Easter is a little later than usual this year, but it’s coming up fast. I’d like to offer a suggestion for your annual celebrations before you finish sorting the grocery list, which I think we...

Seriously?!,.

I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore, choose life, that both you and your descendants may live. Dt. 30:19 It is interesting how words and statements significantly convey greater meaning and importance by adding a...

 

This Side of the Pond

Britain has never been great at winter sports. When you lack much in the way of serviceable snow, it’s hard to pilot a luge in much of a hurry. So it was no surprise to hear that we’d made it...

 

Dear NP

Dear NP, I have been a smoker for over 20 years. I talked to my doctor, and he wants me to take Chantix. What is the safest way to stop? What are the side effects of the different “stop-smoking...

This Side of the Pond

I’m here this week with the refreshing news that Britain’s prime minister is just as dodgy as we’ve always suspected he might be. Floppy haired and charming he may appear, but Boris Johnson is once again facing the ire of a nation. This is...

 

This SIde of the Pond

Adoption

Having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will. (Ephesians 1:5) Many people, without thinking much about it, make a wide distinction between adopted children and “real” children,...
