Fight the New Drug, an organization dedicated to raising awareness on the dangers of pornography addiction, believe the issue is a matter of public health.
The group uses innovative ways to inform the young men and women of the U.S. about the hazardous nature of over consumption of pornography. They do so by using scientific facts from studies that analyze the addiction's effects on the brain.
"We feel that education is the strongest tool that we can implement in our society to counteract the negative impact that pornography is having," said Clay Olsen, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Fight the New Drug to The Christian Post. more >>

Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar recently celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary and revealed the most memorable present they received in 1984. The gift may have been an omen of things to come for the family, which now has 19 children and three grandchildren.
"When Jim Bob and I were setting up our home, we had a beautiful wood table that folded out so that you could add leaves and make it really big. We found it used and just loved it. Of course, when we were first married, we kept it folded down because there were just two chairs and the two of us at the time. So, as a surprise, a sweet elderly couple that lived near us arranged to make us something really special for the table. They were like our adopted grandparents and they lived three doors down from our first honeymoon cottage," Michelle wrote on her blog for TLC.
The elderly couple gave Jim Bob and Michelle a crocheted tablecloth, one that would fit the table, even once it was opened to its full size. more >>

Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar just celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary on July 21, and Michelle took the time to blog about their wedding and honeymoon, which were kept at low costs thanks to planning and their need to keep things low-key.
"My wedding to Jim Bob almost 30 years ago was sweet and simple," Michelle wrote. "We actually got married in the hallway of the building – we had set up folding chairs to use as pews! I wanted to do as much as I could myself as a way to save money and keep the expenses reasonable. We didn't buy flowers and barely even decorated the hall. I even made my own bouquet using fake flowers so I could keep them to decorate my home with later."
Michelle went on to note that she made her own wedding cake but had a friend decorate it and that she wore Jim Bob's mother's wedding dress for the ceremony. It was something special that she wanted to do and took great pride in. It was the perfect day for the couple, and on their 25th anniversary, they repeated as much of it as possible: the same pastor to perform the ceremony, which took place in the hallway of their church; the same reception with cake, nuts, and punch. more >>
