7 dangerous Apps that parents need to know about – CheckUp Daily
I work in public relations at Cook Children’s. It’s my job to be on social networking sites, peruse the internet and keep up with the latest Apps offered on smartphones.

The Dreaded Question – Replicate Ministries
Many pastors of smaller-sized churches dread the question almost everyone asks, “How big is your church/membership?” (If you tend to ask that question, please stop). First, pastor, just answer the question. Tell the inquisitive person honestly you have a small-sized congregation (“intimate”, or “close-knit” are good synonyms if you just cannot say the word “small”). Yes, people tend to be impressed with numbers, bells, and whistles, but do not be ashamed or hesitant to state what you have been blessed to oversee.
“HOW TO” FOR DADS: REINFORCING MODESTY – Secret Keeper Girls

How can I enforce modesty in a way my daughter respects?
It’s likely you’ve seen that dad who wore super short shorts out in public to “teach his daughter modesty.” Funny for the rest of us. “Way to go Dad,” right? I don’t know about the daughter though. Something was needed to prove his point, but I think intentional public humiliation is not always the best. Point being, encouraging our daughters to be modest can be a great undertaking.
