Censored by Facebook AGAIN, & the B³ Apparel Line!

This was not the opening to this post that I was hoping for…but…the Facebook bulldozing machine is at it again. If you remember back in February, Facebook censored my prolife post about Andrew Cuomo signing the Reproductive Health Bill, allowing abortion up to birth. Theyblocked me from promoting it.

Well…their true colors are showing, because yesterday, they did the SAME THING with my prolife post about praying in front of Planned Parenthood!!

I am so angry, that I have no words. NO. WORDS.

I’m telling you – the mainstream media has such an agenda out there, folks. And it is just so upsetting how they’re silencing conservative voices, and squelching anyone who doesn’t align with their efforts to redefine American values.

What a huge disappointment.

*sigh*

The timing is peculiar though – speaking of spiritual warfare. Because the notification that my article had been blocked came on the very evening I went to pray in front of Planned Parenthood for the second time. This second time, I didn’t get attacked by a bird, but apparently, I was thrown another flaming arrow, this time in the form of social media censorship. Fan-frickin’-tastic.

But. I’m letting that go, because I actually have a really exciting announcement tonight.

But first, allow me to set the stage.

One of the first things that people ask me, when they hear the name of my blog, is What does BeautyBeyondBones mean?

I think that since this has its origins as an anorexia recovery blog, most people assume that the “Bones” in the title correlates to that. But actually, that’s not the case.

One of the most meaningful stories in the Bible – at least to me – is from Ezekiel 37: The Valley of the Dry Bones.

There are all these, dead, dry bones shriveled up in the desert. And Jesus breathes life into the bones, and they come together and form a strong army.

“This is what the Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life.” Ez 37:5

And you will come to life.

Come to life.

That’s been the cornerstone of my recovery from anorexia: embracing the life that Jesus died to save. To fully come to life, and embrace the freedom of a life in Him. A life deemed worthy by His blood. To embrace it and live it to the full.

Every single day, He invites us to come to life. He invites us to lay down at His feet, all those things we’re hanging onto, and that prevent us from living in the freedom that He purchased.

So…with that, I’m excited to announce that today, I’m launching a B³ apparel line!

My B³ line emphasizes that invitation to “Come to life” – in however that applies to your life: be it recovery, your relationship with Christ, your relationship with yourself, or simply embracing a life of abundance. Come to life.

My shop offers t-shirts, hoodies, hats, bags, mugs and more – in several B³ styles, and an array of colors, that is stylish for both men and women.

And it’s just understated enough to be the ultimate of classy.

I really wanted to create pieces that would be conversation starters. Because, at the end of the day, all I want to do is share His love, and share His hope.

Come to life – for me that looks like continuing to care for my body, and treating it with love and respect. It’s embracing love and friendship. It’s saying “yes” to opportunities that come my way. It’s sharing my heart with others. And always making time to give thanks to God for the new creation He’s creating in me.

So thank you from the bottom of my heart for checking out my apparel line. All your purchases help support this blog ministry, and allow me to keep BBB going!

  1. All I heard was “I didn’t get attacked by a bird again.” Hahaha. Facebook is annoying. Especially since people pay to promote things. You keep speaking your truth.

    1. Hahaha yeah – thankfully I was in the clear from a bird standpoint!! I know – it’s a jungle out there. Thanks for the encouragement, Johnzelle. Hugs and love xox

    1. Thanks friend 🙂 hahaha creepy Biden hug – that’s hysterical. Thanks so much, I appreciate your support!! Hugs and love xox

  2. Caralyn
    Every time I read stories like this I am saddened and appalled. I am so close to just deleting my miscellaneous profiles Instagram is becoming increasingly vile Twitter is a joke with the bots ganging up on people and good companies. I choose to be a warrior though and never surrender to their evil- We win in the end

    1. Hey Jeff! Thanks for your support. You’re so right about that – it’s literally the Wild West out there. Yes!! Be a warrior for the good!! Hugs and love xox

  3. What? I saw that post on there but never had the chance to say anything but you definitely have a negative reaction to this and it’s possible there are some feminists going through and reporting any anti abortion posts.

    If I didn’t know any better there’s a demonic presence pushing this whole abortion thing. I got banned on Facebook a few times speaking my mind about transgenders just saying that these people need help not encouragement to be a different gender. Hopefully it gets better though.

    I don’t understand though why these women feel like they need to be doing abortions. Leave the kid up for adoption or find some other way if you are not ready or capable of caring for a child.

    As a culture so focused on sex it’s hard to avoid unwanted pregnancies.

    1. Isn’t it just so discouraging?! I think you might be right about that. This world need prayers. Thanks for your support! Hugs and love xox

      1. I think we need to slow it down and take it easy. Best advice from some co workers. No need to rush through anything and start looking at things logically.

