Parent Like You Mean It 17: Give ‘Em H€&%!!

PLYMI Square

There is one thing in this world that may very well be the single most important thing we can give to our children.

Carty’s Contemporary Classics: Take A Look At The Snake, part 1

Carty Thumbnail

The first time sin happened was not in the Garden of Eden. The first time it happened was when Lucifer wanted to set his throne above the stars of God. God had made Lucifer His most beautiful creature, but Lucifer wasn’t happy being number two. Now, sin had never entered God’s creation before, and it shuttered when somebody said, “No” to God.

But lately, judging by many of the comments that I have received, it appears that my audience has expanded to people whom I hadn’t originally intended.
