How to get a non-religious spouse to pray with you

We sat outside in the plaza of a coffee shop. He looked worn out, tired and frustrated. He sighed out in anguish, “I’ve retained an attorney. I have no other choice. We’re just not getting along. She wants to live like she’s still single. I want to have a marriage and a peaceful home. She wants to party. I want a wife that will pray with me and believe God for a great life. She’s just not the person I thought she was.”

Noted and passed - April 20, 2015

• Last week's seizure by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) of Old Armory Steak & Seafood on Rutledge Street marks at least the temporary loss of one of Camden and Kershaw County's premier restaurants. It is an unfortunate blow to the downtown Camden economy. Each business provides potential traffic to another and the loss of any one diminishes such beneficial ripple effects. Locals cheered the Old Armory's opening in 2006 so soon after the closing of the previous tenant, The Paddock. Many people and businesses have celebrated the holidays, proms, anniversaries, engagements, weddings, birthdays and more at the Old ...

Rich: The chainsaw assault

To be honest, I was more than a mite worried. I was plenty worried. My husband, raised not in the South or in the country, wanted a chainsaw. The one farm accessory which has brought down many a man. From an early age, I was taught respect for that chewing, sawing, respect-for-no-man power tool.

Morgan: Challenges

I was extremely pleased earlier this year to be invited with school board Chairman Ron Blackmon to participate in the Kershaw County Council planning retreat. It was a very informative experience for both of us. At the retreat, I was asked to outline what I see as the school district's most critical challenges. I've since been asked by several other groups to do the same presentation, so I thought what I had to say might be of interest.

Letter: Reader concerned about society’s ‘suicide’

I write this based on a fear for the well-being and future of America. If I am wrong, somebody set me straight, please. The historian philosopher Arnold Toynbee said, "Civilizations die from suicide, not murder, and start to decay when they lose their moral fiber and the cultural elite turns parasitic, exploiting the masses." In other words, they die from within. The history of the rise and fall of great civilizations lends support to this.

How to love so deeply that you'll never lose your sweetheart

Success in any relationship depends on whether or not you're able to hear unspoken language. For example, does your girl want you to open the door for her as a grand gesture of chivalry, or would she rather do it herself to assert her feminine strength and independence? Do a dozen red roses tell her you love her, or would she rather have a single daisy from your backyard? Now, you may not see the difference (although the daisy sure costs a lot less), but she sees small subtleties, picking up a distinct message.

How your weight loss habits are making your kids fat

Like many parents, you’ve considered the importance of setting a good example for your kids in many areas of your life, but are your dieting habits detrimental to your children’s health and well-being? Current diet culture promotes unhealthy extremes and poor body image, polarizing food as “good” or “bad" — and this is incredibly damaging to a child’s ability to develop a healthy or normal relationship with food. The Framingham Children's Study showed that children whose parents showed the highest levels of restrictive dieting followed by post-diet overeating were most likely to be overweight compared to children ...

Crazy confessions of a work-at-home mom



In the interest of full disclosure, my toddler is running around half-dressed and screaming for milk right now. And, I literally mean right now. Although I'm not a fan of mommy labels, I suppose it's accurate to say I'm a work-at-home mom. I write freelance, and I teach music lessons out of my home. As part of the sisterhood of moms who work at home, I have a few secrets I'd like to share. If you're thinking about working from home, start taking notes.

A new study, the 2015 Strengths@Work Survey, suggests that the path to great performance may be easier than we think.

5 ways to destroy your child's confidence

It goes without saying that frequently calling children "stupid" "lazy" or "bad" can do major damage over time to their self-esteem. When a parent uses negative labels such as these, a child can lose confidence in his or her abilities or innate worth. Most conscientious parents avoid stooping so low that they resort to name calling or using negative labeling.
