Recommended Reads

There was a day when I read multiple blogs a day. I kept up with blog posts and regularly would check back for new additions. There came a day when life no longer gave time for an hour + of blog reading. Now, it’s amazing if I read a blog post a week. This week, I have read multiple posts online. All are stellar articles that are solidly grounded in biblical teaching and principle. All four posts are quick reads…short, sweet, and to the point! They have encouraged my soul and drawn me closer to the Savior. I wholeheartedly recommend you take the 5-10 minutes to read them all. Enjoy!!!

It’s a common, but faulty way to argue against an idea. Anyway, since the term “complementarian” now conjures up such scary stereotypes, I thought it would be fun to parade some of the most popular straw women out across the stage so they could take a bow—and hopefully bow out. Here they are…” Read Blog Post HERE

How Do I Get My Faith Back? – “It’s a fight to keep our faith in Jesus strong. But it’s not by our own strength – Hebrews tells us that since we have a great high priest in heaven Jesus, the Son of God, who is interceding for us day and night before the throne that we should hold fast our confession.  And because he is a sympathetic priest who was tempted like us in every way (but without sin), we should regularly draw near to him in prayer for mercy and grace in time of need (Hebrews 4.14-16)…” Read Blog Post HERE
