Same-Sex Parents: How Does It Affect Children?

Same-Sex Parents: How Does It Affect Children?

Many people would have us believe that children raised by same-sex couples receive the same developmental benefits as children raised in a traditional two-parent marriage. Even a brief from the American Psycological Association asserted this view. But, a recently published article by Loren Marks, PhD, in the journal Social Science Research convincingly challenges that assertion.

He Is Risen!

He Is Risen!

“He is risen! He is risen! Tell it out with joyful voice. He has burst his three days’ prison; let the whole wide earth rejoice. Death is conquered; man is free. Christ has won the victory.” Christ has won the victory for us over death. He has also won the victory over sin, pain, and suffering. No matter the issues we face, personally or with our families, they can all be swallowed up in the love of Jesus. We discuss many of the issues facing families today and how we can overcome those issues; however, no matter how ready we are to face those challenges through secular means, Jesus is the only means by which our families can be truly united and at peace.

Have a happy Easter.
