7 Quick Takes Friday (set #200)

7 Quick Takes Friday

As I started this paragraph, I was just going to give a link but changed my mind. Here it is (watch it, then watch it again, then show other people):

As Christians, love of neighbor means we are pro-life without exception. 12-year old Lia Mills got our attention 7 years ago and is still producing solid videos. Here is a flashback to when she started out:

Some random thoughts or bits of information are worthy of sharing but don’t warrant their own full post. This idea was begun by Jennifer Fulwiler and is now continued by Kelly Mantoan. So, some Fridays I too participate when I have accumulated 7 worthy items. Thank you Kelly for hosting this project!
