Slow down and enjoy the moment

Slow down and enjoy the moment

    Twenty-five years ago when Julie and I drove into Statesboro with the kids, we knew we had been blessed by God Who had brought us home. Strangers waved at us as we drove in, the streets were clean and there was little traffic up and down old two-lane Fair Road. I think there were only a few places to eat — mostly family style — and Georgia Southern College had perhaps 9,000 students.

Tribute to a friend I met online

All too often, we hear horror stories about "meeting" people online. It's true that predators and crazy people use the Internet as a tool to take advantage of others, but if one uses common sense, the world of cyberspace can lead to true, real relationships.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Video games proving very problematic for teen boys

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Video games proving very problematic for teen boys

    Q: Our 14-year-old son seems depressed — to us, at least. His principal sees no sign of depression but thinks he’s socially anxious. The subjects of counseling and medication have come up. We have suggested to him that he get more exercise and spend less time playing video games and watching TV, but he says he hates sports. He appears to be withdrawing more and more into his video-screen world.

'Elijah' took me to Israel

'Elijah' took me to Israel

It has been some 30 years since my brother-in-law and I stood on the top of Mount Carmel in northern Israel, the site of the remarkable biblical encounter between Elijah and the priests of Baal. We had talked about 1 Kings 17 the night before and when we realized that we were not bound to the travel itinerary and read about a side trip to Haifa — just a few miles from Mount Carmel — we jumped at the chance.

Guest column: Preventing cervical cancer

Guest column: Preventing cervical cancer

A cancer diagnosis, no matter the type, can be sobering for any patient. Cervical cancer in particular can be frightening for women with fears that the diagnosis eliminates their chance to have children, or worse. As a gynecological oncologist, helping women understand the importance of preventative care can mitigate many of the threats associated with cervical cancer.

The importance of teachers

Recently, I exited my editor's office to find a lady waiting to speak to me. I was quite flabbergasted when she told me I was a former student of her father's, and that he spoke of me often until his death earlier this year.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Tips for hosting your own low country boil party

    Today is my 31st birthday, which brings to mind one of the best parties I’ve ever thrown, my Low Country Boil Birthday Bash just a few years ago.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Be a parent, not a friend

    Q: My 14-year-old daughter says I don't trust her because, unlike her best friend’s parents, I won’t allow her to stay home alone for several days while I go out of town. Her friend’s parents do this at least once a month while they go to their second home, and their two teenagers — 14 and 16 — have thrown at least two raucous alcohol (and most likely sex) parties in their absence.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Tackle problems when the iron is cold

    Q: Our 4-year-old daughter has a huge problem with being laughed at. She loves to be goofy and do funny things, but as soon as someone, including one of us, laughs at her, she becomes upset. She will say "Don't laugh!" or "I don't want you to laugh at me!" We explain that we aren't laughing at her but at the funny things she does. We’ve also told her that we laugh because we are happy and having a good time with her. Is there a different way to explain this to her so that she ...

Kathy Bradley - A parade and a pyramid

Kathy Bradley - A parade and a pyramid

    Jackson is almost 4 — that age at which he understands his separateness from other people but does not yet understand the separateness of his emotions. His will is clear and distinct, but his heart is still one with the world. Whatever is happening to him, be it highest joy or deepest sorrow, is happening to the world. That thing — the filter, the wall, the individuation of identity that will eventually teach him that this is not so, that his feelings are uniquely his and that not everyone can be trusted with them — has yet to take hold.

A memorable spring break

A memorable spring break

    Last week, while most students were vacationing in such exotic faraway places like Panama Beach, Daytona Beach or Hopeulikeit, Julie and I had the wonderful opportunity to run down to Sarasota, Florida, to see our daughter and family and our middle son, George, from California. For those of you who don't know the scenario, from the day after Thanksgiving to the day after Easter, Florida fills up like a test tube full of Snowbirds who eat everything in sight, drive like maniacs and play very bad golf.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Fear is not always a bad thing

    I recently came across a 1951 article my late mother saved from the Charleston (S.C.) News and Courier. Titled “Agency Offers Pointers on How Parents Can Guide Their Child’s Emotional Development,” it is proof that parents and professionals of three generations ago possessed a wealth of common sense, a quality that has since become most uncommon.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk - Celebrate spring with strawberries

    Happy spring! We have survived the long, cold, dark, snowy and rainy days of winter, and I couldn’t be happier to lay the power outages to rest and welcome the sunshine, watch the azaleas reveal their colors and see the earth bloom back to life. I’ve always loved this season, and I may be a little biased. My birthday is in April, the Masters golf tournament returns to my hometown of Augusta, Ga., and my family and I keep I-95 South hot with trips to my favorite vacation destination: St. Simons Island in the beautiful Golden Isles of ...
