Landon Routzong of Troy, Alabama, has a big heart for the age of 9, and he proved just how big over the weekend at a Chick-fil-A drive-thru. While he and his mother were waiting in line to pick up their lunch, Landon Routzong noticed the Florida license plate on the back of the car in front of theirs. So, he told his mom he wanted to pay for that car’s meal.

“I didn’t want them to waste their money on food because they’re trying to escape the hurricane,” Landon Routzong told ABC News. “I felt like I should help out.”

But in order to pay for the meal, he had to get to the drive-thru window before the Florida car did. As a result, his mother, Tara Parker Routzong, gave him her debit card and told him to run. The man in the Florida car agreed to let Landon Routzong pay for his meal.

Later, the man pulled over to meet the family, telling the mother and her son he was from Miami and was fleeing Hurricane Irma. He said was on his way to Birmingham to stay with relatives.

“Landon and I both had tears in our eyes from how appreciative he was,” Tara Parker Routzong wrote on Facebook in a Friday post detailing the encounter.

Routzong’s post has since been shared over 700 times has over 1,800 likes.

Tara Parker Routzong told Inside Edition she and her husband always try to help out. She was proud to see her son do the same thing.

“A 9-year-old could be focused on so many other things, but whenever a situation presents itself, Landon is always thinking of how we can help,” she said.

Routzong said the encounter gave her hope that she is doing a good job as a mother.

“I often feel like I’m failing because I can’t do it all, all the time and then things like this happen and remind me that I don’t have to,” she said in her Facebook post. “My most important job is going just fine.”

Hurricane Irma was downgraded to a tropical storm after it made landfall along the coast of Florida over the weekend. But the storm’s overall damage has been severe, with more still to come. Irma still had sustained winds of up to 70 mph as of Monday afternoon, while over 6.2 million Floridians have experienced power outages.

Firm Family Foundation

Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine in the very heart of your house, your children like olive plants all around your table. Behold, thus shall the man be blessed who fears the Lord.
Psalm 128:3-4

Recommended Reading
Psalm 127:3-5; 128:1-4

The question is often asked, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” A corollary is, “Why do godly parents sometimes have ungodly children?” When parents do their best to fear the Lord and raise their children with admonition and nurture in Him, and children still go astray, it can be a heartbreaking experience.

The Bible doesn’t promise that godly parents will never have ungodly children any more than it promises that a godly Christian will never sin. The Old Testament covenant promised the Israelites that the starting place for success in life begins with fearing the Lord (Deuteronomy 28:1-14; Proverbs 1:7; 9:10). We should never think that not fearing the Lord is the path to blessing. If we want to create a godly family, we should begin by fearing the Lord (Psalm 128:1) lest we labor in vain (Psalm 127:1). That is the only direction the Bible offers, even when things don’t go as prayed for.

Never waver from your life-long commitment to honor the Lord, come what may. Your family’s firm foundation is the fear of the Lord

The family altar would alter many a family.

Twins hold hands in utero

Twins – one with severe health issues – hold hands in the womb

A pregnant mother has a beautiful image to that may serve as a comfort through difficult days ahead: her twins – one with severe medical issues – were caught on sonogram camera holding hands in the womb.

Brittani and Ian McIntire were told one of their unborn twins will not survive. The boy twin has a hole in his heart and an abnormal brain, KWCH reportsAt each doctor appointment, the couple received more bad news, until recently, when the image was captured by sonogram. Brittani recalled, “We didn’t really see much, she said there’s his hand and there’s her hand and it looks like they’re holding hands.”

The boy twin, whom the couple calls Mason, is on the left, and has his tiny hand wrapped around the growing finger of his sister, Madilyn. Brittani said, “Most twins when she’s trying to take pictures and stuff, they’re kicking each other and hitting each other, and she said with our twins, it seems like she was very protective over him.”

Ian said of the photo, “We know we have a piece of them together that will last forever and it’s special to have.”

Brittani added, “It’s just nice with everything going on I know I’m holding him, I’m carrying him but I just want to be there for him and not knowing and she’s the only one who can actually be there and holding onto him through it, and so it’s comforting to know that if he does pass, he won’t be alone.”

Hate Crime: a White Family Pays the ULTIMATE Price For Flying The Confederate Flag


waving flagReported by Lindsey Bruce 07/30/2015

This is by far the most disturbing Confederate flag associated crime I have heard yet. One person was killed and five family members were injured in Columbus Ohio. Three male victims were stabbed and a female victim was shot in the neck.

The family flies a large Confederate flag on their porch and reports claim they may have been targeted because of their race. Both of the attackers were black and the family is white.

