Praying Alabama News
Lauren DeMoss Benson: Weathering these scary times with confidence

We need to get on our knees and turn to God in prayer and beg Him to do a work in us – His people – and then do a work in our country. We need to do what’s right in big things and in small so that when God looks down on us, He sees a remnant of people who are faithful to Him alone, because our actions – the actions of God’s people – are what will heal our land.

Lauren DeMoss Benson: A battle too heavy for our children to bear alone

This fight is not disappearing any time soon, and my heart breaks to know that some children will not escape unscathed because evil is lurking at our doorsteps, in our schools, in our libraries and on our screens.

School Choice Alabama News
Lauren DeMoss Benson: It’s about time the Alabama Legislature took school choice seriously

Lauren DeMoss Benson: Being offended is not a virtue

I find it comical at this point watching even conservatives being outraged about the smallest things, and I’m convinced some people just wait around for the next thing to make them outraged. 

Truth Alabama News
Lauren DeMoss Benson: Indoctrinate your children with truth

How in the world do we keep our children safe from the lies of the world when it seems inevitable they will hear them? We can’t. Instead, we teach them the truth. 

Brittney Griner Alabama News
Lauren DeMoss Benson: Brittney Griner grows up and begins appreciating America

Perhaps “feeling older” means Griner is growing up to recognize that while our nation is far from perfect, it is still the best place on earth to live, and the lies she had been sold by the left were nothing more than seeds of hatred sown by slander.

Lauren DeMoss Benson: Repeating history does not have to be our doom

Repeating history does not have to be our doom. We can repeat it by taking our cues from brave men and women who stood for freedom. We can repeat it by taking a stand against tyranny and fighting against the abuse of power.

Lauren DeMoss Benson: Stop blaming entire groups for the actions of one

When a white man shoots up a church, leftists use that incident to prove white men are inherently evil and prone to violence. Those on the right correctly argue that we cannot make that claim based on one evil man. It’s just not good reasoning or logic.

This is not just a fight in blue states far away. The call is now coming from inside the house as we enter the fight of our lives for our children, here in our own state of Alabama.

Lauren DeMoss Benson: Truth for peace is not a fair trade
