Why I Married A White Girl – I enjoyed this post from Trip Lee: “Whenever I post pictures of my family on social media, the responses are always fun. The most common are, ‘Your son is so handsome!’ or ‘What a beautiful family!’ But one of the other common responses is, ‘Is your wife white?’”

One Vital Lesson – Douglas Phillips of Vision Forum Ministries recently resigned because of “lengthy, inappropriate relationship with a woman.” David Murray reflects and warns.

Chartbeat Rising – Ever wonder what the Internet is talking about? Chartbeat Rising attempts to display it in real-time.

Logos – Logos users will want to grab The Works of Richard Sibbes (volume 1) which is this month’s free book from Logos.
