The estranged 19-year-old son of the father of 10 Kentucky homeschool children who were seized by police last week due to concerns with the family's off-the-grid lifestyle testified in a Monday custody hearing that his father physically and sexually abused him as a small child.
Joe and Nicole Naugler's hopes of getting their 10 children back in Monday's hearing was crushed after Alex Brow, Joe Naugler's adult son from a previous relationship who hadn't seen his father since he was removed from his custody at the age of four, testified in Breckenridge County Court that his father is a very "mean" and abusive man.
Although the public and media were not allowed in the courtroom for the hearing due to the fact it concerns children, Brow, along with Breckinridge County Sheriff Todd Pate, spoke with media outside the courtroom after the hearing and said only reason why he decided to make an appearence was to help his brothers and sisters. more >>
If there was an Oscar award for best baby actor, there is no doubt this little boy would win easily. When you see this little baby's ability to turn his heart-wrenching sad face into an instant smile, your heart will melt.

We often hide our pain. But, is that really going to help? In order to fix a problem, we must first admit we have the problem. Then from there, we can ask the Lord to help us and guide us in the direction we need to be in.
We hide our hurts for many reasons. Whether it's because of pride, shame, or even fear, the result is the same: that pain eats away at us unless we bring it to the Lord. We must bring it to light and our hidden hurts will be healed. There is no painful experience that God can't touch and use for his glory. The Bible gives us guidance and reasons why it is important to bring these hurts to the Lord.
Below are 6 reasons and Bible verses stressing the importance of bringing your problems to God: more >>

A local sheriff's office in Western Kentucky has seized 10 homeschool children from their parents after an allegation was filed claiming that the family's "off-the-grid," homestead lifestyle placed the children in dangerous living conditions.
While Joe Naugler was away from the family's 28-acre rural homestead with eight of his kids last Wednesday, his wife, Nicole Naugler, was at home with the two oldest children when Breckinridge County Sheriff's deputies surrounded the family's makeshift cabin home and demanded that Naugler hand over her kids.
Not wanting to hand over her children to the police, Naugler attempted to drive away from her property and was subsequently pulled over by the police officers. The officers then took the two kids into custody and arrested Naugler, who is five months pregnant, for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. more >>
