For most of us, we see or hear “propaganda” and instantly think of it in negative terms. In truth, it simply means attempting to “propagate” an idea, hence the term. As a result, it can be used to incite war or fight disease, foster unity or stir discrimination.

Only two things in this world are eternal—the Word of God and people.
Training our children requires more than simply providing an education. We must motivate them to passionately pursue worthy goals.
The wrath of God has always been a touchy subject, but never more so than during these modern times.
Not the mindless action fun you've been hoping for. What makes the stupidity vile is the level of blood lust that fuels the good guy.

Cloth vs. disposable. Pacifier vs. thumb. Bottle vs. breast. And that’s just the first few years! Mothering decisions are overwhelming.
"God do what You need to do, to get me to where I need to be."
I’m convinced that children grow up and leave the church in part because they’re not being confronted with their true condition- that they are desperately broken and in need of Savior.

It is not sinful to throw away a book. Free yourself to throw away bad books. And when I say to throw them away, I mean it.
So poorly executed that it's safe to say all comparisons between Percy Jackson and Harry Potter will come to a screeching halt.
In my years of parenting, I’ve learned that the ongoing conversation we have with our children is more important than any one-time “talk.”
Exotic birds can remind us of how we as women have strayed so far when it comes to understanding our true value and worth.
People hurt for their preferences when there's change. But part of the role of church leaders is to help people hurt for the right things.
Steven James writes the kind of stories that could be used to teach a course on suspense writing.
Westboro Baptist commits the error of saying everybody and everything is wrong, evil, and doomed to hell. Rob Bell makes the error of taking hard truth and bending it so it becomes more palatable. And the reality is, we too can fall into both errors.
My hope cannot be found in my rule keeping or performance before the Lord. So, why do we love rules?
I’ve found that a woman of faith is a woman who endures many difficulties and yet finds God in the midst of her troubles.
