Here’s a good example of a great article that I saw on the internet.  “Parenting Your Strong-Willed Child” by Dr. Laura Marham.  There are a lot of good articles on parenting, ones in which there are a lot of great tips that we can glean and learn from.  As far as I can tell, Dr. Markham is not a Christian, though, and her psychology is not biblically based.  So how does a Christian read a good article like this?  Basically,...

Faith Pulpit Article I thoroughly enjoyed reading this article which was recommended to me by my husband who attended Faith Pulpit Days at Faith Baptist Bible College & Theological Seminary.  I so enjoyed Dr. Doug Brown’s evaluation of the Family Integrated Church Movement which is becoming popular in many conservative fundamental Baptist churches.  I have witnessed some of these FICM values played out in churches that I know, and most often with a divisive outcome; division in good Bible-believing churches,...

I’ve so enjoyed reading my Aunt Debbie’s blog, “A Well Watered Garden.”  This post features my grandpa and his garden.  He inspired her to become a Master Gardener.   Peter Slobodian was a farmer at heart, and even when he brought his family from Argentina to the United States in 1957 answering the Lord’s call on his life to preach the gospel, he never lost his desire to grow and cultivate a garden.

Thank you to everyone who commented and sent me notes and messages on my last article, “A Pro-Vaccine Point of View.”  I would like to address the issues that were raised from those comments in an effort to give an answer to all aspects of this controversial topic, especially since I know that some do not read all of the comments nor do they...

Don’t forget my popular follow-up article >>> Buckle up for a Mostly Sensible opinion of the Vaccine Wars.  There are really few debates out there that have caused such an uproar and influenced decisions about such a personal part of our lives, namely, our children.  There is so much to weed through in this debate of whether ‘To Vaccinate, or Not To Vaccinate’ your children.  Since the Pro-Vaccine Movement seems to have gotten behind the Anti-Vaccine Movement in spreading their side of the issue...
