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?

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Child rearing has gone 'off the rails'

I am sometimes asked if I think the "parenting pendulum" is swinging back, however slowly, toward where it was 60-plus years ago or at least toward a tolerable middle point.

A snail, some vines and a feather

Scene 1: A snail shell sits still and alone on the concrete of the carport at Sandhill. It is about an inch-and-a-half long, the color of coffee diluted with lots of milk, with the slightest sheen. I don't remember the last time I've seen one. I am entranced.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: How to live successfully and live to please God

Every sincere Christian wants to live to please God. It can be difficult in a world plagued by temptation, doubt, fear. But the Bible gives instruction on how to live successfully for Christ. For example, people in the Bible, although human, are powerful examples for us. Consider the lives of men and women such as Noah, Moses, Joseph, Deborah, David, Mary, Peter, John, Paul and many others. Hebrews 11 makes the point more clearly than I am able.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Don't subject child to unnecessary pain

Q: After two years of chemotherapy for acute lymphocytic leukemia, our 6-year-old daughter is now in remission. We've recently noticed she has difficulty focusing and staying on task. Otherwise, she is bright, happy and well-behaved. Her physician told us that chemotherapy involves neurotoxins that can cause focusing issues in children. He referred us to a neuropsychiatrist who administered a five-hour battery of tests, diagnosed ADD and prescribed an ADD drug. After reading you for years, I don't believe that an "illness" called ADD truly exists. But is chemotherapy-induced ADD a valid thing and if so, what do you ...

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: All that glitters

The world of personal finance abounds with wise words that often are ignored by people who should be wiser. "All that glitters is not gold." "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is not true." "Pay attention to what they are not saying." "Be sure to read the fine print." "Let the buyer beware."

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Offering help to each other

Christian brotherhood is a wonderful, yet complex bond between individuals saved by grace, and in continual need of spiritual help from God to live faithfully in a world devastated by sin. Our common heritage as God's children makes it possible for us to enable one another, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to be victorious over Satan and his forces. This is why Christians in the Roman province of Galatia were instructed by Paul to "Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ" (Galatians 6:2).

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Dinner on the grounds is like coming home

On the first Sunday of October at noon every year, my family shares the time-honored tradition of attending homecoming and dinner on the grounds at Richland Baptist Church, known fondly to the locals as "Old Richland." Since the 1800s, family and friends have gathered among the Middle Georgia pines of Twiggs County to worship and fellowship. With a nip in the air, this year was no exception. The service is reverent, the food is plentiful and the people are like coming home.
