It's important for people to help support the elderly and the helpless, said evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham.
In an advice column published Friday, Rev. Graham was asked by a person who works at a nursing home why people tend to not visit their elders.
"I've worked in a nursing home for almost 20 years, and the hardest part of my job is watching people dump their relatives here and then never come back to visit them. Why are people so insensitive? Even if someone has dementia they still deserve our love, don't they?" inquired the person. more >>
I remember the night before my son was born. Only I wasn't there. I was in a prayer room.
I remember because it was a powerfully sweet night; later, I would write down every moment in a journal. I was leading prayer while my friend, Daphne, sang behind me with only a few people in the room. Like all of our prayer sets, I was praying for life.

Anger is a common problem and we all have opportunities to get angry. Sometimes people get hurt and instead of dealing with their anger, they hang on to it and become bitter, hard-hearted, and miserable.
Living in anger is like banging your head against the wall, so to speak, because it keeps you stuck, doing something that is never going to work because it isn't God's plan or the way He does things.

Uncontrolled anger hinders our prayers, makes us miserable, causes mental illness and can even make us physically sick. These are just a few problems anger causes. more >>
In a limited theatrical release, "The Fight Within" is set to be an action-packed mashup of faith, fighting and romance.
In the film, Logan Chandler is a rising star in the world of mixed martial arts, but when his father, an MMA champion, dies while training him, Logan leaves the ring unsure of who he is anymore. He finds romance with a young woman of deep faith and seeks to overcome a troubled past and establish a new life. His new faith is tested when a local MMA professional — whose only losing fight was to Logan — forces him back into the cage.
"Faith films tend to draw faith audiences," Jim Davis, executive producer and screenwriter said in a statement given to The Christian Post. "This movie should also engage people with no sense of faith because inner struggle is universal. A cage and a fight are spot-on metaphors to show a young man coming to terms with who he is and what life brings." more >>

Perfume. One spray from a perfume bottle can pleasantly permeate a whole room. Have you ever wondered how perfume is made?
There's a few ways. One way is to gather flowers, wash them, dry them, and crush them. After the finely-crushed petals are mixed with distilled water and alcohol, the result is poured into a beautiful bottle. Another way to make perfume is to boil and simmer the rinsed petals. The flower mixture is then poured through cheesecloth to remove the impurities, allowing only the purified floral water to pass through. So to make perfume, you have to crush or boil flowers. To create the beautiful aroma, it first must go through an intense process that involves heating or crushing. more >>
