To Tell the Truth: Confronting a Dishonest Teen

Kids lie for the same reasons that adults lie...to lift themselves up, to get ahead, to destroy their competition, or to protect themselves and avoid consequences. It's best to deal with dishonesty earlier in life, since it tends to grow incrementally with each lie that isn't caught.

The Incontrovertible Facts about Fathers

The U.S. leads the world in the percentage of mother-only families, but research overwhelming shows that God's original design for the family - with an active father as the head - is essential to the health of our children...

Pray God’s Promises for Your Kids' Lives

No matter how hard you may work to help your kids experience God’s best for them, there are limits to what you can do. Prayer, though, has no limits.

Pull Out All the Stops to Help Your Teen

For parents, there is no worse feeling than watching your child spin out of control while nothing you do seems to make any difference. If your teenager's behavior is giving you feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and fear, I would like to offer you some suggestions.

Pornography -- The Difference Being a Parent Makes

Steve Jobs made this clear in his retort to Ryan Tate that he "might care more about porn when you have kids." Parenthood changes everything about one's outlook on life and its challenges.

Moms Have a Mission Field

Recently, I found myself armed with drop cloths, brushes and a stepladder as I tended to some much-needed interior painting. While I worked, I listened to a talk show on Christian radio. "I feel like I'm not doing anything for God!" moaned one mom who called in...

Are We Adequately Preparing Our Young People for Life?

Today's generation of youth leaders are reaching young people in wonderful and innovated ways. Unprecedented resources are being thrown at Christian youth. But I hear very few messages that encourage actual maturity.

If you have a son, you know that a boy can be both wild and sweet. You'll encounter some hair-raising challenges while raising him to become a strong man, but you'll also enjoy the many rewards of sharing adventures with your son.

Forever Mother

Separation. Pulling apart. A growing need for freedom. They are healthy, important parts of becoming an independent human being. But don't let the modern culture twist that truth into a lie that says your teenagers or adult children don't need mothering. They do.

Mother’s Day and Mixed Emotions

Mother's Day can bring mixed emotions. The idyllic imagery of motherhood often doesn't match up with the reality that the relationships involved are often far more complicated than we wish. If Mother's Day is bittersweet for you, here's some encouragement from God's word.

Straight from The Middle: Patricia Heaton on Mother's Day

Patricia Heaton just wants to be "left alone." Not all the time, mind you. But definitely on Mother's Day—and that's whether she's playing Frankie on ABC's hit sitcom, The Middle, or at home in real life with her husband and four boys.
