Sayings about grandmothers
DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have problems communicating because I don’t talk enough, but that’s the way I was raised. My family just didn’t talk about serious things. I’m not saying avoidance is right, but I have a hard time talking seriously. When I feel put on the spot, I find it difficult to form my words correctly, and I shut down.

That doesn’t say to honor those parents who are worthy to be honored, but to honor your father and your mother. This commandment has a promise. If a person honors their father and mother, then their “days may be long in the land.” That sounds very much like a blessing for honoring your parents. Of course some find it impossible to honor their parents if they’ve been abused. How can you honor someone that did “that” to you!? Only they can answer that … [Read more...] about What The Bible Says About Mothers

The cold-blooded killers then bundled Becky’s body into the boot … [Read more...] about What happened in the murder of Becky Watts, when was she killed by her step-brother Nathan Matthews and what did her dad say about it?
