Even the strongest relationships are strained during the transition to parenthood. Lack of sleep, never-ending housework and new fiscal concerns can lead to profound stress and a decline in marital satisfaction – all of which affect baby’s care. Not surprisingly, 69% of new parents experience conflict, disappointment and hurt feelings. Couples can learn how to prepare for life with their new baby and how to be the best parenting team possible by finding new ways to strengthen their relationship, and foster their baby’s development during this challenging time.

The FIGHT continues...I am understanding that this NEW generation (some of which) are not concerned with what is important to their child's ability to learn while they are in school. As many of you know that a few weeks ago our son was FORCED to learn about a Rapper named "Cheif Keith" and his personal life of having trouble with the LAW and Child Support among other things...NOW, some of the students have out launched ANGER in efforts to Promote "Cheif Keith" and they view him as a god....Will this cause a huge MAJOR lawsuit against the School Board or are the Parents at home speaking about this topic among the children, which angers the child enough to pick fights and arguments, this will land a child in Juvenile Hall...Well it is time to Chat!

With his new camp friends the ‘quirky’ Jackie, the ‘dour’ Lenore and the ‘lonely’ Wheeze, Delano seeks to uncover the sinister true purpose of the camp, as well as learn about his missing parents who abandoned him when he was three, his kidnapped uncle as well as his own self and destiny.

Please join me Tuesday Dec. 1st at 9:30 am CST as I talk about The Holy Spirit. We can not walk with Jesus unless He does it through us. He is the imparter, Teacher, Counselor, Revealer, and the very power and might of God. I'm going to talk a little about the Fire of The Spirit, and how He loves to give us wisdom and revelation and so much more. He is the outpouring. He is the One who gives dreams, and visions, and prophesy. He is the prophetic. And the spirit of prophesy is the testimony of Jesus. He is the action in the Book of Acts.Hope you can join. ~ Char
Do you like to travel? Where do you like to go? Did you travel places in your mind when you were a chid? If so, where did you go? Was traveling in our minds our escape from the adultworld of illusions? Did we really long to grow up to be like our parents and their friends in the their make-believe world of illusions or did we like to create fun?
Traveling causes us to go out of our comfort zone or to leave the warzone we did not like being part of.
It's never been more important to teach your children well. What America needs today are parents who don't just say they value these virtues but who live them and passionately and boldly teach them to their children. It's up to me and you and every parent in America to make the necessary changes to give our children the opportunity to change the world. We do that by instilling good character traits in them so that they will be capable of being the adults our world needs - Korie Robertson. Many parents want to see positive character traits in their children but wonder how to instill them. As stars of the hit reality-TV show Duck Dynasty, Korie and Willie Robertson receive loads of letters and messages from fans asking how they've raised such good kids. As they will tell you, 'it isn't always easy, but raising kids with good character is possible.' A straight-forward, practical approach to parenting, Strong and Kind helps you identify the character traits you want to see in your children and gives you the tools for putting them in place. Besides strength and kindness other character traits include: Self-Control, Honesty, Compassion, Patience, Joyfulness, Loyalty, Humility. By modeling positive traits, with confidence, consistency, creativity, unity, and in truth and love, you can increase the chances of your kids catching on. At the end of the day, the Duck Dynasty stars say the most important thing you can do for your children is what they do at the end of every episode: hand them over to God in prayer.
Sherwin Forte is on of the six original members of the Black Panther Party. He is traveling to Charlotte to introduce the documentary, The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution.
The BPP originated in Oakland, California, by founders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale. The Original six members of the Black Panthers included Elbert “Big Man” Howard, Sherman Forte, Reggie Forte, Little Bobby Hutton, and Newton and Seale. They adopted the Black Panther symbol from an independent political party established the previous year by Black residents of Lowndes County, Alabama. The Panthers also supported the Black Power movement, which stressed racial dignity and self-reliance.
