[Obama is] painting a picture of how he’d like to expand the administrative state to include government pre-school. Because public schools are doing such a good job generally. Anyway, he then took an absolutely bizarre swipe against stay-at-home mothers: “Sometimes, someone, usually Mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves […]

Preparing Sons For The Future

| October 25, 2014

By R.C. Sproul Jr. of Highland Ministries Don’t follow the folly of the world. An excellent question. Too often we in the church follow the folly of the world in taking a passive approach to the future. We tend to believe all we have to do is show up, and if things don’t work out […]

Halloween and Your Kids

| October 25, 2014

Few festivals give Christians more cause for debate than Halloween. To some Christians, it is merely a harmless time.To others, it is indicative of the prevailing godless worldview. Few festivals give Christians in the Western world more cause for debate than Halloween. To some Christians, it is merely a harmless time of year when children […]

Consequences or Love of God – What Motivates Your Teenager?

| October 23, 2014

It is no secret teenagers face powerful temptations.  Parents want to make sure that consequences are in place to help protect their children. It is good to put deterrents in place for behavior that is unacceptable and sinful. But, for your teenager, still it comes down to that moment of decision; is the consequence enough […]

Seduction And the Cost of Saying ‘No’

| October 16, 2014

Many of us have long been aware of the many seductions our culture offers which leads to the great seduction or who we’ll ultimately follow. But it bears repeating. Every Christian will face and have to deal with the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life in America and […]

Be Ready to Answer Your Kids’ Questions About the Bible

| October 13, 2014

By Jon Bloom at Desiring God Kids are thinkers. They ask good and sometimes hard questions. My kids have asked me some of the hardest theological questions between ages 5 and 8. They’ve queried me on comparative religion, death, eternity, heaven, hell, Jesus and the cross, and what about all those people who have never […]

When Jesus is a Cartoon

| October 13, 2014

By Kara Murphy published at Highlands Ministries Children’s Bible Stories In the Sunday school classrooms in which I taught years ago, each weekly lesson had a main idea that we repeated over and over. Platitudes such as “God loves me,” “I am special to God,” and “We are kind to one another” filled the teacher’s […]

Boy, Girl, or “Purple Penguin”?

| October 10, 2014

By Ken Ham at Answers In Genesis According to news reports (including on Fox News yesterday), a school district in Lincoln, Nebraska has recently given its teachers a handout to promote gender inclusiveness in their classrooms.

Don’t Waste Your Time Raising Children

| October 7, 2014

Another great one from Kelly at Generation Cedar I think I finally agree with the feminists that raising children is a waste of time. After all, anyone really can do it. So why not let a paid day care worker handle the messes, settle the squabbling, feed the babies, change the diapers and keep them happy so you can do something […]

Life and Death and the Last Days, or Why Eschatology Matters

| September 17, 2014

Bad eschatology breeds bad parenting, at least, and poor planning in general. Her children display obvious skepticism. As she sits trying to persuade them that the Rapture will indeed happen any day now, one daughter responds sheepishly, “Well, it could happen.” She is rebuffed immediately: “It will happen. There’s no ‘could’ to it.” In a later private session, the […]

Steve Jobs Was a Low-Tech Parent

| September 12, 2014

Some food for though… When Steve Jobs was running Apple, he was known to call journalists to either pat them on the back for a recent article or, more often than not, explain how they got it wrong. I was on the receiving end of a few of those calls. But nothing shocked me more than something Mr. […]

Our Children, Our Neighbors

| September 2, 2014

By Jen Wilkin at The Villiage Church If you asked me the single most important insight that has shaped my parenting, it would be this: Children are people. It seems self-evident. Clearly, they have arms, legs, ears, noses and mouths—enough to qualify. But the idea of their personhood goes far beyond possessing a human body. It […]
