One out of every five teenagers surveyed, admitted to receiving or sending nude photos. Thatâ€™s called â€œsexting.â€ Participating in either sending or receiving can result in criminal charges if the photos involve students under age 16. Recent news coverage has illuminated the controversial charges of young, innocent looking young men and women who have faced […]
Several months ago, I ran into Zellers to buy a few things for the house. I rounded the corner from the aisle containing pillows and blankets into the next aisle, where I expected to find candles, vases, and home decor. But what I saw stopped me dead in my tracks.
Even if He never brought a man into her life, Krissy resolved to remain fully set-apart for Him. Jesus Christ, not the hope of an earthly romance, was the focus of her existence and the source of her fulfillment. Even without an earthly love story, her Heavenly Prince was more than enough. She wasn’t living for guys. She wasn’t living for an earthly romance. She was living for Him.
In an effort to inform parents of the harmful effects of seemingly innocuous fashion and tween buying trends, I’ve launched The Bod Squad. I’m hoping for 50,000 mothers across the nation to join me. What is the Bod Squad? It’s a group of moms who are incensed with the fashion industries attempt to take our little girl’s childhood away! The messages our girls get from the fashion industry are destructive. Let’s push back at that!
Lots of verbiage fills corners of the Internet and entire rows of bookstores about the “pesky problem” of an excess number of single adults these days. In this article, Carolyn McCulley addresses the question of the phenomenon of single adults in our churches.
It happened. Again. And it’s been happening with increasing frequency. I was listening to a Christian speaker, and she implied that anyone who disagreed with her position on women preaching in church was being “judgmental.” That person ought to examine his/her heart and repent of his/her attitude of superiority. Arrghh!
One of the great tragedies of American Christian young women is our total preoccupation with self. God has not called us to build our lives around the pursuit of our own selfish desires, but to be poured-out sacrifices for His kingdom…You don’t have to be amazingly gifted or highly educated to pour your life out for Jesus Christ. You don’t have to have been seminary educated or groomed at Bible college. You just need a heart fully surrendered to Him.

In the sixties, when Betty Friedan diagnosed her fellow wives and daughters as the victims of “the problem with no name,” American women reported themselves happier, on average, than did men. Today, that statistic has reversed. Male happiness has inched up, while female happiness has declined…. Feminism pumped its best medicine into woman’s veins, but somehow, it merely exacerbated the disease.
After a lengthy, intensive restoration project, one of the greatest masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance has been restored to its original splendor and returned to its home at the world-renowned Uffizi Gallery in Florence.Â The Madonna del Cardellino was painted by Raphael in 1505 for the wedding of his friend, a wealthy Florentine merchant. It […]
“King of the Castle” is a silly, childish game, but unfortunately, it’s a game that’s played in the lives of most adults – albeit on a much more sophisticated level. In the grown-up game there are no physical hills… But still, people fight with one another for superiority. Everyone wants to be “King of the Castle.” Emotionally and psychologically we knock one another down so that we can claim the high place as our own.
If you and/or your local church are looking for ways to evangelize, opening your home is one of the best methods for reaching the lost. Most of us, however, are not using our homes as we should to reach our neighbors, friends, and relatives. Tragically, many of us don’t even know our neighbors. Yet through hospitality, we can meet our neighbors and be a lighthouse in spiritually dark neighborhoods.
