Click here for today’s feature:

One of the most common challenges parents have faced through the generations is the issue of discipline. While there are many different perspectives in the Christian community about how to discipline, the Bible is pretty clear as to why we ought to discipline.

This piece features a conversation with two seasoned parents: 1.) Dave Johnson — grandfather, home School father of three and a farmer in central Illinois and 2.) Nancy Campbell — mother of 6 grown daughters, grandmother to more than 30 grandchildren and editor of Above Rubies Magazine, a publication meant to encourage mothers and homemakers.

Today’s conversation was based on an article written by Dave Johnson entitled: A Biblical and Practical View of Discipline in the Christian Home, from the Summer/Autumn 2006 Alliant Magazine, a publication of Illinois Christian Home Educators.  A .pdf of the complete article is available online here.
