An Empty Tomb Means Full Forgiveness

Written by Scotty Harris

A fellow once said to me, “Don’t just tell me that Jesus rose from the grave; tell me why that should matter to me!” I saw his point and began, as best I could, to spell out at least some of the world-shaking implications of the words from the Gospel, “The Lord is risen” (Luke 24:34).

Dave has Answers to Your Money Questions!

Written by Dave Ramsey

Q.  My dad has been really bad with money his entire life. Anytime he would get into trouble, my grandparents would always bail him out. This time he came to my wife and I, asking for $350 to get out of overdraft at the bank. We’re trying to live on a budget and get control of our finances, and $350 would make things kind of tight at the moment. What do you think we should do?

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?

RRJ:  Growing up you said you were a church-going straight-laced kid, but not a Christian.  Can you explain the difference?

 

Mike:  Growing up, I went to Sunday School and church every Sunday with my family.  I was never involved in church activities, so I didn’t feel like it was a big part of my life.  I believed in God and Jesus, but never felt like I was filled with the true spirit of Christianity.  I was a pretty straight-laced kid because I had a father who made sure I behaved.  I was never part of the partying crowd in high school.  I really didn’t have time for it, because all my extra time was filled with sports and athletics. During those years, I had some good coaches that tried to steer me in the right direction. One of those was Lee High School Coach Jim Chafin, who I went to visit out in Texas last year.  He definitely was an influence for good in my life.

    If I Had Two Lives

    by Dan Vorm

     

    I feel like I should have been familiar with the name Costas Macris, but confess it was unknown to me until a biography unexpectedly showed up in the mail. Written by Dan Vorm, If I Had Two Lives is a stirring tale of an amazing life. I don’t know how it got to me, but I’m glad it did.

Faith at Work

  • Kim Kervin, Lawyer, Prattville AL

    RRJ:  Kim, you grew up in Athens, Alabama in a Christian home.  How did your parents create an environment for you to know God’s love through Christ? 

     

    Kim:  Growing up, my parents were both hard working. My father worked in a textile plant in Decatur, Alabama and my mother worked in the home.  We attended church on Sunday mornings, but were not really involved in other church activities. My parents also used our home and life routines to create an environment for us to connect to God and know his love through Christ. While I was raised in a Christian home, it was much later before I invited Jesus into my heart.
