Book Review: Catching Foxes by John Henderson

I have read a lot of good, helpful books on marriage. I’ve read Keller, I’ve read Tripp, and while I like all the books I review (or else why would I recommend them), I don’t think I’ve ever said this is “the best” book on the subject … until today. I think Catching Foxes by […]

The Importance of Weakness (pt. 4)

(Part 1) (Part 2) (Part 3) since you seek proof that Christ is speaking in me. He is not weak in dealing with you, but is powerful among you. 2 Corinthians 13:3 For he was crucified in weakness, but lives by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but in dealing […]

The Importance of Weakness (pt. 3)

I purposely started with prayer because if I’m going to struggle with a discipline, it’s this one. The last couple of weeks we’ve discussed Matt. 6:5-15, 1 Thess. 5:16-18, and  Phil 4:4-7. We started our discussion with the fact […]

Here’s what I’ve been reading as I’ve swung around the web. I hope you find them as helpful and/or encouraging as I did. ChurchLeaders.com had a great post about youth ministry as a elective. It reads, “A student who chooses youth group simply as an elective and misses out on these memory-making events will naturally […]

He writes,”… the Holy Spirit uses the elements of a whole-church worship service to help kids grow in faith.” It’s a good read for all my kidmin friends as well as parents. Tim Briggs […]

Idolatry in Marital Conflict

I’m reading the book Catching Foxes (don’t let the title fool you) by John Henderson. It claims to be a pre-marital book, it is not. It is a book on the entirety of marriage, from before it begins and progressing forward.  Here is the most resent quote (and there have been many) I’ve read that rocked my world: […]
