On July 13, 2011, Laura Jean Ackerson of Kinston, North Carolina, went to pick up her two toddler sons. It would be the last time she was seen alive...
Two weeks later, detectives searching for the missing mother made a gruesome discovery on the shores of Oyster Creek near Richmond, Texas—the dismembered body parts of a young woman whom they were able to identify as Laura Ackerson.
Laura’s ex, Grant Hayes—the father of her two sons—and his wife, Amanda, the mother of his newborn daughter, both pointed the finger at each other as the one guilty of murdering Laura, cutting up her body, and then transporting and disposing of the remains.
This is the hauntingly true story of a devoted mother, a disturbed couple, and how these horrific events came to pass.. BITTER REMAINS-A Custody battle, A Gruesome Crime and the Mother Who Paid the Ultimate Price-Diane Fanning

1. 2 PETER 3:18 -- "But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and forever. Amen." That is the summation of what Peter had to say in his second epistle.
2. 1 PETER 2:2 -- "As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that ye may grow by it." Peter began and ended his very practical epistles with an injunction for Christians to grow. Spiritual growth is basic to the life of a believer, just as physical growth is basic to the life of any person. God commands Christians to grow. In our study of spiritual growth, we want to examine what it means to mature as a believer.
1 Peter 1-5
1Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. 2Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.

Sibling rivalry is common in families where there is more than one child. But teaching children how to get along with their brothers and sisters is essential for teaching them how to get along with the rest of the world. How do we help children adjust to a new child in the family? How do we prevent feelings of jealousy and resentment? How do we as parents make sure we're not showing favoritism to one child and neglecting other children? When children are constantly bickering and tattling, that's a sign they feel they need to compete for parents' attention. How do we instill the value of equal importance of all people in the minds of our children? What if one child has different physical or emotional challenges that requires extra attention? How do parents make sure all children feel included in the family?
When a new baby arives, the older children often feel resentment. Parent pay so much attention to the new born that theolder brother or sister may feel they have been replaced. The way we teach siblings to get along is critical to our children learning how to get along with others in the society - how to share, how to cooperate, how to halp each other. When children are bickering and tattling excessively, that could be a signal they feel they must compete for love and attention from parents. How do you make sure each child is equally loved? How do you avoid playing favoritism? What if one child has special emotional or physical challenges? Today we look at a few parenting situations in which the adults could perhaps handle things differently in order to change the behavior of their children.
