Marrying a Man with Porn Struggles – Russell Moore offers up a great response to this question: Should I marry a man who struggles with pornography?

Group Bible Study – This is a helpful article on effective group Bible study. “It’s six o’clock Wednesday evening. Your church’s mid-week Bible study starts in one hour but you don’t feel like going.

Interview with Groothuis – City of God blog has an interview with Douglas Groothuis who has recently published his magnum opus, a textbook on Christian Apologetics.

Family Worship Month – I’m not one who tends to participate in things like family worship month or family worship Sunday. Neither am I one to sign declarations. But I did want to draw attention to this site, this effort, and this declaration.

—D.L. Moody
