God Made You a Writer

In this article Dave  Mathis of Desiring God invites every Christian to consider how writing is a central element to our faith. “The Christian gospel has a way of making us all writers in some way, shape, or form. From text messages, emails, and written notes, to church newsletters, missionary support letters, blogs, articles, and even books, everyday Christians do a lot of writing — and chances are you do too.”

Oasis Friend

I loved this article from Sheila Gosney of True Woman, Be An Oasis to Wives in Desert Marriages. All of her tips are spot on. I’m printing it out and sticking it in my ministry binder. (Yep, I have a binder for just about everything.) Please read this a few times, and then be that person. So many women are hurting in their marriages and they need supportive sisters in their lives.

For Church Planting Wives

If you don’t yet know Christine Hoover, you really should check out her blog Grace Covers Me. Her book The Church Planting Wife came out when we were a baby church plant, and I devoured it! Glad she’s back from her summer sabbatical and encouraging us through her writing again.

Eve, Mother Of All Living

I will never stop loving the story of Eve- the story of grace in the garden. The grace that is often overshadowed by the curse if we aren’t looking close enough. In this article from A Narrow-Minded Woman we are given a lovely overview of Eve and her story.

For the Car Ride

Renewing Your Mind with R.C. Sproul: Holy Boldness “The early church was bold in its proclamation of the Gospel.” This audios is one of many sermon clips carrying us through the book of Acts. (26 minutes)

One More Thing!
