The Most WONDERFUL Time of the Year!
We’re told Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. And it definitely can be, especially if families do some planning to be sure Christ is kept as the focus. The online resource Creative Bible Study offers suggestions to make that possible, such as using a nativity set and reading the Christmas story together as a family, telling the story of the Christmas Nail as the ornament is hung on the tree, having a birthday party for Jesus, serving as a family at a soup kitchen or nursing home, or baking and sharing goodies and a Christmas tract with others.
Julaine Appling, WFA president, shares, “Christmas can get crazy busy, especially for families—and unfortunately what gets neglected often is the opportunity to really focus on the gift of Jesus Christ and what He means to all mankind. There’s still enough time this year for moms and dads to choose one or two simple ideas to put into the festivities that will strengthen family bonds and grow the faith of the next generation.”
Suicide Rate for Kids Ages 10-14 Triples; Family Structure Matters
Written by Samuel Smith for The Christian Post:
“According to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics, the suicide rate among 10 through 24-year-olds has increased 56 percent over the last decade as violent deaths (suicide and homicide) continue to be leading causes of death for that age bracket.
“In 2017, suicide was the second leading cause of death for children aged 10 to 14, teenagers 15 to 19, and young adults ages 20-24.”
Read the rest of the article HERE.
“This is a sobering, tragic report,” says Julaine Appling, WFA president, “One strong correlation the report doesn’t mention is family structure. Research shows that children from intact, married dad-and-mom families are less likely to suffer from mental health issues that too often lead to suicide ideation and even actual suicide. Kids need their parents—both of them—to be actively involved in their lives.”

after Considering Assisted Suicide
In an editorial published recently online at The Cap Times, Cori Salchert (photo left, holding “Charlie”) boldly asserts from personal experience that assisted suicide is not the answer. Salchert says in 2012, had assisted suicide been legal in Wisconsin, she probably would have done it to escape the pain she was in. However, it wasn’t available; and she is alive today, even mothering special needs children and helping others with serious illnesses. She reminds everyone that every human life is valuable and worth fighting for, and that doctors don’t know with surety when anyone is going to die.
“The story of this wife and mother is poignant and timely,” says Julaine Appling, WFA president, “Proponents of assisted suicide in Wisconsin are increasing their efforts to legalize this form of killing, hoping that if the legislature flips from conservative to liberal next year, they will get their way. We need more real-life testimonies like Cori’s to highlight the reality that assisted suicide is truly not the answer.”