  4. Congratulations on the new product line! I love it! I too love that story from Ezekiel. Such a beautiful example of the power of God. Sorry about Facebook, but not surprised. That will not stop what God is doing through you. Proud of you. May the Lord continue to bless you abundantly Caralyn!

    1. Thank you so much Meghan!! Yes! Isn’t it such a powerful passage?! O appreciate that. I’m so excited about it!! Hugs and love xox

  5. Hey Caralyn:
    Your life certainly is not dull. Definitely, a Christian life is not dull for sure.
    If enough of us, your followers, shared your post, a number must have gotten through. When I shared, I never got any fb notice, but there were some likes, and many reads of it.
    Hopefully there are no more bird or people attacks. The enemy will continue getting angrier, but his days are numbered. Many hold you in prayer, with the Armour Of God placed on you, the Blood of Jesus covering you, and a Hedge Of Protection around you.
    There was one particular comment against you on that post, that got my “righteous indignation” up, 😀 and I answered him on your post.

    God Bless you Caralyn, as you must be in one of the largest, mission fields in the western world, if not the world, being in NYC.
    You are fighting the good Godly fight. Like others have mentioned, I will join in prayer that others will join you, as Jesus always sent his followers out in twos.

    Just a thought—-sometime, praying about it of course, – consider asking some people you know and trust, to be intercessors for you. These would be always praying, but continually during times you are out ministering, praying. Then, if time allows, periodically, send group emails with specific requests, as well as answers to prayers.
    Would be terrific Faith Building Experiences.

    Thanks for sharing Christ so faithfully, Caralyn.
    Luv, 😀❤️🌹😘

    1. Thanks George. Haha yeah not dull at all!! And thank you for passing it along – I can’t begin to express how much I appreciate it. You’re right about that – NYC is truly a huge mission field. Thank you for your prayers. You’re a great friend. Big hugs to you xox

  6. I’m glad you stand up for what you believe in yet I wonder do you ever really think about the other side. If you are against abortion fine. I find it strange that the people that are pro life are generally the people who do not suppose to have sex i.e nuns and priest. Why not make all men always where a condom.always. There is more than one commandment. It seems like it is ok to break all the others as long as you don’t break what.They shall not kill. What about the soldiers fighting in wars. Is that ok. You see people do not make these decisions easy. It is something they think about. No soldier wants to kill but when they sign up they may have to face that decision. A sin is a sin is a sin. Just think about how you a judging these women and praying for the aborted baby. Are you praying for the dead the soldiers kill. Just asking. Good post. I like your passion

    1. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on this emotional issue. I think being prolife and valuing the sanctity of human life should extend to all areas. In terms of my presence at PP – I was in no way judging the women. Just the opposite. I was there to love them, and to pray for them. It is not our position to judge – only love. That’s the biggest misconception – that people who pray outside pp are there in judgment and condemnation. I’m sure there, sadly, are some that are. But for me personally – I am there in a spirit of love and compassion. Hugs and love xox

  7. Doesn’t change anything, but: Ezekiel 37:5 “Thus says the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live.” (The prophet Ezekiel was a contemporary of Jeremiah. He lived during the time of the fall of Jerusalem and was among those who were exiled to Babylon.)

  8. Never back down! You experienced an old Soviet-era form of censorship that aims to make someone an “unperson” (one who exists, but is silenced and therefore unnoticed). The pro-death crowd will not prevail!

    1. Thank you so much Steve, I really appreciate that. Amen – God already won the battle! Hugs and love xox

  9. Caralyn, do yourself a favour, dump FB.

    You are so right in saying: “the mainstream media has such an agenda out there, folks. And it is just so upsetting how they’re silencing conservative voices, and squelching anyone who doesn’t align with their efforts to redefine American values.”

    God bless!

  10. This post caught my attention because I have experienced this with Facebook personally as a Christian author and as an editor for a digital Christian news magazine. The national site, One Christian Voice has 20 divisions across the country. My division is SoCal Christian Voice. Facebook has regularly shut down a few of our divisions accounts.It’s interesting that it is when we publish pro-life content. We know Todd Starnes at Fox news and have reported this to him and the page goes back up only to have a problem at a later time. They even block the PAID ads.
    When I interviewed the producers/writers for UNPLANNED for an article, they reported the warfare and blocking they went through just trying to make the film. NO ONE would take their money to advertise but the Christian circles and Fox. On the weekend UNPLANNED released, their Twitter account was “mysteriously” suspended.

