There's nothing quite like the comfort of knowing that you're not losing your mind. Or if you are, that you're not the only one.
I remember feeling this relief last year while doing research for a book. I'd come across the yearly survey from the American Psychological Association that "measures attitudes and perceptions of stress among the general public." According to the report, women report higher levels of stress than men, as well as higher rates of stress than previous generations. As I reviewed the data, I saw my life laid bare via percentages, graphs, and color-coded pie charts.
As an author, pastor's wife, and mother to three active kids, my day has very little margin. I regularly feel overwhelmed, overworked, and underappreciated. My husband, on the other hand, seems to move effortlessly through his day. The difference is most obvious at bedtime. He lays his head on the pillow and drifts off to sleep; I toss and turn, worrying about all the things I failed to do. I calculate the number of calories I've consumed, try to remember whether I emailed my editor back, and wonder if the rash on my 10-year-old's chest is simply a reaction to seasonal allergies. No use waiting until morning; I get up to google it. more >>

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will have their final showdown in the last presidential debate tonight at 9 p.m. ET in Las Vegas. Both campaigns will have a final shot at convincing the tens of millions of American voters expected to tune in why he/she should be the 45th president of the United States.
The third debate will take place at the University of Nevada – Las Vegas and have a similar format to the first presidential debate – six timed segments of approximately 15 minutes each. The final debate will be moderated by Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday, who will ask questions on the following six topics: the economy, immigration, national debt and entitlements, the Supreme Court, foreign problems and "fitness to be president."

The debate will take place amid the Trump campaign's loss of momentum and support in recent weeks after a damaging leaked hot mic video of Trump bragging to former "Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush about trying but failing to have sex with a married woman, and groping and kissing women without their consent that has both conservatives and liberals up in arms about his self-confessed actions being sexual assault. more >>
Little did two millennial men know that when they independently Googled "Christians struggling with homosexuality" in utter desperation that a band of brothers would be forged because of their unwanted sexual desires.
Tom Zuniga, 29, and Elliott Gladwin, 28, who have experienced same-sex attractions since their youth, didn't know each other whatsoever when they first entered that phrase into a search engine in 2008 in their respective homes in states miles apart. But by God's providence they ended up meeting after they stumbled upon a Xanga blogring where several Christian men with the same issue were sharing their stories and struggles.
Those shared stories and the friendships that formed would prove to be more meaningful and healing than either one of them could have ever imagined. more >>
