Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: You can overcome the blues

Many behavioral experts say it is perfectly normal to get the "blues" occasionally. The causes of depression are likely far more numerous than most know. Its seriousness varies greatly. Some Christians believe that no one who trusts God will ever be depressed, but that's not necessarily the case.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Spring: Strawberries and market season

Happy spring! We have survived the dreary days of winter and I couldn't be happier to welcome the sunshine, watch the azaleas reveal their colors and see the earth bloom back to life. I've always loved this season and I may be a little biased. My birthday is in April, the Masters golf tournament returns to my hometown of Augusta, and my family and I keep I-95 South hot with trips to my favorite vacation destination: St. Simons Island in the beautiful Golden Isles of Georgia.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Times have changed; basic tenets of parenting have not

Q: You seem to blame all of America's parenting woes on mental health professionals and imply that if parents still raised kids as did people in the 1950s and before, they wouldn't be having the problems they're having today.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Live full life in full view of your kids

Once again, a reader proves that parenting must be added to religion and politics as verboten subjects for polite conversation. A column I published back in December 2016 went viral recently - yes, three months later (such things are mysteries to me). In it, I proposed that parents, not children, are the most important people in a family and that the husband-wife relationship, not the parent-child relationship, should be first and foremost.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Suddenly, it's spring

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Have a sweet St. Pat's Day with cookies

It's that infamous time of year in the Hostess City when everyone, no matter who your people are, becomes Irish for a day. Since I met and married a bonafide Savannahian, my life has never been the same. On March 17, each year, come rain or shine, we will don our green and orange, raise our glasses, pack our picnic baskets, and join the hundreds of thousands of others in the Spanish moss-covered oak tree city of Savannah, Georgia.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Mother was mostly right this time

Q: My 30-month-old has started throwing tantrums when I do not give her or do for her what she wants. During her fits, she cries, screams, tries to hit and even bite me, and then, if I prevent her from hitting me, will hit herself. My mother says this needs to be nipped in the bud. She recommends spanking. I say my daughter really doesn't know what she's doing and is too young to be disciplined for this. I'm also concerned about her self-hitting. What do you say?
