  • Sow fertilizer, help children grow through affirmation

    “Whatever you are affirming, you are fertilizing.” That’s been one of the tough parenting lessons that I’ve had to learn over the years. 

    I’m not a farmer. I’m not really even a gardener, even though we grew a few peppers this summer in our backyard.

  • Gratitude, Grit or Grouch?

    When it comes to life’s circumstances and what goes on each day, how do you respond with gratitude, grit or grouch? And is your response determined by your circumstance or by your character?

    Here is a quiz to assess your response. Let’s start:

    Question 1:You are in the 20 item line at Walmart with your two cans of green beans, one can of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup and one package of French Fried onions. The person in front of you has a full shopping cart of items. How do you respond?

  • Putting faith in God will not prove disappointing

    I recently watched an episode of “Our America with Lisa Ling” about a faith healing ministry in Fort Mill, S.C.

    Ling, a television journalist, took a camera crew to document the very Pentecostal healing meetings to which hundreds of people came, some traveling hundreds of miles.

    Two sisters came with their mother who had terminal cancer, as did Steve, a man in a wheelchair, paralyzed from the waist down.
