Kathy Bradley - Into the woods

On Sunday, I went to the woods. To get there, I had to walk along the edge of a just-plowed field, soft and uneven. At the back of the pond the field slopes sharply toward a creek that runs just beyond the property line, and my shoes began sinking into not-quite-mud. I ran to keep from being sucked in up to my ankles, gauging the size of the deer who had come before me by how far its hooves had sunk into the muck. The ground got solid again at the fencerow, barbed wire and rusted. I held it down ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - God's one message to every man

Do you understand how amazing the Bible is? Do you appreciate what this book contains? In the publication of this "Books of books," God used about 40 different authors living on three continents over a period of approximately 1,500 years. These men used three different languages to compose 66 books that were eventually bound into one volume and translated into thousands of languages spoken by people virtually everywhere on earth. These facts alone make it a remarkable book and worthy of historical and literary study; but that which makes this book most extraordinary is the nature of its single ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Feed toddlers before everyone else sits down to eat

Q: Our 18 month old is a table terror! While I'm preparing dinner, she walks around acting like she's starving, but as soon as we sit her in her highchair, she takes a few bites and then wants down, screams, cries, and will sometimes throw food. Through all this, our 5- and 3-year-old try to talk to us but can't get a word in for all the chaos. We absolutely dread eating in a restaurant. How should we address her behavior?

Kathy Bradley - Color charts and playbills and living in the present

I've been paying attention, the last few mornings, to the sunrise. I've broken the waking-up routine that normally follows my abrupt coming to the surface of reality by getting out of bed and, before doing anything else, opening the blinds on one window. For three mornings in a row I've stood there in my nightgown, bare arms breaking out in a rash of chill bumps, and squinted at the first beams of daylight like a newborn pup.
