Multiple Streams

Multiple streams of income have never been a way of American life. After all, before the economy collapsed, many people spent their years toiling away at one company waiting for the day they could collect their retirement funds. But tough economic times have forced many people to create several streams of revenue just to stay afloat.

Watching what your kids watch on TV

WASHINGTON (NNPA) – When 6-year-old Simaya Hammonds ditched Dora the Explorer for tween-fare found on the Disney Channel and Nickelodeon, her mom, Tahneezia Hammonds wasn’t surprised.

The precocious first grader enjoys “Shake It Up” on the Disney Channel and “Victorious,” a show about students at a performing arts high school on Nickelodeon, is one of her favorites. “A.N.T. Farm,” a show about a group of gifted middle schoolers (A.N.T. is an acronym for “Advanced Natural Talents) attending a local high school made it into her Disney rotation.

The Royal Bride Conference

The Women’s Vessel group recently presented The Royal Bride conference.

The conference centered on the purity and sanctity of marriage and women longing for marriage.  Participants included Pastor Joyce Lester and Minister Maisha Barrett.  Several other presenters were present and shared topics ranging from women’s health issues to domestic violence. 

Conference organizer Jennifer Watson stated that this event was not only a way for women to connect with one another, but a way for each woman to gain a better understanding in her relationship with Christ.

They would never intersect with west in this direction.

Man Talk: Like Father, Like Son

This past Sunday, we celebrated “Fathers Day.” It is a special day of recognition for the fathers and father figures in our lives. It also serves to highlight the importance that male influence has in the development of young men. As I think on this topic, the quote “like father, like son” comes to mind. This idiom has been around for hundreds of years and it is used when different generations of a family behave in the same way or have the same talents or defects.  It is a reminder that fathers willingly or unwillingly shape the behavior of their son.
