The Heaven giveaway is now closed. Check back on May 12 for the next giveaway.

On Valentine's Day 2007 my husband of 25 years died very unexpectedly on his 50th birthday. As you can imagine I was and still am devastated. His journey to our eternal home led me in search of a book so that I might study and become more knowledgeable about Heaven. At ...

Shut Up and Compete: Putting a Gag on Olympic Athletes

Beijing OlympicsI'll never forget hearing nearly seven years ago that China had been selected as the host country for the 2008 Olympics. Now the time has come.

Planned ParenthoodA friend of ours was recently job hunting and came across an advertised opening at Planned Parenthood. Though she wasn't interested in the job there, she was interested in the terminology used in Planned Parenthood's self-description that follows
