Not a Day Care: Why the College Snowflake Melts So Easily

Another day, another college snowflake melts down over chalk on a sidewalk or an unsanctioned opinion being expressed. Why? I had the privilege of collaborating with Dr. Everett Piper on the new book Not a Daycare: The Devastating Consequences of Abandoning Truth. You may recall his blog post that struck a chord with so many: “This Is a University, This Is Not a Daycare.”  As the President of Oklahoma Wesleyan University,  he offers an insider’s perspective on higher education, doing...

Evangelicals Respond to Rob Bell Attack on Bible and Family

Rob Bell, controversial author of Love Wins and The Zimzum of Love, has been calling Christians to accept and embrace people who choose to live a homosexual lifestyle.

Scripture is no longer relevant for Rob on contemporary social issues, because “it quotes letters from 2,000 years ago” as its best defense. Rob Bell’s “chronological snobbery” simultaneously reveals... Read more

One Proven Way to Control Technology Overload

Scripture admonishes us to “think on these things,” to “meditate day and night” on truth, and to “study to show ourselves approved unto God.” And yet, the very technology that made it easier than ever to do so, can also make it harder than ever to do so—if we don’t control technology overload. Our easy access to information and connection creates an “always on” lifestyle that leaves little time for introspection, meditation, and the sort of intentional thinking required for... Read more

Is Shame the New Silent Killer in America?

Protesters were everywhere. I recently pulled into a private event for one of our Georgia Congressmen to find sign-holders yelling out chants of “SHAME! SHAME! SHAME!” The signs were held high and venom was pouring from their lips, and as soon as I was recognized to be a woman, the shouting got a little louder. Apparently, I was supposed to be ashamed for attending an event for one of our Congressmen, because somewhere in the recesses of the Left’s mind,... Read more

Campus Outreach: A Story of Abundant Faith

Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to keep walking by faith when you’ve almost reached your destination. In spite of God’s previous blessings, why is it the mountain in front of us in the here and now always seems to be the biggest one we’ve ever faced?

Christina Grimmie: The Story Behind the Other Orlando Shooting

Every now and then, we cross paths with someone whose life story is simply profound.  My friend Dr. Mark McDonough is just such a person.
