Attacking Anxiety

I highly suggest printing this one out and reading it over a few times. Lots of good stuff in here– Attacking Anxiety Biblically | Part One: Putting Off Fear “God has clearly said, “Do not worry.” That is not a suggestion, but a command. God doesn’t say, “I would be better for you if you didn’t worry, but it’s understandable if you.” Instead, He tells us to worry about nothing, not even worry about the essentials of life like food, water, and clothing! Jesus tells them in Matthew 6 that they are of little faith because they are concerned for those life essentials. That tells me that all types of worrying, even about reasonable things, is sinful in God’s eyes.”

Chick-fil-A Rolls Out G-Free Buns

This article is for my gluten-free friends. Since we don’t really have Chick-fil-A up here (I know, it’s tragic– I have never had Chick-fil-A), when you are enjoying this alternative bun, you can think of me… the girl who is missing out on what seems to be a delicious place!

What Is a Worldview?

What Is a Worldview?  “A person’s worldview represents his most fundamental beliefs and assumptions about the universe he inhabits. It reflects how he would answer all the “big questions” of human existence: fundamental questions about who and what we are, where we came from, why we’re here, where (if anywhere) we’re headed, the meaning and purpose of life, the nature of the afterlife, and what counts as a good life here and now. Few people think through these issues in any depth, and fewer still have firm answers to such questions, but a person’s worldview will at least incline him toward certain kinds of answers and away from others.”

The Joy of the Lord

The Joy of the Lord Is Your Strength “It’s not that Christians don’t want God to be happy, it’s just that we are slow to understand the theology that God is always, essentially, and completely happy. We may believe that he is sometimes happy — that makes sense to us. But is God always, essentially, and completely happy at the core of his being?”

The First Pancake

Don’t lose these ladies with all the name-changing they’ve been doing — first Women’s Hope, then Unspeakable, now Women’s Hope again. Search for “Women’s Hope” on your podcatcher and grab some of these episodes. This one is Ep. 45: The First Pancake “Do you throw out the first pancake to get the griddle heat just right? Unlike that first pancake, you might want to hang on to this episode on a woman’s identity in Christ rather than her roles. At the very least, see if you can tell the Kims apart.” (31 minutes)
