F.Y.I.-TOO MUCH INFORMATION

Through one of our home school groups, I came across a site that had too much information about our family. Much was not accurate, but our address, phone, and a few other things were. Apparently they pull (to gather info) from all over the web. The site is

http://www.spokeo.com/

I don't know enough about computers and don't want to officially link to this on our blog, but you can cut and paste this.

If you scroll down (once you've pulled up your info) it tells your general age, whether you have children, and much more. Again, not all accurate.
You can "opt out" by going down to the "Privacy" link at the bottom of the page. Make sure you copy the link to your specific profile (they will ask for it), before clicking on "Privacy".

You will be required (don't love this) to put in your email and they send you a email which you have to confirm the "opt out".

I know the amount of info surprised me and I thought I'd spread the word.

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright shove...no matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the momentum...it is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
