Daily Dilemma: Should I Give My Baby The Same Name As My Best Friend's Baby?
Dear Rebecca & Burns,My best friend and I are pregnant at the same time! She is a few months behind me and we are absolutely stoked that we’re going through this at the same time. Here’s my dilemma. She recently announced the gender of her baby and the name they are going with. My husband and I haven’t come up with a name up until this point and when we saw the first name of their child, we LOVED it. In fact, we felt the name was perfect in what we were looking for with our child as well.Is it wrong for me to also take that name for our child as well? I’m not trying to steal names or annoy anybody, we just really love the name. I don’t want to lose my friend over this.

Daily Dilemma: My Husband's Father Is A Bad Influence On Our Kids
Dear Rebecca & Burns,We recently lived with my Father-in-law for 8 months to save money. And it was horrible. He was a terrible role model for our kids. He rarely showered and was super negative about everything. Now that we’ve moved out, I don’t want to see the man, but my husband feels obligated to let him see the kids because he is family – AND it’s the Christian thing to do. But, I don’t want our toddler mimicking all of the negativity. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Daily Dilemma: I Want To Be Generous, Just Not To This Person
Dear Rebecca & Burns,Our dear friends have a son who is going on a mission trip. The parents told him he has to fundraise for it, and we received his letter asking for a $200 donation. First, I feel like that's awfully high. But here's the real dilemma. This is a very wealthy family. Not only can they afford the mission trip, they could afford to send all of the kids in the youth group. My husband doesn't want to give to his fundraiser, but they are our dear friends.What do you think?

3 Things About Heaven That You Might Not Know
When I anticipate my first glimpse of heaven, I remember the first time I went snorkeling.I saw countless fish of every shape, size and color. Just when I thought I'd seen the most beautiful fish, along came one even more striking. Etched in my memory is the sound of a gasp going through my snorkel as my eyes were opened to a breathtaking underwater world.As believers, I imagine our first glimpse of heaven will cause us to gasp in a similar way—with amazement and delight. That first gasp will likely be followed by many more as we continually encounter new sights in that endlessly wonderful place.Though most of us are in no hurry to get to our final destination, we all have questions about it. After in-depth study of the Scriptures, here are some of the most frequently asked questions.

Rebecca Got The Phone Call That You Hope To Never Get
We had a terrible scare the other day. My sweet son, Nick, was hit by a car on his bike on Kirkpatrick in Flower Mound.He was not wearing a helmet. He knows he is supposed to, but I was exhausted and didn’t check to see if he had it. I haven’t the last few times.He has road rash on both legs, and his elbow. He has a scraped up torso. But miraculously, and by the mercy and grace of God, it appears that we avoided a head injury. I’ll watch him tonight and tomorrow to make sure he has no concussion symptoms.This could have ended so differently. I can’t stop seeing him all bloody on the ground. The impact knocked him out of one shoe.Please make your kids wear a helmet. We will never make this mistake again. If Nick won’t wear a helmet, he won’t ride his bike.I haven’t stopped thanking God since it happened. But I want to say a few more thank you’s:To the poor gentleman who hit him—thank you for stopping and calling the police. Thank you so much. Please pray for this kind man.To the sweet woman who called me and started with, “I’m with your son and he’s okay.”To the police who arrived within minutes and the fire fighters who hugged me. To the EMT who made me repeat her instructions back to her.Please, please make your kids wear helmets.

Daily Dilemma: My Friend Has A Problem With Lying
Dear Rebecca & Burns,I have noticed something about one of my friends. She is always exaggerating stories or blurring the details. For instance, we were at a party together for the fourth of July and when someone asked her about her son's baseball tournament she said he got two homeruns. Our sons play on the same team. He got one hit and struck out the other time.I know this seems silly, but it makes me crazy. What should I do? I don't want to embarrass her.

Daily Dilemma: Is This A Red Flag Or Am I Being Ridiculous?
Dear Rebecca & Burns,I am 32 and single. I have recently gone on several dates with a guy from my church whom I've known for a long time. He's a great guy and I really like him. The problem is that he doesn't like dogs. I have had my dog for seven years and my dog is my family. I can't imagine a future without dogs, and I'm a little nervous about someone who doesn't agree with me.Should this be a deal breaker or is this a red flag?

Jay Allen Baby Update: Week 13
We're starting a new segment on the morning show in light of Jay Allen announcing last week that his wife, Kailey, and him are having their first baby in January of 2022! So with that being said, we just wanted to give you an update on where they are at in the process and how the baby is doing!Here's what's happening in week 13 of the pregnancy:As the second trimester begins, the baby is growing so quickly that the little plumb-sized baby it was last week is now about the size of a peach. They measure almost three inches or almost seven and a half centimeters from the top of their head to their bottom, and they weigh .8 oz. or 23 grams this week. Their intestines, which started out as part of the umbilical cord, have found a new home in the abdominal cavity. Their tongue and vocal cords are getting ready for their debut at birth, and his or her eyes are moving closer together. Their ears are in place, fingerprints have formed on their fingertips, if we could see inside the belly, we would see veins and organs which are clearly visible through the baby's skin. This week, little bones are beginning to form in the baby's arms and legs and they are also able to suck their thumb in the womb.

We're All Mad Down Here
I bet you have a movie that when you watch it, it just takes you right back to your childhood. For me, that is Alice in Wonderland and can I just say, that was just my favorite of the animated Disney movies. In fact, I can still watch it today and enjoy it as if I were a kid again. I also have read Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass countless times as well and who knows, it probably will be some of my beach reading this summer when I go on vacation.There is one scene in particular that I really love where it shows this encounter that Alice has with the Cheshire Cat.Here's what I love about this scene: it reminds me of us. Jeremiah 17:9 says: "The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?"In Romans 3:22-24, it says:"This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus."We have all fallen short of God's standard. In other words, none of us know why we do the things we do. None of us can figure us out. It's why we the enneagram is so popular as well as any of those other personality tests that we tend to put our hope in and seek all these answers from. We're all broken and we're not all mad, but we are all messy. I find so much comfort in knowing that God is the one who can figure our hearts out. God looks at you and He looks at me and He doesn't need an enneagram to figure us out. He sees the hurts you can't remember that cause the behavior you can't explain. He chased you down and captivated you while you were in the midst of rebelling against Him. So I think that's good news today to remember that you are loved and that it doesn't depend on your behavior.

Daily Dilemma: Should I Let It Go Or Speak Up?
Dear Rebecca & Burns,I moved to the DFW area right before pandemic hit and my office just re-opened in June. I have finally made some friends--we meet for dinner one night a week and I'm so thankful. My dilemma is this - I don't drink and I never order dessert, but this group splits the check evenly every time. It sticks me with much more of the bill than it should, and I don't like it.How can I handle this in a way that won't put off my new friends?

Daily Dilemma: I Am Uncomfortable With The Way My Granddaughter Dresses
Dear Rebecca & Burns,I have a delicate situation. I am uncomfortable with the way my teenage granddaughter dresses. I have even had one of my friends ask how her parents let her get away with some of her outfits. I know that my daughter and son-in-law don't love unsolicited advice, but I am embarrassed to take my granddaughter places with me. She lives a mile away so I am very involved in her life.What is the best way to handle this?
