North Carolina went so far as to ban civil unions recognizing marriage as the […]

…Wow!  Is that even possible? There is only one way that I know to do that.  It is to teach your children to have proper respect for the authorities God has placed over them, and then to teach them to obey the first time. The first verse we ever had our children memorize was John […]

To say that I’m looking forward to this weekend would be an understatement.  I’m ecstatic. This Saturday the Meredith girls will be reunited.  Now that my sister and I have left the nest and live in separate states, reunions like these with mom are rare and cherished, and obviously make a second piece of cheesecake […]

Redeeming the Time

 Summer – it’s a word that causes students to dream of days with no alarm clocks jarring them from peaceful slumber and to dream of nights spent hanging with friends instead of cramming for exams or writing last minute papers.  Three whole months of freedom! Truth be told, students are not the only ones who […]

Dear Dottie: What's All This About Head Coverings?!?

Dear Dottie, I’ve noticed that you wear hats during worship services and it sparked my curiosity. Do you wear them because of 1 Corinthians 11’s command that women should cover their heads in church? I must confess I’ve always been a little confused about that passage. Does the Bible command that we should wear head […]

I was sure that I’d been hacked. There was no way that could have appeared on my Facebook page…and consequently on several hundred other people’s news feeds. But somehow, through the all-knowing Google Search which connected to an unknowingly employed Yahoo Reader App, which connected to my social life on a webpage a.k.a. Facebook, the […]

My daughter, Makaylan, is days away from turning a year old. As a result, my husband and I have entered a new phase of parenting – the discipline stage. Right now her biggest temptation is the electrical sockets. Though we have them covered, we still do not want her to play with them. We know […]

A Faith-Changing Vacation

By on April 24, 2012 in Education with 0 Comments

Spring is well under way, and soon summer will be here – Vacation time!  Some of my favorite vacations have been visiting historic places, especially places associated with Christian history.  Seeing the church in Wittenberg where Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door, symbolically beginning the Reformation, somehow makes the event more real.  Visiting […]

Set-Apart in a “Sex is Power” World

By on April 19, 2012 in Feminism, Sexuality, Women's Issues with 2 Comments

At the end of the 30-second commercial I wasn’t sure whether I should be laughing or blushing! As the on-screen ladies witnessed the dramatic duels of flying samurais and jousting knights, I heard: It’s the cradle of life. It’s the center of civilization. Men have fought for it, even died for it. One might say […]
