On Focus on the Family and delivering a baby in the snow

← return to Belief Blog

I’ve two questions for all you snowed-in readers today. Ever wonder what the results were for that controversial Tim Tebow ad that ran on SuperBowl Sunday?

And…how would you like to have a baby on a day like this? Well…my neighbors Jolene and Matt Bowman (he is a lawyer for the Alliance Defense Fund) found out today when she went into labor three weeks early. Two midwives managed to get there after neighbors hustled and cleared two emergency parking places in the rock-like snow bank.

Miss Regina Bowman showed up sometime during this morning’s blizzard - haven’t heard the exact time - so apparently all is well. Regina has an older sister and brother.

About the Focus on the Family ad, you should read this piece by LifeNews as to how well the Colorado Springs group did. Web traffic jumped 40 times, logging 500,000 hits and 50,000 unique visitors.

I saw the ad and thought it was extremely tame. Was anyone out there actually offended by it?
