I just finished watching "Cyberbully" on ABCFamily. And I couldn't help but react to the movie. Although I haven't personally been victimized by cyberbullies in such a way, I am so thankful for a network like ABCFamily to broadcast a movie that portrays the effects and realities of such things that young adults go through TO the young adults. Like a character said in the movie, "It's like it's not real, and you don't even realize that you're doing it."

There are so many things that young teens and children go through while growing up, and with the world being so much more high tech, the means by which bullying can happen are immense! I'm so glad that this network has upped its level and is bringing awareness to these issues. So many people watch these shows and movies and they can impact their lives in so many ways.

Like I said, I was even effected by the issue in this movie even though the lengths to which something like this had happened to me were minor. It's just nice to know that light is being shed on the situations and people are taking the time and effort to help those whose lives have been damaged by these issues.

Thanks ABCFamily. For making it easier to know that you're not alone in facing these problems or dealing with issues like cyberbullies. And for reaching out to those victims in a way that you have made possible. I love the websites and hotlines that are made available during and at the end of a movie or episode that deals with different issues. You never know how someone will respond to certain situations, but to have that help available is amazing.

God is Great!

Today was a fabulous day! Spent the morning with Colten. I made eggs & coffee and we relaxed watching some missed tv episodes. Then we decided that there's no time like the present to begin our journey down God's path together and deepen our faith! We headed to a Family Christian Store, and I was in Heaven! :) They have everything from t-shirts to jewelry to home decor to church supplies to greeting cards!! We spotted the rosaries (not a huge selection) and I spotted the one I wanted immediately. Purple, shiny, PERFECT! I love it. And Colten found a very cool and modern black one...totally him! He was so excited, which made me very happy!! We also spotted a clearance section and each picked out a keychain that we immediately put on our keys. Colten also really wanted a necklace. I was sad I couldn't afford a pricey one he really wanted, but he settled for a small cross-inside-a-cross pendant and chain that he grew to love. And he's worn it ever since, which it's only been a day, but that's something!! I definitely know where to go for Christian items in the future.

After work, I printed out a "How to Pray the Rosary" for Colten to follow along and for me to refresh my memory! Then, we sat down together, turned the tv off, and prayed the rosary. It was amazing. I never realized that Colten really does have a strong faith, and he's finally letting it show and be proud of it! I really see a very bright future for the two of us and our faith. We plan to pray the rosary on a daily basis. And if we don't have time together, then we will pray it separately, but it will still get done. I really do think this will help bring us even closer together, especially spiritually. I am so grateful for what Engaged Encounter opened our eyes to. <3 Love my life! <3

Our new rosaries! We love them :).
