Kelly Needham on Grief and God’s Glory

Grief is the recognition that something has been lost forever. It forces us into an awareness that we have no control to change or fix the situation. What is gone is gone and can never be regained, at least not fully. Grief is an emotion we don’t gladly welcome. We keep it at arm’s length pretending it will go away if we wait long enough. And sometimes it … Continue reading Kelly Needham on Grief and God’s Glory

ACBC: The Abuse Pendulum

I am thankful to God that many necessary and important books and articles are being written to increase awareness of physical and sexual abuse as they affect both the society at large and the Christian community in particular.

Desiring God: Should Moms Stay Home?

I was a woman succeeding in a man’s world. I was very much “living the dream.” I loved Jesus and being a Christian, but my primary identity was “successful professional.” My work was the main source of my personal sense of affirmation and accomplishment. I could exercise control, see results on a regular basis, and be rewarded for it, both with recognition and compensation. Many … Continue reading Desiring God: Should Moms Stay Home?

In Women Are Key for Future Growth: Evidence from Canada the International Monetary Fund recommends that Canada spend eight billion dollars annually on a daycare program that would pay for itself.
