When God Has You on a Short Leash

I learn a lot about God—from my dogs.

Last Saturday I took our Morkie for a walk. He’s 12 pounds of stubborn, fearless, and a little bit stupid.

5 Things Every Parent Needs to Know as Kids Go Back to School This Year”

As I talk with parents who are in the process of sending kids back to school, I consistently hear how overwhelmed families feel about returning to the classroom.
