On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: The darndest things

Art Linkletter, a popular television personality decades ago, hosted a show entitled, "Kids Say the Darndest Things." It was built around things children said while talking with him. Grieving people also say, do and experience unusual things in response to their loss and pain.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: We must give Jesus first place in our lives

In the first chapter of Paul's letter to the Colossians, the apostle presents Jesus as supreme over everything and everyone; he is the all-sufficient Christ, that is, God's "anointed one," sent to be the savior of the world. This opening section of Paul's letter to the church at Colossae contains some of the highest, most sublime language ever written!

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Parents must not try to reason with kid

Q: Our 18-year-old daughter is a month away from high school graduation and she is failing nearly every class! About six months ago, she took up with a group of young adults who are less than desirable, to say the least. Some of them are dropouts. I suspect drugs and alcohol. The more we tried to prevent her from running with this lowly bunch, the more rebellious she became. Finally, in desperation, we took her car and her smart phone away and told her she can't have them back until she possesses a high school diploma. If she fails ...

Trimming the tree

The holly trees have stood at either end of the porch for nearly 15 years. They arrived in black plastic buckets, stubby and unimpressive, veritable runts compared to the proud sentinels they grew to be. I remember the delight with which I cut the first berry-bearing branches, so proud to be able to walk out the front door and gather from them my own Christmas decorations.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: No good grief

"Good grief" used to be a favorite exclamation of Charlie Brown, the unlucky main character in the Peanuts cartoon. Perhaps he has learned what many people know. There is no such thing as good grief. Different people experience grief in different ways, but no one enjoys it.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: For all you've done, thank you Mama

As Mother's Day approaches this year, I'd like to tell you a little bit about the lady I call Mama. A strong-willed and feisty God-fearing woman about 5'4" with a small frame and wavy, rich brown hair, she loves a gadget, can't swim and watches the Home Shopping Network and QVC with pure wonderment. To hear my dad tell it, the UPS man knows her by name.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: ADHD still not proven biologically

I fully expected my recent column on ADHD - in which I expanded upon noted Harvard psychologist (emeritus) Jerome Kagan's contention that it is an "invention"-to stir the pot. Kagan said what I've been saying in this column and everywhere the opportunity has provided for more than 25 years. During that time, psychologists and psychiatrists have responded with vitriol and even threat, but when I have invited them to debate me, on their turf, at my expense, they have - to a person - become silent.
