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.

Change can be a good thing

It's Monday, January 12th, and the first day of classes here at old East Georgia State College. I've been preparing for today since the last semester ended about a month ago. I keep re-reading my old notes to find out if I had left anything out, need to emphasize this point or that section and just wanting to make the course better. I have come to the conclusion that the course has been revamped to the max and if anything needs to be fixed or improved, it's got to be me. It's got to be me ...

Lead rational thought with understanding of God's will

Human beings are creatures of rational thought and ideas. We are able to plan, and follow those plans, because of our ability to think concretely. Just over 50 years ago, university professor Dallas Willard said that "we live at the mercy of our ideas" ("Hearing God: Developing a Conversational Relationship with God," 1963). A few examples from the pages of Scripture showing the practical application of this statement might be helpful to us in understanding his meaning.

Five easy steps for teaching obedience

Who are the happier campers in a workplace setting: the employees who (a) obey the rules, follow the procedures and voice any complaints respectfully so that the entire workplace is not disrupted, or (b) disobey the rules at every possible opportunity, deliberately fail to follow procedures and disrupt the workplace with frequent and often subversive complaints?

Kathy Bradley: Cemeteries, camellias and cold

It may have been the trees, soaring and spreading and stretching up into the sky and down into the earth. It may have been the words, carved into stone in letters thick and straight, their assertion of permanence both ironic and inspiring. It may have been the silence or the stillness or the statuary that captivated me, that made the cemetery at Christ Church on St. Simons one of my favorite places. I don't remember and I can't say that I ever knew for certain, but on that day the thing that grabbed me and held me was ...

The myth of the terrible teen years

Q: Our son is going to be 13 next year and we're trying to be proactive about the coming storm. He's been a good kid and relatively easy to raise to this point, but we've heard the horror stories and dread what may be around the corner. Do you have any tips?

Kathy Bradley: Counting the ways...And counting what matters

Just past the shed, along what would be a fencerow - if there was a fence - the field lies flat and even. Not like a pane of glass, but like a table covered in a cloth smoothed by hands smelling of dish soap and lotion, with vague and uneven undulations that beg to be smoothed. Cut over and harrowed, it holds no sign of what grew there last year or the year before, or the decades of years before.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: What does God look like? Jesus Christ

There is a lot of skepticism about God today - as there has almost always been. Whether from atheists who deny God's existence, agnostics who aren't sure about the existence of God; or pessimists who doubt God's nature, who ask questions such as, "Where is God when bad things happen?" or, "Why does God allow evil?" These are not unusual ideas or questions, and honest questioners deserve an honest response.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Let's get dressed for heaven

The Holy Spirit seems to have loved the use of analogy in inspiring the teachers and writers of Scripture. In the New Testament, the marriage union is used to represent the relationship between Jesus and his people. The Bible's applications of this parallel can help us prepare for the coming of Christ. If we want to be followers of Christ, we need to understand that "the Way" of Christ involves a change of our nature and a change of relationship to sin.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Facts must trump parents' 'feelings'

One of the signs of these confused and confusing times we live in is that facts don't matter. What matters are feelings and opinions, which are often confused and confusing. According to another author friend, this is the primary feature of post-post-modernity.

Consumer Q's: Pet obesity and winter-resilient aloe varieties

Question: I just heard a news story that many dogs and cats are overweight, but the owner doesn't realize it. Is this true? I have a big breed of dog, and I think he is just naturally large.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Parenting books can stress moms out

I've asked the men in several recent audiences to raise hands if they believe moms stress out concerning their children at least five times more than dads. All the men's hands went up to general laughter.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: April showers bring the treasures of springtime

The month of April showers the observant one with a magnificent display of colors, from the fragrant wisteria blossoms creeping through the boughs of trees to the willowy stems of bright-yellow Jessamine, to the snowbells bowing their heads and wild azaleas bursting forth. Seemingly every shade of green imaginable puts on a show just for the month of April before fading and dulling as summer approaches. New life springs forth: buds and blossoms, chicks and bunnies, an empty tomb and the Resurrection.

Kathy Bradley: People, like books, must be opened to be understood

Like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, his shoulder fits into the hollow of my side and the loop of my arm conforms to the back of his neck. Exactly. Perfectly. I have to tilt my chin only slightly to rest it on the blonde head, to draw in the scent of little boy. One chair, two of us.
