A big part of the Edge is to encouraging students to make healthy relationship choices now because today’s choices will affect tomorrow’s relationships. As we talk about marriage in the classroom, most of my students indicate they want to be married in the future.

My word! It has certainly been a long time since I’ve penned something personally.  Life in and out of the office is a little crazy right now. It’s hard for me to believe that the end of the school year is just around the corner.  Time, slow down!

Last week, we finished up our time at Rhea County High School.  I have to admit, I’m a little partial to RCHS. After all, it is my alma mater (Let’s Go Eagles!). And it is here in the county that the Women’s Care Center main office calls home.  In addition, we graciously receive two weeks to spend with the students, which allows for some great instruction time and some casual conversations.

I know I talk about media frequently.  And sometimes, I feel like people are probably tired of hearing about it, especially from me.  However, I can’t let this one slide by. A few weeks ago, I tuned in to Fox one Thursday night.  I’m not much of a primetime TV viewer (unless it’s sports).

A few weeks ago, my husband and I were taking a walk. And, by “taking a walk,” I mean we had just finished jogging and I was gasping for air while my husband nonchalantly carried on a conversation with our three-year-old daughter. As we walked past the jail, my very observant and curious daughter noticed the steel plates over the windows and asked,” Daddy, what is that place?

Just a few weeks ago, I wrote about the new MTV show Buckwild.  I wrote about the bad choices that are highlighted throughout the show. And, about the seeming lack of consequences. Earlier this month, the carefree façade came crashing down. On April 1st, after being reported missing, Buckwild breakout star Shain Gandee was found dead.

“Had no example of a love, that was even remotely real How can you understand something that you never had Ooh baby if you let me, I can help you out with all of that Girl let me love you And I will love you Until you learn to love yourself Girl let me love you And all your trouble Don't be afraid, girl let me help Girl let me love you And I will love you Until you learn to love yourself Girl let me love you A heart of numbness, gets brought to life I'll take you there” – Let Me Love You by Ne-Yo The first time I heard Ne-Yo’s song Let Me Love You I thought “Aw how sweet!

Last time we took a look at the growing trend of single-parent adoptions. I told you about the gut-punching moment I experienced when a friend said “If I’m not married by 35, I am going to adopt.” I showed you the statistics of what children without fathers are up against.

“If I’m not married by 35, I’m going to adopt.” I remember the first time I heard one of my single friends say that phrase. I felt like I had just been punched in the gut. To be honest I did not know how to respond. The statement didn’t sit right but I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why.
