A New Level of Depravity

I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

Scriptures tell us not to expect those in darkness to act like those who are in the light. Still, when I come across something that should be obvious to all that it's not a good idea, it still shocks me a little.

There's an entirely new category of books at the book store titled, "Teen Paranormal Romance." I'd like to say it's a wee section with a few books, but it's pretty large. Thank goodness Glenna rolled her eyes when she saw it.

Speaking of Glenna, she's required to read Edgar Allen Poe for her Literature class. This is the first time she's read about things like murder and ghosts and supernatural happenings, other than in the Bible. ;-) She absolutely loves his writing style, and who can blame her? Still, the sooner we move out of that mind, the better!

Ah, homeschooling. Gone are the days of The Little House books! We can only read the Narnia series so many times, too. I'm so thankful that she loves to talk about the things she's reading so we can dialogue.

Peeking out from under the rock a little today.

I'm embarrassed to say that for a short while, I bought into that whole vampire craze. What was I thinking? Just another easy way to pollute my mind that I try so hard to keep clean!I guess there will always be temptations! Thanks Beth Moore, for giving my brain a good scrubbing :)

I'm all for Bram Stoker vampires, which have nothing to do with the frivolity of a certain movie series craze...

And as you know, I'm a Poe die-hard! Depravity is a very real part of life, and Poe has such a way of revealing the ugly parts of man. Accompanied with good dialogue, his stories can be great learning experiences!
