I think you know what scripture is coming next. 'Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto to.'

However, it did come out in court that Kevin had an "explosive anger" problem. Family members and two psychologists attested to this. One even gave a name for it; while the other agreed Kevin had an anger problem but was unwilling to give it a label. Both psychologists agreed that Kevin showed no signs of mental illness.

With a biblical understanding of “truth” – a word used at least 234 times in God’s Word – we will actually want to seek it out in every area of belief, attitude, purpose and conduct of life
The implications of"what if I am right" can be enough to send a parent over the edge. But you have to remember something, usually your parent meter is right. There are very few times when a parent suspects something to be wrong...only to find out everything is just fine and dandy. So you need to act upon your gut feeling. The first thing to do is look for the signs that come with teenage drug abuse.

Downsizing can be emotionally draining and difficult. Remember to keep God in the process as well, by praying for strength and confidence in your decisions. Keep a support system close by and don't rush through the process.
I was nine years old the night that I told my mother, for the second time, what my stepfather had been doing to me when she wasn't home.

Jackson asks what will happen when I die, when my husband dies, when my mom dies. He asks where my Grandma Marjorie is, as he has heard so much about her but never met her. We talk candidly about heaven and it gives me permission to remember what the Bible says about heaven, and to get excited about it.
Consider cutting out sugar from your diet. When we're young, we can safely eat those pastries, ice cream sundaes so long as we work off the excess calories. As we age, however, our metabolism changes and we must work to keep fat from accumulating.

I remember going to a restaurant with my husband and our two year old son. The waiter had brought our food and we were just settling down to enjoy a scrumptious meal when something that looked like a baby bottle went whistling past our heads and hit the wall at the far end of the room.
