  • Summer is a great time to do things together as a family! There are many things you can do to enjoy being with one another. As the kids finish school for summer, sit down as a family and set aside some time without distractions to make some plans for things to do together. Involve all ages! When kids feel like they have a voice in the planning, they will be more interested in making it happen and in being involved.

  • As the temperature starts to rise outside, many families start look­ing forward to spending more time with friends and family, vacationing, and other summer activities. Often, people are tempted to do and spend more money during the summer months.

  • I ran into Randy Riggs last week.

    It’s been a few years since I’ve seen him, and every time I do he oozes God.

    The rest of this column is a rerun of what I wrote about my first encounter with him in October 2000:

    I don’t know Randy Riggs well, but I love him with all my heart. That’s because God used him to whack me over the head when I needed whacking.
    Sometimes God does that.
