Media Vs. You-Simone Carter

Society tells young men and women that it’s okay to have multiple sex partners. Continually we see television shows and movies promote open sexuality and promiscuous women and men. social-media-862117_1280


No one is promoting being the good girl or good guy. No one is teaching our youth that he/she doesn’t have to give themselves to that young man or young woman who has done nothing to deserve their body nor awaken their love. No one is placing the emphasis on giving your wife something no woman has ever had. No one is placing the level of importance on laying before your partner for life pure. We don’t teach them that to lay before God as husband and wife and enjoy each other is glorifying God and that it is also a form of worship.

Well I am here to tell you that your worthy of the wait. You are worth being treated like hidden treasure that cannot be found until they stand before God and the world clarifying you as their husband or wife. When will we turn our youth back to what is continually deem as old fashion and help them to understand that it’s not old fashion but God’s way of protecting them from heart ache. It helps protect them from feeling used up or worthless.

It all starts with us.

What Is Beauty?-By Simone Carter

What does beauty mean to you? You want to know what I discovered when I google the definition of beauty? Beauty: a combination of qualities such as shape, color, or form that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight. Beauty is no longer the inner person but the outer person. Sadly, we no longer look at a person and see the inner them that shines through. We look at the physical person the shape, color and form that is only pleasing to the eye.

Society has brain washed us to only look as far as the physical appearance but what about the person on the inside   Ever heard the saying,” beauty on the outside and ugly on the inside.” There are so many young girls that walk around with this idea that as long as they are beautiful that’s all that matters. Reality check, you should be more than your beauty. You should be a young woman of integrity, intelligences, and a heart that shines with a light only God can produce.

So how do we go about changing a young girls understanding and definition of what TRUE BEAUTY is?
