Could you replace your son or daughter with a robot? Of course not. But several companies are already planning to do just that. Right now corporations all over the world are scheming to replace your child with Artificial Intelligence (AI). Three weeks ago, a former student of mine, who just sold his first tech startup...

Jane Austen was a famous English novelist known primarily for her works such as Persuasion, Emma, Sense and Sensibility, and of course, Pride & Prejudice. These novels are some of the best of her time, but there is far more to them and Miss Austen than meets the eye. Drawing from her own life, Austen...

“There are ages in which it is possible to woo the reader; there are others when something more drastic is necessary. . . . to the hard of hearing you shout, and for the almost blind you draw large and startling figures.”[1] Flannery O’Connor Increasingly lauded in literary and now Christian circles, Flannery O’Connor’s art...

Tom plays golf at the same club as me. He works in finance for Hershey Foods, the folks who invented chocolate. Tom’s car has a bumper sticker you’ll appreciate. It simply says $18,000,000,000 and that sticker is on top of one that says $17,000,000,000. He told me he has a new one to put on...

Can you answer this question about the Bible?

Hands holding Bible on a wooden desk background.

Looking over the homeschool marketplace, I would make two observations. It is dominated by Christians. They don’t value learning the Bible, based on the money they spend on curriculum. So, I asked some pastors and Christian leaders, “Why is it important for children to learn the content of the Bible?” This is not an attempt...

Someone’s Precious Baby

It is a time when our focus is shifted to education, specifically on raising awareness about learning disabilities and the achievements those with these differences have accomplished.

Another School Year Begins

It’s Labor Day, and Laurie and I find ourselves in a ritual I expect many easterners experience—returning from the “shore,” as we call it. We were in Cape May, New Jersey, for the day and now are crawling home at 10 mph. This is not our routine, our ritual, but it’s evident that it is...

My Wonder Years

Pepin.Kaye

One sunny April morning my boys and I, along with eight strangers, climbed aboard an inflatable raft on the windward coast of Oahu. It was a Zodiac – the sturdy rubber raft that was birthed after the sinking of the Titanic and eventually became popular with the military. We had been living in Hawaii for...

woman-crazy hair

AHHHHH! August! What does that mean? Panic? Pain? Squeeze in a few more sunny days at the beach? It’s the stark reality that this train is running down the track and careening to the start of another school year. Are you ready? Am I ready? No … I never feel ready. For me, August seems...

Government… The How & Which

Dr. Troy Gibson

The question “should there be this law” and “must there be this law” is not a trivial game of semantics. It is foundational to whether we will be a republican styled polity or not. The Constitution does not permit or require every law you like. Nor does it prohibit every law you hate. If you...
