Here are some good reads discovered recently – perhaps you’ll find something of interest here as well:
I Can’t Be Good Much Longer, HT to Challies. Loved this.
A Simple Way to Spend 45 Minutes a Day With the Lord.
A Post Mortem on A Year of Biblical Womanhood. I still haven’t gotten to this book yet, but Wendy brings up a serious issue with how the author handles the Word of God.
How Should I Handle Anger When Disciplining? I always appreciate Jen’s thoughtful and careful approach to topics.
I Won’t Force My Kids to Go to Church. Reasons to rather than not to, as I originally thought by the title.
Let Heroes of the Faith Teach You Today. Regular readers know I advocate reading biographies of Christians who have gone before us. Here is another reason to: “A diet consisting largely of blogs and books written by modern-day men and women who have lived a mere three, four, or five decades in affluent America is a recipe for spiritual malnutrition.”
Little House on the Prairie to Get a New Film Adaptation. I’m not sure how I feel about that. It will depend on how it is handled. I also enjoyed the links here to a segment with 8 of the TV show cast members together after some 20 years or so. Fun to see what they look like now!
Finally, I saw this video at The Story Warren and found more information on the typewriter artist, Paul Smith, here. He was born with cerebral palsy and not expected to live long, but he lived to be 85. He began using a neighbor’s discarded typewriter when he was about 11 and eventually began creating amazing works of art using only about 10 keys. What a reminder not to judge someone’s abilities and soul by outward appearances. And to concentrate not on what you can’t do but on what you can.
Great linkage! I am astounded over Paul Smith and his artwork! It just goes to show how you can still shine even with severe physical limitations. Like you, I’m not sure how I feel about a remake of “Little House on the Prairie”. Sometimes, it’s better to leave a classic TV series alone. Which reminds me, I need to sign up for your Laura Ingalls Wilder reading challenge. Have a great weekend.
