The Dad Who Dares Wins: The Family Who Gardens Together, Grows Together

Gardening can be great fun, but it can also be a time to build into the life of your family. The family that gardens together -- developing and cultivating God's creation -- grows together. Me and Gardening Horticulture isn’t a strength of mine. Given the choice, I’d side with Bear Grylls over Sir David Attenborough; watch technology, and war history documentaries, over a Monty Don walk through French provincial gardens.  (Nothing ...

It’s designed to draw in, keep and convert its prey.  https://youtu.be/UjOmX-1Tq0o   Tech is Designed this Way To be fair, all this is done to incite repeat customs. There’s nothing inherently unethical about this since designers operate ...

Are You Unhappy? This Might Be the Problem

How is it that despite looking like we have the things we need, we are unhappy, frustrated, even angry? As the world looks to behavioural change programs to deal with tragedies like domestic violence, Guy argues that perhaps, for men who are at risk of ‘snapping’, an answer is more deeply hidden but oh so easy to get.
