Prominent Christian actor and former child television star Kirk Cameron is encouraging married Christians to focus on their own marriage responsibilities rather than focusing on what their spouse could be doing to improve their marriage.
Cameron, who travels to churches across the United States to teach married couples about the importance of having a God-centered marriage and the importance of fighting to keep their marriages alive, spoke with The Christian Post on his participation in the "Love Worth Fighting For" national marriage tour.

The Department of Homeland Security's Office of Citizenship and Immigration Services notified Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., last week that his request to have the wording on a naturalization study guide to be changed from "freedom of worship" to "freedom of religion" will be granted.
Lankford, the co-chair of the Congressional Prayer Caucus and a former Baptist youth ministry leader, sent a letter to Sec. of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson last June inquiring about the use of the term "freedom of worship" in question 51 of a naturalization study guide called "Learn About the United States: Quick Civic Lessons." more >>
