The Love Factor

Sociologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and even Planned Parenthood counselors contend that love is the single most important ingredient in parenting. Love is a powerful agent in any type of relationship. That’s one point on which everyone agrees. Nevertheless, it’s perhaps the most misunderstood emotion, especially in America.

The Power Generation

The “call” to Christian parenthood is a demanding and weighty responsibility. It’s a difficult task to raise our children in the world and yet ensure they don’t become of the world.

I never intended to be the mother of just one. As the oldest of six preacher’s kids, I was well-schooled in baby-sitting, nurturing and cooking for a whole tribe. I married, taught school for four years and then became pregnant. Nine months later Jason Paul Kent burst into our lives on a Sunday morning in October. Though the labor […]
