The award-winning children's book, The Jesus Storybook Bible, which based on biblical stories featuring Jesus, has passed the major milestone of selling 2 million copies.
Author Sally Lloyd-Jones, a Briton born in Uganda who moved to the United States in 1989, told The Christian Post that she felt "totally gobsmacked" and "blown away" by the news.
"I have no doubt at all who the author of this book's success is and I give Him all the praise. I also know that without all the readers who have placed their trust in me … we never would have reached this milestone," she added. more >>
The father of five Romanian Pentecostal children who were taken into custody by the Norwegian government last year was finally allowed to visit with his two oldest sons for the first time in nearly three months.
After the five children of Ruth and Marius Bodnariu were taken from their parents custody by the Barnevernet (Norway's child services) last November based on allegations that they spanked their children, the authorities provided the Romanian Pentecostal parents with limited visitation rights.
Although both parents are allowed to visit their infant son, Ezechiel, twice per week, neither parent has been granted permission to visit with their two daughters, Eliana and Naomi. Even though Ruth has been granted permission to visit with their two oldest sons, Matei and Ioan, once per week for two-hour intervals, Marius was not granted any visitation rights with them. more >>

"The perfect life" stalks us until we starve and stress ourselves out and then beat up whatever remains of our self-worth. Young moms like me are especially vulnerable, but all moms fight this battle. Chances are you struggle with — or know someone who is struggling with — one of these top guilt producers in moms: more >>
A pro-abortion staff member at Purdue University has allegedly threatened to rape pro-life women in an online comment to an article posted by the pro-life website Live Action News. Following reports of the staff member's comment, the Indiana school is now investigating the claims.
After members of the Purdue Students for Life organization posted flyers around campus last week to bring awareness to the extremely high number of abortions in the African-American community, the group faced backlash from the campus community for putting up the posters during Black History Month.
Jamie Newman, who works in Purdue's Visual and Performing Arts Department as a piano accompanist for the Division of Dance, took to Facebook to voice his outrage with the pro-life group's messaging around the West Lafayette campus. more >>
Two homeschooling families in Ohio could face hefty fines and many years in prison for failing to properly fill out notices of intent with their local school districts.
"Both families said they felt blindsided by these charges after they had taken steps to correct minor paperwork issues, which the school district did not bring to the families' attention for weeks," said attorney Peter Kamakawiwoole with the Home School Legal Defense Association to The Christian Post Tuesday.
"As this litigation is on-going, we are hesitant to discuss their situation in significant detail, beyond saying that the families are preparing for their criminal trials, which were originally scheduled for later this month." more >>
