While American involvement in church may be on the decline these days, what remains of great interest to many is the End Times and what the Bible has to say about it.
Items like "Blood Moons," the Rapture, and predictions over specific dates for the end have captivated countless people in the United States and the world at large. Yet what do people mean when they talk about the Rapture or Millennialism? What do theologians have to say about the Tribulation, the Second Coming, and the final Judgment?
Billy Hallowell, faith editor with The Blaze, recently released a book detailing the diverse theological opinions on the End Times, titled The Armageddon Code: One Journalist's Quest for End-Times Answers. more >>

I suppose only mothers could pull off such a feat. After all, who has more sensitivity and understanding than a mother?
According to Hallmark, Mother's Day is the third-largest card-sending holiday in the United States, with 118 million cards exchanged annually. And that shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. more >>
On National Geographic's last episode of "The Story of God" with Morgan Freeman, the Hollywood actor saves the best for last with his sentimental endeavor to discover the prospect of miracles.
Freeman kicks off the final installment of "The Story of God," titled "Miracles," just as he began every episode, by sharing from his own experience.

We caregivers see a lot of doctors. Many of us can perform tasks that used to be relegated to licensed medical personnel, and for that vast number of caregiving mothers, "Dr. Mom" has taken on a new levels.
Caregivers learn a lot about healthcare, but application of that knowledge for our own health — is a different story. Most caregivers regularly take someone else to see a physician — but when was the last time we saw ours?
Sometimes we get so tired of taking someone else to a doctor's office, that the thought of going to another one (or taking time off work ... again!), well, it's just too much.

Multi-award-winning artist and songwriter Matthew West is known for sharing others' stories through his music, and in an exclusive first look, the singer introduces the true story of Robert Muir, a former drug addict whose transformation inspired "Grace Wins."
West wrote "Grace Wins," on his latest album Live Forever, after hearing the story of Robert Muir who, in 2014, attended a West concert with his mother and at the time was heavily addicted to heroin and in desperate need of help. Muir knew he needed to make a life change and during the show he found out about popwe, a non-profit organization that West co-founded with his father, Pastor Joe West.
When Muir returned home, his mother wrote to West and explained how his music impacted her son. Soon after, Muir was contacted by West's father and popwe connected him to Teen Challenge, a Christian-based drug and alcohol recovery program that helped Muir with the tuition for the 14-month recovery program. more >>
