"Teen Mom 2" star Leah Messer-Calvert has decided to rejoin the cast of MTV's "Teen Mom 2" and publicly thanked God for her life.
Messer-Calvert has seemingly struggled with her marriage and raising three daughters, including one with special needs.

A devoutly Christian couple from Washington whose three young children were taken away from them by Child Protective Services (CPS) after an unassisted home birth, had them returned on Friday but under strict conditions.
One-year-old Levi and 2-month-old twins Morna Kai and Daniel were reunited with their relieved parents Erica May Carey and Cleave Rengo after being removed from the family home for two months. A Whatcom County Superior Court commissioner agreed to give the couple, who believes in a holistic lifestyle, a "second chance" so long as they abide by his orders to alter their parenting methods.
Carey and Rengo, who have a common-law marriage, made headlines in Sept. when they accused the state of Washington of unlawfully removing their then-newborn twins and 10-month-old son over their decision to deliver the twins inside their Bellingham apartment. They opted not to have a midwife present or have prenatal medical care and the decision was attributed to their strong religious beliefs. more >>
Jill and Jessa Duggar are enjoying the married life, and Jessa recently shared behind-the-scenes photos from her wedding to Ben Seewald.
The two newlywed couples got together for a family dinner, then later attended the Duggar family's traditional Christmas recital. Rumors persist that there is sibling rivalry between the two sisters, but neither has bothered to address those rumors or have shown any hint of malice. Those rumors began when people noted that Jill no longer followed Jessa on Twitter. However, on Monday, Jessa posted an underlined passage from the Bible on her Instagram account.
"Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus," Philippians 3:13-15, Jessa posted. more >>
WASHINGTON —The National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty announced on Tuesday the launch of a new coalition uniting human rights organizations, religious groups, and pro-liberty advocacy groups to pressure state governments to put an end to capital punishment.
The coalition, which has up to 15 national partnering organizations, is named the "90 Million Strong" campaign, which signifies the 33 percent of Americans, according to Gallup polls, who say they oppose the death penalty.
With only 28 states and the District of Columbia not currently using the death penalty, and seven states carrying out the death penalty in 2014, the coalition aims to fully mobilize the "90 million" Americans to lobby state-by-state to get the other states that still actively use the death penalty to halt what they claim are "unfair" and immoral practices. more >>
