Let’s do something different today. It’s Friday, the end of the month, and spring break is around the corner for many families. Instead of a regular post, I would like to share some posts that have encouraged, challenged, and inspired me during March.
The inspiration for this blog comes from Jeaninallhonesty who does this type of post weekly. I appreciate the time she takes to share her ‘best of the best’ in blogs and books.
Jean at Jeaninallhonesty writes in Following the Fearful Apostle:I came to you in weakness with great fear and trembling. (1 Cor 2:3 NIV) “These words startle and comfort me. They remind me that the apostle Paul felt like I do. He was weak. He feared. He trembled.1 This is exactly how I feel…”
Jean shares “If women commit to reading books of solid theology, their knowledge of Christ will grow…’This is the most delightful pursuit any woman could ever know’ in her post Why Women Should Read More Theology
Lisa at Abundant Fruit & Olive Shoots inspired me with her post, Resolution, “The resolutions of Jonathan Edwards are perhaps the greatest resolutions ever written. The list of 70, written in the early 1700’s by a preacher, theologian and missionary are still around and are as useful today as they were to this man several hundred years ago.”
John Piper’s older post, Reading as a Lifetime Vocation is an inspiration to this homeschooling mom to encourage ‘active reading’. He writes,“It is of the utmost importance that college students stop trying to fill their head with facts and start trying to form the habit of fruitful, active reading. Almost all the facts will be forgotten. But the skill and discipline and love of good reading will go on bearing fruit 30, 60, 100 fold.”
