The Bible tells us that the world will know we are Christians by our love for one another, and there are few ways better to love a brother or sister than to lift them up in prayer.

While Chick-fil-A may be best known for their incredible acts of kindness for their customers and communities, one of their own employees was the on the receiving end of one of the restaurant’s latest heartwarming deeds.

At the Belmont, North Carolina location of America’s favorite chicken joint, a woman known as Ms. Trish isn’t just an employee, she’s a beloved member of the community.

When she was diagnosed with breast cancer, Ms. Trish might have felt scared or uncertain, but her Chick-fil-A family saw to it that she never felt alone or uncared for during the ordeal.

When the day finally came for Ms. Trish to go in for surgery, the restaurant crew took a moment during the busiest part of their day to do something amazing for her.

In a now-viral Facebook post, fellow Chick-fil-A Belmont employee Susan Lackey Norris said “there have been numerous times that [Ms. Trish] has stopped what she was doing and prayed with our customers.”

So, at 11:52 AM, when Ms. Trish was scheduled to be in surgery, everyone in the restaurant, including the customers, stopped what they were doing to pray for her.

“We have one of our team members that is starting surgery right now for breast cancer, and we’d like to say a short prayer for her,” he said to those present in the packed eatery.

“Dear Lord, please just protect Ms. Trish as she begins her surgery today. Please give the surgeons a steady hand as they perform the needed surgery on her,” the manager, who has not been identified, continued. “Please keep everybody in the surgery room, let them be at their best today and have sharp minds and clear heads as they work on her. We need her back here.”

“She is our light. She is the pillar in the community for us and everybody here loves her so much and please, please protect her and get her back here to brighten our days, all of our days, as soon as you can,” he concluded, sending up the prayer in Jesus’ name.

The total silence in the dining area was finally broken when everyone sealed their prayer with a heartfelt “amen.”

Going through any trial, let alone one as severe as a battle with cancer, can be life-shaking, but there is tremendous peace and comfort in knowing that God has us in the palm of His hand and that the prayer warriors in our lives are lifting us up before Him.

Joey Chestnut’s Gutsy Performance Breaks Another Hot Dog Eating Record

A feat unmatched for Chestnut, who is growing accustomed to the glory.

One of the 4th of July’s most time-honored traditions may also be one of its zaniest, and this year was no exception. Every Independence Day, the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest amazes spectators and onlookers alike, as the larger-than-life characters of the professional eating world take the stage for what is widely considered the ultimate test of their “sport”. And no, this isn’t the rinky-dink affair that you might find at your local frankfurter spot.  The pageantry and fanfare are unparalleled, as evidenced by the introduction afforded to the world’s most prolific hot dog downer. https://twitter.com/espn/status/1411730424913616907?s=20 And, if you thought for one second that Chestnut was going to phone it in in 2021, you’d be dead wrong. Chowdown champ Joey “Jaws” Chestnut broke his own record to gulp to a 14th win in the men’s Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest on Sunday, while Michelle Lesco took the women’s title. Chestnut downed 76 franks and buns in 10 minutes. That’s one more than he did in setting the men’s record last year, when the contest unfolded without fans because of the coronavirus pandemic. “It just felt good,” Chestnut, of Westfield, Indiana, said in an ESPN interview after his win Sunday. “Even if I was uncomfortable, having everybody cheer me and push me, it made me feel good.” Lesco, of Tucson, Arizona, downed 30¾ dogs in 10 minutes and called her win “an amazing feeling.” Reigning women’s champ and record-holder Miki Sudo skipped this year because she’s expecting a baby in a few weeks with fellow competitive eater Nick Wehry. https://twitter.com/woodwardsports/status/1412118527214034945?s=20

How to Keep Your Kids From Becoming Liberal

here is beauty and goodness in a community of like-minded families.

Socialism, atheism, hyper-sexualism, wokeism, and the belief that America is evil is now the norm in government schools. I saw this coming years ago before my wife and I started our family which led us to homeschool our children. But we quickly learned that simply schooling at home was not enough. Please read the following message from my wife. It could save your family a lot of heartache, like it saved ours. Brandon Vallorani, Founder of Flag and Cross and Thrasher Coffee I began homeschooling in 2000, when my oldest daughter turned 4 years old. Armed with my bachelor’€™s degree in education and a lifelong desire to teach, I felt confident in my abilities. By 2012, our dream of a full house came true. We now had 7 children ages 16 years old down to newborn. Life was crazy but good. In the midst of raising an infant, toddlers, and teenagers, I had begun to notice some serious learning struggles with one of our children. Over the next two years, I sought help anywhere I could turn. Desperately trying to fix our problems, I scheduled appointments for testing with child psychologists and made numerous changes to our homeschool routine. Countless hours were spent in prayer. Nothing was working. I was overwhelmed and on the verge of quitting completely. And then I attended an informational meeting about Classical Conversations. Immediately inspired, my plan was to save€ the youngest members of our family by joining a Classical Conversations Community. I had been homeschooling for 14 years without a support system, and we all needed friends to stand in the gap. At this informational meeting, I learned about Classical Christian education: grammar, dialectic, and rhetorical stages. I saw a Director light up as she described the beauty of the program. They spoke about…
