Tim Tebow

The other day, I received an email from a friend of mine. The subject of the email was, Pam s Story. It looked like any other forwarded email, and usually I just delete them. I have no idea what prompted me to open this one, but, I did. Let me just share the first four paragraphs of this email with you.

Pam knows the pain of considering abortion. More than 24 years ago, she and her husband Bob were serving as missionaries to the Phillipines and praying for a fifth child. Pam contracted amoebic dysentery, an infection of the intestine caused by a parasite found in contaminated food or drink. She went into a coma and was treated with strong antibiotics before they discovered she was pregnant.

Doctors urged her to abort the baby for her own safety and told her that the medicines had caused irreversible damage to her baby. She refused the abortion and cited her Christian faith as the reason for her hope that her son would be born without the devastating disabilities physicians predicted. Pam said the doctors didn t think of it as a life, they thought of it as a mass of fetal tissue.

While pregnant, Pam nearly lost their baby four times but refused to consider abortion. She recalled making a pledge to God with her husband: If you will give us a son, we ll name him Timothy and we ll dedicate him to you and trust you to call him as a preacher of the gospel.

Pam ultimately spent the last two months of her pregnancy in bed and eventually gave birth to a healthy baby boy August 14, 1987. Pam s youngest son is indeed a preacher. He preaches in prisons, makes hospital visits, and serves with his father s ministry in the Phillipines. He also

Tips For Shopping Online

1. Turn it into a habit to register for price alerts. This goes even for purchases that you've recently made. Price alerts will let you know each time a product has dropped to a price you want. And if you've recently purchased at full price, you are able to ask for a price adjustment to fulfill the new deal.

2. Do not forget to comparison shop when you are looking for things online. People usually do that when shopping in physical stores, but they don't think about it on the web. If you choose the first sale you see, you will find a chance you are going to miss out on an improved deal somewhere else.

3. Online shopping is a great way to find items that are out of stock at your local store. For example, if you are unable to find a certain size of jeans at the store close to you, you can look on the store's website and discover if they are offered to be shipped to you.

4. If you're purchasing clothes or shoes online, be careful using the sizing. Some items typically run smaller or bigger than normal. Some shopping sites will advertise if an item runs true to size. If the site doesn't list anything about sizing, glance at the reviews. In most cases, if the item is running larger or smaller, the reviewers will let you know.

5. A great way to stay safe while shopping online is to avoid clicking any web addresses that are sent into your email. If you are expecting an email coming from a company, visit the actual website and do not click any links. Legitimate businesses do not send emails seeking personal information or account information.
