Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Kudos to school's 'problem-solving' sign to parents

Just when I am teetering on the edge of despair concerning the state of child rearing in America, dwelling much, much too obsessively on the damage being done to children and the nation by parents who won't allow their children to take full responsibility for themselves, a little beam of light finds its way through the darkness and rekindles my hope for a future in which children are once again held fully accountable and, as a consequence, allowed to experience the fullness of authentic liberty.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: A semester full of cooking and baking

My second semester of culinary school is moving at an exciting pace.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Two's a pear: Sweet and savory

My husband and I are blessed to have fruit-bearing trees in our backyard. On either end of the fence in the far corners of our nearly 2-acre lot, we have a fig tree and a pear tree and have truly enjoyed their bounty this summer. There's something so gratifying about grabbing a basket from inside and walking out the back door to harvest food you're going to eat moments later; food you didn't do anything to earn, just the earth giving of itself.
