Honest Talk About Marriage from Matt and Lauren Chandler -“For this podcast, I talked with Matt and Lauren about what they’ve learned during the hard times and why they have a burden for helping other Christians thrive in their marriages.

Routines That Give Children Security and Love -“There is no one right way to live life in a home. No one size of routine or rules or order fits all…. But the more carefully we plan our days, the better our homes will provide us with freedom and enjoyment as well as purpose and accomplishment. … Familiar rhythms and routines give structure that provides leadership and personal care to all who live there. When children and guests know what to expect, they also know how to ask for their personal needs to be met and understand what part they play in the life of the home.” ~ Sally Clarkson, The Lifegiving Home
The Scandal of Biblical Illiteracy: It’s Our Problem –“This really is our problem, and it is up to this generation of Christians to reverse course. Recovery starts at home. Parents are to be the first and most important educators of their own children, diligently teaching them the Word of God. [See Deuteronomy 6:4-9.] Parents cannot franchise their responsibility to the congregation, no matter how faithful and biblical its may be. God assigned parents this non-negotiable responsibility, and children must see their Christian parents as teachers and fellow students of God’s Word.” -Al Mohler

A 9th planet discovery? CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) – “The solar system may have a ninth planet after all.This one is 5,000 times bigger than outcast Pluto and billions of miles farther away, say scientists who presented “good evidence” for a long-hypothesized Planet X on Wednesday.
The gas giant is thought to be almost as big as its nearest planetary neighbor Neptune, quite possibly with rings and moons. It’s so distant that it would take a mind-blowing 10,000 to 20,000 years to circle the sun.”
