II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

No More Miley...


For us, in this house, we have had to say goodbye to Miley Cyrus. After receiving a disappointing e-mail about it and watching THIS VIDEO yesterday (just me and Matt), it is clear that she has crossed THE line. Or in the words of Dannah Gresh (Secret Keeper Girl) "she has just figuratively run across an eight-lane highway".
Ahhh....so, so, so SAD. Click HERE to read the lyrics.

If you have a young girl who is a fan, here is a blog post I think you should read. It will help you know what to say to her as you explain "we're saying goodbye to Miley now, honey."

Hannah Montana 2: a pop star with a secret life as a, um p*&n star?

Yep, time to say goodbye I think...

Well I applaud you for doing this! I can't imagine it's very easy to explain to your girl that her pop star has "crossed eight lanes of traffic" but it will be worth it not to expose her to such blatant sexuality for youth. We have enough working against us without role models carrying themselves in this manner! Good job, friend!!!

I haven't seen the video(tried)but the description I found sounds bad, i did read the lyrics though OMGoodness!!!!! Wow, if she wrote them -that's insane, and if someone else wrote them-why in the world would u choose to sing a song like that???!!!! let me know how u explained it, I didn't see the 'blog post' u were referring to, unless u were talking about Dannah'a (which I did read this week). The only thing my girls know of her is from the movie. W I think likes her more than T "Miley, miley, miley" I hear a lot from here-but its all fromm the movie-she doesn't really know her as a real person, or as a tv entity. So not even sure if I need to address it, its certainly not like we'll be buying concert tickets or cd's anytime soon. what do u think?

I just don't understand the parents who "didn't expect this to happen"...we've been against Hannah Montanna to start with. All you have to do is look back to the Olsen twins who started out as sweet Michelle Tanner and are now anorexic and had previous drug battles, Lindsay Lohan on Parent Trap and the countless others who start off innocent and sweet until Hollywood takes over their lives and they cave and become anything BUT role models for our kids.

I remmeber so many people thinking we were so strict and off the deep end for not letting them watch Hannah Montanna and now while I'm not glad this is the outcome...I'm not surprised and I'm hoping others catch on and stop allowing that crap into their homes and into their little girls lives.

Good for you girl!

I'm with ya Jen ... Miley has gone too far. Actually, her PARENTS and managers have let her go to far. She's still just a young girl. Problem is, she's the moneymaker and no one is telling her no. Except Jennifer Jones :)

Tammy hit it on the nose. Sex sells, and everyone around these young talents wants $$$$ so they lead them into doing sexy songs/dance/clothes/activities/movies. so sad. You want people to be successful in their path, but its so sad that 99% of those young people who acheive it wind up ruined. Not to mention relationships and marriages as they get older.


by the way, just heard she will be performing this song on dancing with the stars tomorrow---what a shame---but a total marketing plan for sure! ugh. I'm sure she'll be sexily dressed and doing sexy moves as she sings these horrible lyrics---unbelievable... and they tout "DWTS" as a 'family show'---not when they put this stuff on!
