I’ve rounded up some thought-provoking reading from the last couple of weeks:
Help Me to See Sin as You See It.
What Does It Mean to Find My Hope in Christ? HT to The Story Warren.
7 Mistakes We Make in Women’s Bible Study.
What I Learned About Marriage by Losing My Husband.
Three Steps to Better Doctrinal Disagreements, HT to Challies.
I Was a Disney Princess, I Had an Abortion, and It Almost Ruined My Life, HT to Challies.
Racial Reconciliation: What We (Mostly, Almost) All Agree On, and What We (Likely) Still Don’t Agree On, HT to Challies. Kevin DeYoung did a good job here of laying out the complexity of the issues. This is why one-sided, simplistic suggestions for solutions are not helpful.
Discernment muscles. This is so important to teach our children.
6 Graces…For When We Are Our Own Harshest Taskmasters.
4 Ways to Take Your Time Management to the Next Level. “Balancing the tyranny of tasks and the tenderness of meaningful relationships continues to be my walk on the razor’s edge. The prudent use of little minutes requires a few good practices that become habits over time.”
The Theology and True-Life Tragedy behind Hallmark’s Hit Show, “When Calls the Heart”, HT to Challies. I have not seen this show, but years ago I read the series on which they were based, written by Janette Oke. She began my love for Christian fiction. “If you give your life to Jesus, Oke believed, you can know how much he loves you, and his love can comfort when life is hard. This is the theology Oke put in her romance novels…It was Augustinianism in a bonnet, in a made-up prairie patois. It was evangelicalism for the everyday lives of women who knew how life could be. It was a story for all those who are weary and burdened, who just wanted to give the weight of their lives over to Jesus.”
How to Save Your Privacy From the Internet’s Clutches, HT to Challies. Scary! And I admit I don’t understand a great deal of what’s discussed here.
And lastly, most of us are able to identify with this, especially this year! (Seen on Facebook – don’t know the original source.)

Thanks for sharing the Graces post, Barbara … and I love that spring ‘how to dress’ guide.
Oh so spot on for those of us in the northeast, for sure!
Have a lovely weekend with your loved ones …
Hahaha that is definitely an Albertan’s mode of dress in the spring. Thanks for sharing that post of women’s bible studies. As a leader of one it was good to be reminded of those things. I have saved that post to reread every once in a while.
I have bookmarked this post as there are many titles catching my eye. I had to smile at the cartoon because I just watched the local weather report and it is EXACTLY right! LOL
Fun to find that time management post featured here!
