American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Adults who watch TV for three hours or more each day may double their risk of premature death compared to those who watch less, according to new research published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.

A Little Harmless Sin

 

SinClarksville, TN – “This can all be yours if you give me your devotion,” Satan said to Jesus (Mt. 4:8–9).

Helping Your Child Learn History

 

U.S. Department of EducationWashington, D.C. – Children are born into history. They have no memory of it, yet they find themselves in the middle of a story that began before they became one of its characters.

Children also want to have a place in history—their first historical questions are: “Where did I come from?” and “Was I always here?” These two questions contain the two main meanings of history: It’s the story of people and events, and it’s the record of times past.
