His job required a good bit of travel. Extended business trips came with the position. He and his wife did their best to work through the challenges associated with being apart and with raising their two sons and one daughter. She and the kids had their routine down when dad was gone. On his return, there would typically be a couple of tough days but the family would adjust to their secondary routine fairly quickly.

On one trip, Dad called his daughter to wish her a happy birthday. Her response caught him off-guard. She said, ...read on

As a single mother, she knew she could not be a mother and a father to her teenage son. She focused on being a mom and called on a son-in-law and a brother-in-law to step in as father-figures in the young man’s life. They could do what she could not – teach him to be a man. Neither man was perfect but through faith and prayer she trusted the Heavenly Father to work through these men to guide her son into manhood.

Single parents have a tough row to hoe. They have half the time, half the energy and half of the whole dimension of relationship offered by a mom and a dad in the home. Single moms in particular are ten times more likely ...read on

The media will continue to be the media. They will give the riots in New York City and elsewhere front page coverage to promote the theme of deep division in our country. Another headline highlights classes being cancelled at various universities to allow students to process fear they have about President-elect Trump. Stirring up division and fear reflect a new post-election low for presidential elections I have participated in.

In a recent article, Harlem Gives President Trump a Chance, Jason Riley writes, “This may come as a shock to the political left, but not everyone who opposed Donald Trump is ...read on

Marriage was not living up to her expectations. Her husband worked crazy hours, gone for days at a time. She was stuck alone in their apartment in a strange new city a couple of states away from family. When her husband did get home, it was not unusual for him to spend one of his three days off sleeping to recover from the demands of the job. She was alone even when her husband was home.

About eight months into the marriage the young bride called home to say she had had enough. She was shocked that her mother did not immediately say it was okay to come back home. Instead, her mom asked three questions: ...read on

After his weekend experience at the church’s father-son retreat, he met with the pastor and said, “I want what your men have.” He had seen men discussing tough topics in small groups, dads enjoying time with their sons and fathers praying a specific blessing over their sons in front of the whole group. He had never witnessed such real relationship among men before.

One older man in the group without a son at the retreat shared a story of ...read on

At a recent “Porn Harms” conference, Josh McDowell told a story of a mom that could not find her cell phone. She had looked in all the normal places and finally decided to ask her 10year old son if he had seen her phone but she could not find him either. Going to his room she found the door shut. When she entered the room, her son jumped and tried to hide the phone under his shirt.

The ensuing exchange was ...read on

In her seventies, she was the oldest one in her class by several decades. She enjoyed the interaction with the “kids” and reminded them how important it was to grow and learn every day. Mary led by example as she went on to earn her Master’s Degree in Christian Counseling at age 78.

Mary was the most spiritual person I have ever known. She was not one to just sit in the pews, listen to the pastor every Sunday and go home. She committed time daily to ...read on

Crime, racism, sexual exploitation, failing schools and dysfunctional families seem to dominate the news. Throw in a heavy dose of election-year politics and it is easy to get caught up in the shadows at work to stifle the Light in this world.

Jason Riley, author of “Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make It Harder for Blacks to Succeed”, recently wrote about the Republican candidate venturing into the inner cities ...read on

Confusion is rampant around sexuality and what healthy relationship looks like. As men, we must accept responsibility for the status quo because we have been passive toward a scheme designed to distract us, destroy marriages and is now aggressively going after our kids.
