Married in High School – Now Celebrating Six Months

My teenage daughter, who was married in high school, has now been married for six months (actually about 6 1/2 months at this point because I'm way behind on this post). In my last post about the couple, I tricked you into thinking you would get some really profound, further explanation about their wish to marry at such a young age. However, when questioned, all my daughter could come up with was that she just "really likes him." Since I left you hanging on that cliff, I do think it's about time we delved further into spiritual discernment, today's dating culture, and the really hysterical comments one school official had to offer.

Levi Coffin House: Hoosier History of Racial Harmony

You will not find a finer example of historic preservation in Indiana than the Levi Coffin House. This nugget of Hoosier history was restored to its 19th-century splendor many years ago and has been maintained through the years mostly by the dedication of devoted volunteers. This National Historic Landmark located in Fountain City, Indiana (formerly known as the town of Newport in Levi Coffin's day) was once considered Grand Central Station of the Underground Railroad because of the more than 1000 slaves who passed through the house during their escape to freedom.
