18) approved the temporary construction of quarantine and isolation facilities (Nazi-style COVID quarantine camps?) 
  • Small businesses may not survive another lockdown.
  • To watch news sources that share truth, it probably looks different than the way you consumed news 4 years ago.


I encourage you to take these actions:

  • Do not comply with freedom-grabbing mandates.
  • Go about your normal schedule, and encourage your friends and family to do the same.
  • Pray daily (If you desire to pray with others, ask me about my weekday morning one-hour prayer Zoom).
    • Two great scriptures to pray through each day:
      • Put on the armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18)
      • Pray Psalm 91 as a protection over your family and our nation.
      • If you want to learn more about the power of prayer and practical ways you can powerfully stand for the Kingdom of God, watch this video from a conference I spoke at last fall.
  • Learn more about COVID vaccine facts to make an informed decision for your family
  •  Go here to check out vaccine requirements and exemptions for your children in college
  • Support small local businesses that have the guts to stay open when under pressure to close.
  • Do not forsake the assembling of the brethren. (Hebrews 10:25) If your church closes its doors, attend worship at a church who chooses to stay open (And thank the pastor!)
  • Gather your family and read aloud Psalm 37 and declare that you will delight in and trust the Lord. 
    • 8 Refrain from anger and turn from wrath;
          do not fret—it leads only to evil.
      9 For those who are evil will be destroyed,
          but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land.
    • 23 The Lord makes firm the steps
          of the one who delights in him;
      24 though he may stumble, he will not fall,
          for the Lord upholds him with his hand.
    • 39 The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord;
          he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
      40 The Lord helps them and delivers them;
          he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
          because they take refuge in him.
  • If you need to organize a homeschool co-op with friends so you can pull your children out of the government system, do it.
  • Daily choose faith over fear, no matter how scary things may look in the natural. Trust in Almighty God.
  • If this message resonates with your spirit, forward this email to a friend.

If we've been connected for very long, you may know my obsession with lions, particularly the Lion of Judah. 

My friend Jill recently gave me the painting above, called "The Roar of Generations", and I think it's perfect for this message. 

May our


steadfastness under pressure,

and integrity in our actions reflecting our beliefs



And, may our children do the same!
