Wheeler: Planting trees in dead of winter is OK

Eyes of the Father: Discipline can help our faith grow

Cole came to me crying. This in itself is not unusual. Cole cries at a lot of things. If he gets in trouble. If Chloe says or does something mean to him. When he has to go to bed.

Many consider graphic novels as not "real" reading - that is, they may view the genre as picture books for adults (and in a vast majority of cases, very adult, given how gory and sexual some mainstream comic books have become nowadays).

Eyes of the Father: God's love shines through like a father's kiss