    As an author, I paid to “boost” a video I made for my Christian book series Beauties from Ashes. They ran the video with no hassles back in October 2018. I tried to run it over the holidays and the received a message saying my ad was not approved because “We don’t allow ads that promote the sale or use of adult products or services.” They are Christian books! There is absolutely nothing sexual or explicit. The book ARE about spiritual warfare (angels and demons war for the lives of four main characters), addiction, depression, and abortion—with a pro-life message. I appealed and got a message saying they would run the ad BUT IT NEVER RAN. I have tried two other times and got the same thing. Hmmmm…

    We must speak up about this because as Christians, one of the best ways to spread the light of God’s love is through media.

    Thanks for sharing. Keep shining your light!

    1. Hey Beckie! gosh, thank you so much for sharing that, I’m so sorry you can resonate so personally. I know – the fact that their twitter was suspended is just such sheer — awfulness! it’s despicable. you’re so right abouy that! thanks for stoppin gby! big hugs x

  11. I’m glad you didn’t have another bird attack! Well done, you for going back for round two! As for Facebook, who’s surprised. I don’t go on it very often anymore, but I left it up so I could direct my postings there. I got a message that I hadn’t posted anything in a long time. What?!? I went to check my page. It’s empty. Nothing there. Not a single post I’ve ever had there! All erased. I am amazed. I guess they didn’t like the Christian content.

    On to B3. Brilliant move!! I bought the book bag, because I don’t have something to carry my materials to teach on Sunday mornings. Your bag is just the ticket, so thanks for including that along with the other goodies! I pray it is a great success.

    Hugs and loveXOXOXO!!

    1. Yes! thankfully no birds!!! And oh my gosh – all erased!?!? That is just awful. I am so sorry about that Jeff- there really is an attack on Christian content — or anything that threatens their agenda. It is really scary.

      And lastly! THANK YOU for your support of B3!!! I saw your name come through as my first customer, and I gave a huge smile — very fitting 🙂 Thank you so much – I hope it sparks some conversations on Sunday!! Thank you for being such a great friend. Sending big big hugs to you and Julie!! xox

  12. I hope you don’t mind, but I wrote a little (very little) about you praying in front of Planned Parenthood with a link to your blog from my post today. I don’t have 1% of your following, but my post today was on Being Monumental – leading someone to a saving knowledge of Jesus, but I went more toward simply being bold, and you stated that quite clearly in your post.

    When I saw your new post, I was just looking at my statistic page, thinking of where I do not get visitors, and praying about those “corners” of the globe, but wondering if the internet providers in those countries block any sites with the word “Jesus” in them. Then, I see from your post that you are getting blocked in this country. I think you did the right thing with your praying and the posting of your thoughts afterwards. Continue to be bold.

    1. Hey friend! oh my gosh i am so touched by that! Thank you for passing along my post — i am honored 🙂 That definitely could be!! Praying for ya! 🙂 big hugs xo

    2. I had my blog linked to my Facebook commercial page. I got a message yesterday that I hadn’t posted anything at Facebook for awhile. I went there and saw that EVERYTHING I had posted for years had been deleted! At least we’re not having to choose life or death in America…yet. Blessings to you and your efforts!

      1. That may explain why I get the same messages. I don’t have everything deleted, but they may be deleting some.

    1. oh gosh, I’m so sorry to hear that you can so personally relate. Their agenda really stinks!!! big hugs to you – keep putting His light out htere! hgus xo

  13. Good article! I believe in the not the to distant future we as believers in Jesus won’t be able to use social media. We will have to depend upon the old fashion way of communications, live people communicating with live people! Then also depend upon the Holy Spirit to tell us when or where to meet and do certian things. They already do that in China because of the oppressive government.

    Also i believe leading up to the 2020 election you will see more censorship of conservatives and Christians in a effort to stop Trump from winning a second term. Believers need to stay strong because its right!

    1. Hi Ricardo! won’t that be the day! peer to peer conversation! i can’t wait!!! hugs xo

  14. Facebook is so full of nonsense of people bragging , or hearing about all their drama.. when you post something on there that is good they knock it down. I was told by a friend link your blog to Facebook for more traffic.. one u don’t do this blog for traffic . I love to write about things and it’s therapeutic. I would never link it to Facebook . You keep spreading the good. You are a beautiful person . ❤️

    1. Thank you so much for your encouraging words. I so agree – there’s something so therapeutic about writing. big hugs to youx

  15. Love your apparel line – especially the shirt and bag with “Come to Life”!
    Btw, have you heard of “MeWe”? It’s another networking platform which Christians I know are turning to because of Facebook censorship. Xx

    1. Hi Olivia! Oh my gosh, thank you so much! I’m so glad you like it!! I haven’t heard of MeWe – but you better believe that I’ll be checking it out as soon as I finish these comments!!! 🙂 Sounds awesome!! Are you on that platform? Thanks for the info on it! Hope you have a beautiful night 🙂 big hugs xox

