Your little one has discovered the (excruciating) magic of whining — and if he or she keeps at it long enough, he might just transform a "no" into a "yes. (MoMo Productions/Taxi/Getty Images)

Uncertainties and inability to manage outcomes is the greatest cause of worry, stress and despondency. Jesus Christ knew that the disciples would face that challenge when He […]
