Help Them Help Themselves 

 

Q.  My parents have always been bad with money, and recently they lost their home to foreclosure. They found another place to live, and they both work, but since the foreclosure my dad has been asking me for money on a regular basis. He tries to make me feel guilty, and he calls or asks me to come over to talk about it when my mom isn’t home. He even asked for half of the bonus I received at work the other day. I know they need help, but I’m not sure what to do.

Skyrocket Your Father Esteem

Written by Kemi Searcy

An American missionary went to an African village to evangelize. He saw a man and his wife returning from a farm. The man was walking several steps in front of his wife. The wife was trailing her husband, carrying a basket of produce on her head. This scene infuriated the western missionary. He quickly stopped them, confronting the husband, “Sir, why are you enslaving your wife in such an inhumane way? Why can’t you, as the man who is stronger, carry the load and walk behind your wife?”

The Challenge of Parenting

Written by Candyce Anderson, LPC

I fondly remember learning how to drive. My mother was dead-set on driving lessons so that I would be prepared to operate a 2000 pound piece of machinery on a road packed with not only pedestrians, but cute fluffy animals.  I studied day and night to earn my permit, drove with instructor Ms. Burton for 6 months and passed my road-test on the first go ‘round. It was official; I was a licensed vehicle operator with all the privileges therein vested in my 16 year-old abilities.

Swatting at the Bee

Written by Bob Crittendon

For some, it might be required reading; for others, it may be an acquired taste. The Babylon Bee is a Christian satire site that will frequently give you something to think about, maybe chuckle at, or even laugh out loud!

Be a Super Mom!

Written by Kemi Searcy

Wouldn’t it be fabulous if our children were born with instructions attached to them as to how to raise them? Heaven delivers these cute little bundles to us who, from the day they arrive, take over our lives. We love them, but it takes a bit more than just love to raise them properly. We need knowledge.

Faith at Work

  • Charnelle Joiner

    RRJ:  What goals have you set and achieved? In your opinion, where does your drive come from?

     

    Charnelle:  Two of the first goals I set were to obtain my cosmetology license and become a certified group fitness instructor. Once those goals were met, I started setting new ones. I graduated from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management, commissioned in the Air Force, obtained my Teachers of English to Students of Other Languages (TESOL) certification and began teaching English as a Second Language.