      1. You’re welcome! 😊
        I have signed up for a personal profile on MeWe, but I haven’t done anything on there yet. I still use Facebook, since most of my friends/family are on there. However, I’ve only heard good things about MeWe from friends who have had several run-ins with FB – including being banned for a month… twice!! There are a lot of pro-life people over here in Australia who are going through similar struggles and worse. Please keep them in your prayers!
        Thank you! Right back at ya! Xx

      2. Cool! Oh my goodness – that’s just awful – banned for a month!! I’ve heard about that dreaded “Facebook jail” — just bonkers. I will absolutely keep them in my prayers!! Hugs and love xox

  16. no matter what the truth will get out with or without social media. Nobody can shut truth down. It will always resurface. Also, congrats on your new clothing line.

    1. Hey JB! you’re so right about that – the Truth will prevail 🙂 thanks for your kind words! hope you have a great night! hugs xox

  17. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid my sister! Continue to stand up for the righteousness of God. Many are the afflictions of the righteous but GOD WILL deliver you from it all in Jesus mighty name! We ought to remember that these social media platforms are built on the foundations of the devil and his workers itself. Its a war. Darkness against Light. But fear not, the battle is already won in Jesus name! Congrats on your apparel line! I love it! I love the jersey and bag! Do ship me a pair lol! 😛 blessings! Is it on amazon as yet?

    1. Thank you Tammy, you’re so right – God WILL deliver us!! And amen! Already won! That is the good news! That is the hope! Haha it’s on storenvy – and it’s international!! 👏🏼🙌🏼 thanks girl!! Hugs and love xox

  18. Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Youtube are all left wing nutty and they violate the First Amendment all the time. One of these days they will be held accountable for that. Your clothing line is so cool, praise God! I just bought a “Come to life” hoodie! It was super easy to order and I used my PayPal account to buy it. I’ll be rockin’ your brand in D-town! 🙂 It means a lot to me after my battle with Celiac. God bless!

    1. Yeah I’m afraid you’re right about that, Very liberal. And oh my gosh thank you so much!! Ooh I love that hoodie! I hope you love it too! 🙂 so glad to hear it was a breeze for you!! Aww I am seriously so touched and so grateful for that. D-Town, watch out!!! Haha 🙂 hope you have a great night! Hugs and love xox

  19. Don’t give Facebook the satisfaction of consuming your emotional energy. A friend was giving me advice once, they said, if you are thinking of something that happened in the past, and you still have a strong emotional reaction, there is a piece of you stuck there, and you need to let it go.

    That advice applies to the present, too. Shake the dust from your metaphorical shoes and move on, don’t give facebook any pieces of you. I sincerely believe facebook is at best, not a force for good; at worst, a force for evil. I repeat my advice to you, which is worth as much as you paid for it (nothing): Put that awful site behind you.

    That being said, I won’t let that overshadow the news of your clothing line. Congratulations on the achievement, I wish you the best. I am amazed at the brand you’ve built, and I’m curious to see what else you have up your sleeve.

    AMDG
    -Scoot

    1. You’re right, Scoot. Gotta rise above. I love that thought – amen. Shake the dust. Thanks again for your kind words! I’m pretty excited about it 🙂 Hugs and love xox

  20. I seem to remember being taught to pray in secret, being careful not to show our righteousness before others. I might be wrong.

    1. Thanks Evalyn – you’re absolutely right. And I agree – I think boisterously and aggressively causing a “prayer scene” is one thing. But simply going, standing silently is quite another. And additionally, I believe that if believers stand by and just allow abortion to happen without us saying or acting in defense of those helpless innocent babies, is quite a shame. Showing our support against abortion through prayer and peaceful protest – I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. Just the opposite. There is power in prayer. And we are called to be the voice for the voiceless.

      1. Hm. Ever since God made a baby with a hole in it’s brain and took it’s life at 11 hours old, I’ve found it hard to be against abortion when God has the power to save whomever he wills if that’s what his will is.

      2. That is terribly tragic, I’m so sorry to hear that. And my heart breaks to know that you had to walk through that horrible event. I don’t pretend to know why things happen, and I don’t pretend to understand the will of God. But I take comfort in knowing that we will all be reunited one day in heaven, and there will be no pain or fear. My heart and prayers are with you.

      3. Just one more of the vast billions that have ever died and/or never really lived in the scope of human totality. We’re all impermanent. Some are gone in the blink of an eye. Others last only a moment.

      4. And what of my friend’s value when she turned up pregnant at 14? Should the kid have been relegated to the foster care system that’s overwhelmed as it is with too many unwanted kids not being adopted?

