Recently, Dave and I made a retirement-altering decision regarding one of our grandsons. After learning that he has made it all the way through 5th grade without knowing his multiplication table, how to divide, basic parts of speech, etc., we have decided we will home school him for a year with the prayer for bringing
For 41 years — nearly two-thirds of our lives — Dave and I have been married. When we began our marriage in our early 20’s, we made some important decisions: 1) God would always be the head of our marriage, and the center, as well; 2) the word “commitment” would be real in our
Parents, do NOT let other people guilt you into being “their” kind of parent. I had a neighbor once whose son was in his playroom and dropped his glass of milk. When he tried to pick it up, he cut his palm. This precious mother was so guilt-ridden over what other parents would think of

There are wolves in sheep’s clothing out there–knowing the Word will help us to avoid being taken in by them.
Thank God for His Word.
