Man on the home front

I was thrilled to see the cover of your Aug. 13 issue. Our 36-year-old son is a homeschooling dad and doing a great job. I can’t wait to share the article with him as he feels the “stigma” of being in the reverse role.
     —Glenn Stutzman / Goshen, Ind.

Your fawning article about dads at home warms the heart but doesn’t really acknowledge what should be the Christian norm.
    —Bruce McKechnie / New Holland, Pa.

Sometimes the most loving thing I can do as a husband is to wash a sinkful of dishes. But the same God who tells me to love my family also tells me to provide for them. While that might look different in some contexts, the call for men to lead their households remains the same throughout Scripture and until the end of time.
     —Joshua Ramsey / Utica, Neb.

Neil Shenvi’s statement that stay-at-home dads should find meaningful, productive work made me cringe. Raising children and doing housework are meaningful and productive.
     —Karen Ouellette / Stafford, Conn.

Raiding Monticello

My wife and I visited the home of James Buchanan and were disappointed by similar attempts at social engineering. The first six minutes of a 30-minute video on this bachelor ­president’s life speculated about his sexual orientation. Perhaps they were desperate to make him relevant to today’s visitors.
     —Keith Crownover / Hollidaysburg, Pa.

Life on the rodeo circuit

God tells us in many passages to care for animals’ well-being. Rodeos exploit animals and cause them physical and emotional distress. Cole Elshere should find another way to point others to Christ. Shame on you for publishing and ­glorifying stories like this.
     —Gina Hinton / Gig Harbor, Wash.

I enjoyed Sharon Dierberger’s article about rodeos and mission opportunities. Great insights.
     —Roy Hall / Diboll, Texas

A fall outside a diner

Andrée Seu Peterson’s encouraging essay brought my own healing experiences to mind. Wherever Jesus is present, healing is possible. But whether it is through His gift of healing or of patient endurance, may God’s holy name in Christ Jesus be glorified!
   Lorena Suhayda / Snohomish, Wash.

From Communism to Christianity

Thank you for publishing the story of these two men’s lives with such ­moving testimony about their efforts to spread Christian culture in Russia and to help those harmed by the war in Ukraine.
    Jeff Moss / Palouse, Wash.

Killers among us

I hope you get a lot of nasty letters because of your ­sadistic statistics page on bird-killing cats.
     Anne Phillips / Wildwood, Fla.

This is newsworthy? What a silly waste of a page in your magazine. I am glad for the 200 “potential number of mammals killed every year” by cats. I read it as population control for rats, mice, voles, chipmunks, etc.
     Cindy Strahota  / St. Charles, Ill.

I would like to see a report in a few years on the city of Toronto and find out if it has a rodent problem after locking up all the cats inside.
     David Winkler / Dripping Springs, Texas
