Four Things to Talk About Before Marriage - The Big Four. Marriage counselors tell us that there are four main areas you need to be in harmony on before you get married. Those things are money, religion, kids and in-laws. To the extent that you’re not in agreement on these areas, your marriage will struggle. But to the extent that you are, you’re setting yourselves up for much smoother sailing.
3 Parenting Non-Negotiables -Do you want children and grandchildren who your friends enjoy having in their home, that you don’t mind taking places or even that you enjoy being around?

EWG’s Skin Deep Hall of Shame - Children’s sunscreens that fail the test.
EWG’s research into this year’s crop of sunscreens revealed that many products advertised for babies and kids are formulated with safer, more effective ingredients than those in other products. Still — buyer beware! There are still many children’s products that don’t meet the mark. Here are a few shameful trends and products in the 2012 sunscreen crop…
10 Ways Fear Robs Me -I believe that people have power over me. Power to wound, expose, shame, injure, and expect something I’ll never be able to deliver.

Get it wrong and not even the best treatment plan is able to fully help.
But what about diagnosing spiritual problems? Only God is omniscient and has a full, uninfluenced view of the human heart (1 Samuel 16:7).

I want you to think about your own relationships and look at them through three perspectives derived from biblical wisdom. These mentalities are essential in creating and sustaining a healthy relational lifestyle.
Courageous- Protecting the streets is second nature to these men. Raising their children in a God-honoring way? That’s courageous.
