Kathy Bradley - Seeing two in the sky, on land

The sky last night was a bolt of dark wash denim, the selvage hugging one horizon, the fold the other. And the stars, oh, so many stars, did not twinkle so much as glow, did not shine so much as radiate, radiate like ice crystals with a kind of negative energy. I lay on my back on the deck, the boards like extra ribs pushing into me at regular intervals, and stared up into the darkness interrupted only occasionally by airplanes so small they could have been fireflies.

Parenting advice with John Rosemond - Take control of sibling squabbles

Q: Our 7-year-old son and 32-month-old daughter squabble with each other constantly, mostly over taking and playing with each other's toys. The problem is our daughter, really. She will hit, scream, and throw things when she is angry. She wants to be in her brother's room, to do whatever he is doing, and he will not close his door. He's not rough with her, but we know he deliberately aggravates her. We have tried time outs and separating them. With this sort of age gap, is there some way of stopping the almost constant uproar?

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Human history's 2 biggest events

What do you think about when you consider Jesus' resurrection? Perhaps, like me, you most often reflect on his victory over death, and the fact that his victory makes it possible for us to win over death as well.

In the spirit with John Bressler - Don't just read - learn something, too

I happened to be listening to NPR the other day and a reporter quoted a teacher who said, "Up to the third grade, we teach children to learn to read. After that, we teach children to read to learn." I like that because it means that just because a child can read most anything phonetically and with pretty good comprehension, he or she can't ignore books from that day on. Barbara Freedman-De Vito writes: books help develop vital language skills, books open up new worlds, books enhance social sYls, books can improve hand-eye coordination, books really matter, books can ...

Inside Bulloch Business with Jan Moore - GSU's Chick-fil-A is rated tops in nation

I never cease to be amazed at the success achieved by Georgia Southern alumni in conjunction with the continued success of the university itself. A wonderful example of this is the pairing of this year's spring undergraduate commencement ceremony with the Chick-fil-A restaurant in the Russell Student Union building on campus.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Life and faith not always pain free

We can't really blame someone for trying, if possible, to avoid pain, can we? Most understand that sometimes pain is unavoidable; in some cases, it is both necessary and desirable. Consider that the nerves in our bodies, in part, are designed by the Creator to warn us of hazards such as extreme temperatures and sharp objects. Without the initial discomfort or non-lethal pain, we would likely meet an early and rather unpleasant demise.

What's on My Mind with Holli Deal Bragg - A lot more than just boots and a hat

Kathy Bradley - Scenes our senses capture

The wildfire had been burning for over a week. I expected to see evidence of it as I passed the green metal road sign that marked the Long County line and drove on down the highway lined with pine trees and wire grass, but I didn't.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Giving unto the Lord

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Take ADHD diagnoses with grain of salt

Q: Our 8-year-old is scheduled to enter third grade at a public school this coming fall. Last year, he did very well; nonetheless, his second grade teacher was convinced he had ADHD. At a meeting with the principal, school psychologist, school social worker and the head of the special education department, lots of pressure was put on us to have him tested and put on medication.

Kathy Bradley: Making and being made by memories

I know these colors so well. These pale and luminous colors of sand and sea and sky. These colors that melt and morph into each other and back again with the rise and fall of the tide, the climb of the moon, the set of the sun. These creamy whites and silvery grays. These liquid blues. I could drown in the colors and never stop breathing.

Three ways to fix a picky eater

Q: Our 4-year-old daughter will not eat dinner, no matter what. At most, she takes a few bites of what I fix and then says she doesn't like it. This has been going on for over a year.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Overcoming challenges and imitating Christ

The maxim "Imitation is the greatest form of flattery" was almost certainly coined when flattery was more highly thought of than it seems to be today. Yet, several popular versions of the Bible use a related term in 1 Corinthians 4:16, as in the ESV: "I urge you, then, be imitators of me."

Kathy Bradley: Bread, wine and blue

On the Fourth of July, I walk outside and hoist the flag and drive into town to the farmers market, where I buy three fat tomatoes from a man whose accent I can't quite place but whose tent smells fresh and green and whose tomatoes have just the right amount of mottling so that I can tell for certain they have been ripened to that perfect red firmness on the vine. Having found my Holy Grail, I wander around for a few more minutes and end up buying a cantaloupe for $3 from a little boy who is learning ...

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Minor consequences can cause major problems

One of the most common of complaints from today's parents is "we've tried everything." They refer, of course, to having tried numerous approaches to various long-standing behavior problems, all with no success. In many cases, the problems in question have worsened, as if they have developed resistance over time to any and all forms of discipline.

Enough hate to go around

Lately I've been reminded of Aretha Franklin's song, "R.E.S.P.E.C.T.," but it seems that some folk don't want to find out what it means.
