  • In honor of World Breastfeeding Month, the Kentucky Department for Public Health stresses the importance of providing support for breastfeeding families.

    According to DPH, mothers have more success breastfeeding their babies when they have adequate support from healthcare providers, family, friends and their community. The slogan “Breastfeeding Support: Stay Connected” focuses on the importance of the connection between mother and baby, as well as the importance of having support.

  • Conflict usually begins when we don’t get what we want. It almost always begins with selfish motives.

    Absalom wanted to be king. The only way he could do that was to take the kingdom away from his father, David (II Samuel 15:1-12). 

    You know you are in conflict when you are daydreaming for something you want – a thing, a position or a viewpoint – and it is always connected to feelings of deep-seated hatred, or being in disagreement with someone in order to point out differences, especially when compared.

  • God is love (I John 4:8). Love is part of the very being and nature of God. It is also a valid test of our sonship.

    If we are united to God through faith in Christ, we share his nature and that nature is love.

    A believer in Christ, who shares the nature of his father, will naturally practice love, because that is the nature of God. Our love for the brethren is proof that we are his children. Throughout the New Testament we are encouraged to love one another.

    Jesus said, “By this shall all men know that you are my disciples” (John 13:35).

  • According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, about 7,500 lives have been saved by the proper use of child restraints during the past 20 years. Yet, motor vehicle crashes still remain the number one killer of children ages 4 to 14 in America. The reason? Too often it is the improper use or non-use of child safety seats and booster seats.

  • James, which is probably the most practical book in the New Testament, tells us how to be wise with our money. In James 5:1-6 He speaks of the method we use to get money, the reason to save our money and the way to spend our money.
    Some people think that the Bible teaches, “Money is the root of all evil.” But Paul says in I Timothy 6:10, “The love of money is the root of all evil ….”
