35 Things I Wish I'd Known In High School

So today is a weird day.  My oldest child starts high school, and as I see the photos of many friends who have just sent their kids to college, I know that these next four years will go by faster than I'd like.  My husband and I are struck by the reality that there is still so much we want to teach our son before he graduates (class of 2019!) and leaves the nest.

While this day brings up lots of emotions, it also causes me to reflect on my high school years and at times, makes me think ...

Let's face it - it's difficult to keep up with the warp speed social media evolves.  In an already busy world, the need to keep tabs on the latest thing "socially" just doesn't seem to be a priority.

Elizabeth George, A Woman after God's Own Heart, reminds us that each day is so full of ...

Plug Into Popular Entertainment 5 Times a Week

Plugged InA few months ago I had the opportunity to travel to Europe.  I was amazed at the far-reaching influence of Hollywood.  In a Paris metro station I saw movie posters for "Les Minions" ("Minions" Movie) and "Vice Versa" ("Inside Out").  While walking up the Champs de Elysee I passed posters for "Ricky and the Flash" (this time in English).  And in a bistro in Rome the music of choice was a mix of pop hits from the 90s.

Back to School & Student Rights

The start of a new school year is a very exciting and yet, stressful time, for both students and their parents.  My two kids are entering Junior High and High School this week and this "new season" of change brings up lots of emotions.  It also brings my husband and me to our knees in prayer, especially since we know that their Christian faith will be challenged while attending public school.

This week and next week on "The Garlow Perspective," Jim Garlow speaks to the issue of student rights and religious freedom in public schools.  While many teachers encourage their ...
