Another king-sized linkage post! You have nothing else to do today, right?
I think I link to this every year, but Mary at Owlhaven always inspires me with her September Grocery Challenge. She has way more kids than I do and pinches pennies to see if she can get through the month spending just $300 on food.
This made me laugh: What to Say When Your Child Blathers on About Minecraft. (this is my life)
Show Them Jesus: a helpful thing to keep in mind for parents of church-raised kids. It’s harder for them to see the Gospel sometimes.
Encouragement to keep on keeping on from Tim Challies: The Spasmodic Hercules. “We tend to overestimate how much we can grow in a short period, and underestimate how much we will grow over a long period, provided we simply take hold of God’s ordinary means.”
Introspection Time for Evangelicals: “A desperate, angry, apocalyptic tone of social engagement alienates many people, including some of the children of those who practice it.”
College Girls: Education, Imago Dei, and the Gospel: “We educate girls and women for the same reason we educate boys and men. We educate our daughters because they are made in God’s image. Full. Stop.”
And please go read this…it’s a treasure. Letters to the Children of Troy. I’ve attached EB White’s letter below.
Have a great weekend!
