Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: It's not wise to let it 'all' hang out

The problem in American parenting is the 1960s. Among other things that defined that very interesting (ref. ancient Chinese curse) decade was the replacement of rationality by emotionality. It was during the 1960s that the media, various self-appointed spiritual gurus, and the mental health professional community urged people to "get in touch with their feelings." And it was during the 1960s that parents were told by mental health professionals that children had a right to express their feelings freely.

Standing in line

The first time I can remember standing in line was at the milk dispenser in the lunchroom at Mattie Lively Elementary School. I didn't like milk. I was not made to drink it at home. But in the lunchroom at Mattie Lively, there was no other option.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Sunday Supper -- Herb roasted chicken

The warm climate we experience in Southeast Georgia often leaves cold temperatures few and far between. It's only February and already, I've had my first beach day of 2017. On the days when the cooler temperatures do decide to come our way, there's one recipe that I turn to again and again: Herb Roasted Chicken in my cast iron skillet. A meal steaming hot and full of flavor, it cooks all at once in one dish. Clean-up is easy, and the flavors are so earthy, warm and soul-satisfying.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: The changing face of death

Death and dying, event and process, have always generated personal problems, the physical and emotional agonies of grief. Witness the biblical accounts of David's sorrow at the deaths of King Saul and his son, Jonathan, of his son with Bathsheba and his son, Absalom. Some of the works of the greatest authors in English literature (Shakespeare, Milton, Poe, Frost and many others) cry out in grief.

She's the little sister to three older sisters and big sister to one brother. To fill their shoes would be huge task, but Sharma Lewis had her own footwear and walked her own path to make history when she was elected by the North Georgia Conference as the first African-American female to lead the delegation to the 2012 General and Jurisdictional Conferences.

And the winner: Starting over

The fields surrounding Sandhill are naked. Along the edges of the yard, where a fence would be if I were a fence sort of person, the tractor tires have made loops like rainbows or rick-rack and I have to be careful as I make my nightly rounds not to stumble.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Best interests of child is paramount

Q: Our 14-year-old son, who was adopted by open adoption, now wants to go live with his birth mother. She was completely out of the picture until a couple of years ago when she suddenly showed up, telling us that she'd completely changed her life and wanted to re-establish contact with "her" son. At first, it was just phone calls. Then she asked for daytime visits, then overnights. Then he wanted to go on vacation with her last summer. In the meantime, he's become more and more difficult to live with - moody and disrespectful, mostly, and his grades ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: There are things God wants us to know about him

There is a lot of skepticism about God today. I suppose this has almost always been true. Atheism, agnosticism and pessimism ("Where is God when bad things happen?") all express denial, doubt and disappointment about even the idea of God.
