Understanding Your Purpose and God’s Plan

According to Lifeway Research, 57% of Americans are seeking meaning and purpose in their lives. In the classic comic Peanuts, Charlie Brown visits Lucy’s “psychiatric” stand and asks for advice.

Effective Habits to Embrace in Parenting

There’s an old saying that if a hammer is the only tool you own, everything will look like a nail. That’s why a well-rounded toolbox also contains screwdrivers, pliers, and wrenches of all sizes. Each tool is designed to solve a specific problem. With that in mind, how many tools are in your parenting toolbox? There isn’t one tool to rule them all. Some moms and dads rely on the same emotion and parenting techniques for every situation – anger, overly strict rules, permissiveness, etc.
