Stress Relief Tip of the Month: Follow Christ
As you strive to come to Him, you will gain the power to relieve life’s burdens, whether physical or spiritual, and experience a positive inner change that will help you be happier.
What steps can we take today to “walk with Him”?
- Feed the desire to be a better follower of Christ.15
- Pray for this desire that your faith in Him may grow.16
- Obtain knowledge from the scriptures, lighting the way and strengthening your desire to change.17
- Make the decision today to act and say, “Yes, Lord, I will follow Thee!” Simply knowing the truth will not change your world unless you turn knowledge into action.18
- Persevere in the decision you have made by exercising these principles daily.19

The Dinner Topic Theme for January: Light
“Defining Moments” is a monthly feature. Kind of a fancy name for a glossary. When I was growing up, we had a huge dictionary on a tall, narrow, rolling table. Whenever we asked the meaning of a word, we were told to “look it up.” We still do that. You’d be surprised at some of the interesting things you find in the dictionary, especially the 1828 American Dictionary. Now, with all the twists and spins that politicians and the media do to common words, it’s valuable to go back to the original meaning. It can make for interesting conversation, too.

Truth Detectors: Reality Updates
In these days when Truth is endangered by political expediency, it is important that we learn to discern Truth from Error, fraud, or downright deception. To find other articles on this topic, type Truth Detectors (hyphenated, to filter) in the search bar of this site.
And as always—current events, updates, and analysis
Seeing the widespread injury done in any given week, (many incidents go unreported), stay aware of important news and insights at Epicworld Dinner Topics.
Traditional Bible-believing parents may have to consider withdrawing their children from public schools to protect your family spiritually and financially from the rising tide of persecution and ruinous lawsuits by anti-Christian fascists.
If it is not possible for you to home school, try to teach your children Judeo-Christian values at home. The easiest way to do this is to tell stories and discuss principles at the family dinner table. I hope these dinner topics help you with this vital effort. Just don’t give up! Our precious children are worth fighting for.
Tea Party Update listed each month.
It is important to understand that the Tea Party is not a third political party. Nor does it represent all the slanderous falsehoods hurled upon them by those who hate America and her Founders. It is organized to restore Constitutional principles to the government of America. If you love the USA with good, old-fashioned patriotism, then the Tea Party is the best organization to work for the principles and values you cherish.
Remember what the Tea Party stands for.
Every month we will keep you informed on the latest projects and progress of the Tea Party, with an updated link to our monthly newsletter; most recent updates at top of the list.

- Work to make your state sovereign!
- Study the U.S. Constitution! It is the last remaining safeguard of our precious freedoms! A good way to do this is to study the monthly Constitution series from The 5,000 Year Leap. To access this series of posts, type US Constitution Series in this site’s search bar.
Thanks for visiting. Come often; Stay Late.
