She is also a regular columnist for CWR magazine.   In this talk, Cindy critically examines the inherent problems and consequences of raising children under the "first law" of the classic tract, The Four Spiritual Laws.  Law #1 states "God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life." Cindy offers an alternative, especially in the context of unfundamentalist parenting: "God loves us.
