Are you looking for activities for your kids this summer? Look no farther than a good book! Curled up on a couch immersed in a dog-eared copy of a classic book of literature is truly an exercise in building good character in your children, according to author and scholar, Karen Swallow Prior. Wednesday on Morning with Eric this award winning professor of English at Liberty University makes the case for reading as a school for virtue in her new book, On Reading Well: Finding the Good Life through Great Books.
2019 marks the four-year anniversary of the Mother Emanuel church shooting in Charleston. After a 21-year-old white supremacist opened fire in the church, nine African Americans lay dead--leaving their families and the nation to grapple with this senseless act of terror. Emanuel is a documentary that features intimate interviews with survivors and family members after this horrible tragedy that shook the nation. This is a story of people remaining steadfast in their faith and choosing to forgive, creating a ripple effect of healing and peace throughout their community.
