Using the Grandchild for Money


Q.  My wife and I have been helping our adopted daughter financially for some time. She’s 25, has been married for three years, and we don’t see this cycle stopping anytime soon. The worst part is, they will often throw in that our grandchild will go without something unless we help. We’re certain this isn’t teaching them to stand on their own feet, but we don’t know what else to do.

Listening as a Lifestyle

Written by Christy Holding, LPC

Ms. Christy, you just don’t get it.  You don’t understand.”  My client, a feisty, brave and loveable 19-year-old female was telling me about a difficult situation that she had been involved with at work.  And this was her response to me.  The sad part about it is that I thought I was really listening!  Her words were sobering and so I paused for reflection.

Stop Procrastinating...Get On With It!

Written by Kemi Searcy

Maybe you can relate to Craig from the UK. He wrote in a blog, “I bought a book called 52 Steps To Defeating Procrastination. I’ve still never read it - it was over 10 years ago, and I’m not even sure where it is now.”

Finding Shelter

Written by Sam Whatley

When a wildfire sweeps across the scrub oak, sandy land of north Florida, south Alabama, and south Georgia many small animals find a place to hide, thanks to a creature called the gopher tortoise. This tortoise, about fifteen inches long and weighing eight to fifteen pounds, loves to dig in the sand. His front feet are like shovels. His back feet are strong and sturdy. Consequently, he can create large burrows. One in north Florida left a burrow that was 26 feet deep and 65 feet long. But that project was huge.

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.

    Kiss the Wave

    by Dave Furman


    None of us makes it through life without suffering. None of us escapes physical pain, emotional distress, or spiritual agony. At some times and in some ways, we all suffer. No wonder, then, that so many authors have turned to the subject. As Christians, we are well-served with books to help us suffer well and books that help us grapple with the deeper theological questions that inevitably arise in the midst of our darkness.


Faith at Work

  • Tiffany Higginbotham: Owner, Body Logic Physical Therapiy

    RRJ:  Tiffany, you grew up in a Christian home, regularly going to church.  How has this foundation grown your faith in God?


    Tiffany:  A foundation was most certainly laid, and my entire extended family were/are all believers. I grew up in a home where faith and church were a high priority and our lives and schedules were centered around the church.  I learned at an early age to value God’s Word and begin to grid my life and decisions through a Biblical lens.
