Cooped-Up Inside with Little Kids?

We all want spring to get here. I can’t keep track of all the people at Calvary who have slipped on the ice and had serious injuries. On top of that, it can become depressing being inside all the time. And for parents of young children, it can get especially crazy. Here is a great article written about that by a Biblical Counselor with CCEF, Alasdair Groves. Read it yourself, and pass it on to any parents of young children who may be helped by it.

But being a cynic is at odds with my identity as a forgiven follower and child of God.  Paul Maxwell, in his insightful article “Putting Off Cynicism”, helps us understand what it means to be cynical, the dangers of being cynical, and the road away from it. If you’re in your 20s or 30s, you should especially read it.
