Most people dream of a fairytale love story like in the movies, and a new video shows newly divorced worship leader Israel Houghton and his girlfriend Adrienne Bailon acting out a scene from a cult classic.
Mainstream star Bailon took to various social media platforms to express her excitement on being nominated at this year's Emmy Awards for her daytime talk show, "The Real." Along with her series of post, the entertainer shared a video of herself and her new beau after the night was over, reenacting their own versions of the dance scene in the movie "Dirty Dancing."
The well-dressed couple, looking as free as ever, dramatically danced to the '80s classic, "(I've Had) The Time of My Life." Houghton held Bailon's waist as she whipped her hair back and forth in a dance routine Bailon labeled #cleandancing. See the Instagram video below: more >>
Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship spoke on how a marriage can be revived, restored and resurrected, and especially how wives can have their own husbands become new men. Laurie also interviewed his wife, Cathe on the wife's role in marriage and how women are different from men.
"Before you can convert your husband into a new man, maybe you need to think about becoming a new woman," Greg Laurie said in his message, which was part of the Home Sweet Home series.
The Bible talks about the role of the wife in marriage, he added, and read 1 Peter 3:1-4, "Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. Do not let your adornment be merely outward — arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel — rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God." more >>

To have a God-focused and God-filled marriage, both spouses must "see [their] marriage as a gift from God." more >>
Today's liberals have betrayed the principles of free thought and open-mindedness they proclaim to profess by using "authoritarian control" to silence conservatives and others who don't share their opinions, conservative author Kim R. Holmes said Wednesday.
Holmes, a historian of political movements and a distinguished fellow at the Heritage Foundation, was the featured speaker at a Heritage Foundation discussion in Washington, D.C. that focused on his recently released book The Closing of the Liberal Mind: How Groupthink and Intolerance Define the Left.
Although the definition of liberalism is to permit the free flow of ideas and protect freedom of expression, Holmes asserts that liberals today have "turned the cause of equality into a weapon that could be used against freedom of speech." more >>
