Welcome to my blog! I hope to be a resource to help you in your walk with God. Now more than ever we need to get back to the basic fundamentals of moral living and take a stand for what is right and truthful with God as our ultimate authority. His Word is reliable and preserved and can be trusted, so that is the basis for my advice and teaching. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or topics you would like me to cover. I look forward to sharing what God has placed on my heart. See my website at http://www.dawnfoss.tateauthor.com and http://www.dawnfoss.com/ for books and music I have written that will enrich your life!
Ezekiel 22:30: "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none." Let's stand in the gap together!

Anyway, please pray for me as I record this album, that my voice will cooperate, and that all will go well. Most importantly, please pray that God will be honored and glorified in it all. I really believe my patriotic song, "A Country Without a Man", is coming at a crucial time in our country, and will inspire and encourage those who listen to it and take it to heart.
God bless you!

In Noah Webster's original dictionary (1828) marriage is defined as follows:
"The act of uniting a man and woman for life; wedlock; the legal union of a man and woman for life. Marriage is a contract both civil and religious, by which the parties engage to live together in mutual affection and fidelity, till death shall separate them. Marriage was instituted by God Himself for the purpose of preventing the promiscuous intercourse of the sexes, for promoting domestic felicity, and for securing the maintenance and education of children."
Here is a link for further reading about Noah Webster, with some great quotes and other related definitions.

The article goes on to talk about celibacy. Have you heard of this word? It's not a word used very often in our society!
Outside biblical marriage, God's standard for sex is celibacy, saying "no" to both heterosexual and homosexual lusts ([Jesus said in Matthew 5:27-28: "Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart."]). Celibacy is a gift of God that allows the unmarried to live a life of purity and contentment, so that a person does not have to engage in sex to have a full and satisfying life (1 Corinthians 7:7-9: "For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, it is good for them if they abide even as I.But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.").
