They are probably the only vegetables that don't make children squirm … because they only talk, sing, dance and don't have to be eaten. Now, kids can add party to that list of things they can do with these vegetables.
The popular Christian children's animated series, VeggieTales, will be hosting a family party in honor of their 20 years of teaching valuable life lessons to children from a Christian perspective at the World Changers Church in College Park, Ga., on Saturday Mar. 30, and everyone is invited.
"Children of all ages will enjoy a high energy song and dance spectacular filled with classic silly songs like 'The Hairbrush Song,' 'His Cheeseburger,' 'I Love My Lips' and 'Song of Cebu'," note the organizers of the party in a recent media release. more >>
Political mudslingers looking for dirt to discredit famed neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson after his candid speech criticizing government policies and political correctness at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C. just over a week ago, are probably going to need a miracle finding any major ammunition.
Carson who issued a warning shot to his would-be attackers was responding to a question asked by an audience member during a one-hour Sean Hannity special billed Saving America on Fox News last Friday night.

In an effort to equip children with answers to questions about God and solidify their faith as they grow older, Christian theologian Dr. William Lane Craig has a series of children's books titled, "What is God Like?"
Brian Auten, who is the director of Reasonable Faith Belfast and founder of Apologetics 315, announced on his blog recently that Craig's books in the series "are quite amazing in their simple presentation of deep truths about God. (My own 5-year-old girl loves them and can explain what it means for God to be spirit and even what self-sufficient means, among other things.)"
The series of ten illustrated booklets are being released two at a time about every month. Publishers say the books are designed to help parents teach Christian truth to their children and answer some of their deepest questions about God. more >>
There are three things that all creative people struggle with, says Pastor Sam Luce, who is the Utica Campus Pastor of Redeemer Church in Utica, N.Y.
Luce, who was the children's pastor for the past 14 years at Redeemer before becoming a campus pastor, wrote recently in his blog that his church began a Creative Community Night.

Lin hosted a gala Thursday evening heading into the NBA's All-Star Weekend for "The Making a Difference" project by his Jeremy Lin Foundation.

Move over Dr. Oz, it looks like Dr. Benjamin Carson is America's favorite new physician and the people are loving his political incorrectness, too.
After throwing political caution to the wind in his candid speech at the National Prayer Breakfast last Thursday, renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Benjamin Carson of Johns Hopkins Hospital is riding his popularity with high sales of his books and being flooded with donations to his Carson Scholars Fund celebrating "intellectual superstars" in America's schools.
