My husband and I enjoy all types of Christian music and eagerly attended the three-day concert. When seated, I began noticing most of those attending were our age or older. I jokingly remarked that I had never seen so much...
I recently wrote a blog about millennials and their faith and I was asked by a few readers to share how we might be able to reach the millennials that are now young men and women searching for answers. I by no means claim to be an expert; but I do have 3 millennial sons who have recently grown in their faith and were willing to give me a glimpse into what mattered to them (imagine that). Like most millennials, my boys...
I love being the mother of a toddler. It makes me feel so smart. “Yes my son, that is a flower and those are clouds….” I can answer all of his “uhhh?” questions. What a blessing it is to have this beautiful child in my life. As King David wrote in Psalm 127 “Children are a heritage from the Lord, Offspring a reward from Him”. But honestly, most days, I feel overwhelmed. We use social media like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to not only show off the most adorable pictures of our kids but we also use it to secretly...

The purpose of this blog is to help the believer appreciate the tremendous value that God places on the home, to see how vitally connected to the restoration of the home is to the restoration of the Church and to understand God's basic order and design for the home.

I am so happy that God taught me how to appreciate now with such a simple lesson. My goal is to remember the lesson and never let it slip, because now is the time.
Balance is a precious thing. Some days I have it and others …not so much. I don’t think my life is particularly busier than most...
Children, whether consciously or unconsciously, are trained by their parents in the direction they should go with their lives.
Two toddlers in adjoining strollers are being pushed along a busy sidewalk by a pregnant woman in her early twenties while she holds an infant in one hand and the wrist of a rambunctious second grader singing “Go, Diego, Go” in the other. What is her story? Where is their father? Has she not heard of birth control? These and many more inappropriate thoughts you wouldn’t dare share with the struggling mother, but would most definitely with your girlfriends later on that day, inevitably cross your mind. Yet, these scornful glances and critical whispers are not new for the young mother. She has been the butt of many a Comedy Central stand-up joke and PTA lecture since she decided to pop out that fourth baby while still subsisting on government cheese. But, now, she and many others in her situation are in good comedic company as the story of one Nadya Suleman inundates our broadcast frequencies from sitcoms to school board hearings.

Unless we are handing down the right things to our kids and grandkids we, as a nation, will be in a world of trouble. Much like the questions in reflection #31, we need to answer some important questions...
