The Family Dinner Table Matters

I'll be the first to admit that having regular family dinners can be a challenge.  As our kids have gotten older and involved in more activities, it's affected our ability to schedule this special time around the table, as much as we'd like.  At the same time, these are the days when it's more critical than ever to be intentional about bringing the family together.

Kids today face more pressure than ever and knowing they have a safe place to share their concerns as well as voice their opinions, is so important.  Studies continue to show ...

Miracles are for Real

Miracles coverJim Garlow is a “Renaissance Man.” I’m not saying that simply because he has a doctorate in church history and knows the ins and outs of what went on in the Church during the renaissance.

Merciful missionaries

Mercy Ships® on a missionIt occurred to me today that I am blessed with incredible health. I don't have any serious injuries or health issues. For this, I'm extremely thankful! If, however, I were to get into an accident, I have confidence that I would receive medical care from trained professionals in a timely fashion. Again, I am grateful for this!

A woman in Sierra Leone, however, had to wait for 30 years to get medical attention! Previously unable to walk because of severe burns to her leg, ankle and knees, this lady finally received medical care from a trainee plastic surgeon ...

Ethics in the Workplace: Is it an Oxymoron?

There's no doubt that in recent years, we've experienced endless business scandals in our country.  Is there any hope to recapturing ethics in the workplace?  Take a minute to examine your own ethical compass.  Have you ever told a story to get out of work?

In the next episode (sixth) in the "Doing the Right Thing" series for release this weekend, Chuck Colson and John Stonestreet tackle this important issue while emphasizing that business is a noble pursuit which can make a positive contribution to society.  However, the reality is that so many people, and so many Christians ...
