Situated on 22 acres of beautiful wooded land outside of Wetumpka, Adullam House has been called one of the best-kept secrets in the River Region. It’s here where children of incarcerated parents find a safe haven and are provided with an opportunity many children in situations like theirs have not been given.

Where’s Your Treasure?

 

I’d like you to think for a moment about the rewards that await you in eternity as a follower of Jesus Christ. We are exhorted in many places to fix our minds on heaven.

 

If then you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. (Colossians 3:1–2)

What’s Your Sign?

 

A set of parents in Florida who had been disappointed in their 13-year-old’s behavior took a unique approach to punishment recently, according to a report on Yahoo!  On a particular Saturday, the teen spent 90 minutes standing at a busy intersection with a handwritten sign describing her sins.  It read: “I’m a self-entitled teenager w/no respect for authority. I’m also super smart, yet I have 3 ‘Ds’ because I DON’T CARE.”

Connecting with Your Children


 

Do you feel the pressure and obligation to raise Godly children in a godless society?  We place our children in private schools.  We home school them.  We involve them in church youth groups.  We parent them with Christian values and do our best to train, protect, and guide them through the maze of childhood and adolescence.  All these decisions are an attempt to give them what they need to face this culture and take a stand for what is right.  I would like to suggest one other priority that will empower your children into a healthy adulthood.

Q.  My husband and I have a baby and are trying to live on a budget and pay off about $14,000 in debt. He wants to spend $100 a month for a date night, but I think this is too much under the circumstances. I’m a stay-at-home mom right now, and after taxes he makes about $3,200 a month. What do you think?

What would you consider one of the most dangerous and destructive heresies on earth? A false teaching about Jesus or the Bible? Maybe. A wrong idea concerning the church? Possibly. But the one I’m thinking about is not so in-your-face and obvious. It is very subtle and attractive. For a long, long time it’s been the favorite of many religious people. It is a philosophy found in numerous self-help books, many poems and novels, and most rags-to-riches biographies. It is a recurring theme in political speeches and graduation addresses. It flourishes in our schools. It feeds our pride, it fuels our self-centeredness, it pleases our sinful nature. Any guesses?
