Simply Faithful: Add more Bible reading with... Ever since I can remember, I wanted to be a parent. I knew it would be rewarding, but I had no idea it would be so humbling — that there would be so much I wanted to teach and so little I knew. That’s why I appreciate books like “A Spoonful of Grace.” In it, author Annette Hubbell has compiled more than 350 prayers and Bible verses that are meant to be shared before a family meal and discussed.“‘A Spoonful of Grace’ is also great for [...]

Suzette Martinez Standring: Overcoming labels Today certain groups have come to mean a form of sickness, depending on who’s slapping on the label: Pro-Trump, anti-Trump, Republicans, Democrats, Christians, Muslims. People are under attack. It’s not just religion, it’s political polemics.The tongue, such a tiny organ, yet capable of setting entire forests on fire.Talk that convinces (choose your team) that all opposition is evil. Talking heads talking trash 24/7.It’s all good until it isn’t. [...]

Is there a store that sells buns in a pack of four? Help, please!— Geneva Lawrence. Burlington, North CarolinaA: Hamburger and hot dog buns from major [...]

A small miracle happened recently in my family.During a dinner at an Italian restaurant, my niece Julia — soon to be 10 — shocked us all by asking whether she could order an adult meal of linguini with clam sauce.The people at nearby tables surely must have wondered what was happening when the gasps rose from our corner of the room.This child has survived more than 9 years on a steady diet of oatmeal, Cheerios, bread and butter, and pasta with tomato sauce (sometimes [...]

Lost in Suburbia: I know an old coffee that... Most couples have cute little endearing pet names for each other. Sweetie. Honey. Schmoopy-Boopy-Snuggie-Woogems.My husband also has an endearing name for me. He calls me “Two Sips.” This comes from my tendency to make myself a cup of coffee, take two sips, and then absentmindedly leave the cup somewhere in the house.“Hey Two Sips,” he would say, entering the kitchen with an armful of old coffee mugs. “I collected your stash.”I would glower [...]

WHAT'S UP DOC? Drowning Q: Summer is almost here, and I am wondering how big a concern is drowning? A: Drowning is dying due to lack of oxygen from submersion in a liquid.

Worldwide up to 500,000 people drown each year, with 4000 and 6500 of these in [...]