      5. She has undeniable value too. God brings about good from every situation – and the life brought about by that union would be that blessing – and could be the answer to the prayers of a couple struggling with infertility.

      6. And infertile couples can adopt existing kids, there’s plenty of them waiting for homes! No nine month wait to start on the process.

      7. Adoption at any age is a beautiful reflection of God’s love for us.

  21. Your blog has been great the last little while, some of the best of your posts I’ve read. I’m a Canadian, but I would not have known of any of this trouble otherwise. And I’ve never read someone important personally impacted by a censored post on Facebook.

    All the same, I think you should keep active on Facebook because of the truth that every day we live the future is changing. Facebook inadvertently helped your nation’s President win in 2016. It won’t be 2020 and 2024 forever.

    1. Oh wow, Odell. Thank you so much – I am incredibly touched by such kind words. You’re right – social media is a powerful tool. And we’ve got to play the the game if we’re going to make a difference. Ya know? Thanks again. Hugs and love xox

  22. Hey girl! I didn’t forget about you; been super busy between school, writing, and my music! But had to comment on the FB censoring—a few years ago, a good friend of mine who is a Catholic Deacon—he and I were censored and placed in FB “jail” in the form of not being able to “comment” on anyone’s posts for a couple of weeks, after he and I also talked about the Right to Life, and mentioned the Lord Jesus, God, and such. We were upset, but it’s just another sign of the times! But God obviously was happy to see His children being bold to stand up for His Word, and for what’s right! You’re doing the right thing, and you too, one Day, will hear the words “Well, done”!😊❤️✝️ Also, I absolutely love the B3 apparel! As soon as I am able, I’ll definitely get some!! They’re awesome looking! 😁 Be blessed, and I’ll “talk” to you soon!💕✝️

    1. Hey Nett!! Oh my gosh FB jail?! That is just so infuriating!!!!! Sign of the times for sure. I’m so sorry that you can so personally relate. And thanks for saying that!! So glad you stopped by! Have a beautiful evening! Hugs and love xox

  23. I would be more concerned if WordPress blocked you. My blog is not on facebook because the pope isn’t. And I’m sure you can do just fine without social media. It turns out this is allowed. Search for Cal Newport and check out his blog.

    1. That’s a great point – looks like to Twitter we go!! Haha did you read the letter that Pope Benedict released today? I have yet to read the whole thing. Would love to know your thoughts. Hugs and love xox

    1. Aww thank you so much Gina!! What a kind thing to say 🙂 thanks for sharing in the excitement with me! Hugs and love xox

    1. Oh my goodness thank you so much Lisa!! I am so excited for you too!! I hope you love it! And truly – I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support and friendship 🙂 have a great night!! Hugs and love xox

  24. Dear Beauty: It is true that the leftist media are working to suppress anyone whose values do not align with theirs. That in my younger days was called Communism. But labeling it would not be politically correct.
    Oddly, Censuring you, and me is correct.
    I believe it is time a media host is developed that ALLOWS FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AND SPEECH.
    America, Canada and what once was the free world have been muzzled.
    Will we stand for our fundamental freedoms being stripped from us?

    Namaste

    1. Hi friend, thank you so much for joining the conversation! It’s true – freedom of expression and speech is so important! That’s what this country was founded on. We need to get back to basics! Glad you stopped by! Hugs and love xox

  25. Facebook did not stop your post from being available for your 42,000 followers to read. The message went out. The most important thing though is you wrote what Jesus wanted you to express. Even if no one ever read it, it honored our Lord Jesus. 🙂

    Congrats on the clothing line but I don’t think anything for me haha. 🙂

    1. Thanks friend – that’s a really great perspective to remember. 🙂 praise God for that. Haha thanks – totally understand! 🙂 Hugs and love xox

  26. Thanks for sharing, my dear friend 🙂

    The mainstream is often not the voice of individuals – only what they consider to be good and (profitable) is accepted by them, but has real life gone into them? Mass media and social internet media do manipulate and control people, thus censor them what is against their opinion. However, this is not our world, not our Home – our real Home is in Christ.
    So we can say: We are in this world, but not from this world and everything that attaches us more and more to the game of the mind in this world, will also cause a mind reaction (that we are angry, happy, the whole spectrum of our mind that changes its colour like a chameleon. Life (soul) was given and blown into our bones (from dust and matter) – now it is up to us to share this beauty beyond bones – which is love that only radiates from heart to heart.

    Love and light to you, my dear warm-hearted friend
    Didi

    1. Thanks Didi – you’re so right about this – this is not our home. We were made for Heaven and are only passing through. Thanks for this wonderful encouragement. Hugs and love xox

  27. We are facing the same dilemma here in Australia with the Labour party ((democrats in your neck of the woods) Pushing for restriction on religious freedoms and private Christian schools being protected from LBGTQ from being employed by them. Gender equality being taught in all schools and free abortions. Just in the last week even our Liberal Government (republican counterpart) upheld a ban on people protesting outside abortion clinics. Face Book have been deleting my posts as well.

