Let me introduce you to MostlySensible’s contributors.  Because my thoughts and ideas are only mostly sensible, I need a little help now and again to bring the most to our sensibilities.  Until our sensibilities are perfect in heaven we will only hope to be mostly sensible here on earth.  In this life, our understanding and intellect are corrupted by sin in this world, but God has promised to those who believe that He would help us through his Word and...

I try to avoid going to the store with all four kids, but sometimes I have to.  Maybe we’re out of diapers and I can’t wait until hubby comes home so he can watch the kids.  It’s a big production to get myself and four kids ready to leave the house for an entire morning, because it takes all morning to go to just one store!  At ages 5, 3, 2, and 1 they can’t get ready by themselves, so a minimum of a half hour before leaving I start the process of potty trips, diaper changes, finding socks &...

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,...

For each doctrine we give a brief but direct statement of what we understand the Bible to abundantly teach in that area. Verses are included for reference and are not intended to be exhaustive but exemplary of the Bible’s teaching.   Section...

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, and divisions in...
