God’s Guide for Parents

Gloria’s father was abusive and mean.  She recalls that as a child, her only emotion toward her father was fear.  Today, as a forty-year-old woman, she still has trouble believing God could possibly want good for her.  That He can truly be trusted.

How to Handle the Silent Treatment

by Harold and Bette Gillogly Whether you are the Silence-er or the Silence-ee, when silence is used as a weapon, everybody gets hurt!  Norm Wright once said that more marriages today are dying from silence than from violence.  He’s right.  Silence can be very flammable and feeds the fires of conflict. Do you use silence […]
