There’s a saying that good is sometimes only found when you open your mind.  It’s true; how many times have we been talked into trying a new restaurant that would not have been our first or second choice – or for that matter, might never had tried at all had it not been for a friend talking us into it?  The same holds true for many of today’s contemporary films, too.  Many parents had to make the call this summer whether or not to allow their kids to see Twilight, “the-red-hot-if-you-haven’t-seen-it-you’ve-been-on-another-planet” movie.  Judging by the millions of dollars in revenue the film collected, it’s a fair assumption that most parents allowed their young ones to see it.

For many parents, though, it wouldn’t have been their first choice or the way to spend two hours in a movie theatre; however, many saw it with their kids just to be sure no lines were crossed and if they were, Mom or Dad could quickly usher their little ones out of the theatre.  Turns out, though, amidst all the fantasy, vampires and even violence, this movie actually has a powerful message – and it’s one The Quiet Witness hopes will be what every teen, pre teen or young adult walked away with.  That message is found in the scene when the film’s handsome leading man and likeable vampire refuses the sexual advances of his beautiful human girlfriend and instead insists they wait.  Who knew, right?  Quite the unexpected, but refreshing stance, no doubt.  When Edward formally proposes to Bella, the two of them have what many young couples don’t have today: a pledge that’s still in place and honors the imminent wedding ceremony.

The ring is just lovely as it’s describe in great detail in the book and seen in the film; it was soon in big demand off the silver screen.  It’s as elegant and traditional as the names Stephanie Meyer carefully chose for her characters.  With a feminine oval shape and thirteen stones, it rests beautifully on the band.  Timeless, regal and quietly stated – the designers hit a home run with this ring.  There is one place you find an exact replica and the only place that offers a licensed and trademarked Bella’s Engagement Ring.  As mentioned, the author of the books played a significant role in the design and she teamed with Infinite Jewelry Company to put the finishing touches on the ring.  While there are several companies making “inspired by” versions, the only authorized trademarked replica of the actual ring as described in the Twilight book Eclipse, can be found  at www.BellasEngagementRing.org.

One editorial written about this particular message, posted on a parenting website, and ironically written by a mother, reads, “I would have loved the freedom of making out with Edward Cullen.  To know that I could lose control because he was going to stop me…that’s a gift young women don’t usually get”.  While that may not be the way every parent sees it, you can’t miss the all too common frustration young women feel when it seems as though they spend half their time fending off advances from the one they love.  Ah…but there’s more.  It’s not until you take a step back and see things from a different perspective, though.

Our sweet and noble (who knew those two adjectives would ever be used to describe a vampire, fictional though he is?) leading man, Edward Cullen (played brilliantly by Robert Pattinson), delivers his message with confidence and authority.  But out here in the real world, there’s a more powerful message to be found through Edward’s refusal to engage in pre-marital sex.  Boys get pressured too.  Too many times, the assumption is made that it’s the girls who must spend a good part of their teenage years fending off the advances of their boyfriends, who have no concept of testosterone or raging hormones.  It was refreshing to see a young man, albeit the silver screen, who made the right call.  Hopefully, this will start a chain reaction that includes other teen boys doing the right thing.  Girls too, of course, but this one scene in the film really hits the mark in today’s society.  W8ing for marriage, as it turns out, is important for vampires, too.  On the website www.thequietwitness.com, they have several articles that discuss abstinence and purity issues that young men and women deal with.

If you’re still up in the air on whether or not to allow your pre-teen to see this film, please know this isn’t a recommendation either way; instead, it’s just a glimpse into the mindsets of the two leading characters.  Only a parent can know if it’s appropriate for his or her child.  In the end, Bella, played by Kristin Stewart saves herself for wedding day – and as far as we’re concerned, there’s no better “happily ever after”.

What is Webspeak and Why Should Parents Be Concerned?

As parents, each of us wants desperately to find that middle ground with our teens that will allow us to keep them safe while allowing them room to grow and evolve. Any parent who’s ever heard the words, “Like, that’s like..like.. SO not fair!” (before dramatically storming off to their room) understands that fine line perfectly. It’s what we don’t understand that causes us to lose sleep at night.

Why Mom and Dad are Right This Time

Filipina Girls In Canada- What Are The Things That You Should Know About These Women?

Filipina girls in Canada are increasing in numbers these days. Sometime in the late 20th century, there were only a few Filipinos who are residing in Canada. But due to the country’s low population growth, the Canadian government has opened their country for immigrants. Thus, there are a lot of individuals from all over the world have been migrating since then. The Filipinos are not left behind.

Filipina Girls In Indonesia – Are They Wife Material

There are not much of Filipina girls in Indonesia. From 1,046 folks in 1998, it grew to more or less 4,800 Filipinos in 2001, according to the Philippine government statistics. This number may have ballooned over the past 9 years or so. This is because Indonesia can easily be accessed by Filipinos that would take about half a day’s ride by a small motorized “banca” or small boat.

Keeping Christ in the center of Christmas

Working at a Christian Bookstore for many years taught me a lot of things about gift giving. We had a diehard customer base that would “always” turn to our products for gifts during Christmas and all year round. Continuously, we would have a customer say; “I have a friend who…..” Friend, relative, co-worker, neighbor, you name, these customers were always in tune to the situations their friends were struggling with or challenged by.

Do Christian Books Really Sell?

I have often wondered if Christian books sell as well as general market books. With the rise (and near fall) of mega-bookstores such as Barnes and Noble and Borders, we really have not seen any noticeable expansion of Christian bookstores. As I stroll the isles of the mega-bookstores, the “Christian” section (which is usually combined with all spirituality) has not grown either, in fact has decreased in size.

Lessons Learned from the Gloucester High School Scandal

In 2008, news broke of a “pregnancy pact” out of a northeastern community. The stories that followed were more than a little disturbing, and ones The Quiet Witness followed closely. How could seventeen girls, all age 16 or younger, decide that a deliberate choice to become pregnant would be in their best interests? One girl was reported to have become pregnant by a 24 year old homeless man. Suddenly, the high school’s teen pregnancy rate was four times that of the national average.
