The Joys of Parenting

God blessed my wife and I with three wonderful children many years ago.  There is no question about it.  Children are a precious gift from the Lord (Psalm 127:3).  God gives us these precious gifts to bring joy into our lives.  All parents, when taking the time, can recall all the little and big joys that […]

Where Is Jesus?

Christmas is just around the corner.  Excitement and anticipation fill the hearts and minds of children and adults alike.  But it is also a very hectic time of the year.  The busier we get, the more stressed we become.  I want to challenge you to think about the question, Where is Jesus?, as you get ready […]

What are […]

Importance of Your Foundation – Part 2

The ‘gods’ of Education: Part 2

I have been discussing the ultimate purpose of education in the past couple of blogs that I have posted. This week I want to look at some other statements by Neil Postman in his book, The End of Education. Even though Postman was a secular professor of education, he got some things right. He wrote: […]

The “gods” of Education

In my last post we addressed the four words that drive all educational efforts.  These four words are “fear”, “pursue”, “serve” and “conform”.  If you read that article, you were asked to identify the ‘god(s)’ that parents and educators are pursuing today when it comes to educating future generations.  I received several emails and comments from […]
