Is the Super Bowl Empty?
By: Amy Swanson
I’m a writer and the shy bookish type. I watch one football game a year, the Super Bowl, and most of the time I only pay attention to the advertising.

Everything in that performance went as planne...

By Michelle S. Lazurek, Contributing Writer for MOVIEGUIDE®

As you grow up, you will begin to date and engage in relationships with members of the opposite sex, but I feel I must warn you about how you should act in your future relationships with men. The movies you may watch do not portray women in a positive light. Hollywood does not view you the same way that God does. God wants to liberate you and allow you to be all you can ...
