What to Do When Your Child Feels Insecure

Ed Drew | May 16th 2023

The problem for our children is that it is very easy for them (as it is for their parents) to listen to the wrong another. Even those from the most secure, loving homes suddenly feel shaken over the smallest issue. They are left insecure by things that may sound trivial to us but are so, so important to them.... continue reading

How the Church Is a Hospital

Jen Oshman | May 11th 2023

It has been said, “The church is a hospital for sinners, not a museum for saints.” I think the quote originates from a Dear Abby syndicated column.

When we describe friends this way we are reflecting something beautiful about God’s design and desire for humanity, that familial relationships are meant to be near and dear to us. We were made to be part of a family. ... continue reading

What the All About… Series Is All About

Alison Mitchell | April 27th 2023

For many years I had the joy of working for a Christian charity that served in local schools by teaching the Bible. And I noticed two things about the children I taught. First, all the children, whether Christian or not, had heard key Bible stories so often that they thought they already knew all there was to know. And second, children from Christian homes lacked confidence in explaining why they believed that the Bible was true.... continue reading
