Today, It’s a Completely Different Story

“I put off having a family because I knew that I wanted to be there for my family and I was traveling a lot. At that time, the industry was not ready to allow pregnant women the opportunity to still be on camera or on the silver screen. Today it’s a completely different story, but back then, I would have lost my contract. I would have never been hired again because people were just not ready for that at that particular time.”

Socialism & Secularism: Raising the Next Generation

“America’s public school system is in shambles,
teaching what it’s not supposed to teach, indoctrinating when it should be educating,
and raising the next generation in ways it decidedly should not go — and voila,
no wonder socialism and secularism are spreading in quick-time, throughout the country”

The Most Valuable Thing You Can Give

“The most valuable thing you can give your kids is your time – and, of course, it’s the thing you never seem to have enough of!
Spending time with my children, exploring new experiences and sharing in creative endeavors, is my source of joy and
the greatest gift I can think of. Christmas inspires these moments to cherish, a time to create memories that last.
New Christmases always bring these wonderful memories back.”

No Ice Cream

after your wife has said, ‘No ice cream,’
