The biggest pain point for many parents is—you guessed it—smartphones. Should our kids own them? If so, how do we keep them from owning our kids?

He radically changed direction when his Christian faith became the bedrock of his life. In 1985, the charity acquired a ship, outfitted it and now for decades a small fleet of Friend Ships has served the poor in nations worldwide.
We all engage with people of other faiths and worldviews--the real question is whether or not we're doing a good or bad job being a witness to Christ.
