30 Days of Prayer for Our Kids – Courage

Dust-storm-Texas-1935

Courage – Do we have courage in the midst of adversity? Hardships will come in this life. You may not have experienced hardship yet, but there will be some trials in all of our lives. It may be as simple as telling our friends and family “No” or “I can’t right now”. These things take courage. …

Dave’s Fireside Chats – See No Baby, Hear No Baby, Speak No Stupid

     A few days ago, I read with great interest a story in the U.K. Mail about Kate Middleton, aka the Duchess of Cambridge, considering using “hypno-birthing” (not to be confused with “hippo-birthing”) for the upcoming arrival of the royal bundle in July.  The article inspired me to write on the relatively unfunny subject of childbirth. …

Respect is one of the highest needs of men. They prefer our respect over our love. If a man feels disrespected he reacts unlovingly. I have learned some truths about this from an awesome book entitled, Love and Respect: The Love She Most Desires; The Respect He Desperately Needs by Emerson Eggerichs. When I began to realize …

Perspectives – Are Genetically Modified Foods Safe to Eat?

The Christian Libertarian – GMOs By Darin Osborne   One may assume (incorrectly) since Libertarians are concerned with limited government the response toward GMOs should be that of little to no regulations. But remember, TRUE Libertarianism is concerned most with individual liberty ( not corporation freedom) and the Constitution.  The US Constitution does allow for …
