I Love you!

BY REV. WES WASMUNDT   There are a lot of ideas for “I love you!” gifts. They include chocolates, roses, and little items of clothing, etc. Rather than reiterate the usual gifts and Valentines card sayings, I thought I’d share some “ways to say ‘I love you!’” Some may reflect your ideas and practices. But others may provide […]

Understanding Your Child’s Personality

Have you ever wondered how two children raised in the same home can be so unique and individualistic? How can one child be reverently quiet and withdrawn, while another–produced and raised by the same parents–is noisy and self-assertive? Extending the questions further, what determines the various personality patterns of human beings? Why is one mankind […]

The Invasion of Childhood Innocence

The warm summer breeze wafted across the screened porch carrying the sweet smell of honeysuckle. The night air was filled with the chatter of family talk as we shelled purple-hull peas. When the bushels of peas were finished, we rewarded ourselves with big, cool slices of watermelon. Pleasant memories of childhood still fill my head: catching lightning bugs in Mason jars, […]

Spending Time With Your Kids

DADDY, HOW MUCH DO YOU MAKE AN HOUR? “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away” (James 4:14). Money has no value in and of itself, it is just a unit of exchange. We exchange each […]

How To Pray For Children

Who will put forth the time and effort to maximize instead of minimizing the influence God will have upon a child’s life if prayer is made for them? “Children are an heritage of the LORD” (Psalm 127:3). A burdened heart . . . arising in the night . . . crying out to God . . . uplifted […]

A Father’s Prayer For His Grown Children

“And… Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts.

Better Family Communication

Conflict is an inevitable part of family life. Families will always have conflict, particularly during the adolescent period. During these years our teens are dealing with physical and emotional changes, as well as struggling with identity, authority, and responsibility. Parents rarely face a day without conflict and stress. Thus, we often hear comments like: “Just wait until you have teenagers. They won’t […]

Getting to Know God With Your Children

When I think back to the many positive influences in my early life, I recognize that one of the greatest gifts I received was the way my family approached learning about God and prayer. God was a part of our everyday existence, as regular a part of conversation as sports or school or doing the dishes. So was prayer. My […]

The Way They Learn

When our twins were born, I was amazed to see how different these two “identical” babies were from each other. They were unique from the very beginning. Our friends often ask, “How do you tell them apart?” My standard reply is “Just watch them-you’ll know,” When you listen to them speak and watch them interact with people, you will have little […]

I married, taught school for four years and then became pregnant. Nine months later Jason Paul Kent burst into our lives on a Sunday morning in October. Though the labor […]

The Church in Your House

THE CHURCH IN YOUR HOUSE BY W. C. PARKEY Every home should be a house of God! The early church did not own church buildings. They met in the upper room. They met in the Temple. They met in Solomon’s porch. But most of all they met from “house to house,” that is, in the homes of various individuals. […]
