Bridge 3/6

I love the optimism of some bridge writers. Sentences like "it is surely not difficult" and "it is clearly obvious" trip off their computer keyboards.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Parents unwittingly pass anxiety to their kids

Since the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year, several elementary teachers have asked me why so many of today's kids come to school with anxiety issues. That's a good question, one that I think goes to the heart of contemporary American parenting.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: In the light or the dark: Where will you live?

A preaching friend I knew in south Mississippi about a hundred years ago recently wrote about his summer vacations at his "Granddaddy and Mamaw's" house and the "neat" experience of having to get drinking water via the hand pump and dipper at the well. I wrote him and told him I could remember similar experiences at my dad's family farm in Indiana. The biggest differences, I guess, were the lack of a pump on the well.
