Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Take the time to be grateful

The month of November seems to inadvertently call attention to the grateful gauge in one's heart. How's the gratitude attitude in your home? Take time this month - during family mealtime, while riding in the car, just before bedtime, while cooking dinner, while doing chores - to share blessings aloud. Talk about small blessings, huge ones and everything in between. Be sure to point out personal blessings, but talk about the good fortune of others in your circle of friends and family. Teach your kids to be thankful for others' blessings, also. Count your blessings so often this month that ...

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Entertain with ease this holiday season

It's officially holiday season, and if you're like me, visions of green bean casserole, sweet potato soufflé and pumpkin pie have been dancing in your head. This time of year, I'm always itching to entertain - I spend my spare time planning what to bake and take to Thanksgiving dinner, and conjuring up a few seasonal parties of my own.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Don't make parents' issues your own

I was standing in the lobby of an auditorium in which I'd just spoken, talking with a small group of attendees, when a 30-something woman took me aside and told me that her parents were bad role models. One was verbally abusive; the other, distant and emotionally unavailable.

On the edge

The late afternoon sun made my shadow long and narrow. It stretched out in front of me like a plumb line. I had brought with me no book, no iPod, nothing to mute the sound of my shoes crunching like cereal on the dirt that just the day before had been mud.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: It's a need-to-know, when-to-know thing with your children

Q: My son just turned 5 and is starting to ask various questions about parents including why some people have two parents and he only has one. About two months before he turned 2, his "donor" said he wasn't "feeling it" (his exact words) with him and didn't want to participate in his life anymore. How can I explain that to my son? My son has no recollection of this person, but his parents still visit and take him places as do two other members of his "dad's" family. I am really at a loss or how ...

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: On the move

For most people, the post-retirement stage of life now lasts for decades. Even those who "hang it up" in their 70s may live another 10-20 years. Many who work in organizations that offer earlier retirement can and do choose to move on after 20-30 years. Preparation for retirement involves two major issues. The first is financial security. The other has to do with activity and location.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Iced Pumpkin Cookies tantalize the senses

Isn't it funny how powerful our senses can be? My family takes a trip to the Tennessee mountains every fall and you can't drive very far up there without seeing a pancake house. The smell alone puts me in a good mood. On a cool mountain morning, who can pass up the scent of crispy bacon, cane syrup and stacks of buttery, fluffy and warm silver dollar pancakes?
