Christian Parenting 101 – Jason Helopoulos: “Some of my greatest joys in life stem from being a parent to two delightful children. However, some of my greatest struggles in life also stem from being a parent to these same two children.

Adding Color to Historic Photos – “Artist Mads Madsen has an amazing skill for colorizing old black and white photographs. Even beside their original counterpart the results are impressive, bringing a new dimension of realism to historic images.”

Works Worth Declaring – This article was my first exposure to a new blog. It is a powerful testimony to the Lord’s grace through suffering.

Hidden Spitfires – This is an amazing story: “Burma’s first large-scale export since the suspension of sanctions may well be 36 World War II Spitfire fighter planes buried at Rangoon’s Mingaladon Airport in 1945, according to the man who found them, David Cundall.”

—John MacArthur
