Sleeping our rights away

Imagine if you will, that you own a home in South Florida that’s not your primary residence. One day, a person comes along and takes over the house … out in the open, for all to see. They turn on all the lights, bake cookies for the neighbors and enroll their children in the school down the street. Maybe your neighbors assume that you’ve sold them the house, and they simply go on with their day. The squatters residing in your property even pay your property taxes! And they do so for seven uninterrupted years. If this little dream sequence […]

They go even further than simply teaching the three R’s: Readin’, ‘ritin’ and ‘rithmetic. At Grace Place in Golden Gate City, Fla., volunteers strive to teach at-risk and impoverished children and families the three basic L’s: Literacy, language and life skills.  “Golden Gate City had been identified as the biggest pocket of need outside of Immokalee,” in Southwest Florida, explains Stephanie Munz Campbell, the director of Grace Place. “It’s a very under-served area.” After 20 years in Christian education, Stephanie felt God’s pull to reach out to this area of great need.

Unaware of child sex-trafficking problem

Most Americans, including far too many government officials, have no idea that children under the age of 18 are being shipped from state to state as child prostitutes, according to a report from an anti-sex trafficking organization. In fact, an estimated 100,000 American children under 18 years of age are victimized through prostitution every year and children rented for sex acts might be raped 6,000 times over the course of five years. In addition, the United States should be – but is not – listed on the “Tier 2” watch list in the State Department’s Trafficking in Persons Report. Those […]

Ingratitude:?An ‘heir-born’ virus

Have your kids caught the virus? It’s the most contagious and one of the most dangerous viruses a person can catch, and it is “heir-born.” Most of our culture has it. Are your kids negative and ungrateful? Sometimes, kids can be that way because they’re still children. But, many times they act ungrateful because they are very impressionable. It doesn’t take much to cave into the impressions that this culture perpetuates that more is better. They can catch it from the culture but they can also learn it from their parents. The virus of ingratitude is caught in homes where […]
