Going Out With My Boots On!
Have you ever wondered how our “old sayings” became “old sayings?” Take for instance, “You can’t have your cake and eat it too?” This sage old saying has never made any sense to me. Why would you want cake if you couldn’t eat it?

Did It Leave A Mark?
I have always wondered how brothers or sisters can have the same mother and father and be complete opposites from each other.

Teach Your Children
There was a popular song some years ago called "Teach Your Children."  It wasn't about religious education, but unfortunately, for many children that's the teaching they're not getting.  If we hold the Bible as the most important book to our faith, we need to study it--and to teach it to our children.  This week, Dr. Spence shares a 'fake' Bible story to show just how people can become confused if they haven't been taught.
