Miss Elinor’s thank you

It often amazes me how many words of kindness and encouragement I receive for the stories I tell. Often, a reader will write, "You don't know me but I feel that we are friends."

Wrestling with faith in your front seat

This morning, as I was getting off I-95 at the Abercorn Extension exit, I came across a person asking for a handout. You can call them panhandlers or street people, I suppose; the Bible just calls them beggars.

It is our way of relating information and of course to elicit your input and comment.

Dealing with the inevitable tantrums

Q: How do you stop tantrums in a 3-year-old? My daughter never went through the "terrible twos," but began throwing wild tantrums shortly after her third birthday. This coincided with the birth of a sibling, a boy, but she's very affectionate and helpful toward him so I don't know if there's any connection. I've tried everything I can think of to prevent and stop the tantrums - things I've seen recommended in various places - but nothing has worked. She throws one whenever she doesn't get her way. Help!

The other day I did a survey asking men about things that women do that drive them crazy, and I received a ton of responses. (It was obviously a topic they were passionate about.) Here are some of their answers:
