As a child, I was forced to learn Chinese characters. My parents told me that it would be "good for me." Little did I know what they really meant! Knowing some of the basic Chinese characters was beneficial not only for understanding the language, but it helped me understand the Chinese (and by extension the Korean) culture.
You may have already known this, but some Chinese characters were developed in a pictographic form - the characters looked like the object they represented. For example, the character for 'fire', 火, is a pictographic representation of two flames above a pair of logs ...Read Full Post »

Have you ever felt unwanted, even unloved? I have. It's a painful and powerful emotion that is difficult to overcome.
Growing up, some cruel children said that I was adopted. Although the accusers had no factual knowledge and were merely 'teasing me', I found myself very hurt by their words. I wanted so badly to belong. The very idea that no one wanted me wounded my heart.
Perhaps this is why I love that God calls me His child. We all are children of God. None of us, therefore, are unwanted or unloved. God knows each of us by ...Read Full Post »

Unlike the Christian radio industry, good TV programming is hard to come by. Rarely are shows thought provoking and engaging at the same time. It's been my experience that most TV shows use sex, drugs, violence or special effects as their main story line.
Brad Mattes, host of both "Life Issues®" and "Facing Life Head On", however, knows how to do both radio and TV well. As the executive director of the Life Issues® Institute Brad interviews individuals and families on topics like abortion, adoption, disabilities, medical technologies, stem cell treatments and end-of-life care, Brad fuses education with entertainment ...Read Full Post »

Have you ever promised to pray for someone . . . without following through? I'll be the first to admit that I have. Sometimes I forget. Other times, I am in the middle of my own mini-life crisis and have enough problems of my own to pray for. Most of the time, however, I know that saying "I'll pray for you" is the easy (or fast) way out of a difficult (or long) conversation. Our lives will go on and the problem will eventually work itself out.
Recently, however, I started to wonder why I make promises to pray for ...Read Full Post »

Vending machines are convenient. They provide you with the soda and chips you've been craving all day. They now also dispense DVD's, fresh flower bouquets, and even a pre-heated kosher hot dog! It's incredible! They are open 24/7 and are there to help you in case you get hungry or bored (or both!) at three in the morning.
Unfortunately, I recently learned of some some vending machines that aren't as friendly. Brad Mattes, host of the daily 1:00 Life Issues®, shared that there are vending machines in Iowa that dispense the chemical abortion RU ...
