Q. What’s your opinion on rewarding kids with money for getting good grades in school?

Published in Dave Ramsey Says

Expectant parents are bombarded with educational classes on how to nurture and care for their newborn, but who nurtures the couple during this transition?  New parents are thrown into a scary, unknown place when they go from ‘couple without kids’ to ‘couple with kids.’  Or should I say, ‘couple with sleep’ to ‘couple without sleep.’  Not only are they sleep deprived, but they are trying to figure out feeding/nap schedules, in-laws, unsolicited advice, and the car seat!  Overwhelming!

But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,

for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”(Matthew 19:14)

 

 

For the past 10 years, Montgomery has had the pleasure of being home to one of the leading Christian Community Development Programs, The Nehemiah Center.  The Nehemiah Center was created using the model of community development which involves going into an under served area and enabling and empowering the community to better help themselves.

Recognizing the Power of Prayer

A few weeks removed from the men’s basketball championship game, I want to steer you again toward Duke University, not to the hardwood, but toward a leading academic who relates the correlation between religion and health.  Yes, Duke has a Center for Spirituality, Theology and Health - its director is Dr. Harold Koenig.

Teaching your kids can feel daunting.

But teaching your kids theology can feel downright terrifying.

 

Some feel overwhelmed with time issues. They just don’t see how they can fit something else into their day. Others may not feel as if they have adequate theological training. They feel uncomfortable instructing their kids beyond, “Jesus loves you.”

A Bride in Name Only

In April, 1956 C. S. Lewis of England married Joy Davidman of the United States in a civil ceremony. But she became a bride in name only. And even that was a secret. Her British visa had expired and she was facing deportation to America with her two young sons, knowing that her violent, alcoholic, ex-husband would be waiting for them. She needed desperately to find another place to live and decided to become a British citizen.

 

 

RRJ: Some people can tell you the exact day and time they realized their need for Jesus’ gift of atonement.  You two don’t have a moment like that because you’ve both looked to Jesus for as long as you can remember.  Why is that and do you ever wish you had a “moment of salvation”?

After Acts by Bryan Liftin

 

The story of the early church is the story of God working in incredible ways through a group of people known as his apostles. These are the people he had specially chosen and called to serve as his emissaries, to take the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ all through the known world. Again and again we read about these apostles in the book of Acts and in the various epistles, but what happened to all of those characters once the book of Acts was complete and the biblical canon was closed? This is the question Brian Litfin means to answer in his new book After Acts: Exploring the Lives and Legends of the Apostles.