    1. THanks friend – I’m sorry you know first hand about Facebook’s censorship. Praying for Austrailia! hugs x

  28. Thought you and your readers would appreciate this information about candlelight vigils taking pace at Planned Parenthoods throughout the nation: ahttp://protestpp.com/locations/

  29. I found this You Tube Video about this guy who abstained from all social media for several months and the positive effect it had had on his life.
    I figure if there are messages God wants to get out there, he will always find a way.
    I had a bee in my bonnet about a few things over the years. I am no stranger to lone protests. I once got told that nobody else agreed with me. It was a child safety issue, one of my personal bugbears but do you know what things did change eventually.
    I have often found it is when I have just shrugged my shoulders and walked away for a while, God has sometimes worked miracles. Often my jumping up and down got me nowhere but giving God space to do his part once I had done mine, I have seen miracles happen.

    1. How interesting, thank you for sharing that with me. Amen – God will always do His part! hugs xo

  30. Hey God really used you to remind me of this. How often I have just walked away and left him to handle things and how things I had been striving for, sometimes for years, have miraculously transpired. It happened only this week actually.
    Thank you, you have helped bring me a little peace.

  31. FB is a powerful corporate entity and a business whose bottom line is profit – thus the censorship – unfortunately. I may disagree with what you say but I defend your right to say it or in this case write it.

    1. Bottom line profit — you’re right on the money, there. THank you friend 🙂 Have a great weekend. Big hugs to you xo

  32. Ma’am,

    Facebook has censored me so often, I have lost track. The most recent occurrence came on April 5th of this year, when I posted:

    {In regards to an alternative lifestyle, I stand firmly with the Southern Baptist Convention that, “We affirm God’s plan for marriage and sexual intimacy – one man, and one woman, for life.” An alternative lifestyle is not accepted by the Southern Baptist Convention; the Bible condemns it as sin. It is not, however, an unforgivable sin.}

    In regards to abortion, I side firmly with the Southern Baptist Convention that, “Children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage from the Lord.”

    After their censorship of the above, I view their it now as, if Facebook isn’t censoring me, then I’m not speaking towards a moral issue deservant of addressing.

    My highest praises for boycotting the Planned Parenthood event.

    Keep up the good fight!

    Blessings,

    Brother Bill King

    1. Oh my gosh that is just so discouraging. I’m sorry you can so personally relate. Amen – moment of conception. Thanks for your support, Bill. Hugs and love xox

  33. “Come to life”, such a powerful statement. Indeed He came that we might have life and have it more abundantly.
    I have been pondering the secularisation of the media lately and I’m glad other people are taking notice. I prophesy, in the name of Jesus that in the next five years we will take over the media, infiltrating the system and flooding it with wholesome entertainment and filling it with the presence of God and using it as a tool to increase the kingdom of God on the earth.
    Congratulations on your clothing line. More power to you!

    1. Thank you so much Chidimma! Oh yes, I am definitely DEFINITELY taking notice too. I pray that be the case! hugs xox

  34. That is so inappropriate for Facebook to be clamping down on the expression of an individual opinion in a non-hateful manner. They’ve been getting heat from congress over their handling of other things, and I wonder if that’s led to them overcompensating and being far too broad in what they choose to limit.

    1. THanks Ashley, I agree — so inappropriate. And discouraging. THanks for your support! big hugs oxo

  35. Cute clothes with inspiring messages! I couldn’t resist ordering one. 🙂 Congrats and best wishes, and you keep doing what the Lord whispers upon your heart. FB can be great, but it can also be very disturbing. You don’t need it to spread the good news of Christ. You’re doing a fabulous job right here. <3

    1. Aw thank you Christine!!! I so appreciate that!! And thanks for your encouraging words too – we’ve got to just keep sharing the Good News however we can! 🙂 Hugs and love xox

  36. This is so funny (not the censorship) the B^3. My husband has three b’s in HIS name and has used the B^3 for decades. I wish you well on your clothing line! Yes, warfare is real and the Enemy has been doing it much longer than we have. At least you are trying. It may be hard, but pray for the people working at FB. They need mercy and an awareness of God and eternity which they clearly do not posses.

