To some, "Duck Dynasty" star Sadie Robertson might seem like she has a perfect life — acting in movies, writing books, modeling, and creating her own clothing line — but the 18-year-old readily admits that she struggles with insecurities.
"I can remember a time where, for a long time, I was really insecure about my body. One day I was so tired of it, I remember I was looking in my mirror ... and I was like, 'God let me see myself for how you see me,'" Roberson revealed on her YouTube channel.
"I'm looking at all of the negative, but when God showed me my worth, it wasn't anything that was on the mirror it was in my heart ... be content and see yourself for the worth that you are." more >>
Gotee Records' newest artist Hollyn was first introduced to the world on the American Idol stage, but after two years of working on her debut album, the young singer is now winning over people's hearts alongside Christian pioneer TobyMac.
The Ohio native was raised in church and music has always had a big influence on her life. Christian music lovers were first introduced to Hollyn on TobyMac's latest album release with the songs "Lights Shine Bright" and "Backseat Driver," which she was also a co-writer on.
As a singer/songwriter, Hollyn co-wrote five of the six tracks on her eponymous debut EP. The edgy inspiring musical piece was produced by Grammy-winning producers Cobra (Dirty Rice and Joseph Prielozny). Cobra also produced two tracks on the award-winning album Anomaly from Lecrae, which explains why Hollyn was able to release her own version of the hip-hop hit by covering Lecrae's Dove Award winning song, "All I Need Is You." more >>
ABC's new comedy "The Real O'Neals," which promises viewers a show about a family that "stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being real," is deceiving viewers with its PG rating, according to the Parents Television Council.
The cheeky, no-holds-barred comedy, which makes fun of subjects ranging from pedophilia to divorce to contract killing and eating disorders, was recently praised by ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee as being " … full of family and faith and joy and humor." But not everyone is laughing.
PTC President Tim Winter says the show's over-the-top content exceeds the boundaries of its PG rating and is calling for the FCC and Congress to overhaul the TV Content Ratings System. more >>
Christians should never underestimate the power of Satan and his temptations, the Rev. Billy Graham says in a warning to believers about the the devil's deceptive nature.
Although Satan will always try to convince Christians that his intentions are good, he is in fact "absolutely evil" because "he is absolutely opposed to God and everything God wants to do," Graham explains in a "My Answers" post on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website.
"Never underestimate Satan's power, and never underestimate his ability to deceive us and make us think he isn't to be feared. In fact, he even deceives some people into thinking he doesn't exist!" Graham continues. "He is not as powerful as God — but he still is a powerful spiritual force who works against God in every way he possibly can." more >>
