Black History Month

I came to know about "Blind Willie" McTell late in my life - about 11 years ago when I was working on Del Presley's "A Place to Call Home" at the brand new Emma Kelly Theater.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Celebrate the "love month"

Seems a little unreasonable that the month of February, the one that touts hearts and love and sweethearts and chocolate, is the shortest month on the calendar. But, that just means extra care and attention must be given each day to those we love. Warm up the days in February with time spent with family - bundle up and go for long walks, roast marshmallows, read books under the covers or gather in the kitchen and prepare a big pot of soup. Make every day a celebration with unique ideas or try some of the holidays below.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: These parents may need some therapy

My column of a few weeks back in which I described real-life parenting scenarios that qualified the parents in question for a diagnosis of "just plain nuts" was a big hit. Since it ran, readers have sent me numerous examples of parents who indeed seem to qualify as JPN and be in need, therefore, of You Ought to be Ashamed of Yourself Therapy.

Singing songs of the good news

About four years ago, comedian Steve Martin, who is also one great banjo player, wrote an interesting piece of music, "Atheists don't have no songs." Yes, I know that's a double negative. According to Martin, their hymnbook is only one page and if the name of God is there, it's spelled with a lower case "g." Go figure.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Depend on God's help to overcome trials and sins

Randy Becton is an inspiring Christian writer and speaker who lives in Texas. In a small collection of Christian lifestyle essays entitled "Chosen Path," he has included an article on God's victory over our weakness and failure. Here's a brief excerpt:

Kathy Bradley: Off-road and cross country

From inside the house I can hear both sets of wind chimes clanging, harmonizing from opposite eaves, dancing madly like Russian Cossacks. The sun is high and the light is white. There is no good reason, no reason to stay inside.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Give “special tantrums” a “special place”

Q: How do you stop tantrums in a 3-year-old? My daughter never went through the "terrible twos" but began throwing wild tantrums shortly after her third birthday. This coincided with the birth of a sibling - a boy - but she's very affectionate and helpful toward him, so I don't know if there's any connection. I've tried everything I can think of to prevent and stop the tantrums - things I've seen recommended in various places - but nothing has worked. She throws one whenever she doesn't get her way. Help!

Only one path to the true God

"All men, by different paths, seek the same God." Years ago, when I first heard this phrase, I thought it sounded pretty plausible, intelligent and seemed to have a ring of inclusion for those trying to make sense out of the many religions in this old world of ours. I don't think it does. I'll get to this in a few minutes.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Cut stress and drop parenting magazines

Proposed: The primary reason so many of today's mothers are so very stressed by child rearing - something their grandmothers, for the most part, approached fairly nonchalantly - is because they do something their grandmothers did not do: they read parenting columns, magazines, and books. And yes, I'm well aware of the irony here.

Dealing with the enemies of Israel

It has taken me three days to sit in front of my computer and start this article. The difficulty began when I sat down at my desk and glanced over at my open Bible. I don't even remember turning to Isaiah, but what was really disturbing was that I was staring at chapter 34 and I began to read, "Draw near, O nations, to hear, and listen, O peoples! For the Lord is angry with His enemies, furious, and has doomed them ... the mountains will flow with their blood. For the Lord has a day of vengeance on behalf ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Why teen mental health has worsened

In the 1960s, child and teen mental health and behavior problems began an alarming rise that has continued to the present. In 1970, one of my grad school professors proposed that this trend could be explained with the flight-or-fight principle (i.e. in response to perceived threat, a person is inclined to either flee or stand and fight).

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: March is a month of merriment

With the rainbow of colors on recent weather maps and the shuttered doors of schools just hours north of here, it's difficult to imagine that March pledges shamrocks and springtime. But promise it does, at least on the calendar. Watch for leprechauns, greenery and Irish dances the first part of the month and delight in the early spring offerings toward the end. Look for every shade of green imaginable when new buds and fresh leaves make their appearances after a long winter's nap. Enjoy the hues and colors of springtime with lawns that awaken and trees and flowers ...

Kathy Bradley: A pocketful of pennies

It has become an annual trip. A pilgrimage. And though we don't remove our shoes or crawl on our knees or touch our foreheads to the ground, we probably should. The spot is that sacred.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Son's anxiety caused by panic attacks

Q: My 13-year-old son has developed overwhelming anxiety about going to school. This began a year ago, but has gotten steadily worse since then. At this point he fights me every morning about going to school, and even if I can persuade him to get in the car, he won't get out. If I try to force him, he becomes nearly hysterical. I'm a stay-at-home mom, so there have been many days this year when I've simply taken him back home. His principal and everyone at the school say he's fine once he's in the ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Custody battles should prioritize kids

Equality under the law is a uniquely American principle, one that no freedom-loving person would oppose, but the manner in which said principle is currently applied to the issue of child custody treats children as property - like pieces of furniture or bank accounts - rather than human beings with rights of their own, including the right to stable living conditions.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk: So long, Statesboro; hello, Lowcountry

Sometimes you have to embrace a place before you can move on. I remember the moment I chose to embrace Statesboro. It was during a solo lunch at McAlister's Deli. No one here was writing about food, at least not in our hometown newspaper. I saw a need to highlight the local restaurants in our city, to draw positive attention to the chefs and restaurant owners and to help promote our outstanding farming community. I reached out and pitched my idea to the Statesboro Herald, and thankfully they agreed.
