Q. My wife and I go to a small church where we tithe. The church is continually asking for contributions to other charities and causes, and we don’t have the money to give to them all while we’re sticking to our budget and getting out of debt. The worst part is that we get pretty aggressive pushback when we say no. What can we do?

A System for Prayer

The diagram apparently was crafted over 1000 years ago - part of a book that was placed on sale by Manhattan’s Les Enluminures Gallery, a dealer in medieval manuscripts, a book written on vellum with a rather unique first page, according to a report on the Religion News Service website, which likens the circular diagram to a game board.

“Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.” –J.R.R. Tolkien


There are few things in life that bring more joy than holding a newborn baby.  The way they look up at you and the look in their eyes is one of love, innocence, and trust.  As the old hymn says, “How sweet to hold a newborn baby, and feel the pride and joy he gives; but greater still the calm assurance: This child can face uncertain days because He lives.”

Coping with Family Stress

Most of us have had the experience of family life becoming hard to manage at one time or another due to finances, career difficulties, demands of children, or marital conflict.  The tension in the family builds and children begin to squabble about everything, nothing gets done, and you feel guilty for not being able to function in complete bliss.  Does this sound familiar?

Parenting Well in a Digital World

Even at the best of times there is nothing simple about raising children. But throw in a million new technologies—new devices and social networks and apps—and things get far more complicated still. This is every parent’s challenge today.

He Didn’t Say, “I Told You So”

In the 1980’s Randy Travis wrote and recorded a hauntingly beautiful song called, “I Told You So.” It was very popular, hitting #1 on the country charts. The song describes the anxiety of a man as he ponders what his girlfriend (wife?) might say if he apologizes and offers to come back to her. He wonders if she would forgive him for leaving and attempt to find the closeness they once knew. But he is afraid that she might say, “I told you so, but you had to go.” She might tell him that she found someone new and that he would never break her heart again. The singer does not resolve the question, and you know he will only find out if he faces the one he has wronged.


RRJ: Many people can relate to the role “going to church” played in your early exposure to Christianity.  What were some of the benefits you received being raised in the church?

The Art of Work by Jeff Goins

There is a lot to like about Jeff Goins’ new book The Art of Work, and there is a lot to commend in it. For those reasons I really wanted, and even tried, to love it. Unfortunately, though, it cannot overcome a couple of significant, exasperating flaws.

Ancient Landmarks or Outdated Traditions?

There’s no doubt the culture we live in throughout the United States and our River Region has and is changing rapidly.  We must ask ourselves, “Is the change positive or negative?”
