Those of you with little ones will appreciate Michelle Lesley for writing The Mailbag: What should we tell our kids about Santa Claus?

If you’ve never visited Leslie A’s blog, Growing 4 Life, please start now. Her article entitled Fighting Germs demonstrates Leslie’s passion for teaching women to develop discernment.

As persecution rises, we need to understand the root of the problem.

Reflecting on the recent death of Alex Trebek, Sharon Sampson contributes What Is…Truth? to the Gentle Reformation blog. She reminds us of basic questions and their Biblical answers as we contemplate life after death.
