Reviewing Books Just Got a Little Easier

I love to read. I love to read multiple books at the same time. I love to post about what I’m reading, how I’m applying it and a review of almost everything I read on my blog(s). I love to post the best quotes from what I’m reading. Now it just got easier with Crossway’s […]

The Hard Work Of: Being Present

Tell me if you can relate. You are in a social setting by choice. You are with people you care about. You get into a deep conversation with them and then for whatever reason, you check out and miss part of the conversation. It happens easy enough, right?

How We Get Joy Wrong

As I write this post I have to admit, I’m not a joyful person. I’m not sad and unhappy, but I’ve noticed I’m not really joyful either. I’m somewhere in the apathetic middle. Maybe (and by that I mean probably) some of you are like me. If you are, my hope and prayer is that […]

Here’s what I’ve been reading as I’ve swung around the web lately: LifeWay had a post on ways to become a better listener. It reads, “When we listen to someone, we are saying (without words) to that person that he is of value to God and also of worth to us.” Pastors and parents, there […]

Web Slinging 6.23.15

Here’s what I’ve been reading online in the past week as I swung around the web: Chelsea Vaughn had a post on Gospel-Centered Discipleship on the topic of rebellion and rest. She wrote, “My rebellion is not reckless defiance, but rather a doubtful and disbelieving heart.” We all struggle, that’s a reality. This post helped […]

Web Slinging 6.17.15

Here’s what I’ve been reading as I’ve swung around the web: John Piper wrote on getting faith from the head to the heart. He says, “Jesus meant for truth in the head to waken passion in the heart …” I needed to hear this; evidently so did Piper, therefore my guess is so do you. […]
