  1. Pre-parenting, Discipline and Sin by Abby Kelly  
    I have had numerous discussions with friends about how my husband and I plan to discipline our daughter. Already, I've noticed hundreds of books touting the secrets of raising girls, training up a child in the way he or she should go, the merits of spanking, the value of positive reinforcement, and on and on. I have yet to see a book that tells me what I'm supposed to do about my own sin.

  2. How To Raise Wise Children by Dinora Garza  
    We might not be able to stop the indoctrination at school, but we can certainly take the "garbage" out of our children's minds every day.

    Kids have been lured out into parks and streets at night, without the glorified parents even suspecting anything. Child abductors, rapists, pedophiles, drug dealers and you name it, will be out there, happily setting a trap for your na´ve offspring. You don't believe it? Once gone, you might never see your kids (alive) ever again.

  7. Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin by Shari Weigerstorfer

  10. Wish the Fish 11 (love) by louis gander  
    The doctor bills had taken all -
    so money? She had none.
    The off'ring plate had passed her by
    - but not her little son.

    where heart and love enjoin,
    a 'clink' had echoed through the church.
    Dropped in, his little coin.

  11. Wish the Fish 10 (compassion) by louis gander  
    But listen? Wish's friend did not.
    Bad habits grew in him a lot.
    He didn't try to change his ways
    and he seemed always in a daze.
    His friend was Catfish, Catfish Jim -
    and habits got the best of him.

    "Just stay away! Leave me alone.
    Your voice has a disdainful tone.
    Don't preach to me and do not call.
    You always think you know it all.
    Keep all your morals to yourself.
    Leave me alone. I love myself.

    So Wish the Fish went on his way.
    And time went on - day after day.

    The judge was Big Mouth Bass!

    The prosecutor raised his voice,
    "His reputation's filthy!
    He brags, he cheats, he steals, he lies.
    He's guilty, guilty, guilty!
