Real life American Sniper widow Taya Kyle recalls the heartbreaking moment she was forced to tell her two young children that their Navy SEAL father, Chris Kyle, had been killed in an interview set to air on ABC this week.
Taya Kyle, 40, recently opened up about her tragic loss in a sit-down with "Good Morning America" host Robin Roberts and the interview is said to be candid, heartbreaking and eye-opening. The war widow lost her husband Chris, widely considered to be the most lethal sniper in U.S. history for having 160 confirmed kills, two years ago and she recalled the moment that their two children learned the tragic news.
Last year, Liberian national Thomas Eric Duncan became the first Ebola victim to die on American soil and six months later his family is still trying to make sense of his untimely death amid unanswered questions. Louise Troh, the 54-year-old former fiancée of Duncan, recently recalled how the deadly virus ruined her life and left her traumatized.
Forty-two-year-old Duncan lived with the former nursing assistant and her five children inside their Dallas apartment for one week after he traveled to the U.S. from Liberia on Sept. 20, but that all changed the moment he was diagnosed with Ebola on Sept. 30.
Troh claims she was completely shunned by the community, mischaracterized in the media and forced into a 21-day quarantine that would leave her traumatized and battling anxiety. more >>
NEW YORK — Christian author Joe Battaglia breaks down the "intellectual dishonesty of political correctness" in his new book The Politically Incorrect Jesus and he recently stopped by CP Voice to discuss his latest book further.
The writer, who is also the founder and president of Renaissance Communications and has had a hand in promoting such films as "The Passion" and "God's Not Dead" feels Christians need to rise above the politics and polemics of the day as Jesus did. He also explained that no cause should trump the mission of Christ in a Christian's life.
"As I say in the book, whenever we raise the flag higher than the cross we have a problem," Battaglia told CP Voice. "People get confused. Any flag or any cause. [Because] Christ said when He gets lifted up, not when a political party gets lifted up, not when an idea gets lifted up, not even when His best representatives get lifted up, but when He gets lifted up He will draw all men to Himself." more >>
New York Times bestselling author of the "Angels Walking" series Karen Kingsbury is making a Scriptural argument for the existence of angels on the heels of releasing her latest book.
Released earlier this month, "Chasing Sunsets" is the second book in the popular "Angels Walking" series, which features angels at work in desperate matters of the heart. While Kingsbury supports the existence of angels, the author acknowledged the controversy caused in some Christian communities over the topic during an interview with The Christian Post this week. Furthermore, Kingsbury rejected the idea that angels are deceased loved ones or that they deserve our prayers, citing Scripture.
"The Bible is pretty clear on angels in that they come from God His army, He is the one we worship, He is the one to be prayed to - not the angels," Kingsbury explained. "Angels can't be our dead mom or dad. We can hope our dead loved ones can see us from heaven and that they're praying for us, I think you could make a Scriptural argument for that, but they're not angels." more >>

"I just feel like it made my faith that much more real," McLaughlin told The Christian Post during an interview on Wednesday, adding, "I don't have any regrets about doing the show." more >>
