Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy - Teach children Biblical principles

Almost everyone agrees that the example parents set for their children is of paramount importance. Unless we model the standards we desire for our children, it isn't likely they will value or follow them very closely.

Bulloch will keep high standards

If you are paying attention to the debate over the Common Core State Standards, you've probably thought, "let's wait and see what happens and go from there."

What if it rains on your vacation?

I remember when Julie told me about an incident which took place in one of her classes at Marshall. Someone in class mentioned, "Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning; red sky at night, sailor's delight." Julie said, "That's in the Bible."

Our View: Don't abandon Common Core

After approval last week by the Georgia Senate of a bill that would abandon the Common Core State Standards the state first adopted in 2010, state House members are now getting set to debate the bill that, if signed into law by Gov. Nathan Deal, would do serious harm to the public school education of children in our state.

It really does take 'a village'

There is an old proverb, "It takes a village to raise a child," which is as true today as when this saying was documented. Dr. Calvin Mackie, in his book, "A View From The Roof," writes about five gifts to give your children: the gift of love, the gift of affection and touch, the gift of discipline, the gift of integrity and the gift of purpose.

We are all part of God's plan

I happened to turn on the old TV to a movie entitled, "Bruce Almighty." Here's a young man in his 30s who seems to be the typical loser individual: less qualified folks get promoted over him; he can't keep a girlfriend; his dog doesn't know the difference between a fire hydrant and his favorite chair; nothing ever seems to work out and God obviously doesn't like him; he doesn't like God, and if he were God, the world would be so much better off.

Writing our own memorials

Last Friday, I said goodbye to Marty Hager for the last time. Julie and I sat on the front row of the church along with the rest of our family to let the reality of his death squeeze through the denial everyone faces at times like these.

Are there self-fulfilling prophecies?

When our family finally got settled in at my first church in Florida, I received a call to visit a young man recently incarcerated for auto theft. Back then, I could sit in a crowded room with him and a lot of other visitors and prisoners trying to communicate by almost shouting over the crowd noise. I asked him, "What happened?"

Turning to the channel of life

I was listening to good old 91.1, the public radio station, and heard about something I found hard to believe. Hold that thought for just a minute. Trying to find a decent show on television can be a heartbreaker at times. There are so many of those so-called reality shows on these days and I have a very difficult time wondering why anyone would watch them.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Arguing is no fun for parents or children

I absolutely love it when people begin to realize that the problems they're having with a child are of their own making; when they begin to realize, in other words, that the child is not the problem - they are! All this time (however long that might be), they've been trying to correct the wrong person - the child - getting nowhere and becoming nothing but frustrated in the process. Instead, they need to correct themselves, and it goes without saying that correcting one's self is much, much easier than trying to correct someone else.

Column: What about the children?

They are hungry and frightened, but the fear of the unknown isn't nearly as bad as the fear of the known.

The importance of education

It's that time of the year when the school system, from elementary to university level, start the prayers, organize the planning, order the books and stand back for the onrush of hopefully eager and determined students who will learn everything possible in preparation for the day of days! That day of days is when students get a full-time job, move out of the house and begin sending a portion of their vast earnings to good old mom and dad who will spend the rest of their days in frivolity and relaxation.
