Parenting 101: Back to Basics

Written by Jessica Gibbs-Fernandez, Ph.D.

Everyone seems to have an opinion about how to be a good parent. Books by experts and personal stories abound. You can find research testing a number of theories about different parenting styles showing the benefits and limitations of each one.  As much as the new parent educates him or herself, this information is of limited use until you deal with your own children, their personalities, and the other important part of the equation – the other parent’s own ideas. Children, families, and parents are unique, thus it is hard to have a recipe book on how to do this amazing job perfectly. However, parents need to keep in mind the general focus on their obligation and responsibility for their children’s spiritual growth, emotional and physical health, and ability to become good citizens of the world. But how?

The Power of Giving

Written by Kemi Searcy

Have you ever given to someone and felt something powerful in the act? There is power released when we give. I read an amazing story that illustrates perfectly the thoughts in my spirit about what even a small gift has the power to accomplish.

What's On Your To-Do List?

Written by Sam Whatley

I have noticed that some people are list makers and some are not. Some folks make a detailed grocery list before going to the store, while others get there and wander down every aisle. List makers are trying to be efficient, trying to do more in less time. So, they plan ahead.

The Only Love That Endures Forever

Written by Grady Smith

Have you been to a wedding recently and noticed the faces of the couple?  I love the way they beam with delight experiencing the height of the feeling of love.  Yet, in that very emotional moment, when I officiate weddings, I remind us all that we cannot relegate love to being only an emotional feeling that comes and goes.  In reality, love is not simply a feeling, though it does have an emotional component.  Love is something that also is demonstrated by action.

    A Practical Guide to Culture

    by John Stonestreet & Brett Kunkle

     

    Christians have an interesting relationship with culture. Culture is a word we love to use, but one we rarely pause to define. We speak of culture’s dangerous encroachment on the church, of our need to avoid it, engage it, or redeem it. But what is this culture thing anyway? It happens to be the subject of an excellent new book by John Stonestreet and Brett Kunkle. A Practical Guide to Culture is meant to help those who are helping the next generation navigate today’s world, and it does its job well.

Faith at Work

  • Ron Simmons, Vice President, Destination Sales, MACC

    RRJ:  You mentioned that you were raised in a Christian home.  How instrumental do you think that foundation was in who you are today?

     

    Ron:  Being raised in a Christian home was critical to everything I believe today.  It was the foundation for my life and lifestyle. I’m by no means perfect! I make mistakes like anyone else. I sin. I’m human. However, when I do make those mistakes, I know God is forgiving, and I ask for his forgiveness. Then I try to change and do better. I try to please God. I try to treat others the way I want to be treated. I learned that as a child. My mother and father were excellent examples of that as they displayed love for us in the home. We were raised in the church and learned the principles of Christian living…LOVE. The Bible doesn’t specifically address every situation we will be faced with in life, but the Christian principles I was taught still help me with those decisions.
