I was censored yesterday.  First time for me.  Gave me a creepy feeling.  A friend is in W. Africa on a teaching fellowship.  I commented on a picture of a school she recently visited.  Just a friendly “I love your pictures” kind of thing.  I used this blog to leave a comment on her blog.  It came back: “Illegal Words in Use.”  I guess it was faith–or maybe women!! 

I love freedom of speech and religion.  John Adams is chiefly responsible for us having both.  Read his biography by David McCollugh when you get a chance.  John and Abigail’s Christian heritage was a driving force behind the Constitution and the republic which guaranteed our freedom to speak about our religious beliefs.

About Carol Brandt

I earned a B.A. in History from Florida State University and M.Ed in.Higher Education from Florida Atlantic University. I taught high school social studies before “retiring” to full-time homemaking and raising two daughters. Now I love being a grandmother to four boys and a girl. I have also raised five collies.

My husband, John, was an optometrist, who worked tirelessly for his profession through private practice and as a consultant, and served on the Board of Trustees of Illinois College of Optometry for twenty years.

Ernest Reisinger was my chief mentor in this warm-hearted application of Calvinism. He gave me many books! The Founders Journal and Founders Conferences, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, and Charles Spurgeon have been other sources of Reformed thinking as well as the other warm-hearted ones listed in my book, “Warm-hearted Calvinists.”
