A La Carte (11/2)

Keeping Up with the Mondays - I have found great value in marking Sundays as a day set apart from the rest of the week. It was no surprise, then, that I enjoyed this article where Cap Stewart explains that the best way to beat a case of the Mondays is to enjoy a rest the day before.

It’s open to all women college-age and up and will feature Mary Kassian as the keynote speaker. It look like it will be a great event!

Logos 5 - Logos has just released the newest version of their Bible software. There are too many new features to list, so i’ll leave you to visit the site and check it out if that’s of interest to you.
