Updated Post – Female Reproductive Health©


​In doing some personal research regarding the female reproductive system, I was inspired to know and utilize the information that is out here for us to know. Sort of like a “Health Thing”. I love health! ☺

I was taught years ago, grade school, during sex education, about the female and male reproductive system. Who actually “thinks” about this information? Like health wise? Thinks on a daily basis about this information? You know to keep yourself clean, and not to do certain things, but do you know every part of your reproductive system and what it’s for and what it does? Knowledge is power. God said, my people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge: Hosea 4:6 KJV 

My mother isn’t here to ask certain things. She transitioned from this earth and is waiting the return of the Lord.(Sidenote:  She made it ya’ll! The dead in Christ shall rise first! And we who remain shall be caught up to meet Him in the air! ☺) She taught me certain things and if I had a question about something she could answer, she would give me the answer. But today, I have Google and if needed doctors to ask and find out certain information, and others.

As females, it is very important to take care of our reproductive health or system. It is more than just the place where you urinate, defecate, or have a menstrual cycle. Sexual activity and the creation, growth, and birth of babies take place there.

It is comprised of organs that start in your pelvic area (your uterus on down.) They all play a part in the reproductive system and and it is wise to know what they are, what they are for, and what they do.

Being a female, we have to take into consideration our body, and the topic on hand, our reproductive system. You and I can’t and shouldn’t be doing everything a man does. We were not built for that. Literally. You were not physically built for it. A male’s pelvic area is not built to carry a baby, it is comprised of different things. A female’s pelvic area is. That is it’s purpose, it’s function, hence the name “reproductive” “system”. Life is reproduced through these systems.

Health wise, it is important to know how everything works, so you won’t cause any unnecessary injury to your body. And also, why something is wrong. And when you find out, utilize the information that you have gained.

I hope that this post will inspire you as a female to look more into the female reproductive system and your reproductive health.

Prenuptial Agreements Are Not Of God©


​I have always felt that two people who decide to get married are not to create or sign and should not create or sign prenuptial agreements. 

In reading my textbook for my LEGL 215 class, it briefly covers prenuptial agreements. The textbook definition really enforced my stance against it. I won’t quote it verbatim here, due to copyright laws, but I will tell you in laymen terms that a prenuptial agreement is made before two people get married and is when two people note what belongs to each person in the other person’s property. (What?) (Huh?) 

Usually people who have alot of wealth make out prenuptial agreements.

The definition of prenuptial agreement given by Merriam-Webster:

prenuptial agreement:

law: an official agreement that two people make before they marry in which they state how much of each other’s property each will receive if they divorce or if one of them dies.

prenuptial agreement:

an agreement made between a man and a woman before marrying in which they give up future rights to each other’s property in the event of divorce or death.

Typically, whatever assets that remain when a spouse dies goes to the surviving spouse anyway, there wouldn’t be a need or purpose to create a prenuptial agreement in the event that one spouse dies.

Why are prenuptial agreements not of God? 

It totally goes against God’s idea, creation, and pronouncement of marriage. (Plan A)

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. – Genesis 2:24 (KJV) (Bold Emphasis Added)

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;

And they twain shall be one flesh: so they are no more twain, but one flesh. – Mark 10:7-8 (KJV) (Bold Emphasis Added)

What is his becomes her’s. What is her’s becomes his. They become one flesh. 

A prenuptial agreement does not include or promote “one flesh”, “oneness”, or the outlook of a lifelong marriage, till death do you part. If you have to consider a prenuptial agreement before getting married, you should reconsider getting married. You’re not ready. You’re still thinking about you. You’re thinking about the possibility of your marriage not succeeding. You’re thinking about your money. You’re thinking about your assets. A prenuptial agreement is a Plan B. 

Plan A: God’s Idea, Creation, And Pronouncement of Marriage.

Plan B: Prenuptial Agreement

Should You Invest The Time And Effort In Becoming Debt Free Together Before An Engagement? Something To Think About……..


Inspired by my comment to a tweet that I saw by Dave Ramsey in my Twitter feed, where he tweeted about a couple who became engaged during his live radio show. Normally, people come on his live radio show to give their debt free scream (they paid off all their debt), this couple also became engaged during the live radio show.

 After giving my congratulations and retweeting with my comment of “Love it!” along with hashtags and including @StartMarriage (Start Marriage Right) (a website dedicated in helping you prepare for marriage), I started thinking and tweeted the following question with an explanatory answer. This blog post includes more informative explanatory detail…… 

Should you invest the time and effort in becoming debt free together before an engagement? Or should each work individually on their own debt?

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Genesis 2:24 (KJV) (Bold Emphasis Added)

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;

And they twain shall be one flesh: so they are no more twain, but one flesh. – Mark 10:7-8 (KJV) (Bold Emphasis Added)

They’re not one yet. Something to think about……. 

If you’re courting. That means you are courting each other with the intent and end goal in mind to marry each other. You can expect an engagement. (Where two people decide to commit to each other and marry. )

Versus dating

If you’re dating someone you’re just trying the person out. There is no end goal of commitment involved. There’s no declared intent of a marriage or an engagement. 

With marriage, a life long vow is made to each other (a man and a woman) before God and man. And a life long covenant is established between you and the other person before God and man. Till death do you part. You become one. Everything that is his becomes hers, everything that is hers becomes his. They become one.

Dating:

(1) Man + (1) Woman = (2) Two Single People (Trying Each Other Out)

If you’re having pre-marital sexual intercourse (sex outside of marriage), then you’re two single people with body and soul damage that only Jesus Christ can deliver and heal you of. Sexual intercourse was designed by God to be participated in within the covenant of marriage. It also consummates the covenant between the two. So when you engage in something that was not designed for you to take place in without the correct qualification or proper parameter (i.e. being married to each other) it brings on a whole set of problems that could have been avoided with two words: —> Marriage Covenant. But that’s another blog post.

Courting:

God + (1) Man + (1) Woman = 2 (Two) Single People (With The End Goal Of Marrying Each Other)

Marriage: 

God + (1) Man + (1) Woman + Lifelong Vows + Established Covenant + Witnesses + Marital Sexual Intercourse  = (1) One Flesh

Witnesses can be invitees to the ceremony, the minister who marries you, the judge who marries you, those who sign you’re marriage certificate as a witness. They are witnessing the vow that you are making to each other and before God. God is omnipresent. He is every where he sees, hears, and knows all. Nothing gets past him.

So the equity involved and the emotional equity involved in working together in becoming debt free would be justified within the parameters of marriage. Versus not being in a marriage covenant relationship and in more than a platonic relationship.

Platonic: 

of, relating to, or having a close relationship in which there is no romance or sex. (Merriam-Webster)

of, relating to, or being a relationship marked by the absence of romance or sex. (Merriam-Webster)

With platonic friends, that’s totally different. Platonic friends don’t have that depth of equity such as courtship, marriage, or liking each other in a more than a platonic way involved in becoming debt free. They are just working on something together as friends with a like (similar or common) interest. 

Platonic:

God + (1) Man + (1) Woman = (2) Single People (In A Relationship Marked By The Absence Of Romance Or Sex)

Something to think about……..
