- 2. The First Time I Had Sex, by Tina Marie Griffin
This is the kind of very important article that you don't read much anymore. That's because Ms. Griffin's message is about being God-Centered, not Self-Centered. It's about respecting her body and cherishing her virginity and giving it as a gift to only one person – her husband.Click here to read more
- 3. Wait for Me - Rebecca St. James
For young women (older women, too!) who want to separate the men from the boys....
God will bring the right person in His perfect timing. God wants you to trust Him and focus on serving Him now, so you’ll meet your best friend while you’re serving the Lord. How cool is that? And if you’ve already been sexually active, God forgives, forgets and that is NOT who you are as a person. Your past is not your identity. You can make better choices starting at this very moment." Tina Marie Griffin

- 4. TEEN VOGUE Normalizes Sodomy for Young Girls and Shows Them How to do it
Teen Vogue is an online magazine that targets teenage girls. It used to feature fashion, celebrities, and shopping. Since 2015, it began including politics (aka "Trump hatred") and current affairs (transgenderism, deviant sex, anti-Christian, anti-God). The print version reached over 1 million young people. The online version, especially now that it has sensationalized the most depraved human activites, is snagging even more teenagers, even children as young as 11. See Teen Vogue - Wikipedia.
I normally would ignore a publication like this, not wanting to give it a shred of publicity. However, parents need to know and understand the kind of information being peddled to their children via their tablets, iPads, Notebooks, Smartphones, etc.Click here to read more
- 5. Not in Our Schools: Stop the Planned Parenthood Invasion
Ms. Peggy McClain has been investigating and reporting on the hyper-sexualization of Arizona's school children for several years. She has worked very hard to open the eyes of parents who find it hard to believe that their child's school could possibly be a physically and emotionally dangerous place. Some parents sense that something is wrong, but their common sense is overridden by the assurances of the "experts," especially because they are so nice about it. Until, that is, the parent continues to express their concerns. Ms. McClain helps parents refuse to be manipulated and take charge of their children's education. See Delphi Technique - Anyone Who Wants to be Involved in Their Child's Education Should Understand This.
Ultimately, young women who have had an abortion know that they have ended the life of their own child. It is an agonizing fact they must live with for the rest of their lives, no matter how much Planned Parenthood and other abortionists try to dehumanize that child, even to the point of outright lying. See Abortion Facility Misleads Women, Showing Them Deceiving Depictions of Fetal Development .
Today's young people need to know that one-third of their generation has been wiped out by abortion.
Even the schools in Arizona are trying to "normalize" promiscuity, sexual experimentation, and abortion. If your common sense tells you that this is wrong, you are right. No matter which school your child is attending, I urge you to review Ms. McClain's blog, Not In Our Schools, which is updated frequently. You can also sign up to receive newsletters, and follow the blog on Twitter. Recent articles include:Click here to read more

- 9. Please Reelect Jared Taylor for Gilbert Town Council
(Gilbert Watch welcomes this guest letter by Jared Taylor, who is currently serving as the Vice Mayor in Gilbert. He has lived in Gilbert since 1996 with his wife and three daughters.)
Over the last few years, Gilbert has been showered in recognitions. I’m running for re-election to build on our strengths, address our challenges, and keep Gilbert the best place to grow a family and build a business.
Here are a few of the recognitions our wonderful residents and Town have earned: 22nd Best Place to Live (Money Magazine, 2014); 2nd Safest City in the US (Law Street Media, 2016); Best City for Raising a Family (Move.org, 2016); 7th Happiest City in America (Zippia, 2016), and Top 5 Safest Cities to Build Your Startup (Tech.Co, 2016).
We couldn’t live in a better place at a better time. Who would have thought that Gilbert would have grown from “The Hay Capitol of the World” to one of the most successful cities or towns in the US?
My appreciation goes to the many wonderful residents and Town leaders who have made Gilbert so great.
While we have had tremendous success, we continue to need strong leadership to address the challenges we face.
Over the last few decades, a large part of Gilbert’s budget has come from construction sales taxes.Click here to read more
