A refreshing book! So many ladies’ books dwell too much on our need to feel good about our position in Christ, but they let us off the hook when it comes to personal holiness in a sinful world.  Not so here.  Elisabeth Elliot is known most widely for her marriage to martyred missionary, Jim Elliot.  I find in her many books that Elisabeth Elliot...

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.

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...
