Why Large Families Aren’t Killing the Planet (and what is)

Excellent read about the real problem our society has, and why it's ignorant to wag a finger in the face of the large family. (Although that's easier than owning up to our responsibility.) "On my street, in houses of similar size and function, you will find mostly couples with no children or 1 or 2 children. ...

The Purpose of Children (They are Not For Us–And They Are)

Our lives are a result of our beliefs--our theology about everything. We make choices based on what we believe about things. Conscious of it or not, our theology comes out our fingertips. It's a worldview, and contrary to popular opinion, or how much one dislikes that term, everyone does, in fact have a worldview. If ...
