Using a mobile phone while pregnant can seriously damage your baby

A giant study, which surveyed more than 13,000 children, found that using the handsets just two or three times a day was enough to raise the risk of their babies developing hyperactivity and difficulties with conduct, emotions and relationships by the time they reached school age. And it adds that the likelihood is even greater if the children themselves used the phones before the age of seven.

The results of the study, the first of its kind, have taken the top scientists who conducted it by surprise. But they follow warnings against both pregnant women and children using mobiles by the official Russian radiation watchdog body, which believes that the peril they pose "is not much lower than the risk to children's health from tobacco or alcohol".

The research – at the universities of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and Aarhus, Denmark – is to be published in the July issue of the journal Epidemiology and will carry particular weight because one of its authors has been sceptical that mobile phones pose a risk to health.


Dancing with the Stars

Well, after seeing this video of myself made with a camera phone we have a new video ban at ALL YOUTH activities in the future!

And as for me getting beat???? well the next morning in shame I took the game on and I switched to his controller to realize that his buttons were working, in effect I was playing with only one hand :)

That's my story and I am sticking to it! Anyone up for a game of Wii Fit?

This weekend we are putting in an in ground dog fence ... I am sure I will have a host of sermon illustrations as a result but in the process my Grand-Father-In-Law was walking with me telling me about the simpleness of God in scripture.

This morning as we were getting ready for church something SIMPLE hit me.

John 4:19 "We love him, because he first loved us."

What a simple form of election... The Bible is so SIMPLE to those who understand it and to those who are not chosen it is a hard thing.

We have to remember to keep the Gospel Message a SIMPLE message.