From NBC4i.com :

Police said two men, 36-year-old Clement Dwight Cooper and 32-year-old Michael Antonio Long had been burglarizing the home when they were surprised by the residents returning home from work.

One of the residents, Tim Bowls said he saw a shadow on the basement steps, thinking it was his brother, but it wasn’t.

“Pointed a gun at him and told him to lay down, then proceeded to beat him with the gun, stabbed him several times and tied him up with an orange extension cord,” said his Aunt Kim. She asked NBC4 not to use her last name. While the two suspects were attacking Bowls his father, mother and brother also came home from work.

“One of them pointed a shotgun up at them and big Tim started wrestling him for the gun so they shot him and then all hell broke loose,” said Kim.

She said six people were fighting in the stairwell and basement, when the mother was shot at close range.

“Jill was shot in the face and neck,” she said.

The Aunt said the family was afraid for about girls sleeping upstairs.

“There were two girls and three small children asleep upstairs they could have killed them.”

They heard the gunshots and call 9-1-1.

“They shot my mother, please, please someone,” said one of the girls.

Columbus police said five family members were injured and taken to two hospitals. Investigators said they found one of the suspects, Cooper dead in the basement.

Investigators are waiting for an autopsy report from the Franklin County Coroner that will reveal how Cooper died.  The family is out of the hospital and staying with relatives while they recuperate.

“They are hurting very bad they were beaten pretty bad we are upset, I mean somebody comes in your house you feel violated,” said Kim.

Violent attacks like these are happening far too often. The term “race war” was once only  used by racial extremist, now it is becoming more of a reality. Thank God, this family was armed or else the situation could have been even worse. When simply being proud of your heritage can get you killed, something needs to change.

CHRISTMAS HEROES: Parents Fighting Anti-Christian Agendas


Written by Kevin Fobbs on December 13, 2014

How ironic that as children all across the nation prepares to take part in various Christmas season events that they, in far too many cases, will not be allowed to actually celebrate Christmas. But to be honest, it is far more serious than just celebrating Christmas. Each day millions of students are sent by their parents off to build a solid academic base as well as learn about our American values in school. Those values and principles are built upon Judeo-Christian beliefs. In 2013 there were over 400 biblical principle attacks on children who wanted to read a Bible before or after school or even during lunch break and were denied.com02

When your child returns from the Christmas holidays will he or she still have to learn and embrace the teaching of Islam in the classroom, but have the teaching of biblical history overruled? What happens when the topics your child may be learning are ideals and values that marginalize how you have raised them and articulate an agenda that compromises your family’s religious beliefs? This is not something that can be overlooked simply because the child is heading home for a Christmas break.Confused

Actually this serves as the best time to discuss and share what your beliefs are and reinforce the reasons why you will stand up for them when your child returns to school in the New Year. Don’t accept the erroneous church and state separation argument that liberal school officials try to jam down the throat of Christian parents. Your child has U.S. Constitutional rights and they must be protected.

In 2014, it has become an unfortunate circumstance in far too many communities across America that conservatives and parents of faith find themselves locked out of a parental support system like the school’s parents’ organization. Instead of assisting the parents by standing up for their interests and the interests of their kids, the parent organizational members give them cold to lukewarm support.

So it really is upon you;

  • As a parent what are you willing to sacrifice to stand up and protect your child from a school or a school district that is willing to take away or marginalize your child’s values and principles because it is convenient for them?

  • Are you willing to tolerate unfair and illegal treatment of your child?

  • Are you willing to let the politically correct values of liberal parents and secular anti-Christian organizations dominate your life, principles and support of America’s biblical heritage?real heros

America has a culture that rises up from the deep foundational values that guided the founding fathers. We understand that it is America’s heritage found in small towns, big cities and rural communities that give birth to parental heroes whose actions become larger than life. These are the parents that pray over their decisions at their kitchen table, or in the living room or perhaps during the church service. As a responsible parent they take a stand on principle rather than they should turn over their role and responsibility to the offending teacher, principal, submitting to the will of a partial anti-Christian school administrator or local school board member. They are not like others who take the easy route and conveniently swallow their principles and their values.

Be one of those parents who are not just heroes for their children but are truly American Heroes with a capital H. Join and recruit others in your school, neighborhood and church this Christmas season in the nation’s Heartland.

Take a page from Samuel Adams, who was one of America’s Revolutionary Heroes and a Founding Father. Adams’s father was a church deacon and was deeply influenced by him. Adams spoke of lukewarm supporters saying,

“If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

Let liberty and your children and America’s future generations be your guide and your prayer as you celebrate this Christmas season. There is no tranquility in servitude to political correctness, so take off the politically correct chains of convenience that are used to shackle your children. Praise the birth of the Son of God and fight to protect your child and their future in the New Year as their Hero!
