Some Good Reads This Week:
What do Ann Voskamp, Beth Moore and Sarah Young Have in Common? - "The purpose of this article is not to demonize any of these sisters, but to carefully and lovingly warn and exhort them and other women to be more diligent in studying the Word, seeking wisdom and biblical teaching from their husbands (if they're Christians), submit to their husbands' headships whether or not they are Christians (1 Cor 7:13-16, 2 Peter 3:1-2) and imitate the faith of those who are singularly faithful to God and His Word—with no deviation or imaginations (Heb 13:7, 2 Tim 1:13-14, 2 Cor 10:4-6)."
The "Me Time" Myth - "But, Me Time isn’t the glorious missing piece in our lives. Life actually isn’t all about us, as some would have us believe. Our time belongs to God, to our children and our husband, AND to us. There is no such thing as Me Time. Maybe we should just call it Time When I’m Not Physically in the Same Room With My Children."
A Shift in the Homeschooling Movement - "My heart has been heavy for the future of this movement. In recent months, the homeschooling community has been rocked by a couple of national scandals involving some of the best-known speakers/advocates of homeschooling in America. As a result, many families are struggling to find their sense of “True North.” Many feel angry, some hurt, others betrayed, and more confused."
On my Bulk Herb Store Wishlist - Drink to Health Kit. We've been enjoying a pot of tea as a family together in the evenings and the teas and books included with this kit look like a good addition to our tea and health library.
What I'm Reading - Not by Sight: A Fresh Look at Old Stories of Walking by Faith by Jon Bloom - Some dear friends passed this one along and the timing was perfect as we were going to be spending time this week with unbelieving family so Chapter 23 was a blessing.

"Being a biblical peacemaker has its price. You can expect to upset unbelievers who openly oppose God's Word as well as believers who compromise its truth for the sake of maintaining "peace" among people of differing doctrinal persuasions. Some will call you narrow-minded and divisive for dealing with controversial issues. Some will misunderstand your motives or even attack you personally. But that's been the path of every true peacemaker-- including our Lord Himself. Take heart and be faithful. Your efforts to bring peace show that you are a child of God." ~John MacArthur
