Our Holy Quest: Learning and Living God's Word

Written by Jay Wolf

Our First Baptist Family has a wonderful tradition of providing all of our first graders with a special Children’s Bible.  I write each of the children a special note in their Bible and we dedicate a Sunday evening service to presenting the new Bibles to these precious children to convey to them the vast importance of being a life-long student of the Scriptures.  A few weeks ago we presented 53 children with their special Bibles.

Dave Ramsey has the Answers to Your Questions!

Written by Dave Ramsey

Q. My husband and I have been saving, and we’re ready to buy our first home. We found a place we both love and can afford if we do a 30-year mortgage instead of a 15-year mortgage. Should we wait and save more for a down payment so we can afford a 15-year mortgage, or go ahead and do the 30-year deal?

Trust is Essential

Written by Kim Hamblin, Ph.D

We are born with the need to trust. It is the way that that trust is met or not met that plays a huge role in the development of our lives. Trust is an essential requirement for human life. Without it, life is extremely hard to navigate. Failure to trust can leave us isolated and unable to realize our true potential because we fear being hurt.

How Do We "Filter"?

Written by Bob Crittendon

Perhaps you are aware of the previously contentious nature of the relationship between the VidAngel filtering service and various studios.  VidAngel has re-launched after being shut down, after an “injunction was obtained” by Disney, Fox, and Warner.  In the old system, according to the Deadline website, “VidAngel cracked the encryption on discs, then sold and repurchased the content in transactions with consumers who specified edits. In effect, the sale and re-purchase created a cheap, family-friendly rental of popular films...”

Caring for the Next Generation

Written by Kemi Searcy

When my children were younger, I remember deciding to purchase them a new jacket and wearing my threadbare coat for yet another year. This proves true the quote: “A real parent is someone who puts their kids above their selfish wants and needs.” These words sound like they were taken straight from the pages of the Bible. Our Father God demonstrated the ultimate selfless act when He gave His only Son to redeem humanity. Unfortunately, we have seen an increase in behavior from our peers toward the next generation that doesn’t mimic God’s actions. We often fall in line with King Hezekiah in 2 Kings 20.

Copilot Fruit Bearers

Written by Sam Whatley

Years ago a bumper sticker became popular that stated, “God is my copilot.”  On the positive side, that message shows us that we are to work side by side with the Lord in all things and trust Him completely. That is certainly true. On the negative side, it seems to indicate that God is here to assist us with our plans.

Faith at Work

  • Molly Stone, Executive Director, The Wellness Coalition

    RRJ:  Molly, as Executive Director at The Wellness Coalition, what does your job entail?

     

    Molly:  The Wellness Coalition is a nonprofit organization that works to get people the healthcare they need. We help uninsured adults connect with a doctor, apply for medication assistance, and learn how to manage chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension. We also offer wellness classes on diabetes prevention and chronic disease management. Healthcare access and literacy is a major need in our community, and uninsured adults will frequently use the emergency room for regular care instead of seeing a doctor. That is not good for the hospitals or the patients. We try to break that cycle by providing resources and education to improve our clients’ health and quality of life.
