    Lock ‘em up!

    BY LEANN DILBECK – Toddlers love to play with buttons. Our son’s favorite toy and teether was either the TV remote control or cordless phone.. Just seeing it caused him to salivate excitedly while reaching as if it was chocolate covered (that’s what my brain relates to.) The worst that could happen with these, if you weren’t paying close attention ...

    No Limits

    BY LEANN DILBECK – We’re taught as small children to color within the lines – to stay within the margins.  We learn our parents’ rules, the school’s rules, and of course, girls have their own set of rules, but everywhere children look, there’s rules, margins, guidelines and we anticipate that one day when we achieve adulthood – all of those ...

    Families are Targets

    BY LEANN DILBECK – To think of your family as the “hunted” is enough to spark every parent’s worst nightmare… but today’s traditional, God-centered families are under attack like never before by THE most cunning and evil enemy ever known. He seeks to devour families and everything they represent… they are a threat. In the cross-hairs are the very values ...

    Arming Our Children

    BY LEANN DILBECK – Children’s brains are like little sponges that seem to take in every single word and visual around them. And, just when you think they are not paying attention, and let something “slip,” we are quickly and humbly reminded of how keenly aware they always are. The brain’s retention at that age is remarkable. For me, it ...

    One in a Million

    BY LEANN DILBECK – Every good little Christian child who was brought up in church hits that point when their faith becomes their own. For me, I was 25. I had known and loved the Lord from an early age and always desired to do right but having no real hardships or tragedies in my life deprived me of learning ...

    My Last 500 Days

    BY LEANN DILBECK – That “aha” moment… when you know your time is running out. The once tiniest human in our home is now the tallest; and the one that we all call when we can’t reach something… the one that used to rely on his daddy to lift him above his head and fly with the angel to put ...

    Do-Over!

    BY LEANN DILBECK – Do-over! Do-over! Remember those from school days? Wouldn’t it be great if they applied to adult life, too? Sadly, sometimes as Christians, I don’t think we afford those opportunities to others as much as we should.  We all fall short but watching others fall short and then permanently condemning them to never have a place in ...

    Just breathe…

    BY LEANN DILBECK – In January, my sweet husband, realizing that we are no longer spring chickens, convinced me that we should welcome the new year with a renewed effort to get our very out of shape bodies… into shape.  It’s been a new experience for us because we had always enjoyed being able to do anything we wanted to ...

    Ear Ticklers…

    BY LEANN DILBECK – Well, hang on to your britches, because this is another one of those “rainbows and purple berry flavored smoke” ones… 2016 is a presidential election year.  All eyes were focused on Monday’s Iowa Caucus that will serve as the first barometer of America’s moods regarding this year’s large and diverse (entertainers to career politicians) slate of ...

    No Excuses…

    BY LEANN DILBECK – There are many staples in a self-respecting southerner’s closet and among them is camouflage.  Regardless of whether you actually pull the trigger as a hunter, because, after all, it’s not always about practicality or necessity, but an actual fashion statement for others.  And it’s not just your run of the mill GI Joe camo anymore. Oh, ...