    1. Oh you’re kidding!! hahha That’s so awesome!! Thank you Melissa – you’re right – that’s a great idea to pray for them. Amen to that! big hugs xox

  37. Sorry to hear, I have been censored by Facebook also, along with several other Pastors and Christians. I and a few others have been slowly moving to a different social media group that is more conservative and Christian friendly. It is https://usa.life/ Now that being said, I still do post a lot on Facebook because there needs to be a witness that everyone can see. Peace and grace to you in the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

    1. Oh gosh, I am so sorry to hear that you can so personally relate. Awesome – thanks for that resource! I will definitely check it out! big hugs xo

  38. I’m not surprised. Facebook has chosen to back the losers; and as a result of its total irrelevance, it’s a dying platform. In my opinion, it’s not dying fast enough. If you haven’t already, start looking into alternative tech platforms such as Minds (https://www.minds.com/) and Gab (https://gab.com/).

    Do not be put off by the mainstream media’s attacks on either platform (particularly, Gab). Alternative tech is a threat to establishment dinosaurs such as Facebook and Twitter (another dying platform). There have been some hit pieces in the anachronistic media regarding Gab and its awesome tool Dissenter; but this is because the old farts of the media can’t handle any dissenting viewpoints (as you know).

    Yes, there are some nasty opinions visible on Gab. This is what freedom looks like: you take the stupid and ignorant along with the wholesome and intelligent. I’m sure you can block the stuff that’s offensive.

    You’re going to get censored more and more on Facebook; Zuckerberg is a Class-A, all-in Fahrenheit 451 Beatty: he loves to burn. You are a reminder to him and his book-burning minions that their opinions are wrong, and they can’t handle it when you hold up a mirror to their faces and force them to look at themselves.

    I know it seems discouraging, especially when social media is a big part of your ministry. I’m suggesting alternatives that will allow you to continue, even when they’ve eventually banned you from their echo chambers for Wrongthink. This persecution originates because you are having an impact and they don’t like it.

    You’re in my prayers.

    1. Thanks Matt – I will definitely check out those alternatives! Because youre right – sometimes you’ve got to play the game. I appreciate the encouragement. Hugs and love xox

  39. This censorship by Facebook is happening to a friend of mine, too, who posts pro-life messages. It is distressing to see free speech curtailed in a country that was built on that very principle.

    1. It really is distressing and discouraging. Thanks, Beverly, for stopping by and for your support! big hugs ox

    1. Thanks so much! 🙂 Yes! from Ezekiel! It is such an empowering verse 🙂 big hugs to you xox

  40. I just want you to know that I think you’re pretty awesome. I thoroughly enjoy reading your blog. Please continue to be you. And continue to uncompromisingly embody what you stand for.

    1. Oh my gosh, Mike — thank you so much! What an incredibly kind thing to say. Really appreciate the encouragement! big hugs oxx

  41. Well, in this one you have succeeded in covering a lot of ground and making it simple. Stand your ground as your life is a testimony to perseverance. The entire package sells itself. The new Come to Life campaign is a hit and should resonate with those who really do not know. They will come around with your guidance. I love your Logo.

    1. Thank you so much!! I really appreciate that! Yeah I was hoping it would spark conversation! 🙂 Hugs and love xox

  42. It blows me away what new media is doing. just try to remember girl that every shut door brings an open window. What social media doesn’t understand is that every time they try to silence someone they are giving them a platform to yell from! You keep spreading the Word of God and He will keep giving you ways to do it! 🙂

    1. It really is so disappointing. Yes! Gottta look for that open window! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs and love xox

  43. I honestly don’t think that it has anything to do with your content being Catholic, its more about it being conservative and pro-life. The world has gone all socialist, left field and full of liberalism in their views.
    Now I’m all for freedom of speech, freedom to believe whatever you wish.. I’m even all for rights of minorities, etc. I’m against racism, etc., but they make it out that anyone is of conservative view hates all these things and that simply is the opposite.
    People tell me that I have the right to believe whatever I want, but attack me for having those beliefs. So in the sense, they’re attacking the very same rights that you’re trying to enforce.

    It seems that you profile page isn’t your profile page on social media anymore, if you’re not peddling their beliefs.
    Welcome to the world that tells you one thing and does another.. double standards.

    Keep fighting the good fight Caralyn. In whatever way you can, and just know if you can’t find a friend anywhere, you’ll always have a friend in me.

    1. I think you’re right – there is definitely an anti-life movement that is alive and well. Thanks for your support and friendship. Means a lot 🙂 Hugs and love xox

  44. Eph.2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; 2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

  45. So well done! Read your post at 4:00 a.m., because I couldn’t sleep. Here is the verse from Bible gateway for the day: “Then He said to them all, ‘If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it.'” 1 Peter 2:24. This is proof to me that you’re divinely inspired. One thought: Try to move away from black in your new line. There is too much darkness in out society. God has given us a pantheon of bright colors from which to choose. All the Lord’s blessings to you. Applaud your standing for life! Our side is winning, and that is why Satan redoubles his efforts against the vigilant.

