Always room for Jell-O, metaphor

Mama didn't buy Jell-O. Not even to adorn with a can of fruit cocktail and call it salad. The only time Keith and I got Jell-O was at school, cut into a square and plopped into a perfectly sized compartment on one of those indestructible oblong trays.

GSU students to gather for prayer walk

On a hot summer day in August 2016, Georgia Southern University students gathered on a small street with a questionable reputation. Instead of the usual loud music, parties and alcohol, these student members of the Greek community on the campus gathered on Greek Row for something a bit different - and some called it a "tiny glimpse of heaven."

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Toe the line in potty training toddler

Q: Our twin girls will be three in a few months. Our pediatrician recommended that we start toilet training at 32 months, which we did. After several months and lots of gnashing of teeth, one of the girls finally got it. The other one, however, seems completely oblivious to our efforts. This has become very frustrating for us and I'm afraid we're showing some anger at this point. The pediatrician says we should put her back in diapers until she's three and then start over. What do you think?

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Security?

Thomas Wolfe was right. These days are lit by lightning and nothing is changing faster than the economy. Seniors are seeing economic patterns that have served them well shifting, with even greater changes either certain or possible.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Rescue the boys so they will be men

Have you ever heard of an addict who was cured of his or her addiction because someone limited, but did not eliminate, their access to the substance or behavior in question? No, you have not. Is an addiction to gambling less harmful if the addict is only allowed to gamble five hours a week? No, it is not. The proposition is absurd.

I walk the line

The first day it rained. The second day it rained. The third day the sun came out, slowly and sheepishly, as though embarrassed by her failure to perform earlier in the week. The beach swelled with people, families mostly, and the toys of various sizes and costs without which the vacationers would have had to notice the ocean or, worse, engage in conversation.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: God will cleanse us from sin

When I was growing up, I occasionally helped my mother - yes, at her insistence - by washing the dishes, pots and pans after a meal. I must admit that sometimes I completed the job just in time for the family to sit down for the next meal. I also confess a less than perfect effort at cleaning the food off the dishes, since I usually didn't really want to do it anyway! I still don't really care for the task, though I do it occasionally. It's not quite the job today as it was earlier; about all that ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Excess can lead to bad behavior

Q: We've just been informed that our 7-year-old son has been effectively "expelled" from the private school he attended last year because of repeated instances of stealing small items from classmates and, on one occasion, from the teacher's desk. We're rather shocked because our son was the highest-performing student in his first grade class and the school's administration promised to work with us concerning the problem. Through the school year, he stole at least 20 items from other children, things like pencils, pencil sharpeners, and several of these new toys called "spinners." He's an only ...

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Poolside picnic is perfection

As much as I enjoy cooking, there are those days when the last thing I want to do is heat up the oven, especially during Georgia summers. There's something about the hot temperatures that zap the energy right out of you, and anyway, summertime is the season to slow down and take it easy. Nothing supports that line of logic more than a carefree picnic. Today I'll share some simple and Some Kinda Good ideas to pack in a picnic basket. Whether you have your own swimming pool, or decide to take your picnic to the beach, the ...

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Troubled death, troubling grief

Suicide is a problem that will not go away. Indeed, it is growing and is undercounted because some suicides are made to look like accidents and suicidal lifestyles kill others. News reports focus on the young - people in their teens and early 20s. However, the number of suicides among older men is also rising. At every age, suicide is a matter of suffering and sorrow.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: A little 'Vitamin N' can go a long way

I call it "Vitamin N." It is the word children need to hear most, but it is currently the word children hear least. It is arguably the most character-building word in the English language, but then helping children achieve great things (or creating the illusion that they are achieving great things) has eclipsed helping children build strong character. That is unfortunate indeed because high achievement alone does not produce solid character, but a person with solid character will always do his or her best.

Tell them the stories

Second grade was the year I asked for and got a stuffed French poodle for Christmas. I named her Fifi. She had thick wire in her legs and could stand on my dresser by herself. It was the year that Mama made me a pink pin-wale corduroy dress for the Valentine's Day party at school. It had a Peter Pan collar and a high yoke with tiny pearl buttons down the front. It was the year that I added to my vocabulary the words college, scholarship and author and decided that those words were mine.
