Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Jesus: He comes to make his blessings flow

The sin of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden brought a curse on not only men and women, but on nature itself.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Discipline: Nothing new under the sun

Q: My parents recently told me that my husband and I are letting our toddler run our family and that it's becoming increasingly uncomfortable for them to visit or have us visit with them - they live 10 miles away - because of her misbehavior. Mind you, she is only 28 months old. They told me, for example, that she should be toilet trained already. Her pediatrician, however, told us to wait until she was closer to three. In addition, she throws frequent tantrums and often refuses to do what we tell her to do. That's normal for this age ...

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Son's career choice needs support

Q: Our 18-year-old son made only slightly better than average grades in high school and finished in the top half of his graduating class. He could have done better, but has a history of underachievement which we explain as boredom. He managed to get into a second-tier state college but has decided after one semester (and as one might expect, mediocre grades) that he doesn't want to go back. In fact, he's telling us that he doesn't want to go to college at all. Instead, he wants to become a diesel mechanic. Needless to say, we're ...

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Vacationing in a winter wonderland

Nothing brings out the little kid in me like a blanket of freshly fallen snow. Add to that delicious food and quality time with my favorite person, and life is grand. My husband Kurt and I took a mini-Christmas vacation in early December to experience Candlelight Christmas Evenings at Biltmore in Asheville, North Carolina, where we awoke to 10 inches of pure white, fluffy, undisturbed snow. Then, we headed north for Sevierville, Tennessee, where I have a good friend who's a performer at Dollywood. It was a vacation to remember - and the food and wine couldn't have been ...

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Thinking of a fond Christmas memory

Some people say that we old folks spend too much time in the past, revisiting it in memories, talking about it too much to people who are not interested in hearing about it. "Too much" is a subjective conclusion. We have two, three, four times as many memorable life experiences as our critics. However, if remembering is a fault, I am faulty.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Adversity does not affect parenting

In a letter to the editor of the La Crosse (Wisconsin) Tribune, psychologist Afton Koball and two colleagues raise objections to a recent column in which I asserted that one can be parented badly and still parent well. It comes down to one's perspective and is, therefore, a matter of choice. Said another way, parenting is influential but not deterministic.

Footprints and South Georgia snow

Owen, the new dog, and I were out walking. At the crossroads, we saw two cars had pulled over. Two cars containing so many children that I wondered how they had all fit. They had clamored over the deep ditch like clowns spilling out into the big top and were gathering along the edge of the cotton field yet-to-be-picked. A mother, still standing in the road, was aiming a 35mm camera at the clowns/children. "Grandma," she explained, "would never forgive us if we didn't get a picture in the South Georgia snow."

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Cancellation is sad but a bit expected

An interesting, and telling, tale: As part of a recent speaking engagement sponsored by a regional medical center in the west, I was scheduled to address a gathering of local pediatricians. Two weeks prior to the address, my contact called to inform me that the medical center's behavioral health unit had put up such a fuss over my planned talk to the pediatricians that the center had decided to cancel it.