    1. Thank you so much Sandman! Oh my gosh I’m humbled by your generous words. And great call – yeah all of my
      apparel is offered in a wide variety of bright colors!! ☀️Hugs and love xox

  46. I love Ez 37! On my 40th Birthday, I was so depressed. I felt so worthless and like a failure. I sat holding my bible and prayed for a word of encouragement. My bible fell open to Ez 37. The first thing I saw was, “Son of man, can these bones live?” (Ez 37:3) I busted out laughing. God really has a sense of humor!
    Over the years Ezekiel 37 has become deeper and deeper for me. As a lay pastor I have preached on Ez 37 several times. It has such powerful imagery. I also love Ez 47. We are “the leaves of the Tree for the healing of the nations.”

    1. Oh wow – God knee exactly what you needed to hear that day. Amen to that. Thanks friend. Hugs and love xox

    1. Thanks Matthew – I do believe you’re correct about that. Thanks friend – yes! Make it tremble!! Hugs and love xox

  47. I do think that media is trying to silence voices that pertain to anything politically that is right sided. I personally support planned parenthood because of all the good they do (I was able to get fast and cheap check ups/ birth control appointments). However, you have every right to share your opinion. Nowadays people like to shun and ignore other peoples values and beliefs instead of embracing the fact that we are all different like we should be. We are all entitled to our own beliefs and opinions. We cannot attack people for sharing that.

    1. Thank you so much Bianca for your support. Yeah, freedom of speech is so important and it’s scary to see that come under attack. I agree! Hugs and love xox

  48. This is a very troubling problem with such large organizations, silencing others sounds more like a technocrat would do, unless they face the ‘lawsuit’ music it ain’t going to stop.

  49. Hello,

    I would take the censorship as a sign your doing something right.
    So keep up the good work.

    Congrats on the new launch! I like branding. God does make it possible for us to live our dreams. You are a living breathing Come To Life Testimony.

    1. Thanks friend – I think you’re right about that. And thanks so much! Yeah I’m pretty excited about it! Hugs and love xox

  50. Thanks for informing us on this. We are going to need another social media to rise up and do the right thing that facebook isn’t doing. I pray that God will make this happen. May God bless the right person and company that does not censor righteousness.

    1. I think you’re right about that. Thank you for your prayers and support!! Hugs and love xox

  51. … and I’ll add that I’m getting sick of facebook. I don’t trust facebook and leave out all my personal information from that stupid website. I’ll encourage anyone to do the same too. I’ve even considered leaving fb.

    1. Thank you so much Christian Armetta – what a kind thing to say! 🙂 Hugs and love xox

    1. Hi Terese!! Thank you so much, yeah that verse is pretty powerful! Hugs and love xox

  52. Zuckerberg is a financial supporter of planned parenthood so of course his institution is biased, but I find this article rather timely for you, ha!
    https://apple.news/A_RPH7z0ORZqG1l13NrSXGQ

    Also, Focus in the Family is doing a live 3D ultrasound on a third trimester baby in Times Square on May 4 in respond to the NY bill. You should check it out!! Love what you boldly stand for!! xox

    1. I heard about htat event in Times Square! how powerful! thanks for stopping by. yeah, pretty disappointing about The Zuck. hugs xo

  53. Congratulations on the apparel line, that is really awesome! So very proud of you and for you. I’m surprised Facebook censored you, especially with all the stuff I see people posting, SMH. I would just keep trying to post it, lol! You can’t censor God…………I may not always agree with you but we have a right to our opinion and our beliefs! Keep up the good work

    1. Hi Lane, thank you so much! yeah – it was pretty discouraging to be banned like that. Amen to that – we can’t censor God! I so appreciate you, Lane! Big big hugs to you xoxo

  54. At the risk of sounding all “fan boy,” YOU ROCK! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your Christian stance. It blesses me to read how someone young and pretty like yourself – who could be lost in worldly things as too many are – stand for God. Please continue and the good Lord bless you!

    1. Oh my gosh, hank you so much 🙂 you are too kind! i really appreciate your support. big hugs xox

  55. It’s both sad and disturbing how not only are we as Christians overly persecuted and scrutinized, but we are expected to be the most tolerant. Take solace in the words of Mathew 5:10-12 “God blesses those who are persecuted for doing right, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs. God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers. Be happy about it! Be very glad! For a great award awaits you in heaven. And remember, the ancient prophets were persecuted the same way.
    Keep living the Faith. God bless

    1. Thanks friend – yeah it is really discouraging. So true! God’s got our back! big hugs xo

  56. GREAT! GREAT! GREAT! (That G3 is just for you!!) And stop wasting your money of facebook. Better spent promoting your new apparel line!😉
