Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: The official holiday countdown has begun

Christmas décor dazzled the horizon of most commercial entities months ago, but hopefully your family ignored the embellishments long enough to count your blessings while nibbling on turkey. However, now that the calendar has flipped over, revealing the last month of the year, it's full-speed ahead into all things Christmas. Just remember during the festivities this month to stop and smell the cocoa and cedars with those you love. Decorate the tree and snuggle on the couch with little ones to watch the lights blink. Mark items off the shopping list and celebrate by making homemade cookies with ...

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Jesus is supreme over all

In Paul's letter to the church at Colossae, a town in ancient "Asia Minor" (today's nation of Turkey), we learn that he didn't know these Christians personally, but only through their shared friends and acquaintances. The knowledge of their "love in the Spirit" had come from Epaphras, a native of Colossae and friend of Paul. In spite of the fact Paul didn't know them personally, he was very concerned about their spiritual growth as Christians (1:7-8).

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Long-term care, mounting dilemmas

It cannot be said that issues and problems faced by senior citizens are ignored. The November 27 issue of Time Magazine devotes 12 pages to immediate and growing problems with long-term care. The lead article in the November AARP Bulletin is on patient safety in nursing homes. There are so many issues that I will divide them into two columns for coverage.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: The morning meal: A weekend luxury

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, yet one I rarely get to enjoy. It's one of the reasons I love Saturdays so much. Throughout the work week, the morning meal is often relegated to grab-and-go items like cold Greek yogurt or a breakfast bar from a box. Saturdays though, are different. I relish in the weekends when I have the opportunity to catch a few extra z's and arise well-rested to a clean kitchen. It's then that I get the bacon sizzling in the pan, whip up some farm fresh eggs, butter the toast and ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Children must give, not receive, respect

I was fresh out of grad school when psychologists and other mental health types began recommending that when speaking to a child, an adult should squat down to eye level with said child. Supposedly, this submissive posture is a means of demonstrating respect for the child while, at the same time, avoiding any implication that the child must pay attention and obey because the adult is bigger.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Let's start catching people doing things right

In a discussion on effective parenting several years ago, a popular psychologist made the point that much of society is geared toward the correction of people's wrongdoing, rather than the encouragement of proper behavior. The truth of her comments is clear.

Gathering around the table

Confession: I set the table primarily for myself. The good dishes and the brass candlesticks and the tall tapers. The cloth napkins rolled and threaded into napkin holders. The broom sedge or cotton stalks or whatever I've foraged from the fields around the house staked into vases and pitchers and crocks.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: 'Sass-buckets' need not apply here

Q: Our 8-year-old has suddenly developed a very sassy mouth. She picked this up from a new neighborhood friend who speaks to her mother in a very disrespectful tone, like she's the girl's servant. There are no other girls this age in the neighborhood, so I hesitate to put a stop to the relationship but at the same time I want to nip this new skill in the bud before it becomes habit. Do you have any suggestions?

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Home — For them

"Home" is a word rich with meaning for many - perhaps most - of us seniors. It is rooted in a world that was typically small-town and rural before this country urbanized and its people became mobile in pursuit of careers or dreams of careers. The change since the middle of the 20th century is revolutionary in its impact, but "home" still has a hold on heads and hearts.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Classic autism not a mental disorder

Q: In the school district where I used to teach, I attended many meetings concerning children with special needs. Many of the kids in question were said to be "on the [autism] spectrum." In 15 years I witnessed the number of supposedly autistic children go from practically zero to enough to fill a special education class at almost every one of our 30-plus schools. A good number of these children were eventually mainstreamed into my class, and I felt then and even more strongly now that they were wrongly diagnosed. I can only think of two kids who in my ...
