Eastern Europe (MNN) — While abortion rates are falling in the developed world, Eastern Europe still stands as the region of the world with the highest rates of abortion. Research findings published in the Lancet in 2014 show that 42 out of every 1,000 women in Eastern Europe had an abortion. In North America, that […]

International (MNN) — Tent Schools International is all about education, and since schools continue to update to fit the latest technology, it makes sense for Tent Schools to do the same thing.

Ties to this earthly life are often pretty powerful. Being tethered to our current existence is experienced by all. Nothing wrong with loving one’s family, one’s friends. Nothing bad about loving the life God has blessed you with and living it to the fullest. God sent His Son Jesus to give us life, and life […]

Today is my birthday. I’ve had a lot of experience in celebrating my “special” day. Actually I did very little to make it all happen. I guess the closest thing I did to achieve my first May 15 was respond to the Dr’s slap and take a deep breath , followed by exercising my vocal […]
