High water, tender mercies

The rain lasted long enough to move the sky from dusk to hard dark, to leave the grass glistening, to flatten the ant hills out by the mailbox. Long enough for me to notice when the sound reduced itself to the monotonic drip, drip, drip from the eaves and the cones streaming from the floodlights on the corners of the house went from pale and thick to bright and golden. Just long enough to make the night an invitation.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Time to re-educate child and parent

Q: I have taught my 4-year-old son that he is the boss. I have given him too many choices and too many explanations. I've allowed him to manipulate, disobey and disrespect me. Ever since I began devouring your podcasts and newspaper columns, however, my eyes have been opened. It's been a few weeks since I started putting your old-school principles into practice and I've made some progress, but I'm still getting into lots of power struggles. After four years of not being the boss, how do I now turn this ship around? I'm finding that ...

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Humanity is not negotiable

"If we are following Christ literally, then nobody's humanity is up for grabs. Nobody. This is nonnegotiable." --The Rev. Jen Hatmaker, Time magazine, August 28, 2017, page 60. However, the following definitions show that dehumanization is as current as it is ages old.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Laborless fruit-filled desserts for Labor Day

Labor Day is upon us, and if you're like me, you're already considering a work-free way to celebrate. On a holiday that honors the American labor movement and the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our great nation, it sure is nice to take comfort in a little rest and relaxation.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Let your kid admit his own guilt

Q: A few months after he got his driver's license, we found a bag of marijuana in our 16-year-old son's car. He swore it wasn't his and that he didn't know whose it was and that he's never used pot, but then he failed to pass a drug test. Now he admits that he's smoked pot, but he says he only tried it once and didn't like it. He still maintains that the pot we found in the glove box of his car belonged to someone else, but he still maintains that he ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Be persistent in seeking Jesus' healing touch

Twin girls, only a few hours old, were lying in their individual hospital incubators. Something was terribly wrong with one of them, and she wasn't expected to live. A nurse placed the babies together in one incubator. The healthy baby threw an arm over her sister's upper torso, either intentionally or by chance. The smaller baby's heart rate stabilized and her temperature rose to normal. Some said, "That's astonishing!"

Connection all humans have

I am 4 or 5 years old. My arms are curled tightly around my father's neck. His arms are wrapped around my waist. We are standing in the Ogeechee River, wide and dark, brown as coffee. The trees that grow along its banks are tall and heavy with branches that dangle over the river, dripping Spanish moss. On the sandbar just a few yards away, my family - aunts and uncles and cousins, grandparents, my mother, my brother - move around in a cone of sunshine, a spotlight cutting through the canopy of cypress and pine and scrub oak.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: No smartphone, no need to police it

When I was a child, a popular comic strip was "There Oughta Be a Law." It ran in the paper that came to our doorstep every morning and was one of the first things I went to when it was my turn to get ink all over my fingers. I later realized that at one level the cartoonist was satirizing people who hold to great faith in the ability of government to solve all manner of social problems.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Food columnist launches new YouTube channel

If you've read my food column or followed my blog for any length of time, you know that one of my dreams is to host my own cooking show on a national television network. I've often written about it, sharing my close calls, like that time I was cast as a contestant on ABC TV's "The Taste," a cooking competition reality show. My brief video appearance on The Dr. Oz Show was fun too, when producers found my food blog and asked me to represent Georgia in Dr. Oz's Nationwide Healthy Recipe Challenge with a healthy ...

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Not an app for everything

Will Rogers - unique humorist, cowboy philosopher and gentle gadfly - typically began his monologues with "All I know is what I read in the newspapers..." Given current criticism of newspapers, those words might draw a cynical laugh now. As a working journalist in the past, I still put great stock in newspapers as reliable sources of information, but not so much in supermarket tabloids or cable news outlets with their revenue-generating talking heads.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Purchase 'stupid' for teen's first car

Adam Nickel thinks his teenage daughter, who's already hit three solid objects with her car -thankfully, no humans or other moving vehicles included - would do better with a car that comes equipped with blind-spot/lane-change alert (notifies driver when another vehicle is approaching on either side), lane assist (gently guides car, if it begins to drift, back into proper lane), backup camera display, backup alerts, pedestrian sensor, automatic braking, and a radio that won't come on unless everyone is buckled in. Said auto also has a computer program that monitors a teen driver's performance, and can be ...

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: August adventures with the family

Is it an age thing? Global warming? The newest technological advances and inventions that are supposed to give us extra minutes in the day? Something unexplainable contributes to the lazy days of summer speeding by faster and faster every year. It's just unfathomable that kids are back in school and college students follow suit shortly thereafter.
