Fostering love

30 May | 2016

Last week, my husband and I took a big step in our family life: we attended our first class for people interested in fostering and adoption. Where God will take us on this journey, only he knows.

Avoiding the Topic

14 May | 2016

My first job for War Cry was interviewing John Kirwan about his book on parenting and child and teenage mental health. A year and a half later we’re returning to the subject of mental health.

18 Apr | 2016

We’re currently commemorating the centenary of the First World War, the ‘war to end all wars’, but there’s no doubt humanity is still too often drawn to warfare as a way to solve conflict.

Blessed by mercy

Who do you see?

20 Feb | 2016

In this edition we introduce you to Matt Friedman, a long-time activist in the abolition of human trafficking. Some readers would remember Matt’s disturbing and inspiring contribution to the 2013 Salvation Army Just Action conference.
